This Week’s Top Stories: Meet Mary Azaki Sabo- Marketer, Entrepreneur, Humanitarian, And Fashion Designer

Independence is a character trait that many people admire. Independence does not mean that we don’t need the love and support of others in our lives, but it does mean having the courage to pave your own path. Life and career success often requires a level of independence — a willingness to break away from the pack to prioritize your freedom and find your own way.
Many of the successful women we admire today and throughout history are independent women who have overcome adversity and challenged the status quo — they’ve taught a lot of lessons about independent women. They serve as role models for many women who continue to pursue their passions in order to fulfill purpose and become independent, whether striving to be an independent thinker or to become financially independent. If you encounter challenges or ever need to go at it alone – look for successful women to inspire you and keep you motivated.

Today I want to celebrate one of such women. I will briefly introduce her and give you quick detailed profile of this strong independent woman: Mary Azaki Sabo.


Introduction: Mary Azaki Sabo, from Abaji area council, FCT Abuja, Nigeria.

Mary is a serial entrepreneur and hard worker. I have had the privilege of working with her in the past and I can testify to this, she gets the job done. She calls herself a “workaholic”. She loves cooking, travelling, swimming, and playing candy crush.

Mary speaks 4 languages; English, French, Hausa, and her native language Gbagyi fluently.

She is a marketer and the lead marketer for Louis Vuitton in Abuja Nigeria. Aside doing what she loves best which is marketing, Mary is also a fashion designer. Am sure very soon her brand will be going global. Aside this, she also has a laundry service, and passionate about mining. She plans to develop the mining industry in the country, by involving the youths in developing the mineral resources sector in the country.

Mary is also passionate in giving back to the society. She is the CEO of Azaki foundation. Her foundation focuses on “Women in Distress”. Most of them are widows and single mothers. She sensitizes them of their values and never to give up on life.

True Story Of A Lady That Conquered Depression To Become A Business Owner And An Entrepreneur.

Hey guys!

Today’s post is a true story from a lady I know to have battled a lot of problems in her life to stay at the top. She’s a business woman and an influence to other women around her. Guys this is Mrs. Gloria Obi During’s story.

Her story is filled with inspiration and motivation. You see, in this life you either face the battle and be strong when doing that, or life beats you down when you feel sorry for yourself. Life is not fair and it will never be fair, we only have the grace of God and our inner mind to fight life battles each day of our lives.

Please the post is kinda long but you get to learn one or two things from here. So be patient!

I woke up today feeling exceptionally grateful for the turns my life has taken in the past one year. A lot of change can happen in a minute, a lot in an hour, then imagine how much can happen in a year. Over a year ago, my family and i moved to Lagos. That was one of, if not the biggest decisions of my life. I went to Lagos with a lot of hope; hope to have a more eventful life, to get a good job, hope that life will have that major turn that’ll change things for good…etc. But i got to Lagos and became a depressed young girl. No friends to visit or even visit me, even the ones around, traffic won’t let you. Sent out appications, till i had the picture of my cv memorized in my brain, with no response. The business i had always wanted to do required a lot of funds to start, at least at a very good but minimal standard. I got tired!

Some days, all i do is cry and whine, other days i just want to close my eyes and disappear. Traffic in Lagos didnt even help my situation as Perry (her husband) was out of the house most of the day so nobody to talk to so much. I felt so depressed and tired so much so that on my birthday last year, all i did was cry and pray. I cried so much that Perry thought somone had died. I was etremely tired of everything. The thought of getting used to Lagos depressed me the more each passing day. But little did i know that in all my fears and worries, God was preparing me for a better tomorrow. When Perry told me we’d be coming back to Abuja, MY GOD!!! I danced like i have never done. I thanked God every minute of the day and anytime i remember what it was like being in Abuja. One day, around Egbeda b/stop, i went to get something and i saw a bag hanging in a store, iliked it a lot so i went over to get it. As i was there waiting for the lady to answer me, something just told me, ‘Gloria why not start selling these types of bags when you get back to Abuja?’ That was how i got home, patiently waited for Perry to get back so i’d share the idea with him , as my manager that he is. When he came back, i told him and he was OK with it (as always) and that was how my hunt for a supplier started. I combed all the okrika market in Lagos state looking for a trusted supplier of bags but to no avail. Then one lady, who i usually buy clothes from, adviced me to sell clothes since i didnt get a connect for the kind of bags i wanted (God bless you for me Mummy Allen). I got home, thought about it and decided to go for it so i bought a bale of children’s clothes before leaving Lagos.

Today, @obere aego is barely 6months and we have grown. Grown beyond how i imagined we would within the time and all i can say is, Lord i am grateful. The past year wasn’t easy for me, i lost quite a number of people i knew and were really close but God kept me and my family and friends.

Since my church don’t do testimony during Mass, this is my own testimony!

To the real meaning of support, Perry During, I say THANK YOU!

Thank you for listening to me whine.

