How do you feel opening this herbs store today?
I give God all the glory. It is not by my might or power. It is a vision I got over 5 months ago and today, we are many days down the line. But there is no way I will mention this herbs store and I won’t mention Yeye Oge Batlan. She really encouraged me and said Ayimba since you know many things about herbs, why don’t you open a herb store. We have had many testimonies of people whom God has blessed through my used my hands. When people call me to say they are having issues of childbearing, I am having issues with my husband, I ask them to come over, and tell them what to use and buy and what I recommend usually works. I have testimonies of people and I am like, maybe with what I have been through with infertility, this is what God wants me to do.
So, I decided to learn more about herbs and today, I know everything more than you need to solve any ailment the herbs ways.
What were you doing before this, how are you juggling it with this?
Well, I asked the same question from friends. Earlier, I was practically doing this herbs thing for free and it was working. I have many testimonies that the people used to come to and say thank you. I asked myself the same questions, but as my friends said, ‘it is a calling’. My friends E-tower, Batlan, Dosunmu and many others were all pushing me, saying that you can’t know all much about roots and let it die. I give God the glory that I am able to see that this is a calling. I thank God that God makes me see that my years of waiting and finding solutions to my challenges could transform into this herbs store.
I asked if I have to leave my Glo business to float this herbs business, but I see that I can actually do both together, God did it for me. My friends have over 5 businesses each and they are doing fine. So, I have decided to let this herbs business put a smile on some faces henceforth. So everything will walk together.
