The Best of Life-Transforming Quotes for All Entrepreneurs

Posted on

Here are some of the interesting quotes I have collected from the Facebook pages and timelines of my friends who are doing very well as entrepreneurs.

Some of them will be surprise to see their names here but I just had to appreciate them for inspiring lives around the world with the fruits of their lips and blessed pen on their hands.

If you find any of the quotes fascinating please leave a comment for us let’s know how it blessed your life.

Enjoy them.

“The worst people to seek help from are those who are jealous, chickened and intimidated by your success.”
– Emenike Emmanuel

“Never you give your time to the ungrateful ones and unbelievers of your destiny.”
– Chijioke Eugene

“Millions of blogs are ready to accept a helpful and in-depth guest article. No matter how knowledgeable a blogger you are, readers may not take you seriously if you go about it all by yourself.”
– Neil Patel (www.neilpatel.com)

“If #Passion is a name of a person then #Excellence must be the surname.”
– Emenike Emmanuel

“When there is nothing left to say, lift your head up high, smile and walk away like you own the world.The bigger you Awaits you.”
– Chijioke Eugene

“Even though we live in a world where it is easy now to take what you know, weave a ball of energy, and pursue it to the form of excellence, building a personal brand as a thought leader, it takes real work.”
– Emeka Nobis (www.emekanobis.com)

“The closer you get to excellence in your life, the more friends you’ll lose. People love you when you’re average because it makes them comfortable. But when you pursue greatness it makes people uncomfortable. Be prepared to lose people on your journey.”
– Sam Dede

In summary, you are a limit breaker.

When you look at yourself, what do you see?

Do you see a failure, or a champion positioned to rule the world? Do you see a complainer or a trailblazer, pathfinder and pacesetter?

Do the challenges around you in anyway inspire your thought to envisage the endless opportunities divinity made available to you?

I have come to discover that as the quest for overnight success intensifies, more opportunities are created for people of diligence. Today, they may not look like it but over time, you will discover that these ones will be more positioned to lead in their chosen profession than those who forced half-baked blessing to come their way.

My dear, you are a limit breaker. Limit breakers don’t seek for shortcuts. They take on the long-but-lasting approach to their great future. They trust God that if they can persevere more, the limit will break. And can I tell you something? It does.

Do not let anyone deceive you. If you can constantly work day and night for it, give up your sleep, strength and energy for it in prayer, planning and execution, sooner your vision will become a reality in your hand.

Where Your Greatness is

Posted on

It’s in you.

Yes. It’s in you. That greatness you have been so desirous to attend is not as far from you as it seems or any detractor might want to make you believe. That greatness is in you.
Your certificates, connections and background might be wonderful leveraging tools to help you achieve your big dream, but in essence, what you need to be great is in you.

Don’t let the devil trick you into abandoning your gift, passion and dream in pursuit of a temporal success he has to offer. What you need to be great is not ‘up there’ but right inside of you.

Never you underestimate the power of your mind to perform with excellence. Those who did, reaped regret and mediocrity as their rewards.

Consistently remind yourself that your GREATNESS is in you. Reconfigure your mind to believe in possibilities. Engage in activities that create room for your best to surface.

If it ever seems like it is not there (in you) is because you have consistently ignored it. And guess what? Whatever you ignore, over time, dies a natural death.

However, if you still find it difficult discovering that potential upon which your greatness has been wired to emanate from or you’ve discovered it but wants to learn how you can convert it into a funnel that channels income to you, then discussing it over with me won’t be a bad idea.

You are never too old to pursue your dream. Don’t let the date on the calendar limit your success in life.

If you can dream again, you can rise again. You are not as far from success as your detractors are making you believe.

Just that phone call, that text message, that blog post, that interview, that book, that new friend or just that short prayer could be the next bridge that will connect you to your long expected future.

Don’t give up until you breathe your last. Those who gave up, never went up.

How to motivate yourself for success

Posted on

You missed it. You messed up. You got it all wrong. It shocked you. But you have not come unto the end of your destiny. Your destiny is too big to be aborted by the devil. Even man’s effort to soil your glorious destiny is like a futile exercise made in pursuit of shadow.

Don’t dwell too long nursing your pains of repeated disappointments. Those that disappointed you don’t really know your worth. No one puts a knife to the cord that holds both of you together if he or she really understood your worth.

Destiny won’t end here. You may have missed it, messed up or got it all wrong but as long as you learnt something from it you haven’t really failed. Failure comes when you saw where you missed it yet you are not determined to do anything different from the old ways you did it.

Be optimistic, but always be ready to deal with issues of disappointment when it comes up. I’m yet to see anyone who has never been disappointed before.

Understand the fact that everyone won’t meet your expectations, and when they couldn’t, don’t you ever think that you have come to the end of your destiny-journey. Even if it seems like it is true, look up, get up and a fresh idea to begin all over again will manifest.

No matter how bad it is, never you let the enemy take away the joy of the Lord in you. Your joy is your strength. And if the devil succeeds in stealing your joy, you lose your strength – and when that happens, you lose everything.

Psychology: How to make life work for your good

Posted on

One of the covenant benefits we have as God’s people is that all things work for our good as long as we love Him and are called according to His divine purpose.

Having said that, I want you to dislodge every negative thought that tries to tell you that God hates you, and is uncomfortable to see you succeed, even to the height of counting in billions of dollars.

Rise up to a point where it becomes easier for anyone around you to attest to the fact that all things are indeed working out well for you. Nothing frustrates the devil like to see you laugh when he had done his worse to make you cry.

One of the advantages you have as a child of God is that God can use even the most perfected error introduced into your life by the devil as a raw material to process your next miracles.

Never you doubt this, that whether you are promoted or demoted, accepted or rejected, associated with or abandoned, beautiful or ugly, employed or unemployed, a Master or a servant, and formally educated or not, all things are working out well for you. Nothing has the capacity to silence the voice of greatness speaking over you.

My 5 months salaries and 2 years leave allowances as an Account Clerk and later on, the Assistant Branch Manager with my former Employer was the first sacrifice I had to pay to discover and actualize my destiny. Trust me, if they hadn’t pushed me to the wall enough, until it became literarily too difficult to breath, I may not have unleashed some of the potentials in me – especially, the gift of writing and motivating others.

I may not know your story but one thing is certain that God who is dynamic and supreme in personality can resolve to give attention to the inner quest of greatness within you using any instrument, whether it is positive or negative. He makes all things work out for your good.

Don’t panic. Don’t cry. Don’t let the devil run your life. And don’t conclude your story yet. Re-awaken your consciousness to the reality of the fact that all things will work for your good. As at the last time I checked, you still have many valuable scores ahead of the devil.

How to rule your world with self control

Posted on

DO NOT BLOW THE BALLOON
“Why did he use that word on me?”
“Why would he speak to me in that manner?”

“Is it because I brought myself too low to associate with everyone?”

“I don’t blame him.”

These, and more are some of the questions and conclusion going on in your mind right now. Your self ego has probably been trampled upon and made of no value. Your meekness has been misinterpreted for weakness and your reputation dragged to the mud. But you still don’t have to blow the balloon.

Blowing your balloon is like losing your self control. And when it happens, your self esteem which you have worked so hard to protect at all cost will still be lost.

You don’t have to lose your self control to show your manliness or maturity. You don’t have to reply every disappointment to show that you are not a moron. Sometimes you have to play the cool and work things out in another way.

He might think he is using you, but it all depends on your perception, understanding and plans. No one can use you. Quote me. I can say it again and again. See yourself as been useful. And when you do, you will find it easier to keep your cool and not blow the balloon.

One of the wisest Roman Emperors, Marcus Aurelius said; “You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

You must learn to control yourself when people act, and tend to drag you below the level you think you are.
It is true you deserve much more than you are treated in that family, organization and contract, but you don’t have to lose your self control and blow the balloon to prove it.
Take this from me; ‘Your self control is an integral part of your self worth – preserve and value it, and you will be glad you did.’

No. 1 Biblical Principle Every Successful Careerist Never Joked With

Posted on

“SEEING THE crowds, He went up on the mountain; and when He was seated, His disciples came to Him.”
– Matthew 5:1 –

I have read this verse of the Scripture time without number but the kind of revelation I got from it this morning was mind blowing.

In this Bible passage Jesus through His ACTION told us the position we ought to occupy when we see the crowd.
You cannot claim to be the head while you mix yourself up with the crowd. It is no arrogance to work on yourself to the extent that you become positioned at the helm of affairs in your industry. Trust me, if you continue with the crowd, with time you will get lost.

When you discover that your industry is becoming populated with crowd at the plain, it is a divine calling to move up to the mountain. Why? It is at the mountain that the spotlight falls on you. At the mountain, you see and can be seen. When you speak, you can be heard.

Every field of life has its mountain. And those who remain at the valley never amounts to anything. They end up as followers, copycats and always ever learning people and never able to come to full knowledge of the truth.

At the mountain top of your career, not everyone will be privileged to know the principles of your success except those who deserve you and strongly want to learn from you – others end up as fans.

No matter how intelligent you are, until you work yourself up the mountain of your industry or career, most people may never hear nor see you.

They are people whose destinies are connected to you that may never see getting to the industry-mountain as something doable until you do it. None of the disciples of Christ ever thought of moving up to the mountain when they were almost overtaken by the crowd until Jesus set the pace. And today, bear it in mind that they are people whose rising you are delaying when you refuse to move up.

I charge you today to come up to the mountain where you can see and be seen, and you will be glad to you did.

Top 2 Important Factors Needed To Climb The Corporate Ladder Faster Than Anyone Thought Possible

Posted on

While I worked as an employee several years I go, I discovered and practised two (2) important virtues that helped me climb the corporate ladder very fast, such that at the age of 23, I had already become an Assistant Manager in one of the Company’s branches.

At a point, my direct Boss, being the Manager,Nedu Iheanacho left me to do all the jobs myself because he had confidence that I will deliver. I had the privilege to interact with elders and customers and also strike some deals and negotiations with them as a result of the mastery I got in these two (2) important virtues.

Unarguably, these virtues have the capacity to position you at a point that you can become the favourite staff of your Boss.

They are;

1. Think through every problem – and you might come up with another easier strategy to tackling it.

2. Develop the habit of working more than you are paid for – and you will natural buy over the heart of your boss.

NB: There are more factors to gaining this kind of access to your boss but I won’t spell all of them out here. Let me reserve the remaining 18 until you have invited me to speak to your Church, Organization or Students as the case may be.

How to Generate Provision to Sponsor Your Vision

Posted on

God, the Creator of the universe is no waster. He is the best business Guru I have met so far in my life. He does not waste His resources and do not encourage His children to do so.

One of the things I respect so much about God is His knowledge of leverage and strategy. He knows what to give, to get what He wants. He’s powerful, almighty and supreme but He still chose to play by this rule so that we, who wants to be conformed into the image of His likeness might learn of Him.

One of His principles I want to share with you today is, GOD’S PRINCIPLE FOR PROVISION. And that principle states that “vision is what attracts provision.” In other words, if you need provision, you must have a vision.

This principle I am sharing with you here today is something that has worked wonders for me. Trust me, if it didn’t work I won’t post it here.

One of the things that makes God respond faster to the prayer of a man with a vision is because He gave the vision. In fact, at every seconds, billions of ideas (capable of making the world a better society) are released from Heaven but the unfortunate thing is that only few persons conceive and write it down to become a vision worth pursuing.

When God looks at those few people that grabbed and cherished these ideas, He says; “thank you” and goes ahead to make the supplies, contacts and strategies to bring that vision to manifestation.

I have never seen a man or woman who had a genuine vision but didn’t get divine provision.

Vision is what attracts the provision of God. I have come to understand too that BIG VISION attracts BIG PROVISION. The bigger the vision, the bigger the provision.

So, instead of trying to adjust and downsize the big vision into a smaller one that suits the level you are at the moment, leave it the way it came and stick closely to God, the author and originator of all great ideas and He will make the provision available.

1. Discover where the money is: who are your ideal customers?
2. Create enough stimulus in your PRODUCTS and ADVERTS: VALUE vs FEATURES. Customers are looking for value not features. Give them what they want.

Top 7 Reasons Why Most Bloggers Quit So Soon

Posted on

[An article that unveils the unspoken intents why
most bloggers quit blogging too soon and thus never live to
share in the millions of dollars circulating in the dot com world]

Are you an entrepreneur, a student or one of the unemployed youths hoping to join millions of other bloggers making six digit figures as an income from simply blogging and other related internet businesses? Here comes an article to educate you beforehand over certain reasons why most bloggers don’t continue after the first one year of spiral blogging and possible things you can do to become an outstanding success in this industry.

