General Updates / How To Develop A Problem Solving Personality by Ikoiikenna: on Mon 23 at 05:31am
Perhaps the most important thing you do in business is to solve problems and make decisions, both by yourself and with other people.A major type of communication in the business organization is meetings for problem solving and decision making.
The key to effective problem solvingand decision making discussions, is to go through the process systematically.

Define the Problem Clearly
Right at the beginning, you ask the question, "What exactly is the problem?" Clarity of definition will resolve 50% of the issues before going any further.

Focus on the Future
When discussing a problem, be sure to focus on the future over the past.Ask the question, "Where do we go from here?” “What do we do from here?” “What are our options for the future?" Too many problems solving discussions end up focusing all of the attention of all the people present on what happened in the past and who is to blame.
The effective executive uses this type of communication to focus on where the company and the individuals are going, and what can happen in the future - the only part of the equation over which anyone has any control.

Talk Solutions
A second element in effective problem solving communications is for you to talk about the solutions instead of talking about the problems. It is for you to keep the attention of the individuals in the meeting focused on the possible solutions and what can be done rather than what has already happened.

Release Creativity
The discussion of solutions is inherently positive, uplifting and has a tendency to release creativity amongst the group. A discussion of problems is inherently negative, demotivating and tends to inhibit creativity.

The Key to Positive Thinking
You can become a positive thinker simply by becoming a solutions oriented person rather than a problem-oriented person. If you get everyone in your organization thinking and talking in terms of solutions, you will be astonished at the quality and quantity of ideas that will emerge.

North America / Top Small Business Opportunites In Cayman Islands by Ikoiikenna: on Sat 21 at 03:18pm
We won’t even beat around the bush much today and just go on to ask you the question. If you happen to be in the Cayman Islands, or you are planning to go there on business soon, would you like to establish a great business venture over there? Let’s assume you don’t know why we are asking you this, let us be the ones to tell you that the Cayman Islands is actually one of the best locations on earth for your business to thrive. The government doesn't practice direct taxation, which means that you get to save a lot of taxes and pump these back into your business. Asides from the fact that the island boasts one of the best standards of living in the region, we should do well to tell you that a lot of leading financial institutions have seen the reason to set up shop here. With all of these in place, the next thing is for you to launch out and get into a business there. What kind of investments can you then make here?

1. Tourism Agency
If you have ever been to the Cayman Islands heard of it, seen it in clips or read about it in books, you would know that this is a prime location for tourists. This location is so great for tourists that the region itself gets more than 75% of its GDP from tourism alone. Since this has already been put in place by nature, you can exploit the chance to set up a tourism agency for the region. Start with familiarizing yourself with the region and organizing small activities for your tourists or troops. This would encourage people to opt for your services and in no time, your own GDP would have expanded largely

2. Financial Consultancy
Hundreds of hundreds of financial transactions – spanning both local and international- are generated from the Cayman Islands yearly since they have one of the friendliest business regimes that could be found anywhere. This makes the location a prime market for people that would even like to get more out of their money, invest the best and other things. For this, you get openings to offer your expert opinions on business, money, and investments. See, you’re a consultant in no time.

3. Recruitment Firms
According to a most recent report from the World Bank, the population of the Cayman Islands stands at a little over 500,000. While there are a lot of jobs to be worked, there are a few number of people to work them and this creates a void in the labor market – both skilled and unskilled. Establishing a recruitment agency would be seen as filling a need, and you get the chance to network people with their dream jobs. Since your services would be in high demand, you would never run out of business, and surely never run out of steady income too.

4. Restaurant
A lot of expatriates have decided to make the Cayman Islands their home, and we need not remind you of the large influx of tourists that visit every year. This makes the location a prime place to set up a restaurant that would serve different types of dishes. While local dishes would be most appreciated, those that would love to feel closer to home would find solace in your international delicacies too. With these kinds of options, your plates would always be serving.

5. Agriculture
As much as the Cayman Island is situated in a position of fertile soil and easy access to water, the region still imports up to 90 percent of her food produce. The land is there, and all the other resource is there, but they are not being utilized properly. While many might see this as a lost cause, it is actually a gold mine that is waiting to be exploited. Take your hoes and cutlasses to the land and make something grow from it. even if you can reduce the total imports by up to 5%, that would be a huge boost that your generations wouldn’t forget in a hurry.

So, it's all out there. The Cayman Islands is a land flowing with milk and honey. Why not just brace up and start something?

Successful Entrepreneur / Femi Otedola Biography And Net Worth by Ikoiikenna: on Wed 18 at 04:49pm
Femi Otedola is one of the names that rings a huge bell in the ears of many people when mentioned in the society today and getting to this level of fame and wealth took nothing less than a lot of hard work, dedication, commitment, sleepless night and a true spirit of entrepreneurship.
Entering the oil business when everything was still booming was to be seen at the time as a normal trend but he went on to change the face of oil importation, exportation and marketing and for this single reason, surpassed all the other people that he had even met in the business as at the time of his arrival.

Today, none of the people that started out with this oil magnate in the same business can claim to be half the man he is now.
Born in the year 1962, Femi Otedola was welcomed into the family of (Late) Sir Michael Otedola (who happens to be a former governor of the Lagos state) and he, unlike many, failed to rely on the affluence and influence of his father, seeking to carve out a name for himself.

Femi Otedola first saw opportunity to work in a printing press belonging to his family and this was the source of his daily bread till he saw the opportunities that abound in the oil industry, prompting him to make a swift move from the press into oil. Although many people thought how he then with practically no experience in the field, was going to make it but he never let what others thought of him bring him down in any way.

Working hard to get known and raise some money, Otedola finally made his first significant breakthrough when he got enough funds to finally launch and start up his own company, Zenon Petroleum and Gas Ltd, in the year 2003. Through his dedication and commitment to the job, in under two years, he was already a name to be reckoned with in the business. By the year 2005, other big companies such as MTN, Unilever, Nestle, Guinness and even the Dangote group had started to source the services of Zenon for their diesel needs.

In the year 2015, Otedola sought to rebrand the business and expand its scope, prompting him to change its name to Forte Oil after which he sold a sizeable amount of its shares and assets to Mercuria Energy Group, a move which not only fetched the business some $200 million but also opened the doors to a bigger and better international market to sell for.

Otedola has always shown his ability to carefully study the market and wait for when best to strike, and this single leadership and management skill has fuelled him up to where he is today.

Happily married with four children (three daughters and one son), the business mogul and seasoned entrepreneur is worth an estimated $2.5 billion and is the richest man in Nigeria only behind Aliko Dangote and Mike Adenuga of Glo.
