the porn industry: influence on society morals

The porn industry in America is a thriving business which every dick, Tom and Harry is getting themselves into all for the sake of the popularity and the money which is involved. They all wanna make it very big, and the stars of the screens that they have there are all becoming the very embodiments of what the church and common Christianity abhors greatly. Talk of the likes of Nicki Minaj who is so surgically altered to become the very embodiment of the porn industry that the people are seeking out and they all love her very much and cherish her for the fact that she’s the sexual equivalent of an inflatable doll on the screens for them to ogle and wish they can fuck and get away with the fact since there’s the fake appeal that she offers to the viewing public.
Everybody is exposed to the pornography that is being dispensed across all the media types and there is nothing to be done about it by the viewers, some of whom even stumble upon the thing in the course of an honest internet search for something that will serve a great need for their lives.
And one would be very tempted to ask the burning question as to what the people that view the porn being churned out by both the professional actors and the amateurs that we have all over the place who are seeking their own little spot in the limelight with the best of them. There are the pictures of the stars all nude and done up in sexually provocative poses that have men having hard-ons for them at the mere sight of the nude bodies that are being churned out all over the place. We have the likes of our bad girl Rihanna posing and having Google turn up millions of hits per day for her nude body and her bum; we also have the likes of Nicki Minaj, Madonna herself who was the poster bad girl of the eighties and the nineties. And I ask again: are these celebrities trying to dabble into the porn industry that the common people have already filled to overflowing?
The average 15 year old boy has seen porn a total of not less than fifty times per month. Is this the trend that is to be supported by the people who are now screaming that their children are becoming too sexually active at very young ages?
The answer is too ridiculously simple: there is a glorification of the fact that a man and a woman or a woman and another woman or a man and another man or a mixture of the both, are having raunchy sex which will then be forwarded up to the internet with a single click.
Morality and decadence are now glorified beyond the goodness that is supposed to be the very milestone for the kids to grow up on. They now grow up on a rich diet of nude bodies and is that the very ideal that should be promoted? Move over, Briana Banks, and do you know why? It is because of the fact that the young ones are all taking over from the older ones in the porn industry. Just take out the time to perform a very simple Google search for the latest porn from the under-age category and the hits you’ll see for the sexual exploits of a young girl from a rural town in Minnesota will completely eclipse the hits gotten by a Nobel prize winner who wants to do something to the world and for the world. Is that funny? Or is it hot? Or is it some thing that the parents of the young kids of today should be very worried about in their beds as they sleep?
WHAT DO YOU THINK????

However, the lecturers there are really trying, and that’s a good thing to say for them. Lol

Law Firm Business Models in Nigeria: are the law firm partners wrong in their approach?

LAW FIRM BUSINESS MODELS IN NIGERIA

 

Many law firms in Nigeria start up simply because of the fact that the founders of such firms (erstwhile associates in other existing law firms) don’t want to continue working for their previous firms and earn little in the way of remuneration for their services. In some cases, the motivation is purely different: the would-be founders want to make their own name, using their own resources.

You may want to read: Top law firms in Nigeria and Law Firm Business Models in Nigeria: Are the Law Firm Partners in Nigeria doing it wrong?

However, many founders of law firms in Nigeria consistently make the same mistake across the various states of the Federation, to wit:

  1. Get office space
  2. Hire support staff
  3. Purchase office supplies
  4. Hope for the best in the way of client intake and business boom

Really, it is ideal for a startup to grow, and these founders of law firms wish the same for their own startups. However, there is a serious problem with their adopted strategy as aforementioned (which is no strategy, by the way). They tend to rely on market forces for their clients intake (and their hopes lie in the direction of new potential clients seeking to have legal fires doused for them in court). In this current disruption-based, innovation-moving economy, the legal services industry is a buyers market, and relying merely on market forces to grow a new firm may prove to be disastrous.

WHAT LAW FIRM FOUNDERS FAIL TO DO

  1. They Fail To Plan The Law Firm As a Business:

Law firms are like any other business. That is why there is such expression as the Business of Law. Law firm startups must be strategically and seriously planned by the founders like the founders of companies seeking to have exponential growth. Several questions come into play, and each question must be comprehensively and surgically dissected and answered in order to gauge the level of preparedness of the founders of the firm seeking to have the firm on ground. Questions like: who are we? What do we do? What are our core values? How do we work? What is our mission? What is our vision? What areas of law should we delve into? Who are our ideal clients for this firm? (in this case, such ideal clients should be comprehensively profiled, particularly as it pertains to age group and legal issues for which they may need the services of a law firm for) What is their demographics? Why would such already profiled clients choose the services of a new law firm over the services of already established law firms in the same location? What are the strengths the new law firm can boast of to use as a bargaining chip that will attract new clients?

