Farida Yahya: Ready To Launch That Online Business? Take My Simple Idea Verification Test

The COVID-19 crisis has brought a change in the economic landscape. Like you, a lot of people are thinking of either starting a new business online or pivoting from what they used to do.
Do you have a great idea and want to become a business owner in these times? Just before you dive into it, are you sure that your idea is viable in the market? Before investing in a new business, the most important step to take is to assess your idea’s viability.
From my experience, these are just markers and not the general rules. Today, I’ve compiled a list of idea verification questions you must ask yourself to assess your business’ chances of success.
 
Have you done a full self-analysis?
 
Market research doesn’t have much significance if you are not well equipped to meet the demand of the market. This is why self-analysis is important. The questions you should ask must help you dig deeper than the surface and help you develop a plan to build your business as a solution to your target customer’s pain point. Additionally, asking these questions and getting the answers to them would help lay your business foundation.
Below are the examples of questions you should ask yourself before you start talking to others about your business:
Why do I want to start a business?
What problem does my business solve?
Where will I find my target customers?
How do I identify them online?
What digital skills do I have?
What are my business goals?
One go-to method I use and recommend is to write down the answers in a book or journal. This will help solidify your thoughts and serve as blueprints for laying the foundation of your business.
Do You Know Your Competitors?
Every business has competitors, irrespective of whether they are direct or indirect. There are people and brands who have built a strong digital presence long before this crisis, so naturally, customers will trust them.
Identifying your competitors would help you know what they are doing and how your business can stand out from the crowd. Looking at what other businesses in your niche or industry are doing will give you valuable insights into how to run your proposed business without suffering from losses.
A smart business owner should understand other businesses’ strategies and not get too caught up in what its competitors are doing. 
Have You Evaluated Your Social Capital?
I’m sure that we all heard the saying, “It takes money to make money”. While the phrase might sound cliché, its meaning still holds till today. But online, social capital built from trust and proof are the currency you will need to build a successful digital brand.
Most times, you’ll use a combination of your personal stories and collaborations with trusted brands to convince customers to buy from you. You must create a digital sales funnel that highlights how the money will be spent and marketing strategies for generating revenue, despite the current times.
Have You Analysed the Pulse of the Market?
One of the best ways to validate your business idea is via your target market. How do you achieve this? The first step is to define or identify your target market. Your target market are people who will be interested in what you have to sell.  After identifying them, the next step is to conduct effective market analysis on a small group (also known as a focus group).
Check out some of the ways you can test your business idea with target customers:
Have a focus group
A focus group consists of a small section of your identified target market that use your products or services and provide feedback. Using focus groups, conducting surveys and interviews show what consumers think about your business idea before you invest in it. 
Ask groups on social media
Thanks to the internet and social media, you can seek validation or get people’s opinion about your business idea. From Facebook  groups to WhatsApp and even Telegram, social media practically puts your target market at your fingertips, you can conduct a survey or run a poll to assess people’s general perceptions and if they think you should do anything differently.
Set up a crowdfunding page
If necessary, crowdfunding pages are also great for determining your business idea’s viability. Crowdfunding websites offer more than just investors. You can also gain valuable reactions, observations, and advice from like-minded individuals. Bonus: You might be lucky to find someone who wants to invest in your idea.
Using small groups to test your business idea determines consumer’s impressions about what you have to sell. If the small market tests are successful, there’s a good possibility that your business idea will be accepted by a larger audience.
How do you really know if your business idea is viable?
Unfortunately, while there’s no one way to determine a business success, careful planning, excellent marketing strategies and enough capital to get the business off the ground would go a long way.
Please note that every startup’s story is different. However, I’d like you to remember this: “If your products or services are high-quality, solves your target market’s problems and reflects your passion, the probability of achieving a profitable business is high.”
One last thing, ask yourself these questions:
Desirability (target market) — will customers want it badly to buy it?
Feasibility — can I build/execute it?
Viability —will the profit I will make from it be greater than the expenditure I used to create or build it?

Your Child’s Academic Mediocrity or Failure Should Not Be Treated as a Stain on Your White!

The video of a man scolding his son for having a poor results went viral on social media, a couple of days ago. In the video, the father can be seen slapping the boy while lamenting on how poor his school result is, while someone, presumably the mother, recorded the video. At the same time, we heard a voice trying to placate the man.

