We are back with the concluding episodes to Flashlight Moments in the Dark series. Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to Mojisola Obazuaye or as she by her business name, MojiInTouch.
I first noticed Moji for her fashion style, what kept me interested was her consistency. In fact I think her picture should be next to the word consistency in the dictionary. It amazes me and I simply admire it. However I know that as creatives, there are always times when we “don’t feel like it.” So I reached out to Moji to give us a little insight. I hope you enjoy the interview as I did.
Unoma: Who is Moji Obazuaye?
Mojisola: I am a Fashion Buyer, Blogger, Writer & Social Entrepreneur. I am passionate about helping women look well irrespective of their shape, size, age or budget. I also help clients maximise their online presence by using social media. I am an Amazon Bestselling Author of Use What You Have: How to take your potential to fulfll purpose. I am a Wife and a Mother to 2 boys.
Unoma: In 10 words or less can you create a quote that describes you and your purpose journey?
Moji: “To die empty”
Unoma: What is the driving force in your life?
Moji: For me, it is God first. I am lost without him.
Unoma: How do you balance family, faith and your passion/business?
Moji: God’s promise is when I seek HIM first, every other thing is added unto me. I draw my strength and wisdom from God. Aside the God Factor, I have learnt to map out each day, week and month so I can invest my time wisely and be productive.
Unoma: What was the single most devastating experience/challenge in your life and how did you overcome it?
Moji: I have two. One was the untimely death of my Father. He was at the peak of his life when he died. It was God who saw me through this phase and I am grateful for his Love. Secondly, the lose of my job. Through this dark period, God gave me a new vision, hope and directed me to my purpose in life. Through this experience, God has opened so many doors and opportunities I may not have found if I didn’t go through that phase of life.
Unoma: How do you build confident expectations in your dark moments?
Moji: One of the things I do is get on my knees….. In prayers, I see God move. Other way is that I write (journal) my thoughts, prayers, desires, challenges and victories down as a reminder and assurance of God’s promises.
Unoma: How does your understanding of the future give you hope for the present?
Moji: Even though we can not see the future, my hope is tied to Jesus Christ. All my expectations through him will never be cut short.
Unoma: What does it look like practically for you to “turn to the cross” in your business/ministry.
Moji: There is no other way for me than to turn to the cross, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Unoma: What advice would you give your younger self?
Moji: “Live a little”
Unoma: What can we look forward to from you this year? OR What are you working on?
Moji: 1, I am getting my Masters in Fashion Buying and Management, this is on the top of my goal list this year.
2, I am also working on going on a book tour for my book, “Use What You Have”.
3, I am currently working on mentorship for young adults to be “who they want to be.”
