I was thinking about the boldness it takes to start a business in Africa or any where else for that matter.
I think knowledge and information played a big factor for me. I know nothing is impossible and that God is on my side so it was never difficult to start Fresh Words.
You do not need to know everything about the business you are trying to start but you need to know enough to match your aspiration with it. Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is unacceptable because you will end up making mistakes you could have avoided if only you had done the right research or asked the right questions.

I wrote out an application for something recently and realized it’s important to be very good at something. Even if you can do other things, it’s good to be very good at something. People will pay for the value in you.
Branding. Marketing. Public Relations. Advertising. Kindred disciplines but very different. Researching at the moment.

We all have a reference. The reason for the action.
It is either out of an experience, counsel, book or ignorance. How do you know that colour is blue? Someone told you that was what blue looks like and you believed it. Whenever we have a choice to make, our brain becomes like a hard disk and we search through to find out if we have seen this done before or if we know how to do it. This is where references come in. When starting a business or some kind of project, it’s helpful not to reinvent the wheel unless you have to. There’s hardly any business that you are starting in which someone has tried a variant. When it comes to decisions, I find that the Bible is the best place to go because it is absolute advice that has worked for millions and is inspired by God. The Bible says those who sleep a lot will become poor. I’m not going to look for that one guy who got some money and claims he sleeps nine hours a day. He may be the exception at the moment but eventually, truth will catch up with him.
Find someone who has done what you want to do. Read his book. Watch his videos. Ask him how he did it. Ask God to guide you.

so ignore them. They are blind guides leading the blind, and if one blind person guides another, they will both fall into a ditch.” Matthew 15:14In whatever you do, look for people who have been successful to study, read about or work for/with. Why would anyone listen to someone who has no proof of what they talk about? It’s like having a mentor who has never done anything worth emulating.
The verse above interests me because Jesus showed us that it’s possible for blind/ignorant people/leaders can lead others. The one you listen to will lead you.

There is a difference between authority, establishment and order. From movies to comic books, we find heroes/underdogs who fight against ‘le system/the system/skynet etc’. Many people have this comic-book mentality in real life. People dislike the police and government for this reason. Many people see wealthy people as frauds or evil and will go so far as to say all rich people go their money through shady means. This is not true. I’m not saying this because of I’m wealthy. It’s true even if I wasn’t wealthy. Not everyone is the same.
Who told you to fight the system or authorities? Why do you want the underdog to win? What happens when he wins? Does another underdog have to overthrow him? What happens when you become the boss?

We came into this world alone and we will not leave with others. Where did the ubiquitous term ‘haters’ come from? Everyone says they have haters and keep talking about them like they are being paid to. Who cares about the people who are against you? God did not create you to fight with haters. Grow up already, stop regurgitating your favorite rapper’s words. He may not be the smartest cookie in the jar.
Life is more fulfilling when you live to be a blessing to others. Those who don’t like you should not matter.

Kiniun and company
Part 1
Kiniun is the Yoruba word for Lion. Meet Kiniun. Not the lion in this pic. Kiniun will be one of the mythical lions whose boldness is legendary. He is locally respected and internationally known.
His best friend for many years was a ladies man. The kind of guy who had sugar on his tongue, no p.o.p maff. {translation: there was no plaster of paris on his lips. This means he was a smooth talker.} 
Kiniun thought he could hang with this dude without being influenced negatively. One day he found himself talking to two girls at the same time, spitting game, doing the mack daddy ting, playa playa, whoop whoop. He made bad decisions. He knows now that bad company is like a cancer. The people around you will either knowingly or unknowingly help to paint your future. Eagles don’t fly with buzzards. Lions don’t hang around with goats.

Call me Dzata (not pronounced zata but more like jata). fyi that is not me in the photo. Whoever heard of a lion with a personal photographer.
I am the happy, quirky version of Kiniun. Kiniun reminds me of a grumpy smurf. He is the sage archetype in our anthology of stories. I am more of the fun loving I’ll pretend to bite you if you get too close kinda lion.
In this business, we value human education to an extent but we have realized that the world’s systems are very inadequate. They work if all things are equal but everyone knows all things are ever really equal. One person may try that and it will work for him but when you do you may get into trouble. This is where spiritual education comes in. The Bible talks about spiritual healing. Jesus taught us that He has given us the power to heal. All you need to do is believe. That’s it, B-E-L-I-E-V-E. When your pharmacist gives you drugs, you never go to a lab to make sure the drugs work. You believe him. When Macys has a sale, you never call their customer service to ask them ‘Is it really true you are having a sale?’ You believe them. God wants you to believe Him. What He says is true whether you can see it or feel it. Faith has nothing to do with sight. It’s in believing what is in the Bible.
If you believe, it will work for you. Don’t wait to try everything else.

A good product makes the user justify it’s use. 
I’m using Facebook because I want my network to see the scriptures, insights and interesting links I find online. 
I’m on Twitter because it’s the simplest way for me to find out news without reading the paper. I just follow people I suspect will share the news I want to know about .
I’m on Instagram because I get to see what’s going on in the lives of my friends in almost real-time.
I use an Ipad because I write a lot and apps almost always feel better to me on an ios device. 
Give your users or customers reasons to justify their use of your product. Not everyone will use it the same way but for people to use a product or attend an event, they have to justify it to themselves. This is one reason some companies, associations and political parties struggle so much to recruit employees and fans. The potential fans need a reason they can justify even if it’s a bad one. A good product makes the user justify it’s use.
