inspitories ii: gidilounge

Inspitories is my made up word for inspirational stories on young people I find interesting. They are usually interviews of other Entrepreneurs like myself whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, stumbled upon online or dug up that motivate me. Enjoy and get inspired!

The world is now a global village. Individuals are on the web with the help of blogs and social networking sites like WordPress, Facebook and MySpace. Every company is in the dot-com age with websites, blogs, twitter accounts, facebook pages etc. There are even dot-com companies that exist only on the internet!

People now spend so much time on the internet these days, it is absolutely ridiculous! They spend hours working non-stop online with no way of letting off some steam. Some people saw that void and sort to fill it. A number of thinkers have tried and succeeded in making internet “lodging” more comfortable and fun. We have sites for writing journals, music videos, news, tv shows, games, social networking, music and even movies! Websites like Blogger, YouTube, Reuters, SurfTheChannel, Y!Games, MySpace, Imeem and DVX.

Innovators like a young man who not only is a partner, Southpaw Group, a company that designs and maintains websites for a number of clients, but also runs an interactive website targeted and specifically designed for the entertainment of a particular demographic. This website is Gidilounge. Gidilounge.com has gone from just a music website to interactive and more user friendly website with news from the worlds of sports, fashion & entertainment; and event ads & reviews, and it is all exclusive to the Nigerian public!

    I met this young man a few years ago, before all of this, and he left a solid impression. He was bold, ambitious, yet calm and very respectful.
    He knew where he wanted to go, and was going to get there no matter what.
    I saw him again a few months ago, and he had done all he set out to do and more.
    I have tonnes of respect for him.
    Keep doing your thing my brother. Stay blessed!!!
