To Aspiring Entrepreneurs-A letter of encouragement

Many of us share the story of unemployment and feel frightened, yet nonetheless, powerless to make a significant change to acquire the wealth that Allah has in store for us.

It is not enough to just say “Allah will provide”. You have to get up and do something about your current state of finances. You possess talents that many others desire! Take some time to focus on these talents and allow them to be unleashed. Success does not happen overnight. Make your mind up. Do you want to be singing the same song next year around this time or even tomorrow? If you are anything like me you’re veins are bursting with the desire to be doing the things you most love and make money while doing them. You also want more time with your families and more time for yourself.

The society in which we live in is setup to make us dependent on one system. The system of capital and wealth. By the time you finished high school it was drilled in your head that acquiring wealth was the only way to freedom. You know nothing short of going to college to get a degree so that you could go and be a part of a firm helping your employer to achieve and sustain their dreams.

Entrepreneurship should have been a choice on the list of subjects taught to us in high school but then it would lead a bunch of young adults slaveless and independent on a system which is designed to make it almost impossible to totally independent and debt free.

I encourage you to think outside of the box you have been in since kindergarten. When you were given a list of careers to chase in high school did anyone teach you how to start and operate your own law firm or architect business? Probably not. You see the phrase “Knowledge is Power” means a lot in this case. The less they share with you the more you become less apt to be like them or better than them. It is very strange to me how they include home economics and technology as electives in school,when I was in school. What were they so afraid of? Your access to knowledge that would free you from economic slavery. Yes call it what it is!

I encourage all of you entrepreneurs to continue pushing through to achieve your dreams. Don’t give up, because you have what it takes!  Be adventurous, take one last look at the exits, plant your feet firmly and continue to move forward(Derrick Jones,Author of “Presidents,Pilots, and ENTREPRENEURS”)
