“In entrepreneurship, challenges are bound to come but the most important thing is that you don’t give up. I’ve faced challenges from combining school with my business especially groundnut making, also at some point business wasn’t as it used to be, there was also the challenge of having so many competitors around. But in the face of all this challenges i persevered, even when it felt like I should give up, I refused to”.
HER SUCCESS STORIES:
The major reason behind my success is God. Also earlier on, I was doing my business on a low key, I had few customers and they were mostly like the only customers I had, I was troubled though but I felt I was trying the best I could.
Later I met a business consultant who told me about branding my business and knowing my business environment, I applied all he told me. I got my brand/business name ‘Minolix Collectibles’ and logo.
I started online marketing and my customer base increased. And currently Minolix Collectibles is blossoming by God’s grace.
THE JOURNEY SO FAR;
The journey so far haven’t been all rosy but by God’s grace and by applying the right principles and strategies my business has grown.
