Anita Erskine, a corporate icon in Ghana who has built great networks as a professional in the media space particularly, has raised eyebrows after narrating some of her struggles.
According to Anita, her networks just dwindled all-of-a-sudden when she decided to start her business and needed cash to sustain the startup.
When I decided to start my business, my network dwindled fast! I was coming from mainstream radio and tv - huge clout, mega relevance, extraordinary presence. In my first year as an Entrepreneur, I hit a major snag. I needed cash to make a vital project happen. I couldn’t raise it," she recounts.
