Attitude Saves The Name Not Arrogance..

Hey listen there! I am a business man and I understand businesses don't really go the way we want it all the times; sometimes we gain and sometimes we lose.

Related: Why Your Business Needs Online marketing

As a business man, I do have partners and investors who put their money for higher return at the end, and also I do have customers who expected an outstanding service or product for their money.

But..
When things goes wrong in a business, you ended in debt and your approach/attitude to it will save your name and integrity.

Last year till June this year, I was owing over N3.2 Million debt to friends, family and investors, and I am owing a single investor who never met me before N1.2Million (He
invested that huge money to someone he never met before and we still never meet till today).

For the period of over 6 months of owing these people, none of them come online to say I scam them or call me to pubic to ask for
their cash, but why?

I never lose contact with them, I talk to them almost all the time, I take out my time to call, chat and speak to them about difficulties I am facing and the progress I am making in
making sure I pay them. They are happy I never stop taking to them and they respect me for that.

Stop running away from people you are owing, stop telling them how bad things are around you but tell them how you are planning and working to pay them, tell them about new idea
you have that will work and make you be able to pay them the debt.

Every successful business men have one or two debts to clear, stop blocking people or shunning them because you are owing them.
You are owing them and they have the right to ask you about it and you are obliged to take to them every time they needed it.

Even when they threatened me to write about it on Facebook, all I tell them is "Sir, you think that will make me pay you the money? If I do have it, I will surely pay you but putting it to
public will only spoil my image and still at the end, I will pay you when I have it but how about the name you have tarnished, we have a long way to go together, so kindly be patience
with me".

Also because they are patient with you doesn't mean you should take them for granted, pay them immediately you have it.

Don't allow your name to come out to public in a bad way, cos you can't fix it no matter how little is the dent.

Learn to say sorry and explain how sorry you are to your customers or clients you made unhappy.

It will lead you far.

Mr Amodu: Now this is what I called maturity in business. Check your attitude and make amend.

Picture Your Future Today And NOW.

"What the mind can conceive and consider it can achieve " NAPOLEAN HILLA

Continually picture achievement, irrespective of how badly matters seem to be going in the mean time.

If you can imagine it you can own it. If you can dream it you can grow to be it. If you can envision it, you can gain it, if you can photograph it you can obtain it.

A whole lot of people fail to understand their purpose in life due to the fact they fail to picture their future well. To prevail you should  continuously see yourself succeeding within the midst of hassle. Your capability to peer yourself attaining your goals. along with your inner eyes will create a strong preference to go all out to achieve face of impossibility. friends those who permit their hassle to forestall them from succeeding are people who in no way see themselves capable of making it. The best component that inspire and encourage you to constantly observe your goal is to maintain searching on the future. You must usually believe yourself engaging in your set goal. You should see it earlier than you may get it. it's said that, if you can see it you can get it.

NAPOLEON HILLS stated what a mind can conceived and believe it could gain it.

Arise and image yourself an achievement. it's feasible, your capacity to peer your self attaining your intention through your inner mind

eyes will pressure your preference to satisfy your purpose.. Start now, I mean now

things in life, be ready to work for it, as you know that after graduation, students look for
various fields that are present, in which they can build a successful career.

Parents, friends and relatives also suggest career options
which they find interesting and fulfilling.

Nevertheless, it is important for students to choose the best option among them so that
they do not regret their decision later in life.

To have a successful career, it is necessary that you plan for it, so that you know where
you are currently standing and what you want to achieve after a particular time span.

Time is a very important factor in our life and it should be valued, it is advised for you to
take time and plan your future,you should be serious if you really want to excel, Fix a time
when you will be able to concentrate only on it and nothing else should distract you. Make sure there is no disruption around when you
sit for planning. Treat your career planning schedule as you would treat a physician’s
appointment. It is not a one-time task and must be taken up from time to time, in order to review and revise the plan, if need be. Take time and make the best plan for your
career.

2. Self Examination:
Most times we need to examine who we really
are! Do you know what I mean by self examination? Its simply means know your weakness and working on it, we all have areas that we are weak in our life, which we need to pay attention and much concentration by putting more effort to develop our weakness.

end justifies the means, choose what you love doing.

Information is the key,you simply need to make a thorough research on your choosing career, read more about it, gather a lot of
information, ask questions,learn from experts in the field,and stay focused and updated.

6 Refresher Courses Every Employee Should Take Each Year

I ran into this article writing by John Boitnott and I think it will be wise sharing it among you.

6 Refresher Courses Every Employee Should  Takeq Each Year

Businesses face a variety of challenges managing employees. With so many different personalities in one place, conflicts and issues
will inevitably arise. Often one of the best ways to minimize friction is to train each worker on appropriate and safe behavior.

Whether it’s avoiding a security issue or preventing a costly lawsuit, an investment in training can make a big difference.
Some lessons merit more than a one-time session, however. A brief refresher course each year could keep employers safe without requiring employees to sit through a full
training class again. Best of all, many of these classes can now be taken online, from the comfort of an employee’s cubicle.

Here are six courses that are well worth annual re-training.

Related: Most 10 lucrative agricultural business

1. Workplace safety.
If your business operates in dangerous conditions, safety training is a crucial investment. Look for online courses specific to your industry, but these courses from the
National Safety Council could be a good place to start. Employers can reduce liability by putting processes in place that include regular safety training. In addition to requiring
employees to take these courses once a year, businesses should also consider training supervisors so that they can help keep workers safe.

2. Workplace harassment.
When an employee creates a hostile work environment , a business finds itself at risk. With workplace harassment training, a business reduces its liability by ensuring every
employee has been properly trained. In addition to sexual harassment training, workplace harassment courses focus on behaviors such as bullying and stereotyping.
NAVEX Global’s Workplace Harassment Training Online features one-hour and 30- minute courses for employees and one- and
two-hour trainings for managers.

3. Title VI.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 directly addresses discrimination on the basis of race, color and national origin. There are multiple training resources available for managers and employees, including this training from the U.S. Department of Justice. Once employees
have completed basic training, you can focus on more specific areas such as hiring diverse candidates . Annual trainings will prevent
employers from singling out problem
employees, since everyone will receive the same training.

4. Cybersecurity.
Employees need proper training to keep a business’s technology systems safe.
Businesses can start with basic training from the Department of Homeland Security, then choose more specific training on a yearly
basis. A course on password security training could be beneficial one year, with a course on mobile device safety required of employees the
next year.

5. Regulatory compliance.
Different businesses have regulations specific to the work they do. Whether governed by laws or industry standards, compliance often
requires that every employee be trained. If you collect healthcare information on patients , credit card data from customers or some other
specific type of regulated data, you’ll likely find a course that fits. Once everyone has completed the initial training, check with your governing body to determine if new trainings
are available to catch employees up on any changes.

6. Customer service skills.
Whether your employees deal with customers or clients, the ability to gracefully handle every interaction is essential to your business’s growth. Fortunately, there are numerous customer service training options
available to businesses. This gives you the option of offering different courses depending on the unique challenges your business is
facing during a specific period of time.

Alison.com offers free customer service courses and Dale Carnegie Training provides a series of live courses on specific topics.
Whenever issues seem to plague your customer service efforts, you’ll likely be able to find a course that matches.
Employee training is a handy way to keep a work environment conflict free while also reducing liability. With so many online training opportunities available, businesses can sign employees up for a course that they
can take at their desks whenever they have time.

Once a business has identified its
training needs, finding a course that fills those needs is usually as easy as an internet search.