The questions are diverse and seemingly endless, but until the founders of a new firm are able to answer these seemingly innocuous but extremely important questions, then it means they might not be ready for the new leap. They may not be ready for the firm. They may be relying on their emotions rather than hard facts and planning to set their firm on the ground.

In other words, they may have to go back to the drawing board and map out substantial business and corporate strategies in order to gain a broader and stronger perspective about their intended firm. Then, they can act accordingly.

  1. Growth Plan

Many law firms in Nigeria rely on luck to grow their firm business and develop to the heights they want it to develop to. The founders make the mistake of thinking that a law firm is not like any other business or company that needs strategic planning and business development ideas/plans to move ahead. They fail to ask questions. Strategic questions. They fail to hire experienced consultants to ask questions on their behalf if they cannot address the questions themselves.

Questions: How do we take over the market? How do we gain greater visibility? How do we become the top 1% out of the top 0.001% of the law firms practicing within the same city and across the same practice areas? What is the best management structure to utilize for the running of the firm? What is the employee structure? A partnership model? How do lawyers in the firm rise to partner level? Who controls equity in the firm profits? What will be the firm profit-sharing margins? How are studious, driven associates who bring in clients to the firm and who handles complex matters to stunning perfection be compensated? What about the need for outsourcing of issues like IT and law firm growth to specialists in their fields?

If a prospective founder can answer these questions, and if possibly, much more, then it may be a sure sign that the intended firm is on the right track. But if the founders of a firm are unable to answer these questions and more, then it may be a sure sign that they are not ready for the rigors associated with the Business of Law.

  1. Institutionalization

It is a disturbing trend that law firms in Nigeria, particularly those operating in Eastern Nigeria and other parts of the country outside Lagos and Abuja, fold up and close down with the death of the founding heads of the firm. Or in many cases, the old age of the founders. Once this occurs, the firm folds up. Decades of established good will and client relationships down the drain. Within a short time, such firms are forgotten. It will then be as if they had never existed in the first place.

Creation of institutions is the key to long-term sustainable organic growth of a firm. There should be a hefty, living strategy pertaining to how to institutionalize a firm and make a self-servicing machine that will live on long after the demise of their founders. If and when done, then the good will of the firm, accumulated over decades of client servicing in the legal services sphere of the Nigerian business environment, will live on. The life and engine of the firm will continue to live on and service the firm for possibly countless decades after the death of the founders and heads of such firms.

International Examples

Baker McKenzie: This firm was founded in 1949 and currently ranked as the second-largest law firm in the world, with over 13,000 employees and over 4,000 fully employed revenue-earning lawyers in their employ, with at least 77 offices across 47 countries in the world. It is also ranked as the second largest law firm in the world in terms of generated revenue with US$2.67 billion in annual revenue earned in FY2017. Headquartered in Chicago, USA, this firm is an international mega power in the legal services industry and services multinational corporations and top businesses across diverse corporate law practice areas.

A study of the exponential growth of this law firm from the time of its origins show that the firm did not arrive at its current destination by accident. It involved series of countless planning, strategic opening of offices across different cities in various legal climes: joint venture satellite office was opened in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1955; from there, within the next three years, other offices were opened across Washington D.C., Amsterdam, Brussels, Zurich, New York. And from there, while imbibing a culture of growth, the firm expanded, and over the decades, has established itself as a major player in the world’s international law practice.

Other examples abound, but these are not discussed in this article.

Local Examples

Olaniwun Ajayi LP: This is one of Nigeria’s leading law firms in the corporate practice areas. Though this firm, likewise every other firm in the whole of Nigeria, will pale into insignificance in the face of the multi-continental law firms that rule law practice in the world, it is on its way to becoming a great self-powered institution.

The founder of Olaniwun Ajayi LP (of blessed memory, who died in November 2016) left a massive legacy for others to continue. Currently, the firm is pulling strong in the Nigerian legal sphere and has established itself as a reliable player in international legal circles.

