HOW TO ORGANIZE A SUCCESSFUL SEMIANR

george 2

As at the last count, I have put together 40 seminars. Of the 40, say about 8 have been flops. So I can averagely say that I have had an 80% success rate in organizing seminars.

Thus, I feel that I have enough experience to teach you how to organize successful seminars.

I organized my first seminar May 19, 2000 at Yaba College of Technology.
73 people were in attendance. I was an OND 1 student of Science Laboratory Technology at Yaba Tech, but had enough zeal to inspire people. As a matter of fact, I did not know everything I do today.But I just went ahead.

I was only 18.

Just imagine if at that time I had succombed to these words :”Look young man, go and do something else with your life. Go to school, run a business or get a good job. Do this motivational thing later”.

Often when I see young men who want to go into the motivational speaking industry, I remember myself. My passion. My raw zeal without knowledge.

I did not know that much…but with zeal and persistence, look at where I am today.
I am obviously not where I want to be but of course I am not where I used to be!

I travel around Nigeria speaking and training. I have grown on the job.
I have earned as much as N300,000 cash for speaking to an organization’s staff because of my sheer faith in myself .

I never discourage the wannabees.
I never tell them that they can’t do it.

I only tell the following: ” Don’t just be interested in this speaking business, be committed! Anybody can be interested in this industry. Many have ventured into it and gone to do other things at the end.Few stay. The ones that stay are the committed ones.

“There are only two times the Bible uses COMMIT to describe an act. First, it says Don’t COMMIT Adultery and second don’t COMMIT murder. What that means is that if you sleep with, take for an example, a virgin, the deed cannot be undone; she cannot be a virgin ever again. Same thing to murder. When you commit murder , the person cannot come back to life. To commit is total, extreme and irreversible.To be committed to something , therefore, means to not think of turning back but seeing it through”

My second seminar was in 2005 as a year 3 student of University of Uyo.I had over 200 students in attendance.For me that was a very big success!

I waited for 5 years because i needed to develop expertise.george

Through out 2001 I attended Sam Adeyemi’s Ministry Mentorship Program . It was once every month through out the year. That program has evolved into what is today called DAYSTAR ACADEMY.

In 2004, I served under business consultant Wale Akinyemi who was working on a project in Uyo. That training was about a year.I learnt packaging, marketing, promotions…how to present with slides, how to produce powerful compelling slides and lots more.

In 2005, I was ready and I launched out!

Okay, let me share with you some tips that can help yoiu fill your halls and make money from the seminars. I use them till this day.

1. START BY MAKING YOUR SEMINARS FREE: Let people come and hear what you have first. I still do free seminars even today. But when people come in their numbers I sell them products and services. As a matter of fact, I never lose when I put together free seminars. george 3

Paid seminars for a wannabe would most likely be a flop.Start with free seminars no matter how educative your subject is. There is a way to speak and hook the people such that they pay for the core stuff.

2. DEVELOP PRODUCTS: Have your own books, manuals, tapes and Cds you can sell.These are called backend products. Sell your services too. Sell, sell , sell through out your presentation.

3.ORGANIZE A ‘HOW TO’ SEMINAR: People want to know how to do this and that.

4.USE THE SOCIAL MEDIA: Advert on Facebook, Twitter, flickr, hi5 , googleplus are all free. Use it to promote your event.

5.WRITE LETTERS: Write letters to churches, organizations to send participants. Tell them to send specific number of people.Write a good sales letter, convincing them to be part of the seminar.

6. TAKE SEMINARS TO THE ORGANIZATIONS: You can go to teachers, nurses, police and offer to do free seminars there. They most likely will grant you the opportunity. Once they gather, sell products and services.

7. CHOOSE A GOOD LOCATION: I have used EEMJM Hotel twice. Venue cost N150,000 per use for the location I use. With wisdom I have used these halls for free. If you want me to teach you how, send TEACH ME SEMINARS to 08187133153.george 4

8. USE FEEDBACK FORMS: No matter how good or bad your seminars turn out, hand out feed back forms. The forms should indicate how the people got to know about the seminar. Once you have discovered the most prominent feedback, focus on that. If ,for example, it was banners that attracted more people, focus on that.

