Friday Inspirations- From A Banker To A Successful Puff Puff Seller


The man wearing white is by name Omotade Johnson. He was once worked for intercontinental bank. He lost his job in 2009 when the banking industry were having crisis at the time. He decided to rise above his situation by setting up a puff puff business of his own. 

Below is his inspiring story he shared with Thisday newspaper below:

Formerly, I worked with Intercontinental Bank PLC. That happened shortly; I lost the job when the bank got liquidated and everything went flat. But, as a man, you have to work and I can’t see anything I can’t do. So that was why I joined the new trend. The business has been on for the past 11 years; I met it in 2012, when I came to Lagos. I never went to school for it, I learnt it from my friends who were professionals in the business. 

Although, some of them were younger than me in age then,
but that never mattered to me, because all I wanted was for them to teach me how to fry and all other things involved, which they obliged and taught me, even without demanding I should pay money for the training. 
So, since I joined, the business has been good; I don’t have anything to regret. I’m not lacking any money. I love the business. It’s quite a profitable one. Of course, if it’s not, this my team you see working here wouldn’t have been here. Because you can’t just wake up early in morning, stay here till night without going home with something that is worth the time and you continue working”.
