“Hands of Love is a youth-centric NPO focused on the upliftment of teenage girls in South African townships.” – Hands of Love Facebook description.
I was humbled by being given the opportunity to speak to impressionable young women about running a business and how to start doing so yourself. I gave them advice on career choices to inspire them and to urge them to go on and succeed in following their dreams.
“What a privilege it was to speak to these girls about entrepreneurship and career choices and end off this amazing seminar in prayer.”
Through collaboration, making someone’s dream a reality is a possibility. At the Hands of Love Girls Power Seminar, NueCleo partnered with a few of the speakers to put together two business startup prizes.
If I could give 5 pieces of advice to my younger self it would be:
- You may be young, but don’t only focus on today, consider how your actions can impact your future
- Money is not an obstacle
- The right collaboration will get you places quicker than you could yourself
- Don’t despise humble beginnings
- Hard work and consistency pays off
