Steven says he was attracted to entrepreneurship at a young age for the freedom it offered to engage in whatever he wanted. Being a businessman offered him the liberty to venture into different sectors. For instance, choosing to venture into eCommerce was his decision after he saw the potential of the space. He knew that the online industry would be around for a long time, and he had to learn to adapt quickly. Steven is now keen on continuing his dominance in the online space to scale his businesses to create a multi-billion-dollar empire.

The success will follow.”