9.BUILD A LIST: Never throw away the numbers and contacts of those who came for your seminars.Send them regular pleasant sms. These people can come back again and again if they enjoyed themselves the last time they came for your seminar.

10. CHOOSE A GOOD LOCATION: Make sure that your location is accessible. Don’t organize a paid seminar in an inferior hotel and hall. Most people come to seminars because of the location and price.

11. USE THE MEDIA: Find a way to be in the media. Televison, radio….even as a guest artiste. I did. It is not as hard as you think. Just try! Write regularly for a newspaper too.

12.PIGGY-BAGGY: Do you know a star in your neighbourhood who can make a guest appearance for free? If you connect well they can be of help. There are very rich entrepreneurs that can come to speak at your event for free. Get them to.That is what PIGGY-BAGGY is all about…it simply means leveraging on the back of successful people.

13. USE ‘TEAR SLIP’ HANDBILLS: Flyers don’t bring people to seminars. They are only for branding. If you use flyers at all, add a slip that you can cut out that contains th receiver’s name, email and phone number.Always use that strategy.Follow up by sending sms to the slips that you have received from the flyers. That way no flyer or handbill is wasted.

14. SEND BULK SMS: Gather a list of people who attend seminars and then forward a classified ad to them. If it is strong enough, they will call you. I have a powerful ebook that can help you create classified ads and sales letter. Send SALES LETTER to 08187133153 and I would respond to you.c 1

15. ASK FOR REFERRALS: Tell those who attend your seminar to invite people next time. Promise them discount on products or seminar fees.

16. KNOW HOW TO TALK: It all boils down to this. If you can’t give a good presentation, you will have issues having people coming back again. I can help you. I am professional speaker. Sms SPEAKER to 08187133153 and I would get back to you.

If you are outside the country, just send me an email powermindscommunity@yahoo.com

There are many more ways.c 6

I have shared what works for me.

Ubong Essien who puts together PUBLIC SPEAKING SEMINARS charges N50,000 per participant. For him 8 participant is a sell out. To achieve that, he started by interviewing some of the topmost entrepreneurs in Nigeria, including Larry Izamoje of Brilla fm, Bunmi Oni of Cadbury, Pat Utomi of Lagos Business School, Christopher Kolade and many more. He interviewed them for his magazine. They in turn gave him the leverage to put together seminars that can be worth N50,000 per participant.

If this article has been a blessing to you, call me on 08187133153. Cheers.

HOW TO SPEND LESS AND EARN MORE (PART 3)

nAIRA

“For you to make good money globally you must learn two languages: English and Chinese”, Xavier Effiong said to me over lunch of fried rice and chicken at his house.

I halted my fork assault on the chicken mid air.
That statement actually did bring to a meditative halt.

Remember Xavier Effiong, the one I spoke about in part one and part two?

If you missed it, you can look at it in these links https://powermindscommunity.wordpress.com/2013/03/12/how-to-spend-less-earn-more-pt-1/ and https://powermindscommunity.wordpress.com/2013/03/14/how-to-spend-less-and-earn-more-pt-2/

“Forget your native language”, Xavier Effiong continued. “All that is for sentimental reasons. Master English and Chinese for global business relevance.”

I eventually sliced the chicken and ate a piece.

Then another punch line came !

“Your finances are as good as your financial intelligence”, Xavier said to me. “If you don’t have a growing asset portfolio then you are not as financially intelligent as you think you are….If your income is still linear, still dependent on your presence before you can make profit, then your financial intelligence is still low. Very low.The chances of you being rich on paid employment is very slim. It is possible but very slim legitimately. Most employees who suddenly get rich are thieves. They still from their employers – either their employer’s time or their money.”

I had to nod…and then process the thoughts I was receiving.

“And mind you, it has nothing to do with University education or accounting knowledge.I mean the financial knowledge, not University education. I finished with a first class in two Universities so I know what I am saying.” Xavier added.

In recent times I have been unlearning, learning and relearning from a young man I think is the most frugal man in the world. Yes, frugal but with a growing asset portfolio that would open any man’s mouth. All I keep asking him is, “How do you do it?”

Once, he was driving me to see one of his clients and he said to me. ” George Essien do you really want to be rich?”

