Being an Entrepreneur gives me Freedom, and that is Key to Living Well- Solomon Elohor Abe



INTRODUCTION
My name is Solomon Elohor Abe, I am from Delta State, a graduate of Law from the University of The Gambia, and called to the Nigerian Bar (specializing in Corporate, Property and Alternative Dispute Resolution). I am also a Photographer, Graphic Designer, Business/Media Consultant.
HOW IT STARTED
FACES is a photo-series geared at capturing the beauty of Warri. Not Warri as a geographical location but the people its made up of. The idea of FACES was borne from my love for the city and my vision to showcase Warri to the world.

FOR HOW LONG
Phase 1 of the project has been on for about 6 months now and we there will be subsequent phases.



FUNDING
Funds weren’t required at the initial phase of the Project, all we needed was to get people interested in the Project and then they came over to get their FACES picture taken, then the pictures are featured on our FACES Instagram handle @the_project_faces. The Project officially started around June, 2016.
OTHER THINGS YOU DO
Besides being a Photographer, I am also a Corporate Lawyer. Its hard but I do both fulltime, impossible is nothing.

YOUR FEAR AND HOW YOU OVERCOME IT
My greatest fear was people not showing up, but the turn out has been really great. people told their friends and family about it and they turned up for it. And some people have said it gave them sense of belonging, being part of a ‘WARRI’ project. And feedbacks like that motivates me to do more.
PASSION
I care about putting my city Warri on the world map. And I am doing my own bit through photography and encouraging other people like myself to do the same.
DEFINE SUCCESS
Success is doing what you love and making a positive impact with it.


MENTORS/INFLUENCERS
God, my father and every man and woman working hard to make a better living.
WHEN THINGS DIDN'T GO THE WAY YOU WANTED
Can't remember any.



LIFE AS AN ENTREPRENEUR
Being an entrepreneur gives me freedom, and that is key to living well. It allows me manage my time, I can do whatever I want whenever I want to. I am a spontaneous person, I do not like being constrained or restricted, so being an entrepreneur works perfect for me.

TOP 3 SKILLS NEEDED BY AN ENTREPRENEUR
  • Hardwork,
  • Diligence,
  •  persistence and
  • some more persistence (sorry i know you said three)
GOALS
Living fulfilled...
FINAL WORDS TO THE WANNABE-PRENUER, STARTER-PRENEUR AND ENTREPRENEUR.
Don't be in a rush to leave school, get your education, make good grades and the you can jump into real life. When you eventually do, you have to be ready to put in the work and also be diligent. Diligence is key to succeed, Proverbs said; "Seeth thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men".
