CEO of embattled gold trading firm,Nana Appiah Mensah popularly known as NAM1 has revealed details of the excruciating pain, struggles and betrayals he has encountered as a Ghanaian entrepreneur.
According to him being an entrepreneur he has been betrayed by friends, backstabbed and gone through a tough legal battle.
Detailing his experience in a very long epistle, he took to his Instagram to write;
”Good morning to all entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs in Ghana, Africa and the world. May I pay my sincere respect, solidarity to defunct Ghanaian businesses. On this day, I choose to share the true life of an entrepreneur speakers at Seminars, Symposiums and Conferences shy away from divulging.
In your journey, prior to the scaling of your Company above gravitational height into the next level, your organization and yourself would go through moments of extreme pain and scrutiny. It is during these times that you as the chief player, must prove to be worthy of your office.
The momentarily fall doesn’t matter, what matters is your ability to rise up, dust up quickly and keep walking. Please don’t run even if you can, please walk until you gather momentum. It’s ok to be afraid but cease the fear by the horn.
It is ordained that, friends you dinned with must betray you, families must get worn out at a point, those you broke your spine for must actually stab you in the back. Janitors must spit on your face, you must suffer psychological torture and excruciating bodily pains.
Unfortunately, mum cannot breast feed you at that point. You may be separated from those you love for a long time. If you believe in God, your only refuge, must be under “nature’s” wings.
Learn to fight legal battles, kick some folks in the back if you strategically have to, be immune to pain if possible.“You don’t need to see the end of the staircase, just take the first step in FAITH” -Martin Luther King.<
In all the days of your life as an entrepreneur, you would have to wrestle with the ever present “force of gravity”, but note that, businesses, no matter the size and might, do not die by homicide, they die by suicide. You have a choice to make. Refreshingly, beyond all these lies the “bliss of success”. The choice is yours. Do you want to be an entrepreneur??”
NAM has announced that he would be addressing his aggrieved customers today in a press conference. Details have however not publicized
