This Is What Dreams Are Made Of

Was in Ibadan over the weekend, my second time in almost 2 years since I left there.

We had an event to attend, so we had to drive past NTA and memories came flooding back.

You see, 2 years ago I was on one of the sets for my friend Juli-Ann Agorye’s show talking about digital marketing.

The show was so good I was invited back more than once.

But what’s funny was that before getting on that show I didn’t even know anything about digital marketing.

What’s even funnier is that most of the stuff I eventually talked about on the show was what I pinched from reading tweets from @ronaldnzimora, @toyinomotoso and @akinalabi.

2 years ago I was on my khaki trekking from Sango to Agodi on Thursdays.

And I had no idea where my life was headed.

2 years later, I work directly or indirectly with some of the guys whose tweets I used to front.

I also have a small community where I teach digital marketing with a few other guys.

I have a thriving blog where I write regularly about sales and marketing.

I’ve collaborated with and will still collaborate with these guys killing it out here in direct response.

Pure stuff of dreams.

And I swear, I’m not trying to motivate any of you.

I just wanted to let you know that it’s okay if you’re uncertain about what next to do with your life or you have no idea how to go about it.

It’s okay to be confused.

It’s okay to not know where next your life is headed.

I was in this same place 2 years ago and thank God for NYSC (the one reason why I’m sentimental about it).

I used that entire year to just read lots and lots of books, meet people, make friends, get my shit together, and figure my life out.

You might not have the luxury of an entire year but it’s okay to just go slow while you try your hands at different things to know what works for you.

Like I said before I’m not trying to motivate you, I guess I’ve just been lucky enough to get here.

But I just hope this helps you.
