Managing Director of EDC Investments Ltd, Paul Kofi Mante, has explained that the journey to financial independence is not a sprint but a marathon.

He attributes the rise in the ‘get rich’ mentality amongst the youth to the unrealistic notion that the road to financial independence is a 100m sprint.

“We don’t acquire money all at once but in bits. The journey to financial independence is not a sprint but a marathon. It is not a day event, but in bits, timing and consistency, one can make money. We need our young ones to understand that making money is not an event but a painstaking process.

“We want people to understand that with discipline, we can achieve and get the money we desire,” he said at the launch of the financial literary segment on Happy FM dubbed ‘Wo Sikasem’ on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ current affairs show.

According to Mr Mante, life is not an event but a journey with many learning experiences; he, therefore, urged Ghanaians, especially the youth, to set financial goals for themselves if they want to make ‘clean’ money.

“EDC and Happy FM are collaborating in teaching and promoting the culture of investment through this radio broadcast. We want to explain the principles of making money to the Ghanaian populace and in the process help many people to attain financial independence.”

Money is considered a major life course regardless of one’s profession, or social status and this campaign seek to build capacity and knowledge of money.

As multiple income streams are a necessity and not a luxury, all listeners are entreated to tune in daily for these money-making nuggets from EDC investments.
