20 Ridiculously Relatable Memes For Computer Village Business Owners

20 Ridiculously Relatable Memes For Computer Village Business Owners

Being a Computer Village business owner is like being cast in an episode of "Fuji House of Commotion." It is a whirlwind of activity; even looking down at Otigba Crescent from your shop window can make you breathless. It is never a dull moment, from the hustling boys who bring potential customers and act like the shop owner to negotiating with customers who can barely speak Pidgin English.

I recently met up with my childhood friend Izu, who recently visited Nigeria from Canada. When we started our careers, he had a used electronics store in Computer Village, and I handled his official social media accounts. Naturally, during our conversation, we spoke about the good old days, which inspired this article.

So, to look at the lighter side of this journey, we have put together funny, relatable memes that capture the essence of life as Computer Village vendors. We really hope they make you smile!

Let's Gooooo GIF

The journey of running a business in Computer Village (or anywhere else for that matter) is much like a rollercoaster. New business owners often feel overwhelmed by the rapid twists and turns, from managing inventory to dealing with customer complaints. In contrast, seasoned business owners have learned to embrace the ride, taking each challenge in stride and enjoying the journey. If you are the scared, shocked rider right now, remember that every experienced business owner started where you are. 😉

Many Computer Village business owners started their journey from a regular 9-5 job, lured by the prospect of freedom and the potential for greater financial rewards. However, the reality of entrepreneurship is far more challenging than many anticipate. The desire to start your own business is a powerful motivator. If you're in a 9-5 job dreaming of entrepreneurship, remember that it requires hard work, resilience, and adaptability. Plan carefully, learn continuously, and take calculated risks.

As a Computer Village business owner, you often play multiple roles—manager, accountant, marketer, and more. On days when everything seems to go wrong, even a simple Excel error can feel like the last straw. Remember, it is okay to have tough days. Each hat you wear is a testament to your versatility and dedication. When faced with technical frustrations, take a deep breath, step back, and tackle the problem one step at a time.

13. Stability vs Business Ownership

Many Computer Village business owners have faced the difficult decision of leaving the stability of a 9-5 job for the unpredictable and demanding life of entrepreneurship. I totally understand the internal struggle between the comfort of a steady paycheck and the dream of owning and running your own business. Making the leap from a 9-5 job to becoming a full-time business owner is a courageous decision. Both paths have their challenges, but the rewards of entrepreneurship can make it worth the hard work and long hours. Trust your instincts and remember that the journey is part of the adventure.

The first year of running your business often requires significant financial sacrifices. Extravagant personal celebrations take a back seat as you invest time and money into growing your enterprise. While the celebrations might be small now, they signify the beginning of greater successes ahead. Keep pushing forward, and soon you will have even more reasons to celebrate in grander ways.

16. The Waiting Game

Every business owner knows the feeling of sending account details to potential customers and anxiously waiting for confirmation of payment. It is a nerve-wracking experience, especially when there is radio silence on the other end. Don't let the waiting game get you down. While it is frustrating not to hear back immediately, remember that patience is key in business.

17. The Passionate Business Owner

Business owners pour their heart and soul into their ventures, facing countless challenges and sacrifices along the way. It can be frustrating when others fail to grasp the dedication and hard work required to run a successful business. While it's frustrating when others don't understand the complexities of running a business, take pride in your passion and commitment. Keep focusing on your goals, and let your success be the ultimate response to those who doubt your abilities.

18. Money For Hand...

20. It Will All Be Worth It in the End


As a Computer Village business owner, you encounter obstacles and setbacks on your entrepreneurial journey. However, as a steeze filled person, maintain 100% composure and unwavering belief that your hard work and dedication will pay off in the end. Keep smiling knowing that every challenge you overcome brings you one step closer to your goals.
