A jack of all trades. Serial entrepreneur. Crazy business adventurer. Daring businessman. Never-say-never opportunist.
These are some of the words that have been used to describe one man in the past. But today, he officially launched a project that made him put pen to paper describing his journey so far.
Trained as a Veterinary Doctor but now a successful entrepreneur Dr. Innocent Nahabwe has on Friday launched his maiden book titled ‘Treating Small Business: Lessons From My Operations’.
The 38 year, who co-owns Club Amnesia, Blue Cube, Galaxy FM, Kagwirawo Sports Betting, among other entities, has had an eventful life having growing up and but even more eventful experience as an entrepreneur having started a plethora of businesses along the way.
“One of the main reasons for writing and publishing this book is to inspire Ugandans out there to take on this entrepreneurship journey without fear. If we each one employed two to three people we would change Uganda quickly” he said at the launch held at the newly launched Kingdom Kampala.
“I am overwhelmed by the response this book has received. Jumia Uganda, who are selling the book online, recently called me to say that they have never sold as many copies for a Ugandan book in this short period of time! They are quite surprised – and so am I.”
The launch, which also doubled as a networking event for many, was graced by top executives and players from the media, entertainment, marketing and tourism industry in Uganda. Notably, Ugandan business Sudhir Ruparelia was the Guest of Honour at the event.
On his part, Dr Sudhir said if someone builds a good foundation with consistency, the sky will be the limit since Uganda is a land of opportunities.
“Consistency is key, you will fall but believe in yourself. Work hard. Do something for yourself.God helps those who help themselves,” he said.
Adding, “Life is a journey.Life is about how you control your destiny and how you use your life to change that destiny.”
The Ruparelia Group of Companies Chairman also revealed that the most important thing in doing business is keeping your word.
Meanwhile, ‘Treating Small Business: Lessons From My Operations’ is available on Jumia, Kindle, Aristoc and other major bookstores countrywide.
