I enjoy having discussions that generate ideas and practical solutions to personal and business challenges.
Some of what I have done with my life wouldn’t have been possible but for the experience, I had in attempting what seem to be an impossible feat to many of my friends and family members. After my dad refused the idea of funding the programme, I couldn’t bring myself to just roll over and give up. Something inside me felt strongly that there must be a way.
And that was the beginning of a series of events that helped me turn around an impossible situation. I approached the school for a discount which they gave and my total fee got reduced to N115,000.00 and that was still an impossible figure. So, I went back to them and ask to pay in instalments… surprisingly they agreed to 3 instalments of 45-45-25. Mind you, I still don’t have the money for even the first instalment. Then, I figured if I could talk to people maybe I could get help. So, I started with my elder sister who had some money kept with her by a friend and I was able to convince her to loan me the money. With that 15,000 I went to the school and paid a deposit and asked for the materials, promising to pay up. In the process, I got a job and was able to pay up the first instalment and in time paid back my startup loan.
Then something amazing happened when I was approaching the payment of the second instalment. I got back from the training school one evening and met my dad behind his home office desk. He stopped me and began to ask questions about how I got the ideas and money to start the programme and after I explained, he said in a typical African dad way, no well done, no emotion shown, ‘Don’t worry about the remaining fees, I’ll take care of.
