If your dream employer has rejected you, the path to self-employment might now be

open. Or a job that escaped you might allow you to concentrate on certain business areas

that you previously lacked the courage to tackle.



When I started blogging in 2009, it seems to me like a tall dream but being a very optimistic business oriented person I never doubted my ability to succeed in it. During those early periods, I was just having fun posting my thoughts and feelings on the internet without any recourse to profiteering or becoming popular like Linda Ikeji, Seun Osewa of nairaland, Ladun Liadi,, etc. But today, at least I have crossed the six figures mark in earnings when it comes to business blogging. My articles and blog posts appear on Page 1 of the Google search engines and other search engines.


Do you remember the old ways of keeping in touch with your clients? You usually patch them through telephone; fax machines, direct mail marketing, and even personal meetings. But now, entrepreneurs are just smart enough to use the existing Internet technology to be regularly updated of the latest trends in business and at the same time keeping in touch with their clients. There is now text and voice chat, exchanges of e-mail, website forums, and others.


One of the most online business innovation ever made is the transformation of the regular blog posting into an online business tool. Before, blogging is just used for showing different thoughts and ideas. Some are just for fun, while others are for promotion of something that others think is beneficial to other Internet users. In other words, it is just a bunch of personal diaries and bulletin board for those people who want to share their knowledge and thoughts to others.


But think again, it is not just for diary writing or whatever. It is now a promotion tool you can use to boost your business. You can set up blogs in your website and have it with an associated RSS feed. In other words, you can constantly keep in touch with your clients and potential customers as well. In addition, you do not have to e-mail them—your blogs will be responsible in getting the latest news without actually having to visit your website.

From Regular Blogs to Business Blogs

From regular blogs that you post for nothing, now it is called the business blog that can help you save thousands of dollar and providing you great business opportunity with just one click. Not only is it free to use but also it is user-friendly, can be customized, and can be a flexible medium for circulating useful information for effective positioning of your products in the market.

  • More than one in five of the world’s population shopped online in the past 30 days.


There are some noted advantages of entrepreneurs who engage in business blogging. Here are some of these advantages:

  • 77 billion global internet users in 2017, equaling 50% penetration;

Through blogs, you allow your clients to post their comments with regards to the product that you are offering. It can be of great help in improving your product through the suggestions that they will be posting. In addition, you can take immediate actions to your client’s concerns.

Since blogs are quite popular to most Internet users, it can be of easy access to your customers. All they have to do is to access to a blogging community, and they can read your latest product offering. Remember that these customers are just willing to create “blogosphere” of comments regarding your product/service.

How to make your business blogs as effective as other means of Internet advertising? You can submit your blogs to any blog search sites and directories. It will be a wise move especially if your site is just newly-constructed.

Business blogs provides you marketing possibilities of your product. Maybe your potential clients are just around the corner waiting for you to post your business blog.

If you’re suffering from prolonged sadness for quite some time now, you should face these bouts of depression and get yourself diagnosed by a psychiatrist, there are psycho therapists who can actually help you out with your problem.


The alarming rate at which people commit suicide lately is really a cause for worry, both the young and the olds are not left out in this ugly scenario. My last article was centered upon depression and worries, coincidentally, some suicide tragedies struck and the media went into frenzy on the news of a medical doctor who reportedly jumped into the lagoon from the third mainland bridge in Lagos state, Nigeria. And just when we thought we have had enough, another lady was also reported to have attempted similar suicide attempt around satellite town Ojo also in Lagos. What could have triggered this end-of-time trend in suicide actions by individuals?

Depression or prolonged sadness is actually quite common in the Africa especially Nigeria considering the economic situation at the present time, around 30 percent of the Nigerian population actually suffer from this illness, however, not all of them get to be treated, thus, depression and its ill-effects continue to be a burden to many individuals. This illness may seem quite simple to treat but in reality, it takes more than a little cheering up to actually cure depression. Constant visits to a cognitive behavior therapist is a must as well as taking all the prescribed medicines that the doctor will ask the patient to take – none of these exactly come cheap, but the amount of suffering that a person is going through because of depression is enough reason already for others to start taking notice and face depression head on.


Depression oftentimes can easily get in the way of an individual’s daily activities and his or her normal functions, one’s enthusiasm for life can quickly and easily dissipate due to depression. And in place of an individual’s sunny disposition is more or less a person who hates him or herself, having no self-confidence, trying to isolate oneself from the world and basically just not caring about living any more. More so, a person suffering from depression isn’t the only one who’s going to suffer from this destructive illness, his or her loved ones are sure to follow suit. By seeing the individual grow through such rough patches, basically not caring about anything or anyone anymore, it’s highly likely that not only will depression affect one’s relationship with oneself but with his or her loved ones too.


Fortunately depression can now be cured, especially when diagnosed early, depressed individuals can actually be treated through therapy and medication, although it may be a bit costly, a person’s good mental health is something that shouldn’t be frugal on. Cognitive behavioral talk or interpersonal talk are just some of the available psycho-social Continue reading


FEAR4Honestly, I have never really been worried and disheartened in recent times as compared with the period when I was an employee chasing unimaginable monthly sales targets here and there. I was terribly stressed when I was still single in contrast to when I am now happily married with kids and lots of fatherly roles to play at the home front.

The pervasive news about recession seems to me a global phenomenon and not a malaise peculiar to Nigeria as a country. However, recession itself is not the major impediment to survival but the willingness of the people to look inward and create alternative source of income. Any nation whose development and growth is hinged on a monolithic based economy will ultimately fall into recession whenever it experiences financial shocks.


Doing extra jobs, working extra hours, selling extra products, doing holiday and weekend jobs, affiliate marketing, by and large, earning extra income during recession is the greatest way to cushion the effect of economic depression, high cost of inflation, job insecurity, financial meltdown and the likes.

Have you ever imagined how it feels to get up at your own lovable time and not hasten to office in the regular chaos of snarling traffic all the while getting choked on pollution? And then, to begin the day as though you are fresh from home and nothing has happened.


Earning Extra Income has not impaired anyone up till now, and it should not be hurting you either if you start today. As long as you are willing to do that extra bit of work or take an extra mile trip for your boss, you should be more than willing to do so for yourself, especially if you feel that it would improve the quality of life of you and your family.


For extra income job to be more rewarding, it is advisable to start with something you are passionate about as extra Income does not come for free.  A little bit of motivation and inspiration could set the ball in motion even for a greater business idea.
