Who we are is more important than what we do. This is so true. Most of the time, we are so action-driven that we fill our lives with activities and bombard our to-do lists with tasks to accomplish within a period of time… and sometimes, we become burdened and discouraged when we can’t accomplish some of these things we set out to achieve.

Are you running a hobby or a business?
Last week, we touched on some practical steps to take in growing your small business and believe that the post would be incomplete if we don’t write about the differences between running a hobby and a business. The reason is, a lot of small business owners are running their hobbies and think they are running businesses. No wonder there are increased frustrations, poorly structured, and failing businesses as more people step into the entrepreneurship shoes.
This February, we talked a lot about growth and we will like to wrap the series up with a discovery we made on Facebook, the number one social media channel used in 129 out of 137 countries in the world. Facebook despite the outrageous competition, has been able to keep its head above the waters and retain its position as the top social media channel in the world. Certainly, this will inspire you to become a growth-oriented individual as well as help you stay ahead of your contemporaries.

You will agree with me that starting a new business is capital intensive.
Wouldn’t you rather learn how to fish from someone who has mastered the hook and the line and is swimming in the abundance of fishes? Who else can teach how to become a successful businesswoman than powerful business magnates who have broken barriers and risen to the top of the ladder?
These powerful women entrepreneurs have lessons to teach every African Business Woman.
Someone rightly said, “your network determines your net worth” True. But how can conservative, introverted individuals build a strong network that will be of favorable advantage to their careers and businesses when they’d rather keep to themselves and do their own thing rather than network and build solid relationships? We all have people like that around us.
