Miss Rita Agyapong who is a young entrepreneur, a teacher and the author of a popular book titled "Recipe for Cooking" premised her call on the worrying reality that most youth are used to the usual trend of seeking employment avenues at other people's businesses to make a living.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Ghanadistricts.com at her business center at Fumesua in the Ashanti Region, she underscored the foregoing as a great hindrance since it restrains most of them (youth) from utilizing their talents to create their own business empire as a result.
According to her, there are a higher number of Ghanaians who are so much endowed with vocational skills plus other talents which if utilized will earn them great fortunes but are refusing to utilize their talents and skill because of laziness and pride.
"Many of our youth today has one way or another have acquire some knowledge in the vocational and technical training which could yield many results of jobs creation if put in practice but we have locked all the knowledge in a wed-rope dumped under our beds an sleeping our thinking that will not help us", Miss Rita Agyepong stated.
She then questioned: "Why should you be surviving on the vision of somebody when you have what it takes to start something of your own to make a living".
