How do you manage to strike a balance between your business and your studies?
I manage to strike a balance between business and my studies through self-discipline, passion and the love for both.
I ensure I have a schedule drawn up and I keep strictly to time. And I always try to do several things at the same time.
What are the skills needed for one to toe your line of business?
Well the skills set needed for one to toe my line of business are self-determination and pragmatism, because clients will test your will power and your logistics have to be perfect. As such you have to be very practical in your planning.
What do you think is the place of business such as yours in Nigeria?
Catering and event planning has a place in Nigeria as it always provides employment for young persons, especially as part time for those who are in school. For instance, at every event you will need the waiters, cooks, DJs and so on. As such, young persons can be in school and still acquire skills; this means that by the time they graduate they not only have qualifications but skills too.
No profession or venture is without its challenges and gains. What are the gains and challenges of being a young entrepreneur?
The challenges have always been funds for logistics and also to get updated decorations and equipment. The gains can’t be measured because besides the monetary gains, Luk-Philz Concept has been able to put smiles on the faces on some Nigerian youths through our trainings thereby making them self-reliant as they do not only possess the skills, but get paid for services rendered.
