Making Money Vs Valuing People -Ibe

As far as I am concerned, relationships are more valuable than money. This is a hard truth I have come to realize.
People who run after money in ways unimaginable, without having a little bit of thought about how the next man feels will one day discover that he or she is alone.
Make sure people are excited to work with you, in spite of how much or less they pay you. This is because you won't remain at a level for ever. You will have to go further in life, and these people may be a stepping stone for you.
The more money you acquire-the more quality relationships you should keep. I use the word "Quality" because some relationships are one big torment.
Great relationships can help extend the stay of money in your pocket.

Business Performance Workshop Set to Hold in Owerri


Yes, we also throw Spaghetti, let's not play down on this.
When it comes to building a successful business, there is also that scared part of throwing spaghetti.
Is not like we entrepreneurs started out knowing exactly all we would do from alpha to omega.
Of course not.
Instead, in reality we keep throwing blows, refining our hypothesis, changing our underlying assumptions, sweaking things here and there until we find the right combination that unlocks our idea or process to real success.
That's why we entrepreneurs don't get so attached to a single means or process, so it's normal for us to try something, adjust or drop it, and try another one.
That's our life.
We shoot, we review, we re-adjust, we improve, and we shoot again.
Like other entrepreneurs, I have tried so many things in my journey of building my business.
Many of them didn't work, some did.
But in the process, I have upgraded my mental architecture, learnt what makes the difference, and I have a…
