So at this point in my life I've decided to start up a Tech-blog - TechbyGerald; to share my IMPOSSIBLE experiences so far while starting a tech company in Nigeria (Sub-Saharan Africa) and hopefully readers can learn one or two things from it. O Shoot! I forgot to properly introduce myself - I'm Gerald Okonkwo founder / CHM (Chief Handyman - my own interpretation of CEO) of iFixng.com (an online platform for hiring and engaging the services of handymen and artisans in Nigeria), I'm the last born child of a family of four boys and a dad (my sweet mom is late sadly; but that's not the topic for today) from Anambra state in Nigeria.
I had my primary school education in Our lady of Apostles private School, Yaba after which I attended the Yaba College of Technology Secondary School for my junior days in secondary school both in Lagos and later proceeded to attend the Cornerstone Int'l School Asaba, Delta State. I attained my Bachelors in Engineering (Computer Engineering) at Madonna University in Nigeria and later went to study a Post graduate Diploma in Project Management at the London Academy Business School.

Entrepreneurship is a very difficult, but yet very simple and interesting venture that has one simple rule - CONSISTENCY, especially in a place like Nigeria where we're saddled with various challenges daily, it's really not Funny trust me, but just be consistent.
Thanks Ya'll for reading and stay tuned for my next post where I'll focus more on; how I started iFixng.com and the challenges I had to face. ☺
