This young lady, named Olabisi is a very rare breed. She voluntarily went into carpentry because it is her dream.
This is really encouraging while the recession is biting Nigerians hard, this young lady is trying to make name and cash for herself by doing what many feel unfit for the womenfolk.
According to the lady simply identified as Olabisi, she learnt carpentry by herself by undergoing online training on Youtube and free online books.
After few months of training, the proud carpenter is now making some sales and pocketing some cool cash.
On her decision to tread where few ladies dare tread, she said:
So about a week ago, I started my self carpentry training..waow!thanks to YouTube and the free carpentry books online. I had actually thought it’s going to be an easy ride but eish….it’s not been easy and neither is it as difficult as I was told it would be.
The beautiful thing is, this journey is revealing to me much more than ever that God is a God of process. Therefore, no pressure! Whether I succeed or fail is inconsequential, I am open enough to take the risk to fail. No pressure. No quest for instant gratification. No immediate result needed. For me, its all about enjoying the process.
