The Chief Executive Officer of the EIB Network Nathan Kwabena Anokye Adisi popularly known as Bola Ray has urged young entrepreneurs to endeavor to persist on their dreams despite the challenges that may come their way.
Sharing his personal experiences as CEO of the media conglomerate, the businessman said despite the successes that the young company has registered, it has been hit with an equal amount of storm.
Speaking at Youth Empowerment Summit (IYES) 2019, at the National Theater in Accra, Bola Ray told the aspiring business owners that their ability to withstand challenges is the true test of their character.
“In the month of August 2018, I had a lot of people walking away because it was difficult…someone came to me and said ‘My wife is insulting me because I have not been able to take money home for some months now’ …….It got to a point that anybody who walks into my office, I ask: ‘Are you resigning,” a candid Bola Ray said.
He stressed “Out of 483 workers we started EIB with, we still have some great people out there making about 300 who are still with us and across the nation. These guys stayed and said even if it is 6 or 7 months, we will be with you…..now we’ve been able to reduce it to about 2 or 3 months”.
