In an exclusive comment to Briefly News, a small-time business owner, Javith Pathan, says:

"As someone who owned multiple small businesses, investing all your money is a big risk, but you cannot make money without investing like this young businesswoman. You may work long hours as a small business owner. As someone solely responsible for managing and operating a business, you likely have long work days, but the hard work will eventually pay off."
