I thought my business would work itself

Overview

Nankabirwa Alice owns a stationery shop in Kalangala. She has been running her business in an informal way that doesn’t guarantee sustainable output or a solid competitive advantage. She took it for granted that having a business would automatically guarantee positive results whether she put in the right effort or not.

In her won words…

“My Name is Nankabirwa Alice, I have been Opening my shop at any time I feel like. I never knew that I have to take 100% responsibility for whatever is done in my business. I lacked the values and principles to run the business. Kyusa came in with the business training and I wanted to know how to generate more income so I attended the classes. I have been able to discover my dependable strength such that I can integrate them into my business. I also learnt how to position myself to gain a competitive advantage. I now know the features and benefits of different services and products in my business. After setting up my mission and vision, I have discovered that I have to actively set values and principles which in the long run will guarantee my business’s success and sustainability. I thank Kyusa people for the free business knowledge offered to me.”
