Here is what Timi has to say about her journey as a young Entrepreneur :
The birth of Timi.Dabiri started as a dream in June 2016. First, I had to go and learn the process of making shoes and took lessons during weekends from a woman that stays around my house as I also have a regular job. As soon as my skills where perfected, I went ahead to register my brand and kicked off from there. Since we started, business has been amazing as I have been having numerous orders.
My major challenge is juggling my regular job and running the business. Meeting deadlines for customers have been a bit difficult, since I only have weekends to work. So I needed to hire a cobbler to assist me so I don’t get to disappoint clients.
My advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is that as you receive the idea, pray about it and then start immediately. Avoid procrastination, because the minute you do, it is gone out of your head. Thousands of people out there have the same business idea as you do, so be creative, go the extra mile and think outside-the-box. For me, I add a little personal note on all deliveries to customers. The response I get from them is truly amazing and gives me more fulfilment than the money I’m paid. My focus at the moment is providing exceptional service and building customer loyalty with all my customers.
