How to Build a Profitable Side-Business (as an employee)

Our very first guest is a serial entrepreneur, who has started and run all kinds of businesses since he was in his teens. But he is currently the Chief Strategist and CEO of Extrafemi; a parent company comprising of 4 startups- Extrafemi Social, Wakafire, ChatClass NG and Page 4.

Wakafire Photography (which is where he seems to be putting in all his energy these days hehe) is a premium mobile photography startup that uses the latest phone technology to shoot professional-grade photos. As the head photographer of Wakafire, he not only covers events and provides brand shooting services for clients, but he also has one-on-one training and an onine course through which he teaches entrepreneurs how to take professional-grade photos with their phones so they can have lit pictures for their online marketing efforts without having to spend a lot of money paying a professional photographer.
