It is everyone’s dream to work from home, to be your own boss no matter the atmosphere or time-zone you are from. But how do you do that in Papua New Guinea? A third world country, with very limited opportunities for anybody who is nobody? In my opinion honestly, there are a lot of contributing factors that depend on your upbringing, your family, your financial status, parents support maybe even an inheritance. Being completely honest I didn’t have most of these things. proficienteC, the start-up that I am co-founder to didn’t eventuate from my financial status nor my parents influence on society or even an inheritance.

I was always a dreamer, my co-founder might even say I still am. But honestly, I don’t mind that label at all. Why? Because I may be a dreamer but I am also someone that has had their dreams come true. When I was younger I’d always admired successful people, people who displayed their material wealth, people who could spend K100 in a day (at the time k100 was an amount of money I couldn’t spend in one day). I wanted to have money and wealth without having to be stuck slaving in an 8 to 5 job.

It was through this drive to be successful that doors opened and opportunities arose. I’m not nearly as successful as I want to be, I don’t have a million Kina and my dreams to be rich and successful haven’t come true yet. But I know I’m on the right path, I know the more I put in the effort the more doors will open and opportunities will arise.
