Below are six (6) attitudes to avoid if you want to be successful in Life.
Twenty-one students from the Human Development Institute (HDI) in Port Moresby graduated last Friday.
Among them was Elizabeth Wippon and her daughters. She was the top student being able to make K6,000 in a week. That was more than the target of K1,000 set and 10 students were able to make K1,000.
HDI founder Dr Samuel Tam commonly known as ‘Papa Sam’ by many of the grassroots people in Papua New Guinea revealed that the students also referred to as praxis at HDI were thought how to start with K10 to make K1000 in a week.

My parents were poor. To make matters worse, my father gambled what little money he earned from working at a nearby tea plantation. Sometimes he won; many times he lost.
I was selected to go to Grade 7 at Hagen High School in 1978. The fee was K150 for boarding and K75 for day students. My parents couldn't afford K150, so I became a day student. Even then I nearly didn't make it because they were short of K20.
The Lord used the old man in this picture to save my life (we call him Wasman because in his young days he always got up early in the morning with the birds and awakened everyone in the village.)
The trend in which Business Opportunities in Papua New Guinea is prevailing is that all of the businesses from small scale to big companies are now being taken over by foreigners. Does that mean we sit back and relax? We here at PNG Education News Center try to educate Papua New Guineans of the ways they can make a living by doing business and become business men and women and flourish.
Lets take back our businesses
Below are few areas we think, anyone can make a move to start up a business and be successful.
1. Start from Scratch (Small things)
Big things start from small things. Start sell betelnuts, smoke and PKs, lollies. Accumulate the little money. Let it will grow. Expand it, sell live children...etc.
2. Make Gardens and sell your products
Fresh garden goods a king. They sell out quickly. Accumulate the little money you get. Continue to make garden. Invest in growing more vegetables. Hire more people to help you make gardens. The more vegetables you sell, the more you get.
3. Make Carvings
The increase in tourism in PNG means you can get good amount of money by carvings, PNG bilums, paintings etc.
4. Lend Money
If you live in towns and cities and you do not have land, start lending money. You can start from as small as K100. Lend money on small interest.
5. Property Marketing
If you already have cars, taxis, rental house, rent stores. Please do not tell foreigners to use your properties for them to make money. Rather you ask them to lend their money to you so that your run the business yourselves and repay theirs.
