The problem with threads like this is that people will turn it to a suitable place for babbling about becoming an entrepreneur

We all can't become entrepreneurs. Some people have to get paid while working with others to improve the existing businesses.

Most people calling themselves "entrepreneurs" in Nigeria are just mushroom traders or resellers or service providers. It's just the conditions of this goddamn country that is forcing lots of people into businesses, not because they're passionate about it.

When your boss brings someone to head you on a role you have been acting as the head or brings someone to understudy you.

For those in the banking sector, once you see this action, please take a counter action immediately!

as good as it is to be a business owner, the fact remains everyone can't be biz owner. the calling of some people is to create entrepreneurship while some people are destined to support that vision and this is where they will fulfill their own vision too. the wickedness of business owners in Nigeria is just the factor that is discouraging many potential employees and since God has helped you to be a business owner, my little advice is that "treat your employees humanely" as you can't do your work all by yourself.
