Acquiring Jet.com For Over $3Bn is the Dumbest Thing Walmart Has Ever Done

While Amazon is believe to the giant of E-commerce, Walmart is really reeling.

In a deal announced Monday, Walmart acquired e-commerce startup Jet.com for $3 billion in cash plus an additional $300 million in Walmart stock.

This deal is clearly part of Walmart's bid to take on Amazon, which currently brings in about $100 billion in annual e-commerce sales against Walmart's roughly $15 billion. Walmart's total revenue, we'd note, is nearly $500 billion.

But as the retail business shifts online, the acquisition of Jet.com gives Walmart not only an existing customer base to build its e-commerce business, but the technical and logistical know-how of an online-first retailer.

The urgency for Walmart to do something — anything — to make serious inroads on building out its online operations, however, is clearly outlined in this chart showing the rise of Amazon's market cap against Walmart. And while market cap isn't everything, the shift here very obviously shows that investors are betting big on the future of Amazon while mostly sitting tight on what Walmart is worth, both now and in the future.

This was publish on Business Insider which you can readHere

Amazingly, under this post on Business Insider was a comment of someone name Citizen1 who said “This is probably the dumbest thing Walmart has ever done. It reminds me of a Marissa move”.

He’s possibly talking about Marissa Mayer former CEO of Yahoo decision to acquire Blogging site Tumblr that seems to be a bad acquisition. But one thing we should note here is that Walmart is not yahoo.

And as said by Moody's lead retail analyst Charlie O'Shea “The deal gives Walmart "a definite leg-up on its competitors in the very important race to be #2 online"
"Being the site next clicked following Amazon amongst online shoppers is very important for brick-and-mortar retailers as they morph online, and Walmart is aggressively positioning itself to be that site," O'Shea wrote in a note to clients on Monday.

What we should do now is to watch over time and see how the war for the king of the future of E-commerce continues between these two giant. Whether this is a bad decision made by Walmalt will be later justified by time as things continue to move on.

Yahoo Sad Ending! 7 Lessons Nigeria Entrepreneurs Can Learn From The History, Rise and Fall of Former Tech Giant.

Founded in 1994, yahoo then was the google of today, hope of most of us when it comes to navigating and maximizing the internet. They offer easy search platform like what google offer today. Getting updated daily news was as well fun and easy through yahoo news and sending of emails daily through the popular yahoo mail then was quite interesting.
A company that went public in 1996 just after two years when it was founded, from 1997 to this day, yahoo already acquired more than 120 smaller companies to fuel it growth. And By December 1999, Yahoo stock was peaking at about $500 a share, or just over $108 a share after splitting. It was a monster company.

Now, I heard yesterday that Verizon has bought yahoo for under $5bn ($4.83bn) in cash in what Forbes called “the saddest deal in tech history”. a $125bn behemoth as big as Facebook or Google are today. Now its been sold to Verizon for a comparative chump change which some people even thinks Verizon is over paying at such price. What went wrong? What happened to yahoo?

How come such a once successful and leading tech giant became so less valued and lost it total market share resulting almost into bankruptcy. Just two weeks ago I personally begin studying and researching about Yahoo and Myspace (two big internet giant that suffer almost same failure fate) in preparation for a seminar organized for small business owners in my area, where I am to deliver a lecture on How and Why 50% of Businesses Fail In Their First Year and 95% Fails Within Five Years.

So before now I had already prepare all these facts, stories and lessons that I will be discussing in this post. Below is an outline/timeline of Yahoo as prepared by BBC News

• 1994 Yahoo- which stands for “Yet Another Hierarchically Organized Oracle”- is founded
• 2000 Yahoo valued at $125bn at height of dot-com boom
• 2002 Google rejects a $3bn bid from Yahoo
• 2005 Yahoo invested $1bn in china hottest tech start-up. Alibaba.
• 2008 Microsoft’s $44bn offer for yahoo is turned down
• 2013 Yahoo acquired blogging site Tumblr for $1.1bn
• 2015 Yahoo makes net loss of $4.4bn
• 2016 Verizon buys Yahoo for less than $5bn in the saddest deal of tech history

Two Stanford University students Jerry Yang and David Filo created the proto-Yahoo in 1994 as "Jerry's Guide to the World Wide Web," it had no real competition. Yahoo rapidly became the search guide to the still-new web. By 1996, it had competition in the first, successful early search engines, Alta Vista and Excite, but they never came close to challenging Yahoo. But suddenly everything became deemed and what use to be the giant is now an ant traded for change.

