“Determination and Hardwork Births Success”- Grace Chito Mark, Millener and CEO, ‘Graces Hats’.
“There is so much money on the road because there is so much we can do”…
For someone whose father wanted her to be a banker, Chito has managed to turn what can be regarded as a small hobby that seemed outdated into a fashion trend by making hats and other exotic head gears.
Despite challenges faced in her business, and with no formal training, she celebrates over 36 years of moving from making hats on a campus in Enugu state to serving top notch clients like Nigerian female senator, Florence Ita-Giwa and Michelle Obama.
Like every successful business owner, her journey has not been devoid of bumps. Her store once got burnt down but that didn’t stop her as she came back bigger and better.
“Challenges cannot stop you when you are determined, Challenges with determination makes you stronger.”
Chito opines that every business woman needs to have a vision and mission their business is anchored on. Vision pushed by hard work coupled with determination leads to success.
According to her, “Determination and Hardwork births success”. She continues “Any woman who has decides to start a new business should not be afraid to start small and grow big.”
We celebrate Grace Chito for being a zenith in her chosen career, for mocking impossibilities, learning and growing while at it.
