The Chairperson of United Africa Group, Martha Namundjebo-Tilahun spoke to women on how to become the Chief Executive Officer’s of their careers and move beyond dreaming their passion and start living it, during the Economist Businesswomen Club Breakfast held last week at the Hilton Hotel, where she was the guest speaker.
Namundjebo-Tilahun said that business as well as life is about taking calculated risks and no matter how much one analysis possible risks and tries to establish ways of mitigating them, some factors are beyond one’s control.
“I have experienced devastating blows in my life which have resulted in loss of investments amounting to millions of dollars, I have had people that I trusted disappoint me greatly, I have gone through negative publicity and negative talk but the more this happened the more it fuelled me to pursue my passion,” said Namundjebo-Tilahun.

“Success is not spontaneous but it is a result of planning, careful execution and clear focus on the goal, but many people think that business succeeds by luck or that one needs the government or somebody else to back you in order to succeed, but I have never seen an easy or effortless success in business and in life, it takes planning, hard work and focus,” she added.
She said that dreaming is good but dreaming without vision, supported by a good plan to realise that dream, the dream will remain nothing but a dream.
The  Economist Businesswomen Club Breakfast was sponsored by Telecom Namibia and Business Partners International.
