We had the good fortune of connecting with Jummai Ghaji and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jummai, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I used to work a 9 to 5 thy could barely pay all my bills and i find myself running to a friend or two for a loan pending my next paycheck. So unfortunately, my friend and i had a little misunderstanding and she said “you are always running to me for money like you didn’t have a husband”.

That hit me hard and i promised myself to step up my game. When covid came and most people lost their jobs, i said to myself this is another reason why i should be self employed/ have a side hustle

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am PMP certified, Scrum master certified, Agilist and i am a bachelors degree holder plus own 2 businesses here in America while i still carry on with mummy and wifey duties.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love my dance fitness with acapella dance fitness, I will also take my friend to Benihana as well as Starbucks. I enjoy staying indoor a lot more though.
