“I had been in business before, and I was mentally ready to start another business, but I was struggling with structure and developing a focused strategy for how to begin. Just two months after working with Titilayo, I submitted my first proposal, gained my first paying clients and turned a profit for the first time in my business. I'm officially an entrepreneur again!”

“Over the course of working with Titilayo, I developed a clear vision for how I will start consulting, where this could possibly lead, and I reaffirmed my value in the space I intend to consult in.
