Open Letter To Anyone That Wants To Create Extra Income Stream and Attain Financial & Time Freedom

Now It’s Your Turn to Turn Your Dream Into Reality I want 2017 to be the year you finally create a Lifestyle Business Online and/or Offline. I want this year to be the year you get focused and commit to one project that will become an income-producing asset. To make that happen, you have to Stop Dreaming and Start Doing. You must be so sick and tired of the rat race, working a job you don’t like; a job you don’t get joy and fulfillment from apart from earning enough money to just get by. If what you did last year didn’t position you on a path to financial freedom and actualization of your visions, then doing the same thing this year is not going to work either. Nothing will change if your ACTIONS don’t change. You must THINK & CREATE SOME VALUE, and set up a system (technology) that runs your business even while you…

It’s time you become an entrepreneur

_Start right where you are, today! This is one of my business secrets: I look for entrepreneurs all the time. The managers that I value the most are those who show an entrepreneurial flare. To paraphrase Moses, “O I would that everyone who works in our organization was an entrepreneur!” The other day I stirred quite a discussion when I remarked that some of the greatest entrepreneurs I’d ever met were not in business… that I’d even met civil servants and teachers who were great entrepreneurs! Entrepreneurship is not just about making money. __Think of an entrepreneur as someone who hungers to see transformation, and goes out to do something about it in an innovative and sustainable way. A friend of mine who was a senior executive for a well-established business once came to me and said he was thinking of starting his own business: “I’ve been working for 20…

The Value of Influence

“The truest measure of leadership is influence.” –John C. Maxwell  It might be one of the most shocking stories in the biblical account of the Numbers. Moses sends twelve tribal leaders from Israel to spy out the land of Canaan and to bring back a report. Upon their return, all twelve leaders agree that the land is very good. But ten of the leaders concluded there was no way Israel would be able to defeat the nations which presently occupied Canaan. The story provides incredible insight regarding the value of faith but also highlights the importance of leadership and influence. Understanding influence is essential for effective leadership. 5 Realities of Influence 1. Positional influence is limited Understanding influence is essential for effective leadership. The reality was, Joshua and Caleb were leaders in the tribes of Ephraim and Judah. The problem was that their influence didn’t reach beyond their tribes. In fact, it…


2 Innovative and Brilliant Nigerian Startup Businesses To Watch In 2017

Innovative Nigerian Businesses To Watch In 2017 | Image Source: propertycasualty360.com Innovation, a creative re-modification of the past with a new idea, device, or method, always changes the course of history. Businesses that solve real problems with brilliant and highly applaudable methods trigger unprecedented growth for themselves. While some others take advantage of the disorganised ways people do things, and so, consolidate them by creating a platform that makes a large number of lives better and a lot more easier. These innovative traits can be found in two small businesses I observed. They’re both exciting and solving problems people and organisations face everyday. The first doesn’t directly solve an individual problem, but rather brings the solutions together. While the second solves a problem most businesses experience in setting up their workplace. Here are the excerpts on these two amazing small businesses: 1). QuickZap: Source: play.google.com This simple but amazing app was built by…

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg working on another feat as he builds the biggest data center in the world powered by wind energy. Here Mr. Mark’s remarks concerning the project; I just stopped by our new data center being built in Fort Worth, Texas. It’s going to be one of the biggest data centers in the world and it’s powered entirely by wind energy. This site was a dirt field just a year and a half ago.

Thanks to everyone in Fort Worth for having me! — at Fort Worth Data Center. What do you think that is driving this…


Richard Branson Appeals to Successful Entrepreneurs to Support Start-ups

The start of a new year is a good time for reflection and setting personal resolutions. And Richard Branson has a challenge for everyone who has set up a business, or is in a more established position in their company this year: to help at least one budding entrepreneur. In a recent blog, the Virgin Group founder explains why we should all commit to helping entrepreneurs this year. “The hardest part of founding a business is just keeping it alive in the first year,” he says. “Research shows that this is when a majority of companies fail. After all, in the first few months cash is tight and experience is light. “Throughout the years, I’ve found that one of the best ways to prevent this from happening is by pairing energetic founders with knowledgeable mentors who can offer advice and experience. Too often, the same mistakes are made when new…

How to Improve Focus and Concentration and Become More Productive

Focus: What It Is and How it Works First things first. What is focus, really? Experts define focus as the act of concentrating your interest or activity on something. That’s a somewhat boring definition, but there is an important insight hiding inside that definition. What is Focus? In order to concentrate on one thing you must, by default, ignore many other things. Here’s a better way to put it: Focus can only occur when we have said yes to one option and no to all other options. In other words, elimination is a prerequisite for focus. As Tim Ferriss says, “What you don’t do determines what you can do.” Of course, focus doesn’t require a permanent no, but it does require a present no. You always have the option to do something else later, but in the present moment focus requires that you only do one thing. Focus is the key to productivity because saying no to every…
