Starting Small in Business is a Training to Provide Opportunities- Ed Harrison
It was another gathering of business owners, entrepreneurs, prospective business owners and students at the 3rd edition of the Guaranteed to Succeed (GTS) seminar by Edward Harrison, the Global Cowboy Ministries at the prestigious Premier Hotel, Ibadan, Oyo state on 14th of March 2019. The seminar title “From Lack to Prosperity in God’s Way” was coined to prepare people on how to be successful in their businesses without losing the standard of God.
The convener, Ed Harrison, a Professional Horse Trainer and Evangelist in US Texas gave the people practical insight on what they can do to be exceptional in their businesses with greater results. The speaker who spoke from his experience as an amateur horse trainer to a professional and global phenomena said serving others is a way for people to get prepared for the future and it’s a training moment which will shape the person for bigger opportunities.
According to him “being small in a business is such a blessing, it provides you the opportunity to grow and learn for the bigger stage”. He said God can deliberately make us pass through hard ways so we can be strong for the work he has for us.
He added that attitude towards work is also very important which is one of the virtue needed to be successful. Being religious or spiritual in business isn’t enough for people to be successful in business or in life but certain attributes are required which includes punctuality, truthfulness and composure. Making reference to the bible in Ecc 9:10 “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…” in his words “you don’t work, you don’t live, don’t allow people to dictate how you act because they don’t treat you well”
While responding to a question on how Nigeria bill people based on their status, Harrison made reference to bible in proverb 11:1 that “a false balance is an abomination to the lord, but a just weight is his delight” he said the quality of product should be the prerequisite for billing. “If your quality deserves high price, sell it. Not because someone is rich and you inflate it. The will of God for you to be profitable not to break even”.
The programme ended with gifts items given to the attendees while prayer for success by the Evangelist was made to wrap up the event.
The Guaranteed to Succeed in its third edition has been a source of blessing to the youth, students, business owners and traders in the country. At the 2017 edition held at Nustream event center, Ibadan, a young entrepreneur, Akintunbosun Michael was given N50,000 to start up his business idea while others won different gifts to ease their businesses.
