A book written to offer hands-on guide on how anyone can be gainfully self-employed has been released.
Authored by Richmond Gbenga and Gertrude Opare, 47 Ways to Win profiles 47 practical business ideas that anyone can take advantage of as a viable alternative to job search.
“The book was written as an intervention project to curb the alarming rate of youth unemployment in Ghana and other African countries,” a release about the book said.
It has been grouped into five broad categories of Fashion, Beauty and Fitness, Creativity and innovation, Education and Technology, Property Management and Enterprise with each “way” offering “opportunity for the reader to make money and impact – using readily available resources”.
“For each Way to Win, the authors identify a specific problem, ask you introspective questions, highlight for you the opportunity in the problem and how to cease it, give you a general feel of the difficulty level of the idea, present a vivid appreciation of monthly financial gains, and conclude by empowering you with the secret to success.”
As regards the authors, while Mr Gbenga is a self-empowerment coach (SEC) with 8 years cognate experience, Mrs Opare is a young African woman who has self-empowerment advocacy in Africa at heart.