I turned to look at him, almost surprised, and answered, “Yes?”

“Sure?” He further asked. And I wondered why.

“Yes”, I answered again.

“Then you must focus all your energies in any of the 4 sure vehicles to financial freedom?”

“What are they?” I asked.

“First, THE INTERNET. Yes…master, the internet. Take your offline business online. Sell your products and services online. Learn everything that you can about the internet. The next set of millionaires and billionaires in Nigeria in the next 30 years will come from the internet. Over 20 million Nigerians, sources say, are online every day. There are over 1.2 billion people on the social media around the world.”

“Yeah, “I responded. Since 2011, I have invested hundreds of hours in my internet education. The likes of Dennis Isong and Timothy Anietie also inspired me to begin and to take my offline business online. So I should know what Xavier was saying. By the way, you can get started on your internet education, please read these links and follow instructions to get started: https://powermindscommunity.wordpress.com/2013/03/23/372/ https://powermindscommunity.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/are-you-making-money-on-facebook-or-just-chatting/ https://powermindscommunity.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/how-to-make-money-on-face-book/

“Second,” Xavier said. “Business. Buying and selling. That is the second sure vehicle to financial freedom. …Sam Walton is an example. Walmart, his supermarket /company, makes more money yearly than Exxon Mobil.

“To be rich, sell consumables. Consumables sell faster and are liquid. For example, food, toiletries, clothes etc are examples of consumables. That is the fastest way to succeed in business. Consumables!…never forget that!

“And then, sell products that have HIGH REPEAT ORDER RATE. What that means is that you should be in businesses that people can call you back again and again.”

At this time, I had to grab a note.

“Third, is REAL ESTATE. I made my first N2.2 Million Naira from selling properties. And you don’t need capital to be in real estate. Simply start by being a middle man. Look for the seller and the buyer. Get the transaction and get a commission. That is how I started…and then had capital to buy my first land.

“Lot to talk about there”, Xavier said enthusiastically. “But that is the fastest way making your first million.”

“Interesting”, I nodded, scribbling away.

“Fourth, INVESTMENT. Put your money in shares, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, forex. Another way to rise up financially. Models? Warren Buffet!”

Then he gave a booming laughter.

A lot to talk about this eccentric fellow.

I was being bombarded with info from left right and center.

I asked him whether he would want to be on my TV show and he promised to be on it this Thursday. By 9 am. AKBC TV.

Also, I am thinking of putting together a seminar and having him share these philosophies of his. I have discussed with him. Saturday, April 6, 2013 has been fixed.

The seminar would be free. Yes TOTALLY FREE.

But Xavier wants to work with just 20. As a matter of fact, he said 10. I had to beg him to work 20 because I know that a lot of people would be interested.

To be part of the 20, just send SPEND LESS EARN MORE to 08187133153. Or if you are outside Nigeria, send a mail to powermindscommunity@yahoo.com

Once we have 20, we would close registration.

Do you want to TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR FINANCES?

Then send SPEND LESS EARN MORE to 08187133153 NOW!

Let one I call the most frugal financial guru show you how.

And you had better. The last post I put on INTERNET BUSINESS had several people calling and texting in so do yours now.

All the best.

HOW TO TURN YOUR IDEAS INTO REALITIES

IDEAS 4

When you ask God to make you financially buoyant, He gives you an idea.
When you ask God for a harvest, He gives you a seed. When you ask God for greatness and fame, He gives you a talent.
The birth of an idea could be the emergence of a business empire. The death of a seed could be the death of a forest.
The dormancy of a talent could be the death of greatness.

All that you have is all that you need to get whatever it is you want. Whatever you don’t have, you don’t need. Use what you have right now to get whatever it is that you need.
As a matter of fact, if you can think long enough what you have is enough.

There is a world class idea you possess. It is God’s gift to you. Be sensitive to it. God’s answer to many of your prayers are ideas you have probably ignored.
Every year, at least 4 ideas that are capable of changing our financial status come to us. One idea worked on and realized is all you need to leave your name in the sands of time.

