I know we’re all in the holiday mood and I trust some of us have already started travelling, going for parties, making our Christmas hair and buying new clothes…lol. Please remember my Christmas gift o!…and do not forget to show some love this season, yes! Show some love. You must be wondering what I mean by that since it’s a season of love and everybody already has that notion;so I’m going to break it down – how we can show love this season. I know we have entrepreneurs in the house; it doesn’t hurt to give discounts or freebies this season. I know someone who did that last year and guess what happened?There was an overflow of customers and clients this year. Try it out and you may be shocked at the response you get. For those that offer services either in an organization or own businesses, please try to be extra polite, smile a little bit more, say ‘Compliments of the Season’ to customers and go the extra mile to put a smile on someone’s face – even if it’s just one person a day. *smiles* I know we can! ...

“All you need is someone to believe in you” – The Jimi Tewe Story

Jimi Tewe is a mentor and someone I always look forward to learning from. Thank you Jimi Tewe for letting us share this amazing story on this platform. Be Inspired… I’m a man of many parts. From a professional point of view, I run an organisation called Inspiro Consulting. It’s an HR and career services organisation and has been running for 6 years. Prior to that, I had worked with different organisations in consulting and banking at senior management levels. Today, I do a lot of career coaching, counselling, and public speaking. I also pastor the Lekki arm of my church, Kingsword International Church. I’m an author of 5 published books. The truth is, I wasn’t always like this. I remember some time ago, my mum called me and said there was a friend of hers that wanted to speak with me. So the woman was given the phone. I knew her when I was in Secondary school. This is how the conversation went: Mum’s friend: “Hello, is this Jimi?” Me: “Good afternoon ma. How are you ma?” Mum’s friend: “My children have been telling me about one Jimi Tewe that is going around talking everywhere and I was like ...

Great advice from the Richest person in China, Mr. Jack Ma

This man is someone I always want to listen to, I look for every opportunity to learn from him. I saw this post on social media and I just thought to share with BIE readers. Be inspired… Jack Ma says, “Please tell your children that the world is changing every day and no one is going to wait for you in the past. When lighter was invented, matches slowly disappeared. When calculator was created, abacus was to fade away. When digital camera was designed, the market of negative film no longer existed. When direct market selling/internet-based selling arises, traditional marketing declines. When smartphone with 4G (wireless internet access) was introduced to the world, you no longer need to turn on your computer at home. When WeChat and WhatsApp (mobile text/voice/video messaging) are developed, traditional text messaging is no longer as popular as before. Let’s not to blame “Who took over Whose business.” It’s only because people are more adjustable and adaptable to new ideas and changes in the world. Someone asks Jack Ma, “What is your secret for success?” He says, “Really simple…I am doing (action) while you’re only watching.” Please remember that the world keeps changing every day. If ...

Personal Goal Setting(Pt 1) – Tokunbo Fasoro

A few days ago, I sat down and began to analyze my life in 2016. I am grateful to God that I set goals and achieved most of them. I also learn’t a lot of lessons along the way, some very hard but more importantly, it has helped me re-evaluate my journey to determine if I am headed in the right direction or not. These lessons would also stand as a guide for me in 2017. For some people who may feel that their course has been slightly deterred or even derailed, see the New Year as a fresh start to re-establish your goals and start the process of creating the path you desire. Personal goal setting helps us evaluate what we like about our lives and what we wish to change; then forces us to focus on how we can achieve that change for ourselves. Why Set Goals? 1. It helps us evaluate what we want out of life. 2. It gives us a clearer view of where we are and a step by step guide to achieving them. 3. It helps us focus on specific targets. 4. Well thought out goals helps us organize our time and our ...

Working Your Way into Career Success – Tokunbo Fasoro

A lot of us make mistakes in our career choices because we do not plan. We assume that our grades can get us to our target careers.
