Are Entrepreneurs also Employees?

In high school, I started my first business. I was finally going to call myself an entrepreneur!

I was in JSS. 3 at the time, my third year in junior high. Typically called ‘secondary school’ in Nigeria. I’m not sure what that’s called in Canada, but if you are non-Nigerian reading this, I guess you understand what I mean.

We were a group of friends. Somehow I’ve always had a clique of friends all through my schooling years.

Anyway, three of us decided to start a retail business. We were going to buy cookies and sweets in dozens and sell them in units. By the time we started selling the first set, we were barely making 4 cents in profit.

These are the Top Workplace Distractions

A few years ago, we completed a project, and I remember how rewarding it felt. We had to research on workplace distractions, other HR issues, and possible solutions. Sometimes it’s not about the achievement or any of that.

It’s remembering the silly arguments you had just because you wanted to have a great project at the end of it all.

Refusing to forget the late evenings we spent with people we never imagined we’d stay that long with. It’s recalling that afterward, we all planned to spend the night at one’s house just baking.

We called it a ‘baking party’ at the time. I remember I fell ill and couldn’t make it to the party. Honestly, I wish I made it to the party.

Want to feel More Appreciated & Valued at Work? Here is How!

You go to work happy. Do everything within your power to meet the end of your bargain – do your job!

And your boss or employer never deems it fit to acknowledge your hard work and input.

This is not to say that you are carrying out your job because you hope to be rewarded or praised. I think as humans we just want to feel appreciated.

We want someone to notice that we put in some time to make some achievements.

I get it.

You get it!

4 Benefits of Having a Clean Workspace (& Quick Tips to have a Clean Workspace)

One thing I always take note of is the appearance of anyone’s workspace. My eyes tend to whirl around and I seem to pick up even the very minute details.

I love art in various forms and even though my workspace is presently very minimalist, I still appreciate it when I see a tidy and beautiful workspace, it makes me feel more comfortable to be around.

How to Deal with a Verbally Abusive Employer/ Boss

A few days ago, I had a conversation with a blog reader and she wanted me to discuss this topic. It’s quite interesting and somewhat troubling how some workplaces are structured. This goes down to the workplace culture which may take a while to change if the culture has eaten in too deep.

If you are still young and there were loads of jobs to go for, you’d most likely quit your job and hop to the next. But when there are no jobs available, or you are just way too deep to start afresh, quitting your job may not be the best alternative in this case.

7 Tips to Get your Dream Job as an Immigrant

Deciding to become an immigrant is one of the biggest decisions I have ever had to make.

It wasn’t easy to pack up my bags and decide to relocate to Canada. I don’t want to think that many people relocate to a new country without making concrete plans on how to survive in the new environment.

It’s so much of a serious decision, but I think that many people don’t know the proper ways to go about delicate things or what to expect. Also, they probably become frustrated at some point because everything seems different and not everyone has a great coping mechanism.
