THE POWER OF A DREAM – Tokunbo Fasoro

You can do it

I read a book titled the “Nigeria of my dream” written by Sam Adeyemi (Who actually is one of my mentors) While reading, I came across some inspiring and powerful quotes on ‘The power of dreaming” I thought to share with our BIE Readers. This could change a readers mindset forever. “There is nothing that man has created that did not exist first as a mental picture in picture in somebody’s mind” “A leader sees farther and further than anybody else. He or she has the capacity to see things, not just the way they are but the way they could be” “This world would never move forward without those who can see glory in the midst of shame”     “The moment a dream or a vision takes shape in your heart, the resources needed to make that vision a reality begins to flow towards you” “A dream inspires you to be persistent and to try again when you experience temporary setbacks” “What you believe is what you become” “What stops us from succeeding most of the time is not what we think we are but what we think we are not” Someone start dreaming! It actually all starts ...

Networking Series (2) : “Creating Relationships” – Tokunbo Fasoro

The most important professional/business activity we engage in is networking. One sunny afternoon, I decided to go to the construction site to oversee how the renovations were going on an office space we just acquired. We had been cracking our heads on how we were going to partition it. This had become a big problem to us. As I parked my car, I saw a young woman just coming in too. I smiled at her and asked if she was a tenant as well. She said “Yes” and we got talking. We talked about her business then proceeded to talk about mine. I told her what I was passionate about and took her to the space we just acquired in the building. I went on to tell her how we would like to have a graduate school, and about how we intend to rent seminar rooms for that purpose. She immediately asked me, “Why don’t you not save your self some money and partition a training room out of this space?”. BOOM! That was it. I immediately changed all the designs. That decision saved us millions of naira. I am glad I smiled and spoke with her that day. Networking ...

The Big “C” (CONNECTION) – Zika Nwaise

Many times, we feel the big ‘C’ is what gets us jobs. Well, maybe in the past! These days everyone wants employees who can actually deliver on the job after getting the job. Even if the big “C” is going to get you the job, you must be able to prove you can be trusted with the responsibility and deliver on that job. Let’s quickly take a look at what comes before the big “CONNECTION”. Most youths say “you can only get the great jobs based on who you know, not by your qualifications nor how well your interview went”. But the question is ‘how do you know who you know?’ You probably know a lot of people and vice versa but the crux of the relationship is what these people think about you! Do they know you as that unreliable friend who takes things for granted? Or as that friend who takes up responsibilities and ensures that you get things done in good time. Are you too proud to engage in a friendly conversation with people you meet? Your next opportunity to network might be at a casual party, and who knows, you just might be sitting next to ...

Ex-Queen of Drugs Speaks With The Bi Empowerment Team

Abbey, a pleasant young lady with a great smile, is someone I met at a women’s meeting where she shared her story. It was like watching a Nigerian home video, and I just could not get over the fact that it was indeed real. I got an appointment with her, and she didn’t mind sharing her story with the BI Empowerment team to help inspire the youths. BI Team: “Thank you Ms. Abbey for the opportunity, Can we get to know you”? Abbey: “I am Abiodun Bello, the fifth child from my father, and the second child from my mother. You can say I am a half caste; a Nigerian half caste (laughing), partly Delta, partly Yoruba. BI Team:  “Can you tell us a little bit about growing up?” Abbey: “I went to school like every other child, even though it was not the way I wanted to be. You see, I was treated like an outcast even in my father’s house by my step mum”. BI Team:  “Would you say your rough childhood pushed you into drugs?” Abbey: “I was deprived of a lot of things including food, I actually grew up in a home where we had everything ...

Well done GTBANK – the Food and Drink Fair was a Blast

I got a message from GTBank inviting me for a Food & Drink Fair. I went there with a friend and guess what I was so impressed at what we saw. “GTBank giving back” GTBank encouraged young food business to showcase ‎what they can do. They empowered young startups and inspired a lot of young people who would want to venture into something like that. Everything done was of high standards, done with a touch of excellence and class. I was indeed Inspired. Asides the exhibition & sales part of the event, the GTBank Food & Drink Fair also featured culinary experiences such as food and wine tastings, cooking master classes with renowned International and Nigerian chefs such as Marcus Samuelsson (Chopped Judge), Raphael Duntoye (La Petite Maison, London), Tiyan Alile (Culinary Academy), Alex Oke (Alex Cooks Food), Gbubemi Fregene (Chef Fregz), Ozoz Sokoh (Kitchen Butterfly), Uzo Orimalade (Uzo’s Food Labs), Atim Ukoh (Afrolems), Iquo Ukoh (1Q Foodplatter), Michael Adé Elẹgbẹdé (Chef Elegbede) as well as outdoor grills, thrilling entertainment, kiddies activity and Baking classes.

My Journey so far – An Ex Drug Addict Tega Omugor tells her Story to the BI Empowerment Team

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 school will reset my brain ...
