Nigerian Singer Cum Entrepreneur, Mocheddah has said despite the glamorous photos she posts on the gram, life in Nigeria for her as a business owner is hard and it more often than not brings her to ‘crying’ for the nation.
In a post she shared on social media, Mocheddah expressed the stress she goes through as a business owner to satisfy her customers.
This is me —
After a goooood cry �, I had to wipe my tears , drink tea , get on the phone and get work done .
40% of my time is spent on the phone talking , I do not wish it so but it is , I’m either talking to staff , a supplier or trying to get logistic companies to “do their job “on time because customers need their orders ..
Another 40% is spent on the field , in the sun buying materials I would need or on an okada trying to meet up with a delivery, ( I’ll post the picture soon )
The last 20% is what I have left for myself , family and other businesses I run … .
.It is HARD , I cry , I cry a lot .. .
that’s the only way you can survive as a Nigerian business owner … .
Do not let my Instagram slay pictures deceive you , being an ADULT is HARD work, being an entrepreneur is even HARDER .. .
If you must chop you must work
On the brighter side God rewards hard work … so you will always reap what you have sewn .. I’m writing this to let someone out there know it’s hard for me too … but we will survive .. PS- try drinking green tea – it makes it easier.
