Funky pee: How did you start up, because we all know that entrepreneurship is very difficult.
Biggiemobile: I started gadget business around 2003 when I was managing my uncle’s gadget repairs store and phone business center ….
So it’s okay to say I started gadget business as a worker in a gadget store …… but as an entrepreneur I started as a child when I had to help my mum hawk what she was selling and I had to ensure I make my personal profits cos she’s always telling us the totally cost of the goods and tells us whatever we make outside the total cost is ours … so I started my life as an entrepreneur as a child trying to make more of a family business.