Below is what went wrong, and 7 business mistakes and lessons you can learn and avoid as an entrepreneur in Nigeria.

1. Do The Right Thing At The Right Time: I hope I won’t be wrong if I say timing is where yahoo missed it all. Or one of the areas where yahoo missed it. And note it; timing is everything you need to get right in your business. Just very unfortunately for Yahoo, its nemesis, Google, had already been born. And Yahoo would continue to buy bad companies instead of investing in search engine engineering.

Is it bad to buy companies and businesses to fuel your parent company? Of course not but for yahoo, It wasn’t time to acquire companies when a potential threat competitors was very near and fast arising but yahoo decided to make BAD acquisitions such as Broadcast.com and Geocities. Did yahoo need not to buy companies to grow? Of course yes they need to buy if only they are buying a threat (competitor named google) or at least not when google was showing up as a potential threat and this will lead us to lesson number two.

2. Never Underestimate a Threat: Facebook acquired Whatsapp for a whopping $19bn in 2014- effectively eliminating a potential competitor before it really got started. Whatsapp had precisely zero revenue at that time and just a handful of employees, but it was starting to amass a pretty substantial base of users that could have ended up threatening facebook.

The amazing thing is that yahoo in 2003, reportedly had the chance to buy google for $5bn, two years before google IPO. But yahoo CEO at the time a Hollywood executive called Terry Semel, wasn’t prepared to pay more than $3Bn for what then was still a start-up, according to the reports. Then yahoo never thought or see google as future threat which later sent them packing and this will lead us to another great lesson.

3. Failure has no Respect for Anyone: Just as success can be achieved by anyone who is determined and prepared for it so is failure ready to devour anyone who doesn’t watches is back tightly.
In others words no matter what level of success you might have attain in business don’t ever think you have reach the highest peak of life and feel superior to anyone because failure is always like a devil who is never sleeping and always peeping to see just a loophole or chance to come in and bring you down.

4. Get your Leadership and Management right: Yahoo had a succession of chief executives over the years. They include co-founder Jerry Yang (who admittedly secured a highly lucrative investment in Chinese internet giant Alibaba) then Terry Semen, (who failed to acquire Google then) Scott Thompson (who was pushed out amid a resume scandal) and her last boss Marrisa Mayer who tried all her best to turn the company around but fail.

The frequent leadership and management changes have meant constant changes to strategy and direction of the business. CEO Marissa Mayer, who took control in July 2012, can’t be blame for the overall poor performance of Yahoo. Most of the deals made by Yahoo were closed way before she took the position as CEO.

5. Clear Vision with a Dedicated Identity: Yahoo for the past 10 years has been trying to figure WHO they were and WHY they existed. They flip flopped from one vision statement to another hoping that their users wouldn’t notice: Yahoo’s history of mission statements “flip floppage” (21 years, 23 missions). While I am sure few have ever read their about page, users “felt” the changes of Yahoo’s soul time after time.

As small business owner in Nigeria, branding is your soul. While you might not have deep pockets like Yahoo to acquire a company and hoping it to save you, you have all the power to create a meaningful brand experience. It all starts with a vision statement that you can honour. During my research I came across a post in vox.com that report; Paul Graham, a well-known silicon valley investor who sold his company to Yahoo in 1998, has written that even in the late 1990s, Yahoo was ambivalent about its status as a technology company.
“one of the weirdest things about Yahoo when I went to work there was the way they insisted on calling themselves a ‘media company’, Grham wrote.

6. Stay Updated And Monitor New Trends In Your Industry: In 2012 I can still remember vividly when I worked into a cyber café and said I wanted to open an email address. I then watch the guy at the café open his browser and went to Yahoo mail website to open one for me in less than 2 minutes by just asking my name and few other things.

