Wow, today is the grand finale of entrepreneurs spotlight 3.0. We rounded up with an amazing person in the house, his works are quite efficient and exciting. Lets get to meet him.
Welcome to honournaija_blog, can we meet you?
I’m Paul Godson by name, a graduate of Kogi State University, B.A in Agriculture specifically, Soil and Environmental Management. I’m a native of Kogi State and by desire, an entrepreneur. I’m a digital marketing expert who specializes in e-Commerce.
By that, I import and export products while capitalizing on the digital space to create awareness for those products and to make good sales. I run a medium enterprise called Opago Ventures, which is a digital marketing agency and has gained presence in four African countries.
Super great. What inspired you to start this amazing business?
The drive to create a world where buyers could easily gain access to a marketplace for anything they want. Secondly, the decision to be my own boss!
I love your decision sir. When did you start and for how long?
The journey started at exactly 6 years ago, that is, 2016.
That is great. What has been the challenges so far as an entrepreneur?
Yeah, the journey isn’t as easy as people think but, it still remains the best decision I’ve taken so far. Challenges could come in form of inadequate capital to cover more catchment areas especially, whenever there is a decision to expand. Also, we’ve been plagued with unskilled workforce over the years but, we’ve brought everything to a halt with the measures recently put in place.
Interesting. Can you say your customers has derived maximum satisfaction thus far?
Yes, for sure. In fact, Customers’ satisfaction is our topmost priority. Our services are unique and we have a strong concierge readily available for every issue our customers are faced with.
Excellent. Where do you see your business in the next 10years and what steps do you intend to take towards that vision?
In 10yrs from now, we should have extended far beyond the chores of Africa. Part of the steps is an active workshop training that could prepare me for what is ahead.
What is/are your advice to young ones that would want to go into your kind of business?
Resilience and doggedness. You need resilience to build a profitable business since there is no overnight success. You also need to be doggedmeticulous enough, to keep the business running.
