What do you love about working for yourself?
I can put my unique personality, speed, accuracy, and even my emotions into my works without been questioned by a higher or lower authority
What’s the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur?
Nothing is hard... I think it is too easy (although I live in a society were making ends meet is a major priority and professionalism/perfectionist principles is usually not considered in making decisions) I am finding it interestingly difficult to adjust to the realities of my environment.
What do you wish you knew before you started your business?
I wish I knew how to market myself better I also wish I knew how to print original naira notes in my backyard.
Why do you do what you do? Where did the idea come from?
I do what I do because I believe I have solutions to all the problems in the world, All the ideas come from the numerous problems around me
How different is what you do now from what you wanted to do as a child?
I can't remember what I wanted to do as a child. Maybe I wanted to teach mathematics & physics in the morning and play basketball in the evening also doing some manufacturing on the side (I never wanted to be a doctor because I felt all my mates would already be doctors by the time we grew up)
How long have you been working out of CapitalSquare? What has the experience been like? Would you recommend it?
5 months in CapitalSquare. The experience is actually good, it's just that i don't get to work till midnight. I would recommend CapitalSquare for people like me
If you could share a desk with two people in the world, who would they be? Why?
I would share my desk with any average/normal child between the age of 5-12 years because they are probably more creative, playful, dirty, noisy, eager to learn, adventurous, spontaneous and probably more romantic than me.
If you could be any animal, what would you be?
