WHAT WAS YOUR GROWING UP LIKE?

 

I was nurtured in Ijebu Ode, Ogun state as a very passionate kid who can spend all day with story books.
I wrote several short stories but the fear of finance made me dump them in the bin.

1. Seth Godin
2. Gary Vaynerchuk
3. Rick Joyner
4. Og Madino

DOES WRITINGS ENERGIZE OR EXHAUST YOU?


As an author of five books at 20, Writing energizes me and gives me a platform to lend out my thoughts, ideas and perceptions to the world.

The best part of writing is seeing your thoughts and ideas packaged into products, for instance raw rice has little beauty until it is cooked and served.

 

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR IDEAS FROM?

 

I extract my ideas from the events that occur around me, life stories, histories and educational materials.



WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

 

"You need no one's permission to succeed, discover the power within you, serve humanity, serve God and live like a legend"



 

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON?

 

This July, I would be hosting a conference "Passion to Profit" in the city of Abeokuta.

My latest book, teach and grow rich will be on sales from 5th of June.




 

 WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN FIVE YEARS?

 

I would be a leading thought leader that everyone looks up to in Africa and beyond.




YOUR NEXT PROJECT



I am starting the thought leadership university Nigeria to raise more thought leaders and help people monetize their passions.


WHAT DO YOU IS THE COMMON TRAPS FOR ASPIRING WRITERS

 

A lot of people will cajole them to write for free under them and help grow their writing which doesn't work.

  

AS A COACH, WHAT DO YOU THINK IS  KEEPING PEOPLE FROM LIVING THEIR BEST LIVE? 

1. Excuses
2. Fear
3. Low self esteem
4. Seeking permission from people.




FIVE FAVORITE BOOKS

 

1. Teach and grow rich in 30days (Written by Samson Egbums)
2. Unshakable by (Tony Robbins)
3. Better than Good (Zig Ziglar)
4. Tribes (Seth Godin)
5. E-myth (Michael Garber)


ARE YOU A MORNING OR NIGHT PERSON

I am both.



DO YOU BELIEVE IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT? 

I believe it’s possible to love someone at first sight; love is a chemistry we can't explain.




DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS.

I am a passionate being...


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ADVICE TO PEOPLE WHO LOOK UP TO YOU.

 

Failure isn't the end in any journey; you can be an expert in any field or get whatever you want If you engage your mind.
