June 28, 2019

This dream, this passion has totally changed my life. I have been doing what I love for 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,766 hours, 525, 949 minutes and 3, 536, 000 seconds, and I can say for certain, it’s one of the toughest things I have done in my life.

I do not regret the challenges, the anxiety, the near depression state sometimes, the frustrations, the ever increasing bills, the failures, the disappointments, the sleepless nights, and all the hard work put in by my partners, staff and myself, I am just thankful for the strength to do this and the opportunity to chase my dream of building a world class organisation offering world class services.

Everyday is still a battlefield in this journey as I am my greatest critic, but I am determined to succeed and for our next year, I am very optimistic and willing to take on more risks. I am no longer afraid or ashamed of failure because I know obstacles are stepping stones to greatness.

I am so looking forward to our next 365 days, and I implore you to do the same, we are taking over this legal tech space. We plan to do a lot of improvements on our website, add on more products, get a lot of automation done and generally give the best customer service experience you can find anywhere in the world as regards business registrations and other document filing services.

Exceptional customer service is and will remain our focus, as I am more convinced more than ever before that the only advantage a small businesses has over bigger brands in the same space is exceptional service.

Many thanks to all our friends, partners, and everyone who has in one way or the other supported this small business, you make us bee-lieve our dreams are valid.

Cheers to many more bee-utiful years ahead!

Best regards,

Efe Ugboro

CEO, 618 Bees
