    I still have to come back to this book again,after reading it the first time(Lockdown Advantage): How to become a SUB-DISTRIBUTOR to the big consumer brands by:–Tosan Alimi.

    Even if you are the richest in the world, without a distribution knowledge tips from this book, I can assure you that you will fail woefully. (it’s not only about the amount of capital you have).

    This book will open your eyes in this field of distribution business to know how to cut the edges of unhealthy competitors in becoming a successful distributor. Also, the book will also equip you to knowing the social antics of your vendors. (Win, Win Quarterly Agreement Contract). Also, the book will guide you on how to plan your strategies to make good profit out of the business ie meeting your vendors targets, in SALES and PAYMENTS.

    Much rigorous, painstaking effort and concentration must have been pour, in the course of this book. coupled with the author’s practical years in the business. I say a big Thanks To The Author —- Madam Tosan Alimi.

    Therefore, it is highly recommended to any potential business man/woman who wish to venture into becoming: A DISTRIBUTOR/ SUB-DISTRIBUTOR to the big consumer brand like: Nestle Nig PLC, Friesland Campina(WAMCO), P&G….etc

    The book “how to become a sub distributor to the big consumer brand” is a wonderful piece.

    Honestly, I must confess that the book has really helped me in knowing so many things that I needed to know about being a sub distributor.

    At first, I thought been financially fit was enough to venture into this kind of business. But little did I know that it takes a whole lot. No wonder some sub-distributors find it difficult to survive when they are faced with different challenges (Not necessarily financially) but other skills that are needed for its going concern.

    I recommend this book for anyone who aspire to be a successful sub-distributor.
