Do you feel uncomfortable with taking the easy way? Yes, the easy way. What is the easy way? Are you that leader that is constantly on the go? Whose to-do-list is filled and overflowing with work and various responsibilities? You love what you do, right? You feel blessed to be living in purpose, right? So why do you find yourself working hard and having success, but unable to feel settled enough to simply enjoy? There was a time when all I did was chase 'success', I mastered success formula after success formula, met goals, experienced business growth and all that... Continue reading

"The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem." - Theodore Rubin The obstacles you face today are stepping stones to your greatness. Obstacles help us find our better selves, simply because in overcoming them, we are forced to grow, to stretch, to face our fears and to reinvent ourselves. Granted, as human beings we prefer to operate within familiar parameters, however, obstacles force us out of our comfort zones and challenge us to trouble-shoot, to learn, grow and develop a new way of thinking. This opens up... Continue reading

A great leader brings out the best in others; but in order to bring out the best in others, the leader has to first recognize and develop the best in themselves. This is possible when we have the discipline to work on (and "fix") ourselves first to move pass personal insecurities blinding us to the good and needs of others. In working on ourselves, common fears such as 'the fear of putting others first' begin to disappear because we are increasing in self-esteem and confidence, and the world no longer revolves around us ("me"). ...an ongoing process Leadership is building...

Dear Blog family, HAPPY NEW YEAR! How have you and yours been doing? I hope 2017 is off to a great start. It's almost the end of January and I am only now composing my first post of the year (*sad face!*). For those who missed me, I am so sorry for the lapse and I missed you too (*smiles*). Life changes, we change and sometimes patterns change also. This is probably the first year since I started blogging in 2009 that I did not put up a New Year's Day message here on the blog. However, I did share... Continue reading

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, subsequently leading to a subtle 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, speak up; 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 listen to your spirit. It was Dr.... 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
