Do you think Africa is a good place for starting an online business?
I think Africa could be the next big Internet boom hot-spot. I truly believe there are fortunes to be made in Nigeria for those that grasp it and run with it. Fortunes I Say!
What’s your general perspective about Nigeria?
My general perspective of Nigeria – ‘Huge Opportunity!’ There are good people and bad people all over the World, just like there are good clients and bad clients… It all comes down to – Who do you want to associate yourself with?
Who are your seven closest friends, or people you hangout with? If it’s more income you want, hangout with people who have it, if it’s a better family life you want, hangout with people who have, if it’s a more spiritual connection you want, hangout with people who have it. I don’t care where you’re from or how you were raised, all things are possible.
