Simple Qualities You Must Have Before You Can Start A Business

On my weekly (Thursdays) #SmallBizTalk Show, many questions was asked and among all, i did noticed some common ones and i think its better i treat them on this platform for others who have the mind of starting a business of their own can get answers to the same questions.

Starting a business is never an easy job, you have to put in your best with hard work and determination to make it work. Business is not something you start today and expect it to spill out millions into your account. You don't rush into starting a business simply because you've seen that your friend is riding a big car and you feel you can start same business like he does.

Starting a business of your own should be built on a solid passion which must be burning straight from your heart. You must love what you want to do with all your heart and not because of money, if you do it perfectly without focusing on money....your work will attract money to you. Don't ever go into any business with the motives of making fast money. If you do, your business may not survive up to 2 years because what motivates you is money and not the growth and success of your venture which should be your top priority.

Don't get me wrong, when i say money should not be your first motive in starting a business. But, you need to know that short cut to success will always cut your green opportunities short. You first need to set up a good shock-absorber and pillar which can carry and sustain your business, and you must be able to dish out valuable products and services to your customers. If your customers are happy with your business then be rest assured that money will start flowing in and your business will grow into a big corporations. Alhaji Dangote started small with a big dream and today that small dream has become a house hold name in Africa.

If you think you want to have a business, then think first if you can be able to sustain it. Here are few simple important personal qualities you need to find out before starting that business:

- What do i really want?
- Why do i want to start a business? - What is my passion?
- Am i ready face and handle the obstacles on the way?
- What value do i want to give out?
- Do i have the personality to run a business?
- Do i have the finance to get the business up or what resources do i need to start

These are few things you need to find out and provide answers to before you can say you want yo start a business. Entrepreneurs are risk takers, are ready to be your own boss? Whatever your decision may be, i want you to keep one thing in mind "Always dream big,think positive and have a proper plan"

Dream Big & Achieve It.

Customers The King Of Business.

In today's #SmallBizTalk, lets talk about the king of business. Venturing into a business is good and anybody can do that, but if you fail to negotiate with the decision makers ( customers ) them you are not ready. If you have true customers who are willing to buy your products and services then you are really in business. I do tell my clients on small business consulting that before you launch what ideas you have into the market,you need to first identify those that needs your services or products, what value will you add to their lives that will get them attracted to you and approve your business. Customers as the king of business are the ones to determine your stay in business, so find them and offer them the best and in-return you get extra-value (Money).

In business, customers research takes long time and patience to find enough who are willing to talk. Market research consultancies would charge you high fees to the job for you, but as a new starterup with a clear vision of where you want your business to be with concrete plan, you would be better off doing it yourself, just spend more time and do some market research by yourself, ask questions, visit places, go the the environment and find out what your target audience want and are saying about similar businesses.

Some questions you need to ask yourself are:

* Who are my customers? Do they have that characteristics to fit into the type of customers that your product or services will benefit?

* What are their buying style? What, how much, and how often do they buy?

* Why do they buy? Are the reasons customers say they buy with same reasons why you say they? E.g some customers just buy label names and not prestige. Fined out why?

* How much do they pay based on what the market is offering? Okay, how much will they be willing to pay for my products and services?

* What do they like or dislike about the current products and services? Can i be able to fill this gap and provide them with what they like?

Now, if you can judiciously give answers to these questions, you will be dinning with the kings of the market all the time without problem. Customers will be willing to stay online for numbers of hours just because you offer them the best. If no value is derived from from your products and services, your business will not go far. Your customers are the king of your business, so treat them well and give them good values if you you want extra-value. In business, if you develop an idea the next thing to do is to find out those that needs it.

Pursue a Passion Not Money.

Lots of people just want to go into business not because they have passion for what they want to do but because of the hype of entrepreneurs are millionaire. These set of people often end up crash landing within few months or a year of starting the business.

Have a passion and you will surely make money but thinking of making money only, you will not. That is simple. If you want to be your own boss ,you must think of providing solution thereby creating big business empire and when your solution can solve the problem of your target audience money will flow into your account. Entrepreneurs are not driven by money , but the love of what they do. They create value to the benefit of others and in return they receive extra-value.

Now ,think about this. If you don't genuinely enjoy or love what you are doing,how will you motivate yourself to keep on moving when the tide is high? The truth is any real entrepreneurs work based on their passion and can communicate it to their clients, the money will flow in without stress. Greed is not the same as passion, and if you don't have the passion and enthusiasm to run your business and deliver some unique ,you will run out of energy and will end up working for someone else.

Whatever you choose to do in your business,make sure you can get excited about it. Pursue your dream with passion and success will come.

The Elephant Rope (Belief)

Running a small business can be a
difficult task. Even some of the biggest and the most profitable
businesses around the world have
faced hardship in their early years of foundation, but they achieved success because they were determined to follow up based on their believe for success. . Here are inspiring stories of businesses which had to overcome hurdles before establishing themselves as global brands. Get motivated with this inspiring story:

A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp, and he spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by the use of chains. All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one
of their legs. As the man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely confused as to why the elephants
didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp. They could easily have done so, but instead they didn’t try to at all.

Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape. The trainer replied;

"The only reason that the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was because over time they adopted the belief that it
just wasn’t possible".

Moral of the story: No matter how much the world tries to hold you back, always continue with the belief that what you want to achieve is
possible. Believing you can become successful is the most important step in actually achieving it.

4 Common Questions Business Startups Ask!

As a small business coach and consultant which i have been doing for 10years. There are common questions which most of my client that want to start a small business of their own often ask. According to the research i conducted in 2010 which shows that more than 70% asked few common question. I believe that this is what happens to a lot of people who want to start a small business of their own.

I have decided to write this article to help answer four major questions most people have when it comes to new starting in business.
Here are the most commonly question asked:

1. Do I Start Big or Small?
My candid answer is, start any business requires that you gain enough knowledge about the said business. Starting big should not come in rather you should think of starting small, this will help you understand the business and its host environment well. Get your business steady and grow it big.

2. When Is The Best Time To
Start a Business?
The truth is, there is never a perfect time to start a business, except you want to venture into seasonal business that only last for some weeks or a month in a year,like festivals,raining season. Think about this; quite a lot of businesses flourished under the last economic
downturn and it can still happen in the future. So my answer is quite
simple. The best time to start a business is Today! Not tomorrow.
What i mean is that you should start now, start today with the decision that you are going to create your dream business. Start today with a
thought about the service you're going to provide. Start today by putting your ideas down on paper. Start today to study and research the business and it host environment. This is a step in the right direction. So dear friends, the best time to start a business is now and today.

