I apologise to my readers for taking this long to update my blog. I constantly tell my clients that their blogs and other social media must be active and updated, so my blog shouldn’t be months old! I don’t accept excuses from my clients for not updating their blog (I may allow personal or family health-related issues); so I won’t give one. 😊
A very short back-story for new readers, I decided to go on a business adventure to Nigeria to set up a new business and an office base – previous posts will update you on my experiences, such fun!!
Nigeria – Only the Brave
The past few months have been quite intense. Setting up business in Nigeria is only for the brave, especially if you’re self-financing like I am. Remaining sane while putting deals together is a real testament to the human spirit, hats off to all of us who do it!
That said, although the country is tough, the rewards can be HUGE, more so than most countries in the West. Well, that’s one of the reasons I’m doing it – I’m not completely crazy.😊
Doing business in Nigeria has taught me a lot, namely, patience, perseverance and focus. It’s so easy to be distracted by the ‘next best thing’ when the results you’ve been working towards seem to be taking too darn long; but I can attest that if you keep your eyes on the price you will achieve your goal(s).
Same Services More Global
Since I started my business I’ve been fanatical about providing a more personal and tailored service to my clients, which has included a lot of face to face meetings. Unfortunately this has meant that my clients in other parts of the world may not have received the same level of service when I wasn’t physically available; not something I would ever want for them.
My time around different parts of Africa while dealing with my African-based clients has taught me to think bigger and more global, ensuring I find ways to provide the same level of service to ALL my clients around the world.
Too Close To See
As a business coach and consultant, I pride myself on knowing how to help my clients navigate the labyrinth path to success in their businesses and somehow it’s taken me a bit longer to find a platform where I can provide value to all my clients at the same time!
Working closely with my clients has shown me that irrespective of where you are in the world, as long as you’re in business – whether you’re an entrepreneur or career professional – you’ll have similar challenges in the areas of marketing, business growth, increasing customer base, etc.
So, to put what I’ve learnt into practice and cater to you, my wonderful clients, even better; I’ll be offering bespoke courses, videos and webinars to address the challenges that you all face in your respective businesses.
You’ll find the videos and other information I’ll be uploading on my site to be useful for your business and of course, fun. While we all know that business isn’t easy, there should be some fun added to the mix…otherwise, what’s the point, right? 😊
So how about you? What experiences have you had in your business, where you had to change strategies?
How long did it take you to change strategies?
