Born

out of a desire to connect
with and cultivate a community with other like minded female Creatives,The idea for The Lagos Collective came to me shortly after I had just had my son and was planning out my strategy for re-launching
my businesses and running them to my full potential following a year long break. I remember back then thinking it would be a good idea if there was a place I could go to connect with other passionate Creatives just
like me with whom I could exciting, meaningful and enriching conversations about our businesses and careers, the topics we are passionate about, where we could go to get help and also learn from each other whilst having fun at the same time doing this in a carefully curated environment. Less than an hour later, I had purchased and secured my domain name on the relevant social media platforms.

 

Despite doing so,

I still had this nagging feeling like “who was I to do this?” thinking I had to first of all establish myself and be successful with my businesses before I could then go on to launch The Lagos Collective. I am a special kind introvert, so it was easy for me to come up with a million and one reasons why I couldn’t do this; I had little or no social media following, hated the idea of putting myself and my art “out there” and simply felt I had to first of all  “be or appear to be successful” before I could actually start my own Davos.

 

After sitting on this idea for the better part of the year, I finally decided get out my own way, focus on what I wanted to achieve, my purpose and take the plunge in the third week of October and here we are today.

Less …….. weeks later we launching The Lagos Collective and hosted the workshop

 

In 2017,

I intend to return with renewed enthusiasm in my quest to build The Lagos Collective Brand. I invite you to join me on this journey of creating and fostering opportunities for deeper connections, lasting friendships, supportive alliances and creative insights with other like minds who want to change the status quo and stand out from the crowd in a refreshingly authentic way.

 

LETS GET THE CONVERSATION GOING!!!
