@funkebucknor was next and the moderator was saying the word that comes to your mind when you see her is 'busy', but for me mine was 'dancer'. She is so upbeat and full of energy and it is contagious. I could hear it in the way she said, "I won't accept anything less than excellence!". She knows exactly what she wants and how to get it..I mean she believes in 'training her competitors'. She is one confident woman. She also took her time to answer my question about how she detoxes herself of being too much in the business. She told me, "you have to train your staff". Last but definitely not least was @oke.maduewesi of @zaroncosmetics. Her story is that kind that makes you remember life happens to many people in many ways and your problems might be an ant compared to someone else's elephant. I also saw firsthand that regret and pity parties don't change anything. The beauty of her story was in how deliberate she was in pushing her brand foward. She wanted global and she crafted it. She knew what people wanted she gave it to them. Strong and determined is a helluva good look on women with a purpose I tell you. She spoke about discipline, integrity and hardwork. "Eat zaron, drink zaron, sleep zaron", she said was her mantra. To be outstanding, your vision has to be clear cut and as real as it can be and you need to give it all it takes.
@osayia Was the awesome moderator that ensured the conversation was directed to address the topic we were discussing. It was a pleasure watching her. I am even more bias because she let me ask my questions.
This summary is nothing compared to what happened, but at least you can catch a glimpse of it through my eyes.. At the end of that session, I think I was emotionally spent. I was so weak that when people were going round talking to the speakers, all I did was stare at them. I knew I hadn't even started the real journey on the road they were inspiring me to take. I could feel their words creating sparks in my brain..I still do. I know it is hard, but If people have built institutions then it can be done.
