A very good example is me. A couple of years ago , I had a very fantastic job. After a few months the company had many issues and could no longer afford to pay us the staff. After looking for another job for several months to no avail , I decided to start buying and selling of kids clothes from the booth of my car. That didn't turn out so good. So i then decided to sell women's clothes.
The business started from the booth pf my car, to my living room to a store in Victoria Island , Lagos. It took me only 2 years of selling from home to eventually opening a store. Now my store is 2 yrs old and counting!
It hasn't been easy, but its been worth it.
The opportunity in my own case started when I lost my job. What situation are you in that seems like a black hole? Look close and hard at it. There is a big opportunity lurking there somewhere. Don't give up until you find it.
If you are ever in this part of the world (Nigeria) , do stop by my store to say hello.....
