Entrepreneur | Affiliate Marketer | A Proud Mom
The important thing about life is not being afraid to take a chance. Your greatest failure is to not try. Always rekindle your possibilities and stop comparing yourself to others and realize how full your life is and appreciate your value.
My name is Ruth Morgan, I am from Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. I am a University of Uyo graduate with a degree in Medical Microbiology and Bacteriology. I'm married with 3 lovely children that I adore so much. I am a professional teacher, a Fashionpreneur and I am an affiliate marketer. Affiliate marketing involves earning a commission by promoting a product or service made by another retailer. It is a monetization model where an affiliate partner, which is you, is rewarded a payout for providing a specific result to the retailer or advertiser.
What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them?
As an entrepreneur, one of the hurdles I faced in the beginning when I first started was self doubts. I was always afraid of failure. Asking myself, "What if I start and I am not able to make it like others? What if this doesn't work out for me? Does the market have a gap for me? These were my fears about my online businesses but I thank God for my mentors, they were able to talk me out of those fears and showed me what to do.
What books are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Breakthrough Advertising.
What advice would you give to an upcoming youth or talents locally and internationally?
