In the space of 9 months, the fortune of a young man who lost his means of livelihood has turned for the better.
This is the story of Augustine Egbeadokhai who started off the preceding year on a sad footing. This is as he lost his paying job in January 2020.
In a post he made on his Linkedln wall, Augustine said he took to Uber driving after he lost his job to be able to put food on his table.
He happened to come in contact with interesting people as passengers and customers. He developed a good working relationship with his fellow riders and in the course of one of their chit-chats, one introduced him to interior designing.
Augustine liked the idea and began working on it and with time, his existing working relationship with other drivers got him gigs.

Then came the outbreak of Coronavirus that meant there had to be a lockdown when cases were on a rise and this put him out of job again.
Egbeadokhai kept developing and gaining mastery of the interior designing job, he had to learn carpentry and as soon as the lockdown was lifted he floated his own company.
Today, he does his jobs himself as the chief executive officer of Güsken Interiors.
His post on Linkedln read in part:
"I lost my job in January 2020. Then I started driving uber, it was an interesting job. I got to meet alot of wonderful people. One of my riders during our conversation introduced me to interior designs.
"I started talking to other riders then I got some jobs which i had to get expertise help since I didn't know anything about carpentry. Just then pandemic happened, which led to the lockdown.
"In 9 months,it already felt As though I’ve been doing this for 10 years. I discovered myself and I can now literally bring any design to life. I don't know how I do what I do and how I got so good within a short time but I know what GOD cannot do, does not exist!!
"I started my company “Güsken Interiors” To God be the glory....... we keep getting better and stronger by the day."
