So Ludas Social decided to take a look at some highly respected individuals and entrepreneurs in the society and this time, we went deep to Ota one of the special cities in Ogun State where we found a young and brilliant mind who shared with us his experience on how he started his career as an Architect to being a successful one at that, how he used his last savings to kick start his business even when he had no clients (not everyone can actually do this).
Dear LSB readers, I give you Arc. Opeyemi Samson Popoola
In his interview, he said
“I was scared initially but I knew I wouldn’t die of hunger.
It was a decision of distinction blessed by God in my 2nd/3rd year in school (Bells University of Technology) in school to be an Architect-entrepreneur after years of training/service under my father- Arc. S. K. Popoola(a well-known Architect/Contractor in Ogun State).
I used my last #10,000 savings after my B.Sc to obtain Business cards with no clients, but I stayed positive.
Today I design and print business cards for upcoming entrepreneurs.
I encourage youths to believe in dreams they have and try to achieve every with no damage done”
Was all he said!!!
Rumor has it he’s the CEO a digital publication company, an architectural/construction firm and the MD of his father’s company
More details will be coming up soon.
