Kaiser Media is one of Ghana’s leading startup social media marketing agencies and the owner also served as the financial secretary of the GIJ-SRC Weekend School.

Kaiser reveals that very little can be done if one lacks hope and confidence. In his opinion, achievement is always possible if one has faith and optimism.

For that reason, he went on, even though he knew the ‘Why’, he was clueless about the ‘How’, and therefore kept pressing on to be the best.

Per a report by primenewsghana.com, Kaiser adds that it takes sweat, hardwork, determination and other positive attributes to achieve an objective.

Starting his academic journey in 2015, he involved himself in several odd jobs just to survive.

Kaiser disclosed that he sold coconuts on a truck, worked in casinos as a bartender, cleaned and washed plates in hotels and waited in restaurants in order to earn an income.