3. What Type Of Business Can I Start?
This requires a lot of brainstorming but I'm going to give you simple tips that you can follow to decide on the type of business you should start. To generate a true business idea that you can start is from converting your hobby, passion , experiences and skill into a business. You can as well exploit an existing opportunity
which may requires little or no money to start. To start a business without capital then think of providing services. Therefore, it is easy for you to get clients, find a market, create a solution, and ultimately exploit opportunities the market presents. I must admit this is my favourite type of business
(providing and marketing service) of my small business coach/consulting services. Don't forget that any start-up business will go through tough times and without passion to overcome obstacles, most people will simply give up! My advice is for you to continue pushing and don't quit, all the big companies you know today started small. So what about exploiting an existing opportunity? Perhaps you're working in the place and have discovered that a particular service is missing or that an opportunity exists to deliver maybe a consultancy, particular product or a particular service. That is the kind of opportunity I'm talking about exploiting by taking action fast.

4. How Much money Do I Need To Start Up My Business And Some Will Say Where Am I Going To Get The Money To Start?
One of my mentor at an investors meeting said there is never a
shortage of money, there is just a shortage of well tested and well-presented ideas. This means anyone with a well-tested business idea
can actually raise the money they need for their business by way of investment. Another good way to get the money you need to start
your business is to ask the existing customers or potential customers to pay a deposit or pay in full before the service is delivered. This is very possible especially when your product or you're into service business, and your product must be
extremely useful to your target group. Are you seeing with these types of questions out of the way that there is no reason why you
should wait till December or January to start your small business?
Why not start acting today?
Why not take action today? Consider the first steps you can take towards starting your own business and don't wait any longer. The year is about to end. The sooner
you begin the sooner you achieve your dream of owning and running a successful business!

8 Key Qualities Of An Entrepreneur

A simple definition that comes to mind when it comes to entrepreneur is someone who is a risk taker. The definition of entrepreneur can’t be completed without identifying the key qualities that is seen in any true entrepreneur or whoever wants to become one. The skills aren’t the main difference between an ordinary person and an entrepreneur, there are qualities and traits involved too.
But i want to write about the main ones and here they are:

1. Contribution
A true entrepreneur makes a difference with the product/service he creates and offers. He finds out who his ideal customer is, a pain he has in his life and thinks of
something he can produce that will alleviate it, they are always searching for problems within or outside their immediate environments and they will make sure they provide solutions . Once he gets it done, such a client would
gladly pay for the right solution for his struggles in life. That’s when business and integrity go hand in hand.

2. Innovation
Entrepreneurs don't settle for the ordinary. They are always looking for the next big business idea out there or combine ordinary things from daily life in an unusual way to
create something useful and absolutely
fascinating and extra-ordinary. Or they just let their creative juices flow and hustle hard enough to make
something out of nothing and explain to people why they need to buy it,this is known as their unique selling proposition ( USP).

3. Vision
All true entrepreneurs see beyond their noses. Entrepreneurs are visionaries. They know what they want and have already achieved
their goals in their mind, before they pursue them in real life. They dream big, aim high and get fantastic results.

4. Trial and Error
The reason why they are risk taker is because they never quit from trying new things until they gets it righy. You can’t get it right from the very
beginning. Many people quit after a failure or a few. Others, stay around a bit longer but eventually lose hope, have invested too much in all this but don’t see it going anywhere, or lose confidence in their abilities. That’s why the top is never crowded but the bottom do. So, if you want to be an entrepreneur. You must have a strong spirit to continue pushing forward.

5. Resourcefulness
They never get tired. They know that success is never a day job. They don't go for short cuts. Entrepreneurs work with what they have to build stuff, but they also make the most of their connections, creativity, productivity and environment, while forming new
relationships, thinking of new ways to do things and finding new solutions to existing problems.

6. Opportunities
Entrepreneurs are opportunists. The average person, however, doesn’t keep his eyes open so that when opportunities come he can grab them and make the most of them.
Instead, he blames life for not giving him enough chances. But, Entrepreneurs always keep their eyes wide open for any opportunity.

7. Value
Entrepreneurship is about creating value, offering more than others expect and that’s exactly why the people who do it receive
more in return in terms of financial
rewards, praise, satisfaction in life and happiness.

8. Networking
That’s an important skill in the
entrepreneurial world these days.
If you’re running digital businesses, that shouldn’t stop you from reaching out to influencers, personally contacting your
users/clients to ask for feedback, making friends in your field, seeking guidance from those who are ahead of you in the same line.

But once you become a real entrepreneur, you’ll start traveling for work too. You’ll go to conferences – just to attend, and after some time maybe even speak – and meet
with people in person, you’ll get interviewed and go to special events. But it’s about people.
Entrepreneurs are thus great
communicators, most of whom started from nothing, but were motivated enough to put
themselves out there even if it means knocking on a few doors in your neighborhood asking people whether your potential product is something they will need. We are in the era of social media, so go out their and take advantage of all these platforms and get your business up in the sky. Be a risk taker, a solution provider,create and add value to peoples lives and you will get double in return.

Believe In Yourself. Be a Winner.

You will achieve success this week. It is only a loser that always say " I will believe it when i see" when you hear somebody making this statement, that means he/she is already planning to fail. He/she has no clear vision of the future to achieve purpose in life and live happily.

But, successful people always have the believe that success is certain. They proclaim " I will believe it without seeing it, because i know all things are possible." With these strong affirmation, they are determined to pursue their passion with strong burning desire to succeed in whatever they are doing.

If you have a dream, you must believe in your dream, you must believe in yourself, you must see yourself achieving your heart desire. You will not allow self limitation to set in your way. You need to surround yourself with successful people. If where you are is not comfortable to agree with your success, change your position and move out of your comfort zone.

The first step in achieving the impossible is refusing to believe that anything is impossible and that is where faith comes in. Your faith must be strong enough to move mountains of obstacles. Faith is believing without proof.

Do you want to write your promotional exam? Have faith that you are already promoted. Do you want embark on a project? Have faith that it is already done. Do you want to start a business? Have faith that it will be successful. Do you want to go into marriage? Have faith that your marriage will be successful and fruitful. Always aim high. Don't settle for less, you are not a failure.

Map out plans to be a WINNER. take responsibility for your actions. Don't blame fate for failures or credit luck for success. Think positive and act smartly. Be who you want to be and live a fulfilled life.

