What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take–but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it?
In my mind the biggest risk I took was when I enrolled in college. It was a risk for me, I was young I had no idea who will pay my tuition fees. My father passed away, my mother had no income. She was a housewife, my eldest brother spent all of Dad’s money in a business he had no clue about.
Where I come from,there is no such thing as a student loan. If I wanted to study my mother would have to pay for my books and tuition fees.It was not possible for her, the money dad left was wasted by my eldest brother.
Fortunately I had two older brothers who encouraged me to register in the local college and they agreed to take care of my educational expenses, both were working and getting a decent salary. They also took care of the household expenses which included fees for my younger siblings.
I’m not keen on taking any other kind of risks.

When I decided to start blogging , I thought the best way to remember my father is to name it, “Sabethville.” My Dad’s name was “Abdus Sabeth.”
He worked hard to raise us, he loved us and was always interested to give us a good education.
He once told my mother, the best way to educate a child is by registering them in a school which gives quality education to the kids. It’s like a building he said the better the foundation, the better it will be for it to withstand the test of time.
We were given the opportunity to study in a school where they had dedicated teachers who cared about our education, even though my father had to pay ten times more in tuition fees compared to the other schools, it did not bother him. I think we the siblings did okay.
