South Africa. My name is Olayinka Adeniyi. My experience with the program was wonderful. I am a legal practitioner/researcher/women’s rights advocate. I am the CEO of Women on the Watch (WOW) Society Initiative, a non-profit business registered in South Africa. I am a pastor’s wife, a woman in ministry, and a mother of 3. I have a passion to see women fulfilled in life and ministry and young people living out their potential and fulfilling purpose. I am a motivational speaker and author of many books which include You and the Law, Help I’m a Girl, Secrets for Girls Only, The Woman Who Wins, Every Woman Must Pay, The Father’s Heart, Loving Your Wife God’s way.
Shortly before the information of this program, I had started some innovative ideas as profit-making and development programs for young people and women. Although I had been doing some things as a registered non-profit, I needed a business that would fetch me some money to run my ideas, pay bills and be self-reliant or fulfilled. However, I needed certification and a platform to do this despite my qualification and credentials. I didn’t know about business, promotion, the 6Ps, etc.. I have been running programs, impacting people, and giving out to the community or society but I was not doing anything business-like and so I was not fulfilled. This program came at the nick of the moment. Now, I can run my ideas successfully, I’m equipped for self-reliance. I’m so excited, I can’t wait for all I can do with what I’ve learnt. I came to realize that self-reliance is not about academic qualification or status. This course is not only just for the less educated, academics like myself can benefit from it. I have found a business within my passion, skill, and talent and I can run it business-like.
Brazil. My name is Lara Beatriz, and I have been the owner of a Travel Agency since 2014. In fact , I was afraid to make my agency grow because I did not know how to manage the finances and improve my relationship with the customers.
After a conversation with my friend Cynthya, about organization and financial planning of my home and personal expenses, I found it interesting how she organizes and separates expenses. That’s when she introduced me to MBS, I watched the videos and put into practice everything I learned, and started to know my business better, to know who my business competitors and the way they worked. I learned how to negotiate with my suppliers. Today I can say that I have more confidence in closing deals and making sales. I have a lot to thank Cynthya and the MBS for making me more confident.
Bolivia. Well, my name is Olga Jhurina Quispe Mamani. I am a civil construction technician. First of all, I would like to thank MBS because it was a great help to me personally. I did not know the 6 P’s of a business and thanks to MBS, I was able to give my business a name and associate myself with many more women that I met along the way and who encouraged me to carry out this business that has been born for a short time.
On April 6, 2022, it was our first meeting with my business colleagues, the name was born there and I was able to apply what I learned and also I told my colleagues about the 6 P’s that few knew about. It also helped me in my personal life that I have been able to set goals and fulfill them as the personal promise we made and I am fulfilling them thanks to you I already started with my entrepreneurship and always our coach Chaly is aware of our business plan, a very good mentor, who taught me that I deserve to be successful, that I have skills and talents, and to make my personal goals. Thank you very much for that teaching; I will never forget that above all especially now I already have my business that was born thanks to what they taught me. Thank you very much.
Congo. Hello. I am Mr. KASIMU AKIDA César, graduate in international relations at the University of Kindu, at the faculty of social, political and administrative sciences, Department of International Relations. I am Congolese (Congo Kinshasa). In short, I encourage others to follow this program that will somehow positively affect their lives as it is the case with me.
Personally, I can only thank my Mentor Success Ambassador (Mr. Ngenda ukunda Pau) for initiating me to follow the MBS course and my action partner for supporting me throughout my journey but also the Interweave Solutions. With this course I understood that although one can have assets, without the knowledge, it would be in vain. I already had a small business before taking the course but it was hardly evolving because I was working in the informal and ignorant way, but I have to admit that with this MBS program, my business of yesterday is not the one of today, it is evolving quite fast. Thank you and good luck to others.
Ecuador. When I started the course I did not know anything about business or paperwork or legal matters, when I started learning in the course it was interesting to know about these things that can help me not only in a business but also in life, having control of money and not that money controls me, learning to improve parts of my life that I didn’t know I could improve and setting goals to achieve my goals.
