It is 1400 hours Kenyan time and I am thinking about the year that has gone by…..
What does 2013 hold for Africa as a continent and for its beautiful people…?
If global trends are anything to go by 2013 will be great for online businesses and if Africa hopes to reap gain from this trend it needs to remember a few things….
In 2013 we need to pay more attention to the products we are putting out there.If we expect to reap from the online business trends, we need to develop standards and regulations that ensure all products meet international standards .
In 2013 African governments need to develop policies that support the growing crop of entrepreneurs who are running small and medium-sized business because those are the future of business if global trends are anything to go by.
In 2013 we need to learn from the more developed countries that have industries going back centuries on what it takes to be great.
In 2013 we need to never tire of telling our businessmen and women eager to get into the international markets to never tire of perfecting their crafts ,products or solutions they put out there.
In 2013 Africa needs to tell its emerging entrepreneurs to know their trade so intimately they could give a lecture to prospective clients in their sleep.
In 2013 we need an Africa so daring in its ventures that the world sits up and listens.
In 2013 we need to groom African youth to be so enterprising they never look at donor aid as a gift but as a curse.
In 2013 African governments need to work together more for the future of millions of African children who will come after us.
If you think this is what Africa needs in the new year,please share the post and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!
