My name is Ifeoluwa Olufunmilola Akanni. I was born 53 years ago in Kano. I hold a Bachelor of Pharmacy and a Master of Public Health degrees from ABU, Zaria and University of Ibadan respectively. Am happily married to Pastor (Barr.) S.A. Akanni. My career of about 30 years have been in both community, clinical and public health settings. And I still practice my professions.
My inspiration in life dates back to reading a plaquè hung on the wall in my house while growing up, ” Only one life ‘t’ll soon be past, only what is done for Christ will last” . I interpret this to mean; what you do for men is done for Christ. Hence, I always long for ways I could positively affect lives.
Though I have been involved in other network marketing companies in the past, but I joined Oriflame because of the principle of being “powered by dreams”.
One of my dreams is to help other people particularly women to get out of poverty and I couldn’t do that on my own but here is Oriflame opportunity saying; _build a network and you’d help change the lives of people.
My journey with Oriflame started in February 2018. As much as I wanted to make money, I also was excited by the fact that the products are organic. Before Oriflame, it was always a BIG deal sourcing safe cosmetic products for me and my family. I would go scan all the ingredients in every product before reluctantly making a choice. So it amounted to much waste of time, energy and often money too.
I have been able to connect people I know into the business opportunity and even people I never knew and wouldn’t have known have become connected through the Ori-network.
Am now a Manager with Oriflame though the journey has had lots of hiccups but I am determined to fulfil my dream to see as many women as possible also fulfil theirs while I also make more money, look Good and have lots of fun. Am happy when I see others happy (I look forward to one of those ‘having fun’ events 😄).
One of my on-going projects is identifying children of college age and assisting them in little ways to get higher education. With Oriflame, I see me able to do that on a large scale. I see myself in no distant time from now become a 7-figure earner with Oriflame and that way, am sure to put back into my community more. It’ll also enable me finance my other business projects.
The team WWF2 has been awesome group of like-minded men and women of beauty. You would think that as independent consultants, people would not look out for one another but rather for themselves. Here I see a team of selfless persons who celebrate one another and are concerned about the progress of one another. Am not so surprised because our leader and boss, Lady Jennifer Nkut Apeji is such a selfless leader and she is pouring out herself into us all.
The team has helped me to be more concerned about building leaders in my team. It has strengthened my resolve to succeed and am determined to go all the way Over the Top