IDEA 3Search for that idea. Write down every idea that comes to you. Take once a week to look at the various ideas you have written. One of them is usually ‘It’. One of them can dramatically change your story. One of them can bring you streams of income. One of them is big enough to be bequeathed to your next generation. Something in your subconscious will tell which one is the one. But you have got to be sensitive to the ideas you are receiving. Are you ignoring ideas? Are you taking note of them?

Never forget this: Ideas are God’s answers to your prayers. Always take note of your ideas. As a matter of fact, your break through idea may be that idea that came with small passion. Yet if you write and brood on all your ideas you will notice it. Some ideas need to be brooded upon for the fire, the potency in them to break out from the literal capsule covering them.
Have a diary and a note pad around you always. Leave it by the stool by your bed even when you sleep. I do.

That is the attitude of expecting God to speak to you through ideas. Also, have a note pad when you read a book, when you read the Bible or when you are listening to a sermon or inspired message. Always take notes.

Now, let me show you other ways to turn your ideas into realities. Didn’t get the first? The first is to WRITE IDEAS DOWN. Why? Because the first time your ideas become real is when they are written on paper. That is the beginning process. Writing is creation. It is the beginning process of putting ‘flesh to the word’.

That said, here is the next one. Draft out your ideas into GOALS. Simply put, a goal is an idea with a deadline. You see, deadlines inspire positive tension. When there is this tension, this pressure, everything in you begins to move. This movement inspires energy and this energy is your power to succeed.

Goals facilitate the realization of an idea. It is an idea projected and fixed with a deadline. It keeps the idea always in mind. That is the second way to begin. Write out the idea then make it a goal. Fix a deadline for its accomplishment.

Third, create a PLAN. A plan is an idea drafted out. A plan is a series of actions you will take. Success begins with a plan. A plan tells you the people you are suppose to meet or call. A plan tells you the skills you must acquire, the books you must read, the seminars you must attend, the education you must get. The success of any idea is in the plan, not necessarily in the execution. If the plan is right and accurate, execution would not be as hard. The reason for most failures is inaccurate plan. Success isn’t by hard work but by smart work. Success is work intelligently directed.

Fourth, develop a STRATEGY. A strategy is an idea drafted out with outwitting the competition or obstacle at the back of your mind. Strategy is greater than a plan. It is developing action plans that overcome every possible obstacle that may arise. Strategy is a military term. It answers questions on paper. It anticipates difficulties. It looks for an entry point into the market place in spite of the competition.

Fifth, take ACTION. An action is a moving idea. Ideas, on their own, have a short life span. They can fizzle out quickly. Our initiatives are what sustain ideas. Actions – continuous and consistent actions – is the breath of life of any idea. An idea is useless if it is not bombarded with actions. The hope of an idea is the action backing it.
There are a lot to talk about ideas but for space. Like the fact that you are probably ONE IDEA away from your major breakthrough. Like the fact just one idea can make an entire difference is your life. Like the fact that there are 8 different kinds of ideas. Like the fact that ideas have the capacity to live longer than the brains that gave birth to them. Like the fact that when a man of money meets a man of ideas EXCHANGE invariably occurs. Like the fact that every idea experiences 6 evolutions. Like the fact that ideas have strong magnetic tendencies. And many more!….But for space.IDEAS 1

I hope, however, you picked some ideas from what has been shared already. JUST DO THEM. You will succeed.

Are you Making money on Facebook – or just chatting?

GOALS
For me,going to work and working, 75 percent of the day, is usually infront of a laptop, a desk top or fidling with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.

I am a netpreneur.

I am either on google…searching for the 20th page of an information i searched on google…looking for info others failed to patiently dig out.

By the way, do you realize that most people looking for info on google, don’t go pass page 2 ?

Companies who are looking for you to market their products/services and who can negotiate deals with you are in the 20th to 1000millionth page.

The ones on the 1st and 2nd pages of google are big companies and can do with or without your dealing with them.Trust me on that.

Always go pass the first 3 pages everytime you search for info, whatever it may be.

Just gave you a powerful online surfing strategy.

Did you catch it?Hmmm. You had better o.lol.

Or I am on ebay. (Yes http://www.ebay.com) looking for how to aunction a particular product.

Or on Amazon. (Yes http://www.amazon.com). Loads of products there.

