TELL US ABOUT YOUR LINE OF BUSINESS. HOW DID THE IDEA OF YOUR BUSINESS COME ABOUT?
I own a lifestyle blog where I create content on lifestyle, my faith, women and relationships. (Lifestylebymo.com)
I run ads on my blog and I’m very open to partner with brands that can work with my niche.
I started blogging when I was 16.
I knew God had put a lot in me and I wanted a space online where I could share what I had; bringing solace and enlightenment to people.
WHY DO YOUR CUSTOMERS CHOOSE YOU OVER YOUR COMPETITORS?
An advantage I believe I have is that I am my brand and my brand is me.
So anyone working with me will get 100% realness.
Also I give my all into editing people’s work (books, articles, etc).
HOW DID YOU FUND YOUR BUSINESS AT STARTUP?
When it was time for me pay for my blog hosting and buy a domain name, God used my best friend to finance it.
WHAT HAVE BEEN SOME OF YOUR FAILURES AND WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT FROM THEM?
I have experienced challenges like not knowing my exact niche at first, having really low stats (traffic) on my blog posts and so on. But it has only taught me to be patient with life’s processes and seek knowledge.
You may not have it all figured out yet but you will, eventually.
WHAT SACRIFICES HAVE YOU HAD TO MAKE AS AN ENTREPRENEUR?
I’ve had to sacrifice a huge part of my social life, my reading time (I’m a student), my sleep and my time.
