WhiteOlive_#TieTuesday_Managing your time

Time is a beautiful gift from God just like the ‘gift of life’. It’s a revealer & a healer. Our time is allotted to us daily – brand new & loaded, and we are expected to maximize it.

WhiteOlive_#MondayMarket_First Within

First Within

The journey of success is first an internal journey before it becomes reality in the physical. It is first within, then without; a powerful law for those who want to do something great with their lives. All global brands scattered across the world started as little but ‘living’ ideas in the minds of their founders. Every tangible thing in our world is created twice and so is every great invention, organization and achievement. Great entrepreneurs of our world today embarked on a journey in their minds before the realities caught up with them. How far have you travelled in...

Our Ultimate Protector

If you can read this chat then you have so much to be thankful for. #ThankfulThursday welcomes you to an amazing time with God. He is ‘Our Ultimate Protector’ from the seen and unseen. He fights our battles both known and unknown. One of such examples of His protection happened lately to a gentleman we know and love. He woke up that morning with praise in his heart and a ‘thank you’ on his lips. Little did he know he’d have so much more to be thankful for by the end of the day. He kissed his wife and...

In The Line Of Duty

We often neglect the truth in ‘The Line of Duty’ especially when you are older and single. Didi prided herself on her many achievements. She was already a top executive in just 7 years, hard work does pay. She loved herself, loved her family and most especially, loved God. Her life was picture perfect. But a call from someone very special to her was also the cause of her deepest pain – her mother. She looked at the phone as it rang and decided not to answer it. She went straight to the gym after work and spent the...

Distracted By Distractions

Good day, career professionals. Today on #TieTuesday, we’re dealing with distractions that can make a mess of your speed and upward trajectory at work. Distractions are everywhere. In our homes, on the way to the office and even at work itself. They are part of our daily lives and though they don’t appear as distractions, they steal out of our productive hours. A distraction is whatever breaks your focus; anything that takes your attention away from the task at hand. All manner of things can be a distraction to a career professional, from family to hands-on technology like your...

Power Of Delegation

Hi there and welcome to #MondayMarket. Today, we discuss the “Power Of Delegation”. It’s difficult for an entrepreneur to start & eventually turn a business into a successful global brand all alone because business is about meeting needs profitably. You will definitely need people who will help bear some of the load. Many entrepreneurs are unable to leverage the gifts, talents & skills of people who work with them and often times, this frustrates everyone on board: the entrepreneur, the business and team members. As such, entrepreneurs are stressed, overworked & unproductive because they refuse to see beyond themselves....

Dealing With Competition

Hello friend, time for another business changing edition of #MondayMarket and the topic for today is ‘Dealing With Competition’ Let’s dive straight in. It took Mike his whole life’s savings to put up his hotel business; a dream he’s always had since he was younger. He had always loved the hospitality business, paying close attention to the activities of the few highly rated hotels in Lagos. He believes he is the next ‘Doyen’ of the hospitality business in Nigeria and he wants to rival the ‘Marriotts’ and the ‘Hiltons’. This particular project had tasked him so much in terms of...
