A brief narrative of what the book is written to achieve:

Everyday countless numbers of entrepreneurs and business builders in Nigeria in particular and Africa in general, genuinely attempting to build great businesses end up with so much stress and frustration, wasting a lot of time and money in the process.


Painfully, about 90% of such businesses fail in the process because of a lack of proven model for building a successful business.


I failed a number of times in my business building effort because I had no proven model to follow and I want to ensure others don’t make the same mistakes.


The book is written to stop aspiring entrepreneurs from wasting years, efforts and millions of their hard earned money – first by helping them make the right mindset shift of what business is truly all about.
This is section one of the book.
