  3. Thank you for sharing. This is my first time to read this article.

    The reason why some of us don't start a football business opportunity as you share with us now is because they are not trained to see this opportunity with their minds. It is said Opportunities are not seen with eyes. They are seen with minds. That is where we in Nigeria still miss business opportunity as I shared my blog:: What Is Business Opportunity? Is It Worthy? Why Joining It? with audience to let them understand how important business opportunity is.

    Imagine if you still offer free training to those Nigerians in your organization on football business ideas, I believe that some of them will take this business opportunity and empower our Nigerian economy.