“Passion is the fuel and oil that lubricates and
empowers every iota of success and accomplishment
ever experienced by an entrepreneur.
Without passion entrepreneurs quit.”
Emenike Emmanuel
Founder, Emchis Consulting

Having failed as a blogger before but now upstanding and of course raising thousands of others to stand with me, I think I am in a better position to show you reasons why most bloggers quit so soon and why I choose not to quit again.

“Gone so soon” is the word to describe the speed with which most bloggers abandon their blogging career to move on to other businesses.

Making money online as a blogger can be easy if you understand the principles that will help you to stay abreast, otherwise, it can also be highly frustrating.

Some bloggers who claim to have over 100,000 visitors in their first month of blogging most times are not always telling us the whole truth, except for bloggers who had some previous blogs and of course some regular viewers who they had to introduce to their next and newest blog, (I mean the likes of Michael Dunlop who had to introduce his blog readers at http://www.RetireAt21.com to http://www.IncomeDiary.com).

When budding bloggers who we are hoping to train into hot-headed entrepreneurs get to read most of these exaggerations, they are often left with two options of either to quit and move into other businesses or just stay back waiting for their own turn of the traffic in the future with little or no definiteness of purpose.

Whatever be the issue, I still believe that “quitting is not an option.” Only small minds quit too early. Don’t make yourself one. When it comes to making entrepreneurs and employees perform at their peak, I have always played my part and that’s one of the lessons I have never failed to litter on the pages of every article published here in Emchis Consulting.

For several reasons bloggers who came into blogging (with the hope of making a fortune out of it) quit so soon. And from the experiences I had from my previous failed blogs and information I gathered from friends who abandoned blogging to other line of businesses came these Top 7 Reasons Why Most Bloggers Quit So Soon.

1. Drain of Passion
Passion is a pivotal instrument needed to keep businesses running. In fact, I can vividly say that passion is the fuel and oil that lubricates and empowers every iota of success and accomplishment ever experienced by an entrepreneur. Without passion entrepreneurs quit.

The case of a blogger who is drained of passion over his blogging career cannot be different. Such a person is bound to quit blogging as soon as the passion to write, publish and interact with other bloggers and followers isn’t there anymore.

2. False Perceptions about Blogging
Newbie have several misconceptions about blogging. Some think money comes simply by writing and publishing. Oh my God! What a foolish thing to think this way! Making money from blogging isn’t that easy. It requires much more than just creating a blog post and hitting ‘publish.’ Unfortunately, when those false perceptions and conceptions fail some bloggers, all they could remember is the word ‘quit.’

3. Quest for Quick Money or Overnight Wealth
As long as you have not invested money and time into your blog (directly or indirectly), your probability of making huge income from it is limited. It might interest you to know that intelligence can wonderfully break these protocols such that even without advert spaces, word ad, or google adsense, you can still make money from your blog. I know you will be interested to know how I do it but let’s leave it for our next post [or rather for students who will register for How to Build a Successful Blog with me].

Investing in your blog can come by a way of buying an advertorial space in other blogs to promote either your product and services or just your posts. This strategy is what I have spirally used to garner traffic to my blog. See Naija Pound where I promote my latest audio book titled; How to be an Entrepreneur of Excellence.

However, quest for overnight wealth which has failed and will continue to fail bloggers has never ceased in making the impatient bloggers quit blogging so soon.

4. Bad Ranking on Alexa.com
One of the most frustrating yet energizing experiences most bloggers have is trying to check their web ranking on http://www.Alexa.com . When some bloggers after publishing probably their 50th or 100th blog post and still find their blogs either not captured by Alexa.com Matrices or ranking millionth, hurriedly quit blogging.

This decision to quit too early is also remotely related to having little or no visitors view their blog posts. Notwithstanding the fact that it can be quite tempting to quit, it is however more interesting to synergize and re-empower yourself to become one among the successful bloggers. Read up this article from a trusted friend of mine on how you can Improve On Your Google Ranking Using the Social Media.

5. Lack of Adequate Technical Abilities
Blogging needs some techniques. These techniques include but not limited to ability to tag rightly and professionally, ability to link some social networking sites to your blog, ability to install some necessary web tools and plugins etc. When some bloggers have tried without success, some choose to quit while few pay others to do it for them. Well, I still believe you don’t necessarily need to be a Web Savvy to get these things right. You just need to put in extra time, and be passionate about your decision to be a Professional Blogger.

There are several levels of technicalities needed to keep your blog beautiful. To make a successful blogger you need to learn them.

6. Poor Writing Skills
People with poor writing skills have lesser probability of making a successful blogger. Greater percentage of the things you will be doing in blogging has everything to do with writing but poor writing skill will definitely bring in a mishap. Whether you are into gaming, software development or any sort of internet marketing, the place of your writing ability cannot be substituted.

Although not everyone was born with this skill but it can actually be learnt and even mastered. I can remember the first day I thought about writing my first book. I woke up that night with everything I wanted to write on my mind but translating them into a readable sentence was where the problem lied. However, since I knew that ‘writing’ was what will launch me to my next level, hence I continued to develop my writing skills. Today, I can boast of over 100 business-based articles, 8 unpublished books and several contributions to magazines. It is amazing that today I can write as much as 5000 words every day, all because I gave in my time to it.

To become a successful blogger or probably just a writer (not blogging this time), I recommend you read Okechukwu Ofili’s article here on How to Write Often.

7. Not Being Knowledgeable about SEO
SEO means, Search Engine Optimization. I may not know any SEO Expert but I know of one even though he has often declined to be. From the moment I began to follow his advice, everything about my career as a blogger changed, my ranking on Alexa.com came up and when searching for certain keywords on Google you will definitely find my posts. His name is MICHAEL DUNLOP. Michael Dunlop, the founder of http://www.RetireAt21.com and http://www.IncomeDiary.com has played a great role in teaching me the reasons while some blog posts appear on search engine and get read why others never surfaced. Bravo to him. Also, Rebekah Radice, founder of http://www.RebekahRadice.com has also been instrumental in helping me fully understand the impact of the social media in growing my traffic and also in marketing.

To enjoy your life as a professional blogger you must be knowledgeable about how SEO works; the function of webcrawlers and the benefits of tagging appropriately. Those who rely on having creative and well articulated write-ups most times end up not having their blogs visited and in worst cases never had their articles shared.

To make it big as a blogger is possible, it is not easy, but you need passion, patience, hard work and you must be knowledgeable about SEO ranking. Most importantly, you must have to hone your writing skills. Even if you weren’t born with it, you can learn and develop it.

Having said all these, I wouldn’t like to see you quit, whether as a blogger, a student or as an entrepreneur. You must understand that up there in the sky are no limitations. If you add more strength, passion and creativity to what you are doing today, you will certainly project yourself into the sky where you can succeed without limit.

probability of making a successful blogger.”

5 Things to Note on Your Way to Your Glorious Destiny

Posted on

Most people will not believe in your gifting and divine talent until you give it a voice. 2 years ago, once upon a friend never believed I could amount to anything, so he never considered it an abomination to make jest of me in the public (and even in Church) – calling me different names as he laughed on. He tried his best to discourage me in my writing career. On several occasions he mentioned names of few people that failed, including himself and begged me not waste my time.

Why all these things continued, my Pastor Uzoigwe Samuel Abraham never stopped calling me “Emma Wonder”. That nickname he awarded me suddenly started taking form. I turned out to be a wonder that the world will wonder about like he often prayed for me. It also became a great motivation for me. It made me have great interest for excellence. So when the call to become a Motivational Speaker came I was never in doubt if it was real or not.

Now, I have a working dream, a testimony of God’s faithfulness and will definitely not graduate as a job seeker. He got it all wrong.

Things to note:
1. Discouragement to your dreams won’t come from someone you don’t know.
2. Anyone who discourages you is afraid of you rising higher than him or her.
3. If God said go, don’t ask “why?” Take off first then the “why” will naturally unfold itself to you.
4. Those who undermined you when you took off in the journey to your glorious destiny will be so humbled by every successful move you made. If the person is still your friend on facebook he won’t comment on your achievement.
5. Never never forget to acknowledge those who were of great support to your rising. And always pray for God’s super abundant favour on them.

Finally, let your biggest motivations rise from within as they are inspired by God. Everything anyone else tries to do is an addendum.

5 Reasons Why Every Public Speaker Needs a Website [or a Blog]

Posted on Updated on

why every speaker needs this
Are you a Public Speaker who has a strong desire to multiply his streams of income? Do you wish to be an influential Public Speaker in this industry such that when you speak audience can’t help but listen? Are looking forward to combining your speaking profession with your writing career like some of my friends and fans are hoping that I teach them?
Are you interested in changing the world, flying your name around the world without visa and of course not die a local champion who can’t survive anywhere else except his environment of abode? If you answered ‘YES’ to those questions above, then I humbly advice that you read this article with every sense of interest because I specifically wrote it for you.

Before I finally concluded in my mind that it was time to write this article, I made an extensive research and found out that no article has ever been published online on this issue of Why Public Speakers Need a Website (or a Blog). No doubt, this was the reason why I said you need to read this article with every sense of interest.

Not having a website or at least a FREE BLOG by Motivational Speakers and Writers is one among the reasons why these two industries are often neglected in the society. Can you believe with me that two great speakers and writers can live within the same city (like Aba, Abia State or even Lagos all in Nigeria) without each other knowing themselves? This is one of the tragic things that make Public Speakers and writers not to appreciate the values of the century.

” One of the deadliest mistakes a public speaker or a
writer can do is to invest all his time in building his capacity
only to make his followers and fans trying to connect with him
vulnerable to be manipulated and afterward duped.”
– Emenike Emmanuel
CEO, Emchis Consulting

Whether you are speaking for a living, for fun or you just want to fill the gap, having a website (or a blog) must be considered an ‘urgent necessity.’ Although it is not your website (or blog) that makes you a powerful speaker, but it is necessary for you to grow in the industry of public speaking.
Connecting with friends on social media
In this computer age where everyone wants it cheap and wouldn’t want to waste time, it is also expedient that you don’t prepare to waste opportunities. No matter how much you seem to labour under correct knowledge, you will never have a second chance to make the first impression. As a Public Speaker you must understand that success in this computer age cannot be achieved with a typewriter mentality. With this I mean to say you should see the need to upgrade. Upgrade by having your own website (or blog).

Having being in both industries (speaking and blogging) for quite some time, I have come to realise how important it is that every public speaker have a website. Both are inseparable twins if success were intended.

In today’s post, I want to share with you 5 Practical Reasons Why Every Public Speaker/Writer Needs a Website or a Blog. I would have loved to charge for this article like others do but because of my vision for Emchis Consulting I cannot and I will not in the future. In Emchis Consulting it is one of my goals to assist you build a successful career. I have done it for entrepreneurs and I can’t fail to do same to my fellow and aspiring public Speakers.

5 Practical Reasons Why Every Public Speaker/Writer Needs a Website (or a Blog)

1. Influence and Accessibility
The sphere of influence and accessibility of a speaker with a website (or a blog) can’t be the same with a speaker who does not have a website or a blog.

It is too mechanical to operate in the century of ours without a website (or a blog). Same fate applies to writers. In my speaking and writing career, I have been able to touch thousands of lives in countries (for instance, Antigua and Barbuda) I do not even know the continent they belong to (apologies for my ignorance), all because I own a blog [Emchis Consulting]. I have had people call me with phone numbers I don’t even know which country had the code (of course I had to research through the internet at CountryCode.org or CountryCallingCodes.com to find out the country that had the code).

Owning a website does not cost a fortune. You can actually have one.

2. People (fraudsters) Easily Fake Such Speakers and Thus Make Adherers Vulnerable Without Your Knowledge

I have seen people pose on the internet to be Wole Soyinka while on the contrary Wole Soyinka does not have a website nor a registered member of any social networking site according to AfricasCountry.com (May 23, 2014). Since this had continued, who knows how many undisclosed cases of people who may have thought they were following Wole Soyinka on facebook or twitter in their ignorance.

One of the deadliest mistakes a public speaker or a writer can do is to invest all his time in building his capacity only to make his followers and fans trying to connect with him vulnerable to be manipulated and afterward duped.

3. It is Another Easy Way to Give Back to the Society that Moulded You and Gave You a Platform as a Speaker

Any speaker or writer who does not have a website nor a member on any social network in this 21st century should be considered a stingy speaker or writer (strictly my opinion). If people [especially our budding speakers, entrepreneurs and writers] must pay all the time to access every of your intellectual materials then your credibility as a character moulder and life coach should be questioned.

