Societal need made me go into business – CEO Prisk Advanced Tutor

For Mrs. Esther Olarewaju, her dream of becoming a business owner would not have been achieved but for passion, which is the propelling force.
The first class graduate in accounting from Leeds University, Ibadan, said she applied for master degree thrice at the University of Ilorin, but was denied admission.
“This setback made me to ask myself what I should do to impact the society as I decided to set up Prisk Advanced Education Resources. Things were bad as I could not raise enough capital to start up the business. I manage with a start up capital of less than N40, 000.
“Things were so rough that I didn’t have money to rent office as I had to partition by husband’s shop into two and made a part coaching centre.
“Later, I managed to secure a conducive space for my students and looking back today, I can boldly say I thank God,” she said.
On the challenges, Olarewaju stated that her school was sealed on different occasions over ‘incessant’ charges.
She, however, advised youth to be focused so as to have a bearing.
“Look inward and ask yourself what your society need from you not what your society can give you.
“This business is more profitable than white collar job as my customers are my boss and director; they can sack me.
“White collar job only exist in the imagination of people who seek it,” she said.
