If we want our nation to be progressive we need to teach as many people as possible to be enterprising and show them many ways they can do it. Many times, we just don’t need to rely on finding jobs because as we know it is hard for some to do it, for too many reasons.We need to empower them to make their dreams come true.
Like what was said in our Red Crab case, Raymond mentioned that you have to create your own segment because through this you can tap the opportunity of making your business a success.
