Ambassador for for simplifying technology for wealth creation, If you’re ready to embark on an entrepreneurial journey, come join us and uncover the secrets of starting and scaling your own online business.

Before I started blogging (Tech With Gbenga), which originally began as a side project in 2021 as to document my own step-by-step journey towards financial freedom (how i build my empire), I was in charge of managing a digital marketing team for a prominent e-commerce startup. Prior to that, I also managed a tech team for a large-scale e-commerce startup. My area of expertise lies in evaluating and recommending top-of-the-line software solutions that can really enhance your online business.

My Journey

I’d like to share an insight into my exciting journey in the world of technology, blogging, and e-commerce. But before getting into that, I want to share a bit about how I ended up here. It wasn’t an easy journey; it was more like an epic odyssey.

My addiction for technology started when I was a kid. I was that kid that so curious about everything (the world in general) which I realized early that science, art and technology plays a very huge part in how the world works.

I was always eager to know how they worked, why they work, when they work and where they work. I’ll never forget the day my older brother brought home our first desktop computer. It was like a dream come true, the more I learned, the more captivated I became by the intricacies of technology. I had so many mentors I look up too during those period and till date including Dr. Michio Kaku, David J. Malan, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Jack Ma, late Steve Jobs and so many others.

As I grew older, my curiosity turned into a deep passion for all things tech-related. It wasn’t just about playing with gadgets anymore; I wanted to create them. That’s when I made the decision to pursue a career in computer science. After my high school, I took several computer science classes in Harvard and MIT including CS50 A, CS50 B and MIT OpenCourseWare Computer Science Courses. At that time YouTube was also my best friend. After which I got admitted and went to college to study computer science full-time.

However, after completing my academic in computer science, I found myself stuck in a cycle of living paycheck-to-paycheck without a clear direction. That’s when I decided to explore various side hustles, each with its own set of challenges and disappointments.

But among those side hustles, two showed promise – blogging and ecommerce business. Ecommerce was my first step into the world of online business, content marketing, and SEO which was doing well but was really time consuming managing fulfilment and customer request which I felt that not really the financial freedom I was looking for which lead to the shift to blogging.

So, I embarked on a journey into the blogosphere, determined to understand the intricate art of SEO and content creation. It wasn’t a smooth ride; I faced obstacles, made mistakes, and experienced moments of doubt. However, with unwavering effort, I eventually earned my first online income through affiliate marketing.

Yet, challenges continued to arise. I fell into the trap of trusting online “gurus” and investing in expensive courses that I could have learned for free. It was a setback, but it didn’t crush my spirit.

I completely shifted my focus to blogging and that’s when I realized the true complexities of this craft. Blogging wasn’t just about writing; it involved mastering SEO, creating relevant content, growing organically, and forming meaningful connections.

During this time, I met someone who would change my life – my incredible girlfriend, Cynthia. Together, we create content on strategies on how to get financial freedom or build an empire using the internet, exploring topics like affiliate marketing, ecommerce, freelancing etc., and I started earning revenue through affiliate marketing, YouTube videos, and consulting.

In 2021, after a year of relentless work, I reached a major milestone: I quit my job to become a full-time blogger. When I look back, it’s hard to believe how far I’ve come from those early struggles. The journey had its ups and downs, but my unwavering focus and determination carried me forward.

My Journey was an adventure filled with challenges, setbacks, and triumphs. And throughout it all, I never lost sight in the pursuit of my dreams.

My Writing Journey

In addition to my adventures, I also pursue my passion for writing. I strongly believe that knowledge is most valuable when shared, and writing allows me to do just that. Combining my love for technology with storytelling, led me to become the author and publisher of “API Revolution: Navigating the Modern Landscape.

This book delves deep into the realm of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) – the backbone of our interconnected digital world. It explores the transformative effects of APIs on various industries, businesses, and the overall modern tech landscape. If you’re curious about understanding the inner workings of the digital realm, this book serves as your comprehensive guide.
