I studied computer science while observing my industrial training. I was hiking along with my younger brother then an Idea dropped in my mind. I shared it with him. It was concerning developing an App for a particular organization I belong to.
As at when the idea came I was not yet good with programming I was at the learner’s stage but that did not discourage me I decided to move ahead with it.
I was so consumed by the thought of the idea that even at that age I believed I would pull it off no matter what. I wanted to be the one who pioneered the project for that organization.
I was graced to have an audience with one of major stack holders so I pitched the idea to him, I was so convincing and persuasive that he called the major decision maker of that organization on my behalf, remember I can’t handle it myself am still a learner but that is what confidence can do. People believe you for that.
Seeing that I have committed myself verbally I had to live up to expectations, I quickly did some research on mobile app development and requested for quotation from different agencies compared and contrasted their prices, though it was on a high side, I got a glimpse of what the cost could be.
Finally, I met a friend of mine who was actually good with mobile app development and have some prominent projects and portfolios to his belt.

He gave me a reasonable quotation that I worked with while I continue with research.
After about four months I spoke on phone with the major decision maker of the organization and he requested for a proposal and I had spoken like we were a big agency then even if is just in my head then I replied affirmatively and requested for his email address.
It was dawn on me that it was becoming a reality I immediately contacted a friend my colleague at school he designed a commentary card for me and a logo in which I paid 3,000 naira.
Then I Google for proposal templates along with the format of the quotations I have received from the other agencies and I constructed a professional proposal that I sent for review.
After about 3 months I received a call from them and we handled the project they paid me while I paid the developer the profits I got was what I used to begin registration process with CAC in other to be giving more prestige and be seen as an institution and not a one-man thing.
Years downline I have become proficient with Web Development and programming and we have handled some prominent projects like Mobile-App development for Scripture Union Nigeria for daily reading note called Daily Guide.
This is the morals when we started I didn’t have the technical know-how but I had the ideas I was consumed by the idea and of most importantly the ever-present grace of God and sheer willpower to pursue the vision the rest is history.
