#MondayMotivation Old School Versus the new – Leverage on the 21st Century Technology

Hi,
Its been a while. Certainly miss you all. I hope to get back to sharing new posts now that I am on work break!

Earlier this year I decided to record short videos sharing motivational pieces and to also inspire my friends and followers to keep adding value to themselves. I didn’t have all the technological know how but hey using my Android phone to record was a good enough place to start. And I decided not to wait until things are perfect and just kick started it. My videos are better and I am helping loads of people out there from the feedbacks I’m getting. That’s good enough for me as I keep developing my craft and making it better.

Don’t wait to get things perfected before you start doing something about your goals, ideas and dreams. Just start and grow through the process.

Take a quick listen to my Monday  chat. This will take less than 3minutes. What are you doing with your social media platforms? Scale up your visibility. Don’t be shy to show case what you do. #NuggetsforAProductiveWeek

#MondayMotivation Take that step this week, you have got so much skills & talent, show case it! Wishing you a great new week!

#NuggetsforAProductiveWeek

Phones, Androids, Tablets have taken over almost every aspect of our lives. Yes, because it has become our relationship hub; business and work on the Go! So what happens if you forget your phone somewhere or lose it?! Moods are totally reset such that sometimes it feels like you are “naked”, “disconnected from the rest of the world” and so on.

We all need to switch off our phones sometimes & plan a phone free day. There is a lot that needs your attention apart from the phone world. Your calls and messages can wait…seriously you will come to find out that they do not need urgent attention as you thought. So set yourself free… Free up your fingers and ears… Plan a phone free day this week!

Leadership, Teamwork and Planning: An Emotional & Heartwarming Meeting.

At the start of the year #XXFILES radio Women’s program kicked off with our new year goal oriented edition with #SeyiOwoeye & #FolakemiOgunsiji.

 

As the team lead and producer, I listened to these two beautiful divas present, on my phone’s  radio. After a while, I joined them in the live studio & at some point stepped out to give them room to express without fearing to make mistakes in front of their “Oga-boss”.  😀

After the program we gathered to have a meeting as is our practice. This time to strategically map out a plan & focus for the first quarter.

I thanked every member of the team for all the efforts each one put into making a great program for our audience in 2018. 

Then I asked everyone to express their thoughts on how we faired and about improvements we need to make to enable us serve our audience better. Instead of speaking about this, my team members started to real out how the program had made them better presenters and producers. Here are some of their thoughts:

Seyi – I didn’t know that I could do this. I am a very shy person but through this program, I have been pushed to present and now I am a better presenter & scriptwriter.

Folakemi – I always run away from presentation chores because I have microphone fright. In fact, I prefer recorded programs where my mistakes can be edited before broadcast. Now I am more comfortable on the microphone.
Sandra – I learned that anybody can present not just DCAs

Jadesola – I appreciate those who started this program with the intention of mentoring others. I am happy that our team lead did not just take over but allowed us to go on the mic and even pushed us when we absolutely felt we were not ready. I have grown.

Here I was listening to my team members speak about the little difference I had made in their lives… Tears welled up in my eyes.

Lesson For Me:

Mentor Others; Step Back. Let them learn even while making mistakes. Watch them grow & shine.

After this emotional and heartwarming brainstorm meeting my crew and I decided to launch out with a theme for the first quarter of the year, 2019.

XX-FILES Giving Visibility to Women Candidates in the 2019 Elections”. 

Our goal is to tell the stories of women who are vying for a political office at all levels of government and by that contribute our quota to making women visible. And hopefully get the conversations going about supporting and increasing the number of women leading this our great country at all levels of government.

So Dear Reader/Follower, 

I will be sharing the  profiles of some of these women running for political office here and letting you into a bit of What my team and I will be doing with regards to this. Cheers!

Be Inspired to Pursue your Dreams!

Christmas Mode Set 🎁 One Week to Go!

Hi,
It is an exciting day for me! This morning with no electricity supply to iron my cloth, I decided to pick a “wash and wear”, as we say in pidgin😀 So I grabbed my red dress and wore it. After all the paparazzi of dressing up and applying a little make up then I suddenly noticed my “hubby’s’ new Christmas cap sitting nicely on a hanger and bam an excellent match to my red dress was standing right there ❤️.

So that was how I nicely sat this green and red spot cap on my newly made hairdo… Hehehe… It felt really good!

What you wear can also reset your mood and day, I soon discovered.

All morning, I have been getting beautiful compliments about my outfit. Here is a photo a dear colleague took of me and I decided to share it with you my dear friends and readers in the blogosphere! 

I have been away for two weeks now… Stories waiting to be written and posted but my schedule has been crazy…. Look how my new red dress & cap to match has inspired writing again! 🙌🎶

I am sending you an early Christmas Wish.  May you experience new joys, love and peace this season.

For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

#GratitudeWeek Day 6 – A Cry in the Rain #Memories #Grateful

If you trekked(long walk) and endured a lot during your NYSC(National Youth Service Corp) days then you must be greatful that you made it through like me😀

I remember the long walks from Roundabout Mokola to Dugbe(some kilometers) many times – no money

I remember walking home in the rain one day as I wept but no one could tell the difference between my tears and that of the rain

I remember that I had so much fun too.
I remember the day of our passing out after the one year service to our father land(Nigeria) . I held the certificate of discharge in my hand and wondered what the future holds for me.

Its been over 17 years now! My journey through the years has delivered to me opportunities I never imagined! Now I drive through those same kilometers and neighborhoods I had to walk through in the rain/high sunny day 🌞🌞⛈️

Tough Times Don’t Last… That painful and dark season will soon pass giving way to light and better days. DON’T GIVE IN.

So I am here today saying thank you Lord, Baba e seee! Glory to God!

WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?

#GratitudeWeek Day 5 – Putting On My Dancing Shoes! 👠👠🎶

It is easy to focus on what isn’t working in our lives so much that we forget yesterday’s mercies.

So here I am celebrating today as a gift
I am celebrating the peaceful night rest I had last night and this feeling of freshness.
I celebrate His love for me;
I celebrate His faithfulness ;
I celebrate the fact that He fights my battle for me;
I celebrate the fact that he saved I and my family from accidents & moments of destruction!
I celebrate today and the great future to come.

Yeeees my tomorrow is alright!
WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?