Thank you for all your support, corrections, encouragement even when you too needed someone to encourage you.

Thank you for being my pillar. The best things i have accomplised in life, i did with you.

Thank you for all you do to make us comfortable.

Thank you for being the best partner, father, brother, brother in-law, son in-law.

Whenever i thank God for my many blessings, seen amd unseen, i thank him for you 10x. You are everything and more and i want you to know that i am eternally grateful. YOU ARE IRREPLACEABLE!!!!

Thank you Gloria for allowing me to share your story to the world. God will keep blessing and guiding you through life in Jesus name.

I guess you enjoyed reading her story. Well I did!!! You are not alone. Keep believing, keep moving forward.

Interview Discussion With Digital Marketer And Entrepreneur “Mrs Uche Anunobi

Some few days back I had the privilege of meeting an old school friend of mine. She’s an extraordinary woman, a wife, a friend and a sister. Through her coaching lectures, she has turned a lot of people’s life around on Instagram and how to build there businesses around the social media platform. Also she has inspired and motivated a lot of people to keep doing what they do best and never give up.

Ladies and Gentlemen please help me to welcome Mrs. Uche Anunobi….

1. Tell us a bit about your background, school and Where were you born?

I was born in Lagos and grew up in Lagos except for when I was in school. I attended Redeemers University for my undergrad studies and did an MBA at the Lagos Business School.

2. How was life growing up?

Growing up was great for me because I got to see both my parents work really hard to ensure we were comfortable. They showed us love and encouraged us to be better always.

3. At what age in your life did you decide you wanted to go into entrepreneurship and a digital marketing coach?

I decided to become an entrepreneur after 3 years of working in an audit firm. The firm was a great one and I learnt a lot about how businesses operate but had zero experience and very little confidence that I could run one myself. That was when I decided to do an MBA to up-level my training. After my MBA, I started testing out my entrepreneurial skills, failing in some and succeeding in some. I’ve also struggled with choosing that one thing that I would love to do for the rest of my life.

4. How do you cope running a fast growing digital marketing platform?

At first, I thought it was crazy and put myself under a lot of unnecessary pressure. But now, I have learnt that there are timeless principles that always work regardless of the changing digital environment and I’ve dedicated myself to learning those principles. That way, I feel less pressured keeping up with the ever changing platform. I embrace the change better and educate other to do same.

5. Is being an entrepreneur a burden or a blessing or a bit of both?

It is more of a blessing than a burden. Entrepreneurship teaches you many things: how to be kind to everyone (customer service), how to plan yourself better because you’d be juggling so many things at the same time, how to motivate yourself because there’ll be no boss to motivate you, the importance of having a coach and trust me, having a coach is everything.

6. What challenged have you had to as a digital marketing coach and entrepreneur?

The most challenging for me is getting people to implement the great things that would move their business forward. People love and understand what I’m telling them to do but get lazy to do the work even though they know it will make all the difference. I guess that’s why coaches like to work with high performance individuals.

7. In your opinion, what is the most difficult part about your line of work?

Ensuring that clients don’t give up when the going gets tough because the entrepreneurial path is not all roses and sunshine.

8. What’s the weirdest thing your followers has ever told you?

I think I’m lucky not to have had any weird follower yet..lol

9. Your business confident is so bold, do you sometimes have the fear of the unknown?

All the freaking time! This is a daily struggle, the only thing is, I don’t let it stop me, not anymore.

10. Which other professional are you looking to work with or have something coming out with?

I so look forward to working with Tara Durotoye, Tricia (Triciabiz), Nelly (Naijabrandchick), Steve Harris, Bankole Williams, Stephanie Obi and Tomie Balogun. I love these great men and women because they inspire me every day. And what’s even more exciting is that they are all Nigerians who started thinking big as youths.

11. If you had a chance to work with one person in the world, who would it be?

Tara Durotoye

12. What are your top 3 points in your note or pad that you always reflect on?

How to be a better version of me

How to impact lives positively

How to run my business better

13. Aside the unemployment nature of the country, what drove you to switch from a graduate to a digital marketing coach?

Unemployment didn’t drive me to switch. I chose to switch because I wanted to impact lives in a way that I couldn’t with my paid employment.

14. What advice would you give to unmotivated and non-inspired people around the world. Please explain???

I’d advise them to first acknowledge that they have a challenge of being unmotivated and uninspired. Acknowledging is the first step towards a turn around. Next, they can start to read great books, start working on their business ideas, surround themselves with great people and get a coach.

15. What’s next for Uche Anunobi?

I’m working on developing an online course that would help entrepreneurs kick start and grow their businesses online. I’m also working on my book to open people’s eyes to see how they can take advantage of the online space. These alongside my free weekly live videos on my Instagram page @uche.anunobi will help to grow a tribe of intentionally successful young Nigerian entrepreneur.

We appreciate your contribution and advise for unmotivated people around. We wish you well in all your future endeavours.
