What my GoddessTalk show is all about –US-based Bolaji Ajike
Nigerian born, US-based entrepreneur, Bolaji Adeola Ajike is raising the bar in bringing Black-owned business to the world’s attention. She began the journey in 2016 with the establishment of her first company, AfroGanix, with a mission to expose the world to black businesses.
“Over the years, I developed a passion for service and a passion for the economic success of the African Diaspora. After earning my Master’s in Public Administration, I set out to be a “rebuilder of economic anomalies” within the Black Community such as the much touted “Black Wall Street”. I want to see a Black Wall Street in every melanated community globally,” she declared in an interview.
With the vision to expose the world to black businesses, activists, and change makers causing economic seismic shifts across the globe she premiered GoddessTalk Show in June 2019. With the launch of the GoddessTalk Show she was well on her way to achieve her life’s long dream.
“I premiered GoddessTalk Show June 2019 to expose the world to Black businesses, activists, and difference makers causing economic seismic shifts across the globe. All I do is have a conversation with people. We never know people’s backstory and how it can be an inspiration to motivate us to action. I’m an action oriented person. People want to talk all day and do nothing. I don’t have time to waste on words. I think about it, I write out a plan of action, execute that plan and manifest.
“I show people there’s more to life than just sports and entertainment to “make it”. You have people with candle companies killing the game. People with lucrative companies, amazing products that I meet every single day. I get inspired by just listening to their story. I empathize, I show them love, I tell everyone about them, I pay for their products and services myself because of my belief in their brand. It’s a beautiful experience to support our own. I show the human side of the “hustle & grind”. I ask them to share their backstory of who they are outside of just the entrepreneur, activist, etc. How did they get to this point? What struggles did they face? And most importantly how can we support them?,” she said.
“We chit chat, laugh, joke, jubilate , we leave as friends not just colleagues. I’m fulfilled in each interaction. My show brings that love, light, and fulfillment to a global audience. ,” she added.
Continuing, she said, “I literally had a dream I was going to help our people move things across the world. And that it was going to help us in my core missions: helping others. GoddessTalk was me realizing that just posting about people & their businesses wouldn’t do. I had to interact with them. I had to “talk to them”. I had to encourage them. We, children of God, so as a woman it would make me a Goddess & men Gods. So I wanted something to capture us: Gods & Goddesses “Talking” so you got GoddessTalk. But I’m actually quite shy. I didn’t want to be out there meeting people.”
