Are you struggling with your Dreams? Read and Learn From Linda Ikeji's Story Here

Linda Ikeji

No matter the little we have achieved in life, we all have a story to tell. But no matter how interesting the story starts, the end is what always perfect the morals in the story.

This is an undiluted account of how a popular Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji struggled in an attempt to be a publisher of a magazine but failed woefully.

She didn't give up then. She continued by switching into blogging which catapulted her to where she is now; from a person who was arrested for owing less than 200 thousand Naira to a person who bought a mansion worth 500 million Naira.

Read her story here:

From 2006 to 2009, I published 5 editions of FM&B (Fashion, Modeling & Beauty) magazine. I gave it up in 2009 after a series of unfortunate incidents including being arrested for owing a community bank N190k 😭😭 which I borrowed to add to the money I had to print the magazine and vendors taking your magazine and not paying you a dime.

I did an official launch of the magazine in 2006 at Golden Gates restaurant in Ikoyi. I was 26 and was so hopeful. I was sure this was the venture that would change my life! Lol. Because of my love for writing, I opened my blog a few months after I launched my magazine and never imagined that platform which took me less than 5mins to open would be it and not other things I'd dedicated my time, but my blood, sweat and money into.

The last photo is the magazine I never got published. The 6th edition. Even after being arrested for owing money, I was still determined to continue. But the printer I gave money to print the magazine disappeared with my money! 😭😭. I should have known better because he charged me way less than others did. I was so happy, not knowing he had no intentions of printing the magazine. Lol. Anyway, after that experience, I was done. That was the end of FM&B. But it wasn't the end of my dreams! I continued to struggle.

6 years later, I would buy an N500million home in one of the choicest areas in Lagos. And I paid cash! 😉. Trust me when I say God is seeing your struggles and if you never give up, He will show up and uplift you in ways you never thought possible!

It's okay to give up on SOME dreams. Just don't give up on YOUR dream. There's a difference!
