In business, look for one person who can buy your one million naira product.
Just one person.
Trying to get one million people to buy your one naira product requires more work and less money…
And if you do manage to sell to one million people, you would have diminishing health as
your reward.
Then you’d have to use all the money you made to keep yourself alive.
Make money. But think of your mental health.
