When asked her advice for young people, she said,
…they have to find what they are good at, their talent; work hard on your talent, be patient, because for you to succeed in life, you need patience which a lot of people don’t have … They also have to be very prayerful
Talking about the cause of failure in many ventures, Linda Ikeji said that,
If you are impatient and not good at what you do, you will surely fail! Mediocre will always fail because they only come into business to make money and if after a year they are unable to make it, they are set to fail.
She was asked what makes a successful blogger and she said,
You have to love blogging … be passionate about it, be consistent, don’t blog once or twice in a week, blog everyday if you can, enjoy it, and love it. Don’t be anonymous when it comes to blogging. People find it easy to relate more to people they know … So, find what you can do easily and you enjoy doing. That was what I did for the first four years that I started the blog before I began to make money.