Even Robert Kiyosaki, Fela Durotoye, Les Brown, Guy Kawasaki etc have a website and a blog. Donald Trump, American billionaire personally updates his facebook account himself. Richard Branson, founder of Virgins Inc. gives out free but powerful business advices in his blog at Linkedin.com. Of course you and I are witnesses to the fact that Aliko Dangote, the richest black man in the world from Nigeria joined twitter on December 31, 2014 [with the twitter handle: @AlikoDangote] because he wants to connect with his fans and customers around the world.

Now, what are you waiting for? Can’t you see that having a blog beyond making money is an avenue to blessing someone’s life?
Before you can become a celebrated Brand Ambassador, which is the dream of every professional, you must be actively involved on the internet.

4. It is a Monument For Posterity

In the next 50 years if Jesus Christ tarries, posterity can’t deny the impact I have made today and I will continue to make through my blog because Emchis Consulting will be standing as a great monument in my name. By then Emchis Consulting would have turned out a household name when it comes to offering expert business and career advice on the internet and at conferences and seminars.

I am glad I have others speakers and writers who are also thinking in my direction, a crop of people who are changing the world like me through their websites and blogs even as speakers and writers. Few examples of such are; http://www.SethGodin.com, http://www.OnyiAnyadoMediaHouse.com, http://www.RebekahRadice.com, http://www.Naijapreneur.com etc.

The decision to raise a great monument for posterity no doubt could be one among the reasons why Joel Brown, founder of Addicted2Success.com refused to sell out his blog even when he was offered $250,000, $600,000 and even a couple of million dollar deals to do so. Joel Brown, during an interview with Yaro Starak, founder of http://www.Entrepreneurs-Journey.com disclosed that his refusal for a buy out was primarily because he’s more excited about seeing where Addicted2Success.com will take him than selling out now. Today, Joel Brown makes over $100,000. Thanks to patience, creativity and thinking-for-the-future.

Although it is not only a website or a blog one can build as a monument in his name, but it is important that you see the need to own a website or a blog as a public speaker or a writer.

5. It is Another Way You Can Build Your Reputation and Credibility as a Speaker/Writer

When seeking for further information about a speaker who is to speak at an event or that spoke at an event people turn to the web for help. One of such resourceful websites is the one built by my friend John Chau and his team at http://www.MotivationalSpeakersAfrica.com . People searching through the web scan through articles the speakers had written and the ones written about them.

Once people starts recognizing you in your industry, booking speaking engagements will be a lot easier. Apart from owning a website or a blog where you’ve written articles on your field, other written materials such as books, pamphlets, guest posts, magazine articles you’ve done or audio tapes you have can go a long way in helping you establish your credibility with your prospects.

After your speech at events, do you have a place where the audience that has listened to you could go to know more about you? If you don’t have one, I recommend you to go set up a blog now. You can as well stop reading and do it now. Take action now to move your speaking and writing career to the next level and afterwards you can come back to finish this article.

After speaking at events (like I will be traveling this weekend for my Emchis Financial Empowerment Summit –EFES), I distribute a detachable form that contains information about me and my organization. On the form is a link to my blog.

The reputation and credibility I have built over time through this strategy can’t be matched.

“As much as you can talk every day, you should be
able to write every day to remain relevant.”

How to Deal With the Fear of Starting a Successful Blog

Posted on

How to series
Do you want to join millions of people around the world who are making waves in the blogging industry as a blogger? These ones have gained independence from corporate slavery. Over the week, I met with some extremely successful bloggers who after all they had studied in the Universities ended up Bloggers. One was a Journalist and the other was a Registered Nurse.

Do you want to drastically deal with the fears that have hindered you from making the move into the world of abundance as a blogger? Meaning that you have the passion to write but you are afraid of taking the first step. Probably you considered it a risk not worth taking. Or were you thinking blogging will stop you from living the life of freedom you’ve always wanted? If you answered yes to any or all of those questions then I can guarantee you that you are in the right place.

In this blog I have a special interest in building entrepreneurs who will go round the world teaching others How to Change the World.

Recently I got a message from one of my facebook friends and a keen follower of Emchis Consulting which I think it will be nice to share with you. He said;
“Good morning Mr. Emenike Emmanuel. My name is Stan. I just read your article titled “Misconceptions about Blogging” and felt the need to send you this message whilst the fire ignited by your article is still at full blaze in my mind.

I have a passion for writing and have always wanted to go into blogging, but I don’t know where to put the first step. I harbour fears that I might not be able to sustain it. I will really appreciate your guidance and counsel. I have been following your works on facebook. Thank you Sir.”

This is not the first time I’m receiving this kind of message, I have had people stop me at conferences and on the street with excitement that they finally met me live. I have also had people recommend me for speaking engagements by virtue of the great contents of this blog, Emchis Consulting which is speedily making a wave in the industry, but for the fact that I promised him of creating a new article in his honour and in response to his questions, I have decided to include this testimony. Anyway, this is by the way. Let’s go back to the topic of discussion – How to Deal with the Fear of Starting a Blog.
Blogosphere
Registering on wordpress (the best blogging platform) and creating your first article, and afterwards hitting ‘publish’ can be very easy and exciting but continuously churning out great contents can be very difficult, and it is one among the reasons while most people like Stan are afraid if they can sustain it.

Emchismotivationalnetwork.blogspot.com, Emchis.blogspot.com and Emenikeemmanuel.blogspot.com were the first three blogs I started which are now abandoned for several reasons even though my wonderful intellectual materials are still there. That’s to say that starting a blog is not enough but having a Big Picture of what the content and marketing of the blog will be like is much more important.

Starting a blog is a great doorway into the realm of freedom from corporate slavery. When Michael Dunlop of IncomeDiary.com and RetireAt21.com ,Matt Wilson of Under30CEO.com, Ajaero Tony Martins of MyTopBusinessIdeas.com, Bamidele Onibalusi of WritersInCharge.com, Darlinton Omeh of WealthResult.com, Brian Clark of CopyBlogger.com, Darren Rowse ProBlogger.net, Rebekah Radice of RebekahRadice.com, Joel Brown of Addicted2Success.com and I myself (founder of Emchis Consulting) set out to finally become bloggers we had several challenges which we knew had the capacity to stop except we aggressively confront and conquer them.

In fact, the first one month you started blogging can be so challenging that if you are not careful you will either be forced by circumstances to dive into too many niches (combining business with news) or quit entirely. This happens especially when you don’t have visitors on your blog.

How to Overcome the Fear of Building a Successful Blog
As a newbie in the blogging industry, these are some of the things you must do;
1. Expect discouragement from friends and family members but be determined to drive through the odds.
2. Work overtime. Take no vacation.
3. Write often. Hone your writing and speaking skills.
4. Give more interest and time to developing good content over design
5. Attend seminars and conferences related to the niche you are blogging about, it helps you to connect with people.
6. Network with other bloggers by meeting them, following their blogs, commenting often on their blog posts, following them on facebook, twitter, google+ etc
7. Make extensive research before you write.
8. Focus on what you are passionate about and it will be hard for you to quit so soon.
9. See blogging like you see every other business that can’t make money without inputting effort.
10. Give yourself hope that one day you might be giving an offer of over a million dollar to buy up your blog.

In Conclusion
The fear of starting your own blog can actually be dealt with if you will learn to follow the advices of pioneers in the industry. Wait a minute, do you know what you might probably be losing if you don’t start now? The fear of wasting the opportunity is enough to keep you determined to start your blogging career today. However, there are too many Misconceptions about Blogging which I would want you to read before you take action into starting your first or next blog today.

Successful Habits of Visionary Entrepreneurs

Posted on

Mind of an Entrepreneur
Are there visionary entrepreneurs you would like to learn of their habits? Have you tried finding out what makes some entrepreneurs successful and others unsuccessful? And do you think you’ve got all it takes to become a visionary entrepreneur? (Answer those questions before you continue).

As much as I am not going to compel you to live these habits of successful entrepreneurs, I will not relent either in showing you ways these habits can change your life if eventually you learn them.

Before the inspiration to write this article came, what has taken a better part of my thought in the last one week was and still is,; “why on earth will an entrepreneur set out or devotedly be interested to establish a business firm he/she knows won’t last ? What will such a mediocre gain by such a worthless venture? Or is it just for the fun of being a one-time business owner?”

You know, this is a difficult lifestyle to behold. Most entrepreneurs who are in business today do not care to know what they stand to gain at the long run, and no doubt, this is among many reasons why they don’t care to observe the output of every habit they inputted into their businesses.

To make a visionary entrepreneur, more than words are needed. Every habit you exhibit has its resultant effect on your business whether good or bad.

In today’s post, I want to dwell on some of the successful habits Henry Wells, William Fargo and John Butterfield, all of American Express inputted as far back as 1850 into American Express that made their legacy what it is today, the successful habits William Boeing inputted into Boeing in 1915 when he founded it, the successful habits of William Durant founder of General Motors, Thomas Edison of General Electric (the man who thought differently from other inventors), William Hewlett and David Packard founders of HP in 1937, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Aliko Dangote of Dangote Group, Bill Gates of Microsoft Inc., Steve Jobs of Apple, Mazi Clement Owunna of Starline Nigeria, Uche Ugah of Master Energy, Ossy Prestige Ossy of Prestige Associate and many other world renowned successful entrepreneurs.

If I may ask you, what could be some of the habits these men mentioned above were able to exhibit that made their businesses stand out among others? Well, I may not know exactly as I wasn’t there with them but permit me to borrow words from Colin Powell who said; that “There is no secret to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” This quote makes me believe I have a clue to why these men succeeded while others didn’t.

In my previous exclusive interviews with Authors, Entrepreneurs and Public Speakers in U.S.A., London and Nigeria, I came to realize that those successful habits of visionary entrepreneurs are the same all over the world. That is to say that a millionaire in Nigeria has the capacity to become a millionaire in United States of America under the condition that you play by the same rule that earns you money having every other things as a constant. With this I mean to say that if you open up to what I am about to teach you here, you will achieve great success irrespective of the country you find yourself.

To build a successful business that transcends beyond the first generation founders, the habit starts from day one. The big picture of the future begins from your thought. What do you think about successful people? Do you see them to be lucky or spiritualists? Beyond the Two Things Successful Business People Do, they laboured under correct knowledge, thought ‘next generation’ and most importantly lived the successful habits of visionary entrepreneurs.

Top 7 Habits of Visionary Entrepreneurs

1. They had strong desire to be successful
2. They were ready to risk their momentary gain for their future-endless benefits
3. They were team players who kept by the rules of engagement
4. They were bent on building a clock instead of being experts in time telling
5. They built businesses that create room for innovation
6. They were careful to build businesses that the next generations to come won’t be ashamed to be a part of
7. They were busy raising people after their kind

To keep on producing same successful results in the future you must make it a constant in reproducing after your kind as a visionary entrepreneur such that even in your absence the right and best choice will still be made.

Misconceptions About Blogging

Posted on Updated on

Misconceptions about Blogging pix
How much do you know about the blogging industry? What was your intention for coming into blogging? And what was the biggest lie you were told about the blogosphere? Are you tired of being lied to and now want to know the truth about making money from blog? If you are, then I am ready to help you. You are not permitted to be deceived again on issues about blogging by virtue of the content of this article but if eventually you get deceived, simply know that you caused it because you have refused to abide by my technical yet simple instructions.

Blogging is much more than copy and paste like I have always told you. Blogging is a noble profession which should only be reserved for those few integral part of the society who delight in writing and are passionate about educating the world. Most popular bloggers have deceived new entrants that blogging is all about money making. They have deceived new entrants that it is only the news niche where money can be generated in blogging.

Blogging is not only for the purpose of making money, it is much more than that.
Emenike Emmanuel
Often times most newbie are always misunderstanding the place of blogging in granting employment and financial liberty. Blogging has offered most people a new opportunity to own their own business usually home-based businesses. Blogging as a home-based business has lifted most Nigerians off the burdens of corporate slavery.

Misconceptions about Blogging

Blogging is All about Money Making

Blogging is not just for the purpose of making money. In fact Henry Ford, the founder of Ford Motors was right when he said that “a business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” Most people who made great amount of money from blogging were mostly those who went into with the goal of achieving something much more than money. In fact, I always advice that it is better to do anything for fame than for money because I have discovered new ways which Thinking Money Makes People Poor, and that is why those who heed to my instructions always come out an outstanding success.

If you are in the Blogging Industry or wish to join soon you must realise from today henceforth that blogging is beyond money making. For more information on other things that could motivate you to become a Blogger or as a Blogger, read this article: 5 Things to Keep You Motivated as a Blogger.

You Don’t Need Passion to Be a Blogger, All You Need is Access to the Internet

Just like every other kind of business career, passion is very pivotal to your excellence. It is passion that keeps you awake at night to research, write and publish. Without passion it will be very difficult to remain a Blogger for more than a year. Most copy and paste attitude being exhibited by some bloggers today especially in Nigeria is because they no longer have the passion to remain in blogging.

