Please introduce yourself
My name is Janet Alalade, the CEO of Daisy Jane cakes n more.
What prompted you to become an entrepreneur?
My passion did. I don’t like idleness and wanted to keep my hands busy (having multiple streams of income). Also I wanted to be an employer of labour, giving back to my society and impacting lives. And as to the Event sector, I wanted to stand out by rendering quality event services and making sure there’s a deep joy and satisfaction in the faces of clients.
How has the journey of entrepreneurship been so far? Tell us about your challenges and triumphs.
Hmmmn…. Well its been good, interesting, and eye opening. I have learnt sooooo much, to be better, to tackle challenges, communication skills (relating to different caliber of people) and also work under pressure. I‘ve had the privilege to train over 35people. We’ve been able to handle jobs and event outside our state of residents.
Another is relocation, since I’m married to a blessed and wonderful man, I have to migrate as he migrates #lol. So the process of rebuilding the business in a new location and getting new clients and customers, making the brand known has been serious work and a challenge.
And then FINANCE, everyone needs that to achieve certain ideas, goals, plans and dreams for their businesses. #winks
What is your greatest need as an entrepreneur right now?
Hmmm, My greatest need right now is more FINANCE and the right staffs. #smiles
