What a moment 👏👏👏👏. Business however slow this year has been tremendously great. From my personal brand to building businesses, reading this article made me tear up cos that little girl with nothing but an idea, she couldn’t even call it “dreams” then, it was laughable. She’s here, topping yahoo finance list of Entrepreneurs to follow. Welldone T, it has been tough carving a niche, it’s tough building your table from scratch, with no hand outs, heavy scrutiny, no special invites,…. it’s almost like people are betting on you to fail.
My journey has taught me grace, it has taught me that it might not make sense to the world but God is using it all to shatter barriers. This is to every young girl out there who just wants a better tomorrow, I hope this inspires you, we are only 2 females on this list and I am so humbled to be one of them, my businesses are still growing, my brand is still expanding and it still gets pretty tough but this right here has encouraged me to dream more. God has been the only way I’ve made it this far. From Ondo state, idanre LGA to be precise, to the world 🌎 🥂👏🍾💥😎.
