A peep into her businesses
Temi: I run an initiative called Dreamwithtemi – The Chicmumpreneurs Academy, where I teach and empower busy mums who want to start or grow a business along the home-front to achieve business and life success .
I also run an Online makeup school as a side business to also teach and empower women to learn how to “do it yourself”. This helps women to save money while looking glam all the time on their own terms.
How did you get here
Temi: I started doing business while in school and had plans to work for myself after graduation. When I got married our families adviced that I get a job while my husband runs his business so I got a job with a bank. Working in the corporate world enabled me gather some experience and I later resigned to join my husband in running our busines. This enables me to manage my time and my home well.
How long have you been running your business with your husband
Temi: I’m married to my best friend of 17yrs, Olawale Olajide , a lawyer and entrepreneur . We are blessed with two beautiful children. We’ve being running our family business officially for about 12years now, though we’ve been doing small businesses alongside for about 16years after we started dating in school.We try as much as possible not to allow our emotions and relationship as a couple get in the way of our business.
Has is it been easy running a business as a couple
Temi: It was very challenging at the beginning but we’ve been able to put all that aside and work with each other’s strength and it gets better now each day.
What else do you do
Temi: I blog on http://www.urbanfixmakeupacademy.com/blog under dreamwithtemi umbrella on women related topics, but haven’t done so in a while since I began to do videos.
Lifes Motto – You can only experience true happiness and fulfillment when you discover and run with your purpose.
