Kemi Mobuse: Can we know you?

Errand Lady: I am Ibukun Ayodele

Kemi Mobuse: What do you do?
 
Errand Lady: I'm into Errands and delivery services
 
They also assemble party bags for your children's parties
Kemi Mobuse: What inspired you making this choice of profession?
 
Errand Lady: Well, I once worked as a customer service representative at an online store. I realized they had some setbacks while serving people. So it prompted me to work on those disadvantages
 
Kemi Mobuse: How did you start out? And also raise the capital for start up?
 
Errand Lady: Well the business actually fine tuned itself. Because, I only had the mind for running errands for busy persons. But, once I'm done with those errands, I deliver to their offices or homes.
Then I started getting calls majorly from bakers who wanted safe delivery of their fragile cakes to their clients. That was how it started. As I use my personal car for it.
 
Sincerely, I started with basically no capital. It was just a thing of trust. The first client who called me up after seeing my post on instagram paid before I ran the errands for her
Then it went on from there.  That's why I maintained my personal instagram page. For trust. And for people to know Errand Lady. There are so many scammers out there these days.
 
Kemi Mobuse: Lovely ! What inspired your choice of name, Why not something with logistic or delivery in it?
 
They help buy and brand your souvenirs for your special occasions
Errand Lady: I just thought of what a bit Catchy was and funny. Nothing spectacular. That's why I said its God

Kemi Mobuse: And how old is your brand now?

Kemi Mobuse: What major challenges have you had to deal with since starting out, how did you cope, more importantly what can you say you learnt from them?
 
Errand Lady: The major challenge I always have sometimes is traffic. When you plan on delivering some items and you can't get there at the said time simply because of traffic. And then some petty clients who take you for granted just because they feel you are an errand or delivery person.
 
Kemi Mobuse: What is your favourite part of what you do?

Errand Lady: My favorite part is the smile on my customer's face and the look of satisfaction they give.

Kemi Mobuse: Any advice for upcoming entrepreneurs?
 
Errand Lady: Steadfastness is key. In my line of business, patience is paramount because you have different clients. So you must be patient.
