Nothing is Given.

I love observing "Masters" marvel or celebrate with awe when they make perfection or achieve success.

A common one for me is when a renowned footballer plays a shot or free-kick and he is waiting to see if it goes in and/or the way and the excitement with he rejoices...

Building Happiness

I run a conglomerate of online media channels. 

In simple terms, I have several social media handles that make content for tailors, fashion designers and sewing enthusiasts. We've built an audience of about ten thousand followers across these channels.

One, in particular, is a memes page, and it's the most fascinating of...

Completed My First Book of The Year

This evening I completed the book The Psychology of Money. It's not the first book I picked up this year, in fact, it's not the third or fourth. I'd have argued Shoe Dog would be my first completed book this year.

Good Advice. Wrong Person

I'm an avid reader. Or at least that's what I'd like to believe. LOL.

But seriously, I think I used to be an avid reader. I've had several books I almost didn't drop until I completed them.

Then life happened, I graduated from university and got a job. Reading became a chore....

The Psychology of Money, Crypto and Me. 1

"How much this book?"

I asked in Pidgin English as I picked up a copy of Morgan Housel's The Psychology of Money. I had spotted this roadside bookseller from afar, but sighting this book made me turn.

"1,000 naira". I responded, dropping the book as I left his front and continued...

Business and risk

When starting a business, how can i reduce risk?

If I can remove โ€œthis is not a good ideaโ€ risk, then it's just left with โ€œis it gonna work?โ€ 

I can make money in already validated ideas. 
Is it a real thing people spend money on?
there's no validation needed.
And the good thing is,...

Laravel
All coming together

I pretty much went to some basics in PHP and Laravel this week. And everything seems to be coming together. SOLID principles now seem to make sense. Not because of the style, it actually makes the codebase readable and understandable.

All my learnings in the last two years seem to...
