What do you love about working for yourself?
I enjoy working for myself because it gives me the freedom to impact the world (especially Africa) with my (God Given) creativity and intelligence.
What’s the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur?
I think the hardest thing is being responsible for a lot of things, the business, the people working with me and the customers we are servicing. Also as an entrepreneur you don’t have many friends and you are single most times (smile).
What do you wish you knew before you started your business?
I wish I knew it won’t be easy at first I would have been more prepared. Time management also is a key thing I wish I knew before now.
Why do you do what you do? Where did the idea come from?
Like I said before I love to impact my world by creating solutions born out of creativity and deep research.
Concerning the ideas, they come whenever I pray and when I go on a long holiday trip.
How different is what you do now from what you wanted to do as a child?
Not really different, I wanted to be a computer engineer and a Business man, although my parent wanted me to be a Doctor but I studied Geology (All thanks to JAMB). Now am a Business man in the IT industry.
How long have you been working out of CapitalSquare? What has the experience been like? Would you recommend it?
I have been here since early February and my experience has been wonderful, it’s a nice and conducive environment with lots of inspiration and collaboration with other business owners.
If you could share a desk with any two people in the world, who would they be? Why?
Two people in capital square? Or just any two people?
Outside capital square, I will love to share my desk with Dangote and My favorite cousin. Dangote will explain to me daily how he made his billions (lol), plus his mistakes. Also My cousin inspires me every time we discuss and he’s so full of energy and ideas.
Within capital square, I really don’t know who to choose because am just getting to know everyone here because I love to work alone without distractions.
If you could be any animal, what would you be?
Lion of course, He’s the king of the Jungle as I will love to rule my industry very soon.