One of the biggest lies I have heard ever since I came into blogging professionally was; “you don’t need to be even passionate about it (that is, blogging), all you just need is to have access to the internet.” And my question is who is feeding our innocent and budding online entrepreneurs with all these lies? No wonder the adherers of this fake information copy, edit and paste information on their website without considering the legal implications! They spread rumours and afterwards mess up the blogging profession.

If You Can’t Write You Can Copy Other Bloggers

If you can’t write don’t blog. Look for some other businesses you can do. There are several other internet businesses you could do from home apart from blogging. Please don’t be a party to those who soil the reputation of this noble profession. That Linda Ikeji makes millions of Naira from her blog in a month does not mean we do not have other people who can make as much as twice what she makes from other kind of businesses. What of Akin Alabi, founder of NairaBet.com and Simdul Shagaya, founder of Konga.com? Aren’t they successful? It is plagiarism to steal people’s web content to publish on your blog as though you are the originator. If you can’t write you can market online or go into partnership with others who have special writing skills like most people have done with me. I now write for several magazines and individuals – some I sell out rightly, others I publish in my name.

You Can Write On Any Niche

There’s always an industry you know something about. If it is not the music industry it is the fashion industry, if it is not the movie industry it is football, if it is not entrepreneurship it is insurance, if it is not about the internet it is something else. There are numerous niches available to be explored but the truth is that no matter how versatile you are in knowledge you can’t write (blog) on just any niche. You must have an area of specialty. You must have a niche where you have strong passion for. It is possible you may have more than one niche like me but before you go into blogging professionally it is expedient you decide a niche to blog on. This is where your success as a blogger begins. Your niche is what determines the people you attract to your blog. People surfing the net for information go by keywords and it is these Google keywords that determines if your blog comes up on the search engine or not.

Don’t be deceived, you can’t write on just any niche. Decide a niche you will blog on. There’s something you know how to do best, begin from there. It could be about mobile apps, electronics, psychology, prayer or what have you. Begin with a niche and let your followers understand you to be an expert in that field and before long, money will flow in your direction.

Blogging is a Get Rich Quick Scheme

Most bloggers get frustrated in their blogging career because of the misconceptions they had about blogging. They were told big lies which they could not resist. In fact, when I came into blogging newly we were all told the same lies. Most popular bloggers have deceived us to believe that once you come into blogging you become a millionaire overnight, but this is not true. It takes time to make money online especially as a blogger. It takes courage and perseverance to continue blogging while you wait for the money to come. It took Linda Ikeji of LindaIkeji.blogspot.com, Uche Eze of BellaNaija.com, Darlington Omeh of WealthResult.com, Farouk Radwan of 2KnowMyself.com and several others years before they started making money from blogging. So if you must succeed in this blogging industry you must be ready to exercise patience.

Let me sound it clear again before I finally wrap up this post that blogging is not a get-rich-quick business scheme that makes you money overnight. If you are thinking that way please be informed that blogging is not for you. Blogging is majorly for the purpose of bringing solution to people and as those problems are solved, the money comes.

One More Secret

Posted on

Just one more secret to your business excellence, one more secret to become a highflier in life, one more secret to land the biggest job, one more secret to earn the trust of people you have never met and one more secret to earn your name, business or organisation a free ticket to any country of your choice. Between you and your promise land is one more secret… This one more secret has changed my life, business and the way I do things. I want to believe it can as well transform your life as soon as you begin to live by it.

What could this one more secret be? Don’t because you want to be real make yourself vulnerable today or in future. What do I mean by making yourself vulnerable? That’s, thinking you are being real while you belittle, talk down and expose your little secret. Don’t say it the way it is, say it the way you want it to be. Always talk in the tomorrow. For instance, if you are jobless, talk about jobs you can create, you’ve created or that of someone you know or heard about created. If you are a student, talk about your career, talents and great potentials you will end up feeding from in future. If you’re a career person, talk about your promotion, your businesses and possible contracts. And if you don’t have money at the moment or passing through some challenges, don’t talk about it. Build a strong positive mental attitude and you will be surprise how it will influence everything that has your identity.

I was wondering how this ONE MORE SECRET could be instrumental to your success until I looked back into my life from the last two years when I was commissioned to active service in the Ministry of Motivation by God Himself. From that day henceforth, my facebook updates changed, diction changed, association changed, inspiration flowed in and lives in my sphere of contact began to leap for joy. This is to mean, if this secret worked miracles for me, it can as well work much more wonders for you.

What You Need to Know About Blogging

Posted on Updated on

Blogosphere
Blogging is not a copy and paste affair. Blogging is a noble career which should only be left for people who have the ability and passion to write. Everybody must not be a blogger or better put, you must not blog about news or events to be successful. There are several niches you could blog about. If you don’t have legal access to news and events there’s no point blogging on those niches.

You could do something more valuable with your time than spread deadly rumours on the internet simply because you want to get traffic on your site. My dear, that’s not all there is about the blogging industry. Blogging is much more than making money from traffics or pay per click, it is an online platform for solving problems.

If you’re new to blogging or wish to join later please ask questions. I have over 50 creative niches you could blog on. That’s to say you can still make a name for yourself without involving in copy and paste.

Don’t join the rumour mongers who only stain the image of the blogging profession.

Best Quotes on Creativity

Here are life-changing
quotes on creativity from Emenike Emmanuel, the young Nigerian who assist thousands of people around the world become entrepreneurs of distinction. He’s the Executive Director of Emchis Motivational Network.

“Creativity makes a whole lot of things in this world very easy to achieve. With it you pay less for the things you need to get going in life, and with it also you maximize profit and of course make a name in your time. I’m yet to see a man who was creative that the world never stood at his revelation.”
~ Emenike Emmanuel

“Creativity increases your height of maturity. It makes men who thought you don’t really count call you lord, and of course seek your counsel.”
~ Emenike Emmanuel

“You don’t necessarily need to know everything but just few things you are wholesomely talented at can turn you into a book of motivation for others to learn of.”
~ Emenike Emmanuel

“Innovation is the spice of life.”
~ Emenike Emmanuel

Plan Your Way to the Top: The Biggest Choice You Can Ever Make in Life and How to do it

Posted on Updated on

Plan Your Way to the Top: The Biggest Choice You Can Ever Make in Life and How to do it

Not everyone is born to be a highflier in life but I’m yet to see anyone who dared enough at lofty places and never got there. Although the journey to greatness is littered with challenges ready to pull one down but not a single person who planned well ahead of time was recorded to have missed hitting the zenith. The major reason why most men remain too long at the ground floor has always been the fear of height. Isn’t it ridiculous to mention that greater percentage of people who prayed to God for ‘lifting’ is afraid of heights? Okay, how far do you think taking it SOFTLY will take you in life?

One of the best choices of yours today that will of course yield a tremendous increase in your future are the plans you made. Begin to plan now, and be radical about it. I have said it before and will continue to say it again that a man who cannot plan for his future has nothing to live for. If you say he does, what will he wake up the next day doing? Roaming the street, causing havocs, blocking spaces, and arguing the unnecessary? Bullshit! That’s not what we plan to see in our tomorrow.

The Best Choices

If you wish to be great you must be meticulous and radical in your plans. You must be sure you are not giving away your most valuable asset – TIME, to the wrong person(s). You must be sure you are not shifting to do tomorrow things you’ve got the abilities to do today. And you must be sure you don’t start any business you do not have passion for, and will not be committed to have it transcend to second and many more generations. I have never ceased to tell business owners who care to listen that there’s no justification for being buried in the mediocrity of starting businesses that will begin and end with them. If they do, it will be quite difficult for their posterities to forgive them. This simple word of advice has helped thousands of people who visit my blog to ask themselves serious questions about their industries, the product they promote and the kind of services they offer. For instances; “in the next 10 years, will I still derive satisfaction doing this same business of mine? Or what new trends of business can I likely connect to it to enhance its acceptability in the market?” Those who did ask have received tremendous response from me.

Anyone who has made conscious decision to plan his or her way to the top is always careful to note his excesses, mistakes and areas of imperfection. He’s always eager to do and re-do whatever he sees earns him his biggest income, reputation and value. Such a person does not take chances at limiters engineered to short-circuit his thinking speed. One of the best choices the person makes is to be down-to-earth to see positive changes take place in the lives of people he or she comes across on daily basis.

How to do it

However, planning your way to the top can’t be complete until you have devised new means and strategies to make people depend on you genuinely, if not for everything but for important ingredients of life, for instance; their happiness, care, financial supply, advice, heart-mending etc. Can you build yourself to a point that before people invest they must enquire of your advice, not because you are their Boss but because you have a wealth of knowledge very necessary to their excellence in business? Do you believe you can do that? Ehhhhh…… Of course I know you can but in case it still seems difficult to you, here are simple things you must do:

 Discover your talent(s)
 Develop a new skill
 Build on the old skills
 Master your skills and talents
 Work harder than everyone in the industry you are passionate about
 Increase your resourcefulness
 Talk like an expert even when you are on the making
 And never take the credit for all your successes. Push it to God.

To become someone who can never be ignored, you must have your MIND MAP boldly spelt out during conversation. It is at this revelation that the world arises.

Those who made adequate plans and were ready to invest all that were needed to make it work in the last 10 years are not crawling on the floor today. They are the highfliers we are celebrating in the society today. But one thing is certain, and that has always been my biggest joy that no one and I mean NO ONE who dared it that never got it. The very license you have to enjoy tomorrow is embedded in the ways you planned your today. Remember what Warren Buffet said that “Investors of tomorrow will not profit from yesterday’s growth.” Make your best choice NOW.

Top 50 Job Interview Questions and How to Answer Them

Top 50 Job Interview Questions and How to Answer Them

In Emchis Consulting it has always being my joy to see you become successful in your career. Today, I have just finished compiling 50 Job Interview Questions you are likely going to be expecting in any job interview, be it in any part of the world and how you will respond to it. In case you are planning to go for any job interview or someone dear to you is going for job interview I recommend you read this post and invite others to do same.

Job interview

Here it goes. Enjoy it.

1. Tell me about yourself:
The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to work-related items
unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to the position you are interviewing for. Start with the item farthest back and work up to the present.

2. Why do you want to leave your current job?
Stay positive regardless of the circumstances. Never refer to a major problem with management and never speak ill of supervisors, co-workers or the organization. If you do,
you will be the one looking bad. Keep smiling and talk about leaving for a positive reason
such as an opportunity, a chance to do something special or other forward-looking reasons.

3. What experience do you have in this field?
Speak about specifics that relate to the position you are applying for. If you do not have specific experience, get as close as you can.

4. Do you consider yourself successful?
You should always answer yes and briefly explain why. A good explanation is that you have set goals, and you have met some and are on track to achieve the others.

5. What do co-workers say about you?
Be prepared with a quote or two from co-workers. Either a specific statement or a paraphrase will work. Jill Clark, a co-worker at Smith Company, always said I was the hardest workers she had ever known. It is as powerful as Jill having said it at the interview herself.

6. What do you know about this organization?
This question is one reason to do some research on the organization before the interview.
Find out where they have been and where they are going. What are the current issues and who are the major players?

7. What have you done to improve your knowledge in the last year?
Try to include improvement activities that relate to the job. A wide variety of activities can be mentioned as positive self-improvement. Have some good ones handy to mention.

8. Are you applying for other jobs?
Be honest but do not spend a lot of time in this area. Keep the focus on this job and what you can do for this organization. Anything else is a distraction.

9. Why do you want to work for this organization?
This may take some thought and certainly, should be based on the research you have done on the organization. Sincerity is extremely important here and will easily be sensed. Relate it to your long-term career goals.

10. Do you know anyone who works for us?
Be aware of the policy on relatives working for the organization. This can affect your answer even though they asked about friends not relatives. Be careful to mention a friend only if they are well thought of.

11. What kind of salary do you need?
A loaded question. A nasty little game that you will probably lose if you answer first. So, do not answer it. Instead, say something like, That’s a tough question. Can you tell me the range for this position? In most cases, the interviewer, taken off guard, will tell you. If not,
say that it can depend on the details of the job. Then give a wide range.

12. Are you a team player?
You are, of course, a team player. Be sure to have examples ready. Specifics that show you often perform for the good of the team rather than for yourself are good evidence of your team attitude. Do not brag, just say it in a matter-of-fact tone. This is a key point.

13. How long would you expect to work for us if hired?
Specifics here are not good. Something like this should work: I’d like it to be a long time. Or as long as we both feel I’m doing a good job.

