We had the good fortune of connecting with Bevan Makaka and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Bevan, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Taking risks doesn’t mean succeeding every time, and that’s OK! Taking risks can lead to failure which in turn can help you grow as a person, but only way to truly get the life you want is by taking positive risks and planning a strategy for doing so. Negative risks are typically impulsive and emotionally driven, positive risks are calculated and well orchestrated.There are many benefits of taking career risks that many of us never take advantage of because comfort is such an easy net to get caught up in. The willingness to take risks was and is a important factor in my journey but to be honest on deciding which risk to take its never easy you might have to say no or yes to some opportunities. But in making risks concerning your career networking and good counsel is essential because choosing to find a mentor to help accelerate your career is one way of taking a positive risk. Most risks that i have taken had direct impact on my personal growth because in all instances my risks were associated with learning new things and venturing into business spheres that i was not completely familiar with .But it is very important to note that taking risks is not like completely driving into a blind spot because to maximize your probability to succeed you have to come up with a road map on how you intend to execute which is what has led me to having more wins

What should our readers know about your business?
My life is made up of series of events that I am proud of , as I cherish all moments in my life because they have directly and indirectly made an impact in my life but I am most proud and excited about accomplishing realistic goals and constantly looking for ways to push beyond my last achievement and onto the next one both in my business and philanthropic spheres, last but not least I am most proud about the impact that we are making as Bevan and Megan Foundation in African communities to enhance food and nutrition security and educational provision to low income families . To be honest I got were I am by the grace of God enveloped by consistency and persistency and a good network of individuals that inspired me to dream more and do more. Networking in business is one of the best resources for career development and professional success. A good network can provide investment opportunities ,possibilities for advancement and opportunities for personal improvement, Networking allows you access to opportunities you might not be able to find on your own. I want the World to know that i was here!!!! My dream is to create a world that is inclusive ,one that embraces everyone regardless of skin color or background that is why i am committing my time and resources to fight hunger crisis in Africa

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If a friend is in the area from Africa or anywhere the first place that I would take them is Florida, if they have kids we will go to Orlando because it is one of the world’s most kid-friendly destinations and has a lot family friendly attractions. if they’ve non ill take them to Miami ,Miami is my number one city it is a premier vacation destinations, with beaches, great weather, history, culture, sports, and entertainment, with its lovely soft-sand beaches, Art Deco buildings, and vibrant atmosphere. The next place I will take them is Los Angeles and we will end up in Vegas known as the ultimate playground, the city is colorful and vibrant.
