SBLs001: Soji’s Business Lessons Podcast Episode 1

Episode 1 – Kimberly George: Founder – Small Business Sense Blog


I am delighted to bring you the very first edition of my podcast.  Am I excited?  That’s an understatement. It is finally here.

I have had a lot of help from a lot of people to pull this off.  I could not have done it without your help.  I will not mention any names, but I am eternally grateful to all those who helped put this together.

I will be bringing you a new episode every Friday.  Please keep an eye out for future episodes.

In this premiere edition of “Soji’s Business Lessons” I speak with Kimberly George, founder of the Small Business Sense blog which is a resource site for small businesses and entrepreneurs that covers trending information in entrepreneurship and small business. In this episode Kimberly talks about the lessons she has learned while working as an entrepreneur in the technology field. She gives notable insight on the significance of doing due diligence as a business owner as well as the importance of preparation when taking on new projects. Kimberly also shares an invaluable piece of advice on finding ways to approach marketing or other areas of the business that may be a significant challenge, with the help of a network.

In this episode you will learn about:

  • The importance of doing due diligence when starting a project.
  • The importance of having the right team.
  • What is an accountability group and how to use one to your advantage.
  • The benefit of Feedly – a news aggregator application that organises your news feed across all internet sources.

Soji Fagade

Hi, I’m Soji Fagade. I am an entrepreneur and I just love everything (well almost everything) about business. In terms of formal education, I earned bachelors degrees in Sociology and Law. I practiced as a solicitor for a while, but I have always been involved in business. While in University a friend and I ran a business that manufactured hand crafted door name plaques and wooden children's toys. In the early stages of my legal career with Harkavys - a London firm of solicitors, I walked away to run Sabo Foods – an exotic foods wholesale packaging and distribution business that I had founded a few years prior with my dear friend Goke. Together, Goke and I grew Sabo Foods into a thriving household name and brand within the industry. That business consistently generated millions of pounds in revenue for years. This accomplishment of starting a business from the ground up and turning it into a success that remained operational for nearly twenty years was not without its challenges, many of which we overcame through dedication, passion and simple trial and error. Along the way I have provided business development and consultancy services to many small business owners who were stuck or simply uncertain what the next move should be. Through business coaching, strategic product development and team building exercises, I have successfully helped small businesses launch products and services, move forward with purpose toward brighter and more profitable futures.
