Nancy Aketch is the founder and chief executive officer of Taraji Insurance Agency
“I was excited about being my own boss when I quit formal employment and founded my own insurance company. But then again, I felt that I had a lot of time in my hands. I wanted to do more since I no longer had the 9 to 5 employment routine. I sought for other money-making opportunities that would set me on the path to entrepreneurship success and opened three more start-ups simultaneously. This proved to be a huge mistake at many different levels. I stretched myself too thin. I no longer had time for my family. Juggling four businesses wasn’t easy.
