Resigning my job to pursue my passion is my best decision yet - CEO Fadssignature

By Kemi Mobuse - Monday, March 28, 2016


It takes a lot of courage to just decide to up and leave the known for the unknown, leave a paying job for one that you have no single idea, how it is going to turn out, and such courage and bold move always turn out for the best, simply because its a act of faith as well, and God always reward such people.

That is exactly, what the CEO of Fadssignature did, and she is simply excelling at what she does; she took time out to have a sit down with us....
