HUMBLE BEGINNINGS| See Where Billionaires Dangote, Mike Adenuga And Others Started From


We are presently in a world where the youths are money oriented without any plans or visions of making such wealth. The results are not far-fetched ---The high rate of online fraud is not something to joke with. Every young person wants to own a Benz and other expensive cars, flaunt the latest fashion wears and designers. But little have they forgotten the original and righteous path to wealth. HARDWORK!!

I know some of you will disagree with me that smart work pays better than hardwork. Let me say this, the concept of the smart work promoted the idea of get-rich-quick notion into the minds of our youths.

See how some Nigerian billionaires made their wealth;

1. Femi Otedola - from hawking diesel all over Nigeria with the famed Zenon branded tankers, to owning multinational oil company.
2. Dangote - from commodity trading with money borrowed from his maternal Uncle
3. Tony Elumelu - from mere banking officer to becoming MD of STB and later UBA
4. Mike Adenuga - from driving taxi as a University student in the US to hitting his first major milestone importing & distributing lace material at age 26
5. Subomi Balogun - started as a Banker after studying law...failed once in marriage, rose to become MD of a bank and later founded his own bank, the first generation merchant bank in Nigeria that later metamorphosed into the FCMB group.
6. Oba Otudeko - the Honeywell man started as a banker. He was a banker for 23 years. Retired in 1983, from his savings and borrowed money, he started business grew Honeywell to one of the foremost industrial conglomerate in Africa.
All these folks never became a billionaire overnight. The source of their money can only be traced to one thing — HARDWORK. Don't be deceived by those people that became rich overnight.

Truly, hardwork pays.
