When you are going through something hard and wonder that where is God

Remember that the teacher is always quiet when the examination is going on... 

We shall surely overcome all our temptations and trials in Jesus name. 

From trials to testimonies.

As we read these thoughts, know they are sources of guidance in times of need, they can give us inspiration in times of struggle, they can motivate us in times of tribulations–success is not final and failure is not forever:

It is the motivation we choose that matters most.

The Siege

The Siege

At the end of the day, an average Nigerian will not appreciate the value of money because of the mind bogging figures we hear everyday.

This is the shame if a nation. Before I am crucified, its not a PDP or APC thing. It has become a Nigerian thing to steal from whoever employs you.
Your family and church member expects you to be financially buoyant irrespective of what you do, your salary and whatever.

When you sleep in the night hungry and wake up with a Siena and a plot of land in Magodo, the shout of its the Lords doing rents the air.
When will this change? When will be become satisfied with what we have?
I think the government and leadership has a lot to do about this.
When will they begin to put enduring policies in place.
Policies with a human face. Affordable housing backed with mortgage. Modern transportation and educational policies that will not make you steal before you send your children to school.
Power sector reforms that will not make people steal to buy generators or bust pipeline.
I have come to realise that people go after money with the thinking that it will solve their problems but they DONT even know what to do with this money(s).
This is why you DONT see Nigerians run enduring business because they only live for now.
I can bet that out of the biggest 20 businesses in Nigeria, maybe we'll get 5 or 8 owned by Nigerians and the sad fact is you can count 50 Nigerians who made 50 billion naira in the last regime.

The question is, what do they do with the money they stole?
The answer is nothing.

Yoruba Cultural Dance Display

Yoruba cultural dance on display during the 9th graduation ceremony of Island Builders Baptist School 

Why almost everyone is doing summer this way, while you can do it this other way

Why almost everyone is doing summer this way, you can do it this other way


With the rate schools are going now with value delivery

It's going to boil down to one thing and one thing

It's Partnership..........

That's a story for another day.....

I should have posted this since yesterday but...

Network locked me out....

Finally they opened their doors to me this morning....

So here we go

Now the summer is here and 

A lot of activities has been slated by a lot of schools...

Which is great


How do you get people in....

1. *Create your summer class content*:- 

what will you be doing during summer class that makes you stand out..

In truth

Summer class doesn't have to be about what everyone is doing.....

You can come up with something totally different from what everyone else is doing....

a. _You can decide to have a fun filled summer where you go for excursion at a low cost every Friday_

b. _you can decide to have a Vacation Bible School summer where you focus the attention of attendee on a summer Bible school theme and activity_

C. _you can decide to play with words during this summer creating puzzles, word games, spelling contest, scrabbles, and mind you there are so many word games and puzzles online that you can use_

D. _you can decide to teach everyone a skill during the summer.... This is one thing most people are doing but I will advice you don't muddle so many things up... Just pick one thing and do it well....._

E. _you can decide to have a special intervention summer.... This is the focus in my mother's school this summer... An assessment is been prepared for every summer attendee the focus is to remedy somethings this summer and there is a Studio learning time each Friday on Science experiments_

F_you can decide to have a techy summer where you just teach a specific tech skill, coding, WordPress, this can go alongside fun academic content.

The point is to be unique and don't do what everyone else is doing

The bottom line is

Be unique

2. *Create exciting offers that gets people to pay...*

If you don't get your money right...

There is going to be a lot of frustration....

*Money answereth all things*

Here is the main issue

Most schools take this lightly and then expect a miracle to happen when it comes to payment...

Please understand..


Make no mistake about it

You see

Offers are one of the most powerful aspect of this system...

For example

A partner school structured an offer to all new parents that attends the summer telling them

If they registered and paid full for their children during holidays

They will

Take out the summer school fee and refund it to them....

Now am not telling you to use that offer

Am just making an example of an offer....

An offer is something that excites your client and gets them to take action on time....

I am working on over 20 offers examples you can extend during this holiday to your parents

*To get them excited about registeration... But it's strictly for my partners....*

The point here is...

Create offers that are exciting to the parents....

Another offer example is to give exciting payment plans...

Monthly payment

Weekly payment 

Daily payment


I know you think that's not what you can do...

Here me out first..

The idea of the payment plan is to convince people to pay the full price...

For example

If my fee is 10000 for the whole summer school

And if the summer school runs for 4 weeks 

That's an equal payment of 2500 right...

Good good


Take a look at the mindset behind this...

I could break it to a weekly payment of 

3000 naira per week instead of 2500..

The cummulative of which is 12000 naira 

Or break to 

1000 per day...

The cummulative of which is 20000 naira...

Wait a minute.....

The point is to show them the options available 

And also convince them to pay all at once 

In order to do that

You must show them the cummulative of the payment their making....

The decision will just probably make itself when discussing...

I hope you get that?

The more flexible the want the payment the higher the payment goes

Will it work for you? Maybe, may be not..

There is no harm in trying though.....

And remember that every offer must come with a deadline......;

There are two types of deadlines

Time line deadline and I have mentioned it above where I said...

*_if you make full registeration payment during the summer, your summer fee will be refunded to you full*


You could have a spot reservation deadline...

*This offer is only available to the first 20 students that register....*

And be serious with your deadlines....

More detail is coming up in the offer video I will be recording for my partners....

let me say this quickly


class starts on Monday.....

If you reserved your spot for the discount price..... It goes today.. you pay the Normal price from Monday.....

Here is the third thing

3. *Create an effective communication plan*

I will be breaking this down on Monday....

But this is where the money is Life builders....


This is where the money is......


I hope this helps....

Let me know your thoughts please...

Build a school that Stands Out...

Friends are forever

Friends are forever..

In good times 

In bad times 

Knowing that you are always there 

Forming words with *th* words

If you really care

If you care for your lungs avoid smoking. If you care for your heart, avoid excess salt.
If you care for your liver, avoid excessive fatty food. If you care for your stomach, avoid cold food.

 If you care for your intestine, replace junk food with vegetables.

 If you care for your pancreas, avoid overfeeding. 

If you care for your kidney :drink a lot of water during the day;drink less water at night;empty your bladder before going to bed. 

If you care for your brain, sleep for 8hrs between every 16hours.

 If you care for others, tell them these.

On Teachers Welfare and Salaries - don't get bitter get better.

On Teachers Welfare and Salaries - don't get bitter get better.

The truth is that teachers who are professional at work and who set themselves apart, will always be appreciated. Your boss may treat you in a manner that does not agree with you when you do not add value to her or the school. Worse still, if you are frequently being pushed to achieve goals and deadlines.

I know a few school owners may take their disappointment to an extreme but I will simply advise you as a teacher to keep improving on yourself and to leave the school with notice if you feel there are no opportunities for growth in your current school.

You know, one may need to remove the log of wood from his eyes before he can remove the plank from another's eye. I feel quite uncomfortable when teachers use words like 'greedy' for school owners.

The school owner is an edupreneur. She has invested resources and capital to set up that school. When you see school fees coming in, all you consider is profit. The school owner on the other hand, calculates bills, salaries, maintenance, govt. taxes and levies, rent, school materials, advert, school activities, family and personal expenses e.t.c.

I believe that school owners should try to pay staff better as much as they can afford but it is greedy of any staff to think that they should be paid x money because they have 20 students in class. You need to think like an entrepreneur and to empathize with your school owner. School business just like any other business in Nigeria is challenging.

So please from the point of entry into that school, turn around and walk away if you are not happy with the pay package. Do not get into the school to grow bitter and grumpy. Save yourself and the school such stress.
