Okay.!! Today, I have an awesome person in the house who is also in my ecosystem. He does amazing stuffs and I am glad to have him here. Lets meet him.
Welcome to honournaija_blog, can we meet you?
I’m Collins Philip. I hail from Edo State, Nigeria. Let’s say I’m quite a few things, a content writer, copywriter, and the founder of Profit Hackers – a blog I run to help youths and young entrepreneurs just like myself.
Great. What inspired you to start this amazing business?
Well, I’ve always loved writing. Right from secondary school, I loved essay writing and I still do. When I graduated from school, I began to get more social online. That was when I got initiated in this whole digital skills of a thing and then I decided to give it a shot. I discovered I could build a source of income from writing and at that moment, I realized it was a match made in Heaven. Meanwhile, Profit Hackers is a blog that was built to help young Nigerians build a stable source of income online. We help these young people like myself by bringing them one step closer to financial freedom. Giving them all the information they need and providing instructional materials to help in the learning process.
When did you start and for how long?
I started last year, and I can say I’ve improved a lot. I’m not where I want to be yet but I’m better than I used to be. It’s a gradual process and I should enjoy it. Profit Hackers is just a month old and we’re making good progress already.
What has been the challenges so far as an entrepreneur?
Arrgh! So many things, the most common one was dealing with too much information. Information paralysis is a nasty thing that you wouldn’t want to deal with. Another challenge I faced especially as a new comer to the writing space was figuring out how to source for funds, It’s one thing to desire to join a coaching program. It’s another thing to be financially capable to register for said program.
Can you say your customers has derived maximum satisfaction thus far?
Of course, my clients satisfaction has always been my top priority. And I’m always honest with what I can deliver. Its integrity over money because my reputation is worth for than anything.
Where do you see your business in the next 10years and what steps do you intend to take towards that vision?
I hope to build my writing agency someday and at the same time make a global impact on young people all over Nigeria. As for Profit Hackers, it’s better if I keep the plans in the dark for now but one thing is certain, we’re taking Nigeria by storm. Also, I’m not looking too far ahead because it’s okay not to have everything figured out. Things might change. A lot of things can happen in 10 years. I just set short-term goals and work towards achieving them.
What is/are your advice to young ones that would want to go into your kind of business?
Please in everything you do be consistent. New start-ups always have it hard to find active followers online. Especially if you’re not an influencer. Just keep doing your thing, people are watching The more you push yourself out there and connect with the right people, the more you progress in your entrepreneurship journey. Slow progress is still progress Although, it’s not always visible but small measurable steps go a long way. And remember, if you keep giving yourself room for excuses. Procrastination and laziness are bound to take over. Start implementing that idea that came from “above”. And one more thing: Find and learn that skill under a good mentor.
