Ann Nwogu is a savvy entrepreneur whose love for candy lured her into the world of entrepreneurship. Dealing in all shapes and sizes of candies and parties, ranging from one year old birthdays to corporate gigs, Ann followed her heart (and her taste buds) and took the leap from a 9-5 with steady income to creating CANDYBYTE and living her dreams of making the world a sweeter place, in her own way.
CandyByte was born out of my obsession with sweets!- Ann Nwogu
Who is Ann Nwogu (What is your full name, background etc)?
What inspired the decision to leave the security of a steady job to the uncertainty of entrepreneurship?
My inspiration? Financial independence, watching successful women do big things, and the love of candy. I left my job knowing Nigeria was heading into a recession. Scary? Yes. But I have a great team of friends around me and that’s important, if you want to not only dream big, but do big.
