A couple of years ago, I heard an amazing story about an entrepreneurial business in the musical instrument world. A highly qualified engineer, in his retirement, teamed up with his son to develop a special niche-business in the brass instrument field.
Specially adapted, almost tailor-made individual instruments were partially assembled overseas and then completed here in the UK. The company did very well and was appreciated by many satisfied clients.
Such creative and innovative initiatives are so encouraging to discover. May many more folk take such steps to bring pleasure to others while generating valuable income for their own families and communities.
In an African country, a keen micro-business trainer has enabled 11 potential business managers to draft their Business Plans and also to move forward step by step towards full operation in some cases. The potential business folk are refugees and thus they are keen to succeed and be enabled to provide more responsibly for their families.
Another couple of trainers are holding seminars for potential micro-business owners. These are proving most valuable and they are seeing good progress.. The training and mentoring of these projects is an excellent example of sustainability.
