Hello Family, I believe we are all in good health. I’d like to share my story with you, and hopefully it will inspire & encourage you to do better.
We all dream about stumbling onto that perfect job posting, one that combines our skills, interests, and expertise into one ideal position. But even if you combed through all of the three billion job listings posted at any given moment, you still might not come across this job. What happens when You Realize You’ll Never Get Your Dream Job?
This was my case all my life. I’ve always wanted to be a mechanical engineer but the odds were against me. Due to financial difficulties I settled for a bachelors Degree in Forestry under government sponsorship program. I never liked my field of study and in my first year it affected my grades. Then I met some young man who later became my closest friend who would encourage me to do better despite the stigma. Later I was awarded a scholarship to study in Israel to further my studies. The lessons learnt and experience gave me the zeal to do better.
Back in Zambia my friend and I started a non profit organization called passion for greens. An environmental organization adept at fostering environmental protection. As well as teaching practices children skills to innovate even with limited resources. He went ahead and started a company art for climate Zambia which specializes in waste recycling. And I started my start up tech company.
Just as Parents teach their children morals, etiquette, religion, sports, cooking, riding a bicycle, reading, writing, math, discipline, safety, driving a car...the list goes on and on. What if we could teach children the life-long ability to innovate? What a gift indeed. Can children learn systematic creativity at such an early age? Absolutely. That is my motivation to represent the region and my country Zambia.
Our company, NetaGrow, was born out of this hope for a better future. Our aim is to create a platform that gives everyone the skills to develop their own problem solving products and that by teaching people the skills of design, coding and electronics; we can empower them to build a better tomorrow.
Taking the risk of taking the initiative, rather than waiting for a call is a good start. If there’s something I’ve learnt in the past few years is that Never wait for opportunity. Create it.
Your success lies in your own hands. You must therefore not wait for the grass to become greener by magic. You have the hands to irrigate your own territory by doing what is expected of you.
It took me a while to realise it but when I did, I worked hard for it. With limited resources & I’d signup for free online lessons. Here I am now, with a startup tech company That is specialised in Professional, scientific and technical Activities which include research and experimental development on natural sciences and engineering.
Don't wait for what you don't have. Use what you have, begin now and what you don't even expect will come alongside with excess of what you expect. Go, make it happen. It's called entrepreneurSHIP, not entrepreneurSTAY. Don't wait. Just ship.
