Where did the inspiration to start a brand come from?
I have always been particular about branding because it is very essential to business growth, I think my inspiration first came from my project colleague then “Olugbenga Jessica” who saw how good I was with the media but then I didn’t have the luxury of time because I was doing a 5/7 job, but thank God for the pandemic (lol) when it came it gave me the opportunity to start and foster all of my brands
Did you encounter failure at first? How did you cope and what lessons did you learn from the experience?
of course yes! I encountered several failures, ups and downs almost got depressed; but then NO PAIN NO GAIN. Each failure came with a lesson and I’m pretty good at learning slowly but surely. Well I had to learn from my previous mistakes and stayed focused.
How many hours do you dedicate to your business daily?
If you know me, you’ll know I am addicted to my phone. So let’s say I dedicate about 18hours to my business no exaggerations. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night to make sure jobs are completely and effectively done.
How do the social, economic, environmental, technological, legal and political environments impact your business?
Oh well; these factors impacted a lot, some negatively some positively but in life those factors work hand in hand and as such I had to find a balance to be able to cope with them
What’s Your Approach To Marketing?
My approach to marketing is knowing the right thing to do at the right time. A lot of digital marketers or brand owners do not know this. Personally I stay afloat completely with creativity and collaborations. So collaboration is my approach
What aspect of your business brings you the most fulfilment?
My customers and clients satisfaction gives me the most fulfillment. It is agreed that human want is insatiable but I try my best to deliver top notch services and when my clients come back with awesome reviews I’m elated and satisfied.