I am José García, from Ecuador, I am 23 years old and I am starting a business selling virtual objects on the internet that can be used in anything. I want to obtain the certificate so that I can know that the effort I put into learning was worth it and that I may be able to teach it to other people so that they can improve their quality of life.
Ghana. I am Francisca Anomah Agyin. I got the opportunity to start this MBS course through Mr. Harrison Anim Frimpong. After asking him about the course his explanation blew my mind and I decided to start and enroll by his guidance. I had a YouTube channel before this course and I did not see anything wrong with my business process until we covered the details about processes.
I asked those that gave positive comments about one of my shared videos to tell me what they thought could be improved in my next video. The suggestions I got blew my mind and I have been able to incorporate the ideas into my YouTube videos. The topic Process especially and all the other P’s, have helped me see my mistakes and understand the techniques I must add to improve my videos and know when to add equipment etc. I have also increased my knowledge on how I can manage my business properly with the detailed explanations I have gotten from this course and all the principles shared concerning the 6P’s of business. The community service project and the commitments at the end of each unit has really been helpful. I learnt a lot thanks to this course. I encourage everyone to take this MBS course; even if you are already successful in business; it will help you realize the mistakes you are committing. The commitments, home plan, and community service will help you have a broader knowledge about your business, your self, your community and help you take actions to improve yourself and your community at large.
Haiti. My name is Sylfanie Alexis. I am a young Haitian student living in Haiti. In order to meet my academic needs, I decided to start a small service company to provide online registration for applicants wishing to enter the University and help them prepare for the entrance exams for the Faculties of the country.
My business allowed me to make some money, but I could never save money because I didn’t have control over my business. Then I met a friend who told me about the course and got me interested in participating. Since then I have been able to understand how important my business is and I have been able to save money. Furthermore, I am even able to project my business and am thinking of opening another product business in less than a year. My experience with this program has been fascinating and life changing and I am coming to understand that our autonomy depends on our Home, Business and Community.
South Africa. I’m C. Stino Dassi from Cameroon living in Cape Town, South Africa. When I registered for the program I didn’t know what it would be like until I started the course.
It was so relevant that the impact was imminent as it helped me start my business right away which made it so busy to set it up and run that I took a bit more time to finish the course. I implemented and still do all the 6 elements given and I should say that within a short period of time I have done something incredible with this Course.
Brazil. My name is Rosirene Félix, I am 30 years old and I live in Pires do Rio, Goiás, Brazil. I have always loved dance, ever since I was a little girl. When I was 8 I learned classical ballet for a few months, and from my adolescence to adulthood I have always been involved with dance.
I participated in two dance groups in my city, and we performed in our town and in neighboring towns. But our group was dissolved due to the extra responsibilities that came, and I could no longer dedicate myself to dance. Although I love dance, I had never thought about working with dance, but when this course was introduced to me through a friend, it opened my vision of being able to start working with what I love. This course opened new possibilities in my life, brought me new knowledge that I loved to learn, and today after finishing it I feel capable. Able to improve my talents, follow my dreams and become a successful person. The feeling I have is of gratitude for having had the opportunity to do this course, and gratitude also for everyone that helped me in any way to do it. I am sure that by putting everything I have learned into practice I will have good results, be self-reliant, and be able to be successful. Thank you very much!
DRCongo. My name is Ntumba Ntumba Franck. I am a man whose life has not really been happy. I come from a poor family. My father died when I was almost 5 years old and after his death paying school fees was difficult. Apart from God, the other person I relied on was my mother who fought for her only son to study despite extreme poverty.
In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that I have embraced, I learned to create a business and maintain good relations with others, enabling me to have my baccalaureate and finish my 5 years at university. I have always succeeded with divine help each time, but working with interest on loans does not allow me to move forward without worries and this is a big blockage because I don’t have my own capital. Nevertheless, with the little that I earned sometimes, I managed to solve some problems of my family. This course inspired me to see and do things differently, to use other methods to be more successful. There are some things that I sometimes thought I was doing well, yet I was just sinking into the pit. I learned not to retreat but rather move forward despite the obstacles. I have more than 3 banking partners who have entrusted me with some of their services that I have started doing with them in a win-win partnership. I still dream of becoming a large service and production company…
