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.
At this time when the world is facing a pandemic, and the buzz words are furlough, salary cuts, termination, social distancing, crash in oil prices, stock market crash, loss of business income amongst other negative news, most of us are worried about the state of finances. This review comes at the right time to reassure us that we are worth more than birds to God and He will meet our needs if only we put our trust in Him and put Him first.
As we celebrate Easter especially in the most unusual of ways (indoors) due to the COVID-19 pandemic, It is a good time to reflect on why the celebration albeit a quiet one is important.
Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death some 2000 years ago. Jesus Christ is the core of Christianity – as the name implies. We celebrate his resurrection for different reasons; today I share my own personal reason(s) for identifying with Christ and celebrating Easter.
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.

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.

Have you ever experienced a time in your life when God seems to have abandoned you, left you alone to fend for yourself even though you know that he knows that you couldn’t handle that situation alone. You feel pained, angry at him and betrayed… Well, I have.

This is so true. A friend asked me once to write 100 achievements starting from age 6.
Believing it will be easy peasy, I set out to start only to get stuck after writing 15 achievements in 1 hour so thanks a lot Tosan, I now know how to go about it. Good job.
To be big or to be great? tries to open our minds to our options as business owners – Is Go big or Go home the only option? This is what Humble though of it;
Great! I admire how you took your time to break things down.
It is true that while our individual views at the so called “small giants” insinuates that they are “local champs”. On the contrary, it could be that the driver’s mission/goal is/was to remain small but great.
