Proactive Financial Services would like

Proactive Financial Services would like to highlight the spirit of entrepreneurship that is needed to turn the Jamaican economy around.
And for the budding entrepreneurs or the professionals who need a niche to earn extra income.
We call it More Water than Flour:
“‘More water than flour’ is a well-known indigenous phrase to Jamaica which can be interpreted to mean that there is literally more water available than flour. However, on a serious note, in relation to resources it means that there is shortage of some sorts; which could range from basic necessities such as food to pocket money.
In the harsh economic climate present now in the tropical island of Jamaica one has to be clever and crafty to know how to survive on a day to day basis. As such, we have to start brainstorming what is there that you can do that is profitable. What is it that you do very well? Have you been certified in a special skill? According to Ronald Reid, the Business Development Manager at Proactive Financial Services Limited, “we as a society need to start fostering young persons who can naturally develop entrepreneurial skills. They will in the long run help to stabilize the Jamaican economy and increase job opportunities.” He then further explained the need for courses on developing entrepreneurship in secondary schools which varied from personal development to pension plans.
The job that you want may not exist so you may have to find the nearest career or create the work you love. A lot of people love the idea of being their own bosses, however, most are not willing to put in the time, energy and applicable resources needed to start, grow and maintain a business. Andrew Khan, a young entrepreneur and owner of …., explained that to be a successful entrepreneur you must be highly motivated because in sharing your business idea with family and friends you may be ridiculed which could demotivate you.
To become an entrepreneur you have to also think the business concept through before putting actions to decipher whether or not the venture is worth trying. To help to find that possible inner entrepreneur you should consider the following which will deter you from wasting time and money on an idea that will not gain you profit.”