5 Ways Small Businesses Can Survive In Any Harsh Economy

According to research, i believe that small business can still grow and survive an economy that is some how hard. No matter how bad the economy is small businesses can survive a crazy economy by taking some proactive steps in the right direction.

I have received some couples of emails and calls from my clients asking me on what they can do to stay in business considering the present economy that we are experiencing presently in Nigeria. I have some few important key point that can help you maintain your customers, sales and also attract new customers and increase sales. Follow this simple steps and get your small business rocking:

1. Provide a Unique Customer
Service All The Time.
Have a friend or colleague visit your business and provide feedback from a customer's perspective. This
person should be unknown by your staff and willing to provide a candid assessment , and you should use the advice as a yard stick to know what your small business is lacking and provide more benefit for your customers.

2. Make Sure Your Front And Back Office Work Are Efficient.
Are the front line and the back office telling your customers the same
thing? If not, then you must train and have a common slogan or message that all that is involved in your business must carry along. Your message and that of your staffs or your products and services must not contradict.

3. Manage Your Customer Relationships. They are the live blood of every business. They are the king and you must carry them along with respect and always put yourself in their shoes. If you treat them well, they will always come back and also introduce your business to their friends and family all because they were happy doing business with you. Keep in touch

4. Review Your Strategic plan Monthly. Make sure you're doing the
things that will get you where you want to go. Your plans must be realistic and must go along with your vision and objective of business. If things are not going the way you want, then review and change your plan. Adjust your strategic plan as necessary.
Your "smallness" makes you more flexible.

5. Communicate Positively And Effectively.
Your employees and your customers need to be carried along in your business. Give them new directives and let them know in time if anything is changing for good in your business. Your employees should be the first to know your plans, benefits and strategies so that they can help fast communicate the message to your customers.
Nurture those relationships and always ask for feedback. Communication in business is a key to success.

Use this tips here to keep your small business alive and inform. I love to get feedbacks from you, so don't forget to share on tips using the comment box below.

Achieve Your Full Potential

 “A man can be as great as he want to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done." Vinci Lombardi

According to the Stanford Brain Institute the average person uses only 2% of his potential.
Can you imagine that?

This means that the quality of life we have today is a result of these 2%. And the rest is just wasted.
Honestly, that doesn’t come as a surprise once we analyze our daily routines – getting up, brushing our teeth, going to work (usually
to a job we don’t like), coming back,
watching TV, eating junk food in front of it, staying in front of the computer after that and so on.

And if you look at the bigger picture the average person doesn’t do any significant activity or one that requires high mental performance. He literally lives on autopilot, does what he’s instructed and doesn’t even have to take decisions.

Now imagine what could happen if we use 30 or 40% of our potential? That will be tremendous. In fact, I think we can. And all the geniuses
and remarkable people these days, and in our history, have done it – they just found ways to unleash their potential and powers and use them to level up in life, create amazing things and become someone to look up to.

That can happen by transforming our lifestyle, changing it completely and starting to do the following

* Things repeatedly:
* Grow spiritually;
* Learn new things;
* Read;
* Meditate;
* Change your habits;
* Eliminate the things that hold you
* Get rid of the limitations you set up
in your mind;
* Ignore conventional wisdom;
* Live consciously;
* Focus;
* Have a vision;
* Experience new things;
* Go out of your comfort zone;
* Challenge yourself.;
* Conquer your fears by simply doing
* What you’re afraid of;
* Help others succeed;

These are things we’ve all heard of, but how many of us actually practice them every day? The truth is that until we stop considering huge success and building the ideal lifestyle something impossible that we don’t deserve and are not good enough to achieve, we won’t have it.
Once we embrace our potential and eliminate hopelessness, unworthiness and mediocrity, we will get there through hard work and

Realizing and defining it. The first thing that stops us from awakening
the giant within us is that we don’t realize what we’re capable of. We simply think it’s impossible and that thought itself prevents us from making the first step and beginning
our journey to leading a legendary life. The next thing is that we can’t define it.

Here is what Jonathan Mead says

“Most of us have heard something like this before: “You have a lot of
potential,” or in school, “You have so
much potential, work hard and you
might realize it. The only problem is no one seems to tell us where to start or how to achieve our fullest potential. After all, potential is such an ominous term. You can’t measure it. You can’t quantify it. You can’t define potential.”

The simple act of becoming aware of our own abilities and powers can help us move forward and actually do something about it. And it always helps to have support and people close to you who believe in you, but in the end it’s all up to you whether you’ll be confident enough and try again and again until you succeed.

Every now and then we have epiphanies and a short but powerful moment in which we feel we’re worth it, we know there’s more about
life than what we’re currently experiencing and want to do something about it immediately. But soon these feelings are gone
and we’re back to our everyday life with its daily worries. What we need to have to make a permanent
change is the never-ending belief that we can do anything we want, become whoever we want and get anywhere we decide. That also
means that we need to be constantly

Now think of what you will want to do if you could use 30-40% of your potential. That means performing 40 times better than you are now. And having much higher results in
every area of your life. You would be able to make more money, to
learn new skills better and faster, to have great relationships, to maximize your productivity, start a new business and succeed, to have control over your habits and develop only healthy ones, to eliminate stress and be able to solve any problem, to be focused all the time on the things that are important and to be able to enjoy life at the same time. That would be great. And it is possible. It requires hard work, dedication, sacrifices and strong mindset, but many people have gone there and so can you.

So start working on your ideal lifestyle now and stay true to what you believe in. Soon you will see small changes going on, then come small but significant achievements. And after a while you’ll be able to see how you’re starting to get closer to the things you’ve always wanted.

7 Steps To Become An Internet Entrepreneur.

Here are some first steps to getting started as an internet entrepreneur:

1. Honest self-assessment: There are certain qualities necessary to being self-employed. If you can honestly say that you are self-
disciplined, self-motivated, determined, self- confident, patient, persevering and maybe even
a bit stubborn, you have what it takes.

2. Research: You need to spend some time researching the company, the products, and the
people already working the business. Is the company solid and dependable, are the company executives accessible and responsive, are the products of high desirability and quality, and maybe most importantly, is there
experienced, successful, and friendly team support?

3. Support: Surround yourself with cheerleaders, mentors, knowledge, and inspiration, both on- and offline. Your family, the company, and
others who have succeeded where you are treading for the first time, should all be available to you. You should never feel that you're all alone.

