Can We Meet You?
Of course, I am Idiseye Buseri.People call me ‘Dise’. I am a 400 level Student of the Department of Elect/Elect Engineering at the University Of Lagos. My Provenance is Bayelsa state. Also, I am a professional portrait and lifestyle photographer under the brand name ‘DiseBuseri Photography‘.To me, photography has a longer history in story telling and representation.Practically,it genuinely makes me happy to occupy that double faced space of creating and giving my clients beautiful and exquisite images.To potential customers,you can patronise DiseBuseri Photography at 2 Community Road Pako,Akoka in Lagos.
What ignited the spark in you to venture into this business?
Well,It started out as a hobby. Actually, my plan was to be a fashion blogger but things changed when I fell in love with cameras. So, I convinced my mum to get me a camera and soon after, I discovered my love for photography seemed to be overwhelming and later on, it turned into a business.
Do you intend to go into the business fully after school?
Why not? I am already making adequate preparations for it.
If you had the chance to start all over again, what would you do differently?
I can say without doubt that I am well informed on how things thrive now than before, so I would have marketed differently if I had a good chance to start again.
Are you an adventurous type of person? What’s the most stimulating experience you have ever had in your Entrepreneurial journey?
No, I am not very adventurous.The most stimulating experience was when people beat down the cost of pictures at their disposal and some of them still expected free services.It pushed me to be better at what I do, so that the reasonable ones wouldn’t have to be convinced of the best delivery that are in store for them.In other words,the quality of the pictures would speak for itself.
Who do you look up to in your business industry?
Amazingly, I do not look up to anyone. I set out my goals and do my best to achieve them .
Tell me about a time you had to slog your way to get through tons of work from Class and Business. How did you get through it?
Most times, I try to pick school over business since school is the first in the pecking order at the moment.After graduation,I can then give my undivided attention to business. Of course, I can’t leave aside the fact that I make sacrifices to ensure that my business lingers on too but I try to avoid imbalances that can affect my study.
In one word, to what do you most attribute success?
What piece of advice do you have for budding entrepreneurs?
My candid piece of advice to start ups is that one can never know how something would turn out if one do not try one’s very best.In short,strive to be the best in what you do.
What do you think of Vasiti?
I think it is an amazing platform and I do remember when it just started and seeing it flourish to this extent is quite a rare feat.
