Hello Jolaade, it’s good to have you here. Let’s meet you and tell us about your business
Hi, I’m Jolaade Adeyemi. I sell unisex quality wears on Twitter @jola_adey and @maynah_collectionzz & @maynah_thrifts on Instagram.
How long have you been running your business?
I started my business in 2017.
Describe a major highlight of your business.
There was one time I ordered some goods from china. My first china importation. Mehn I was so happy even after knowing that I spent way too much for shipping and all. It didn’t bother me 🥰
What do you enjoy most about being an entrepreneur?
The smile I put on people’s faces when they rock our wears for the first time. The picture reviews are everything.
What are some of the challenges you’ve faced or still face since you started?
Omo! Entrepreneurship no be beans o.
Delivery delay from logistics
Trust issues from new customers
How do you deal with these challenges?
For delivery delays, I give my customers the pros and cons and also give them a week delivery time frame.
So they can rest assured it’ll get to them. Most of the time they get it earlier than expected.
As for the trust I try as much as possible to give them reasons not to be via video calls. I have an active WhatsApp group open to all new and old customers too

One piece of advice to business owners and aspiring ones
Never give up. The road is tougher when you doubt your ability.
