Some people get very successful at what they do while others do the same thing but can't make out anything out of it. Some people have moved from extreme poverty to unprecedented wealth. While others have gone the opposite way and now left in misery,struggling to win a lost  battle against poverty.    What's the difference between that man in the slums and the man living in a mighty mansion at the heart of the city? Analogically, there's no difference. It is simply a difference in the mindset. The way we think has a great effect on our lifestyle. The lion share goes to those with the lion's  mindset. It's impossible to get the most out of life with a bad mindset. As simple as it is, the quality of our mindset is directly proportional to the quality of our lifestyle. Take a look at the current state of your life and compare it with the k…

Naija Guy Gist: Is it right to date your sibling's ex?      Let's talk about this very important issue. Let's say my brother brings his girlfriend home and with time everyone gets to know her. Personally I find her very attractive and also very nice. We get talking and then I start developing some feelings for her but I say to myself, "hey, she nice and cool but it's a no go area because she already belongs to my brother."

"Kiss and Tell", A Prevailing Attitude Among Nigerian Men

Whether at a hangout, party, bar, work, an event or in our apartments with our friends, we get talking about issues, trying to catch up with one another. The talks may vary from trends to sports and right down to our personal issue depending how close we are.      "Men will always be men" no matter what part of the world they are found. Men have found a kind of special interest talking about their flirting conquest. This is usually common among single young men though some married men get involved. Men become kin and very focused when it comes to the "kiss and tell" discussion.

Usually explicit or kinky in nature.      Nigerian men have not been left out and in fact the "kiss and tell" attitu…

Their salaries can't afford them the kind of life they want. Some of these reasons make them quite work for a venture they know little or nothing about. So they have this wonderful idea, they get a loan and they start up. Business seems good to them at first but along the way everything begins to play against them and eventually business gets fold up and they go back to penury. Why? Simply because they failed to get an in depth knowledge of what they are about to launch themselves into.
     Being an entrepreneur is far beyond what most people think. In Nigeria, when you hear about entrepreneurship, the next thing you see is; soap making, ankra bags, baking, paint making, liquid soaps and make up. We feel it is just to acquire a certain skill and then we launch ourselves in business.
