  •  There is more to starting up a #business than the interest in the line of business and funding. Do you know that?
  • Location, Location, Location : Before you root yourself in one area, make sure it’s the right place for your #business.
  • Always include a phone number, an email address or a website address where interested individuals can get more information. #Advertising.
  • It may be tempting at the beginning when you are low on funds to allow people to buy portions of your company right away.
  • Be Careful About Sharing Ownership

  • In partnership or investment in a new venture, look well to the character of the person you’re jumping into bed with. #BizNG
  • You need people to grow your company not money and money doesn’t always buy the right people. #BizNG
  • In #Nigeria, where bad service is commonplace, competition is needed. See how #ChickenRepublic has stepped up in response to #KFC.
  • Build redundancy in your business because employees have lives. Emergencies will happen and family comes first!
  • There’s a reason NETWORKING is a top skill in Nigerian business. You can’t thrive outside of the culture or context of your company.

  • Branding is just another name for creating a perception. Branding isn’t your company name. It’s not a logo #OjaySaysBrand.
  • A brand is a promise. It’s an expectation of an experience #OjaySaysBrand.
  • The company and tag line and logo and brand colours only exist to call that experience to mind #OjaySaysBrand.
  • Brands can meet that expectation, exceed that expectation or in the worst cases, fall short of that expectation #OjaySaysBrand.
  • The Red Cross is a bellwether among nonprofits, with a brand that literally means help is on the way in times of crisis #OjaySaysBrand.