14. Have you ever had to fire anyone? How did you feel about that?
This is serious. Do not make light of it or in any way seem like you like to fire people. At the same time, you will do it when it is the right thing to do. When it comes to the organization versus the individual who has created a harmful situation, you will protect the organization.
Remember firing is not the same as layoff or reduction in force.

15. What is your philosophy towards work?
The interviewer is not looking for a long or flowery dissertation here. Do you have strong feelings that the job gets done? Yes. That’s the type of answer that works best here. Short and positive, showing a benefit to the organization.

16. If you had enough money to retire right now, would you?
Answer yes if you would. But since you need to work, this is the type of work you prefer. Do not say yes if you do not mean it.

17. Have you ever been asked to leave a position?
If you have not, say no. If you have, be honest, brief and avoid saying negative things about the people or organization involved.

18. Explain how you would be an asset to this organization
You should be anxious for this question. It gives you a chance to highlight your best points as they relate to the position being discussed. Give a little advance thought to this relationship.

19. Why should we hire you?
Point out how your assets meet what the organization needs. Do not mention any other candidates to make a comparison.

20. Tell me about a suggestion you have made
Have a good one ready. Be sure and use a suggestion that was accepted and was then considered successful. One related to the type of work applied for is a real plus.

21. What irritates you about co-workers?
This is a trap question. Think real hard but fail to come up with anything that irritates you. A short statement that you seem to get along with folks is great.

22. What is your greatest strength?
Numerous answers are good, just stay positive. A few good examples:
Your ability to prioritize, Your problem-solving skills, Your ability to work under pressure, Your ability to focus on projects, Your professional expertise, Your leadership skills, Your positive attitude .

23. Tell me about your dream job.
Stay away from a specific job. You cannot win. If you say the job you are contending for is it, you strain credibility. If you say another job is it, you plant the suspicion that you will be dissatisfied with this position if hired. The best is to stay genetic and say something like:
A job where I love the work, like the people, can contribute and can’t wait to get to work.

24. Why do you think you would do well at this job?
Give several reasons and include skills, experience and interest.

25. What are you looking for in a job?
See answer # 23

26. What kind of person would you refuse to work with?
Do not be trivial. It would take disloyalty to the organization, violence or lawbreaking to get you to object. Minor objections will label you as a whiner.

27. What is more important to you: the money or the work?
Money is always important, but the work is the most important. There is no better answer.

28. What would your previous supervisor say your strongest point is?
There are numerous good possibilities:
Loyalty, Energy, Positive attitude, Leadership, Team player, Expertise, Initiative, Patience, Hard work, Creativity, Problem solver

29. Tell me about a problem you had with a supervisor
Biggest trap of all. This is a test to see if you will speak ill of your boss. If you fall for it and tell about a problem with a former boss, you may well below the interview right there. Stay positive and develop a poor memory about any trouble with a supervisor.

30. What has disappointed you about a job?
Don’t get trivial or negative. Safe areas are few but can include:
Not enough of a challenge. You were laid off in a reduction Company did not win a contract, which would have given you more responsibility.

31. Tell me about your ability to work under pressure.
You may say that you thrive under certain types of pressure. Give an example that relates to the type of position applied for.

32. Do your skills match this job or another job more closely?
Probably this one. Do not give fuel to the suspicion that you may want another job more than this one.

33. What motivates you to do your best on the job?
This is a personal trait that only you can say, but good examples are:
Challenge, Achievement, Recognition etc.

34. Are you willing to work overtime? Nights? Weekends?
This is up to you. Be totally honest.

35. How would you know you were successful on this job?
Several ways are good measures:
You set high standards for yourself and meet them. Your outcomes are a success. Your boss tells you that you are successful

36. Would you be willing to relocate if required?
You should be clear on this with your family prior to the interview if you think there is a chance it may come up. Do not say yes just to get the job if the real answer is no. This can create a lot of problems later on in your career. Be honest at this point and save yourself future grief.

37. Are you willing to put the interests of the organization ahead of your own?
This is a straight loyalty and dedication question. Do not worry about the deep ethical and philosophical implications. Just say yes.

38. Describe your management style.
Try to avoid labels. Some of the more common labels, like progressive, salesman or consensus, can have several meanings or descriptions depending on which management expert you listen to. The situational style is safe, because it says you will manage according
to the situation, instead of one size fits all.

39. What have you learned from mistakes on the job?
Here you have to come up with something or you strain credibility. Make it small, well intentioned mistake with a positive lesson learned. An example would be working too far ahead of colleagues on a project and thus throwing coordination off.

40. Do you have any blind spots?
Trick question. If you know about blind spots, they are no longer blind spots. Do not reveal any personal areas of concern here. Let them do their own discovery on your bad points. Do not hand it to them.

41. If you were hiring a person for this job, what would you look for?
Be careful to mention traits that are needed and that you have.

42. Do you think you are overqualified for this position?
Regardless of your qualifications, state that you are very well qualified for the position.

43. How do you propose to compensate for your lack of experience?
First, if you have experience that the interviewer does not know about, bring that up: Then, point out (if true) that you are a hard working quick learner.

44. What qualities do you look for in a boss?
Be generic and positive. Safe qualities are knowledgeable, a sense of humor, fair, loyal to subordinates and holder of high standards. All bosses think they have these traits.

45. Tell me about a time when you helped resolve a dispute between others.
Pick a specific incident. Concentrate on your problem solving technique and not the dispute you settled.

46. What position do you prefer on a team working on a project?
Be honest. If you are comfortable in different roles, point that out.

47. Describe your work ethic.
Emphasize benefits to the organization. Things like, determination to get the job done and work hard but enjoy your work are good.

48. What has been your biggest professional disappointment?
Be sure that you refer to something that was beyond your control. Show acceptance and no negative feelings.

49. Tell me about the most fun you have had on the job.
Talk about having fun by accomplishing something for the organization.

50. Do you have any questions for me?
Always have some questions prepared. Questions prepared where you will be an asset to the organization are good. How soon will I be able to be productive? And what type of projects will I be able to assist on?

TOP BUSINESS BOOKS EVERY BUDDING ENTREPRENEUR MUST READ suggested by INDUSTRY EXPERTS

Posted on Updated on

Compiled by: Emenike Emmanuel

Business Books

To help budding entrepreneurs become more successful in the choice of career they have chosen for themselves I have asked my friends who are experts in the industry of Human Capacity Development to suggest Business Books they think will be beneficial to budding entrepreneurs and why they think these books will be of immense benefit. Those of them who responded before this article was compiled made these powerful suggestions.

Here are what they said:

Emenike Emmanuel
CEO, Emchis Consulting

Emenike Emmanuel suggested that his No.1 best business book for budding entrepreneurs is The Holy Bible. According to Emenike Emmanuel, the founder/CEO of Emchis Consulting, he believes that The Bible is not only a Spiritual Book it is also a Business Book inspired by God. From his findings, almost all of the Principles of Business Success that are being taught today in Business Schools are lifted from the Bible. In confirmation to this, read the following articles; Biblical Business Secrets part 1 and part 2.
You will learn the following from these links (part 1 & 2);
 Why you need a feasibility study before establishing your business as it was first taught us by God in Genesis 1: 2 where the Spirit of God was hovering and assessing the situation on ground before creation began.
 How to make deals creatively and why you don’t need to make it when you are hungry.
 The power of innovation as it was first initiated by Jacob.
 Why you must carefully consider risk but not allowing it to stop you.
 Best business wisdoms as was taught us by King Solomon.
 And many more.

Darlington Dofe Egwim
Founder, ALOT-LYRICS EDUTAINMENT (ALE)
Darlington Dofe Egwim suggested “GOALS” by Brian Tracy for budding Entrepreneurs
According to Darlington Dofe, he made it clear that the best business book every budding entrepreneur must read is “GOALS” by Brian Tracy. And the following were the reasons for his suggestion;
 It will unlock the entrepreneurial giant in you.
 It will help you take charge of your entrepreneurial career.
 It will help you create your own business.
 It will help you measure your success step-by-step.
 And finally, it will help you become an expert in your entrepreneurial field.

Ifeanyi Anyanwu
Business Growth Strategist
Ifeanyi suggested 5 Powerful Books that every budding entrepreneur whose interest is to hit excellence as a target must read. He was also careful to list out wonderful reasons why he thinks that these business books will be of great benefit to budding entrepreneurs.
1. THE NEW RULES of ENTREPRENEURSHIP by Dr Rob Yeung
Why Ifeanyi Anyanwu Suggested “The New Rules of Entrepreneurship” by Dr Rob Yeung:
 This is a book that will show you how to turn your passion into profit, create your business concept, find customers and make money, and of course grow your business.

2. THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SELLING by Brian Tracy
Why Ifeanyi Anyanwu suggested “The Psychology of Selling” by Brian Tracy:

 This is a book about the principle of selling that shows you why people ever buy a product, how to sell creatively, 10 keys to success in selling, the power of suggestion and why people don’t buy a product, rather they buy solutions.

3. HOW THEY STARTED GLOBAL BRANDS by David Lester
Why Ifeanyi Anyanwu suggested “How They Started Global Brands” by David Lester:
 This is a book that helps you know how global brands like Apple, KFC, Coca-Cola Company etc all started, the secrets to each brand’s success, the challenges the founders faced, how the brand names were chosen and where the initial ideas came from.
This is really interesting to behold.

4. HOW TO WIN CUSTOMERS & KEEP THEM FOR LIFE by Michael LeBoeuf, PH.D
Why Ifeanyi Anyanwu suggested “How To Win Customers & Keep Them For Life” by Michael LeBouef:
 This is a book on how to win and sustain your customers who are the life-blood of your business. When they go your business falls. In fact, they are the No.1 Boss. He suggested it because it shows you why people buy once and never return, why people become strong and steady customers, how to turn angry customer into a happy and satisfied one and the 5 best ways to keep customers coming back.

5. SECRET OF SELF-EMPLOYMENT by Sarah and Paul Edwards
Ifeanyi Anyanwu suggested this book because it dwells much on surviving and thriving in the ups and downs of being your own Boss. “Secrets of Self-Employment” by Sarah and Paul Edwards is a book that will help you develop the confidence, motivation and self-discipline to succeed, methods to assess your personal strengths and weaknesses, get the world to take you seriously and how to overcome uncertainty, fears and self-doubt.

Jephter Akaehie
CEO, Power Edge Consulting

Jephter Akaehie suggested “100 UNBREAKABLE LAWS OF BUSINESS SUCCESS” by Brian Tracy.
He suggested this business book because he considers it a “Business Prophetic Manual”. Jephter said; “it turned my business life around and I believe it can do same for every budding entrepreneur.”

David Okorie
Founder, Reality Power Talk

“I think the best business book I can suggest for budding entrepreneurs is “BUSINESS AT THE SPEED OF THOUGHT” by Bill Gates.”

HOW MY BACKGROUND HELPED IN MOULDING MY CREATIVE ABILITY AS A WRITER (Interview with Okoro Chinedu Vincent)

Posted on

(Interview with Okoro Chinedu Vincent)

My name is Emenike Emmanuel, the Executive Director of Emchis Consulting, the business development segment of Emchis Motivational Network. I am a professional blogger and writer, and most importantly I love helping people become business owners either by acquiring a new skill, maximizing their old skills or earning from their natural abilities – Talent. This I have been able to achieve on this blog where I concentrate on giving you the Best Business and Career Advice. As a Motivational Speaker and Entrepreneur I have helped on different levels in helping young people remain fired-up to achieve their God-given purpose in life.

Today, as part of my vision statement to bring to you my most valued reader the most inspiring stories and experiences from the best people in the world, I have my Guest today as Okoro Chinedu Vincent. Okoro Chinedu Vincent is one of those young and vibrant Nigerians you can’t afford to miss reading his inspiring stories. Okoro Chinedu Vincent is a talented writer whose works has flown beyond the borders of Africa. He’s so smart especially when pen and paper are involved that even the smartest writers can’t resist him .He has been featured in both local and international anthology. One of the recent anthology his poem was featured is the ‘Nelson Mandela Poetry Collaboration’ which will be live online on 30th of April, 2014.

Chinedu 2

Without further delay let me open up the interview but in case you want to contact him to order his books in bulk, to speak at your event, to coach you or partner with his dreams and visions, please scroll down to the end of this interview – all his contact details are fully spelt out.
You are welcome to this interview with Okoro Chinedu Vincent.

Emenike: Sir, can you please introduce yourself to our audience? Tell us about your background.
Chinedu: Well,my name is Okoro Chinedu Vincent. I was born as a twin into the family of Mr/Mrs W ilfred Okoro from Ndianiche Uwakonye Arondizuogu in Onu-Imo Local Government Area of Imo state. My family background is nothing to write home about because I came from a struggling family that managed to survive. In fact things became worst when my father sold his lorry. To eat, to pay house rent, to pay school fees and to live comfortable was not that easy for us.

