My gratitude goes to God for life and good health, to @Steemalive I say thank you for organizing this great contest that is going to take us down memory lane. 2020 consist of events of the good, the bad and the ugly to the entire world so pay attention to how it went down with me.
2020 AND YOU
2020 & Me
I believe everybody got into the year 2000 with Great Expectations and for some it actually started well with their Expectations still burning strong. AT the beginning of the year in January I had already lost my business money due to my ATM card and SIM card that I misplaced while en route my family house. I use to sell ladies accessories then and it was quite painful that these happened to me just when I was beginning to enjoy the importation and digital marketing training I learn in October which is 2 months before this sad event. I quickly moved on because I rarely let sad events hold me back so I started working in a network marketing company called Century21 Freedom Group (c21fg).
My experience at century 21 freedom group was superb because I got one of the best mentorship class ever. I felt I was meant for me to be in the network marketing company that's why I had the previous sad event. I was beginning to understand the basics of network marketing and started travelling interstate while waiting for our big trip to the Philippines.
THE BOOM PACK
The great Covid19 visited the world and it was like a joke when it came. It was even more hilarious how Nigerians took it for a joke. I remember my colleagues laughing at me whenever I go to the office with my facial mask as preventive measures.
My network marketing work was already been fun at that time till my office announced shutdown for just 2 weeks. It actually was a Nationwide order. Due to the shutdown I had to leave my personal house to my family house to stay safe. The 2 weeks shutdown was now extended to two more weeks and that was how it continue being extended.
Shortly before the shutdown in late March, I had paid money to involve in an online business that has to do with Ethereum Smart Contract. Little did I know that God pushed me to do that business because the smart contract paid off even when the covid19 pandemic was on and while people were complaining about lack of money and food. These was a plus.
Yemi Blaq & Myself In BOYCOTT The Movie
Time passed into the month of May and we were supposed to premiere a movie I casted in. I casted as a Policeman and the movie was meant to be a Cinema movie. The movie is produced by ‘’Green Neighborhood Films’’ based in Port Harcourt and the movie is titled ‘’Boycott’’. BOYCOTT is about the insurgency in Nigeria and features the likes of Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD), Yemi Blaq and other starts. To this very moment as we speak, the movie is yet to be premiered.
In the same may, my house rent expired and I did not renew it because I never had enough to renew. I could have actually gotten or smaller apartment but I decided to keep staying with my family just for the period of time and see what the situation of the country would be like.
Around June I lost one of my 15yrs old cousin to a cold blooded murderer in Port Harcourt, she was stabbed to death by an angry boy whom she confronted for little misunderstanding of 100naira. Till this very moment the police has been treating this issue with less concern and it is very painful. No amount of Justice served can actually bring her back to life so may her soul rest in peace.
While doing more reseaches online, I started coming across more online businesses which I invested in some and let some go. I had the challenges of recruiting people because the pandemic had affected people's financial life in a very bad way. It was during this pandemic period that I also will decided to set up my online office on digital marketing and started promoting my business. Sometime in September I stumbled on steemit from our much esteemed user @sambee. Yes it has and always until this moment been a great experience on the steemit ecosystem.
Sometime last month in October when the Peaceful protest started about endsars and endpolicebrutality, it was a peaceful one till the government had to disrupt it with their political thugs. They also took laws into their hands and claimed the life of Innocent citizens during the peaceful protest. This happened in several parts of the country but the worst one happened in Lagos on the 20th of October 2020. Here in Abuja I'm happy that I didn't lost anyone though two of my friends really had very bad injuries because of the attack.
I believe in the process of the Peaceful protest and I also believe in the youth of Nigeria. I know we are awake now and will do the right thing when the time comes.
