You Can’t Grow …….

IMG_1549Every time I feel like House of Ganiyah isn’t meeting its “financial obligations” to me, I attempt to go back to accounting/finance. Why? It’s a “route” I know and navigated profitably for 2 decades. So earlier this year, I decided to attend a financial counseling conference that would help me better explore the route I “already” knew. The 1st day was okay, but the 2nd day was painful. The sessions were “interesting” but I kept scanning the room thinking “who are these people? These things they are teaching to do aren’t the things my tribe need to learn. Yes there are folks who need this, but they are not my tribe.”
On the morning of day 3, the final day, which I skipped completely I started having an internal struggle. The thought of going back home that day to find “financial counseling” work kept sinking my heart no matter how hard I tried to lift it up, then I dared to think about scaling #RELEASE, doing an inspiring #MoneyMagic conference, making #SheEO bigger and better, re-launching Impact Africa to fund and build up micro social change makers in Africa, and my heart began beating fast and furiously. I began to visualize people coming in and out of the events feeling able and inspired, then my chest literally began to ache with fear, that fear your heart feels when you get on a high way in a busy fast paced city that isn’t home. So I decided to do it! What’s the worst that will happen? Failure. But if I am not ready to lose it all, then I am not ready for prime time.
We can’t grow when we stay on familiar lanes. It is only when we challenge own inner “status quo” that success happens. Until we decide to go big or go home, we will always be stuck as spectators of success. So if you are ready to stop being a spectator in your own life, then sign up to join me on my #RELEASE#NG tour in #Abuja on 25.11.17, #Lagos on 2.12.17 or #Ibadan on 9.12.17 #ISA#BGG. These are going to be small group sessions to ensure maximum benefits to my tribe, so you must be registered to attend. All registration details are at:
PS: These aren’t magic pill events, or motivational feel good talk-shops, these are inspiring and empowering “encounters” that will give you the clarity and strength you need to “do it.” Are you ready?

I am generally skeptical about soft skills trainings, but this one exceeded my expectations. I am someone that gets bored easily, so I usually find myself fiddling with my phone. I got to work on my mind a lot during this training, I also took a lot from it. It made me think, really think. I have always had ideas about what I would love to do, work that makes me happy and not just pay the bills. But I guess I have been calling myself crazy and not really having the guts to do more than dream and analyze. Now I am really trying to think through and see if I could straighten out the kinks and make my crazy idea work. It was not a typical KPMG training, but it was probably the best thing I could have done on a Tuesday morning. Thank you.”

Employers – Here are 3 reasons to sponsor your best employees to RELEASE Your Impact:

“Companies that learn what drives their best employees will see that it has nothing to do with work and everything to do with their lives outside of work.”
–       J. T O’Donnell, Fast Company

“When we only try to understand and affect what happens at work, we ignore the most basic tenet of person-organization fit: employees bring their whole selves to work. What happens after the workday may be just as important as what happens during it. …Our work selves are only one part of our whole selves–the other parts are the internal self, the external self, and relationships–and it’s important for employers to adopt a holistic approach to understanding employees.”
–       Susan LaMotte, Workforce Consultant & Founder of Exaqueo (Published in Harvard Business Review)

“Employees rank higher in public trust than a firm’s PR department, CEO, or Founder. 41% of us believe that employees are the most credible source of information regarding their business.”
– Edelman Trust Barometer
