In the next ten years if Christ tarries, beginners in business who do not have enough education will find it very difficult to cope. It takes seeing ahead to plan to cope with the future (cons. Prov. 22:3; 29:18).
Apart from working hard through opening your shop or office early, regular study of the market, and wisely investing your money, the youth of today that wants to excel in business has to up grade himself academically, in the areas of book-keeping so as to keep records of the stocks of goods and sales made, and to write simple letters of order for goods through the Internet, in addition to proper learning of the business. In this jet-age, many youths jump into business without learning it at all, or properly. This is one of the reasons why many fail after starting a business (Eccl. 10:15).
If you are not keeping records, you may not readily know the state of your business. Assuming the business is going down, you may not adjust or take some measures on time that will recover the business from collapsing.
If you are in a haste to be rich, you may consider the issue of up dating yourself a waste of time, but at the end of the day, you will find yourself very poor (Pro. 28:22). Let not poverty be your portion in Jesus’ name.