Or on my avenues to wealth business. http://www.avenuestowealth.com/powermindsplus

Or I am just blogging. Connecting with thousands of people on wordpress or blogger.com. Visit these sites http://www.wordpress.com or http://www.blogger.com. Sign up, if you will.

I make some cash from blogging too.streams

If ever I am on facebook, I am making money!

Money hits my account on every pratical day. It may not be so much but the culmulative at the end of the month is huge!

I am not talking about any online account……nope, I am talking about my Nigerian BANK account.I receive the alerts on my phone and I can go to any ATM and pick it at the time I want.

For me, work on the field is 25 percent.

And that is when I have to travel to speak somewhere which also I get paid handsomely for.

Don’t get the idea wrong.
I am not talking about millions here.
Nope.

I am talking about enough thousands of Naira to make me not want to work for anyone as an employee.

Enough to pay my bills…and still have free time on my hands.

In the last one month ,sincerely, it has been good.

So you see me almost all the time online and you are wondering, what is he always doing online?

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ON FACE BOOK

streamsHOW I MADE N498,100 BETWEEN JULY AND AUGUST 2012 FROM MY ACTIVITIES ON FACE BOOK.

I have this personal finance records booklet that i created to help me track my income and expenses.I started using it since 2008 and have gotten very familiar with it.Those who are close to me know that i can account for every single Naira that leaves my pocket.When I started doing this practice in 2008, it was difficult for me, and my income was slim but i did it.

It is a simple booklet that contains my income in one page and my expenses on the next page.I record who gave me money or where money was gotten from every single day.If the money didn’t come then i know that i didn’t sell something that day.We have this serious joke in PowerMinds: No cash, no sales; no sales , no cash. At the end of each day i total my income as well as my expenses and determine a figure.I also do it at the end of each month to determine my financial net worth.

In August 2012,the very last day, when i was doing my end of the month personal fiance auditing, I noticed that I had received up to N312,800 from my activities on facebook.

Interesting.

It wasn’t a very deliberate effort, so I checked back the previous month and realized that i had received N 185,300 from my activities on face book.Making a sum total of N498,100 in those two months.

That really got me thinking.

How did this happen?

I don’t pride myself as one who is an expert in online business.As a matter of fact, I MADE THIS N498,100 without really knowing it and without much effort until I checked my record booklet.It occurred to me that i was doing somethings that generated a lot of money for me on FACEBOOK.

Recently, I wanted to be sure that it wasn’t just a fluke so i set a goal to make N20,000 through Facebook in a week.I needed to be sure that i had discovered something.Believe me, I made N42,000 instead of the N20,000 that i set.

My financial antennae went up.

It occurred to me that i had discovered something.

So I called a friend who I knew was a guru in online business and shared my testimony.He simply said that I had simply stumbled upon an opportunity that most internet marketers use and make millions from.

Could this be true?

Now, I have not made millions yet from this opportunity.As a matter of fact, I recently just set a goal to raise a million Naira (Nigeria Currency, that is equivalent 4,000 Pounds.The money I made is about 2,000 pounds) using my new found knowledge before the end of the year.But I also want to teach 50 interested Facebook friends what I have learnt so far.Well, since I am into human development , why shouldn’t I?

But here is the deal.

I will give away this info for a small fee. I want to give that info for just N1,000 ONLY. For those outside the country Nigeria, that is about 4 pounds. and about $8 for those in America(cheap, right?)And the offer last till Friday.I have travelled around Nigeria and when I sell this info it goes for N5,000(That is about 20 pounds or 45 dollars).So take advantage of this my offering.

Pay the sum of N1,000 to George Essien.FIDELITY BANK. Account
Number: 6013498428. Once done, sms teller number, with your name and email address to 08187133153

For those outside the country, simple moneygram it. But first call the number 2348187133153. I will pick up the phone directly.

You have till Friday to make this payment.The price goes up back to its original price N5,000 after Friday 23rd March 2013.

Now, I am very sure that hundreds of people will START RUSHING TO THE BANK TO MAKE PAYMENTS.So please dont fail to send the Teller number and your correct email address.The info preoduct would be sent to your email almost immediately once payment is confirmed.spend less 3

And here is a freebie I will add if you make payment. I will give you 4 extra eBooks that will help you in life.These ebooks cost me money to get.One is on HOW TO IMPORT STUFF FROM CHINA AND SELL AT A HIGHER PRICE ANYWHERE ELSE.One other ebook is on HOW TO WRITE A WINNING SALES LETTER.

