          Oh sorry to hear you once lost a loved one…… a pain that words can not express! May God help us oooo. As regards the tool, by all means let me in on it and we will see what we can do. I already work with a lot of SMEs and if it helps then dem must hear :) Bless you!

    Thanks for sharing. I like the way you have also listed the action plans to prevent failures in the highlighted areas in the future. We all fail, but must learn from our failures, as a someone put it we fail forward. Well done sir.

      I agree with you there, we all fail one way or the order even though many of us refuse to admit this – it is just a part of life. I just thought about sharing these failures to help someone out there who maybe feeling helpless because failing forward is what makes all the difference. What is most important is that we learn from our experiences. By the way Sade, I love your website :) you need to find more “unromantic” guys like moi and help us redeem our image. lol

          Seriously speaking there are numerous men like yours truly – when was the last time I bought my wife a gift? The most I do is give her the cash and I understand that most women love it when when their guys buy them gifts. I can bet 2 (if not 4) out of every 5 guys are like me, so you need to get to us :) Make us more romantic :) show us a way of having surprise gifts delivered to our spouses. Hmmmnnnnn! Isn’t this a great way to start the new year, top quality advice straight from the heart. At CFA Leverage we committed to helping you implement these ideas too :)

      Hey Congratulations on your NYSC :) I did mine over a decade ago (getting too old). Thank you for liking the posts. As for advice, I have many of them here but stay close as I am announcing something that will be of great help. I does not matter where you are now, what is most important is the vision of where you are going. Cheers!

    I’m thrilled to see you doing so well and adding people to your team! In spite of failures, missed opportunities, and yes, just busyness at times, if we’re just willing to learn from them and continue to persevere, success will come. Blessings and the best to you in the year ahead!