4. Infrastructure: Decide what you need: computer,printer, fax, phone; whatever your chosen business requires. Create an office space that suits your lifestyle and work needs.
A small corner of the living room can function well if you can work while the kids are at school or if their noise doesn't bother you, but evening work
may require a separate room. Don't put your office in the bedroom if you work evenings and your spouse goes to bed early. You need your family's support, not their animosity!

5. Realism: It's tempting to try a business that makes promises it can't keep. Many tell you that one person or a few make thousands of
dollars a week and so can you. None of them will point out that maybe you will be one of thousands who quit before they make a cent.
"Put money in your pocket today!" Yes, but will any go in tomorrow?
Accept the fact that any business worth its salt can take time. Maybe you can begin making money in a couple months, or maybe a year.
You have to be able to maintain life as you know it for however long it takes. Understand that it won't be a steady climb to the top from where you are today; the path will go up and down.

6. Selling someone else's product or your own: Obviously, the big money is in selling your own product. Selling for another company is a great way to get your feet wet in internet commerce, however. At first you may feel like you're floundering in an unfathomable sea of
information, but at some point will come the knowledge that you're "getting it." Working for a good company will leave you knowing that you have what it takes to do it on your own, if you choose.

7. Business plan: This keeps you focused, helps you develop goals, strategies and work plans; and aids in evaluating your results. It can
include contingency plans, and is never written in stone. As you learn and your business develops, the plan will evolve too. Now that you've got the road map...i strongly advice you to take that first step! Your future begins today!

Five Top Secretes You Should Know Before Starting Your Business.

Starting your own business is the key to financial success but without a proper plan and knowing what and what that is needed for you to start,run and grow your small business success. The nature of business has changed over the years, and the idea of going out alone is much more prevalent. With this shift in mindset , it seems as if people tend to paint a fairly rosy picture of entrepreneurship .

Most do so because they truly believe it is the right answer for a lot
of people who are not happy at work, and for others who might be but could still be more fulfilled, happier , and make more money working for themselves. While it may an incredibly rewarding experience, if this is a path you are considering, there are indeed things people
may not tell you about. With this in mind , here are important five secretes you need to know before starting any business of your choice.

1. More Money Will Be Needed Than You Think.

One of the main issues any entrepreneur faces when creating a startup is that it does indeed take money to make money . The question of course is – where do I get that money? The usual suspects are yourself ( savings, cashing out ) , friends and family, and SME loans. Lately other ways have arisen too – microfinance and crowdfunding to name just two. But an equally vexing issue is the amount of money you will need . The short answer
is that you will need enough to launch the venture , buy product, get inventory , market the business, and pay yourself – for at least 6 months, because that is the minimum amount of time it takes to start ,
get the word out , get business , and start the money cycle . And also , things will go wrong , mistakes
will be made , and unforeseen problems will arise. That is why it will cost you more than you think, for probably longer than you anticipate.

2. Start With Social Media.

This is not something that can wait for later, or be done poorly . Right from the start you simply must have a good website/blog , and a decent social media presence. Create a good Twitter and Facebook names for your business as soon
as you know what that name is . Get a good -looking website up and running before you have your grand physical opening . You can have yourself recorded with your smart phone talking about your product and services and post on all social media. Write articles and post e -newsletter. People today will find you as much online as they will offline , maybe more so , so your online offering has to be top -notch.
You really do not get a second chance to make a great first impression .

3. Your Skill Will Be Heavily Relied Upon.

Whatever skills you have learned along the way , whatever your specialty at work today, it will likely be true that you will need to bring those to bear in your startup
right from the very beginning.
When you start , your resources and help are limited . You will wear a lot of hats . If you are good at accounting , great! That is one less thing you will need to pay for. If you have marketing skills , those will be
vital to your startup. Sure you will be doing other new and fun and interesting things , but do not discount how important those
old tried and true things will be as well.

4. You Need To Attract Customers To Your Business.

As a new start up, no one knows about your new business. The question is here will these new customers come from? You will
need to let people know you are there , so before you ever open the doors to your new business, you better have a great plan in place .
First thing first, start by contacting everyone you know. That is one source. Your website, Twitter ,
Facebook , and LinkedIn ? That's two. Marketing and PR is three . FB ad is four and distributing flyers is five. I suggest you come up with at least five different ways to bring in customers before you begin or open door for business.

5. You Will Need Lots Of
Patience, Success Is Not Magic.

As you can see , it all takes time. Its a fact that Rome was not built in a day neither will your new startup, be
built in a day but one thing is certain and that is determination and focus leads to success. So creating that new enterprise takes faith and perseverance . Keep at it every day. Follow your plan. It almost always pays off , especially if you were ready right from the start . Always think positive,dream big and pursue your goals and dream with passion.

Key Qualities Of a True Charismatic Leader.

Here is some key points on how to to become the kind of person everyone admires and looks up to.

The most important quality of leadership, the one quality for which you want to be known, is
extraordinary performance with the goal of achieving extraordinary results—results that then serve as an inspiration to others to
perform at equally exceptional levels.

We ascribe leadership to those people who we feel can most enable us to achieve important goals or objectives—people with these
charismatic qualities:

1. They Earn Respect.
We develop great perceptions of those people we can count on to help us achieve what is important to us. People who work hard develop
influence in the minds and hearts of their co-workers and superiors, and they are spoken about in the most positive way.

2. They Have The Halo Effect.
Leaders who develop high-performing companies or departments develop what is
called the “halo effect.” They are perceived by others to be leaders who are capable of great things. Their shortcomings are often
overlooked, while their strong points are emphasized. They become charismatic.

3. They Accept Themselves.
Leaders develop charisma by working on themselves. They learn to like and accept themselves unconditionally. They do and say
the specific things that develop within them a powerful, charismatic personality.

4. They are determined and
purposeful. When leaders set clear goals and become determined and purposeful, backing those goals
with unshakable self-confidence, they develop charisma. They are enthusiastic and excited about what they’re doing. They are totally
committed to achieving something worthwhile. They radiate charisma.

5. They Accept Complete
When leaders take complete responsibility and accept ownership, without making excuses or blaming others, they have a sense of control
that is the foundation of charisma. They have the kind of external image that others admire. They develop their character by setting high
standards and then disciplining themselves to live consistently within the highest principles.
They become the kind of person who is admired and respected everywhere. They become the kind of person who radiates charisma to others.