Then I paid him a whopping N200 (Lol) and went away with my email address and password thinking I will be able to login when I get a smart phone but to my surprise I couldn’t access my Yahoo mail even when I had gotten an internet enable smart phone.
So I will always have to visit a cyber café to check my mails, then I got frustrated one day and fortunately discovered that I can open and use a Gmail account on my phone so I opt to Gmail and from then on and I didn’t bother to check back on Ymail till tomorrow.

Yahoo failed to fast follow and enter into the booming and revolutionary mobile industry. They didn’t optimized for the new mobile trend fast enough. Rather they rushed behind giants like Google trying to emulate and re-create what other where doing a year late in the trend. They have proven to be good at jumping on trends, just always too late.

7. Always Hire the Best: According to BBC News Review on Yahoo rise and fall; the most successful companies in Silicon Valley including Google, Facebook, and Apple have an intensely technology focused culture.

These companies are obsessive about hiring the most talented engineers (and in Apple’s case, designers) so they can build the best technology products. And this culture tends to be self-perpetuating- very skilled highly motivated people. Once you have a critical mass of such people, it becomes easy to recruit more of them.
Yahoo never had the same kind of obsessive focus on recruiting technical talent which was evident in the way the company was governed and also the way they run down every business they had acquire.

I have learnt million dollar lessons from the rise and fall of yahoo which i will continue to teach as a topic for entrpreneurs and I am still learning more on how to run and sustain a company that lives forever in the mind of people.
I hoped you have learn one two things as well. Do let me know other lessons that Yahoo story can teach a today Nigeria entrepreneur by sharing your thought on this using the comment button.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Just Passed Warren Buffett to Become The 3rd-richest Man in The World

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is now the third-richest man in the world.

According to Bloomberg, Bezos' total net worth hit $65.05 billion on Thursday, pushing him past Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway's founder, by $32 million.

That puts Bezos' net worth behind only two people in the world: Amancio Ortega, Spain's business magnate, best known for founding the clothing retailer Zara, and Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates.

Bezos' rise is largely because of his stock ownership in Amazon, the online retailer that's now the fifth most valuable company in the US behind Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, and ExxonMobil.

Amazon's stock has been on an absolute tear since February, jumping over 50% in less than five months.

It was only in April when Bezos displaced Mexican mogul Carlos Slim as the fourth-richest person in the world.

But Bloomberg also pointed out that Buffett's net worth took a hit this month after he donated $2.2 billion in July.

Bezos' net worth could grow even more next week, when Amazon reports its quarterly earnings, which most analysts expect to be another blowout quarter.

But don't expect Bezos to celebrate his wealth in any fancy way. He's notorious for his frugality, which is deeply ingrained in Amazon's corporate culture as well. Perhaps he's more interested in seeing how his cameo role in the upcoming "Star Trek Beyond" will look like this weekend.

10+1 Reasons Why Freelancers Needs A Blog

As a freelancer the best ideal marketing technique you can employ to gain more clients and sales is to learn and know how to sell both yourself, skill and services, and how  to sell yourself best is first to see yourself beyond a ordinary gig seller to a global service rendering company, to the pessimistic that's too far of a dream to dare imagine but to the optimistic like you that's the ideal thing.

I know many freelancers are very much okay and doing quite well on their various services rendering platforms without a blog but that's not a enough reason to limiting yourself only to that, if you know that you are worth more than where you are or earning right now then you can even achieve more than you believe and planned for.

I'm also aware of the fact that a blog is a responsibility but It's type, is a responsibility of asset that speaks for you and show your work in a brighter light.

As a freelancer ready to take your business to the next level in 2016 one of the best tool you need to hit your target amount is a blog because that's the best ideal step you will take and see changes in your business beyond your own expectations and in this article I just want to show you 10 reasons why you need to have a blog as a freelancer.

1. A Blog Helps You To Promote Yourself

When you promote Yourself you are promoting your business and creating an environment that absorb sales beyond control and I believe that's what every freelancer wants. Owning a blog gives you a significant advantage to sell yourself directly to your prospects customers even before they ever have the opportunity to meet you in reality.

