Follow me as I walk you through the thought process behind why I started The Grind Club. I believe as time goes by and the business evolves, my “why” will change.
Alright, let’s get into it.
You see, I’ve always been an entrepreneur alike youth development, online learning, mobile technology, digital media, entertainment, marketing, tech and even legal, I still felt really sad and unfulfilled.
This will lead me into not finding satisfaction in my job and I will be pushed to start my own business.
I would start a new venture, abandon it, go back to a 9 to 5, get bored and begin to hate myself for taking the job and go back to the business again. This cycle kept on repeating itself.
You see, while at each of these jobs, I will feel like oh you really should be out there building your own company. I’ve always had this nagging feeling to be an entrepreneur and this is the reason why I felt so much unease at most of these jobs.
You can bet that I have built many businesses. From Entertainment blogging and content creation to Poultry farming, e-commerce/mini importation, consulting and food businesses.
Some of them have been monumental failures, some thrived, and one or two still exists.
You bet that I have been burnt and at each of these times, I have gotten up, gotten wiser, dusted my butt and taken on the next challenge.
My friends say I never give up. I admit I am resilient.
I am sure there are people like me out there. People who are not satisfied with the status quo. People who want to get better, people who want to move to the next level of their career and businesses.
I’m talking about the new wave of leaders, disruptors and entrepreneurs in Africa.
The Grind Club is home for these people, a community of like minds who come together for a common goal – getting to the next level in our lives, careers and businesses and creating a network that will help us learn from eachother, share resources that will help us all attain our ambitions.
We would learn, laugh, connect, create friendships and business partnerships and conquer not just Africa but the world.
The Grind Club isn’t open to people in Nigeria alone. Every young person in Africa whether you’re a seasoned and successful CEO, upcoming entrepreneur or rookie career man is welcome. We understand that everyone is at a different stage in life and in career. The Grind Club recognizes this and does not discriminate in any form whatsoever.
No one understands you like we do.
