Super proud of my mama today. Showed up to support her at @wimbizng as she spoke on a panel about negotiation strategies in business, adding value and knowing your worth.
She is also being awarded at the 12th annual International Women’s Entrepeneurial Challenge Foundation as a successful Nigerian woman Business owner which is taking place in New Delhi, India this weekend.
My mom started @schoolkitsng 19 years ago when she was 40 years old; after a lengthy stint working in Oil and Gas. She started that business in a very small location with only 2 employees and has since then, grown into a 5-branch business with over 100 employees, a manufacturing outfit and a wholesale / retail business that services over 500 Nigerian schools and she did all of this while also being an amazing mother to 3 young men.
Mama, I’m constantly in awe of your work ethic, selflessness and also your bravery and resilience in business. I’m so proud of you!
