Nigerian Writer, Publisher and Philanthropist, Betty Irabor has a word of wisdom for young lads looking up to her in the entertainment world.
The renowned writer, took to her Twitter handle on Wednesday morning, December 23, to share a powerful lesson she has learnt after seventeen years of running her lifestyle magazine, Genevieve.
Ms. Irabor who started the magazine when she turned 46, wrote on Twitter;
”Starting GENEVIEVE mag at 46 with the onset of Mid life crisis was a whole new experience; sustaining it for over 17 years without adequate funding & poor infrastructure was the killer. We just kept at it; improvising all d way. That we are still here is by divine intervention
There are so many business lessons on failure and success I would like to teach using GENEVIEVE as a case study. You see this thing called passion?
Please please if it’s going to cost you your health, then it’s time to let it go… that wont count as failure on your part. It just means you chose your life over a threat to your life… I just got lucky that i stayed and survived.”
