First of All…

First of All…


Preparing for an interview some time ago, I started listing out potential questions that could be asked during the session, in doing this exercise, one question kept popping up in my mind, I was somehow 100% sure this question would be asked but at this point, I didn’t seem to have a suitable answer for it

Why the shift from Mechanical Engineering?

This was not the first time coming across this question, it came up some years earlier when I started mobile development while in the University(a mech student doing web/mobile programming at that time was a little off), people were mostly asking what I was doing with programming related stuff, in time and with increasing frequency of getting these questions, I started giving them a very suitable and increasingly refined answers

Person: Why the shift from…

Me: “The world is going digital, I have to align myself”; “Innovation is moving from hardware to software” e.t.c

(Following the universal rule)

For for this particular interview, however, I found it hard to apply my initially well-refined answers, the role I was applying for was a more drastic shift than merely switching “engineering disciplines”.  To answer this question, I prayed, researched e.t.c (yes o, on-top interview, your boy needed that job).

When the eureka moment eventually came, The realizations I came to transformed clear some questions I wasn’t even asking, I began to rethink about the way I see myself,  the way I do things e.t.c Some of these things are actually a big part of why I am starting this blog.

What was the answer?  Just a minute 😀

This blog is meant to primarily be a space to do a few things, some of which are( but are not limited to, This is important before someone comes to sue me on-top blog 😛 )

  • Share new stuff I think you will find useful
  • Demystify some confusing concepts, especially ones I find hard to grasp myself
  • Sharing research, personal learnings, thoughts, viewpoints
  • Building competencies
  • Expressing my creativity – I consider myself some sort of a creative, I am looking forward to this bit
  • and more………..

Everything coming on here is as much for the readers as it will be my growth or improvement , so you can be sure I am well invested in sharing useful stuff, I will, however, try my best to make content readable, simple and will definitely appreciate your engagement, suggestions, contributions as I look forward to fruitful discussions.

Solutions – I found that this was the line between what I was passionate about, my course of study, education journey, career path, business pursuits, “dreams”. Simply creating and building solutions.

I love solutions

It’s clear that has been no actual “shift from mechanical engineering”, The aim is always to be empowered to solve more challenging problems


At this moment, I am particularly interested in Education, Technology, Energy, Design, Business & social impact; these interests will definitely reflect in posts on here.

In as much as I have gotten an answer to an important question now, there are however so many other questions I want to be able to answer, this blog is being set up to share this journey with you, hopefully in the process I answer some of yours too.


Yours in Learning,

    Mr. Oloriade, you are simply synonymous with greatness.

    From our undergraduate days in Uni, when you were a mech student constantly coding in our room and being the great pastor that you are, also providing guidance for the young believers and spiritual leaders (Pastor Ifektive Babs, I am looking at you), you have always displayed greatness.🙌

    Over the last couple of years, you have slowly evolved into a superb financial services provider and now we are blogging!!! 😁

    Keep kinging bro, you are destined for greatness! ✊
