Thanks @thelagoshustle1 for choosing me as your enterprenuer of the week- our entrepreneur of the week is ms juwon ajiboye. she runs and manages 5 business in lagos. read her interview to find out how she does it
excerpts from her interview :
"name is olamijuwon ajiboye and i am the ceo of @lacremepopcorn customised popcorn, a gourmet popcorn enterprise which makes and supplies scrumptious popcorn for all kinds of events within the state. i have been doing this for close to 3 years now and in addition to my popcorn business, i also run 4 other businesses – an apparel clothing store @lacremecloset, a hamper and gift store @lacremehampersandgifts , a management consulting firm @businessaccelerators and a child care safety consultancy @lacremenannies i’ll be focusing majorly on my popcorn business in this interview.
i knew i was going to go into business right from being a graduate but i needed the corporate exposure which has helped a great deal in structuring my businesses. i ran my first business simultaneously with my paid job for about 2 years, selling from home and my car in order to keep my operating cost as low as possible. when i felt the business was growing, i quit my job after weighing the pros and cons for a few months and decided to rebrand to attract more customers.
over the years i discovered avid popcorn lovers such as myself could not readily access freshly popped popcorn at a moment’s notice. this inspired me to start-up my own gourmet popcorn business, and so far the reception has been very encouraging partly because there is already an existing market for our product. i am currently working on 10 different flavours of popcorn and i cannot wait for it to hit the markets.
the biggest initial challenge for me was marketing...." .
