A little bit about me and how I got here
I am a Nigerian girl, born and bred in Lagos. In 2010, I started making Ankara inspired t-shirts and accessories and the name of my business was ST Colours. One day, I woke up with a strong desire to share my knowledge of how to make Ankara accessories with others. I wanted to teach people how to make Ankara Accessories, so that they could become empowered.
I held my first workshop in the garage of my parent's house. All my siblings and even my parents helped to set up the place. They cleaned the place, washed and arranged the chairs and tables, and re-parked the cars. Here is how it looked when they were done.
Unfortunately, nobody attended my first workshop. After crying my eyes out, I decided to try again and this time, I started marketing my workshop online. To my amazement, people started reaching out to me from different parts of the world. I could not travel to all the cities I was getting requests from and I decided to launch my first online course.
To date, this course has been taken by people in over 9 countries including Cameroon, Kenya, Australia, Zambia, Canada, United Kingdom, United States of America, South Africa and also Nigeria.
I went on to launch over twenty online courses and as I did this, I documented my processes. I discovered what worked and what didn't work and I started to create a framework for launching perfect online courses.
With time, people started asking me to show them how I was making money from courses and I started to teach my framework. Today, hundreds of women have used my proven framework to launch their own online courses and generate up to five figures in dollars.
My goal is to help more female entrepreneurs to scale up to six figures using online courses.
In 2018, I published an Amazon Best Selling Book, Knowledge is the New Gold, to show more people that they could turn their skills, knowledge and expertise into profitable online courses
In 2019, I launched a tech platform, TrainQuarters which makes it easy for course creators to host and sell their online courses, especially if they're not techies.
I've been featured on so many platforms including Guardian Woman, Business Day, Vanguard etc
