It started off with an idea about bikes, then it was an idea about laptops. Then it was something else I can’t even remember. One moment we wanted to be evil capitalistic money lenders, now we are are a charity out for social good.
The thing about entrepreneurship is that you never know what you’re getting yourself into. This is especially true for this my group and I. Every meeting is a turn in the road. Many times we went 180 degrees on what we had. If the business plan is a living document, ours is has mutated more times than the flu virus. Our plan keeps changing even after we have set our minds on the macro objectives. However it is something that I think is very necessary, and at the moment, its an advantage.
Obstacles there were many, of course. There is the paper work. Of course. Lucky for us, our CEO deals with most of the government, the little that I had to go through as part of the group its not easy. Filling up the same forms again and again.
Well with that behind us would be putting the plan to work. There is another big unknown. A sea of possibilities await us. There one island of success out there, lets hope we can find it.
