The most challenging period of my life so far has been 2010.
The challenge was between making a choice and taking a decision ‘CHOICE/DECISION’ I had just finished my advanced professional programs so i was between getting a good job as a salary earner – or chase my own dreams.
But i had to make the decision whether to work as a salary earner to live another man’s planed programed life for me, sounds like i’ll never really live.

As at then I had just started my blog “Naija Gist and Gossips”. There was serious pressure from home on getting a job with all the international certificate I’d basked. It was really not easy, especially when you’re from an average family and you needed to just leverage on any opportunities. Trust me it was really challenging. Making a concrete decision yourself was overwhelming.

Overcoming the challenges wasn’t easy, i was quick and SENSITIVE ENOUGH TO REALIZE THE ENVIRONMENT AND CONDITION I FOUND MYSELF at that time. I had to GARNER STRENGTH from where I found myself. Especially when I knew I had no choice than to make money, so I can vindicate my decisions of not getting a job. Still, I needed substantial funds to stabilise my media company and my blog. I realised that then I started PUSHING the blog till over 5million views, I tried monetisation and google accepted my account for Adsense, and little things started coming in to sustain the platform. And one day, I got my first advert placement from a Spar company in Lagos – and #mystory changed fromtheroot9ja.

For your dreams and goals, believe challenges and hard times is the exams to your success.
