Entrepreneurship is not about what you have, and how easy it is. It is about what you don't have, how you overcome this and how determined you are to make a statement and leave a legacy.
What has been your Biggest Hurdle?
Biggest hurdle was survival, like every other ICT entrepreneur, visibility is always difficult in the first years of going to market.
We worked endless hours to ensure that people came to know of us, we made sure to deliver projects with precision and excellence so that our clients would always be always be happy and do business with us for many years.
As such, the first clients that we had in year one, are still our clients to date !
