Like many of you I can now look forward to a salary at the end of the month!! Yes, Inteco can now afford me. (Insert standing ovation here). Excitement cannot even begin to describe what I feel. I am no longer a starving entrepreneur.
You may be curious to know just how much my salary is. Well. It is 500. No, I did not miss a zero or two. I am no longer a starving entrepreneur but an under paid one. Why am I so excited when the amount is so little? It is the symbolism of it all. Inteco is paying 80% of its expenses now. I am not contributing money to the day to day expenses anymore. There are a few current and upcoming expenses that Inteco will still need a supporting hand BUT, we are growing. I think that is why I am so elated. There is evident growth. We started with making 100 shillings in 10 days. Then we were able to buy our own supplies and now we are able to pay me.
I had nothing. Now I have 500 to look forward to. Plus my salary increases every month by 10%. Who’s job offers that?
Until next time.