Such is the power of institutionalization. The power of legacies. The power of setting up firms that can survive their founders for countless decades afterwards, while maintaining the good will of firm name and its integrity.

BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER

Nigerian law firms has so much potential for long-term growth. All they have to do is to tap into such potential. They have to harness that potential. Perhaps the answer for some would be a do-it-yourself approach, but if it can work, then sure, go for it. If not, there are extremely intelligent business strategists and corporate consultants that can leverage their skills towards creating achievable strategic long-term goals that can stand the test of Time itself.

Should I Register My Business As a Business Name Or Should i Continue Without Registering It?

Should I Register My Business As a Business Name Or Should i Continue Without Registering It?

 

Case Study:

A friend called me up some days ago. She had recently set up her business and further has plans to develop the business into a top brand. She asked me if she should register her business name while using it. Her name is Ms. B. and the business name she uses is Ms. B Anthony Agency.

Analysis

Like many entrepreneurs setting up their businesses, Ms. B has fallen into the dilemma pertaining to whether she should take legal steps towards securing her business. To that effect, several questions will automatically crop up. What if there is someone else out there that has seen that her business is booming and wants to take advantage of the fact that she has not registered the business to register it before her and commence usage of the name?

Well, to her question, the answer is yes. She not only should register the business name, she is required by Law to register the name if it falls within certain categories. Furthermore, it is to her own advantage if she registers this business name. These will be discussed below.

Legal Regulation

Under Nigerian Law, the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) is the law that regulates the activities of businesses and other related entities in Nigeria. The Corporate Affairs Commission is the body set up under the Act to administer the provisions of the Act in respect of businesses that operate in Nigeria. To that effect, it is responsible for the registration/incorporation, management and dissolution/winding up of businesses that operate in Nigeria.

Business Name

The CAMA is divided into three (3) parts. However, since the focus of this Article is Business Names, the focus will be on Part B of the Act, which provides for Business Names and everything falling under it.

WHEN REGISTRATION OF BUSINESS NAME IS NOT COMPULSORY

  1. For an individual, if he uses his full name, initial and surname or the surname without any addition. For example, in the aforementioned case of Ms. B, she won’t have a legal responsibility to register her business if her business name is B Akinolu.
  2. Firm/Partnership, if it uses the full name, initial and surname of the partners without any addition.In other words, that they do not add anything after their names.
  3. Company/Corporation, when it uses its corporate name without any addition. In this case, applies to where a company is already existing and wants to be the proprietor of a new business.
  4. Where business is carried on under succession or new management.

Thus, if a prospective firm name falls into any of the aforementioned categories, then they don’t need to be registered. The owners of the firm can continue to carry on business without the need to register their business names.

NAMES THAT NEED TO BE REGISTERED

If the prospective name a person intends to carry on business which does not fall within the above-mentioned categories of names, then such name(s) needs to be registered. It is a legal requirement that such business name will have to be registered or it will not have the legal standing to operate in Nigeria. These categories of names will be underlisted below:

I if true surname of individual is not used.

  1. If additions of “& sons” is made.

iii. Any addition or subtraction to a company’s registered name.

Carrying on business with names which fall under the categories of names mentioned above without registration is prohibited.

Stemming from the above, a firm, individual or corporation is required to commence registration of the name it intends to do business with within a period of twenty-eight (28) days from the date it starts such a business.

Effects of Registration

Once a business name has been registered by the person carrying on the business, then the following consequences will culminate from it:

  1. A certificate of registration will be issued to the parties involved
  2. The business name as registered will be entered in the register of business names at the Corporate Affairs Commission
  3. The persons that registered the name will have priority over the name so that no other person can ever use that name again unless it is de-listed from the register of Business Names at the Corporate Affairs Commission. Likewise, no one can be allowed to register or use a name that, even if the new name is not exactly the same as the one already registered, such new name so closely resembles the already registered name that it can confuse people into thinking that they are one and the same.
  4. It gives the public the true identity of the persons behind the business.

Note: A company can register a business name as a proprietor of the business.

CONCLUSION

Registering a business name is a paramount consideration for a proprietor seeking to start up a new business venture. It should be one of the very first considerations such a person shall consider in order to kickstart the business into operation.

