I know it’s been a while since I last updated this blog and yes, I know I’ve been pretty inconsistent with publishing post here on ISBlog.
Now, that’s due to a lot of reasons – from completing college education to trying to get a job and also run my freelance business at the side.
That’s no excuse though. I know it’s not a genuine excuse to starve you, my loyal readers of contents.
Well today, I will be continuing on with our interview session by interviewing a very good friend of mine, who happens to blog here with me from long time ago.
He’s a New Media Strategist and a personal branding coach who happens to be clarity coach.
I’m talking about Abraham Ologundudu. The founder of Seasoned Life Journal and Convener of Leverage Conference!
Question: Abraham, how are you today? I hope you are not feeling the recession?
Response: Thank you Big Sam! I am doing quite well. As touching recession, I am not bothered. Humans defined recession based on certain standards. Therefore, I can choose to partake or not. In this case, I am not. ☺
Question: Good to hear that you are fine and are not faced with the recession. By the way, I hope I tried with the short introduction but do you mind letting us in about who Abraham is and what he does to help people?
Response: Thank you Big Sam! You did very well. I would just make a little moderation. I am the founder of SeasonedLifeJournal.com – Nigeria’s No. 1 inspirational and personal development blog. On this platform, I help passionate individuals seeking to make a difference with their ideas, message, and story to get the clarity, boldness, strategy, and tools needed to empower them execute intentionally.

Question: In my findings, I got to know you’d be having this second edition somewhere in Ibadan. Is that true? If yes, what informed that decision?
Response: Thank you Big Sam! Yes, It will be holding in Ibadan. I was born and bred in Lagos. But a this season of my life, I am currently serving my nation as a youth corp member in Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria. So, I decided that Ibadan would have a feel of our vision.

Response: Thank you Big Sam! I believe we all need mental fortitude in other to reach our highest altitude in life. Well, they said the economy is in recession. The truth is that while some are screaming about recession, some others are living life like they are not in this country. Daily smashing goals and reaching new milestones.
I believe the message we are bringing in this year’s edition of Leverage Conference is timely. BRACE UP! It’s a message of hope and mind renewal.
In the midst of seemingly unfavorable economic circumstances, some business owners already reached their revenue goal for 2016 since the first half of this year.
