My Story As A Start-up – Charles Dairo, CEO, CKDigital

I'm the founder of CKDigital. Here's my story (short version) CKDIGITAL began as a freelance service for me about 7 years back. It began as a side hustle. I honestly didn't think I had exactly what it required to run an organisation complete time. What I understood perfectly, was that I enjoyed style, and was enthusiastic about it. As long as I was on my laptop computer designing one thing or the other, I was pleased, whether I had consumed or not.I did a 3-month internship at a website design firm, then began working part-time at a church, while developing my 'side service'. Throughout this time, I had actually introduced an easy portfolio site and put the 4 jobs I had actually worked on. These were websites I had done for totally free or at extremely cheap costs. One for my twin sis, one for her friend, one for my friend, one for my church.Little by little, a couple of people started seeing my work. They liked the quality of the styles. Some of these individuals referred me to others, and I started getting more jobs. I likewise found out SEO, and got my site to rank on the first page of Google. More individuals started contacting us. It was exciting! At a point, I couldn't handle the need, so I stopped my job then faced CKDIGITAL full-time. My mum enabled me transform the small shop at her supermarket to my office. CKDIGITAL now had 'Head Office'. I hired my first string member, someone I had actually fulfilled during NYSC.

He didn't understand ways to design sites, but he wanted to learn. I taught him, and we started working together.Fast forward to today: we are presently a team of 18(awesome)people, and have

dealt with over 400 projects.My journey has actually not been simple, however my enthusiasm has kept me going.Now, it's not simply about style; it has to do with assisting individuals be successful-- my staff member, our clients, our friends and fans, and everyone else that we can.I have actually not arrived. Those that know me popular that I'm still hustling to grow the organisation and make it more impactful.We are not where we want

to be, however we are far from where we used to be.Charles Dairo
