The on-site practicals during my time at the BusyBee Academy set my foot on the path of event planning. I Started with only coordinating events for people, Now I can boast of planning several social and corporate events across the western part of Nigeria. I was always stuck during the planning stage and both the Academy Principal Mr Tunji and Coach Bisi were always there. Most recently, Coach Bisi gave me the push I needed while planning my first tech event and it was a success! After a free decor training at the Academy in October 2022, Coach told us about the upcoming annual Summit and I registered for it. Since then, my life took a positive turnaround. I HAVE BEEN FLOURISHING since I joined the WELL WATERED GARDEN TRIBE. I went from mostly coordinating events to planning multiple ones in a year. There was a month I had up to 5 paid jobs in a month.. premium clientsssses. Then I met amazing people in the tribe who are always ready to support my business like it is theirs. No competition at all. What’s there not to love about the BusyBee Academy and the WWGT? A big family built of love (God) and thriving in oneness.

My experience in this group has been life-changing. I have grown, learnt, and met amazing people here. I'm not the same girl that joined the Cohort in 2020. I literally went from 0-100 and I'm still learning. I have learnt a lot from the various topics discussed and even the banters here. I like how things are very organic here and everyone just pitches in to help. The love here is palpable and people's desire to grow and excel is so commendable and inspiring. Thank you to all the amazing people here who contribute and give of what they know from time to time. Thank you so much! Thank you Coach Bisi @⁨Busy Bee Events⁩ for creating a community like this and for having an open door policy and for being such a mother who wants her own to fly and excel. I have been blessed by your obedience and kindness. Thank you.