Other matters which will come up in the course of the existence of the business include: The need for a contract of employment for incoming employees and several other matters like supply contracts, etc.

Email Etiquette for Professionals 

Many professionals deal with their emails everyday of their work week. There tends to be a very heavy reliance on emails by professionals in today’s fast-moving world. Emails fly between different departments in the same organization and between different people from all over the world.

However, I noticed a disturbing trend amongst email users that make them appear unprofessional to their intended recipients. Many email users fall afoul of certain rules which guide the e-communication world when it comes to the use of emails. It will be pertinent for me to note that the blunders to be highlighted in this article has to do with professionals sending emails to strangers across the Internet ether; people they have never met before.

I will highlight these blunders below and suggest working remedies for each one of them.

ALWAYS USE A TITLE

Seriously, so many people make this particular mistake. I wonder why someone will send an email without making the effort to use a title in the appropriate area of the page. The title of the email automatically serves as the introduction/summary of the contents of the email. At first glance in the inbox, the recipient will automatically know what the email that is nestled in their inbox is all about.

Leaving the subject matter area blank means that the recipient will have no idea about what the email is all about. They will have to open it to find out what the mail is all about. However, and you’ve got to trust me on this: nobody really has the time to start opening the email in order to know what it is all about.

Furthermore, an email without a subject matter indicates that the sender of the mail did not put in much thought into sending the mail. And once this is the case, do not expect the recipient of the mail to put in any thought opening the mail.

ADDRESS THE RECIPIENT

If you as a recipient is sending a mail to someone for the very first time, make sure to address the person by name at least in the first line of the email body. The reason is simple: the recipient of your mail does not have your email address in their contacts list. Thus, when a new email comes in, their email spam folder works overtime to make sure that emails which they do not consider to be useful will be tossed into the spam folder without a second thought.

As an email sender, you know whether or not your email address is in the contacts list of the recipient’s email. If you haven’t had prior contact with the recipient via mail, then chances are that the person does not have your email in their contact list which means that your email will most likely find its way into spam folder.

So, to avoid this mistake of having your very important mail tossed out into the spam folder as if it has no meaning, always make sure to address your recipient by first or last name in either the subject line of the mail or most preferably in the first line of the email proper.

In this case, a simple “Dear sir” or “Dear Ma” will not suffice. It will be better to address a person you’re sending a mail for the first time to using their name such as: “Mr. Andrew Lang”, “Ms. Pepper”, “Dear Kingsley”.

ILLUSTRATION

Many people complain that when they receive emails from marketers cold-emailing them, those mails often turn up right in their inbox whereas emails from colleagues, friends and family, turn up in the spam folder.

There is often a common denominator that determines this: most of these so-called marketing cold emails address the exact person the marketer is reaching out to. Thus, the spam filters will think that the sender knows the recipient, so it will pass the mail. Conversely, that colleague who sends an important mail will wait for days or weeks and receive no acknowledgment from the recipient that their mail is as yet, not attended to. Chances are, that mail is sleeping in the spam folder. And no one reads their spam folder. It’s just not worth the effort.

KEEP YOUR MAIL NEAT AND TO THE POINT

Some people tend to ramble when they write their emails. However, shorter and more succinct is always better. People have a tendency to distrust blocks of plain text, and since most emails contain little or no images, it is advisable to also ensure that the text is kept to a minimum. Use bullet points and short sentences. Get straight to the point. Do not waste the time of your reader by trying to ramble; this is a turnoff.

Type your mail in MS Word: Have you noticed that most emails servers do not have great formatting? Thus, it is better to type your mail in your MS Word or other Word processor, format it as you wish, then copy and paste from your Word Processor into your email send-mail interface. Use a clean font like Times New Roman. Your reader will thank you for it.

Insert a signature: An email service like Gmail has an area in the Settings tab where you can add a customized signature that will appear in all your mails. Kindly use it. Your recipient may read your mail and wish to revert back to you via phone call or Skype, only to see that you have no such details in your mail. Besides this, it can help you to point out your social and professional media handles: add your links to your LinkedIn profile, Facebook, blog, etc.

BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER

Email communications is very important in today’s digital-based world, perhaps more than many people will ever care to acknowledge. The secret to emailing is to know how to do it properly, particularly when sending a mail to a particular mail address for the very first time.

