A Nigerian man with the name Vicent Adeoba has shared his story to show that no matter how rough one’s road is, you can still make it if there is strong determination.
Vincent said that he lost his dad at a very young age and his mom passed away when he was four. Two years after that at age six, he started hawking bread to survive.
Everything looked gloomy
A year after that, he started his primary school education, which happened in the year he ran away from home. At age eight, he sold things like okra, garden egg, garri, fish, and others.
Between the age of 10 and 19, he had to wade through many challenges like surviving flood, dropping out of school, and failing WAEC.
His life turned around for good
The good story about it all is that he became a tax consultant at PwC after he had graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.
He also started a business at the age of 22 and two years later, became a millionaire. At 26, he won the Lagos state NYSC inter-platoon debate, among several achievements.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the story of Paul Orajiaka is a perfect example that Nigerian youths have great entrepreneurial spirits that could turn the least sought-after thing into an empire.
The CEO of four-story Auldon Toys building, Paul has his business situated in one of the busiest places in Lagos state, the nation’s economic valve.
He never had it easy as Paul had to start from a very humble place. He began his toy selling business at the young age of 18.
At that age, he would buy from a big local trader and resell it to Park ‘n’ Shop just for a very tiny profit. It is interesting to note that he was doing that as a side hustle to his day job.