6. They Focus On The Results.
Leaders who concentrate their energies on achieving the results that they were hired to accomplish, the results that others expect of
them, develop the reputation for performance and achievement that inevitably leads to the perception of greater charisma. You can develop the kind of charisma that opens doors by going to work on yourself,
consistently and persistently, and becoming the kind of person everyone can admire and look
up to. That’s what charisma is all about. Please share this article on your social media wall and leave a comment here,thanks.

Things Successful People Don't Do Again.

Dr. Henry Cloud has discovered
certain “awakenings” that people have—in life and in business—that once they have them, they never go back to the old way of doing
things. And when that happens, they are never the same. In short, they got it. “Years ago, a bad business decision of mine led to an interesting discussion with my mentor,” . “I had learned a valuable lesson the hard way, and he reassured me: ‘The good thing is once you learn that lesson, you never go back. You never do it again.’

“I wondered, what are the key awakenings that successful people go through that forever change how they do things, which propel them
to succeed in business, relationships, and life?

I began to study these awakenings, researching them over the years.”
Although life and business have many lessons to teach us, learning that high performers go through,
never to return again.

Successful people never again…

1. Return to what hasn’t worked.
Whether a job, or a broken relationship that was ended for a good reason, we should never
go back to the same thing, expecting different results, without something being different.

2. Do anything that requires
them to be someone they are
not. In everything we do, we have to ask ourselves, “Why am I doing this? Am I suited for it? Does it fit me? Is it sustainable?” If the answer is no
to any of these questions, you better have a very good reason to proceed.

3. Try to change another person.
When you realize that you cannot force someone into doing something, you give him or
her freedom and allow them to experience the consequences. In doing so, you find your own
freedom as well.

4. Believe they can please
everyone. Once you get that it truly is impossible to please everyone, you begin to live purposefully,
trying to please the right people.

5. Choose short-term
comfort over long-term benefit.
Once successful people know they want something that requires a painful, time-limited step, they do not mind the painful step because
it gets them to a long-term benefit. Living out this principle is one of the most fundamental differences between successful and
unsuccessful people, both personally and professionally.

6. Take their eyes off the big
picture. We function better emotionally and perform better in our lives when we can see the big
picture. For successful people, no one event is ever the whole story. Winners remember that – each and every day.

7. Neglect to do due diligence.
No matter how good something looks on the outside, it is only by taking a deeper, diligent, and honest look that we will find out what we
truly need to know: the reality that we owe ourselves.

8. Fail to ask why they are
where they find themselves.
One of the biggest differences between successful people and others is that in love and in life, in relationships and in business,
successful people always ask themselves, what part am I playing in this situation? Said another way, they do not see themselves only
as victims, even when they are.

9. Forget that their inner life determines their outer success.
The good life sometimes has little to do with outside circumstances. We are happy and fulfilled mostly by who we are on the inside.
Research validates that. And our internal lives largely contribute to producing many of our external circumstances. And, the converse is true: people who are still trying to find success in various areas of life
can almost always point to one or more of these patterns as a reason they are repeating the same mistakes.

Everyone makes mistakes even the most successful people out there. But, what achievers do better than others is recognize the patterns that are causing those mistakes and
never repeat them again. In short, they learn from pain—their own and the pain of others.

A good thing to remember is this: pain is unavoidable, but repeating the same pain twice, when we could choose to learn and do something different, is certainly avoidable. I
like to say, “we don’t need new ways to fail the old ones are working just fine!” Our task, in business and in life, is to observe what they are, and never go back to doing them

My Key Important Productivity Method

You can read entire books on productivity, dozens of blog posts, and implement half a dozen different productivity systems. But at the end of the day, you’d have gotten nothing important done.

The truth is, productivity is fairly simple, in theory. Even if you have an overwhelming amount to do, the steps aren’t hard to figure out:

1. Pick something important to work on (a task from your most important project, perhaps). What you pick doesn’t really matter, because you’ll get the rest soon.

2. Focus exclusively on that task for a bit, finishing it if you can.

3. Pick another important task after that, and repeat.

And of course, take breaks. Walk around. Do some yoga. Meditate. Eat something healthy. Socialize. But when you're going to work, focus on something important, and try to get it done. You might think you have too much to do, but in truth, all you can really do is focus on one thing at a time.

So if it’s so simple, what’s getting in the way? Fear.

Some of the fears that get in the way of executive the productivity steps above: fear of failure, uncertainty, incompetence, discomfort, not having control control.

In fact, we fear only one thing really: not having control, certainty, security, comfort. Those are really all the same thing (certainty). All of our fears come from that.

We don’t like to feel these fears. So we avoid them, trying to seek control, certainty, comfort by going to distractions, news sites, social media, cat videos, email, text messages. We try to get control by running from the important but uncertain tasks and tidying up, doing errands, organizing, making a new productivity system. Anything to avoid the uncertainty.

So now we get down to my Most Important Productivity Method. It’s diving into the uncertainty.

1. Start by setting yourself an important task. Any one will do. When you notice yourself getting lost in distractions or busywork, take a step back, and set yourself an important task.

2. Focus on that task, and only that task. Try to finish it, or at least work for 10-15 uninterrupted minutes.

3. When you notice yourself trying to go to distractions or busywork, pause. Notice the fear of uncertainty. Breathe.

4. Explore the feeling. See how it feels in your body. Stay with this physical feeling for a minute, and learn that you are OK despite this fear of uncertainty. There is a basic goodness in your heart that will always be there, even if you don’t know how this task or any moment will turn out.

5. Dive into the task, even with this feeling of fear in you. It’s OK to be aware of the fear, and still do your important task.

That’s it. Be aware of the fear, don’t let yourself act on it, explore it with curiosity, and do your important work anyway.

You’ll let yourself run from the fear, go to distraction, over and over. But it’s in that moment when you decide not to run that you really develop the skill that will change your life.

Tips On How To Make Money On The Internet.

Based on the hash economy a lot of people are wondering how to make
money online. The secrets to
making money online are the same
as making money in the "real
world" known as offline which are: Hard work, creativity,
innovation and knowledge. The
Internet is the real world, it just has some aspects that allow a person of lesser means compete with people with much deeper pockets.

Perhaps the biggest myth to making money online is that you don't have to work hard. This is far from the case. In fact, in the beginning
you might be working harder than you are now. Most people who succeed online do so by working very hard work at whatever project they are doing online. They did not just put up a website and sit back and wait for checks to flow in. They worked hard to get their businesses off the ground and were rewarded
for it. The basic truth here is that any person who wants to make money online will have to commit several hours a day at least and lots of sweat equity to the project.
If you're not prepared to work hard forget about making money online. You have a chance to make a good deal of money online but you do
have to earn it.

