MTN came to Nigeria at a time when nobody wanted to invest in Nigeria, at a time when Nigerians did not have phones. Even Zenith Bank refused to loan MTN cash to operate, UBA rejected MTN’s offer but today see the difference. What about Cowbell? When they came to Nigeria, they made milk in a sachet, Peak was laughing at them – they said Cowbell was milk for the poor – but they were right!
3-million poor people could afford N10 a day for a sachet of milk.
Do the math – 3 million people buying milk at N10.00 – that was N30million every single day. In a month they grossed N900million (almost N1billion). Even PEAK had to make sachet milk in order to SURVIVE in the MARKET.
So what have people told you? What have they said you cannot do, or you do not qualify for, or you do not have experience for? They told Cowbell, they told MTN, but today the STORY has CHANGED. I have a feeling something is changing for you today! They will change their strategies just to keep in step with you. Don’t listen to what people are saying or what life is showing you.
YES, YOU CAN.
Success is not about where you graduated from, or what grade you graduated with, but what graduates
