Key activities in my week – 26th of September to 2nd of October .
Went for an early Sunday service. I split my time in two, spent the first service in the adult church and the second service in the teens church. We returned home after the second service, rested and spent some time reviewing my work and life also read, chatted, prayed and meditated. Got involved with the house fellowship meeting in the evening. Spent quality after evening fellowship time in meetings with friends and ministry partners. Guests left my house after 11pm, had a late night, and then resumed the regulars.
Of course it was a Dollar Green Monday, with Avenues to Wealth/ Holidays and Cash, Mondays are green. Developed an update for Avenues to Wealth members, had a burning theme in my heart on – “it’s not all about you”. Realized the value of having someone else to help, and the effect it has on minimizing one’s personal problems. Commenced with negotiations with company interested in online promotions of about to be launched product. Had the regular Monday one to one meetings, read, meditated, prayed… also with my wife. Had a late evening out. A friend and distributor had scheduled a meeting with Rev. Victor Adeyemi on Avenues to Wealth. I was in his house till very late. Got home around 11pm. Spent quality time doing my regulars till usually 2am. Started creating awareness for the charity event slated for Friday.
It’s tagged Avenues to Wealth/H&C day. Had to do school runs in the morning (been doing that for a while now). Resumed in the office to get some work done, A2W meetings take from 11am to 3pm of my time- meeting and meeting after meeting. Rushed off for school runs, and continued work at home. Stayed late doing the regulars – the regulars is spending time with H&C leadership on new updates, aligning with direction for the company, creatives on new ideas, sorting back log on emails and reading)
I call it Apapa day! I spent a great part of the day in Apapa with some colleagues and the Apapa Local Government Chairman and his team. We attended a flag off with him of a Flour Mills/Apapa LGA project. We also spent quality time brainstorming with him, on Apapa and how to get more done. I was quite impressed, in my estimation he had done more than 70% of the Governors. 31 roads in 21 months, new medical hospitals, community projects, e.t.c. Was there till 5pm. Commenced the online A2W meeting online at 5pm, did it mobile as I headed for Ikeja. It was a fulfilling day, started getting relevance in the Government mountain, a seriously desired mountain.
This is my typical office work day. Met with a few distributors, a few suppliers, a few partners e.t.c. It was a hectic and long day in the office. Had the kids join me in the office from school, and we headed home together at the close of the day. Delegated the leadership of the Charity event for the Independence day activity to a worthy leader – Olaolu Daramola. Got home, to the regulars 🙂
It was two things. Charity day, and then My son – Ara’s Birthday. It was a full day for me. We (My family and Avenues to Wealth distributors and friends) spent quality time with the Children at the orphanages, the events took from 9am till getting back home at 6pm. We played, danced and celebrated with the children in Little Saints Orphanage, and A2W (company and distributors) offered to tile their floors, paint their hall and refurbish the kitchen. I was very happy at how popular I was at the orphanages, the children could remember my name… I had been there often. At the Heart of Gold Hospices, we were moved to tears with compassion. 90% of the children had disabilities, and the caregivers gave them attention 24/7. Most of the children where on their backs in the cots all day! We were able to identify a child to support, Joshua Solomon (actually solomon, MTN has Joshua). He needed cosmetic surgery for a major bilateral cleft lip and palate challenge, by God’s grace we are going to take him and a nurse to India for surgery.
Dashed down to Abeokuta in the early hours of the day for a seminar. Had a great time, it’s been long I presented the A2W opportunity to prospects :). Spent quality time with them, and headed back to lagos for 4pm just in time for meeting with people who had deals on the privilege pack. Finished quite late, and am currently in my car heading home. Decided to respond to all those who volunteered to be involved with creating a child abuse movement. People who responded to the post – “He got away with it”. The week is about to end. I’m heading home for the regulars… sure there are items that are not in the regular that could also have their own title of regular. Below is the mail I sent to respondents. If you are interested you can respond as well.
You are getting this mail because when I wrote the article – “He got away with it”, you responded and indicated a willingness to be involved.
I am wrong in making this assumption, please feel free to ignore this email. If however you are interested in deliberate steps we are taking to put an end to this evil, then contact praise via email or his phone number, to request to be carried along with the details of our first meeting as a group.
It may shock you, but some NGOs working on this are more money driven than value driven. What we want to put up is a system capable of putting an end to this scourge. Being a part of this will involve commitment, time, money, resources, relationships e.t.c. Our vision is to save our society, if we fail, we would have made a lot of difference in the lives of hundreds of children, if we succeed, we can indeed count millions.
Since having these thoughts on our minds, God has opened some doors to us already. Some government agencies have called us and given us a mandate to support them while they take the costs. We know more doors will open when we commence! Don’t miss out on the first meeting. Dial Praise or mail him today!