The people who make the most money online are those who come up with new ideas and concepts. Whether it's SEO marketing, blogging, selling through Twitter whatever somebody had to create it. The biggest fortunes will be made
by those who are willing to create something new and work hard at it. This has been the case in the "real world" for some time. It was
Bill Gates who decided the PC need a new operating system Now he can give away billions and not miss it. The same creativity takes place
now on the Internet.

After the creators the people who make the most money online are the innovators. These can be those who come with a new idea or those who have the courage to try and
implement a new idea. If an innovator sees something new that looks like a big money maker they try it, they adapt it and they start
doing it. In many cases innovators simply take somebody else's idea and run with it. Next time
you see a really great money making idea don't just try to figure out how you can get in on it. Instead, try to figure out how to do it better.
That will make you an innovator. It was Henry Ford who realized cars could be made efficiently with an assembly line process. That innovation changed the way cars are built.

The old saying that knowledge is power has never been truer. The online world is all about
knowledge; those who have the most knowledge will succeed online. That means learn as much about your business or product as you can. Read, do research online and offline, talk to others in the business, or develop a mentor relationship with a more experienced marketer.
Do whatever it takes to get more knowledge and you make money online .

Do You Want To Be Successful? Then Do What You Do Best

There are only two steps to success: to discover your natural talents and perfect them.

Let me share a story i once read that inspired me, its about Ken. Ken was a brilliant man. He began composing at 5 years old, and he was performing before royalty by the time he was
6. Early on, Ken realized what his talents were, practiced and honed what he was born to do, and used his natural abilities to create amazing pieces of music. Ken was not the first to be born with natural talents, and he wasn’t the last.

 We all have them—all of us. We only need to discover what they are and use them to the best of our
abilities. You have been given amazing gifts that are meant to be shared with the world. Your job is to find out what those talents are
and master them. When you focus most of your time and energy on your natural talents, you will find that you reap phenomenal

Celebrating our natural talents should be an easy task. But for many people, it’s emotionally exhausting, because a lot of people
fight their giftedness and natural talents for one reason or another. Perhaps their parents wouldn’t approve of their artistic ability to
paint or sculpt because they want them to be a successful doctor or lawyer. Maybe someone’s gift wouldn’t seem to have the
ability to bring the kind of wealth they desire. Sometimes people are simply afraid to pursue something that seems to come so easily to
them—shouldn’t success be difficult? No, it shouldn’t and it isn’t.

These are all excuses. And all the excuses in the world won’t destroy talent. It will be there, waiting for us to fight through fear and “what
ifs” until we realize what we should have been doing our entire lives. We have been given natural talents for a reason—to use them to the betterment of the world and those who inhabit it. Have you ever noticed that when you engage in an activity in which you are naturally talented,
you feel energized, excited and optimistic?

That’s a sign that these are the things you should be focusing upon,when you’re practically buzzing all over, so excited you can hardly stand still. Just like me, i love talking and sharing success tips to youth and Teens and that is why i am today doing what i love doing.
Your job is to find out what makes you buzz and begin to perfect it.

Discover your brilliance in life and practice, practice, practice. You
must hone your natural abilities to perfect them—concentrate on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Look at the world’s greatest athletes. They practice what they’re naturally good at—and what they love to do—every day. They stick to what they do best and reap astounding rewards because of it.

There are only two steps to success: Discover your brilliance and perfect it.

Doing this will allow you to receive the wealth you truly deserve. The only waste of human resources is
letting them go unused. Think positive,  take that bold step and step out of your comfort zone and excel and succeed.

4 Legal Ways To Make Money Online.

You have heard lots of people making money online right?.
Perhaps you have even tried it
yourself, but were unsuccessful
and hoping to seek some advice.
Well, the truth is, earning money online is very possible, but requires a lot of dedication,focus and hard work. I have researched some best way to make money online and here are my four legal ways:

1. Selling Stuff Online
Selling things online can be done by anyone and opens up so many doors. If you have a lot of
Old or used things ,electronics etc around your house, you could be sitting on a goldmine. With websites such as, efritin, konga etc, it is incredibly easy to sell second-
hand items. You may not be earning a lot per item, but if you have hundreds of items, you will make more money. This is usually only a temporary solution, unless you plan on finding inventory from wholesalers or even creating your own products, such as you will often see on Etsy. More commonly nowadays, many people are
selling things on Facebook, since the
introduction of groups have made it so easy. Similarly to Olx, this is a good option if you prefer selling and buying in your local area.

2. Affiliate Advertising
Affiliate advertising may be something you have heard about, but not a lot of people really
understand its purpose. You earn a commission selling products or services for someone else,
usually through links on a blog or website. This method can be quite successful when done properly.
In order to sell, you need to attract a high amount of traffic to your blog or website, with the appropriate content and information, which will hopefully encourage your readers to use
your affiliate links. You can signup with Jumia or konga and earn some amount of money when a prospect buys through your link.

3. Work at Home business.
This is a large umbrella term used to describe any sort of job that can be done long-distance, or more specifically, from home. While many
careers can be done from a home office, some of the most popular ones are data entry, blogging and even doing surveys and freelancers . These are usually residual income, but can give you some supplementary income on the side of your full-time job. Surveys are outsources to a large amount of people, when a company is doing
market research, so they are usually run through an organization such as Global Test Market or Toluna. The latter offers a variety of ways to earn extra money, including product
testing and polls.

4. Webpage Design
Webpage design is in huge demand and if you have a computer and an internet connection, you can also learn how to code. With a
thorough knowledge of HTML, CSS and PHP, you already have all the tools to build simple webpages. Consider helping others with their
WordPress themes, portfolio webpages or blogs, and you could be earning some serious money. Share this post.

How To Organize a Successful Seminars/Workshops.

Seminar is a very good business that anyone can go into and smile to the bank. Like i said in my book "The richest business in the world ". God created each and everyone of us with a unique talent that someone else want to learn. You can learn a skill, trade or have a knowledge that will be of great help to some one out there. Before i dig deep into how to make money with your expertise,skills,talent ,knowledge and passion organizing a seminar workshop, lets first know what seminar is all about.
A seminar is an organized gathering of group of people to discus certain subject or to learn about something special that will be beneficial to both parties. The organizer or convener can choose and presents a certain subject that could dwell on diverse issue such as business ideas or
something to do with the kind of talent, passion knowledge like a banking , stock broking, small business and many other relevant topics. Seminars are information well researched ,educative entertaining and bound by a limited lecture time. The lecture can be carried out by one or several
tutors whose primary function are to disseminate useful information.

