Youth man’s entrepreneurial bicycle plan

While the former Mayor’s battle as a businesswoman and entrepreneur is well documented, another local businessman is trying to get the word out on his endeavors. A local youth  man is tired of being unemployed and he is starting a courier service called Cornie Courier Service and he hopes you would send some business his way.

“When I first start dis business yah dah when I find out I used to give out application wid my high school diploma and my sixth form and first of all I used to get lone ansa, we noh have no vacancy at dis moment, we wah get back to you as soon as possible, we wah keep your application on file. So I went into this business weh I establish from New York when I went abroad with my father. I went to the South Community Center in New York and this is when they give me wah trade to do for myself and for business people, house people, small and large people. So I open dis business in Belize and also di pastry job. I have this service for the past four years from 2008 and I talk t Mr. Barrow and Mr. Barrow said that he will try to see if he can give me more clients. All I’m asking for is a basic salary of one-fifty for the week, and basic salary two weeks is three hundred and for the month is six hundred.”

“I drop off mail, I pay banking, utility bills, pick up of delivery, pick up of items, pick up of breakfast and lunch and more many delivery tasks. But for the people dem all I’m asking is for a contract is for a small contract. All I’m asking to the public people is to support me in my courier service. Right now I’m really down, I’m waiting on calls and they do not give me a call. Right now it’s very poor because there’s lot ah bad minded people in the different business houses. They take off my name off my flyers that I give bout, I have a book when I give bout these flyers to different business houses. So personally, what I’m saying, you’re asking me how my life; my life is very slow, very hectic, very struggling. I’m holding my leadership, taking care of my daughter, taking care of my mom, my wife and myself in the streets and my friends dem.”

    Bravo for this industrious young fellow! It’s a great example for others to follow, not necessarily in the courier business, but in working hard with what you have to make a legal living.

    Maybe we’re seeing the beginning of the next DHL!

    Maybe we’re seeing the beginning of the next DHL! This guy deserves our business, I think.

    P.S. Be careful with the traffic, and please wear a helmet! It’s a jungle on the streets of the city.
