In her words:

“I’m 25 years. Started on the 15th of august 2022. I started my thrift business with 25,000 naira that time and I started with Chiffon tops which I got from a vendor on Instagram.

“The tops were sold for 25k for 30 pieces so I sold for 1,000 naira each. And I made profit of 5,000 like after a week of posting.”

After seeing how successful and fast the Chiffon sale was, Meeinah expanded her business to include the sales of shirts.

“I sold everything and I was amazed coz people really rushed because I sold for 1,000 naira each. My next purchase was checkers shirts. The smart entrepreneur mentioned that TikTok app helped boost her business and enabled her to get visibility.

She said:

“From then I started advising my business on TikTok. I won’t even lie TikTok really helped my business. Within a year I already have over 5,000 followers on Instagram and most of them are from TikTok. “And I use to do sponsored ads on Instagram too. At least 2 times in a month.

The 25-year-old who currently earns millions from her business said she delved into the business due to her passion for it. According to her, she didn’t jump on the business because someone asked her to or because she wanted to ‘copy’ someone.

In her words:

“So to cut the long story short, the only thing that gave me courage was because I love my business.

“I did not start because someone was doing it. I started becoz I have passion for it and I put all my energy into my advert skills.”

She advised young people to have passion for what they do because it’s the only thing that will give them the courage to continue whenever the going gets tough.

“So my advice for young people is that they should have passion what for whichever business they want to do it’s only the passion that will keep them moving. I have experienced bad bad things in the business ooo. But I’m still learning and I’m so happy I did not give up. I am currently serving and I earn millions”, Meeinah said.