Seminars cover a wide range
of subjects but most business seminars are usually how to do something like trade forex,
trade commodity, build website, Accounting, Technologies, personal development etc.

Purpose of seminars
The main purpose is to transmit useful information that will add value to your participants lives and in return you make money. Information is not cheap and that is why everybody needs information to grow or better still to achieve something good. So, the purpose
for organizing a business seminar is to disseminate useful information while making some profit. The business of organizing seminars is a
very lucrative one, especially if you are a public speaker or you have held a position of power and
authority. Proff. pat Utomi is paid more than N2M to speak, George Essien is priced from N500 to a million Naira per hour form some of his public appearances and
speeches. Do you have some expertise in certain area or are you a public speaker, writer or an educationist, you can leverage on your skill and make good money from seminars.

Any body can organize a seminar as far as you have something to sell, i mean something unique and of good value you want others to know, you can set up run a seminar, whatever the product it most be useful
information, educative and straight to the point, you must be able to prove the validity of your product through experience. People in the teaching profession are well suited for running seminars, colleges during holiday periods sometimes do organize holiday couching, this is a form of seminar or workshop.

To organize a seminar you need a product, the product borders on what knowledge you wish to share for a fee, if you are technically inclined or
gifted in the art of craft, you can sell your skill by organizing a seminar in craft making. An importer with the experience in shipping goods can use his experience to teach people the easiest and safest way to ship their goods without having problems with the customs. To organize a seminar you need a topic, put all you know down by written in a 'how to manual' , try to provide as much
information as you can so that the attendee can benefit from your experience and knowledge. Create a Microsoft word manual and make enough photocopies. The manual will be your guide when you
are conducting the seminar.

The seminar has to take place at a prearranged location that is accessible. Some venues are very expensive; some mid range while some can be gotten free but if you are a newbie, i strongly advice you start FREE with FREE venue If you can find a free venue that is decent
you can go for it. Take a look around
your immediate area and ask around. Church hall, School halls are some of the places you might get
for free.

You need to promote and advertise your seminar. Without promotions your seminar might fail , this is because you need to reach and connect with more people that are interested in what you are offering, promotions is a very effective why to reach people who might want to attend. Taking out a classified advertisement in a national daily will do the job nicely but start with your social media. I have used facebook , twitter to invite people to my seminar and the result is okay.
Just loggin and place advert on your Facebook, Twitter, flickr, hi5 , googleplus are all
free. Use it to promote your

From part 1, i talked about some causes of stress and here in this article i am going to talk about solution to stress, enjoy. If our attachment to an ideal is the cause of our stress, then can we just not have ideals? Well, that would be ideal, perhaps, but no, I’ve found it impossible to not have ideals. The ideals come up, unbidden, in our active and ever hopeful minds.

The way to deal with the cause of stress is:

1) notice that you’re feeling stress or frustration.

2) mindfully notice your attachment to an ideal.

3) loosen the attachment, finding love for the actual reality of the present moment.

Let’s look at these in turn.

First, you have to notice the stress. Learn to see your frustration or worry about something as a signpost, a flag that tells you what’s going on. In this way, stress becomes a positive thing, because it’s letting you know that something is going on. It’s like a notification system on your phone — instead of ignoring the notifications, as we usually do (we don’t like to think about stress), we can mindfully drop into ourselves and deal with it.

Next, you have to mindfully notice your attachment to the ideal. That means dropping in and saying, “Hey, things are meeting my ideal and it’s stressing me out — what’s my ideal?” It’s probably something that is more secure, stable, comfortable, controlled than what you’re currently experiencing.

For example, if you’re overwhelmed by too much work, your ideal is probably that you have a very controlled, comfortable amount of work, and that you’re on top of it all. That would feel much more secure, stable, comfortable to you.

Unfortunately, comfort and control and security aren’t what life provides us. It mostly provides us the very opposite — something chaotic, unpredictable, uncomfortable, unstable. And we can be upset by this, or we can embrace it. We can hate all of this about life, or we can love it. This is a choice.

Finally, we can loosen our attachment to this expectation or ideal. We can say, “This ideal is not helping me. Clinging to wanting things this way is actually harming me. I hereby open my heart to many more possibilities.”

That means we can be open to a less-than-ideal co-worker, who isn’t perfect and is struggling with his issues. We can be open to loving having too much work, more than we can possibly do, and having to
prioritize and just focus on the important stuff for now. We can be open to the possibility that we’ll do poorly, or lose our jobs, because even then we’ll figure something out and life will be just fine.

Most of us want to control life to be the way we want. And that’s fine, if it works for you.

What I’m suggesting is being open to many other possibilities, opening your heart to what life offers instead of what you want it to offer, being curious about what’s really in front of you rather than judgmental, and learning to love everything as it is. And most importantly, you shoukd be positive all the time.

Just before the advent internet, in order to create your own info product to sell, you need to be financially buoyant . Since all products were physical, they had to be created
and then shipped to most bookshops or carried to workshops and seminars. With the internet you have many more options for
creating and distributing your info products without incurring any cost and stress. You can make
them digital or physical, you can create software ,audio, video or ebooks using just your computer.

Before you get started though, you need to make several decisions so that your product becomes a
success. Ask yourself these questions, and use your answers to create a successful product.

1. What Will Be The Topic Of My Products?

Is there a specific topic you are an expert in? Do you have a hobby you’ve been very successful at
and can share your knowledge? Is there a topic you are passionate about? Regardless of what your skill is, there’s probably a market for it. The first step in getting started
is to do your research, once you’ve chosen your topic, find out if there is a market for what you do. You can search for your topic in the search engines. Look for forums like nairaland, some Christian forums, students forums etc , social
networking sites, and other sites that offer products similar to the ones you want to create. If you find many sites like these, then you have a huge market for your info product.

2. What Format Will i Use To Create My Products?

Although writing is one of the easiest ways to communicate your information to others, writing a
book isn’t the only way to create an information product. You have the option of creating different types of products to meet the needs of
your audience, including video,info graphics and audio on CDs and you can as well organize a seminar and sell your expertise. You can also create strictly digital products that can be downloaded from your website or blog.

