City tycoon Chris Kirubi in his latest series of #AskKirubi has talked about empowering young people.
He says a nation that does not take care of its youth is a failed nation.
I believe that everyone should have an opportunity to participate in building our economy to steer national development. I also strongly believe that now is the perfect time for the youth to take a more prominent role in shaping our economic trajectory.
It is high time we enhance the personal and career development of our young people and make them employable or be skilled to be entrepreneurs. As we continue to push development across the country, may we focus on training young people in each county so that they become self-independent and job creators.
Kirubi added that,
I hope we can all work together to empower the young people of this country and I hope the young people in turn, will not let us down. A nation that does not take care of its youth is a failed nation.
In one of his social media posts, Kirubi advised people not to force themselves to do things they don’t like to.
If you don’t love what you do, don’t do it. I truly believe it’s that simple. You’ll have to put in long hours and make sacrifices for your business. If you’re not passionate about what you do, you won’t have the motivation to keep going when you’re stressed and tired.
Still, on advising young people, he said,
Never let self-doubt kill your dream. Keep working on yourself and your craft consistently. Learn to enjoy the process and the progress. You never know when your next opportunity will come so be patient, grateful, and stay grounded.
