Viv Oyolu is amazing. There’s no other word for her! Creator and host of Dream Corner on OnFM Radio 101.4  in West London, founder of Bounce Point, helping entrepreneurs start their businesses and future creator of much more I expect, Viv has boundless energy and packs her shows with laughter and fun.

Viv held a secret dream to be a radio presenter since she was 12 which came out in a chance conversation and came to be just last May “we went on air and as soon as I spoke into the microphone, that was it! I didn’t think twice”. 

Since then, Viv’s show has gone from strength to strength – she’s interviewed over 40 women on her hour long show and inspired countless others via the airwaves and the Dream Corner website where she posts them all for a growing audience.

“You never really understand the impact that the things you do have on other people… some of the interviews I’ve done so far have touched people in ways I would not have imagined…”


Here Viv describes her journey and the work she loves to Michelle – how she decided to leave Nigeria and come to the UK, her experiences in inner-city New York that led to her founding a new business and her own dreams for the future for what she’s creating.

Find out:

  • just what the phrase get up and go” means in practice (several examples)
  • how Viv survived and thrived for 5 months in New York with no money
  • why experiencing urban poverty started a new business
  • chance, luck and what you can do about it
  • how the loss of a contract could be a dream come true
  • what golf lessons have got to do with anything…

Viv’s favorite location is…  New York (or vegging out on the couch catching up on recorded TV programmes!).
Go get some inspiration for yourself and listen to Viv interview me on her radio show Dream Corner

Viv’s also, of course, on Twitter: @Viv_Oyolu
