FASHION ENTREPRENEUR – FROM WORKING FULL TIME TO GROW HER CLOTHING LABEL TO Making a difference…
I passionately believe it’s possible to start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can to uplift and change the world. An African fashion social entrepreneur by passion, I find beauty in everything around me. I have an especially unrelenting commitment to doing good while having fun.
I’m excited to empower women to make a meaningful difference in their lives and the world around them. I take a strong stand for humanity. With faith, focus, and compassion, the possibilities are limitless.
Olayinka’s mission in life is to serve underprivileged children in Nigeria. Educating Girls has a phenomenal multiplier effect! Hear Olayinka speak about why she thinks girls’ education should be our priority and how she plans to enroll over a million out of girls in Nigeria! The World Bank says that girls’ education is one of the best investments that a country can make. It helps to positively impact nine of the 17 #SDGs.
Olayinka’s advice to other entrepreneurs:
Build a reliable and solid network, I know it sounds cheesy but they say your network is your net worth. I also send keep in touch emails with people, with no agenda but just to keep the relationship going. Also I say share your resources with each other and only do something if you have a passion for it – because when everything else seems impossible that may be all that there is left to keep you jogging along. And when your project starts getting too big for you to handle, get help, or you can be your own worst enemy.
‘If you don’t dream big, there’s no use of dreaming. If you don’t have faith, there’s nothing worth believing.’
Cheers to embarking on this journey together…
