Ghanaian actress, Nana Ama Mcbrown says women should stop buying expensive Brazilian or Peruvian hair but rather use the money to start their own business.
Nana Ama urged to women to make use of technology to market their small business to desist from buying expensive hair to look when they can get equally nicer ones at a cheaper price.
“You don’t have to always depend on your parents for monies, what becomes of you if they die? you can start business with your mobile phones, you can do business after lectures, use the Brazilian or Peruvian money to start your own enterprise, what is the point in spending GHC1,000-GHC1,500 on wigs?, you could be venturing into hairdressing, blogging, dressmaking or even bead making by selling your products on online with your phones which will fetch you lots of money. Be serious with your studies and use social media to get money as well, there is nothing wrong combining studies with business,”she admonished.
Nana Ama Mcbrown intimated that she worked hard to reach the status she is now.
‘You will go hungry if you don’t focus. Determination and courage will take you to places. Be ready to serve people with humility so that you will also be served in future,’ she advised.
She urged the students to desist from impressing people by leaving beyond their means.
