NO PAIN, NO GAIN – Tokunbo Fasoro

Last week Monday, I left my house, situated at a certain area in Lagos by 5:27am. I had a training commencing at 8:00am, but I was stuck in traffic. I did not get to my destination in Victoria Island until 9:10am. I spent close to three and a half hours in traffic!! I looked out of my window and I saw people just like me who do this 5 or 6 times a week, I thought to myself, “Will I be doing this again tomorrow?” That was when I realized that for many of them on the street, it was a Yes. They had no choice. There was a reward at the end of it all. You can call it profit or salary, depending on the destination, but the point I am trying to make from this is “No Pain No Gain” My mind also flashed back to my aerobics class and the trainer who will never let us have any rest. He keeps pushing us to keep doing those very strenuous and painful exercises over and over again, telling us “No Pain No Gain” The moral of this is that nothing good comes easy, you need to keep pushing ...

How To Create A Career Development Plan

The world is becoming less accommodating for people who are content with ‘stumbling upon’ or ‘serendipitously discovering’ opportunities. Competition levels in the business world are being raised, and the margins that separate relevance from oblivion are tending towards being razor-thin. In such a setting as this, you will need to be as close to perfect for the opportunities that come your way (or simply pass on the highway) as you can. This preparedness can only be achieved by planning. A career development plan is perhaps the simplest tool you can devise to make your transition through a career path more organized. It signifies an intention on your part to set life-goals and pursue them- a desire to be more than just mediocre. So, if you are keen on writing one for yourself, you should be commended. But beyond this, you will have to ensure that your plan is realistic and time bound, if you do not want to wind up in the depressing position of having to pick up the pieces from a failed long-term project you created yourself. Here are some steps you should take in order to reach the career goals you have dreamt up for yourself Identify ...

Highlights from Pitman Training – Tokunbo Fasoro

Wednesday was a great day at Pitman Training Lagos with Mrs. Abimbola Soluade and her team. I was invited to come in and share my story with the participants. I spoke on how I struggled through my childhood and the many obstacles I faced trying to get an education. I told them that the only reason I was able to meander those dark moments was through GHARP. Lol!… I am sure you are wondering what ‘GHARP’ means. God Factor- Never ignore the power of prayers, it kept me going. Hardwork- I kept putting my best into everything I did. Association- I surrounded myself with people who supported me and helped me grow. Great mentors. Resilience- I was persistent and determined to succeed so I kept on pushing. Never give up. Positivity- I had to get rid of negative thoughts and negative people around me. Some day, I would share my story on this platform… Watchout!!! The participants were also excited to have Opeyemi Omotosho and Titi Olono, who are my friends and classmates from secondary school share from their wealth of experiences as well. It was a fulfilling experience. Enjoy viewing other pictures from the training… Tokunbo Fasoro Biempowerment.com #EmpoweringPeople ...

12 Challenges New Entrepreneurs Face And Ways To Conquer Them Pt1 – Tokunbo Fasoro

The economy is not smiling in a lot of countries in the world right now, especially countries that were totally dependent on oil as income. A country like Nigeria has been one of the greatest ones hit since the fall in oil prices and this has led to a lot of pay cuts, job losses and a hard time for employers to even pay salaries. This situation has forced a lot of people to seriously begin considering entrepreneurship like never before. I would like to discuss a few challenges you may face as a new entrepreneur and ways to conquer them. 1. Doing anything that generates income, not specifically something you believe in and are passionate about: If you do something you believe in, you can get other people to believe in it. 2. Picking the right business: Make sure your business is providing a solution; it must be the answer to a problem, a response to a need. Ensure you deliver what you have promised. 3. Finding your clients: If you have a good product or service, people will come to you. This way you may not need to spend money on adverts, referrals from past clients will almost ...

All It Takes Is Some Care, Some Dedication And A Little Discipline – Tokunbo Fasoro

One morning, while on holiday, I decided to take a walk around the environment. After walking a few meters, I couldn’t but notice how neat and properly maintained all the lawns around looked. I mean ‘ALL’ the lawns! They looked so perfect, it was like I was looking at a picture. Then I noticed something- I saw that 4 different houses had people mowing their lawns, and I saw a woman tendering the flowers in front of her house. I was so amazed that these people paid so much attention to their environment. I saw dedication. I saw discipline. I just kept looking on in admiration. Then I began to think, if only we paid such attention to our lives; in the same way that made this environment look so perfect in areas such as our careers and goals, it could probably become perfect one day . If we could just take sometime to think, “How can I become perfect on this job? What do I need to do to get to the peak of my career? What do I need to do to take this business to the next level? How can I stop this addiction?” And so on… ...
