From selling charcoal to street hawking: The untold story of McBrown



According to her narration, it was not easy for her when she started life so she resorted to selling charcoal and chewing sticks to generate revenue for her upkeep.

She also noted that it did not end there as she also sold rice and clothes at some point in time to survive during her difficult moments in life.

In a video shared by Express GH TV on their YouTube channel and sighted by GhanaWeb, Nana Ama McBrown used her life as an example to admonish the youth to keep working hard and their breakthrough will surely come to pass.

“Always I want to take a cue from my life to the youth because I have been there before. I want the youth to listen to this, there is something that you may want immediately but you won’t get it today. When I started life, I did a lot of things to survive. Some of the work I did was selling charcoal, and chewing sticks. The rice that in those days children would buy to school, I have sold it before. I also sold clothes on market days and sometimes went to Ivory Coast to sell,” she recounted.

McBrown further advised, “Maybe you are looking at my life today and want to be like me or someone who has made it in life, if you don’t use the right channel it will not end well. So don’t rush to get certain things now but keep working, when the time is ripe, you will enjoy it. Don’t compare yourself to those who have already made it in life.”

Nana Ama McBrown’s story serves as an admonishment to the youth especially those who are eager to gain riches within the shortest possible time.