Avoiding the aforementioned mistakes can lead to seamless communications between people.

Vaping FAQs for Vapor Cigarettes/E-Cigarettes

It is true that e-cigarettes and other vaping devices are all the rage currently. Many people are skipping over from traditional cigarettes and trying the different electronic brands in the market. But before you start, you may likely have several questions about vaping on your mind. Read on then, and get your vaping questions answered.

What Are E-Cigarettes?

E-cigarettes are devices constructed to look exactly like normal cigarettes but with the difference that they do not give off real smoke and requires no matches or lighters. All you have to do is to recharge your battery-depending on the type you’re using-then turn on and puff away.

Why Should I Choose E-Cigarettes Over Normal Cigarettes?

Well, for years, people have looked for healthier alternatives to ordinary cigarettes because of the sometimes severe health hazards associated with them and the foul smoke they give off. With e-cigarettes, what’s inside your pipe is liquid nicotine which is then heated up by batteries to emit smoke. So, in essence, they are healthier.

What Makes E-Cigarettes Special?

Ah, simple. E-cigarettes offer different blends and mixes and flavors; something you’ll never find with a real cigarette. There is a different flavor and mix for every taste and palate, something conventional cigarettes don’t offer. With ordinary cigarettes, all you get is your tobacco and nicotine; nothing else. With vaping, you get your nicotine plus several other flavors, minus the tobacco.

Why Do People Smoke E-Cigarettes?

Well, for conventional smokers who wish to quit smoking but are finding it difficult to stop smoking, they take to e-cigarettes as a way of still having something to smoke without giving up smoking entirely. That way, they can gradually wean themselves off of cigarettes. Also, they might want to smoke in a public place without offending the sensibilities of those around them with the foul odor from their cigarettes. For non-traditional smokers, curiosity would be the name.

What Are The Dangers Of Smoking E-Cigarettes?

People argue that they are much better than traditional cigarettes, safer because it offers a less toxic choice than traditional cigarettes.

Why Should I Choose E-Cigarettes Over Traditional Cigarettes?

Reasons abound as to why electronic cigarettes are better choices than traditional cigarettes. Contains no tar, does not emit any foul-smelling smoke, has fewer public restrictions, and is also generally less expensive than conventional cigarettes.

Does Smoke From Vaping Devices Smell Like That From Real Cigarettes?

No it does not. While the smoke emitted from real cigarettes is foul-smelling, the vapor emitted from vaping devices smells like the flavor of the e-liquid used. In other words, it is sweet-smelling. Several users and non-users have attested as much.

How Long Does E-Cigarette Batteries Last?

That depends on the capacity of the battery in the vaping device. Batteries can last from one hour to forty-eight hours depending on the capacity and usage. Heavier use will ordinarily reduce the amount of time it will last, likewise reduce the overall charging time. So, to forestall a situation whereby you want to vape and it turns out that your battery is flat, please carry a spare battery in your holdall or pocket.

What Are The Ingredients Used In Vaping E-Liquid?

Generally, the ingredients used in making the e-liquid are: sweet-flavored propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, flavoring (different flavorings for different flavors so vaping device users can have an assorted choice to choose from), highly diluted nicotine. There, you have your e-liquid for your vaping pleasure.

What Are Vape Starter Kits?

These are the different kits offered by vaping products sellers for the vaping needs of different levels of vapers at different prices. It could be the Cartomizers, or the Clearomizers, or the Tanks, each shaped, weighs, and flavored differently. It just all depends on the vaping needs of the person purchasing the kit. And also on the size of their pockets.

What Are The Best Vaping Setup For New Vaping Beginners?

There are no right or wrong choices, really. New e-cigarette smokers and vapers can simply look through available catalogs, decide on any of the diverse offerings for sale (also look to your pockets because the prices vary), and then experiment. That way, you can find the right setup you might to stick with for the long run.

How Do I Smoke My E-Cigarette?

Unlike conventional cigarettes that require a box of matches, e-cigarettes have a small tank which is filled with the e-liquid (liquid nicotine and other liquid elements) which is heated by batteries when you turn it on. Then you start smoking your cigarette or pen-whichever you chose. And anywhere too, since you don’t have any foul tobacco smells to contend with.

How Do I Charge My Battery?

