I am Lawrence Nwachukwu Jr, working independently as an IT Personnel and also a Manager of a New Detergent Company in Lagos ( Markers of Spiffy Wash Detergent). I reside in Ikeja, Lagos and can be contacted through Instagram Via @laurenxivl
Talking about me as An Independent IT Personnel, I started this Job in 2013, This has always been my dream, To build and make a difference in the IT world, I have worked for a few Companies before I started this job and what motivated me was my Vision and Dreams, also I wanted to create an environment where youths like me can bring in ideas and work together like best friends and family, building each other intellectually, morally and also making waves in IT.
Yeah! there was and are still challenges I go through while doing this, I knew there would be challenges which might tend to knock me off my dreams but I was already willing to face and tackle them as they come, that is one strong will every entrepreneur must posses. The Will of NEVER letting your challenges knock you off.
Most of the challenges I face and are still facing are my competitors and the process of getting my own client. To be an IT professional you must be very creative and must know and follow the trend.
On this road you will meet many people who would make you feel like you are not doing anything because their creativity are outstanding. But when I meet some of these people, I make them my mentor and try every means to learn from them.
Secondly; getting your clients. Its really crazy when everyone is looking for the best at a very cheaper rate so you will need to put in your very best to convince people that you are better than Mr B and be able to give them visual proof and also giving them at a rate that only few people can compete with.
Advice to people aspiring to start a career in IT:
My Advise to people who are trying walk on this IT road, well I would say never remain where you are. Learn to be creative and follow the trend, have an idea of every IT platform and also learn some marketing skills.
For Every Entrepreneur out there, Never involve yourself in a Business you are not Passionate about. The Key to being an Entrepreneur is following your dreams and passion not following other people’s dreams and passion.
