In other words, if you want a job today, the hard work starts when you prepare for the interview. That means not just nailing the interview questions you are asked, but actually asking the kinds of questions designed to make the interviewer sit up and take notice. It’s no longer enough to be qualified. If you want to stand out in today’s job market you have to show your excellence by asking excellent questions.

THE MONEY VALUE OF TIME

The Money Value of Time

By Opeyemi Komolafe A pretty popular cliche I hear is, “The time value of money”. I’ve never spent time analyzing this statement because I never had to, anyway, the object of my discourse is ‘The Money Value of Time.’ A few days ago, I dropped my children in school and was on my way when I came across an NNPC mega station. The queue for fuel was as long as the eyes could see and as endless as one could imagine. I needed fuel, but drove by and went to another which sold at N180 per liter…….No queue by the way!!! I truly started to wonder how a child of God possessing invaluable time with a purpose in life would spend two (2) days on a queue just to save an extra N35 per liter!!!!!!! Some people will eventually get a turn and buy twenty (20) liters, thus saving a mere N700!!!!!!! I understand that N700 is 2 dollars as such, can feed the poorest families in Nigeria for 2 days, but, if you own a car, or drive a car, you do not fall into that income bracket in anyway. Wasting all that time on a queue is wasting ...

MY Time, My Money and My Energy

How to get a job through networking

By Tokunbo Fasoro As a child, Tiger Woods stuttered and for two years took after-school classes to correct his stuttering. Read what Tiger Woods had to say about his stuttering, “I know what it’s like to be different, and to sometimes not fit in. I stuttered as a child and I would always talk to my dog. He would sit there and listen until he fell asleep. I also took a class for two years to help me until I finally learned to stop.” Very few people have it all. We all have areas in our lives were we are struggling, but most times we ignore this things and continue to live like that when we can actually decide to put in some extra effort, invest a little time, or make a sacrifice by spending some money on fixing it. We may even need to invest in all of them- our Time, our Energy and our Money to ensure that those limiting areas in our lives are sorted. I want BIE readers to take out time to ask, “What area of my life do I need to invest in that will make me a better person”? Or “What aspect of ...

How I Recovered From Drug Addiction

Addiction

By T.  Omugor I was reading an article on the effects of smoking and taking in harmful substances and I can only be grateful to God I don’t have any of those. I was an extremely intelligent girl in school, my teachers and family would say I was a gifted child. The sky wasn’t even my stepping stone at the rate my brain functioned. At the time I wrote National Common Entrance I was number three in the whole nation and my parents actually expected more because they knew what God had bestowed upon me. When I got into secondary school, I was still doing well but I had become a ‘Gucci girl'( a clique in school). We were among the funky/cool/popular ones. In most sets, there’s always that clique. We hung out together, partied a lot and became very unserious with my academics. By the time I was leaving school, with all my truancy and misbehavior I nicely got 4Ps and 4Fs. That could never get me into any institution. Before then, I went for the holidays in Kano to stay with my older sister and so when I heard my result was out, I bluntly refused to return to Lagos because I knew my oldest sister who had slaved to send me through ...

Nothing Should Stop You From Achieving Your Goal

Tokunbo Fasoro

BY 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 achieve a certain goal. 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 ...

How Do You Know If You’ll Be Successful

success

By Brett Fox When times were really rough, I would get Avery’s magic eight ball. I would ask it, “Do you think we’re going to be a  success?” I would shake the eight ball and wait for the answer to appear in the triangle. The answer came back, “Prospect Good.” My fear was over for a day. The magic eight ball said we were going to be okay. Then, the next day I would shake the magic eight ball again. This time the answer came back, “No.” “It must be a mistake,” I said to myself. “Today, it’s the best two out of three.” So, I shook the magic eight ball again, and this time it came back, “Yes!”. I breathed a sigh of relief, but I still had one more shake to go. So I shook the magic eight ball really, really hard and this time it came back, “Maybe.”   And that about sums up the life of an entrepreneur, doesn’t it? It’s a big maybe. Unfortunately, no one can tell you, not even the magic eight ball, whether or not you’re going to succeed. But there are leading indicators. Here are my eight leading indicators of entrepreneurial ...
