Is that goal looking unachievable?? – Tokunbo Fasoro

I was doing a write up two days ago about my life, growing up, and I remember this certain period of my life when it just looked impossible to pass Mathematics. I just thought to share on how I was able to overcome that challenge with BIE readers. When I was in primary school, I wasn’t an extraordinary student, but I was always toping the class in Mathematics; I always scored a hundred percent. I remember the event that led to the day I scored 98% in Mathematics. The classmate who sat beside me asked me for the answer to a question, I didn’t want to tell her, so I deceived her. I wrote the wrong answer on my answer script and planned to change it later, but unfortunately I forgot to correct it so I lost the two marks. Serves me right, right? Back to my story, I then got into secondary school, but unfortunately, my school had no math teacher from JSS 1 to JSS 3. We just played during the math period. I was in boarding school, so young and naïve, consequently I didn’t realize or see any need to tell my parents about it. So I started failing math from first term JSS 1. Of course, I failed my junior WAEC when the school  ‘solved the problem’ by just bringing in a corper to teach us two weeks to our junior WAEC. How ...

Tokunbo Fasoro Shares On The Most Important Quality Of An Entrepreneur. ‎

As a CEO, technically I have no boss, or let me put it this way; I do not report to anyone. Many times you are tempted to sleep longer or defer resumption time, (after all, no one would question or query me) but you just ensure that you jump off that bed, into the shower and get to work. Sometimes you just feel like throwing on a T-shirt and shorts with a pair of sneakers to work and of course, as CEO, you will not get queried, instead, you put on your smart professional ensemble and get to work. Most importantly, when you have a lot of work to do and you have no one checking up on you, yet you wake up early or work late into the night to ensure you get that work done. Everything boils down to discipline. Discipline is important in every aspect of our lives in order for us to be successful. Many successful people attribute their success to discipline. For them, more than knowledge, communication and skill, discipline played a major role in their success story. I have put together some notes on the benefits of discipline. Achieving focus: Being disciplined helps one stay focused on work, activities or goals. Respect from others: Many struggle to gain respect from ...

3 Women That inspired me to venture into Entrepreneurship – Tokunbo Fasoro

Venturing into Entrepreneurship wasn’t an easy decision for me especially when I had spent time and resources gathering as much education and knowledge as I could in my area of expertise, knowing that I could earn a very good living working with those certificates. As much as I was afraid of the unknown, I knew I wanted more. I wanted to build a platform where I could do more; I didn’t want to be constrained by an employment contract. I had dreams I wanted to explore, amazing ideas I kept expanding in my head but even with all these, I was afraid. I said to myself many times that I needed to see God physically telling me “this is the way you should go” but you know, God uses people to speak to us. I will be sharing today about 3 women who inspired me to venture and lessons I learnt from them. Ayodeji Megbope: She is the C.E.O of No left over’s Nigeria Ltd- A full scale catering outfit which started with a takeoff capital of just One Thousand Naira (N1, 000.00), but today has an annual turnover that runs into millions of naira. The business had exposed her ...

Passion- Oluwadare

“Success is the ability to go from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” – ​Sir Winston Churchill While the above quote is very apt in our day to day lives, the big question is “What is Enthusiasm?” The advanced English Dictionary defines enthusiasm as “a feeling of excitement and a lively interest.” Furthermore, the word ‘enthusiasm’ has synonyms such as fire, gusto, passion and zeal among others. That is why motivational speakers commonly advise individuals to do something they are passionate about. However, as Kunle Sorinyan, a life coach, asserted, not all passions are commercially viable. For example, your passion may be watching football, but, sitting down to watch football all day long might not be an economically viable idea, unless you own the sports bar. Consequently, the right counsel for entrepreneurs or prospective ones should be, “be passionate about what you do .” Here is where lots of people have a challenge; they think passion is inborn, but I beg to disagree. I dare say, you are passionate about what you have given time and attention to. For instance, I disliked boxing while growing up, because I thought it was uninteresting watching two men jogging around the ring, and throwing occasional punches at themselves. Nevertheless, during my ...

How Do You Deal With A Toxic Co-Worker?

Let’s start with reality. We all are going to have to deal with toxic co-workers from time to time in our career. I can’t say I was 100% successful with any of these strategies, but here is a step by step way to deal with a toxic co-worker: Befriend your toxic co-worker. In other words, as painful as it may be, try and build a relationship of trust with your toxic co-worker. Sometimes people act out because they are alone. Having a friend makes anyone feel better. If this doesn’t work then I recommend… Talking to your toxic co-worker about the problem. This is not easy to do, but factually, without emotion, explain to your toxic co-worker the issues you are having. Two key things here: Don’t gang up on your toxic co-worker. This needs to be a one on one conversation. You will screw it up, and you will be at fault, if you bring more people into the mix. Don’t expect your toxic co-worker to agree with your assessment of the situation. He/She is likely to disagree with you. Stay calm and don’t argue back. Sometimes a little time may do the trick. If none of the above ...

What Opportunity Can I See? The Mind Of An Entrepreneur – Opeyemi Komolafe

Listening to the news and people around me, what I hear is how jobs are being lost and businesses are being shut down because of the ‘recession’, I wonder why everyone is so frantic! About 10 years ago, there was a conversation that my mother had with me. My takeaway from that talk resounds in my mind almost everyday. Amongst the many things she said, I always remember her say ” Opeyemi” (she only calls my full name when she is dead serious or I am in deep trouble……..) “If your certificates were taken away from you, have you really thought about what you can do to generate income”? I was quite surprised at her question because I had graduated with a good result and companies had already started headhunting the group of us right from school. She went on to say “Multiple streams of income will always be an asset to you”. In the world of today, that phrase, ‘multiple streams of income’ has become a household slogan. Everyone is now under pressure to generate income from all sources by all means available. It is great if you have a salaried job, fantastic if you have a side business, ...
