Growing up was so dramatic for me .Okay, I was a very lively child ;very articulate ;you reckon, don’t you? I had different people calling me different names that were fun to them ( Of course because I was a kid, so they weren’t )! Some of them were so embarrassing to me as I began to grow and become more self aware!
Sista Kate’s Special Biscuit, Chop 1 ,Chop 2, 121 Aja Road Aba! This was just one of them! I recall back then, my Uncle Olere will start singing once he sees me! duh, I had my mum to blame for it! what kind of advert is that biko lol

Okay so my mum owned a pastry shop , apparently she opened it at the time I was born and boom!, I made a perfect Ad content. Hey Ro, pray I won’t do this to you because I have to find a way to retaliate. As it is, Body Gold Products are already calling you ! Back to the story, the interesting thing was my baby mind will tell me I wasn’t even the Kate in question. Because I was named after my step mother so I actually thought she was the owner of the pastry shop so ”It can not pain me plenty”. Only for me to find out my mum used my name for such hahahahaha!

Now you see the problem? Can you imagine people reciting Sista Kate’s Special Biscuit, Chop 1, Chop 2, 121 Aja Road, Aba. Every time!
Now, looking back, I think my mum did a good job of being her own loud speaker. Yes! She used a name that will be easy to recall, in fact she joined both the address into the whole thing. Her call to action was probably Chop 1, Chop 2…Meaning you will definitely return again after a trial! So she was sure of her trade, she knew she got quality.

Bhet, I have another question why did they put sista for me me?( Sista is the pidgin for Sister)
To think that she was unschooled, yet knew the importance of Adverts, yet we have loads of graduates who run business and are waiting for their ”Fine market” to sell itself! How Nice! How will people take you serious if you are not passionate about what you do? If you do not talk about it? If you do not go the extra mile?. Before anybody will ever assist in ”louding” your business, you have got to do the work!

So get back to the drawing table, talk about your business, use the social platforms you have ; sell your self. You may not be doing it the professional way Yet but the journey of a 1000 miles begins with a step, Rome was not built in a day either! Life rewards those who try and not those who sit on their talents and still think they are better than those who are already doing stuff albeit small. Check the parable of talents in the bible!