And believe me, unless you are an internet guru, you probably have never heard of ONLINE AUCTIONING and other sweet secrets that I would want to keep until you make your payment.

You don’t need a website to make it happen.YOU JUST NEED AN EMAIL ADDRESS! A WEBSITE address will be an added advantage.With your facebook account or free blog which i can create or show you how to, you can tap into this opportunity.

As for those who want my INFOPRODUCT which I assure will help you out, do what I have said immediately.You have till Friday the 23rd of this month.Cheers.

Is the New Pope The New Hope?

popeFor the records, I am not a Catholic.But I respect this institution that has lasted for more than 1,000 years.

I am not a Pentecostal either.I am a bit irritated by their arrogance and claim that they are the only ones we will see in heaven.

I choose to be simply a member of the body of Christ.A christian, who, of course , fellowships with the brethren as instructed by the Holy Scriptures.

Now to the issue.
Yeah , the pope.Pope Francis.
Simple jolly fellow, isn’t he?You saw him yesterday at the Vatican Balcony.

He typified humility. A conservative Jesuit member whose stance against gays and abortion was made clear even as an arch bishop in Argentina.Interesting to know, in deed.

The gay controversy rocked the Catholic church in the last moments of Pope Emeritus Benedict xvi.The resignation of a Bishop from Europe was on the news.

Perhaps former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now, Pope Francis will take a firm stand reflecting the Roman Catholic’s stand on the gay issue.

Another thing.The former Pope was against the use of condoms during sexual intercourse with marital couples.His stand was made clear again and again on Vatican radio stations.

But Pope Francis is of the opinion that contraceptives can be used, especially for the prevention of diseases. Sexually transmitted diseases.

Still, the first thing Pope Francis said was for the people to pray for the Emeritus pope; a sign of honour and respect that, I must say, I appreciate.

Then he asked for the people to pray for him as he assumes his papal office.Another true sign of humility.

A few facts about this new pope.

He is 76 and in the last 20 years has lived on one lung.
He would be leading 1.2 billion members of the Catholic church.
He is Argentine.The first Jesuit to become pope. He is also the first non European to be pope since Apostle Peter of the Bible.

He was runner up during the last conclave that elected Pope Emeritus Benedict xvi.

The world perhaps hopes that Pope Francis would be like Pope John Paul, the consummate diplomat.The pope who went to a mosque, a Hindu temple and visited many countries. He was shot but came back from the bullet wound and still forgave the man who shot him.

Will Pope Francis be another Pope John Paul?
Or would he remain true to himself, and show us another dimension of papal leadership that will redefine history.

Time will tell.
We hope.

HOW TO SPEND LESS AND EARN MORE PT 2

The government will not like you to know what is on page 174 of Xavier Effiong’s book.Remember, the meeting I had with him and shared with you? If you have not. Just scroll down and look for HOW TO SPEND LESS AND EARN MORE PT 1.

Politicians will not be happy that you know what is on page 178.

Your employer will be uncomfortable that you have read page 193.

Your girl friend or wife will not like you to know what is on page 21-23

Other members of your profession will wish you never read page 201

Advertisers and marketers who come to talk you into buying something will not be happy to see you read page 56.With page 101 to 106 at your finger tips, fraudsters and con artist know they have lost your business

You may lose some friends if you practice what is on page 107 to 112.

I talking about the book titled SPEND LESS, EARN MORE. Xavier Effiong’s book. I told you about him in part one of this series.

3 Copies of SPEND LESS EARN MORE have already sold after they read my facebook post about the meeting i had with Xavier Effiong 8 years ago.I received a call from one Samuel and Peter and Adaobi. Praise called me from Bayelsa today to ask about the book.She is making payment and I would obviously ship it to her

Yeah it is a good book.A very good book.If I say it is believe me it is.

Tells you a lot about your finance, Nigerian style…not Robert Kiyosaki stuff; though I am a big fan of Kiyosaki.

