5 reasons why you should follow your Passion.

Solar Media

Follow your Passion and success will follow I kept watching the photographer during a photo-shoot and all I could see was passion. Ironically, he came into our office quite ill. He said he had a headache and his body ached but during the shoot it seemed like an untruth. It looked to me that he was not even conscious of how he felt and he just kept going; climbing stools, kneeling and lying down to shoot. All I could see was a guy that is extremely passionate about what he does. I then asked him a question? “You seem to be very happy with what you do” and he said to me, “I enjoy every moment of it” He went on to tell me that he studied Microbiology and graduated with a second class upper, but unfortunately, Microbiology is not his thing. “I am a very creative person who gets pleasure from designing stuff” he said. That was how he knew he needed to do something else. He discovered photography and the shooting of videos. He fell in love with it and started attending functions – shooting for free. Here he is today, a successful entrepreneur! Now the question is: ...

Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program

Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program

The Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program – Mentoring over 5000 youths every year INTRODUCTION The Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program was borne out of a need to reach out to a larger number of youths. Over the years, I have interviewed a large number of graduates for diverse positions in different organizations and have discovered that they lack the basic skills required, even for an entry level job. This stirred up a great concern in me and a drive to proffer solutions. There was an obvious gap between the academic environment and workplace that needed to be filled. This led to the birth of the BI Graduate School where graduates were trained and equipped for free. This School eventually birthed BI Empowerment; a virtual and physical platform with a mandate to bridge the gap between the academic environment and workplace through various free empowerment programs. These programs include sponsored training, workshops, inspirational talks, meetings with successful professionals who share real-life experiences that help youth in their personal and professional lives etc. This platform (www.biempowerment.com) has a readership of young to mid-level professionals from all parts of the world. It also provides job opportunities, career mentoring and advisory services all for ...

Don’t be AFRAID to MOVE By Opeyemi Komolafe

Its time to move

IT IS TIME TO MOVE!!!!!!!!! I have a dear friend struggling with his job. He has taken a break from his career to help another friend get a start up company up and running. He gave himself a year to help them set up systems and structures then he will pull out and refocus on building his brand professionally. Right now he is at an impasse, or so it seems. His friend and the other partners are the most disorganized, uncommitted, unavailable and under performing bunch he has ever worked with. It has been over a year, and due to their inability to execute projects planned and to adopt recommendations made he hasn’t achieved anything. He wants to leave and focus on his own career, but knows that the second he walks away, the entire company will fold up. Knowing that a sign of failure in leadership is if things collapse in your absence, he is seemingly between the devil and the deep blue sea. IT IS TIME TO MOVE From experience, I have learned that a lot of high achieving professionals are caught in similar situations. They hang onto dissatisfying, dead-end jobs because they are afraid to make a ...

BEYOND THE JOB, WHAT CAN YOU DO?

BEYOND THE JOB, WHAT CAN YOU DO

BEYOND THE JOB, WHAT CAN YOU DO? I have mentioned in one of my previous posts how my mother sat me down one day and asked me “Opeyemi, if your certificates were taken away from you today, what skill have you acquired that can make money for you?” Needless to say, that statement echoes in my mind everyday. We live in a society that is basically focused of the number and variety of certificates you have, and this has driven the average individual towards getting more and more certificates/certifications. While getting extra certifications are good, it is more important to acquire skills that meet the needs of your current environment. Certificates are currently so sought after that at some point (a lot of employers are getting to this point already) the employer asks you at the point of entry, “Beyond what your CV states, if we employ you, what can you contribute to our team? What value can you bring to the table? What gives you an edge over the other candidates? What makes you an invaluable asset?” WHAT SOLUTION CAN YOU PROVIDE? The X-Factor that makes you different. Beyond the workplace, what solution can you provide, that will make ...

IT’S OK TO START AFRESH By Opeyemi Komolafe

It's Ok to start afresh

IT’S OK TO START AFRESH… I recently did something very bold… I cut my hair and I don’t mean the cute little cut like the popular Ms Baker, I mean the really low, untexturised, school boy haircut. I looked at myself in the mirror and my first reaction was “Jesus Christ, what did I just do?” Before I finally settled on the actual reality. My hair, the hair I had nurtured, pampered, invested so much in was gone!!!!! I was back to square one. The actual truth is that in the state my hair was, there was no future. I was just bathing, trimming and giving a pedicure to a dead horse. It was a hard reality to face but was the best decision to take. Bringing this back to us, there are things that we might have committed ourselves to; a certain career, a business, a relationship etc but we are failing miserably at (in spite of all attempts to make it work), it might be time to cut the umbilical cord and start afresh. Lots of times, we stick with that flailing, dying, frustrating, destructive ………………..( fill in the gap) because we are afraid to start over. Read ...
