‘Starting a business itself is a challenge’
”Fashion industry has so many lucrative business opportunities for anyone to invest in said young entrepreneur, Sessi Koshoedo.
Ms Koshoedo who started her fashion line by releasing her first capsule, “Clearly Invincible” earlier this year told YOUTHVILLE that nothing comes easy and hence, starting a business itself is a challenge.
“One shouldn’t go into it thinking everything will be perfect,” she said.
The 18 year old who took a year from school to attend a three month course on fashion at Nobel Afrik said she started the business with about N90,000, money she saved from working at a photography studio and contributions from her dad.
“I had to pitch my idea to my dad to get the balance from him. I did my PowerPoint presentation with budget and break even charts. I broke everything down to detail for him to agree” she said.
“Í took a year off to start the business. This will give something to fall back to after my studies in school considering I will be studying fashion design and marketing at the University and I hope it will give me a clearer guidance and perspective as to how to go about the business after my studies” she added.
Sessi also confirmed the business is a lucrative one considering the patronage and positive feedback her work has been getting from social media.
She also says the whole experience for her has been a challenge but is thankful because it has been a learning curve for her all through.
“My outfits are such that they are suitable for any event. They are the sort of outfit you pick out when you feel like you have nothing to wear,” she noted.
She therefore called on youths to be detailed in their planning and expect the unexpected adding that in business a lot of things happen that one does not plan for.
“Have a positive outlook, things may be difficult but there is always a way out. Because to achieve your dreams you must have the passion and always be ready to do things differently,” she assured.
