Khadija Usman Bio
I am a serial Entrepreneur and a Community builder with a decade's, on ground experience, in 'Entrepreneurship'.
My own struggles, as an Entrepreneur led me to create an all, working women's Community - Fempreneur. Through the Community, I have mentored many small business owners. We now have a website with:
-Women Freelancers Directory
-Women Entrepreneurs Directory
-An all-women's job portal (for recruiters & job seekers)
Fempreneur's journey led me to initiate Grit Coaches & Consultants; stemming out of the desire to do more, to serve - not only women running businesses but people at large; through the wonderful self- development tool called 'Coaching'.
My journey in trying to set-up a Marketplace for Coaches & Consultants, has had it's fair share of challenges.
But what I envision one day, as an outcome of my efforts, is to create a Platform that:
✔ Helps Coaches & Consultants get clients.
✔ Helps Solopreneurs/Startup Entrepreneurs get relevant Coaching.
✔ Helps the Youth to be better equipped to deal with real life challenges.
✔ Helping Organizations to develop its people, increasing employee satisfaction without
✔ Helps people to become better versions of themselves.
Coming back to what I and my team began with - our brand Mummy & Me, stemming out of the need to provide quality Loungewear/Sleepwear for Mom & Kids after getting extensive market research done. It was created as a sub-brand of Firstsmile (kids online clothing store), of which I am the Creative Director - Its vision is to create 'ease' for Mom's so, they can get just the product they want, at a click.
So each of our ventures is backed by Market Research - with the strong values of Trust, Inclusion, Diversity and Contribution.
If I can make even a little difference, if 'only one life lives better', because of these efforts. It's all worth the weight in gold for me.
