One of the most crucial things a person must own so as to survive economically is a small business or an enterprise. (Life appears better and more enjoyable when you establish a business of your own and operate it successfully). I said somewhere on 5th April, 2008 when presenting a seminar paper on the tips for starting and operating successfully small business that: “if you don’t own a business, you don’t own anything”. No person was bold enough to argue or contest my statement.
Whether you agree or not, you don’t own a business, you don’t own anything and you can’t experience the real joy of owning a business. Yes, whatever we own gives us joy. They make us feel somehow. If you have a good car, you experience the joy attached to owning or riding a good car. If you are saved or born again as a Christian, you experience the joy of salvation. Whatever you have will give you joy. But what you don’t have, you can’t experience the joy of owning it. Therefore, I refer to the joy of owning a business as one of the best joys that an individual can experience. Those who own small businesses like me will agree with that fact. Whereas, those who do not have any business will ignore my statement. Joy is more than joy, some joy are far better.
