Teni Adesanya is a Nigerian serial entrepreneur who has seen the worse days in his quest for business success in a terrain like Nigeria, where the odds are stacked against you.
As the saying goes, the best person to seek advice from before embarking on a journey is someone who has walked the path or someone who is still on that trip but has covered a significant distance. Adesanya has earned the right to be a business mentor.

In the video above, excerpted from his interview with Business Elites Africa, he mentioned the two most important things an entrepreneur needs to be successful in business.
