We need to solve and not run from hard problems

There is no problem that cannot be solved. Money is merely a reward for solving problems. Therefore I conclude that the bigger the problems you solve, the more money you are going to make.

“It is not about building billion-dollar companies, it is about solving billion-dollar worth of problems”

Nigeria in particular and Africa in general has been highlighted as the next place where great wealth will flow simply because a lot of work – hard work still needs to be done here to build a modern society.

That is why it is small thinking for anyone to travel out of this country now without plans to come back. I have an understanding that Nigeria will not always remain like this, without constant power supply and good roads. It is now left for us to decide whether we will join the development of the country (and make a lot of money in the process) or whether we will just watch it happen.

I shake my head in disdain when I see a web guy is launching yet another forum, blog or social network. Time invested into that venture is better spent on really thinking on a real problem around us that we can solve.

It does not have to be a big problem on the scale of bad roads, but you can solve little problems around you with a little digital technology.

You now need to ask yourself, what billion dollar problem can I train myself to solve?

Think about these things,

You are the church you attend

You are the church you attend…

…and I think it is possible to “out grow” your church. For instance, if I get home and my mum hands me a feeding bottle to suck out of, I would not find it funny!

I have outgrown the feeding bottle! There is no satisfaction for me in that bottle! I NEED REAL FOOD!

Similarly,  there are various churches for people at different stages of their life, church is meant for much more than marking registers and keeeping in touch with friends. Do not get me wrong; the brethren in our churches have their place.

But ultimately, church is the place to meet God, expand your mind, groom you, grow you.

You should review your church today, ask tough questions. If you church is making you die….

Move ON,

What is the latest news headline?

I dont read “mainstream” news, I am convinced that it is junk and not useful.

By mainstream news, I am refering to the news that traditional news outlet like Channels, CNN, BBC and co brings to our notice daily.

Why do I do that?

News is negative

“The news media are, for the most part, the bringers of bad news… and it’s not entirely the media’s fault, bad news gets higher ratings and sells more papers than good news.” – Peter McWilliams

A bad news headline sells more online or offline than good news headlines. And so, everyday journalists make their rounds frantically searching for the bad news of the day. Why should I care?

News report about wars, natural disasters, murders and other kinds of suffering. It seems the only natural conclusion of watching or reading news is that the world is a terrible place, Nigeria is a graveyard and that it is getting worse every day. However, I feel that it NOT as worse as they paint it.

Negative news breeds negative emotions and for an Inventor like me, I cannot afford to load up negativity into my system; it will pollute it.

No time to check headlines

As the old saying goes:

“People who make the news don’t watch the news” – Anonymous

I am hoping to make the news shortly, so I guess I am getting ready. But really, the amount of time people sink into news watching, analysis and arguments at the bus stop is enough for me to think about my next marketing strategy or next idea.

Following the news passionately is just a grand waste of my time.

What do I do instead?

I created my own newspaper, so that I read only the kind of stories I want to read. You see: INFORMATION IS FOOD.

Information is food, certainly! It is like a buffet in that you are solely responsible for the kind of information you feed yourself, so here is how to create your own newspaper:

Head over to Twitter, create an account and search for people in your fields of interest and “Follow” them. These people will be always talking about information you actually need, like new trends in the industry.

A fashion designer is better off reading tweets from other fashion designers than reading The Punch.

Stage 2 is to set up a feed reader. A feed reader allows you to read the latest content from websites you are interested in keeping up with. Head over to Digg Reader now to get started.

Do good stuff,

You are better off feeding daily on news about your industry, that is how to grow

1 Earth, 3 Systems

Welcome to The Morebise Post!

Before I rush out full force to start sharing tips and resources, I feel it is important to setup a sort of background for the things I will be sharing here.

I am not a Tech Entrepreneur who goes to church; I am a Christian who uses his skills in Entreprenuership. My faith and believe systems do not operate like a tap: I cannot turn it off and on.

Before you click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of this email, let me explain how I became like this.

1 Earth, 3 Systems

We live on planet earth, earth is the realm where all living things dwells.

However, on the same earth, everyone is governed by a different set of laws. There are 3 systems operating on the earth:

  • The system of Men
  • The system of Devil
  • The system of God
The system of Man is natural wisdom, man can sit down to analyse and predict the course of actions and hence make decisions. This system however suffers from lack of true foresight and that is why most man made systems and establishments always crash in the course of time. This system is the one we train people about publicly in schools, teachings and writings.

This system is easily manipulatable by the other 2 systems.

The system of the Devil is when we operate by the backing from the prince of demons. Demonic inspiration and insights is given to a man, easily elevates him above his peers. This system is used by a lot of people who attained to global heights. We have all heard about the illuminati cult, that cult is just one of several. The system has a lot of downsides because whatever comes from the Devil is not a true gift; they are more like TROJAN HORSES that will hurt you more in the long run. In exchange for wealth for instance, many have traded away their life span.

The system of God is when we operate by the backing of El-Elyon, The Almighty God. He inspires and gives men wisdom to do great exploits on the earth. Whoever can draw close enough to God is elevated above all his peers. God has a way of doing things, but over time, religion and sin has eroded men of HIS true wisdom.

God never intended to only do wonders with Daniel, Job, Noah and the other fantastic heros we read about in the bible. He wants everybody – All 7 billion of us to exhibit this. But we have allowed the devil to cheat us.

Be not deceived friend, to make it in life, you must not only follow natural wisdom – the system of men. To truly succeed in life, you must learn how to operate using the system of the devil or the system of God. But after all I saw, learnt and experienced what the system of the devil does to people, I made my decision.

I only teach, train, write and speak to- the people using principles of the system of God.

There you have it, so if you decide the newsletter will not be for you afterall, no hard feelings. Just unsubscribe below. For those still with me, thanks! Tommorrow, we discuss business and Entrepreneurship.

Do good stuff,

This email can be replied to and I will be glad to engage in further conversations.

The Morebise Post

And so begins a journey, one I have postponed for up to 3years.A simple secured way to share ideas and discuss personally with family, friends, fans, Nigerians and who-ever stumbles upon me on the inter webs.

The mission is simple, I want to start consistently sharing THE POST everyday, there are POSTS and then there is THE POST. I am breaking inertia by composing and sending out this first edition to precisely no one.

But then, this is the same way every great thing started: GROUND ZERO.

Make good stuff,
