Well yes, suits isn’t about entrepreneurs at least not directly but we must all agree that the fashion game on the show is on point! Their clothes as well as their characters command respect; they have an air of professionalism, affluence and authority. As an entrepreneur, a new one for that matter what matters when people see you isn’t only what you offer but how you are offering it. Your audience (potential investors/clients) will most likely not remember all the 10 special things your new app can do for them or how long the code was for the newest software you are putting together but they sure will remember how you look and how you made them feel; they will remember if they didn’t like you initially or if they felt at ease with you.
A wise man once said only a fool would expect a different result by doing the same thing.

Congratulations! You have gotten to the stage where you need extra hands to keep things going smoothly in your business. As your startup gets bigger, the need arises to bring on people to join your team and it’s important to think about not only the kind of person you’re hiring, but also the role they’ll play in your growing business. In the few months when I worked as a Human Resources Administrator at a Startup one thing I realized quickly was the difficulty startups face in attracting and retaining the best people for the job.
Many things go into recruting a person to fill a role in your organisation. It goes deeper than just roles and responsibilities. A Job Analysis template will help you think deeply about the role you want to recruit into.
A job description is a written record of the responsibilities of a particular job. It indicates the qualifications for the job and outlines how that job relates to others in the company.
Happy (belated) New Year!
It’s the second month in the year and I can feel time moving by very fast; before we know what hit us we would be celebrating Christmas again!
I trust that just like everyone else, you set goals and targets for the year; have you achieved any of your goals for the year? What business/financial goal did you set and which have you achieved? You would agree with me that you can’t go to a new level with an old strategy; to do new things, you need a new strategy. One of such strategies is choosing the type of customers you would be working with and those you would be avoiding this year. This single strategy can make or break your business/financial goals for 2016!
This is a sad post.
Sometime earlier this year, I came up with 2 great ideas to start 2 initiatives I was sure would travel a distance in improving entrepreneurship in Nigeria. A while ago I had to stop work on both. My heart broke and I cried.
People don’t understand how it is with an entrepreneur; your idea is your baby! It’s what you live for, wake up thinking about and sleeping worrying about. You defend it with all you have got, your time, money, words and prayers. You talk about it to anyone who has ears and you get really offended when someone speaks ill of it.
Ideas are worth a penny but good ideas don’t come cheaply or easily; at least to the most of us. We tend to think of inventors as another species—geniuses—who have sudden flashes of insight. Some of us can’t think of a single instance when a light bulb went off in our head, leading to some killer new idea. According to historians who specialize in the development of inventions and the thought processes of inventors, innovation is often a slow and iterative process. [National Geographic].
Conducting a SWOT analysis before starting out in business is a crucial first step for anyone serious about succeeding in business. Just like when going into battle, you need to know what’s in your arsenal, where your weak points are and where your strong points are, what can you capitalize on in the environment etc. This is exactly what a SWOT analysis gives you as an entrepreneur.
