We learned that his number one success ingredient is consistent discipline. He also shared stories from his life journey so far on how he transformed challenges to an opportunity for growth. This personal narrative practically shows that he is the embodiment of ‘Yichalal’ mindset.
On our challenge presenter session.we had Mr.Fitsum Arega from Ethiopian investment commission. He talked about Industrial parks especially show casing the case of Hawassa . Though industrial parks offer a lot of advantages in various aspects it doesn’t mean they are free of challenges. Mr Fitsum pointed out main pertinent issues that have to be overcome so that parks can become more productive. What he shared was very important to urban entrepreneurs and those who aspire to become one, because it gave an insight on how current challenges can be capitalized on to be converted into a problem to solved and an opportunity to be seized by entrepreneurs.
