I started hustling very early in life. I understood that money was madefrom the exchange of goods and services and knew I was going to end uprunning my own business as a child. Interestingly, I got married and hada baby before I left university, so it was inevitable that as soon as Igraduated that I had to run my own business rather than look foremployment. I had a personal benchmark of having savings per month thatequaled the salary of a graduate at that time. That meant that I had tobe efficient with the work and time spent doing it.
Culturally as a mother and a wife, I was responsible for laundry,cooking, and cleaning. I spent most of my weekends running around like aheadless chicken to fit in shopping and all these other activities. Ibegan to resent doing them at a point and started to dread weekends. Tosolve this problem, I commenced research on the sort of home appliancesI needed to relieve the stress of weekends. I remember visiting storesto get to know their prices and that information was all I needed todecide to free myself from the shackles of unending housework.
As a founder of the largest retail baby business in Nigeria, one of thequestions I get frequently asked by women is how I was able to grow andrun my businesses while managing the home and my time effectively. Theanswer is making use of home appliances to do the housework. Homeappliances are machines designed to do most of the work we spendprecious time on.