In your blog you are in charge of everything. The web design, the content, the structure of your website; it all represents you and shows your abilities in these fields. With a blog you can easily cross promote your order products and and services when you insert your blog url as a signature in your messages and emails and this sends a message to your customers of how professional and technical advance you are.

2. Opportunity To Sell Other Products and Services

With a blog your limitations are only in your imagination, contrary to a freelance website you are limited to a certain number and type of service you can render but with a blog it is just as many as you can cope with.

As a freelancers you are making money by rendering a service where as when you start a blog you can package your skill and expertise into a info product and sell for more profit for everlasting once it is created you can sell as many times as you want .

Your website might also have premium content for a small membership fee. There are countless additional ready-made virtual products you can create and offer via your blog. This will increase your income speedily since you can set it up and go back to face your services while you keep earning more money behind even while you are asleep.

3. Through A Blog You Can Build A Portfolio

A Portfolio gives you a clear identity that makes you standout amist competition and also create confidence in your prospects customer to purchase your services because they have seen a sample of what you can do.

It builds trust and ease patronage. through A blog you can create a professional portfolio that describe your business and show your existing work. You can as well create a gallery of your best images, writings and video or audio files and skip less successful ones. You can choose what and what you want to display on your blog there by creating confidence and showing you as an authority in your niche.

4. Blog Creates and Increases Credibility

The best way to prove to your client that you are experienced enough and the right person for that freelance job is to show how credible and trustworthy you are by giving out a URL of your blog that leads to samples of your past work and maybe feedback from your past clients. A Blogs helps you achieve this perfectly.

Having a skill or being an expertise in your field is not enough to win big and more client that will help you hit it big. Credibility is one thing majority of people find easy to trust and invest in.

5. Blog Bring Customers To You

The key thing that fuel the engine of your freelance lifestyle is ability to gain targeted customers and client that really have core interest in what you have to offer.When you optimize your blog post for search result, targeted customers that mean business are what you get, it becomes much very easy for them to locate you online. Another easy way Blogs bring customers to you is through guest blogging on other freelance blogs, 

A freelance writer might be interested in co-operating with a freelance web designer, for example. Word-of-mouth is another huge benefit which can be enhanced by having a blog Often clients that liked your services will recommend your blog to their friends. And the best part is that this is on global scale. You will eventually meet people from all over the world.

6. Blogs Are Long Time Investment

As a freelancer who thinks ahead you should have known that, at one point or the other of your freelance career there will be a need to step down so that you can forge ahead beyond freelancing, before then it will be a wise decision to have an investment, something to fall back on, an investment that gives a clue about the future and save you a lot of stress then.

Once a Blog is setup and It's being updated once in a while with content that are optimized you can be rest assured of profit even in years after it as being set up. 

7. Blogs Exist Middle Man

The aim of people who creates freelancing websites is to gain maximum profit by leveraging on your skills, hard work, sleepless night and urge to make money, they won't tell you this but those commissions are enriching them more than you, the more you work and make money on their platform the more they do nothing and make more money off commission on you.

With a blogs all profits are direct to you and you alone, and then the only money you will have to spend is few dollars yearly on domain name and web hosting and this worth it if I may say

8. A Blog Provides Social Proof

Proof is an important marketing concept that will save you a lot of headaches and brings in constant and real customers, on your blog, people can comments and get engage in interaction with you and this send a message to your prospects client that you are good to go for all of their project and that's why when you finally setup a blog It's is important to have a social media accounts connected to it, aside providing proofs this also will boost traffic and visibility.
9. It Increases Your Success Rate Speedily

Research have shown it that freelancers with blogs has 5X time big job and long lasting client than those who don't have. Meaning start your Success rate will be increasing more as far you keep your blog in existence.

Having a well maintained, interesting blog will raise your status in the marketplace. As you become more popular and well known, potential clients will expect to pay more for your services.

10. A Blogs Tells Clients You Can Maintain A Schedule

As a freelancers you should know that deadlines and reliability are part of the business, this alone can bring in more client, keep them, make them always coming back for more and as well recommending you to their friends and colleagues while you make more money.

If a client go through your blog he should be able to notice this act in you through your past works and other clients testimony your blog will shows clearly that you can maintain a regular schedule. It also shows that you have experience and staying power.

