I remember the day I couldn’t afford bus fair back home. It was just 200 Naira only but couldn’t afford it yet I was CEO. I slept in the office.That first office had boko haram mosquitoes . My body was swollen by the next day from mosquito bite. Its easy to admire me today but God is no respecter of persons. What he has done for me,he can do for you. The following will move any dummy from Grass to Grace in Business.
1)Be Humble particularly in your small days . Have you ever met people who need your help, yet they are rude? I have met several people like that. If someone truly can help You, he careless who you are and since you need his help,endure the painful comments and process that make you look foolish temporarily so as to get what you want. If only you endure hanging around those who have result. Soon, you will duplicate their result.
2)Enjoy the journey and not the destination. I meet people who want to make millions but can’t celebrate their first 10,000Naira sales. The fun of entrepreneurship is in the hustle. Enjoy the hustle!
3)Have time for YOU. You matter! No one will ever place value on you more than the one you place on yourself.
4)Be Adaptive and not rigid. Study times and seasons,adapt. If you cannot adapt, you cannot do business. Learn to adapt to plenty or not too plenty seasons.
5)SALES! SALES! SALES!
IF YOU DON’T HAVE 50 MILLION TO START YOUR BUSINESS AND DON’T LIKE SALES AND MARKETING, STOP WASTING YOUR TIME.BUSINESS IS NOT FOR YOU.Invest your money in great opportunities and you will still end up being financially FREE if you have a good financial mentor.
6)Spend Money on education. I have run my business without investing in knowledge and I have run it investing in training. The difference is like day and night. Spend money on books, seminars, Mentorship Sessions, Videos,training. Any opportunity to develop informally,Rush it!. Unfortunately, Africans rush for certifications. Those who get certifications are not in the list of top 100 richest people in the world. Certifications teach you how to run a business and not how to start, that’s why 90% business plans don’t work.
7)Your Network Determine Your NetWorth. Poor people go to work, rich Men Build network. Great relationships have saved me millions in loses. The friends you keep and books you read determine where you will be in 5 years from now. TWO PEOPLE YOU MUST NEVER BE FRIENDS TO; 1) MENTALLY POOR PEOPLE (TWO POOR PEOPLE CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES,SAVE YOURSELF FIRST AND THEN STRETCH HAND OF HELP TO OTHERS).
2) THOSE WHO ARE NOT TEACHABLE!
