Deji stood in front of the mirror for the tenth time. He knotted his tie again looking for any signs of imperfection; he had spent almost an hour getting ready for work. He will be attending his first management meeting today and God knows how long he had been looking forward to this very moment! This is what he has been praying for and gradually working towards. He allowed his mind to wander five years back as he remembered the first day he stepped into E&A Oil & Gas LTD. The gentle knock on his door drew him out......

Hunger Strike – The Feeding System

Hunger Strike – The Feeding System

We are in the popular age of #FitFam – special diets, intermittent fasting, restriction of certain classes of foods, regimented exercise routines, or at least recommended physical activity to keep in shape and healthy. We ladies have jumped on the bandwagon, and don’t get me wrong… there’s nothing as physically attractive as a #YummyMommy slaying! However, a beautiful, snatched woman with eyebrows on fleek, having both career and side hustles booming, yet weak in her spirit is an endangered soldier in the kingdom. That’s the point of my contemplation this #WomanWednesday. It’s not that serious, you might say. Oh,...

When Doing The Right Thing Makes You The Bad Guy

When Doing The Right Thing Makes You The Bad Guy

As good and ethical as doing the right thing seems it does not usually stand-alone. That is to say that doing the right thing cannot and must not be taken out of context. An action may be right per se, but put several factors into consideration and it becomes plain wrong. Consider the following: TIMING “Doing the right thing at the wrong time” is quite a widespread saying. There’s no such thing, however, as doing the right things at wrong times. A good act done out of timing is an absolutely wrong deed. See yourself as a Red Cross...

Slow Down

Tejiri James is a self-employed I.T guru. He is actually very good at what he does and fast-rising too. He is always tempted by the opportunity to make money and so hardly turns his client down.

Hunger Strike – The Work System

It’s a ‘sin’ for women to hunger (be ambitious). Yes, it is a sin for women to hunger to achieve more, build more, groom more, want more, and want to be more! For centuries, we allowed ourselves be set aside, feeding our husbands’ ego, stomach and bed. Then a new era came, self-realization: that we could be more for our husbands, for our children, for our families. We started wanting to do more, so getting an education was a new pride. Through education, we saw that we could assist our husbands at home and things improved but with improvement...

Businesses are not liquid because they do not have any value to exchange. Profit is expressed in two forms – Margin and Mark Up. Margin This is when profit is expressed as a percentage of sales/turnover. Here, you take into consideration all the costs (overhead, salaries, transportation and electricity costs, time, creativity, etc) incurred in producing that product or service then you add a margin to...

Hunger Strike – The Home Front

Hunger Strike – The Home Front

As a woman, I have come to understand the role I have to play in society. As much as I don’t like it and feel I should not be dictated to, it is what it is. As a Christian, I have found it hard to understand why I have to succumb when I have my will. Why do I have to be virtuous in a world of vile? As a wife, I now better understand why I had to be a wife before being a Mom. No offence to all the #SingleMoms out there, but there is something you...

Popcorn And The Theatre Of The Mind

Popcorn And The Theatre Of The Mind

We all have movies playing in our minds. Whether it be the Heartbreak Romance starring our Exes and featuring a Westlife soundtrack, or the Science Fiction of how we were genetically modified to look like our parents when we are the offspring of some wealthy billionaires somewhere. A film is being produced constantly. Sometimes they are short films based on worry. With minimum budget and very poor storytelling, we deliver to the silver screen of our soul a tale of how everything that can go wrong, will. But this capacity to imagine and meditate was not given to us...

Fred 2.0 By Mark Sanborn (Final Episode)

The author makes us understand that we are most impressed, not just by the quality of a person’s work but also by the way he or she treats us. A relationship is key. He made it categorically clear that a bad relationship with your client is a sure business killer. He also taught us to learn and master the art of Elevating the Experience for our customers. This simply means to give them more than they are expecting. An elevated experience happens when you are expecting something standard or run of the mill and you end up with more....
