Since she launched her fashion tech startup Fashpa, Honey Ogundeyi has been on our BellaNaija moguls-in-the-making to watch list. Now, she is sharing her journey via a vlog – “Side Hustle to Empire”
The vlog will focus on the nitty gritty, no holds barred truth on what’s it’s really like to be an entrepreneur. She will discuss her experiences at each stage, from launching and operating a startup, navigating life from a side hustle to a global business, formulating and tweaking an idea, finding product market fit, to choosing the right type of investors and building a team particularly from an African perspective.
In Honey’s words;
I am excited to finally be releasing my vlog. While Entrepreneurship can be great and even appear glam. It takes real clarity of thought, perseverance to be raising something from the ground up especially in Nigeria. However there is nothing like following your passion. Doing it because you’re meant to do it and not just to make money and actually having the conviction to follow through. Today I kick off nice and easy by discussing my journey to becoming an entrepreneur”
‘Side Hustle to Empire’ will be a weekly vlog that will focus on tips, learnings and real life stories from the trenches of one woman in tech.
