Have your clients love you

H

There are lots of things you can do to get your customers or clients to love buying your services or products. One way to make this “relationship” work is to give a service that’s way beyond their expectations. For example, show them that you respect them because they chose your business over someone else’s, and that you will do everything possible to keep giving them the...

Taking a loan for your business

T

The most popular approach to doing business is that you would talk to your bank and they would give you a fat cheque with an amount that will make you rich. But does that help? Well, you might make it, and you might fail. And in the case of failure, you need to remember that the bank is not your friend. They don’t care if you succeed or not. The only thing they want back is their money, and...

To succeed, you must fail!

T

Maybe that was just too direct. Let me say it differently. In order to succeed you would most probably need to fail on the way. It’s absolutely close to impossible to start something and end up succeeding with flying colors. Unless you are superman. Every idea and business demands time and effort, and your passion is like the cherry on the cake. Your job is to do your best, and if you still...

Three tips to a successful product

T

In the past few years i have been working as the Project and Product Manager of several major portals, or products in other words. I launched a major lookalike site which was later sold to a high profile ISP and then I built onto an online radio, CrazeFm, which within three years won the best and most popular radio award. The ups and downs have taught me as to how to take a product and work on it...

3 tips on having a successful meeting

3

In the hectic world we are living in, we have to really put our foot down and make sure that the time we are using on a baseless meeting could probably be used to do some work. If one has one hour fixed for a daily meeting, that’s 5 hours a week, 22 hours a month, which is 264 hours a year!! A perfect status meeting should be around 1-2 minutes of talk time for each attendee, everything...

Talking on the phone

T

Being from the world of radio, I feel that one can use their voice to present a whole scene or story to thousands at one go. The voice is such a powerful tool that if one uses it properly, one can portray the right feelings to the other party without coming face to face. Have you ever spoken to people who make you feel as if they are smiling while talking? What about those that talk and it feels...

You can’t do this they said

Y

I have often come across various individuals in the past few years of being in the online world. Some went to the extreme of telling me that I couldn’t do this or won’t be able to manage this or that. Luckily I managed all the things I was told I couldn’t manage and much more. That’s when something triggered in my mind and made me realize that one thing that I have kept...

Do you hate your job?

D

This is what most of the people say when they are starting their conversation after a sigh, which sounds like as if someone has taken all the air out of their lungs.   Remember that you are living in a world where billions of people die just because they can’t manage to get clean water, let alone a few grains of food. You might be one of those lucky people who can afford internet...

Expect to fail – some of the time

E

If you tell me that you have never failed at something, I would probably turn around and call you the biggest liar on the face of the earth. But then again, maybe you haven’t failed at something at all. But then again that’s even worse, because that means you haven’t done anything different to get what you have today.   A person who hasn’t failed has definitely never...

Window of opportunity

W

We are often faced with challenges that make us wonder if we will ever come out of them “alive”.But the amazing thing is that we always do. Challenges make us stronger, make us realize that we are human beings that are capable of lots of things, including finding solutions to issues that otherwise can never be solved. Dealing with challenges becomes easy when you start accepting the...
