After completing his studies at the University of Lagos, he was optimistic about landing a well-paying job in one of the city's top companies.
However, his dreams were soon shattered when he realized that the job market was fiercely competitive, and landing a good job was not as easy as he thought. After months of job hunting, he was finally offered a job as a watchman in a small company in Ogun State.
John was not happy about the job, but he knew that he had to start somewhere. He took the job seriously and worked diligently, making sure to carry out his duties with utmost professionalism.

His colleagues and superiors were impressed with his ideas and the passion with which he carried out his duties.
Despite his progress, John still longed for more. He wanted to work in a higher position and earn a better salary. He spent his free time researching and learning about the business world. He read books, attended seminars and networking events, and tried to connect with successful business people.
His hard work eventually paid off, and he was offered a position in the company's marketing department. John was ecstatic, but he knew that he still had a lot to learn. He worked tirelessly, learning about marketing strategies, consumer behavior, and the company's target audience.
John's efforts did not go unnoticed, and he was soon promoted to a managerial position. He was in charge of a team of sales representatives, and he took the responsibility seriously. He motivated his team, set targets and goals, and ensured that they worked together effectively to achieve the company's objectives.
John's success did not end there. He met and fell in love with a successful businesswoman who shared his passion for entrepreneurship. They got married and started a small business together, which grew into a successful enterprise. Today, they have a beautiful child, a cozy apartment in the heart of Abeokuta, and a sleek Toyota Camry.
John's journey from a watchman to a successful businessman is a testament to the power of hard work, perseverance, and determination. He never gave up on his dreams, even when the odds were against him. Instead, he used every setback as a learning opportunity and a chance to grow.
His advice to young graduates is to stay focused, work hard, and never give up on their dreams, no matter how tough the road may seem. He believes that with determination and hard work, anything is possible, and one can achieve their goals and aspirations
