Covid-19 is not happening to us, it is happening for us. Conquer the limitations of limited internet and data. The internet is an unlimited highway, not a consumable resource. You could build mighty structures along this highway just like Netflix, Uber, etc. Concerning technology, it is not your aptitude that matters, but your attitude. Embrace and learn the skills of the new economy. John Obidi on Skills of The New Economy.
What inspires you? You need to BeInspired every day! Dream is not what you see while you sleep, dream is something which does not let you sleep. The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision. Do not allow your present position to determine where you are going to. If you will be successful in the next global economy, how you manage your time matters. Ubong King.
Africa’s problems will be solved by Africans. How are you using digital technology to bring about change? What are you doing with the technology available to you? With more technological advancement, the wealth gap is widening to accommodate more persons. The process of lifelong learning is to commit to continually reinventing yourself, do this or be laid off! The future is NOW. Kwame Opoku on The future of work.
Consistency is better than intensity. Champions grow daily and not in a day. Show up and show up every day. If you have a smart phone and access to internet, you can cure poverty. The more available your content is to your target audience, the higher the probability to come top of mind when they need to make a buying decision. You can never over sell. Paul Foh on Marketing and sales.
You are a global business. Get on international stage, but first, change your mindset! Think like a globalist. Connect with global audience by solving global problems. The global economy expects a level of excellence that you must level up to. Talk in global currency, talk in dollars. Come with value and come correct. Edirin Edewor on Publishing Global Assets.
The new lecturers are no longer in universities, but in homes and offices. The wealth of the world is in the air. If your business is not airborne, you would likely be in trouble. The world will pay for the result you have, not the information you have gathered. You can read and not learn. The proof of reading is learning, the proof of learning is problem solving. Jimi Tewe
If you don’t invest in yourself, people will find it difficult to invest in you. Personal development is key. If you are asking whether to invest in Forex trade, then you should not. Investing in Forex requires highly specialized skill, time and knowledge. WEALTH IS BUILT BY STACKING. Play the long-term game. Oluwatosin Olaseinde on Finance
Focus on what is most important to your brand and the people you serve. Build confidence, get knowledge, gather experience and take courage! Answer the Who, Why, What, When, Where and How questions. Whatever you know, you must learn how to communicate it. Joyce Daniels on Public Speaking.
It is not about the size of your followers, but the value of your community. Focus on documenting your process, your story is your selling point. It does not have to be pretty, it just have to be done. Competition is the losing strategy, focus on collaboration. Steve Harris.
The journey to the global economy begins with desire, intense commitment and working your way through. Continue to put in the work, everything can connect to make your destiny. There are opportunities, there are platforms, you can become whatever you want to be. Don’t limit yourself. Olusola Amusan on Accessing Global Opportunities.
Build for the global economy. Build as if you are the only one that can service the entire world. Create a brand in your own name that people can vouch and recommend you for. Take responsibility, own equity, leverage your assets. Two skills that matters: building and selling. Build and sell things that solves global problems. Adetola Onayemi.
Be discipline enough to show up every day. Learn how to sell. Understand your sales channel. Alliance and collaboration will propel you in the new economy. We can’t change the world until we change ourselves. It is unacceptable to not know how to sell in 2020! Tricia Ikponmwonba on marketing and sales.
Until there is a cognitive dissonance in your brain, your vision is not big enough. The problem is not knowledge; it is about being able to correct what you know and convert it into habit. In reinventing yourself, be resilient, having the ability to bounce back! Knowledge does not count for much, move your knowledge to skills through constant practice. Be audacious! Seize the internet!! Patrick Nwakogo
Connect with your inner self and emotions. Understand there is nobody quite like you. You need to slow down and hear your inner voice, develop your inner wisdom. The first thing you are selling is yourself. You can’t be that person that is always anxious. Retrospect and understand you. Tangible self worth is being good enough to surround yourself not with sycophants, but with people who celebrate you and tell you the truth. To connect with people, listen out for what they say and how they say it. Don’t talk like a survival, talk like a thriver! Yetunde Bankole-Bernard on Personal Branding.
The highest form of slavery is in the mind. The new form of slavery is the ability of a power block to control you through the instrumentality of your choices.
You don’t need any special talent or skills to get angry, be a fool or keep malice. Anybody can do that.
The objective of knowledge is transformation. Clarity is usable understanding, it is action and momentum!
What will be tomorrow is trapped under the prevailing order. Your next level is inside you.
You cannot define anything authentic without a dimension of rebellion. Your rebellion is rejecting the prevailing order!
You must understand that all things are in the face of development. Look into the prevailing order and develop the next new thing. Nothing is ever perfect. Find the next level in the incompleteness.
POWER IS IN THE OPTIONS! Not the choices.
Let the weight of your outcome be the expression of your rebellion. Two things you should do with knowledge; question it and build a solution out of your answer. Olakunle Soriyan on Creative Rebellion.
Africa is risen!! Be among the change makers, go take action!!!
