WHO THE HELL IS OLADIPUPO AJIBOLA?
Hey, awesome you, glad to e-meet you.
My name Is Oladipuupo Ajibola but dipo will do just fine. I am a 20 year old writer, entrepreneur and creator of dipsentrepreneurship.com
Why did I create this blog?
I created this blog because most advice I get out there either suck or are boring, so I decided to change that. I offer what I believe to be a better and truer answer to the questions we all ask our self about business and entrepreneurship.
Who am i?
I am just a regular and trustworthy person, I have my credentials to back that but I won’t be displaying them here for personal reasons.
I have a degree in entrepreneurial studies (well soon to have!). I’ve always wanted to be an economist but as life would have it I got admitted into college and was offered entrepreneurship as a course based on my past records and achievements.
I’m settled now in my own apartment working on my first book titled ‘’life of an entrepreneur’’ and you’re probably gonna get it here first in form of an e-book for free! Before going public (don’t tell anyone), the book portrays what the life of an entrepreneur entails.
What do I like to do?
I like to draw, paint and think way out of the box. I also enjoy drinking Smirnoff, playing video games, inspirational books, jogging and watching the sunrise.

I DREAM, I ACT, I FEEL AND I EXPERIMENT
I’m a student, writer and entrepreneur hell bent on living a life that reflects my personality. I am a creative person who creates all around my world from writing to painting to designing. I brainstorm day in day out in order to share my ideals to the world.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN…
I miss those days where the hardest decision in life was choosing which colour of crayon to use for my paintings. Those were the good old days for everyone and as long as I can remember, I’ve always hard two things with me, a dream and a hope to change the world with a pen and a book.
From jotting down dreams to sketching ideas because unlike most people, I don’t think in words instead I think in pictures and I try as much as possible to portray it just the way I see it to make it a reality.
At the age of 11 I started writing songs and stories about everything that was happening around me and my journal as at that time was full to the brim. At 16 when I got admitted to college, everything changed, I began to see life from a whole new perspective and I realised I needed to give more than I take.
I knew I had to do something in life, something pertaining to writing and I kept on saying to myself ‘’if it is to be, it is up to me’’ so I set out in early 2013 and decided to live the life of my dreams, I bought a one way ticket and I’ve had no reason to look back since then.
There’s a feeling you get from being of service to the people around you and that is exactly what I feel now. That feeling of inner peace that comes with knowing you are M.A.D (making a difference).
DIPO AND DAN
WHERE AND WHEN WE MET…
It was on February 25 2014 in business school on the day of exams for that semester. There was a particular question that got me everywhere and nowhere, for some reason or the other I just couldn’t decipher what the question really meant, we were asked to define ‘’an entrepreneur in relation to entrepreneurship.’’
Daniel of course noticed I wasn’t comfortable so he deciding to reach out knowing fully well that he was at risk of losing his studentship if caught. This was the conversation that proceeded.
DAN: Dude, write something
DIPO: I would if I knew the answer
DAN: think of what I’m doing now
DIPO: yeah, you’re trying to get us expelled.
DAN: No, I’m taking a risk that. One of two things could happen. We work together and we pass or we don’t and we fail.
DIPO: you forgot to mention the last one. If we get caught we lose it all
DAN: isn’t that what entrepreneurship is all about. Where others see obstacles we see opportunity. Not knowing whether we will fail or succeed, as an entrepreneur risk is everything, the downfall and rise of an empire and if we go down at least we tried.
I later went on to write two pages after this conversation have in mind that we were whispering all through. Call it cheating if you like, but that there my friend was the turning point, an initiative to a shot at a better future.
HOW WE MET…
We might have met at the examination hall but that’s not ‘’how we met’’. I never saw Daniel again until after 4 months in the summer of 2014. I ran into him and yet another life changing initiative transpired. This was the conversation that proceeded.
DAN: Hey, long time
DIPO: yeah, so where do you assume we start from I mean we know all of this great stuff about entrepreneurship since that’s our major but I see no possibility in it ever helping me drive a G Wagon.
DAN: if you don’t make known what you know, how is the world gonna know what you know. The key to entrepreneurship is in knowing a little bit more than your customers and then offering it to them at a price.
DIPO: in the land of a blind, a one eyed man is king right? So how are we gonna find a group of blind people to lead them with our one eye.
DAN: easy, we make them know……we write!!!
I think you can pretty much guess what happened after then.
ABOUT THE BLOG
Uhmmm So it’s a little awkward when I’m asked about dipsentrepreneurship because I stammer each time I’m asked what it is or what I do.
To me it’s undefinable and unexpressable. So I decided to ask around an here’s what I got
‘’dipsentreprenrship is all about innovation and entrepreneurship’’
‘’it’s a platform where wanna-be entrepreneurs can gain enlightenment and thereafter take a stance as an entrepreneur’’
“It’s a blog that breathes life into entrepreneurs and individuals alike’’
‘’what you do is more than writing, it’s more about being a reference of change”
‘’it’s a learning citadel for everyone who wishes to venture into business and bolster in his/her entrepreneurial career’’
‘’its life embedded within a blog”
‘’one thing I’ve learnt from this blog is that, without risk as humans all we can be is noithing and an entrepreneur is the definition of a risk bearer and risk taker”
Dipsentrepreneurship launched on the 1st day of May 2016 with 40 posts. it was started by two individuals dipo and dan with the hope of making a difference by giving back to the world.
