What does entrepreneurship mean to you?

The ability to create and manage a business, along with any of its risks in order to make profit. Sometimes, I say it’s a way of being able to express your talent, your creativity and showing the world what you are good and talented at.

If you weren’t an entrepreneur, you would be..?

I will still be an entrepreneur, because it has always been my objective. Having a 9-5 previously, was just basically to get experience in some certain fields. 

If you could go on a lunch date with a lady boss you admire- who would it be and what will you ask her?

Whenever I am asked this question, I always mention Lanre Da Silva. I would have asked her a lot of questions but I have come to the stage of experiencing some things I would have loved to know. Notwithstanding, I would still love to learn from her.
