Meet Felika Mahama, a University graduate who quit her full-time job to start a Mobile Car Wash business, Siggy reports.
Like many children, Felika Mahama had several career paths she wanted to follow in the near future and one of such careers was a counselor and the others included Air Hostess and an Artist.
As she grew up, the dream switched to the law space, and this time around, she was very sure of it. Just like that, Felika set out to become a Lawyer, and every decision she took from that point was geared toward fulfilling that dream.
With Law still her goal, Felika decided to study a Language program first because she felt it was very vital to lawyers.
“I decided to get my first degree in Languages and Integrated Development Studies first before I further to do law. I wanted to have a good hold of various languages because as a Lawyer, being fluent in a number of languages is very vital”, she said.
After her first degree, she had her mandatory national service with the National Commission for Civic education and took up a number of roles after.
“I worked at Jogobu Company Limited for a year, Dacoph Shipping Company for another one year, moved to Wekplace also for a year and then I joined the youth in afforestation (Forestry Commission) for about four years”
While advising potential business owners, Felika said: “My advice for anyone who intends to start their own business is that, they should be passionate, determined and focus. You should note that, people will be mean and talk down on you sometimes but you need to be patient and focus on your ultimate goal because when you let everything they say get to you, you might end up giving up.”
