The Importance of Investing in Yourself...

FINALLY!!!!  It appears I'm back on board!  I'm trying out a new ISP and I sincerely hope this one's much better than the last one.  Goodness!  The past few weeks have been SUCH a challenge!

Great!  So here I am talking about the importance of investing in yourself today.  Perhaps stemming from the fact that I started a new stream of our in-house Foundation Course in Fashion Design on Saturday and as always, it was great and I received raving reviews from the participants.  But also because for every single time I get a registration for one of my courses, I know the person made a good investment, in fact the best investment of all.... investing in themselves!

SO... in preparation for Volume 4 of our Fashion Entrepreneurship Course with its theme:  How to Start Your Own Clothing Line: A Look at the Clothing Production Process", I would like to discuss the benefits of investing in the knowledge required to set up any fashion establishment AND implore anyone who would like to run a business on the importance of getting the requisite skills and the relevant knowledge necessary to operate in that industry.

Lessons Learnt from Dr Cosmas Maduka of the Coscharis Group @ the TREM VI Business Academy (13 May 2012)

Hello Everyone!!!  Hope you had a great start to the week.  Apologies for the staggered posts.  I am still having major internet issues and still on the hunt for the perfect ISP.  As soon as I am sorted, I'll be back with my regular posts!  I have lots of them lined up! :-D

Okay great!  This was my Sunday post and I'll make it really brief as I absolutely must give you the new information on FEC 4!!!  I am mighty excited!  BUT before then, let me share with you some vital lessons I learnt from one of the most humble people I have ever had the privilege of listening to and more importantly, learning about business from using biblical principles.  I'm sure this will help our fashion businesses no matter how small or big our businesses are.

So I was invited by my absolutely fabulous mentor to the Business Academy which holds at his church, TREM VI, Lekki Phase 1, once a quarter.  At the Academy, many businessowners and successful entrepreneurs are invited to share their experiences with the congregation in order to motivate us into thinking big.  

So anyway, despite the rain, I headed out thinking I'd spend only an hour thereabouts but ended up staying till 1pm.  I am SO GLAD I did and I just had to share this with you!