3. What Tools Will i Need To Create My Products?

If you plan to write books ( though physical books and costly to produce) or ebooks, you need a word processing program (Microsoft word) , as well as a program to create PDFs. A PDF is a universal format that can be distributed to anyone and read on any type of computer and phones like smart phones,androids etc . If you plan to self publish your manuscript as a book, you’ll need to convert your
document to PDF before publishing.
With video and audio, you’ll either need a video camera, or some type of software on your computer to create your audios and videos. You
can do a search at any of the freeware websites to find software for creating your projects in these
formats. Go to computer village and get these softwares or download it free from a site, just do a search for it on google.

4. How Will i Distribute My Products?

This is one if the major and important part that will determine your success in making money from information marketing. There many ways to promote and get your product in front of your target audince. Once you know what format you will create your
product in, you’ll need to decide how to distribute it. This means taking orders, as well as processing payments. The secret here is to
automate every aspect of the order, payment, and distribution process so your products are available 24/7. It will also save you a lot of time,
and you can use your time to market your products. Remember you need a great sales page and a good traffic.

5. How Will i Market My Products?

Another major question that needs a good answer. The type of product you sell can largely determine
how you will market your product. Will you create a website /blog to send your traffic to? Do you plan to
pay for traffic, as in pay per clicks? Articles and press releases are a great way to get the word out about your business and drive traffic. You can also advertise your business using classified ads on newsprints and magazine here in Nigeria, as well as share your knowledge on forums and social network sites.
There are many ways to market your business that will get you the traffic to sell your products. I strongly advice that you create your marketing plan before you create your products and then launch as soon as you are ready to begin to market your products. The success here is determined by action and getting more knowledge about information marketing. This is the richest business in the world as stated in my bestseller book "The Richest Business In The World"

There isn’t a working person among us who doesn’t deal with stress — whether you’re an entrepreneur, a part time worker or  struggling for a  startup, or clocking in working for a company, work stress is inevitable.

The question now is where does this stress originate from , and how do we deal with it? In this article, i will discuss and identify some causes and solution to stress.

Most guides to stress will give you some actions to take like exercise, sleep well, eat right, meditate, and do some yoga at your desk etc. These are all amazing, and you should do them.

However, I’m more interested in getting at the root of stress. Dig down, ferret out the cause, and work it out directly, rather than treating the symptoms. Only once if you deal with the cause of stress you can be a master of it.

Cause of Stress

Let’s take a look at some things you might be stressed about at work:

Hard deadlines, Difficult co-workers or boss, Uncertainty about your job, Uncertainty about whether you can succeed at this project Competition, office politics, interpersonal conflicts, Not having enough time for family or personal life, Being overwhelmed by too much to do and the list go on and on.

There are many more possibilities, but these are a good example. In all these examples, you should understand that the cause is really the same thing:

We are attached to how we want things to be. We have an ideal about how each of these situations should be, and our clinging to this ideal is causing the stress.

Let’s take the uncertainty about the job. Of course, that’s not ideal, we would rather have a stable job that we don’t have to worry about. So reality is not matching our ideal (a stable job), and that causes us stress. We don’t like the present situation, and this not wanting uncertainty is causing us to stress out.

The same is true of each of the above examples — when a co-worker is not meeting our ideal, when we have an ideal that we won’t have too much to do, when our ideal of having easy-to-meet deadlines isn’t being met … we get stressed.

Unfortunately, this happens all day long, every day. Our ideals about reality are constantly not being met, and so we stress out. It builds up. It becomes a health problem.

Watch out for the next article on the simple solutions to deal with stress. Help someone to live better by sharing this post on your social media timeline and we love to read your comments.

In his early career, Elumelu acquired and turned Standard Trust Bank into a top-five player in Nigeria. In 2005, his corporate reputation as an

to do it , you may have your perfect
business opportunity.

6. Tutoring/Teaching
Not everyone “gets” the subject they are currently studying. In fact , people who need some extra coaching may not even be taking classes . There are many areas of
our lives where we could use a little bit of help with improving, including art , computer skills , organization , cooking , etc . If you are skilled in a specific area that other people have trouble with and love to teach, those skills tutoring or teaching may

skills to create products such as business cards, website templates and stock illustrations that you can sell.

up a few pieces at a time and offer a “sale day” where people can come and see everything you have . Or , just sell your pieces one at a time through facebook,twitter etc

21. Logo Design Services
If you’re a graphic designer, but don’t want to be attached to huge projects , you might want to consider creating  a niche by becoming a logo designer only. The projects are typically simple and straightforward and you probably already have everything you need to do the
work. To get started building your
portfolio , contact local businesses most especially small business owners , nonprofit organizations or government agencies for work. You can also expand your services by providing logos and other branding images for use on social media
profiles as well.

However , many in this field find it an
extremely rewarding experience. They key to success with this business idea is to find a speciality that is unique in your area . You can focus on a certain cuisine ,
dietary needs, or type of event.

24. Errand Service.
Companies like DHL, FEDEX etc are already employing this idea , but they’ re only available in most big cities . Offering similar services in your local area could be quite
lucrative if you’re willing to do the tasks at hand . This can be especially fruitful if you are offering your services to the senior market. This demographic isn’t as able to
get around and would benefit greatly from having someone they trust run some local errands for them on a fee.

25. Virtual Assistant
The best part about being a virtual
assistant is that you can do it from home. Most of the tasks for a virtual assistant are computer related , so as long as you have a computer , internet access and a phone you are set. With this business you’ ll want to make sure you have a few
clients at a time to ensure you can work the hours needed . Since the benefit of a virtual assistant is that a person can hire them for as much or as little as needed , you’ll need to account for peaks and lows in weekly hours .

28. App Developer
The phrase “there's an app for that” has never been more true than it is today , but there's always room for a new idea or a better implementation of something that's already out there. From developing an app
for a company to creating something for yourself. All you need is a great idea and the technical know - how to actually build it.

reputation for being the “go to ” computer handyman . Get the word out to your friends and family about what you’ re doing and you’ ll be off to a great start .

33. Computer Skills Tutor
In today ’ s connected world, people can often feel out of the loop when it comes to new technologies, and the constant stream of new products means it ’ s only going to get worse . If you have the patience and
the teaching ability , it could be a great idea to start a business getting the “technologically inept” up to par with the current software. Go to secondary schools and offer your services at a fee, you can charge from N3000 per student and teach them for two or three weeks.

34. Picture Framing

partnering with your local visitor ’ s bureau to help attract tourists to your business.
