Even those in debt can testify to the way little interest amounts can become stumbling blocks to getting out of debt. Today’s book review shares on additional ways by which we can harness the impact of compounding effect for success.Continue reading “HOW TO USE THE MAGIC OF COMPOUNDING EFFECT FOR SUCCESS!”
The predictions of the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on businesses and employees described here are apt!
What happens to entire classes of people who made average financial plans when faced with extended periods of very difficult economic times or decades of extended unemployment?Grant Cardone
Sounds familiar? So I thought.
Just a few months into the Pandemic and most businesses and employees are really struggling; in fact some businesses are yet to get the resume operations.
Average sure doesn’t cut it.Continue reading “Did He predict the Pandemic???”
Sometimes I feel that we meet certain people at the exact time we are prepared to receive them, same with the books we read. This book could not have been timelier for me especially with the privilege of starting a new company.

The goal is not to do business with everybody that needs what you have, the goal is to do business with everyone that believes what you believe.
I remember some years back when a particular question haunted me. It followed me everywhere I went and showed up in everything I did. I was working hard, earning more but yet I didn’t feel fulfilled, so I needed to know the signs to look out for, I needed to be able to know what IT would mean on the inside before it became evident to others. I needed to know what the criteria was to be among them, I needed to know the milestones to work towards, I needed a vision for what it looked like so I would know when I achieved it, that was when my search began…
I needed to answer the question – WHAT DOES SUCCESS MEAN TO ME?
Here are a few things I found out;Continue reading “One sure way to know you are successful…”
It is the start of a new year and also the start of a new decade in a few days which you must have being constantly reminded of (except you live under a rock), from various quarters – vision board and goal setting enthusiasts, the media and even religious places of worship.
Everyone wants to show you how to plan for the New Year, how to set goals (make them even bigger and better to reflect the size of the decade), others genuinely do not want you to give up on your dreams by the 3rd week in January as most fitness goals meet their end.

Welcome to our first review from our 4th anniversary celebration ‘Choose our next book’
Wow! I am excited! I enjoyed a book that I didn’t pick myself! LOL! Typically, I wouldn’t want to be saddled with the commitment of reading a book chosen by someone which may end up being drab but as I am finding out, life is a mixture of good and bad; and to get the good, you have to be willing to get some of the bad too.
Welcome to our first autobiography at Tosansreviews!
BECOMING | MICHELLE OBAMA | PENGUIN-VIKING | 2018 | 426 PAGES
BECOMING by Michelle Obama was chosen by our loyal follower and reader – Jesmine Onyeukwu, who is an enthusiastic fan of the Obamas. Note, I said Obamas because even though I asked for just one book, she offered two – both by Obama – Becoming by Michelle Obama and The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama! Of course, BECOMING Michelle Obama got chosen.
In the book, Michelle Obama is telling her own story. It’s a lot of stories in one. A story of self-awareness, a story about what it means to be different, a story of race, a story of love, a story of family, a story of motherhood, a story of overcoming, a story of finding herself, a story of finding her voice and a story of using it – her voice.
Still in the celebratory atmosphere of our 4th anniversary, meet our MOST SIGNIFICANT POST … and it’s not because I am a lady. 🙂

I came across this book when I was on maternity leave with my first child, wondering if the workplace would still need me when I get back or if it was worth it to leave my bundle of joy for the hustle of work. It’s been 4 years since then and I am still growing strong in the workplace which may not have happened if I hadn’t read this book. It is for women who want to make impact and men who want to support that vision – Tosan A.

As the economic recession deepens, a lot has been said about the need for multiple streams of income. The real question for some is what skills do I need to create these extra streams?

We know so much about the value of leadership so much now and everyone wants to become a leader. Apart from leading one’s self, leaders need a team. Behind every successful person is a team of people working hard behind the scenes to make the person truly successful.
John C. Maxwell, author of the 21 irrefutable laws of leadership understands that teams are an essential part of leadership and vice versa, that’s why he has also done a study of teams in his book –
[BOOK REVIEW] THE 17 INDISPUTABLE LAWS OF TEAMWORK/ JOHN C. MAXWELL/ THOMAS NELSON INC. /2001/ 265 PAGES
The book has 17 chapters representing each law of teamwork. Each chapter has a story or research, or sometimes both to buttress the law being discussed. As usual, the author, John C. Maxwell uses easy-to-read English throughout the book and the stories make the laws stick and easy to understand. Continue reading “Do you know the Law of Significance?”
BOOK REVIEW: WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE: Holding on to your faith during the hardest times: DR. JAMES DOBSON: 1993: 250 PAGES
- Establish your foundation not on ephemeral emotions but on the authority of the written word. Our feelings about His inaccessibility mean nothing! His word is more reliable than our spooky emotions.
- Don’t lean on your own ability to understand, and most importantly don’t lose faith. I believe this is the most aggravating part of the whole saga, cos as humans we rationalize everything, and when we don’t understand things, we are thrown into disarray. We should not try to understand everything, we should aim to trust completely.
