Entrepreneurs are problem hunters. Walking around with a sniffer dog, looking for problems they can solve

By Aubrey Mavhuli

Who wants to earn money?

I have never been a sensational writer before, but this calls for a bit of it. There is an open secret many people seem to miss quite often.

“You got to learn before you earn”, somebody said, not me. I do concur. The question is what should you learn. Learn all you can and apply all you can to earn all you can.

This is why our elders said: “Experience is the best teacher”, which I partly disagree with though.

Experience can’t be the best teacher. Not for everything. But it still qualifies for a good teacher though. The best I leave it for one and only true master teacher: Jesus the King of Glory. I am not preaching yet so don’t shout “Amen” yet.

If you wanna be a doctor you must study medicine right! If you wanna be a lawyer you study law right? What if you want to earn money what should you study? You see right there I sense the confusion. I know and I am nowhere near a prophet. I am a writer of words.

Study money. Should I study accounts or finance or economics someone asked me the other day? I said ‘no’ though it would assist you a whole lot if you could study the nature of money.

Money is just a form of exchange. But an exchange for what! For value. And what does value look like?” someone else asked?

“Value looks like problems solved,” I responded.

If you could look for enough problems that really matter to people, the people whose problems really matter a lot to them will have a budget for the solution.

Entrepreneurs therefore are problem hunters. Walking around with a sniffer dog for problems they can solve. Don’t worry about problems you can’t solve there is a generous amount of problems in the world. But find those that you can solve, those that you can learn to solve, and can learn to earn your portion.

So in closing of my thoughts for the day. If you want to earn, learn. Learn what? Learn problem-solving.

Don’t run away from problems you will always come second, problems in front and winning.


Writing and earning at the same time


Would you want to learn and write like me and earn in the process?

I have partnered with this newspaper Sunday Express and BNC International to teach our readers and a selected few writers who have that book within them, which they never published.

It took me about 100 days to publish this book: Success is Do it Yourself. And I would be lying if I do not disclose of the dozens of obstacles to the writing of the book

Now I speak as someone who knows the ropes, since I have written and published two books – one year after the other. I will show you all the mistakes that one may encounter, and how to avoid them.

The first book took me a year to get it to print. The second was 90 days from scratch to print. What made the difference between the first and second was that I had learnt the path to my story and my craft.

So here is my offer to those writers hidden anywhere in the world.

Book for the two-hour Book Writing online master class on the 30th of April 2021 for a generous fee of R350 only. Ordinarily writers are taught information gathering and structured writing in classes that last 12 months or more. And to get a great expert writer can cost up to R10 000 for such expertise.

This course is surely able to set you up for success – from day one to day 100 – and you will be a published author.

I started writing when I was 13, but got my first book published at 41. It was 28 years of wandering in the desert of book publishing. Will that be your portion? Let that not be.