First, you unscrew the battery and then detach same from the atomizer. Then you screw the battery to the end of a usb cord, plug the end of the cord into an adapter or a usb port in your laptop, after which you plug into a power outlet and then charge. Please take care not to overcharge or the battery can lose power.

How Do I Take Care Of My Vaping Starter Kit?

When you buy a vaping starter kit, it is good to maintain it properly, else you might start encountering unwanted problems with it. Ensure you clean your device everyday because dirty connections in your device may cause it not to work properly. Clean the atomizer connector and battery connector thoroughly with a cleaning agent. To this effect, rubbing alcohol or baking soda with a scrunched-up tissue will work perfectly well. Also, ensure that you don’t overcharge the battery or it will begin to lose power. So, once the charging cycle is done, ensure you unplug the device totally from the power outlet.

Which Vaping Poducts Should I Choose?

There are a lot of products in the market and the choice can be extremely daunting, particularly for a beginner. All you have to do is browse through the available catalog, noting down the model, design, price and special features of each product, then you make your choice. There is no right or wrong choice; each product is different and comes with unique features that set it apart from the other ones in the market.

Where Can I Buy Vaping Kits?

You can browse through the vaping products catalog here and make your choice.

What Are The Best Vaping Products Out There?

This is a question that would be better answered along the lines of consumers’ personal choices. You make your choice, then decide to stick with it.

Hope that all these answers your vaping questions.

Bobrisky – Lessons to learn from Bobrisky

Bobrisky (aka Bobrisky222)Lessons to learn from Bobrisky

By

Kingsley Adrian Banks

 

A lot of people have heard about this guy and more people keep on hearing about him by the day. His real name is Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju. He is a Nigerian internet celebrity on Snapchat and Instagram, well known for his cross-dressing and Michael-Jackson style use of bleaching products for skin lightening.

Why would I suddenly decide to write about this guy? Two reasons: 1: I have not posted anything for some time now due to connectivity issues; for that I apologize to my readers and followers. 2. This Bobrisky guy is making waves, and continues to make a lot of waves even now as he frolicks around the US on a ‘tour’.

Bobrisky is obviously an effeminate man (this much is obvious from the manner he carries himself and his soft, feminine voice), and must identify as a transgender or gender-neutral guy, what with the way he has defied gender stereotypes and has used his extreme left-wing deviance to garner lots of online media attention.

He has broken a lot of the norms the Nigerian society champions with their draconian approach and puritanism. He dresses and appears to the entire public as a woman-and those who meet him without really knowing who he is will naturally believe he’s a woman-though he is a biological male. This has brought him mixed attention. Some people love him; others hate him. Some are simply neutral about him because they don’t give a damn and couldn’t care less if he transforms himself like Caitlyn Jenner did. I know all these because I am curious about this bold guy that defies the entire Nigerian nation, so I see a lot of the mixed views people hold about him.

However, it is worthy to note certain factors which a lot of people really do fail to grasp about his situation:

  1. The more they talk about him, the more popular he becomes. I found him myself by accident while doing research for an article.
  2. Because of his popularity, he has managed to build himself into a brand and has become the poster child for cosmetic de-pigmentation (skin bleaching).
  3. The more efforts people make to deride him and hate on him, the more others love him for being true to himself (in my own little way I must say I admire that; he can really be himself without caring about what anyone thinks about him)
  4. The more popular he becomes, the more people learn of his product, see his photos, and want to attain the kind of lighter skin he has. Which means more sales of his Bobrisky bleaching cream, and more money in his account. That is what people do not understand; their anger and hate fuels his success.

LESSONS TO LEARN FROM BOBRISKY

  1. Be true to yourself and be the person you want to be. (He said it himself that he had always wanted to look and feel like a real woman; now he does. Babe even looks more glamorous than some biological females)
  2. Parlay yourself into a brand. (He did that, and his name is going down in Nigerian history as the first openly cross-dressing man in mainstream media)
  3. Work to achieve that objective you want to achieve. (He always wanted to look the way he does and he worked towards it, now he’s like that, along with a lot of perks attached for him)
  4. If you are able to close your eyes to what people say-or will say-about you and your chosen line of work, then you will most likely succeed in it, because nothing kills creativity like the fear of the masses. (This is my own personal advise to people out there).
  5. And finally, work hard to get it till you get it. And you will get it if you persist enough. Just look at Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju aka Bobrisky.