11. Blogging Is Fun and Easy

It is a mis conception that blogging is a hard of it, this is mostly said by frustrated people who just find themselves around this type of business not because they know how it works but because they heard that it is possible to earn money blogging.

Though just like any other business bloggging as it own challenges and bad side but I can say they are just like any other business that can be maintained and easily overcome.

Final Note

There are many more reasons why you should operate a blog as a freelancer but I think these 10+1 are the most important for now, and if you need my help in setting up a blog either a professional blogger or WordPress blog  with content for a start, you can always contact me and be rest assured of a strategic professional, business orientated work.

7 Commandment Of Money That Will Make You Rich

Money- we all want it, but few of us are willing to sacrifice to get it. Those that have it generally don’t understand it, and those that don’t have it come up with excuses why they cant get it. If it sounds confusing-It is.

After much studies and researches of Forbes top 10 richest men in the world, I came out with 7 principles in the words “commandment” of which these men followed to arrive at the top. Their wealth, according to them were based on these commandment.

Remember principles or commandments are simple guide lines that are set as rules most times, and if followed, obeyed and practice no matter who you are is capable of producing positive result for you as far as you work by it.

Here are the 7 commandment of money to your road to wealth.

1. Thou Shall Pursue Your Dream:

When you are staying in your dreams and working by it chances are that you will be more successful than people working randomly and profusely because after your dream is your reality, working outside your dream is a effort that produces another man wealth.

Barak Obama is a wealthy man. Bruce Springsteen is a man whose life’s work about social justice and his net worth is estimated at over $200 million. Jack Dorsey, the founder of twitter, which is credited with advancing all manner of social movements, is estimated to be worth close to a billion dollars. Each of these people have made a huge different and a huge amount of money. All by staying true to their dreams.

2. Thou Must Be Financially Literate:

There is no free lunch in life. For you to be wealthy, you must be financially literate. People generally work very hard for their money but then squander it by making bad financial decisions. You must learn respect for the money you make and one of the best ways to do this is by using an “envelope system” for a few months.

This “envelope system” is easy. Simply cash your pay check and put all the money into different envelop for rent/mortgage, car, food, utilities, entertainment, etc. then go ahead and begin living your life. What the envelope system will show you where you are squandering your money and help you focus on the areas of financial distress so that you can cure the problem.

The rule is there is no borrowing from one envelope to cover a shortfall in another, when the envelope is empty then you are out of luck until next month…so make sure you balance your spending habit and budget.

3. Thou Shall Save Your Earning:

“A part of all earn is yours to keep, and if you cannot save money, the seed of greatness is not in you”.-Clement Stone.

Resolve today that you are going to save at least 10% of your income throughout your working life. This means that anyone, even a person earning minimum wage, if he or she starts early enough and saves long enough, can become a millionaire over the course of his or her working lifetime.

Developing the lifelong habit of saving money is not easy. You have to set it as a goal, write it down, make a plan and work on it all the time. Practice frugality in all things. Be careful with every penny. Question every expenditure. A major reason that people retire poor is because of impulse buying. They see something they like and they buy it with very little thought. Remember Parkinson’s law, “expenses rise to meet income”.

Start by saving 10% of your income and maybe even 15% or 25% and live comfortably with the balance. This process has worked for everyone who has ever tried it. Try it and see for yourself.

4. Thou Shall Live A Healthy Lifestyle:

It is a popular slogan, “health is wealth”. Having money doesn’t make all your relationships flow smoothly. It doesn’t protect you from diseases- it may buy you better medical care after the event but it does not protect you. You must live a healthy life. What is money if you can’t enjoy it in a healthy way?

You can make lots of money, you can enjoy your job, and you can sleep well at night. If you are starting to lose sleep or have stopped enjoying it, then you need to have a talk with yourself.

5. Thou Shall Commit To Lifelong Learning :

“Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field”-- Dennis Waitley

You have more brains, ability, and intelligence than you could ever use if you were to work on developing yourself for the rest of your life. You are smarter than you can even imagine. Leaders are learners. Continuous learning is the key to the 21st century. Make a decision today that you are going to become a student of your craft.

