Step to getting that new idea for your next business

Image
A lot of people ask me, how can they start a successful business with little or no money..and my answer is always the same "I don't know" I think the intent matters a lot. Why are you starting a business? to get rich quick? to provide value then make money in the long run? to solve a problem?
Once you can answer that question, the right business idea will come to your mind.

That's the first aspect of starting a business, once that is out of the equation, the next step is to test the hypothesis of your Idea.

The best way to test your business idea is to put yourself in your customer's place, and everything will become more apparent.

I'm quite knowledgable about the gaming industry because I have participated in every area of the industry.

Now I'm an operator, as you can see, the only luck I have is being alive. To be sincere, I hate the world ''Luck'' it cheapens a lot of hard work. It has been a gradual process, no shortcut.

Value before Money because Money will always come

Image
Super grateful and happy for the opportunity to be here. In this era of the internet with so much opportunity around us. I honestly I think the reason why a lot of people are not happy is because, all they care about is money. Money is numbers and numbers never end, if it takes money for you to be happy, your search for happiness will never end.
Listen I like money, please don’t get me wrong. I understand what money can do. But above all, I’m an operator of several businesses not only because I will make money but because I love running businesses and I like providing value, I love how people react to products. I live for people’s admiration when they see value my product or business gives. The money will come, it always does but the first thing is to provide value.

When you provide tons of value ahead in business, a lot of people will think you are stupid, what they don't know is that you are building a rep as someone who always gives more than he is asking. Word will go around t…

Promoting your small business on Facebook

Image
A lot of people struggle with promoting their small business.

What I have been able to do for Micserah which is my ''direct to consumer'' wristwatch brand, and has gotten us to the stage where are we are right now is that I always go for underpriced attention, spend on appropriately priced attention and totally ignore overpriced attention.

I use the same logic in building my personal brand.

Facebook and Instagram have massively underpriced attention right now. And I'm pleading to you this morning to take advantage of it before it becomes like television commercials or billboard Ads and become overpriced.

How to win in life: Give more than you asked for

Image
A lot of people don't know the power of giving without expectation. I am amazed at how much people are losing because they do not know how to use this superpower.

Please allow me to explain.

Before I get deep into this article, I would like to create clarity and context, so no tone is lost in regards to my POVs on Giving and asking in return.

When you give without asking for anything return, good things do happen might not be immediate but soon.

This applies to any part of life, be it a relationship, family, Job, philanthropic work etc. It simply means going out of your way genuinely to help the other person.

I have used the approach all my life, in Business and relationship, and it has continued to be a great strategy that keeps me going. Karma is practical

In this era that no one wants to do anything for free, create a different path for yourself by giving more than you are asking in return.

An example is A brand influencer offering to promote a brand for free for the first tim…

My facebook note from 2012

Image
In 2012 I wrote a note on Facebook on how I would like to live the next year, and recently someone liked the post, and it brought back memories of how I have always planned ahead both in the micro and macro. I am still of the opinion of proper planning, especially when it comes to a life journey. I like to plan for the short term and in the long run. A lot of people want to win small now, I  don't mind delaying my winnings for a bigger one in the future. I believe in 90mins more than the first 45 mins.
This post was divided in to for areas of my life and how I intend to live the next year in those areas which are health, personality, community and life.

I wanted to share these tips with you because I think it's still perfect for the present moment and I hope it brings some value to you.
Enjoy!
Ps: I did a bit of editing as the English, I used in 2012 is long outdated :)

What you should know about selling in 2019

So, I happen to know a few things about selling, especially in the gaming business. If you would allow me one bragging moment, I have been head of products for a betting company and grew that products to billions of naira in sales, I also started another company from scratch, even though I'm no longer there, I created a platform and enough clout for them to grow. All of which is out there to see and has brought me accolades from all over the world. Okay, bragging done. I just wanted you to know that the advice I have is solid and real. There are numbers to prove it. 
Whether you think I'm an entrepreneur a.k.a business person, a CEO, an innovator, a top gaming professional, if you refer to me as any of those titles, you are right. On any day, I fit any of those titles, but deep down in me, I consider myself to be nothing but a salesman. 
As a businessman, I'm selling every day. Showing people why they should buy what im selling instead of forcing them to buy what im selli…
