Name: Fola Sade Popoola

Business: Total Woman Network 

Location: London, United Kingdom

Industry: Media & Publishing 

Reason for starting? My business started as a passion to empower other women. I started with myself by writing a book about my life, experiences and where I am now. I grew up confused, which played a great part in the dysfunctions of my life both spiritually and physically. This dysfunctionality started me on a search to find myself, know my purpose and led me to want to help other women who might be facing what I faced. This brought me to start the Total Woman Network and write the book, Be The Total Woman You Are : Living Your Purpose In Full Totality. 

How do you define success? My definition of success is when the people you help are empowered to do even better than you. When they are able to stand, take a look at where they started to where they are now and be encouraged to help others. In my business it will be the woman who hears my story, can relate to me and debunks all the lies to march forward in her purpose.

Biggest success: Since my business is new, it does not have a lot to boast about, but my biggest success to date are the people who I have mentored and who have decided to face their purpose with my help and are successful in their chosen field. They are two young entrepreneurs between the ages 19 and 22. One being a professional photographer and the other a luxury fashion designer.

What is your top challenge and how you have addressed it? My top challenge is marketing my book as a brand.

Who is your most important role model? My most important role models unfortunately have passed away, but they are Pastor Olabisi Obideyi and Dr. Myles Munroe.