There are three keys to lifelong learning according to the one of Americas motivational speaker and writer, Brain Tracy.

The first key is to read on your field for at least 30 to 60 minutes each day. Reading is to the mind as exercise is to the body. Reading for an hour each day will translate into about one book per week. One book per week will translate into 52 books per year.

The second key is to listen to audio programs in your car as you drive from place to place. Turn your car into a learning machine, into a university on wheels. Never let your car be running without an educational program playing.

The third key is to attend every course and seminar you can possibly find that can help you to become a better person in your field.

6. Thou Shall Love What You Do:

“When you start doing what you really love to do, you will never work another day in your life”—Brian Tracy.

Doing what you really love to do is one of the greatest secrets of financial success. Self-made millionaires are those who have found a field where their natural strengths and abilities are exactly what is required to do the job and achieved the result required.

Here is a question for you: if you won a million dollars tomorrow, would you continue to do what you are currently doing? Self made millionaire would continue doing what they are doing. They would only do it differently or better or at a higher level. Because they love what they are doing.

7. Thou Shall Not Live By Bread Alone:

What is bread in this context? “your salary” you must not depend solely on your salary. Robert Kiyosaki once said, the definition of wealth is, “someone who can survive five years outside his/her salary. That means for someone to brag that he/she is wealthy, he/she should be able to live four-five years aside salary. And how can that be possible? It is by acquiring assets. What is asset?

Asset is anything that put money in your pocket e.g. shares, monetize blog, investment portfolio, your personal business etc. The rich work so hard to acquire assets that is the reason they are rich. So that they can enjoy their life even after retirement.

I want to challenge you to make it a commitment to acquire at least one asset every year. So that you won’t depend on the government or your company for your retirement benefit. “The poor work for money while the rich make money work for them”—Robert kiyosaki.
This can only be achieved when you have acquired enough assets in life.

Final Note

As I explained to you earlier in the article, these commandments can make you rich not minding you status, what it mind is your obedience to it, either you are poor now or rich you can still become rich or richer following and obeying these simple commandments.

Simple Secret To Wealth: How A Life Coach Can Double Your Income This Year.

The easiest way to go from dream to reality is to leverage on the success of the successful one, It is a fact that is been said "if one is on the shoulder of someone who has done several time what you are struggling to do, definitely you are bound to see, do and achieve far more easy than what they had see, done or achieved.

Even in the mist of this messed up economy you can still fly like a dove because In every shift of the economy — down or up — there are winners and losers, Even in the Great Depression, people came out new millionaires. Today will be no different.

The simple secret is to find a Life or success coach who's ready to take your success as his own,remember the last time you attended a training program, seminar or other motivational event and left feeling energized and ready to truly take your business to the next level?

What happened a few days later?
Chances are, the same old habits started to creep back into your life almost immediately. That focused energy you felt just a few days earlier dwindled to a mere spark.

We’ve all experienced that kind of letdown. But what if there was a way to keep that energy level constantly high – so high, in fact, that you couldn’t help but move forward? That’s exactly what a life coach can do for your career. I’ve seen it time and time again. From the time I was 15 and I decided to start a business of my own, when I knew nothing about the business world, how I became an expert in my field just after following few successful men blueprint. 

I’ve found that even people who are initially reluctant to try a life coach change their attitude once they experience just one initial coaching session.

The right life coach can literally help you double your income this year. Here’s how to choose a life coach that will have the most impact on your career: 

Choose Your coach and not your coach choosing you.

You..... not your coach should always be the focus, you are the one that knows what you want from life, you have to be aware that you will be totally impacted of every knowledge and characteristics your coach possesses, A good life coach never takes a one-size-fits-all approach. I’ve seen firsthand that what works for one client might be a totally inappropriate approach for another. If you get the feeling that your life coach isn’t tailoring the experience for YOU, maybe it’s time to move on. 

A life coach must take the time to learn your values and your life’s purpose. 

No two people will have the same combination of beliefs and goals. It’s your life coach’s responsibility to learn both, and to bring you back on track if you stray from either one.

The best life coaches are never afraid to tell you the truth. It does you no good if your life coach is simply a cheerleader. True, that’s part of it. But for a life coach to truly have the kind of impact that’s going to double your income, he or she has to also be willing to honestly discuss those areas of your life or career that need improvement.

