It’s such a great thing to have someone guide you in the right direction. That’s the beauty of having a MENTOR!
Hello Wonders! Bonjour… How art thou today? :∗
I’m much excited about today’s post. Oh…there’s a giveaway too! You could win it, you know! I once explained in an old post that I’d feature someone who has influenced me positively with their words / actions. I.e my mentor per time. And share my thoughts on him/her. Not neccesarily a “big shot”. Everyone who has influenced me at some point in time is a big shot biko.
This year, I decided to launch the #MCM series with none other than my dear friend cum business partner Folasade Dapsy-Dan. Whoop! Whoop!!!! Sade and I go wayyyyy back. We met in a vocational centre where we both signed up for dressmaking courses.
You see, my blood has always been hot. Sorry, hawt. And Sade is the exact opposite. It’s a terrible thing to have someone warn you of pitfalls ahead but you still smash right into a rock. I have burnt myself ehn!
I call her my coach. She’s business savvy! Like in many aspects. I got to know about this when we founded our online academy Sew Easy Workshop. Her ability to create content & build our brand from scratch is top notch. I cannot even explain her utmost attention to details, bits of info which my big eye would always miss. Her intuition…I fear! She’s super calm and reallllllly patient. By patient I mean business wise especially. Unlike me. :(
And I loooooove her designs! Oh yes! She makes really nice outfits at Abeni’s Trend. (Not a sponsored ad) Within two weeks of starting our dressmaking course years ago, she arrived in class one day with a dazzling circle skirt sewn with eye-catchy ankara patches. As for me, I was always sewing my dream outfits with “mouth”. Smh.
Hence I decided what better way to thrill you my readers by giving out one lovely box-pleated skirt!
