The biggest challenge at the on-set for me was how to associate with great mentors who would steer me out of my comfort zone. And as soon as I found those key people who wanted me to excel in broadcasting and all spheres of media services, I surmounted that challenge.
Next challenge was figuring out how to make my passion pay my bills. Before I got to this point, I had been misinformed about how to run a business, so I hurriedly went ahead to register a company before finding out how to make money off it. So, while I was able to score a few jobs, they weren’t enough to cover my bills, neither did I have the skill set to achieve that. To compound it all, potential customers weren’t willing to pay for my services but wanted it done for free or next to nothing. As a result, I struggled to figure out how to make my business viable. Many times, I attempted to write to the FIRS to suspend activities in my company name as I wasn’t getting any inflow, but I was encouraged to persevere. And persevere I did.
