Welcome to our parentinggist parent of the month , let’s meet our guest…Ma, can we know all about you?
Good day admin, I’m Ifedolapo Fajimi, an agro economist by training. I’m the brand and marketing manager for Grace Aion Farms (an aquaculture SME). Prior this appointment, I have close to a decade of work experience as relationship manager in a commercial bank in Nigeria.
I love to meet people, acquire skills, enlighten and impact what ever knowledge I esteem. I also love to talk expressively, interesting sewist and a bead maker.
I am married to Olatoye for about 10 years now and blessed with 2 girls.
Am so delighted to have you ma as my guest this month
My pleasure ma’am
What’s the excitement of combining the job of a brand and marketing manager with parenthood?
Humn, it’s very interesting, flexible and corroborative.
I mean when compared to the traditional 8-5 schedules we are used to. For the first time in my eight years of parenting, I could take my kids to school, attend open day and other important school occasions, be home to welcome them back from school, etc.
Wao! I never knew I could have this kind of opportunity easily.
It also affords me the luxury and flexibility of planning my activities.
Having more time for the kids, what effects have you noticed in your kids?
1. The kids never liked the fact that I wasn’t always around
2. Each time they get back from school and sensed I was in, you’ll see special jubilation
3. They are closer and discuss more with mummy, etc
When it comes to Selecting a School for your kids, what factors do you consider?
Well, a lot of factors; but basically standard/quality, proximity(elementary school) & value delivered.
Now that the kids are having more fun being with Mummy or rather mummy has more
time for mummy duties, what advice would you give to working mums?
Well, it all depends! No two situations are exactly d same. 1. However, within d peculiarity of ur situation, find time to bond wt d kids and ur partner.
2. Do all to enjoy whatever situation u have @ hand on ur way to ut destination.
3. If u wouldn’t be available to discharge mummy’s duty, get capable hands wt d support of ur partner as much as possible.
Your fish products is loved by many mums, how can we reach you if we need to patronize our fellow parent?
