LIFE WITH MY GLASSES

mr motivator

RANDOM THOUGHTS

LIFE WITH MY GLASSES

I see not necessarily as it is but as I am
I see things in the light of my preconceived notions
I have a paradigm.
We all have a paradigm.

Who I am influences what I see, and don’t see.
Who I become broadens my perspective

I take off my glasses on occasions
I wear other people’s glasses on occasions
To see life from other people’s view.

This makes me balanced.
This makes me a leader.
Now I understand.
I can be empathic.
I can make informed decisions when it comes to men i interact with.

But again I return to my glasses.
I almost always do.

We almost always do.
Man , at the end, sees things for himself.
And will keep returning to that perception unless he broadens his horizon through development and exposure.

TRUST IS CAPITAL – Adeolu Akinyemi

deolu 2

I had to meet him this Saturday morning by 7am. Reason? He was Lagos bound from Uyo for a very important meeting. Financial teacher and guru, Adeolu Akinyemi had been touring certain states in Nigeria to promote new products of Avenues to Wealth.Uyo was his last stop before he returned back to Lagos. It was indeed a privilege to meet him; one of those who inspired us when we chose the motivational speaking industry.

Our meeting lasted 25 minutes but was nonetheless rewarding.

He sat at the other end of the office and gave me his warmest smile.You could feel he was a people person, any wonder he is CEO of Avenues To Wealth, an online & multilevel marketing organization that focuses on discount pressuring and profit maximization. You could also feel his enthusiasm and passion as he shared thoughts with me

Many hold their audience spell bound with motivational speeches but few care to hold the audience by the hand and help them walk their way to financial freedom like he does. Many have failed at everything they have tried to do but everything he does turns to gold. Haven tried his hands on many businesses, he has failed sufficiently and obtained both a doctorate degree from the streets and earned the rights to help others succeed. While others seek to hold people down he is a candle that loses nothing by lighting up other candles. If leadership is measured by transforming followers to leaders and making success out of followers then Adeolu Akinyemi stands truly in a class of his own..

Regarded as the nation’s leading network marketer and blogger ,Adeolu Akinyemi currently drives Avenues to Wealth which is an international network marketing company with an uncommon passion. With a first degree in Electrical Engineering, Adeolu Akinyemi veered into the world of human resources and so distinguished himself with Procter and Gamble and Virgin Nigeria to become a human resources expert winning global and national awards for innovation, peak performance and exemplary professionalism. A genius with various interests, ‘Deolu is an entrepreneur per excellence with investments spanning diverse sectors such as oil and gas, real estate, publishing, arts and entertainment and media. He is presently leading a group of Nigerians who believe in taking responsibility for the development of the country.He’s a Network Marketer, he has demonstrated exemplary leadership, won many awards and is redefining the landscape of Network Marketing in Nigeria and internationally. In this industry, he is a mentor and a coach to his business partners and team members and a solution provider to his customers. He oversees a few concerns as a board member but actively drives Avenues to Wealth business as the MD of the Nigeria and the West African region. Adeolu Akinyemi is a patriot, a strategic influence and a financial freedom advocate. His blog – http://www.deoluakinyemi.com is one of the most followed blogs in Nigeria and beyond; little wonder people say ‘when ‘Deolu sneezes Africa experiences winter’. He is one of the most sought after entrepreneurial consultants in the country. Adeolu Akinyemi is guided by integrity, long-term thinking, a sincere desire to uplift and help others succeed and a strong sense of nationhood and love. He is a giver to many causes – scholarships, orphanages e.t.c. He’s happily married to his friend, Temitope Akinyemi and their union is blessed with 2 lovely children – Ireoluwa and Araoluwa Akinyemi. Adeolu Akinyemi’s passion for helping people succeed has now qualified him to be a Global Platinum Partner with Avenues to Wealt

Adeolu finished with a first Class in Engineering from the University. But in his own words, he said, ” I finished school and realized that I just didnt feel it for Engineering any more. My passion moved to teaching and HR(Human Relations).” He had a stint with P&G (Procter & Gamble) where he served in a top position for a number of years.

His desire to be in charge of his finances and life made him embrace entrepreneurship. It was the smartest move he made.Through the rise and falls, he has overtime through his resilience and creativity become an inspiration of millions of people.

That truly became the defining moment of his life.Below, are a few questions i asked this great mind.

GEORGE ESSIEN: “Raising capital? How do budding entrepreneurs raise capital?”

ADEOLU AKINYEMI: “I think the capital issue has been over laboured.Most people don’t need the amount of money they seek.And even at that, if a man has credibility and is consistent at what he does, he can easily raise money to start his business”

GEORGE ESSIEN: “Your take on network marketing?”

ADEOLU AKINYEMI: ” I think it is a beautiful way for people learn business. Before one embarks on traditional business, experts have now come to advice that doing a MLM business is a way to develop your business acumen. You are in business for yourself, but not by your self. You have an incredible support system for a parent company. You also learn selling, perseverance, leadership and financial intelligence.”

