Today is Shine Daddy’s 4th anniversary.
It’s been a tough journey so far, and I’m so grateful to God Almighty to be a part of it today. It’s not easy to build a business, and I try to remind myself to stay focus and do the best thing I can.
People often ask if it’s easy to build a business. I always tell then it’s not easy. But if I can do it, you can too.
I remember when I want to quit my job at Procter and Gamble and travelling to a foreign land to look for green pastures. I told my friends I was excited to start my own business, and be my own boss. Given people the power to build their own website themselves is a great idea and I am passionate about it.
When I look back on the last 4 years, one question I ask myself is: how do I start my own business? I’m not a University graduate. I’m a foreigner in this country, I don’t have enough money and also have a very fewer resources. The only answer I can think of is: I cared about starting my own business and I care about designing more than anyone else. But I have no knowledge. So, how can I build my own business?
I cared about everyone, and I like each and everyone to build website for their business. And that is what we do today. Although, we have added other services such as Mobile Money and Money Transfer, which allows anyone to send and receive money to and from Nigeria, and I’m excited about it and what it’s going to become in the next five years.
The statistics indicate the first four to five years are the “survival years.” But I thank God Almighty that allows us to survive the first four years and we pray to survive many more years and be a big company that everyone wishes to own.
It’s amazing to see many people have used our services and used our tools to build a real website for their business and organization. Many have send and receive fund through us. We created this new services to help Nigerian in Ghana to get your money back home, and we continue to help small businesses and organization to get their business online.
I’m so grateful to be able to build this business. Thank you for your patronage and for letting me be a part of this journey. We hope to serve you better in the nearest future.