Emenike: Going by what you said about your background and the level of success I’ve seen you achieve today, I am meant to believe you came from a poor background but you never allowed your back remain on the ground?
Chinedu: Yes

Emenike: So what was the biggest inspiration/motivation your background gave you?
Chinedu: It made me start to thinking positively on how to redeem my family and her image (which I’m optimistic is meant to be glorious) and myself from this shackle of not living comfortably in life. In fact, there were lots of challenges for me then especially as one who came from a poor family background. It is like a person that was born and nothing to survive with and people around will keep on asking this question how will he survive while others are saying let them see how will survive? All these made me believe as a child then that coming from a poor family lures more controversies than one could imagine because some people have already concluded that I wasn’t going to make it in life. Those obnoxious beliefs against me gave me an impression that I was standing in this world alone. So to prove them wrong, I started working hard to see that what people said about my family will not stand like a prophecy. Today, I can boldly say that those misconceptions some people had about my family’s future was a great force of motivation to work hard in life right from childhood.

Emenike: What were some of the activities you engaged yourself in in the past to become the great person you are so far?
Chinedu: I started working properly to support myself when I was in my Junior Secondary 3 class. Emenike, you know it is very funny to share all these things I did in life before getting to this stage **laughs**. However, since you have asked, I will share some. Honestly, I did a lot of things which if I start telling people now….they will find it difficult to believe. Beside our house then, was this hospital precisely St Anthony’s Hospital and Mortuary, Aba, meanwhile I grew up in Aba. I normally wash ambulance which I was paid Two Hundred Naira (N200) per ambulance I washed. I also joined Canopy Rental Company in some of their weekend outings. I was a part of a marching band group in my church where we had the privilege to attend some paid programs that are not always regular. I sold par-boiled groundnut at the front of our house. I was a part of some local drama clubs in their local outings in churches which we were paid a token and sometimes, we went for a free outing. You see, my job experiences are so numerous **laughs** However, it has all played a role in sharpening my seat of imagination that gave rise to most of my intellectual materials today.

Emenike: I know you to be an Author, I have come across so many of your intellectual materials but for the purpose of emphasis and for our audience readers, tell us how far you’ve gone as a Writer?
Chinedu: Nice question… **smiles** I have been in the writing field professionally for more than two years now. I write novels, plays, poems, essays, short-stories etc. Some of my poems and essays have been featured in both local and international anthology. One of the recent anthology my poem was featured is the ‘Nelson Mandela Poetry Collaboration’ which will be live online on 30th of April. One of my book titled ‘Now I Know’ was published recently by Kingstar Digital Publishing and can be accessed online in these online stores including, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple iBookstore, etc.

Emenike: What inspiration(s) gave rise to most of your books?
Chinedu: Contemporary issues such as poverty, prostitution, killing, sorcery, terrorism, moral decadence, family disorderliness, wickedness, child abuse, hatred, hostility and other spiritual things happening in the world are sources of inspiration to all my books.

Emenike: Why did you choose writing as a Career despite the fact that the reading culture of Nigerians and Africa who are your primary target are not yet fully developed?
Chinedu: Choosing writing as a career was not a mistake and can never be. Before I go ahead to buttress my point I must make it clear to everyone who is either listening to us or reading this interview that Okoro Chinedu Vincent didn’t come into the writing profession because I saw people making money from it. In fact, mere looking at the poor reading culture in Nigeria one would be discouraged to write and this was one of the contributing rationales that made me stop writing for more than two years. What I’m doing today and the ones I’m yet to do were as a result of a dream I had years back that made me continue with the writing profession. And what was this dream? A man came to my dream and he gave me a published book and when I looked at the Author’s name to my greatest surprise it was my name boldly inscribed on it. He asked me to take the book that it was mine and I collected it. When I woke up the next morning, I was reinforced to write; inspiration became so fresh in me, in fact that morning I started writing a new book. Notwithstanding the poor reading culture in Nigeria I still choose writing because that was what destiny is saying. Destiny is saying that I have been called to write and that’s all.

Emenike: Your inspirations and choice are superb. So tell us, what role have you played to boost the reading culture of the African Child?
Chinedu: The reading culture of the African child is of immense importance to me and I will do everything within my powers to support this noble cause. I am also using this media to call on all parents and teachers to tell their children the importance of reading and writing. Currently, we have a plan on the processing speed lane whose primary focus is to bring all writers in this State under an umbrella so as to work as a team in achieving this great vision. I believe with God being with us we will achieve it.

Emenike: What role do you think Writers play or should play in boosting or stabilizing the National Economy?
Chinedu: There are many ways writers can contribute to the national economy. It is the duty of writers to criticize and sarcastically write against bad government either by fiction or non-fiction. Their writings will help to educate and enlighten the citizens of the country to stand against bad government and also make the government to sit up. When all these are achieved, I believe the national economy will be improved immensely. So, writers has a vital role to play in the growth of our national economy, and to an extent, we writers are playing our roles dutifully.

Emenike: As a speedily evolving Superstar in the literary art with an Eagle’s eye, what do you think are the challenges most writers are faced with in Sub-Sahara Africa? And what’s your suggestion in curbing them?
Chinedu: There are numerous challenges facing writers in sub-Sahara Africa. The major one is piracy. Piracy has made some writers to drop their pen. Piracy has rendered many writers useless. This is a place where you see a writer of more than two powerful books in the market and he will have nothing to write home about. This is a case where ‘monkey dey work while baboon dey chop’ (this is Nigerian Pigin). After toiling day and night to write a standard book and somebody from nowhere will get a copy of the book and reproduce it in a large quantity and start selling it in a cheap price thereby hindering the original book to sell. In fact it is a common thing in sub-Sahara Africa especially in Nigeria. And it seems that the Government is not doing anything to curb this piracy of a thing.

This is the high time people stood against piracy because, it’s inhuman. For instance, I made it as a point of duty not to buy a pirated book in my life even if it is sold for $0.4 and I want other people to join me in doing it. Also government should take it as a vital priority of checking pirated books in the market and most especially, schools should stand against using pirated books in their respective schools. I think with these measures, piracy will be curbed entirely in Nigeria and Sub-Sahara Africa at large so that writers will start reaping the fruit of their pen.

Emenike: This is very fantastic. Your decision is great indeed; I wish the change will start from all writers. So tell us, who are your Mentors and/or Role Models as a Writer?
Chinedu: As far as writing career is concern, I have adored Chimamanda Adichie Ngozi as my role model. This is a woman, if I look at her achievements literary; I’m motivated to work hard. Other role models are Margaret Atwood, Late Pa Chinua Achebe, Nnedi Okorafor, Wole Soyinka, Chika Unigwe, Helon Habila, Chibundu Onuzo and few others remaining.

Chinedu 1

Emenike: Every writer has his or her own peculiarity that endears him or her to the audience. This is what we call Unique Selling Proposition (USP) in business. So, what do you think is your own unique selling proposition?
Chinedu: I have written books that every man must read before dying. My books are catchy and each page you open has a message to pass. They are very interesting that readers are aroused to turn the next page as they read from it. So I think, these are the charismas that made me a special writer to my fans.
Emenike: What ways do you intend to give back to the society – especially the less privileged? Most people I have interviewed on this blog told me about their foundations and some who have not started any prayed that one day they will. Are you also a party to this?
Chinedu: For now, I’m still contemplating something beneficial I will give back to the public.

Emenike: From your own philosophy about success, at what stage do you consider a Writer to be successful?
Chinedu: For me, a successful writer is one who sells one thousand copies of his/her book on daily basis **laughs**. When a writer has all he/she wants at call and beck, when a writer is so famous that people would wish to see him or her flesh and blood. For me, this is the way I see a successful writer.

Emenike: What ways do you intend to get your books to the market, especially this powerful one “NOW I KNOW”?
Chinedu: My intellectual materials are already in the digital print (ebook) as published by Kingstar Digital Publishing but for fast accessibility you can buy it online at the following online stores using these links; Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and noble, Apple iBookstore etc

Emenike: What marketing strategy earns you your highest level of income as an established Author?
Chinedu: Well, like I told you earlier, my biggest motivation as a writer is not in how much it earns me but how many lives I can touch through it. So, I have not been careful to observe which of the strategies I have applied in the past and still applying earns me my highest return but so far so good, my marketing strategies have always been effective.

Emenike: What’s your advice for young people who may want to become very great in life?
Chinedu: My advice for young people who may want to become very great in life is that they should not allow their dream for greatness to die in vain. They should also not allow their present condition to weigh their dreams down. Most especially, they should not talk about their greatness on their lips but they should work it out so that people will talk about it. They should also believe and trust in God always because He is the maker of man. Lastly, whoever that wants to be great have 100% chance of becoming great.

Emenike: From the way you’ve sounded I can see a great height of sincerity in your eyes in helping young people realise their destiny like you’ve done yours in the field of writing. So tell us, for some hours now I have been with you, what can you tell the world about Emenike Emmanuel, the Founder and CEO of Emchis Consulting?
Chinedu: Emenike Emmanuel is such a person that has a great vision and not only having this vision to be great but, he is focused, hardworking, enduring in actualizing the vision. I must confess that being with him for some hours now, I see a person that is going somewhere beyond man’s imagination and in no distant time to come, the world will experience the emergence of a world changer and the world changer is no other person than EMENIKE EMMANUEL!

Emenike: What ways do you think we can go in raising the bar of excellence in this blog so that Emchis Consulting will become the most visited blog in the world?
Chinedu: To raise the bar of excellence of this blog, Emchis Consulting, you should maintain frequent online presence, post valuable facts and most especially, rub minds together with some other professional bloggers in the world.

Top Ways to Becoming More Productive in the Work Place

Posted on

The difference between men of activity and men of productivity is in the
measure of jobs left undone after the day was over.

The inspiration to write this article came while I was walking down to
the office in the morning. I pondered over it then and said to myself;
“Boy! Let’s see how productive you will be today.” The bitter truth is
that they are days so disgusting that we end up wet and weak yet not
accomplishing much. But can I tell you that it isn’t natural… That is
to mean; you can either choose to be productive or not.

One of the key factors I have observed that distinguish the Rich from
the Poor is that the Rich are men of productivity while the Poor are men
of activity. In the neutral sense of it there’s nothing wrong with
activity but how come it has always stopped the average man from ever
becoming as wealthy as he wanted?

I didn’t bore myself today by setting unrealistic goals, I was straight
and simple to set three goals which I insisted to see I did finish it
before coming back. I had in my To-do-list a proposal to compose for my
Motivational Business Series among others and I’m glad I did today.
That’s what it means to be productive.

What are the benefits for being productive?

Being productive is the best thing anyone can do. When you are
productive as a subordinate you manifest the result of law of
attraction. It makes you a favourite staff, a reliable boss and most
importantly, the spotlight will always be on you. People tend to run to
you each time a work is required to be done fast and in good condition.

Having watered your mind to find or increase your interest in being
productive, I think the time is right to disclose to you the 6 Ways to
Become Productive.

Let’s get down on them so that we could do something else.

1. Recognize God

Of course this is not a religious sermon but whatever we do in this life
without God is prone to fail. God may not be asking you to let Him do
the job but you must recognize His Sovereignty and Supremacy.

“Our service to God is not to provoke His blessings but to fulfill His
purpose for creating us.”
~ Anya Oko

See God as the first.

2. Focus on your strength

One of the reasons why most Entrepreneurs find it difficult to be
productive is because they start business in fields or industries they
have no passion and thus strength in.

How can one discover his strength?

To find the area of your strength discover the area of your true
passion. And how can you find this area of your passion? Ask yourself of
things you can willingly do without asking for a pay check.

Any time you stop focusing on your strength you are bound to be very
unproductive. So, to become productive, focus on your strength.

3. Don’t sabotage yourself

So many people are the root cause of their problems. They intentionally
sell themselves to their enemies through their characters.

Don’t lie to yourself. Don’t be your own enemy.

4. Learn to work as a team

Be a team player. After you’ve learnt every other thing you must learn
to work with a group. Don’t always believe you can achieve much going
solo.

5. Learn to delegate responsibility

You can’t be everywhere at the same time and you can’t do everything all
alone. You’ve got to let others mind the next post while you focus on
someting else.

6. Be yourself

Don’t fake who you are not. Be original! Understand your limit.

Productivity is all it takes to be productive. Like begat like. The more
productive you become, the more likely you will get the opportunity to
be more productive.

