Sports, art and culture — Time has come for us to commercialize and invest in art.
We have many examples of those earning a living from art and entertainment like those on the Churchill show. Technology space — We now have online writers, ICT consultants, App developers and technology solution to societal problems.
There are amazing and untapped challenges in this space, the E-commerce. Tenders and supplies — Let the youth be encouraged to register companies to engage in business with national and county governments, schools etc.
It is doable as a good number of youth who have tried this are making it. Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship Entrepreneurship is choosing part of your life to live and do things like most people will not and later spend the rest of your life like most people cannot.
