1- Hello, Daniel can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Well, I am a young entrepreneur and sometimes I like to believe I am also a forward-thinking individual.
At the age of 19, I started off as a creative designer and over the years I have grown to become a developer, blogger, vlogger, content creator and business strategy consultant.
Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, I had the hustle spirit in me from the get-go. Always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur from when I was a kid because I grew up knowing my father to be self-employed, and when I moved to my Grandmother’s place, she also had one or two things under her sleeve, so the idea of a 9-5 didn’t just make sense to me.
I love music a lot. I love dancing as well (I sometimes believe am the best dancer in the whole world) and I enjoy making people laugh. Who knows, I might end up being a comedian.
I am a very happy person and I believe in using my expertise, experience and exposure to better people and businesses around the world.

2- What are your focus areas and why?
My main focus area is design – Digital and Web design. Knowing that my design can help build a business from scratch and give them a brand identity or re-brand a business to a profitable position within its industry makes me happy and makes me want to be the best designer and provide the best designs for businesses and individuals, I basically want to use my designs to give businesses an aesthetically pleasing image.
I also love the business strategy space as well, it’s a new phase for me as I just rounded my Masters in Business Information Systems Management in London and during the course, the idea that strategies, systems and frameworks can be used to add value to businesses lit a fire in me which has made the business strategy and management area an interesting one for me.

3- How do you describe “Presidential Ideas” in few words?
In few words, I’ll say Presidential Ideas is my baby. It is my first business and my current business that places me as a person in a position to achieve my mission; which is to use my expertise, experience and exposure to help better businesses and individuals by giving them an aesthetically pleasing image.

4- Where do you think you are making an impact?
I’ll say in the Small to Medium sized business space because the SME space is often times overlooked because of their inability to pay premium prices but require premium designs / services. So, I give SMEs Trump quality designs at Walmart price and with the feedback and messages I get from my SME clients, I think am making an impact in their lives and business.

5- What are some things that most people don’t know about your job as a brand developer?
One of the things I think people don’t know is – I work with different brands and businesses and for me to be their official brand developer, I always have to know their business and industry like the back of my palm. That means being up to speed with changes and evolution in multiple business environment and making each client feel like I only breath and eat their business.

6- Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Within the next 5 years, Daniel Damilola Nejo would be an household name. Known not only for the impact in the industry as a successful entrepreneur but also as a name that resonates with positivity, self-awareness, self-belief, confidence, happiness and congruence .

7- What were some of the biggest challenges you encountered while working on “Presidential Ideas”?
The first challenge was deciding to stick with the name ‘Presidential Ideas’ or not. You see, I started Presidential Ideas on my grandmother’s dining table in Nigeria and my aim was to be in Nigeria but work for clients across the globe – a thing doesn’t happen frequently in Nigeria.
And because of the Nigerian Fraudster Stereotype, I faced some dis-belief from potential clients in the UK and US but I didn’t give up or let that hold me back, I always knew the people that will appreciate my skills and offerings will come in due time and within a year I became a sort after Nigerian creative designer for businesses and individuals around the world.

8- What can you tell to young entrepreneurs?
Have a hustle. Have the end picture in mind and keep at it.

9- What are you most excited about at the moment?
Am currently creating an online course called ‘The Puzzle Hustle’ which will be released early this year. It’s a course am creating to share how I moved my business from my grandmother’s dining table in one year to London where I am able to self-fund my Masters and also live in one of the most expensive cities in the world. I will not only share but also share how anyone from a developing country like Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe or any other place can do the same.

10- The last word or final thoughts?
Thanks for taking time out to interview me. I really appreciate you and what you do. Am pumped and always will be. Stay blessed.
