A bit about myself; my name is Bukola Dagiloke. I graduated from the University of the Arts, London College of Communication in 2006. My degrees are in Graphic Design for Communication and Information Design. I'm also an author of an upcoming book "Big Fish Branding" and an international speaker. I use psychology and etymology to enhance my offering as a brand consultant. With a lateral and diagonal thinking abilities I help my clients solve creative problems and provide practical solutions.
What my work as a creative mindset consultant not about is writing your business plan or doing your marketing for you, I can't secure you investment but I can and will ensure sound brand development advice and supply you with cutting edge marketing tools to help you attract your niche clients. I can help you review your pitch and advise you on creative business strategies to help you map out your journey to 7 figure business success.
Entrepreneurship is my thing.
My first business when I was 19 was a fashion accessories brand specialising in importing ethnic jewellery from various cultures around the world. I made a few key mistakes which really kicked off my career as an entrepreneur and I really value the learning curve which I can share with you today.
Mistake number 1
I spent half my student loan on stock with no distribution channels set up .
Mistake number 2
I had a very weak brand name with a fairly decent logo. People were not buying into the brand.
Mistake number 3
I tried to set up my own e-commerce platform to sell our products with no plan to drive traffic to the website. This business failed within the first year.
My next two businesses I set up when I was 23, have been a success for 10 years and counting. Through these businesses in fashion, media and brand development I've had the chance to work with celebrities such as Janice Dickinson, Shola Ama, Dizzee Rascal and other UK urban artist such as Chipmunk, Wretch 32, Bashy and many more. Working on live events, seminars, music videos, training courses with schools, colleges, training providers and the BBC.
The next few businesses I set up in the past couple of years are all on route to becoming 7 figure brands. So I have a bit of experience with building businesses in the creative industries and I know how to monetise your startup and build a 7 figure brand.
