Has it ever happened to you guys that you get so sucked up in the activities of those around you, your vision is temporarily put to one side? well it happened to me and two things that suffered were my blog and my website. Luckily I have been able to find some balance and I'm once again back in the swing of things when it comes to my blog and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this time I'm consistent.
It's been depressing to see articles go unwritten and comments go unanswered. So to my dear readers i can only say I'm sorry and assure you that I'm back. I'm back. I'm back.
Articles, events, press releases, question and answer sessions are coming.
So what have I been doing? as you may or may not know, I run an independent consultancy and two months ago, a client I respect and look up to, Jacqueline Farris of Musa Yar'Adua Centre, Abuja referred to me to a potential client. I made myself available thinking it would be a little side job but instead I received a lucrative, complex, tasking, and wonderful set of projects that introduced me to people I know love (and loath) allowed me to network with a group of people I had only previously dreamt of meeting, and allowed me buy things I had previously only dreamed of.
I learned powerful lessons in the last few months including:
1. Prioritise everything or you end up doing nothing.
2. Always give your 100% in what you do
3. The right network, business partners, and support system can make or break you.
4. Know when to say yes to stressors at work/life and when to say a big fat giant NO
5. It's not every business lead you need to explore.
More on these lessons coming soon.
