Anita Okoye has just taken that bold step, quitting her 9-5 job and she says she has no regrets.

She said:

”C H A N G E S: This quote resonates with me because, at the beginning of 2016, I found myself unfulfilled in my 9-5. Life was a bit robotic, mundane, I felt limited. I never knew I would be an entrepreneur, but I knew I didn’t want to be sitting behind a desk all day.
The creative in me wanted some shine and I had to answer.
Quitting my job, was a huge risk, financially and psychologically.
I swapped my high heels & Blazers for sneakers and hard hats.
I have no regrets, no looking back. I’ve been taking it one day at a time, it’s not been easy, but I’m nearly ready to reveal my new projects.”
