EM: HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?
Success can be defined in various ways, as it is subjective and varies from person to person but personally, success is Achievement of Goals, impact, Fulfillment and Happiness. Ultimately, success is a deeply personal and subjective concept. It is important to define success in a way that resonates with your aspirations, values, and circumstances. It’s worth noting that success is not a destination but rather a journey, and it can evolve and change over time as your aspirations and perspectives shift.
EM: IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO START YOUR CAREER OVER AGAIN, WHAT WOULD YOU DO DIFFERENTLY?
I want to say nothing because there’s nothing really I’d change but looking deeper I think SEEKING MENTORSHIP. If I’m starting over I’d seek mentorship on PERSONAL BRANDING from someone who can provide guidelines, limit my challenges and accelerate my growth.
EM- EVERY BUSINESS-MINDED SUCCESSFUL PERSON HAS A STORY, WHAT CHALLENGES DID YOU FACE?
Balancing work life. At first, it was a struggle balancing it with school then I moved on the balancing it with work and now I’m trying to balance it with launching a business and marriage.

EM- YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION TO MANY, WHO/WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
My yesterday self inspires me.
EM- IF YOU WERE TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT YOURSELF WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?
Mmm, I’ve actually never thought about that but I’ll most likely be “THE GIRL ON THE TORTOISE PATH: A tale of slow growth and steady progress”. More options would be;
“Journey of a late bloomer.”
“Patience in Progress: Navigating the Path of Slow Growth”
“The Art of Gradual Bloom: Embracing Slow Growth for Personal Success”
“Journey of a Late Bloomer
These titles capture the essence of your journey of slow progress, consistency and resilience.
EM- PLEASE KINDLY SHARE SOME OF YOUR SECRETS TO BECOMING SUCCESSFUL WITH EM.
Mmm, successful? I think I’m still on the road to success but my answer is God, He’s the reason behind the level of success I’ve attained. Also, consistency, determination, and mostly all the tips I mentioned in question 5.
EM- WHAT ADVICE WILL YOU GIVE TO YOUTHS WITH THE ZEAL TO GROW?
Put God first, focus on the goal, and always go back to the drawing board some adjustments are necessary, and consistency pays but know when something is not for you, work smart, not hard, and try to create multiple streams of income at least 3. I’ll leave it at that for now.
