Wow, great. How long have you been an entrepreneur?
I have been an entrepreneur since 2013 back then in school. My pocket money was not enough and I wanted more. So I met a guy in school and he assisted me in my entrepreneurship journey. I built my customer system and that was it.
Great. What inspired you to be an entrepreneur?
Well, I would say my mum inspired me to be an entrepreneur. I grew up to know her as an entrepreneur. She is a government worker. She was also into other businesses and this inspired me to start my phone and gadget business. My friends too helped me. I do tell people, your friends determines your level of growth.

In tech and entrepreneurship, what has worked for me is MVP-Minimum valued product. Start small and kick off with a good brand. Also, I do ask myself what is the best thing that can happen if I go ahead and what is the worst thing that can happen if I don’t go ahead. I weigh my options and I tackle the problem.