DON BASSEY: A NIGERIAN ENTREPRENUER WHO IS MAKING A FORTUNE FROM SHADES

BY Emeka Obia

 

Mark twain wrote “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Action they say, is the proof of pursuit.
As you know, life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

I met this brilliant, energetic, humble young man at an event a couple of months ago. We got talking and I was so impressed to see how at a young age and in just 8 years he is able to accomplish a lot as an entrepreneur. A curious young man who began reading books at a very young age, developed an interest in business. And at age 15 he was already involved in various petty businesses. In college he sold watches to his fellow students and upon graduation he resolved to take the Bold step in spite of disapproval from family and friends to start up his own business. With faith he believed he could it, and today he owns his own company and has grown to become one of the major dealers of Shade Covers for Carports, swimming pools etc in Nigeria with Head Quarters in Uyo, Akwaibom state and branches scattered all over the country including Abuja, Lagos, Cross rivers, Owerri. He decided to carve out a niche for himself and at just 30 he has made a name for himself in the business and has received several awards already.

With an ardent sense of humour coupled with a classy and quite unique dress sense, Don is a simple man.

Meet Engr. Don Bassey, CEO Shade Cover Nigeria Ltd as he shares his Inspiring Story in this Q&A session with Emekatalks. *Enjoy

Tell Us About Shade Cover Limited, When Did You Start?

Shade cover started in 2004 but the brand name was registered in 2007 under the Corporate affairs commission.

What Is Shade Cover All About?

Shade Cover is the Brand name. We specialize in Carport/Shade Port, Danpalon, Landscaping. Pool/fountain, Building and Construction etc. So just like our slogan goes “its not just a shade”.

One Major Challenge Most Young People Face In Getting Into Businesses Is Starting, So Tell Us, How Did You Start?

Well, I would say faith is the word. I started with faith. First, I believed in myself. Like the cliché goes, the best way to start is to start. I knew it was time for me to start. I knew I had to make that decision. So I started. Just like that. [Laughs]

From What I See, this Kind Of Business Requires Huge Funding. How Did You Raise Capital To Start?

Sincerely i would be lying if i say it was an easy road because it wasn’t. Like Robert Kiyosaki said “The better you are at communicating, negotiating and handling your fear of rejection the easier life is”. So first I worked on my Communication and Negotiation skills. I started with return and investment. I would convince people on the need to purchase these products, then I would get the product on Trust from a South African Company, and I pay back as soon as the customer pays. I did this till I eventually settled and began importing the products myself.

Why Shades And Not Any Other Business?

I discovered a need in this part of the world and I decided to fill it. In other words i saw the need for people to have the product.

What Inspired You To Go Into Entrepreneurship?

I read a lot of books. I read stories of the richest men in the world, people like Bill Gates of Microsoft, Dangote of Dangote Group and several others. And I thought? If these people could make it, then why not me. Again, when I look at the likes of Cosmos Maduka of Cosharis Motors, Chief (Dr) Ade Ojo, Chairman of Toyota Nigerian Limited, and i’m always inspired to do more and achieve more.

Where You Discouraged From Going Into Entrepreneurship?

Oh yes, I was. EVERYBODY tried to discourage me. They were afraid of my failure, they tried to stop me. From friends, relations, family. Even my own parents discouraged me. It was really tough form me. But I knew what I wanted, and I defined it.

Having Achieved So Much In Just 8 years, What Do You Have To Say About Your Success So Far ?

Sincerely i have not yet started. I believe there’s so much to be achieved so I’m not carried away by what I’ve been able to accomplish so far. Rather I’m focused on the future.

How Would You Want To Be Remembered?

I want to be known and classified among the top most successful entrepreneurs in the country, And also a philanthropist who has made significant impact in the society and touched several lives. I know forbes would name me some day soon. [Laughs]

What Advice Do You Have For Young People and Aspiring Entrepreneurs Reading This Right Now ?

I want young people to know that they can work something out, if only they believe in themselves, over come the fear of rejection, stay focused and determined. I also want to encourage young people go into Entrepreneurship away from politics. This is because most young people today are engrossed in politics and white collar jobs, and I say its about time we create jobs for ourselves and for others as well. I’m sure we can.

Thank You So Much Sir For Your Valuable Time Spent In Talking To Us

It’s a pleasure.

The Better Man Project ™

life

It seems like, at least for the past few days, my patience has been tested in so many different ways. The way life works for the most part is you can’t actually have it when you want it. Most of the time the timing itself does not work out or there is some other conflict. So what do you do? Keep working for it.

Luck is what happens when preparation and opportunity meet. You get lucky when you have put in the blood, sweat, and tears into something and you are ready for the opportunity to show your stuff. But, I feel as of late, I have forgotten how important that equation is. How important that hours of preparation are to making your life unfold before your eyes.

I believe we were all given these gifts – gifts in a special combination that no one else in the world could…

I could easily recite these ‘7’ dangers anytime of the day. Each time I read or hear anyone say them, I always wonder how a man – an Individual was able to come up with that! The Preeminent Leader of India nationalism in british rule india – The Man who Led India to Independence and Inspired movements for non-violence, civil rights and freedom across the world. Mahatma Gandhi (1869 – 1948) was truly an exceptional Man! (Even though I was born decades after his death).

Here are his ‘priceless’ 7 dangers to human virtues –

1. Wealth without Work.

2. Pleasure without Conscience.

3. Knowledge without Character.

4. Business without Ethics.

5. Science without Humanity.

6. Religion without Sacrifice.

And finally …

7. Politics without Principle.
