It is never easy to quit something you have been so used to and comfortable with. It takes courage to quit a salary paying job and take the risk to start a business you are not sure would be profitable for you.

The hardwork of a Nigerian woman identified as Modupe Awotedu who quit a teaching job to start her own business has shown Nigerians that taking the right risk to follow your dreams is always worthwhile.

Awotedu quit her teaching job six years ago and started a shoe making business. She told NAIJ.com that she learnt shoe making with just N5,000.

She also noted that she has made over a million naira profit from the business since she started six years ago.

The hardworking woman advised Nigerians not to be afraid to take risks to see that their dreams come true.

Awotedu said: “In life, one just has to take risks and believe in oneself. Today, a lot of people have not been able to go into this my kind of business because they believe it is for men or they lack patience. If you believe in a vocation, go for it and be passionate about it.”
