Economic Empowerment Seminar

By: George Wachiuri (Optiven CEO)

Here's a summary of the sermon

Wealth creation is at the heart of successful business development. However, there are many different mindsets and approaches that can be helpful in achieving this goal. One of the most important is empowerment, which gives people a sense of control over their own destiny. When they feel empowered, they are more likely to take action and start building wealth.

In this seminar, George Wachiuri (Optiven CEO) discusses the concept of empowerment and how it relates to business development. He also explores ways to empower people and organizations through education, mentorship, and other means.

The ultimate goal is to enable people to build wealth in a way that works best for them. By empowering individuals as well as companies, we can create a more prosperous world together.
