Eromo Egbejule Interviews Ahmad Mukoshy | 22-Year Old TechPreneur Speaks on Developing Yrn.Me, Yarnable and More
Passion and Persistence has been my drive ever since I started business. I have a big desire towards technology and business and it makes me happy every morning that I wake up and every night that I sleep.
How did this all start? Did your education prepare you for this?If you are referring to formal education, then I will say no.
School was really preparing me for something else; to never make mistakes and to know so much of so little (specialization). But I chose to jump into things, make my mistakes early, learn from them and move on and that’s what I do. I dream and wake up with it, (so unlike school).
I am personally active on Yarnable, Twitter, Facebook and Google+, getting to know more people, learn and share with them as well. This is how I am able to grow both my business and myself too.
These url-shortners carry a great power over content sharing, which has been my motivation ever since; to explore and experiment on how this content sharing can be best utilized for social benefits. Thus, my adventure is still on run and I’m enjoying so far.
Well, I believe if there is passion there will be no borders, I love what I do and sincere to myself. Deep in my heart, there are very few things that give me joy compared to a computer, Internet and business.
You were named TechLoy Person of the Year in 2010. What other such awards have come your way?
I was overwhelmed when TechLoy referred to me as the ‘TechPerson of the Year 2010’, I mean I was only 20yrs old and already getting big blog mentions. It was an encouragement and still it is.
Aside Techloy, Y! Naija magazine release of 2012 March also featured me among some other 11 Nigerians as “The New Establishment” driving the future of Nigeria.
I was also on that list and its a pleasure to share that honour alongside you, sire. Now, isn’t Yarnable just another Twitter clone like Gistcaster?
It is to be a forum, a micro-forum to allow users share and discuss on topics like Music, Technology, Business, etc. That is the idea behind it which I sold to a company called MobiQube Nig. Ltd (Abuja).
I was not built to clone twitter.
I sold Yarnable for a couple of thousand dollars, but non-disclosable.
Plan, Code and Launch. (Simple).
Aside technology, I love horse racing and playing chess.
For fellow youngsters aiming to make a name in their chosen fields, what do you advice?
