Being an entrepreneur is one of the most challenging 'task' one could embark on. Being a pace setter in this fast forward and technology addicted generation is not a child's play either. Some of the secret to being at the fore front of the stage is taking risk, determination, hard work and PRAYER (of course). Whenenver I see a female doing well for herself in a chosen career, I tend to respect and support them. Y'all know how I love showcasing unique talent (s) on this platform, ranging from music artiste, actors, comedian, fashion stylist, Talk Show Hosts and so on. The wonderful designer I brought today is definitely not a stranger in the fashion industry at home and abroad (yep, we that live abroad knows her designs). I recently had a brief chat with her and here is the outcome of our tete-a-tete. Enjoy....
