This picture was taken 20’years ago & brought back some nostalgia
So I thought I’d write a letter #ToMyYoungerSelf .
You were 21 with a lot of hope and one heck of a mischievous smile.
Little did you know that in 1 year, your life was gonna take a roller coaster ride of failure and disappointment that would ultimately wipe that smirk off your face.
You’re gonna get an invitation to join a cult, sha give yourself brains and don’t go
That decision’s gonna lead you to @thelovefamily_official and you’re gonna make a lot of meaningful friendships that will last a lifetime and build your faith in God.
Trust me, you’re gonna need Him... sooner than you think and every day afterwards.
Don’t worry about your Math department lecturers, they’re a bunch of morons, especially Baba and your course advisor.
In hindsight, stay away from that chic in MathEco, don’t say I didn’t warn you
Now, you know how everyone...
I posted this on my social media a few days ago, but I figured I'd share it with you if you hadn't already seen it.
Here are a few ways you can reposition your marketing to premium customers
Never say cheap or affordable .. say it’s at a price within your reach
You don’t sell fitness or weight loss, you sell a summer/beach body all year round
You don’t sell shapewear, you amplify women’s curves and conceal their contours
You don’t sell wedding dresses, you make one woman the center of attention & the most talked about person at an event
You don’t sell furniture, you sell conversation starters
You don’t sell hair, you sell ... you sell head-turning hair
I hope you get the drift
Now it's your turn, let me know what you sell
Today, I wanna talk about failure and how you can deal with it
In 2015, my bro Paul Foh had an idea for both of us to collaborate & teach Thought Leaders how to sell out their events, since we both were always selling out our events
So we designed the flyer & began promoting the event. It was just N10k
We got lots of responses, with people asking if they could pay at the venue
We paid for materials, food and the works for at least 50 people
Do you know how many people attended this mega event? Remember that Paul and I are a big deal
I’ll tell you
Not a soul. What’s the name of our event again?
It was like all the Thought Leaders created a WhatsApp group and agreed: “we won’t attend Steve & Paul’s event” #badbellepeople
For a seminar called “how to fill out your seminar seats and make money”, we couldn’t even fill one seat
Ironic right? Na so life be
It hurt like hell & we...
Over the weekend, I had the privilege to sit with my mentor, Fela Durotoye as he shared his heart with me, my brothers; Jimi Tewe, Bankole Williams and several hundred-odd people.
Looking around the room, I couldn't help but notice that while you may have knowledge, skill or ability, you really won't go far without having the right association.
So here's my question?
Who's in your corner? Who's your squad? Here are "awon goons mi" and a few others not in this picture
We're almost at the final stretch of the year and if you can't get anything right (which you better), at least make sure you've got the right people in your corner.
Cause you know what they say, "(s)he who walks with the wise, will also be wise and the companion of morons will be destroyed.
Your squad is a picture of your future. It's folk that have got your back and are willing to ride with you and push the best out of you, even when you're comfortable with mediocrity
I mean, I admire Paul Foh's hustle and grind (the...
This month I was featured in Forbes Africa sharing a bit of my backstory.
It was pretty raw and the interviewer, Peace Hyde is absolutely amazing, she got me to say stuff that I didn't remember I'd blocked out.
I got kicked out of school in 2004 and was an office assistant till July 2006, so in 13 years, God has truly brought me a long way from being a 2 Time College Dropout and it really is quite humbling.
I know I'm not in Forbes because of my money (it's still stacking up), but by the Grace of God whose, favour has given me some level of positive influence to build a great name.
This is usually where I should insert some “deep quote” but this time, I'm tongue tied and got nothing.
All I can say is if you don’t quit on your journey to success, someday, even your failures will inspire others to succeed

Have you found that you couldn’t break a particular money ceiling?
For example, no matter what you do, you’ll make N800k +but you can’t hit N1m,
Like this calculator, no matter what I do, I’ve hit a ceiling of what I can achieve
YOUR MONEY & YOUR ABILITY TO EARN IT HAS A CEILING
Until you reorient yourself, products or systems, you’ll keep hitting that ceiling.
Tomorrow, I’ll be hosting a private webinar, BREAKING YOUR MONEY CEILING, showing you how to take the limits off your ability to earn more

One of the voices messing with your head concerning making money are your Money Blocks
For example, do you catch yourself saying things like
Those are Money Blocks
I’m not saying become a spendthrift
You need to recognize you may have some blocks regarding your relationship with money
Do you speak negatively every time a financial commitment is required?
Then you might have a money block
If your beliefs concerning making money are blocked, then you’ve hit a ceiling being able to earn a certain amount of money and no amount of prayer and fasting can cure it
Cause here’s the ugly truth.
If you can’t invest top dollar on yourself, how the hell are you gonna demand it from your customers?
Think about the beliefs blocking your ability to make...
I'm watching, rather distractedly, the collation of the Nigerian Presidential results, and I couldn't help but wonder...
What gets you noticed in a crowd of over 72 other competitors?
As you probably (don't know), there are 93 political parties and 72 Presidential candidates, which kinda reminds me of how saturated your market or industry could be
So what gets you noticed in a crowd of over 72 other competitors?
is it your product quality? Advertising? Customer service?
Now, while I believe all these are important, nothing's more important than the EMOTION you / your product (service) makes people feel.
Now, irrespective of your political leanings or lack thereof, I'd like you to do me a favour.
Without Googling or asking for any kind of help, I'd like you to mention 10 Presidential candidates (apart from Buhari & Atiku). Remember, no cheating...
You give up?
I'm sure you couldn't think of 10; LOL, me neither, but did you notice that a few names,...
Can you flipping imagine!?!
Let me tell you how it happened. .
So you don’t fall into the same trap. .
People will just use messages like the picture on my page to get your attention so that you can read. .
You get caught up wondering “if it could happen to Steve, who’s so bad ass, then I need to take this serious”
So you keep reading, wondering how our good looking hero got hacked. .
As you scroll further, you realize that Steve didn’t get hacked, but HACKED YOU to tell you that if you haven’t signed up for his LIVE WEBINAR, called, HOW TO GET YOUR CUSTOMERS TO CHOOSE YOU with @mrphisha holding this Sunday, then you’ve been sitting on a bicycle .
It’s a 3 hour webinar + replay and it’s only goes for N5,999 (Its so cheap, I definitely must’ve been hacked to pick that price) so call Oluchi on 08096581956 to sign up or click the link in my bio .
Getting ATTENTION is important in getting your customers to choose you....
