A man has taken to social media to share how he became an entrepreneur. Boet Joy Khulie shared his inspiring story on the #ImStaying Facebook page on Saturday.

He revealed he struggled to get a job for two years after graduating from varsity. The sad reality is that many suffer the same fate but Khulie decided not to sit and wait for an opportunity to land in his lap.

Instead he founded his own company and it has been going ever since.

His post read:

"Two years down the line after graduating and no luck of getting any job. I then decided to open a small restaurant that sell chips and kota. It started small and it's getting bigger and better every day. If you can't get employed, then employ yourself."
