All my life I had invested great passion and time to my first love- fashion designing. This span close to thirty years of my life. My expectation then was success that will make me outstandingly wealthy. Later in years, I realised that it’s one thing to be a gifted artist but another thing to be a real businessman. My all encompassing creativity in such area… textile, embroidery, african attire making with its accessories: cap and shoe, head tie, shoe, bag and shawl for ladies. Seminar bags, mouphla. Everything around fashion am there. I do flags as well.
I hope and hope to get there. The closer i am, then something pulls it further. From 1- 10- 20 years plus, close to 30. I deliberately separated myself when it look like I need special hand of God in my situation. One thing I had never done and will never do is to ask God why? It is too big a question for me. At every stage of those terrible disappointments, I always give Him thanks for keep me going.
As I advance in number(age), I keep open mind looking for legitimate opportunity. One great thing I desire from when I was even young is to be a global brand. I thought fashion would take me there. Despite many failure to achieve that prior to now. The focus is intact.
August ’12. A sister, friend, leader in FLP. A Diamond Manager with the husband wheel-barrowed me into Forever Living Products network marketing business. She did the unusual, buys in my name to elevate me to the next level of supervisor without doing anything or knowing how to go about it. I eventually sign on two person, they too could not make any headway. Instead of given up, I started lookin for a way out. Went after life story of leading FLP managers. First Kim Madsen, a Dutch Diamond Manager and then the topmost FLP Manager Rolf Kipp, a German Double Diamond Manager. His statement that if he has to start all over again, he will go online. That statement influence me greatly. Prior to that I had attended a seminar on creating blog and how to monetize it. There was no tools in place to start then.
But today by grace, taking small step at a time. I am a blogger on the run of life. Blogging got all of me because of what it offers:- freedom, lifestyle, travellin, adding value to others, giving me a voice globally, getting knowledge on daily basis and so much more.
I have lived in Calabar for the past seven years, kind of being closed up. Thats even the reason for lack of prospect yet am not an introvert. But eventually, I stepped out of my comfort zone and damn the consequence. Breaking the bridge after the cross over. There would be no retreat and no surrender.
Am on a platform of blogosphere and am sure it is a new day of fulfillment.
