While you are keeping up with your business and striking lucrative deals, here are some insightful lessons from where the hustle is real – the market place with Joy Ogwale, a Grocery Store keeper in Surulere, Lagos.
- Price Margin: I don’t sell with high profit margin, I maintain a reasonable profit margin on my goods.
- Customer Treatment: I talk to my customers with respect and treat them with care so that they can always come back with the belief that if they get to Joy’s place, they will get what they want.
- Word of Advice: When young people complain of not having money, it makes me think that they are too proud or too lazy. I know I can’t do a day job, this is why I sell and there is no shame in that, provided you know what you want. So my advice to people out there is know what works for you and run with it no matter what.
Interesting perspective from Joy. Many thanks to you for reading, stay safe and continue to smash those business goals!
