That day was eventful in the chapel when I started thinking on my business model. For the first time in my life, I had an idea! I felt so good and I could not stop writing, it was really adventurous as I dreamt of many accomplishment in my mind, coveted many podiums. I thought I would be supported and the money was just waiting for the grabs as motivational speakers painted. Alas! it was more of a challenge than an adventure.

I understand better now, I have transformed my dreams to workable ideas and then into plans; I understand that there are no short-cuts to true success except I pay my dues through diligence and working creativity. I know now that smartness creates a brand and persistent hard-work sustains it.

The world has educated us that all is needed is the “eureka moment”, they forgot to tell us that we have to show due diligence.  The abuse of the statement “smart-work” is despicable in the modern times as youth now define it as “a state where you do not need hard-work but strategy and little work to succeed”, no wonder we do not have many businesses rising above the average.

I know that the best of brands are created by smart thinkers that are extremely hardworking at what they do.

Today I will like you to dream: dream wide, dream big, dream high because it goes for free then make realistic plan to unfold them.

To me, smart-work means “having a smart plan and working hard to achieve it”. You can always do more. Have a lovely week.
