Good morning! December is here! Wow ... in four weeks we will be in a new year. Before we even look that far, why don't we just pause and appreciate the fact that we have made it this far... through the first 11 months of the year. During which we have triumphed and overcome adversities, fallen, stumbled and risen, succeeded and failed sometimes, we have conquered and lost some, we have dreamed big, had doubts and grown in the process. All in all, we have progressed and will continue to move toward the rainbow. For most in my circle and... Continue reading

"You've got to WANT it, to WIN it, and we want it MORE!!!" ...is son's baseball team chant. Over the past several months, we have watched my son's Gamers 11U baseball team compete wholeheartedly and win games. It's been inspiring to watch them practice, gel, grow and become champions. There have been many success lessons to learn from the boys and it's a pleasure to share a few with you today. I did not grow up watching baseball. Growing up in Cameroon, baseball was not a sport we knew anything about. But as the saying goes, when you have children,... Continue reading

Second guessing ourselves too much often leads to lower self-confidence. Why? Because failing to follow our instincts time and again injects doubt into our minds and subsequently lack of belief in self. In today's Thoughts On Success, I'll like to encourage you to follow your heart. If you feel like writing something, write it; like speaking up, say it; if you want to dress a certain way, do so; if you feel like staying, stay; like going, go ... and if you're not sure what to do, take time to figure things out. It was Dr. Seuss who once said,... Continue reading

"Goals - including happiness goals - do not materialize by themselves. It takes work and effort to accomplish our goals daily." Success and happiness do not just happen, neither do they fall into our laps most of the time. I'll like us to discuss a different kind of success today; one that does not involve material things, but rather how we feel - our happiness! Just as we have been taught to strive for professional excellence, it is also important to pay attention to our general well-being - are you feeling satisfied, are you at peace with yourself (regardless of...

Who are some of the people who have inspired you in life and why? How have they been able to do so - is it by words, actions or very simply by being themselves? Well today, I am inspired to introduce you to someone very special who has had a strong influence on my life just by being who she is - my mom. Mama dearest. Before we go any further, please permit me to put it out there that mom has raised 7 children (7 born from her womb and many others whom she's a mother to). Yes 7!... Continue reading

Hi it's Wednesday and the Fall atmosphere is so nice and cool in Atlanta. I am excited because I received the edited manuscript of my new book and the accompany note from the editor was particularly thrilling: As you can see, the book title in the note has been blacked out. This is because I'll like it to be a pleasant surprise to you upon publication. The book is currently in production and should be available in 3 to 4 months! As you may have noticed, I haven't been blogging lately (sincere apologies)... but please be sure to follow my... Continue reading

Confession, I have been feeling a bit unaligned recently, like yeah... business is growing, but hmmm, there could be more, I could be doing more, achieving more; or I've got so much to do and not enough time, my to-do-list is endless, what's going to take priority over the other on this plate so full? - calls to return, interviews to prepare, events to plan, kids to tend to, books to complete writing, etc...all these 'important' things that need one's attention. I'm sure you can relate. Life and "busy people" issues, right? *Smiles* The past few weeks or so have... Continue reading

"Be enthusiastic as a leader. You can't light a fire with a wet match!" - Anonymous My niece loves gymnastics. Although I've always had a ton of admiration for gymnasts, I didn't know much about the sport. However, since spending time with her this past week during my stay in Helsinki, my niece's passion for the sport has been glaringly obvious and has me paying closer attention. She's constantly doing cartwheels, somersaults, handstands, swinging from bars, etc. She is extremely flexible and obviously has strong arms. One can tell that she loves the sport. This morning, we attended a program... Continue reading

“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.” – Bill Gates A few years ago (some 7, 8 years back), I expected smooth experiences and positive results in all business undertakings. The reason being that at the time, I was a top-producing Senior Vice President for an mlm company and what effort we put into building the plan, 8 out of 10 times would yield positive results as the home-based business grew leaps and bounds. Then in 2010, I decided to take a leap into being 100% CEO of my company. DUNIA Magazine was... Continue reading

"I stopped and smelled the roses, and suddenly, the day seemed so much brighter." ~ Lema ~ Hello family and welcome to the blog. I was out running errands today and on my way out of the bank, I just had to stop and take these photos. Standing there admiring the roses and taking in their fragrance as cars buzzed by reminded me that we can find happiness in the smallest things. Often in life, we do not even have to seek out the things that take our breathes away, they find us! We just have to be intentional in... Continue reading

"The light is what guides you home, the warmth is what keeps you there." - Ellie Rodriguez It's Spring! That time of year to brighten up and bring some color into our living spaces. This year when we decided to spruce up the house and do some painting, the first thing I did was to call in some professionals. We found the best in Oseas Painting, very masterful, affordable, easy to work with, fast and efficient. "Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need." - Sarah Ban Breathnach "He... Continue reading

"Now there are five matters to which a general must pay strict heed. The first of these is administration; the second, preparedness; the third, determination; the fourth, prudence; and the fifth, economy." — Wu Ch'i (430-381 BC) We can learn a lot from leaders in different fields of work. Upon reading the above quote, it was interesting to note that 'economy' came 5th and last on the list. As a leader one realizes that economics (while it has a role to play) is not often the most important factor in the leadership equation. What comes first is building, making a... Continue reading

Hello friend, how is your day going? It's another beautiful and lovely Tuesday here; cold for a springtime morning in Atlanta, but the forecast is for a warm rest of the day, so I'm excited. You know as leaders we are constantly on the move - working, making decisions, planning, supporting, giving ... and working again. It can be an unending grind. A leader does not live in a cocoon, he/she is constantly putting out life energy - physically and mentally. It is hence important to find ways to maintain motivation and keep a clear mind. This is necessary if... Continue reading

One thing that I have realized clearly after all these years of being self-employed is that success grows from what we are able to do for others. Yes ... ponder on this a bit more and you'll realize how much sense it actually makes: success grows from what we are able to do for others. Most often we make the mistake of thinking that a good idea, or great service is enough to get clients/customers rushing through our doors to buy. Hundreds of people, everyday, come up with brilliant ideas and roll out top-class products and services that somehow fail... Continue reading

I turned off the TV, Put away the laptop, And picked up some books#currentstate #Atlanta — Lema Abeng-Nsah (@LemaNsah) March 13, 2016 Every once in a while, you read a book that moves you and helps put life into perspective. Such was the case when I read THE LAST DAYS OF PTOLEMY GREY by Walter Mosley. I must say the author's writing ability, story flow and life lessons entrenched in the novel added up for a very impressive read. For me personally, it provided an insight into what a person suffering from dementia may be experiencing, and at the same... Continue reading
