The Secret Code to Growing an Online Business Fast From Scratch

I used to dream of becoming successful at age 30 in obodo naija.

I dreamt of having it all, a good marriage, and loads of money and to be able to take care of my family.

So I got a job.

However, I was stuck after a while.

I could not play politics and I already knew I’d never become rich working for someone else.

I studied the lives of most employees and discovered that unless I became CEO of the company, my chances of being finally independent was almost zero.

And some employees  were just doing a "get by" job

A "get by" job is the type of job you do just to survive

I didn't want to be any of that.

So, I started researching.

I read books like “Rich Dad poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki, and “Multiple streams of income” by Robert Allen.

My research led me to the concept of building tiny online businesses.

This was back in 2015 and as at then, Nigerians believed that anything that had to do with business online = yahoo

Coincidentally a mentor of mine “Ronald Nzimora” put up a seminar on how to sell your brain on the internet.

By this, he meant packaging your knowledge into information products and selling online.

The seminar cost 50k

At this point, I was jobless

Sapa had dealt with me.

I had some small savings somewhere, which I used for the 3-day seminar.