How To Profit From A Life Coach.

Copy his strategies.
Chances are that what worked for your life coach will work for you If you can try copying his strategy, how do know what works for your life coach? Get close to him, do a comprehensive study on his business if you don't do this, you could easily end up copying one of his failed strategies.

Maintain A Positive attitude.
This can go a long way to create amazing opportunities for you which is the easiest way to get wealthy, I’m sure you’ve heard it before: your chances of success are higher when you focus on creating opportunities and exploring every opportunity that comes by making them count. A positive attitude under a positive coach is one key that opens success door and double ones income.

Be a fast follower.
A fast follower is one who see beyond someone's idea and take a bold step to customize such idea which later become something different and new where as It's just same idea as It's original but just a bit customize.

Been a fast follower is a good example of smart working, to really double your income and maximize profit from A life Coach you need to be a fast follower.

Final Note.

What kind of people start their own business and create millions of dollars in profits? The people that believe they can. What teams make it to the Super Bowl? The teams that believe they can make it. What kind of people have a thriving marriage threw all the ups and downs of life? The people that believe they can.

Success Guide: How To Make 2016 A Awesome And Fulfilling Year 

The difference between who you are in 2015 and who you will be in 2016 Is what you will do in the new year, practising the same daily tasks and taking same daily actions of last year will produce same result.

This year 2016 we believe to be our year of fulfillment and reward, this will be much easier and possible if only we do the things expected of us by God because He (God) only does miracles and not magic, so we are expected to open the floor first before we start getting his blessings.

This blog post is written in form of an advice and not really in a full article context but still very much interesting and helpful so enjoy as I discuss proven ways you can make year 2016 a awesome and fulfilling year.

Set Goals In 2016.

Many people have said this to you, you have seen a lot of articles, Facebook post and blog post addressing this same point but the fact is you are yet to set goals for the year. You need to set goals in 2016 because you will have no options than to succeed and fulfill those set Goals.

When you set goals you are setting a loud alarm that will also remind and remember you of where you ought to be, I know you have dreams you want to hit it big in year 2016 but how do you plan to do that? Don't tell me how just pick a pen and a book and write down those plans, set your goals short term and long term, set for this month of January, set for the next 6months and also set for the whole year.

Take More Of Action In 2016.

In 2016 take more of actions than planning because small deeds done is better than great deeds planned, yeap it is truth that You have written down your plans, dreams and vision for the year, the next step is to take the necessary action because It is not enough to set goals without trying as much to fulfill those goals. Good decision are pretty good but dirty useless if we refuse to take actions on them. The only ways to fulfill your dream this year is to wake up from them and start doing something.

Re-position Your Mind.

In this year 2016 If we misuse our mind, our brain and our body will suffer, I also want you to remember that where ever you mind goes that's where you brain will follow. It is very important as a matter of fact it is a serious matter, your mind controls everything you do, I want to tell you that there's no action I mean nothing you do in this world that you didn't first think about it concious or unconscious, it is possible for you to say one thing and do another but it is not possible for you to think one thing and do another because before you do another you will conceive the thought first.

So in the year 2016 it is very important we re-position our mind for a awesome and fulfilling year, positive thought should be our habit.

Start Something

This is a new year and another better opportunity to start something new, either small or big just make sure you start something, I discover that the most difficult part of it is to start and also it is the most important Part, never wait for the time when no one will find no fault in what you are doing because that time might never come, as a matter of fact such time doesn't exist and this is the problem of many people.

In the year 2016 the idea is to Start Small, Aim High and Grow Fast this is because Ability last longer than luck don't try and be lucky rather try and be able.

Don't Stop Learning

The most greatest tragedy that can happen to a man who want to succeed in life is to stop Learning, If you stop Learning you will stop growing, in this year 2016 make it as a mandate to increase your knowledge base, this is Because you are as rich as what you know, learn new things everyday, no knowledge is a waste, that word is not just been said It's truth in fact every good knowledge is a blessing.

Final Note.

In 2016 Luck is not a factor. Hope is not a strategy and failure is not an option.