Why 2014 is Considered the Year of The Entrepreneurs

Posted on Updated on

Why 2014 is Considered the Year of The Entrepreneurs

2014 has been globally considered by Experts and successful entrepreneurs around the world as the year of the entrepreneurs. This, as I discovered was because of the great number of successful entrepreneurs who are springing off from all works of life. When I conducted my research about entrepreneurs and the business world I came to realise few points that made this year 2014 to be considered the year of the Entrepreneurs by experts. These things are;

1. 2013 produced 138 women as billionaires but 2014 produced 172 billionaires, indicating that 42 women joined the club of billionaires in 2014.
2. In 2013 we had an aggregate net worth of the billionaires to be $5.4 trillion but in 2014 we had an aggregate net worth of billionaires to be $6.4 trillion, indicating an increase of $1 trillion.
3. 2014 has recorded 268 new entrants of billionaires which includes the two gorgeous guys of WhatsApp, Jan Koum and Brian Acton I wrote about in my previous post titled; 5 Lessons I Learnt From the Transaction Between Facebook and WhatsApp.
4. In 2014 Sheldon Adelson joined the top ten billionaires in the world for the first time after adding $11.5 billion to his previous net worth.
5. In 2014 Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook Inc. jumped from $15.2 billion of net worth to $28.5 billion.
6. For the first time in history our own Aliko Dangote, founder of Dangote Group, a man I respect and hold with high esteem so much joined the Top 25 billionaires in the world.
7. And finally, for the first time in history Algeria, Luthuania, Tanzania and Uganda produced her billionaires in dollar. Of a truth, there’s no doubt that the year 2014 so far has really being a blessing to entrepreneurs.

Top 7 Reasons Why You Can’t Do Without a Business Plan

Posted on Updated on

A business plan is as important as the success of the business is. Any entrepreneur who wishes to make it big in business must not invest a dire into any business of interest without first constructing a profitable business plan. Of course you know that a Business Plan is like a roadmap leading to the success of the business. However, you don’t need to spend all your time hoping to write the most articulated business plan – just do it. Write something; at least more than half for small business owners but for great conglomerates, make sure you did all the work from day one.

You can do it. You can write a profitable business plan, but in a situation you don’t trust yourself enough you can always count on us here at Emchis Consulting for guidelines.
For seven top reasons you can’t do without a business plan and that’s what I have got here. Enjoy it.
7 Reasons Why You Need a Business Plan

1. Business Plan makes you stay focused and on track

I have a popular slogan with me “that the focused attitude of an Aircraft is what keeps it going beyond the limiting gravitational force.” When you venture into business, things you never imagined that existed keeps popping into your imagination and if you lack a clear-cut plan of what you are in for and where you are going you may lose focus and start failing. If you want to know Entrepreneurs who lacked concentration go and check those who had no Business Plan.

2. A Business Plan offers you good assistance in setting the standard for accessing and evaluating your business

By taking your mind back to the day you first had that business idea(s), you will understand with me that the business you thought of was quite fascinating. If by any means something goes wrong in your absence, it is with the help of the Business Plan that people can correct the mistake made being in accordance with the vision of the Pioneer. I stand to be corrected that one of the reasons why so many businesses could not survive beyond the first generation owners is because they lacked solid and implemented Business Plans.

If there be a yardstick for measuring accuracy in staff performance in a company, an assessment tool for determining high-level performance in School systems and a limit of Right to offenders, I think we would have no heavy problem to contend with. Remember: Business Plan is a compilation of your Business Ideas in such a manner that it can deliver an optimum result of success. This makes it clear that we must not limit a Business Plan to only businesses. It must be extended to everything that makes us busy – that’s ‘busyness.’ It could be a talent, life goals or a profession. Just name it!

3. Adjustment and Readjustment where and when necessary can only be real in a business that had a Business Plan

To identify the place of error in a licking roof, you must search out for the pigeon-hole using the Building Plan. And until you find the Pigeon-hole in the Building Plan, you may succeed in spending your time in futility. With the help of a Business Plan you can be able to find out mistakes and business failures where and when necessary and within the limit of your knowledge or that of your hired Professionals offer solutions to ameliorate it.

4. Business Plan helps you build values and principles that will guild your company

The kind of product you are limited to trade on must be inculcated in your business plan. How you intend to convince customers must as well be part of the content of your business plan. And the class of customers you are out to serve, the value-rating you seek to acquire in the market, your innovative approach and the standard every workforce of the company must undertake in fulfilling the company’s vision must be strictly spelled out and followed in the Business Plan.
With this, you have acquired the unbending principle towards achieving business breakthrough and greatness.

5. Business Plan helps you recognize opportunities, identify risk, plan preventions and develop strategies to tackle any eventuality

Entrepreneurs who have a Business Plan for their business and apply it to the core are never easily tossed up and down by the prevailing societal issues at hand. It is this kind of people that Zig Ziglar referred to as Real Managers who get excited when their customers complain. Zig Ziglar has it that when customers complain, business owners and Managers ought to get excited because it is a huge opportunity for more business. Why would they get excited because they have just been reminded of their weaknesses and that’s a good opportunity to either subdue it or work on it?

Even before they walk into business, by the power of a good Business Plan, they have known what their possible opportunities for more business are, a limiting weakness that could stand their way, possible risks they must undertake to unveil the next success and of course have searched out means they could prevent the avoidable risks and strategies to tackle the unavoidable risks.
6. A Business Plan defines your products or services

It is in your Business Plan that you determine if your company will be focusing on delivering products (and what type of product?), services (and what type of services?) or products and services (and how this two can be combined optimally). To establish a firm that can’t fail so easily, you must seek to deliver services when selling your products.

If you don’t know how to start or what to sell, start by selling services and then grow into selling products. Once you’ve grown into selling products after services, you can go to think while your business goes ahead in gaining the market shares.
7. A Business Plan helps you channel your energy in the right direction and eliminate waste

Your Energy Bank Account has things that make it stocked up and things that make it glow red. The previous is the right investment of energy and the recent is the wrong investment of energy.

You may ask, how do people invest their energies wrongly? Yes! People do. They do that by taking uncalculated risk, by venturing into unpredicted success lane hoping that miracle will happen or luck will shine on them, by not studying the successful business pioneers, by working on assumptions and expectance of instant gratification. With a good Business Plan you can overcome this low-level mentality that has brought people unprincipled success.
If you have a good business plan which by professional look has been approved to last, you have no worry to worry if the business will pay or not. You simply know that you are in for great business.

How to Raise Money For Your Business Start up

How to Raise Money For Your Business Start-up

Do you have a profitable idea, a viable business plan or a qualitative feasibility study but do not have the capital to jump-start your business – I mean the business purported to transform your life for a lifetime? Okay! What would you think if I tell you that raising money for your business startup is as easy as the air we breathe? Would you believe that? I know you might doubt it but before the end of this article I’m optimistic that your doubts will no longer be there. In this article I will show you strategies that helped me raise money to publish my first book, buy my first personal computer and of course support my education in the tertiary institution. A few of the things I mentioned is to tell you how real these strategies of raising money for your business are. Oh! Did I forget to tell you that the money needed to furnish this blog, design and of course print my business card also came from these strategies? These strategies are what self-made millionaires first started with.

These strategies of raising money for your business startup have not only worked for me but also to as many as that have followed my daily teachings on facebook. Recently one of my facebook friends who is also a consultant asked me for permission to borrow some of my strategies so that he could share it in his upcoming Business Class, which I obliged. That’s to tell you that what I am here to teach you on this blog are not one of those theories no one has ever practiced but true key points thousands of people pay to listen to in a Business Summits.

More often than none, people have narrowed their mind to borrowing to start up a business which I regard as the poorest method of a man’s thinking. Successful and practicing businessmen will never suggest that you collect a loan to start up a business – even your worst enemy can’t ask you to do that. This is because most people who failed from the top of their entrepreneurial life to get grounded all had their business capitals as loans with interest they could not pay at the long run. The principle is; “stay self-funded as much as possible.” Never take a loan to start up a business, and if you must collect, make sure the interest rate is as low as possible.
How to Raise Money For Your Business Start Up
To raise money for your business start up, here are few things you must do;

1. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and every other thing shall be added unto you
2. Conserve more time than you use to. Only few would-be entrepreneurs know that Time is Money. In that case, don’t spend time otherwise you will never have it back instead invest it.
3. Work for a salary/wages
4. Get a part-time job
5. Begin a home-based business as another stream of income
6. Use salary advance for your start up if you are already employed
7. Raise your bar of excellence in the area of financial discipline
8. If you have a viable business plan and a well articulated and comprehensive feasibility study go for loan but be sure it has a low interest rate.

When you generate more income from any of the above strategies I stated above, begin by implementing it right away and you will see yourself flying on the wings of success.

Top Reasons Why Starting Your Business Part-Time is Good for You

Top Reasons Why Starting Your Business Part-Time is Good for You

Are you intending to embark on starting a new business from scratch or expanding your already existing business? Do you want to learn how starting a business part-time can help you avoid the risk of experiencing a fatal business failure? Do you want to know why most successful businesspeople started off first by working part-time? Or you want to know why I recommend that you start your business part-time first? Well, if you answered yes to all those questions, then I advice you read on because this article is specifically written for you.

In my previous post on How to Achieve Success Working Part-Time, I told us how to use the Magic of Part-Time in generating uncommon wealth. I also told you things you need to know about working part-time and if I can remember vividly, I promised to tell you Why I Suggest You Start Part-Time. Today, I have come to fulfill my promise but for clarity, I have titled it, “Top Reasons Why Starting Your Business Part-Time is good for you.” This article is poised to challenge you and of course unveil the secrets hidden for ages why some businesses hardly experience business downturn.
Enjoy it.

Record shows that 65 percent of Small and Medium scale enterprises close down after 3 years of start up and to a great extent this has being a great pool of headache to me. It was a part of my reasons why I didn’t want to become a successful entrepreneur alone but to help others become successful too. I came to realise that some of the reasons why these small and medium scale businesses went down the drain was because they never cared to test the ground upon which they sheepishly sow all the proceedings of their life. They did what I call ‘uncalculated risk’ and no wonder they crashed so easily. The consequence has to tell on them and no doubt, there’s no way they can outsmart it than start all over again. This is something that was avoidable if they had mastered the Act of Starting Part-Time.

If you want to achieve success early enough in life, I am of the opinion that you start part-time. For instance, you are in school but you wish to go into business after getting your first degree, I suggest you start part-time. If you are working on a full-time job now but wish to become a business owner in future, start part-time. Don’t quit your job too early until you have mastered the world of business to an extent, otherwise you may regret ever being in business. They are countless number of skills you will learn while working part-time. Not only will you learn those entrepreneurship skills, you will also have the liberty of less risk to test run your ideas if it has a market value, a trans-generational standard and lots more.

Notwithstanding all the great articles you see on this blog I am still working on it part-time although my part-time has produced more result than those who have invested all their life in it.
Let me shock you…

Do you know that intelligent hiring companies are more willing to work with part-timers than they are ready to work with full-timers? With part-timers the employers save more money and still get the same result if not more than. This is because part-time workers are more conscious of time than full-time workers can ever be. Each day they have a goal they must meet to earn a pay which they must reach. Recently, in the US, employers are beginning to see into the potential profits in hiring part-time workers as a means of cutting cost by all measures.
Now, do you wish to become a successful entrepreneur? Listen to my instruction and start part-time. I wish to see you at the top. Thank you.

How Thinking ‘SERVICE’ Makes You Rich

How Thinking ‘SERVICE’ Makes You Rich

I n my previous post I told us How Thinking Money Makes You Poor, and today in this post I want to show you how thinking service can make you rich. So, do you really want to be rich or you are satisfied wishing it? Wishes don’t make people rich, instead, action does. And that action is this service I am about to show you. Once again I ask you, do you want to be rich? As if I don’t know – who doesn’t want to be rich? Of course everyone does but the poor can never be totally eliminated. This post today if rightly applied can add a dollar to your account. By this I mean to say that if you discover an area to serve, people will willingly pay you for it.

Jim Rohn, the American Business Philosopher said something from the Bible that amazed me. He said; “Service to many leads to great.” This is exemplified in the number of people that followed the ministry of Jesus Christ. Even after many have read this, some of them still undermine the power of service. Service, no doubt is the only channel through which we pay our rent here on earth and it is still the only reason for which money can leave your hand into mine and that of others. None can ever be rich by thinking money. Most times we are beclouded with this fantasy about money that thinking money, money, money will make us have it. Wake up my dear, the rich has always sought for a means to serve the poor, yet the poor still wonder why the rich are getting richer. Can’t you see they are ones serving you despite how rich they are? The day they get tired of serving you they are FIRED.

