On a Saturday morning during summer, my mum and I were looking for a business school because I wanted to start a business where I would write to make money. I love writing and I would love to do it professionally. So we found out about Kid Entrepreneurs and I signed up for the MBA classes after looking through some of their posts on Instagram.

On Monday, I went for my first class at Kid Entrepreneurs building in Lekki Phase One. As I walked up the stairs and through the door there was a feeling of hope and kindness. I saw beautiful and handsome teachers to guide me and everyone else that was learning with me.

I learnt that to achieve a successful business you need to have the board of directors and some important roles. At the M.B.A class, I realized that it is not enough to have money and a business idea, but you also need to have a C.E.O, who will be in charge of the daily administration and development of the business, the C.F.O, who will be in charge of money and how it will be distributed and stored. Then you need to have someone who will be in charge of sales and marketing. One vital rule that I took away from the MBA Class is that a C.E.O should listen to the people below him/her and use their ideas to develop the business. Secondly, a C.E.O should make sure that everyone is treated equally. I learnt how to make decisions that are rapid and highly creative.

Ideas comes to us frequently, we only use them well or ignore them.I am going to use all the knowledge I got from the M.B.A class to start my own business and make it successful. The skills I acquired will be so useful, I’m more creative now and my Mum says I’d master the skills of writing if I keep improving on it. I want to start a writer’s club and I have now identified who the C.F.O and Marketing director will be. I have also identified a very smart friend of mine who will be the creative director. I am sure our writers club will be very successful.

Unfortunately, I had to leave the M.B.A classes at the end but I had a very wonderful experience, particularly making new friends, making arts, bow ties and head bands and selling them to make some money.
Thank you Mrs Bowale for making my MBA experience a memorable one. Look out for my writers club…
