“A coach is someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear, who has you see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you always knew you could be.” – Tom Landry
There’s a natural drive within us as humans to grow, improve and move forward with clarity and conviction. It has driven us to the great heights of industrial, technological and medical advancements that we see around us today. Although this powerful underlying desire could be described as “the life force of growth”, it alone is not enough for the majority of people to find their own version of success.
Stats collected by the US Bureau of Labour Statistics and other sources paint a bleak picture for entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMEs).
For any such business founded in a given year, 20% will fail before the end of the first year, 30% will fail in the second, 50% in year five, and about 70% will have failed by the end of year 10. Considering 82% of the capital used to fund SMEs comes from the pockets of the entrepreneur and their family and friends, it can be a very costly endeavour.
Measuring contentment or fulfilment for each individual is a much more difficult task. I would confidently declare it to be an impossible one, considering the complexity and diversity of human neurology, biology and experience. It’s difficult to pinpoint what causes an individual to feel content and fulfilled in life. It is not, however, impossible for each individual to find happiness and contentment given the right knowledge and guidance.
, we are always keeping an eye out for companies that can really make a difference in people’s lives. Following a recent conversation with founder and CEO of Anvia Holdings Inc. ($ANVV) Ali Kasa
, it became very clear to us that Anvia is one such company. Anvia is a global technology corporation whose mission it is to make personal and professional growth
accessible to all.
Anvia first established itself in building out the first complete ecosystem for the construction industry. The integrated platform provides a full suite of options for individuals looking to up skill or to gain the qualifications needed for employment in construction. It also provides employer solutions, allowing them to get the most qualified graduates to benefit their workplace.
What really excites us however is the new direction the Anvia team is taking.
Last week, Anvia announced
that it has acquired Egnitus Inc.
and its subsidiaries trading under the brand Egnatium
. Egnatium allows Anvia to use the framework that they have developed and deployed so well in the construction industry, but on a much broader scale.
