"I'm Tailone Taylor Chiyangwa"
My academic background is in Social Sciences but I ended up leaving that and venturing into the online world. After I graduated I got a job that was distantly related to my education but I had to take it just so that I could pay the bills and get some food on the table.
I terribly hated that job and felt constrained and stifled daily. I felt I wasn’t growing as a person in that job and that led me to start looking at other alternatives of earning income.
I have always had an interest in online entrepreneurship since I had been introduced to a computer 20 years ago. So during the weekends and evenings, I started researching ways of earning income online.
I watched videos on Youtube, sought out mentors, both local and international, and looked for books in my quest to quit my job and do something much better. I was convinced that my fortune lay online and it was just a matter of time before I became an online entrepreneur.
I started setting up my first online business on a part-time basis while I worked my dreary job. I saw signs of progress and then decided to take the leap. I quit my job in December 2016 during a time where the bulk of the people were desperately looking for jobs.
A lot of people around me thought I was delusional and I would regret such a drastic move but I am happy to say it has turned out to be the complete opposite.

I’m now a business owner and I enjoy it immensely. It does not even feel like work! I have also managed to create employment opportunities for a few guys (both fulltime and some freelancers). This makes me very proud especially looking at where I’m coming from.
I have gone one to learn a lot of stuff on digital marketing and online entrepreneurship by myself. I am now a Google certified digital marketing specialist and I train business owners on how they can use digital channels to grow their business.
I also mentor people who are interested in setting up their own online businesses. (If you have any question you can ask on my Ask Me Anything page and I will be more than glad to assist you.)
You can learn and get these certifications for FREE as well. Check out these posts where I explain more.
I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts and comments on my story below!
