When do you plan to start? Don’t you think that it is now? Seriously, the time is now and only now. It is not easy taking a decision to start a new idea. I just realized that the easiest way to do it is to START NOW.
Check our App of the Day, Music of the Day and Blog Article of the Day on the Tips For Lonely Entrepreneurs section below.
You could be that lonely entrepreneur like me who doesn’t have a boss to boss it on you or a subordinate to answer to your orders. This makes it very difficult for you to take control of what you do. I just decided that I should start now.
Each day, I plan to give you updates on what I have done and what I will do the following day. You can also do so at the comment section of each daily post. Here, we assess what we have actually achieved and what we plan to do the next day.
If you are thinking like me, and you are that lonely entrepreneur, then this will help us to evaluate ourselves together. Sharing such ideas may also be a means to sell your products or services through your ideas. Anyhow, there could be some checks and balances though :).
As I said above, it is not easy to work alone. No boss to direct or scold you; no one for you to be bossy on (I don’t appreciate bossy bosses – so don’t be one). You start something here and another there and at the end of the day, none is finished. You fail to meet up your own deadline. You don’t meet your own objectives. What a shame?
With this platform, I will be able to share with my audience my plans and daily reports as well as you will also share yours with us on the comment section. Let’s share our challenges, problems and solutions with each other.
Let’s get the ball rolling!

Article of the Day:
Random Thoughts: Why Many African Companies Do Not Survive Their Founders and CEOs, by Arrey Echi.
This article touches one of the most important things young entrepreneurs of today have to put in mind – building business that outlive their stay on earth. The second point in this article got me thinking – “Our [penchant] at hoarding knowledge”. One great example of such can be seen in African traditional medicine. When we were growing up, we saw great herbalist who had concoctions that could cure many diseases when used rightly. Most of them died not sharing the knowledge with the younger generation. We can see the effects of such acts today…the proliferation of fake herbalists that mix western medicine with herbs and sell to people.
My grandmother could cure wiglow effectively. But she died without sharing that knowledge with anyone because of the simple reason that the law was for her to share it only with her daughter. Her only daughter died before her.
Just imagine how such knowledge would have been very helpful to us now. We are now dependent on Western and Asian medicine which drains thousands of dollars from our pockets yearly. If I can remember very well, these herbalist cured their patients for little or nothing.
