The Folu Story
Hi! I’m Folu Adetoro, Entrepreneur, Investor, mother, wife and I believe in dreaming big. A warm welcome to my personal site. I appreciate you stopping by to check out my bio and learn more about me.
I was born in Birmingham, England. I grew up with my parents and five siblings in Nigeria. I returned to England in the early 90’s and live in Essex. I am married and have a lovely daughter.
My mission in life is to add value to my world and suffice to say that when I meet people, I believe that by reason of their encounter with me, they should become better in life.
‘My Story And Finding The Better Way’
This year, I made the decision to look for a ‘better way’. A way that would allow me not only to earn good money, but free some time up for me to spend with my family and do the things I enjoyed doing. Since my youth, I’ve had the desire to be a successful Entrepreneur. I was never one for pushing pens. I loved being creative and spent four years at University to get a First Degree in Fine Arts and Education.
I left home in my mid 20’s with the dream of finding my path in life. Like Martin Luther King said, “I have a dream.” Indeed I have a dream, and I’ve never stopped dreaming, dreaming of doing big and great things in life.
I joined the Public Sector but never lost sight of my dream, even though I had no idea how that dream would pan out. I ploughed my way through life with groaning in my heart daily, knowing fully well that I was never cut out for pushing pens. I felt like a square peg in a round hole. I never fitted in the status quo. I always challenged it. I knew there had to be more to life than just waking up in the morning, having some food, going to work, coming back home, watching TV and going to bed.
In my journey of life, I developed a passion for Real Estates. I took a lot of interest in property investment as the market was booming at the time.
About 15 years ago, I was introduced to MLM. I signed up to a few schemes, many of which promised so much, but delivered no results. I often heard stories of the top men earning thousands of pounds with several incentives. I bought into some of these schemes and with the thought process that if you could work hard at it, you will eventually make it. I won’t bore you too much, but the truth was, I did not do well at all. In fact I spent more money buying their products and a lot of my precious time cold calling which is, very labour intensive and expensive too. I encountered rejection after rejection. This knocked off my confidence. After years of going from one scheme to another, I realised that although some people were good at cold calling, it wasn’t my thing.
I kept looking for the right opportunity to come my way. I would spend time on the internet, watching YouTube videos and looking at other online business opportunities. As much as I wanted to believe that direct selling was a way to create passive income and many of these companies had major celebrities endorse their industry, I knew there was something out there for me.
I was a woman in pursuit; in pursuit of the right opportunity for me. By divine providence, in May 2019, I came across Six Figure Mentor. It was an eye opener. I had never seen anything like it before. I knew this was it. I told myself, “Look no further.”
Six Figure Mentor has been a platform to educate myself and acquire the right knowledge to be a successful online marketer.
Maybe like me, you are a person in pursuit of a better life. The question is, “How willing are you to do what it takes?’ How desperate are you for a change?” I hear people say, “Life isn’t fair.” No doubt it isn’t fair.
Life wasn’t fair when Jeff Bezos, an American Entrepreneur burnt the midnight oil in his garage to start his business venture which has now made him one of the richest people in the world. He is the founder and CEO of the e-commerce company, Amazon.
Life wasn’t fair when Bill Gates, an American business magnate dropped out of University to start his own company which became the world’s largest computer software company, Microsoft.
Life wasn’t fair when Warren Buffet wanted to skip college to go directly into business, but was overruled by his father despite displaying an interest in business and investing at a young age. Today, he is considered one of the most successful investors in the world.
My life started turning around when I dared challenge the status quo and refused to conform. I dared to go after my dreams like these successful men. Not only that, I was willing to pay the price for success. I was willing to learn and I became coach-able.
By nature, we humans want more in life. Even the richest of us is like Oliver Twist who is always wanting more. Our levels of craving and passion determine how desperate we are to find answers.
Listen, let me cut to the chase, if you are going to win in the arena of life, you had better stop cutting yourself some slack. If it’s going to be it’s up to you. “Cut me some slack Folu, I’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work,” you may say. Death and life are in the power of the tongue and you will always have what you say. Besides as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
What are you afraid of? Failing again? Listen, Thomas Alva Edison failed 9999 times whilst trying to invent electricity. He got it right the 10000th time. I love some of his quotes:
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’t work. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain ways to succeed is always to try just one more time. Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
The fact that you are on my site right now tells me you have not given up on yourself. I mean, let’s face it, you could be watching your favourite team playing their biggest rival – Man U vs Chelsea. Or you could be spending hours watching a movie. But no. You’re hungry, you’re looking and you’re searching. You know that there is something out there for you and life could be better than what you are currently experiencing right now. But you just don’t know where to start from. Let me help you.
This is not for those who are in search of get rich quick schemes. If you are willing to invest your time and a bit of money, I will help you.
