He said if they don't re-strategise and begin to use their "brains" instead of their physical strength to work, they may break down with sickness, in the long run.

"We think we are looking for money, but we don't do that relying solely on our body, we use our brains and knowledge as well". he advised.

The Business man, in a trending video sighted by YEN.com.gh on TikTok, further said any Ghanaian abroad who earns US$2000 per month is part of the poorest in the foreign country they have relocated to.

"Life is not all about money, there is fullfilment in life, there is health. So those of you who have moved and doing factory works or some other menial job and because you earn $2000 , you are poor, because in that country if you earn $2000 a month, you are not rich, you are actually poor,” she said
