#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday- Don’t Disrespect Junior Workers


#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday

Another Monday presents itself before us and the sons of men would go out this week working hard with their hands as God blesses the work of their hands (Deuteronomy 28:12).

#BGIM – Don’t Disrespect Junior Workers

Yes. Don’t disrespect junior workers. I mean you have to respect junior employees and workers if you want to GROW this year and beyond.

The junior workers you see today will be the senior workers tomorrow: I mean in the not-too-distant or immediate future where they will be in that position of influence to determine the progress or retrogression of your company, goods or services. Even if in the far future, such a person will definitely have a say one day on your company, your proposal, your funding or application. Even now, they have a say.

A lady who went for an interview passed coming out tops. After the whole process, the managing director asked the receptionist how she saw that particular lady and the other interviewees. The receptionist responded that “Oh, that lady, hmmm. When she came, she didn’t greet anybody here. All she did was ask where is the boardroom and she moved there”.

The managing director upon receiving this response said that such a lady will not fit within the system here so the employment be passed to the second in line, who had respect for other junior workers in that company during the interview.

DO YOU HAVE RESPECT for Junior Workers?

You might even be their superior at work. But it’s still important you respect junior workers.

#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday- BUILD A Connection with Them

Another Monday is before us and workers are returning to work to toil with their hands as they wait on the Almighty God to surely bless them through the work of their hands (Deuteronomy 28:12)


In this year of Growth as dubbed by #BGIM in the New Year’s Edition, one way we can surely grow our businesses is to build a connection with our clients or patrons.

I say it again, if we want to GROW in 2018, we need to build a connection with our customers. Why did I say it again? And how can we build connections with them?

You are not the only one providing that service or producing that products or goods in your country. You are not the only seeking for that sponsorship or investment from that funding organisation. You are not the only one making an advert of that goods or service you provide? Other people are doing same, so why should people patronize yours?

People would because you built a good connection with them. The connection in this case is a common ground of interest that would make the person feel that this product is one of our own. It might be

a common language (be it high standard English, average English, pidgin English, Twi, Ga, Ewe or any indigenous language)

-a catch phrase that people easily associate with (an example is Guiness’ MADE OF BLACK phrase)

-a slogan or name everyone likes (Happy Man, Sweet Mother)

-a geographical area (all patrons in Accra, all clients in Kumasi, Mumbai, New York or Johannesburg)

-an association (Builders Association, Artisans Association, Old Students Association)

Anything that can make you connect with that person is an advantage. Sometimes even your own name can help.

Do you know the similarity of your name to someone’s mother and father’s name can make a breakthrough for you? Much less their daughter or son’s name.

Build A Connection With Them
#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday

Have A Blessed Working Week whilst Building Connections with them all.

#BGIM: Bless God It’s Monday- No Freebies to Family and Friends This Year


#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday
No Freebies To Family and Friends This Year

Another Monday is before us and we bless God for this working week because we know that the Almighty God would Himself bless us through the work of our hands (Deuteronomy 28:12)

BGIM- NO FREEBIES to Family & Friends This Year

Yes!!! I said that. No freebies to family and friends this year. You might say I am not caring but #BGIM says that the constant, continuous and consistent freebies to family and friends is what is making your business not seeing the economic growth, profits and expansion.

Friends and family (F &F) are surely a backbone that every business relies on cos to have a safe mind to work hard, we need a safe mind socially. Hence, we all need our family and friends. But they playing vital roles in our lives, doesn’t mean they should get free things from our business or work to the detriment of our business.

A mother has a provision store. When her children come from school, each child picks any drink and biscuit of her choice, when her friends visit her at the shop, anything her friends buy she says they should take it for free not knowing that it is her business capital that she is losing. At the end of the day or week, when she balances her books, she would realise that she is around the same place she was the previous day, week or month with maybe marginal increases at times. Even in certain cases, the books show downward movement.

It is not that she is not supposed to give her children food (ie biscuits and drinks) as a mother after school, but rather because she doesn’t track how much is spent on that. If she is able to track it, she can control it so that the business does not retrogress but rather progresses.

She can make a fixed amount of things her children can take after school say GH¢ 3 and make sure, no child spends beyond that amount whilst keeping that as a record in her expenses book. Or she can say that when each child takes an item, he/she comes to show it to Mummy to record it in her book otherwise no more taking from the shop. And her kids would surely do so anytime they take. There are many many ways but I just love one way.

My Madam at school for whom I sell sachet water on her behalf to students pays anytime she herself takes from the ice chest. Woooowww!!! The owner of the business paying her for own service received.
Think about it.

#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday

Have a Blessed Week and Remember NO MORE Freebies to F &F in 2018.

#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday- MOTIVATE YOURSELF This Year


#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday

#BGIM returns this working Monday. Another Monday is before us and the sons of God are expected to work diligently with their hands as the Almighty God will bless them through it. (Deuteronomy 28:12)


Motivation is key to ensuring that our desire to grow in this year 2018 would be fulfilled. (Refer to last week’s #BGIM on WRITE_S’ blog). Do you want to see improvement and strides in your life and business this year? Then motivate yourself this year.

The Good Books says in 1 Samuel 30:6 that “And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.” (ESV)

Some versions say David encouraged himself in the Lord. As we plan to achieve great things in this year, where we would grow in various aspects of our lives, we surely would meet challenges and obstacles. And these challenges most times would discourage us but we surely would need motivation to keep our drive, zeal and desire to achieve our projections and targets for this year on.

Some people underlook motivation especially motivational speakers thinking they do nothing meaningful to us. You know motivation is not what would make you achieve it but motivation is what would strengthen your resolve to do it no matter what: whether in good times or bad times.

That’s why it’s said that Motivation is like bathing, we need it everyday.

So today, #BGIM urges us all to get some motivation around. Be it a movie, a book, a song, a friend, a quote or even a picture. Visit it regularly and frequently. And I tell you: YOU WILL BE POISED for ACTION this year. And action will end in Success and Greatness in 2018.

#BGIM- Bless God It’s Monday


#BGIM on New Year’s Day: GROW!!!


#BGIM on New Year’s Day.

HURRAY!!! It’s 2018. A new year is before us and #BGIM (Bless God It’s Monday) continues.


It’s a New Year and in this new year 2018, #BGIM beseeches everyone to grow. Not the natural growth in age which happens to everyone but rather a conscious growth in every aspect our lives.

Grow in your financial life.
Grow in your academic life.
Grow in your family life.
Grow in your spiritual life.
Grow in your social life.
Grow in your marital life.
Grow in your work life.
Just grow!!!
Grow, Grow, Grow!!!

Aside every other thing that would happen to you this year make sure that you grow cos nature detests stagnation.

It’s said that even if you are on the right path and you don’t move, you will be crushed by those who are moving forward.

So please grow and let’s move forward in this year either stepwise or in leaps and bounds. The most important thing is let’s grow.

Look around and you will see companies, institutions, individuals growing every year reaping great profits whilst they chalk success here and there.

So when would you also grow? Is it in 2018?

#BGIM- Bless God It’s Monday

Happy New Year and all the best in 2018 as WE ALL GROW.