Experts have told us that 80 percent of the money generated in the world is controlled by 20 percent of the world population. And from the last time I checked, this twenty percent offer the greatest and most widely used services.

No matter how long you continue to think about money you may never have it. My own case was a glaring one. As much as I thought about money, I lacked the money even more. I never knew I was empowering my mind to work against my success. This is the case of most entrepreneurs today but thank God for this article that has come to change us; the way we think and the things we think on. Steve Jobs sought for a way to make computer more portable and digitalised so as to serve us better he built Apple computer. and the money came. Bill Gates sought for a way to simplify issues especially during calculation so as to serve the world better he gave us Microsoft and the money came. Richard Branson sought for a way to make travels in the air more convenient so that people can get value for their money and he gave us Virgin Airways. Aliko Dangote, the great man of the African community sought for a way to serve Africans better he gave us Dangote Group of companies that have continued to cater for our Cement, Salt, Sugar, Flour, Juice and Pasta needs and the money came. Okay, what of Mike Adenuga?- The giant man of Telecommunication in Africa. His decision to serve his people was his propelling force to compete favourably with MTN in a market that was already taken. Anyone that ever became rich had a way he served.

Before I finally drop my pen let me ask again, Are You Ready to Be Rich? If you are, then you should be thinking of new ways to serve your generation. There has never been any other better way of becoming rich than through service. Thinking Service Can Make You Rich if you know how to think it.
Thank and God bless you.

How to Become a Successful Motivational Speaker Speaking to Elders

How to Become a Successful Motivational Speaker Speaking to Elders

When granted/offered the privilege to speak to elders, it is a great opportunity you must never joke with. I know of great and talented Comedians who have lost every contact with the Government meetings in Nigeria simply because they misused this kind of opportunity and I also know of others who have repeatedly being invited to spice up every government’s meeting with some sort of comic relief because they maximized the first opportunity. Remember they said there’s no second chance to give a first impression, which is true. So, if you make it to speak before elders, whether in the traditional settings, in Church, in government or in business, here are things you must do and the ones you must never do in order to remain afloat in the industry of public speaking.

1. Never insult them in your speech

Yes. It is a taboo to insult elders especially here in Africa. Pick your words. It is better you are termed a poor speaker than to be termed an insulting speaker. At least they might think you don’t have wealth of knowledge on the topic offered you to speak on and may do better if given another topic. But in a situation you ended up insulting them because you had the platform, know it well that they will talk about you in the negative, and I hope you know what that means? It simply means, no business – doors closed.
2. Never tell them lies because you want to excite them or prove to them you are versatile

Nothing soils the reputation of a speaker like telling lies. I know you might be trying to excite them but don’t you think they will find out? What then becomes of your reputation if they find out? Elders can go as far as suing you when you tell them lies, especially the ones that has something to do with them.

3. Tell them what they need to hear (they are less driven by wants)

What they need to hear is the reason for which they invited you to speak. So in every speaking style you may want to employ, make sure you are telling them what they need to hear not what you want to talk about. You can ask them before mounting the podium. There’s no error in asking question. Ask the person that handed over the letter to you so that he can give you details of what your audience might be expecting so that you don’t end your speech regretting. Your joy as a motivational speaker is not because you have spoken well with powerful accent but in the audience being left motivated.

4. Make them forget their worries either by cracking jokes or addressing their pressing need

I have come to realize through many years of having dealings with elders that nothing sets them uneasy like their worries. And most of them especially the wealthy ones can do everything at their reach to get it out. In making elders forget their worries two things are involved. One is to crack jokes and another is to address their pressing need. Don’t tell me you can’t do any of this. If you can’t then you are not yet ready to be a Motivational speaker.

5. Learn to quote higher authorities they can’t refute their philosophies

Elders want to know how vast you are. There’s no other means of getting to know about quotes of authorities of diverse industries except through books. In that case, if you want to know what experts and elders have to say over a particular issue under discussion you must be a good reader – you must read books. Most importantly, search quotes of some elders who may likely be in the event, and as you speak, quote them. In a situation you can’t get their books or that of other elders they respect their philosophy Google it. The internet has made many things much easier for us today. One of the talented public speakers I learnt this strategy from was Niyi Adesanya of Nigeria. He uses this strategy when addressing Yoruba elders by quoting Pa Obafemi Awolowo.

6. Speak with confidence.

When speaking to elders don’t hide the genius in you. You don’t have a second chance to make the first impression. Do your homework very well. For me, sometimes I rehearse before a mirror, record my speeches with a phone so that I can listen to myself and I also ask my siblings how well I have performed.
The first day I spoke in a Church before my Dad, I prepared very well in the night and on that Sunday, I performed so excellently that he congratulated me with a bottle of wine and some other expensive gifts he wouldn’t have given me ordinarily.

7. Work with time
Elders know what time is than young people do, so when speaking to them stick to your timing. Don’t think you can always apologise for being late. Stick to the time allotted to you and be sure you exhausted your topic.

How to Become a Motivational Speaker Elders Will Love to Listen to

Before I go ahead to tell you the kind of Motivational Speakers elders will love to listen to let me tell you who a Motivational Speaker is. A Motivational Speaker can as well be called an Inspirational Speaker. It all depends on the title the person in focus wants to go by. A Motivational Speaker is a speaker who makes speeches intended to motivate or inspire an audience. Business organisations may require the services of a Motivational speaker to help the employees see the future of the business in a more positive dimension. With soft words of encouragement a Motivational speaker helps an audience especially that involving a business entity to be goal oriented.

Having said all that about who a Motivational Speaker is, and what he has to offer, let me tell you how you can become the kind of Motivational speaker elders will love to listen to. That’s to say that there are speakers, especially young motivational speakers elder dislike listening to and others they can spend their last card on flight ticket to hear them speak. Now, what makes the difference? Is that one of them being disliked do not have a peculiar story to share or that the speaker speaks in a manner inconsistent with what elders love to invest their time listening to? In few lines from now you will get to know why some young Motivational Speakers are preferred over the other when it has to do with speaking to elders.

Don’t forget that every audience has their own kind of message. I was once in a meeting where a young Motivational speaker was speaking to a crop of young students in a manner that should have being reserved to a Church congregation. And guess what? The response he got said it all.

How to Become a Successful Motivational Speaker Speaking to Elders

When granted/offered the privilege to speak to elders, it is a great opportunity you must never joke with. I know of great and talented Comedians who have lost every contact with the Government meetings in Nigeria simply because they misused this kind of opportunity and I also know of others who have repeatedly being invited to spice up every government’s meeting with some sort of comic relief because they maximize the first opportunity. Remember they said there’s no second chance to give first impression.

If you make it to speak before elders, whether in the traditional settings, in Church, in government or in business, here are things you must do and the ones you must never do in order to remain afloat in the industry of public speaking.

My Weekend Discovery of Crawling Businesses

Posted on

How to Stop Your Business From Crawling

I moved round the city yesterday to observe good number of companies and industries that have been in business for over 5 years and my discoveries were so amazing. Two of the last places I visited were a boutique along Mosque Street by Hospital Road and a Photograph/Video studio along Cameroun Road by Ube Street (all in Aba, Nigeria). The looks on the faces of the two owners of these businesses proved how frustrated they were.

When I threw few of my sampling techniques of identifying businesses that are crawling or that may likely crawl, I came to realise how far these businesses were behind the modern technology. Like the photograph studio I made mention of visiting, they were over 5 years behind where the technology is today. When others, I mean their competitors have gone into the use of digital cameras and computer system for professional editing they were still busy with their mechanical/analogue approach. Come to think of the signpost (an arrow indicating where their business is and what they had the capacity to offer) they had, it was mocking. I know that no reasonable person in his right senses will like to do business with such companies. The signposts are so unfriendly that it can send a potential customer on flight at the first sight.

However, something can still be done to revive those businesses and in few moments from now, I will be offering my solution if well implemented will help them bounce back to life and thus regain their customers’ loyalty and confidence.

So, is your business or that of someone you know experiencing any of those setbacks I cited above from my weekend discoveries? Here are things you must do to stop your business from crawling again.
How to Stop Your Business from Ever Crawling Again

1. Be observant of where the technology is at the moment

Customers will consider it an insult on their persons if they discover you sold to them an old tech with the current price tag. If they were so quite to reserve their comments bear it in mind they will never return again. Get to know what is in vogue at the moment that your customers may likely want. Spice those things into your services and you will continually land more prospects and of course returning customers too.

2. If possible, don’t let the world around you develop faster than you

To remain relevant both to your customers and in your industry you must develop alongside the technology. When your competitors are beginning to use computerized doors, join them. When they are beginning to use digital facilities, join them. And if you can, take the lead but in a situation you are not creative enough you can learn to follow well by incorporating two or three new technologies of your competitors. Don’t let the technology develop faster than you otherwise your competitors will push you out of the industry.

3. Look for one new technology you can invent

No matter how uncreative you think you are, there’s always a new thing you can do. There’s always a new technology you can embrace. What drag customers into your business most times for the first time might not be the wonderful referrals but the outlook of your business. Like I made mention of the ugly signpost I saw, what does yours look like? How creative is it? If you are to be the customer will you make a choice to go ahead with the purchase after sitting the signpost? I leave it to you to judge.

4. Always check out what your competitors are doing

This point looks similar to the one discussed above but here I want to cite something different. This point is for those who are afraid to take risk. The easiest way to avoid uncalculated risk is to watch your competitors more closely than they can ever watch themselves. For every action they took for the first 6 months watch out to see what the reactions of customers were. Don’t be in a haste to copy otherwise you might be copying a gambled decision of the business owners. Watch before you leap but don’t die watching. Copy professionally.

5. Ask relevant questions concerning your business

Most business owners are so carried away by the rigours and fantasy of business that they no longer care to ask people how they business is, what people think about them and how they can get better. Although asking question is necessary but not everyone is qualify to be asked. People like your competitors and novice are not worth asking.

6. Come for mentorship
Yes. I have been helping you all through my articles on a distant level but now I’m offering you an opportunity to present yourself and your business for mentorship on a closer relationship. It was for this course that I established Emchis Financial Empowerment Summit (EFES). It is on this platform that you ask me all sorts of questions relating to your business and career and you will receive instant reply within 24 hours. It is a group on FACEBOOK. Just Search for Emchis Financial Empowerment Summit (EFES) and you will find it. You can also like my page – http://www.facebook.com/emchis4noms

7 Kinds of People That Can Benefit From a Network Marketing Business

Network marketing business is not for everyone just like every other forms of business are not for everyone. It is a special kind of business that is ready to profit those who are ready to stake their best time and energy for it.

Those who thought that once they are into network marketing business otherwise known as MLM they are made for life are often those who get frustrated and drop out along the line.

In today’s post, I have come up with my latest research of the seven kinds of people who can benefit from a network marketing business. That you didn’t make it to these 7 kinds of people does not mean there’s no hope for you. No. There’s hope for you because it is very easy to join in these group of people.

Before I select people or I permit people to work with me in the distribution of the cosmetic product I market here in Nigeria, I weigh them using these 7 classes of people I am about to share with you today. And if any of them was able to make it to these list, then I can be sure the person will benefit from my business, the person won’t get frustrated along the line, and he/she will be more willing to work with me. In the other hand, if I realise that the passion with which he or she started is no longer there and of course it can’t be resurrected, I relief the person of the job.

Without further delay, let me bring to your notice these 7 kinds of people who can benefit from a Network Marketing Business.

People That Network Marketing Business can Make Rich

1. Those who have money but do not know where to invest their money
2. Those who have a dream, a vision or an idea of what to do to become rich but do not have the money to start up
3. Those who are already in business but lacks some necessary business skills (such as Sales skills) needed to make it big in business
4. Those who want to make new and credible contacts without having to force themselves on anybody
5. Those who like helping people
6. Those who need a part-time job or home-based business
7. Those who wants to know how I started my own Network Marketing Company

Do you have the money but don’t know where to invest the money? Are you afraid to risk your money on stocks? Are you wondering if the money you have right now can be multiplied to better your life? Then I urge you to come into Network Marketing Business.

Do you have a dream, a vision and a workable idea that can land you millions but don’t even have a dime for a startup? I urge you to come into network marketing business. In Network Marketing you are offered the privilege to meet different classes of people who derive joy in helping others succeed. Unlike other businesses where two persons in the same industry compete, Network Marketing business partners helps you succeed alongside with them.
And you know what? In Network Marketing you have the privilege to run it as a part-time or home-based business as it won’t interfere in any way with some other businesses you might be involved in.

Why am I suggesting Network Marketing Business (MLM)? Yes. Here is where you find people who your success is their concern not because they know you but because their success is connected to yours. So they will be more willing to help you succeed.
