I created something despite everything
At 22, his mother passed away. His life was so full of ups and downs, but despite all his challenges, the man succeeded in life and founded a tech company called Utiva.
In his post, he said:
“If you have never failed or experienced a low moment, you will never know some life principles. I have failed on many fronts and when I count my failures, I am always grateful to God for the grace that has kept me.”
About the challenges he faced running a company, he said there was a time the outfit ran out of money and paying salaries was impossible.
Rely on no one but God
Eyitayo stated that when he reached out to friends and family for a bailout, he was disgraced. He attributed all his success to God.
The young CEO advised people to always remain calm when they are faced with tough times and rely on God to pull them through.
