In life they say a right person he/she who make things happen. These categories of people are those with independent minds, workaholics and those who like what they do. They have self-esteem and would do extra-ordinary things in a very common way. “It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. It doesn’t matter how many times you almost get it right. No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because all that matters in business is that you get it right once. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are.” Says Mark Cuban, Chairman of AXS TV, Owner of Landmark Theaters.
Dignity, wise men have opined does not consist in possessing honours but in deserving them. This is to say that if you are by any stroke of historical accident, bestowed with honours that are unjustifiable; it makes no sense; for it is equivalent to putting a golden ring on the nose of a pig.
In a nutshell, Ndi Julius Yunwe aka Grand Julio is an exemplary young business man based in Bamenda. His peers say he is a business man par excellence not because he is a successful motor spare part trader but because he genuinely deserves such dignity and honour for being an exemplary young man in business. He has found success in creating his own opportunities. In doing so, he has grown from a small shop owner to a bona fide business mogul.
He is an able Abbot fit to be a symbol of whosoever on this planet called earth without any complex due to his high sense of contractual obligation and dedication in business. This is so because this young man has been able to make buying and selling of motor spare parts an enviable business.
Meet Grand Julio in his shop the Bamenda Old Treasury Street for business chat and you will understand that you have met a genius. He has such a character that is rare to see young men reasons why he is succeeding. Commentators have often likened his business skill to that of Donald Trump. Being elite of Mbum land Julius knows without being told that the price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination to win or lose, as well as applying the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
As a business man who has trained scores of young men, Grand Julio is the emblem of the new generation as all hopes are usually in him as he would make sure that he scrutinizes every little thing. As a young man, he has succeeded where many failed woefully, given that he is also a football promoter. However that is not our interest for now. Our interest is that he is not a young man to pigeon-hole with when it comes to respecting business contracts, time and quality services.
Ndi Julius is a multi-talented young business man. He is like Farfre in The Mayor of Casterbrigde given that every little thing he touches prospers. This apparently explains why many youths admire him and calls him, “The Role Model” because he advises his peers and even elders in business edeavours.
Because of his judiciousness, unassuming nature, God fearing and straight forwardness, Julius is often described as somebody who loves his profession to an extent that he drinks business, eats business and dreams business.
But being a workaholic by nature Julius knocked on doors and established relationships with young man and women in the Diaspora who are willing to hire cars, buy new ones for their families etc. He was again trusted from clienteles all over Cameroon that you would hardly find him idling. He is trying to develop an entrepreneurial mind frame for kids, so they will consider starting successful for-profit businesses that are the key to the continued growth of Cameroon.
