Charmacy is one of the most prestigious careers every parent would want their ward to pursue no doubt.
To think that a trained pharmacist would drop all the learning of that profession for the garb of a cook is quite unthinkable. But that is the case with Oluyemi Ogedengbe.
Oluyemi Ogedengbe became popular recently, when a video which had renowned Lagos Pastor, Tunde Bakare, preach on using your talent to succeed in life went viral on the internet. In it, the cleric among others, mentioned – ‘Yemi Ogedengbe’ as a trained pharmacist turned successful Caterer following her deepest passion.
Interestingly, Oluyemi Ogedengbe is the founder of Double Delicious Catering Services. A fast rising brand established, July, 2009.
According to her, she started out in what seems like a flourishing career as a Pharmacist. Worked for a while as a medical representative in a pharmaceutical company. Afterwards, began running her own retail pharmacy for about 10years only to discover that she was not being fulfilled and could not make a success of it.
Narrating further, She explained. “Sincerely, I did not find that inner fulfillment while working as a pharmacist. I had to put a pause on everything to seek God in prayers for direction for what to do next.
Surprisingly, in a dream, God showed me how big catering could be for me if I followed that path. However, prior to that time I had my hands in catering and was busy engaging in it at a small scale for my church simply because I loved to cook. She discloses.”
The Catering expert said while still in her dilemma, she got inspired severally by Pastor Tunde Bakare’s timely messages. One of which is that God prospers through the work of our hands and would use those talents that are deposited in us.
