Nigerian Entrepreneur? Good. You’re in the Right Place to Learn How to Become More Successful Than Ever!
Even if you’ve been successful in business for years, times are changing. Fast. If you don’t learn how to do business ‘the new way’, then you’re going to be left behind. I should know, I felt this way myself back in 2015, since then I’ve totally changed the way I do business.
This is my personal blog, a melting pot of information to get you kitted-out with all the tools, tips and tactics you need to be able to start, run, support and grow a business in the 21st century.
Hundreds of posts, plenty of interviews with successful Nigerian entrepreneurs and tons of great content mean you’ll be ready to take on the world with a ‘new business’ mentality faster than you ever imagined!
I went to college knowing exactly what I wanted to be, an economist structuring business plans and finding ways to make business profitable. I migrated to Jamaica in 2000 and established myself as an artist. I spent 8 years in Jamaica barely getting by.
Under a visitors visa I was able to migrate to the USA. I spent a lot of time working for others to find the American dream. After working for a few years barely making minimum wage I realize there has to be more to life than what I was getting. That’s when I decided to start a blog, knowing absolutely nothing I started doing some research on building a business through blogging.
With a lots of mistakes, trials, and misdirection I can finally say I have found my dream. I currently run multiple business online and have found great success in most of them.
The “Great Nigerian” Moment
Everything changed for me at the end of 2014, when I suffered a horrific burnout. I was living like most entrepreneurs, working 14-hour days, six days a week, spending very little time with my family and working ‘in’ my business, instead of ‘on’ it way too much. Sure, I loved my business and the focus of building it, but I was tired. In every possible way.
Going into 2015, I put a 1-year goal in place – to become a podcaster. I started a blog to chart the journey. By late November 2015, I achieved the goal. Not only that, but I launched another business in the middle of that year, Great Nigerian, as a result of simply listening to my online audience.
I now work an average of 6-hours a day, my workweek no longer includes Friday and I get to spend lots of time with my wife and four awesome children.
More and more private consultation clients came on board and I began getting invitations to speak at events more frequently.
It was obvious that the world was changing the way they engaged. Not just in business. In every way.
I completely shifted my attitude (something that’s required!) and started reading like a madman. I read every ‘new’ business book I could get my hands on. Then I searched out successful Nigerian entrepreneurs and interview them for my podcast!
Focusing on building my businesses around my personal brand is the best decision I’ve ever made as an entrepreneur.
It will be the same for you, too. Wait and see!

Creating new business is a passion I have always had. During my free times I focus on developing businesses around my other passions.

Nigerian Food Network
Cooking is one of my passions so I created the Nigerian Food Network to showcase Nigerian recipes.
