The best things in life are not things! They are people. And people are important!

Our advice for this week is to make the effort to show members of your family that they are important to you and that you care about them through the following ways:

1. Tell them you love and care for them as much as possible. Don’t wait till it’s their birthday or funeral to deliver a eulogy.

2. Create quality time to spend with your spouse and children.

3. Make a habit of calling your parents as often as possible. Loneliness is a major bane of old people. So make sure you mitigate this.

4. Don’t exploit, harass, abuse or snub family members, colleagues friends. Remember there are no ordinary people.

We all benefit when we do things right.

Be careful how you behave around food and freebies.

It is uncultured to fight over freebies or become the person that carts away food at parties.

When attending a party, these points will serve you well:

1. Ensure you eat before you attend a party. You might misbehave if you are hungry.

2. Cultivate the discipline to eat, drink or take just what you should using sensitivity and consideration as your yardstick.

3. Rather than make a scene, it is better to simply overlook it when you are not offered a souvenir at a party.

4. Learn to master your desires

5. More importantly, teach these virtues to your children.

People are important. The debtor of today can become the Dangote of tomorrow, the funny looking fellow might be your wealthiest client dressing down for that day. We must therefore make a conscious effort to give every customer our best service, no matter how we feel, and whatever is happening around us.

Our advice this week are:
1. Seek to exceed your customers’ expectation. A major marketing tool is ‘word of mouth’ which your customers will give if they are satisfied with your service.

2. Good customer service can help a customer overlook or accept  a product/service even if their expectation is not met.

3. Whether you interface with your customers face to face, via telephone calls or online through social media or email,  ensure you are courteous and professional in your dealings at all times.

Remember good customer service is key to a successful business.

Have a good week

It is very difficult to tell anyone that they have  personal hygiene issues particularly body odour. Most people would rather avoid the person than to make a big deal about this  problem.

The consequence of this is that poor personal hygiene can hinder your career and business progression, as well as your social life.

Therefore, our advice this week are:
1. Shower every day. If you have an evening event and you have been out all day, it makes sense to shower again if possible.

2. Use a safe deodorant.

3. Use a clean underwear every day. Everything and anything can conspire against you to create body odour.

4. Change your tops daily too especially if you live in a place that is sunny almost all year round.

5. Air your suits after each use.

6. Brush your teeth daily and floss regularly. Pop a mint or gum before attempting to speak to someone if you have been quiet for a length of time.

7. After visiting the loo, thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water. This is a safe way of maintaining good personal hygiene.

Do not accept or limit yourself to the label people have tagged you with. You are more than what you are now.

Our advice for this week are:

1. Remember “no one can make you feel inferior unless you agree” – Eleanor Roosevelt
2. Keep learning, improve yourself and hone your skills so that you will be competent at what you do.
3. Develop interpersonal and communication skills. These skills will definitely help your confidence.
4. Finally and most importantly, work on your character. Work on it everyday and every time. All other skills pale into insignificance when your character is defective. So start by being honest. Show integrity in everything you say or do as being credible is a key to leaving a lasting impression on people.

Have a good week.