All those credit cards stuff and western foreign funds plan has put them in deep mess.Nigerians pay cash. We talk with hard raw cash, not credits or credit card. So while we can pick one or two ideas from our western brothers, we must realize that the way things run here in Nigeria is far different.

I would like you to get the book.
This is no sales pitch.

Money back guarantee.If you think that I over-hyped the book, tell me, and I would personally return the money you paid.

Most Nigerian authors just copy and paste Robert Kiyosaki.Not Xavier Effiong. The philosophy has been tested by him.He is not just a millionaire in theory, he is a millionaire in reality.

Want the book?

Quite expensive, though. But worth the price.It is N2500. That is about $18 or about 10 Pounds.

To get a copy call 08187133153

I noticed that many folks were calling from outside Uyo.So if you are calling from outside Uyo, here is what to do.Add N1000 to the amount. Pay N2500 + N1000(for transport of the hard copy book) to :

George Essien.

HOW TO SPEND LESS EARN MORE Pt 1

We first met 8 years ago.

Time flies indeed.
I have tried to be its pilot.

When I first met him, he was not ‘comely’ to behold. This choclate skinned, lanky framed figure of a man rode on his Yamaha motor bike to come see me at M2 (male Hostel) in the University of Uyo where I lodged at the time.

I had been surprised that he had aggreed to meet there.So much had been said of him to me by friend. I was told that he was a financial guru and teacher.

The year was 2005.

The day was litted with twilight glory as it ground ‘carefreely’ to an end.

Xavier Effiong put off his bike, highlighted from it to come shake hands with me.Was this the finacial guru and teacher I was expecting? To say the least, I was thoroughly dissapointed, as I guessed any other person would.

“I have heard so much about you”, Xavier began.

And yes indeed he had.Those at the University of Uyo at the time would know that George Essien was reputed as one who put together success seminars with a huge number of students gathering.

“I think you can help me,” he continued. “I have a financial philosophy that I am confident your students need to hear. I would like you to call for a meeting so that i can talk to them”

I gave him a cusory look.And that was it!

I didnt hear any other thing he said to me in the next one hour except a silent prayer that this fellow would quit talking and leave.Unfortunately, I had ignored a philosophy that today i have come to thoroughly embrace.

I had ignored him because of his packaging.

Today, I shamelessly admit that packaging is deceptive.There is more to a person than that that meets the eyes.

As he came to a close, something he said caught my attention.

He asked, “Do you have a girl friend?”

“A girl friend?Yes?”, I muttered. “Why do you ask?”

“Liability.” He just said, as he ranted on.

Today, almost 8 years later i now understand what he said and meant then. A LIABILITY IS ANYTHING OR ANYONE WHO TAKES MONEY AWAY FROM YOU OR HAS A HIGH MAINTENANCE VALUE.

A student, as I was then, with limited assets and resources should have been building his asset portfolio by buying up small shares here and there, or saving up to start a business….instead of giving those seeming small funds away to a girlfriend.

I have seen Xavier Effiong grow over the years with that same financial philosophy he tried to share with me 8 years ago.

He bought a brand new car, and instead of using it for luxury, he quickly used to do hard core marketing.Meeting companies to serve as their independent sales representative and travelling around Nigeria on road selling their products and services.

He built a house and furnished it to taste and instead of living in it, converted it into a school. A nursey school that brings him a sizeable income.

He still is lean and lanky, frugal and wise, yet unless Xavier Effiong tells of the complex asset portfolios that runs into millions that he has, you may never know.

In recent times I have been living with him to glean from his financial wisdom.2 days ago, he taught a new term called BOOTSTRAPPING. Ever heard the word before? Okay, in part 2 of this series I would tell you about it.

Financial prosperity is not accidental, it is intentional.
It is not by luck but by work.

You grow your wealth by building your asset portfolio and reducing your liabilities. What are these terms? Let me keep you in suspense and tell you about it in the next part.

Meanwhile, Xavier has put all that philosophy that has made him a millionaire into a book he titles SPEND LESS, EARN MORE. It is a 200 paged book of practical financial wisdom with Nigerian examples, many his own.

I highly recommend it.

The cost? O it is N2500. That is about 10 POUNDS OR about 18 dollars.

Want a copy?

Just call 2348187133153.

See as we continue this series.
