“When you walk through that door of success, don’t shut it behind you” – Toke Makinwa shares her Personal Experience

 

Media Personality & Author of the bestseller of “On Becoming“, Toke Makinwa took to her Twitter page this morning to share words of advice to employers who make people work for them for free with the promise of “exposure”. She shared her experience of being made to work for free which made her question her own skill.

Toke asserted that if one has experienced the good fortune of making it through the door, you should make a conscious effort to help that person who is still struggling to make it through.

Read her tweets below:

When you get the chance to help someone do it, remember you got to where you are now because someone also decided to help you. #Payitforward

We preach about supporting ourselves but do we really? Some of us forget that we also started from somewhere and life is a journey

I remember when I started out and how frustrated I got when people made me work for free in the name of paying my dues…

By all means we all must pay out dues but the constant work to get noticed with nothing to support me made me question my skill

I promised myself never to do it to another person, I may not pay you what you are worth but a little something to encourage you I must

No one works for me for free. I have never used the “you know I’ll give you exposure line”, I believe in giving back to encourage at least

When you walk thru that door of success don’t shut it behind you, give someone a chance too. We all need each other

When people ask why I tag/promote people so much even after I pay them I tell them it takes nothing from me, my dream is that we all win.
