He made a bold move
Olasupo said he had to do that because he wanted so much to be with his wife and daughter. He stated that the relocation was never easy but he learnt a lot.
He added that among some of the thing he did before he became stable was cleaning a warehouse, drive a forklift, working outside in cold weather, offloading a vehicle off weights, and making deliveries.
After everything, his laughter came
The man was doing all the odd jobs while preparing for exams and job interviews. He had applied for hundreds of jobs.
With patience, perseverance and prayers - things he called the 3Ps - the man was able to nail a job with the Central Bank of Canada.
Olasupo said he would have wanted not to share the story but he considered it important to let people know how hard work is good in self-development.