The dad pays $21k USD as tuition fee every month and his son was skipping classes, failed maths & English
He Only passed music pic.twitter.com/h5TU9UBPt5
— JAGS (@EtniesJags) April 23, 2020

According to the image of the results,  the son had failed all his subjects – except Music and Geography and was absent for his Mathematics and English exams – the two ‘most important’ subjects.
There are a few things to note here:
Aside from failing, the boy did not bother to show up for two subjects – and the parents did not notice.
The boy passed music with a distinction.
The boy tried to explain and the father was too angry to listen.
In the midst of it all, the mother deemed it fit to make a video.
It can hurt deeply when parents have huge dreams and certain expectations of their kids and it seems like the kids are not rising up to expectations. But when it comes to education and the academic journey of a child, many factors come to play.
Many parents need to enlighten their children on the value and importance of education. A lot of children just go to school because they are at that phase where kids go to school. Many always pass their exams because that is what is required of them.
It becomes different when you explain to your kids that education is a journey, one that will help them achieve their dreams and future plans. Rather than push your kids to go to school and pass their exams, it is important to educate them on why they are doing what they do. That way, they won’t quickly open their books and pretend to read when they see you coming. You wouldn’t have to force them to study either.
It is also very important, as parents, to monitor your children’s academic progress. Parenting is more than spending huge amounts of money on your kids’ education or paying for textbooks and excursions. It is also about monitoring their assignments, going through their books, checking their grades by subjects, studying with them, having a discussion with their teachers to know how well they are performing in school and also having a discussion with your kids to know whether or not they are struggling with their academics. You should never wait until your kids fail in school before you pay attention to their academics.
What some parents do is that they visit their children’s schools unannounced, meet with their class teachers and ask about the academic performance and general behaviour of the child. That way, they know the child’s strengths and weaknesses and how to help.
If it ever gets to that stage where your child can conveniently skip school or be absent during examinations, then it means you have done a poor job in monitoring your children’s academic progress.
Although many parents want their kids to do well in school, they are yet to familiarise themselves with the academic struggles the child faces. Some of these could be dyslexia, bullying, fear, poor mental health, stress, bad learning environment. Some kids read but do not understand and while some can read to understand, they still find it difficult to express themselves while writing. Some kids have sight and hearing problems but their parents are either too busy, abusive or too careless to notice.
Many parents have beaten and nearly killed their kids because of poor grades without realising that the kid suffers from dyslexia. Also called reading disability, dyslexia affects areas of the brain that process language. Children who have dyslexia usually have trouble learning or learning as fast as other kids.

This was me with my son! It was frustrating, most especially paying so much to give him the best of education & I also allowed others beat him.Today, I regret every of that behaviour. I apologised & sought my son’s forgiveness when he turned 18.It turned out my son is DYSLEXIC https://t.co/nCBZ2GgSJk
— Aisha Yesufu (@AishaYesufu) April 23, 2020

Bullying, fear and poor learning environment also affects kids a lot. Many students are scared of certain teachers and this kills their interest in that subject. It also stunts a child’s learning ability.
It is also very important to create a really good relationship with your kids. Establish an environment where your children can open up to you whenever they are struggling in school or anywhere else. Most kids do not talk about their failures because they are scared of their parents. But at the end of the day, it reflects in their grades.
A lot of people believe that once they pay huge sums of money for their child’s education, the child must pass by fire by force. It doesn’t work that way. It is not rocket science. You have to nurture and ‘water’ your kids brainpower and then watch them produce amazing results. One way to do this is to listen to them. In that video, the child was willing to explain but the father wasn’t ready to listen. That would have been the perfect time to know what the problem truly is. When your kids know that they can talk to you, it boosts their confidence and helps them make good life decisions. If they can’t talk to you, then they’ll seek for solutions elsewhere.
Come to think of it? Why are we seeing this video in the first place?! Why is the mother recording this? Is it to humiliate the child further? Or is it because we now live in a world where we are so quick to whip out our phones and make videos? If your first instinct, when your child fails in school, is to take photos and videos, then you are clearly going a poor job as a mother.
While it is natural to get angry when a child fails, it is very important to realise that a child’s failure in school is also as a result of the parent’s failure in ensuring that the child is academically sound. Both parties have failed.
If the child can pass Music and Geography, such child can also pass other subjects, if given the right encouragement and motivation to keep pushing. This does not automatically mean the child wants to become a musician in future, Music is probably the easiest subject for him, it is, thus, important to find out why other subjects are difficult for him to learn.
At the end of the day, parents should invest better in their children’s education if they want good results. And no, it’s not all about money.
P.S: Failing in school is not the end of the world. The most important thing in life is to keep moving.

Peter Molokwu: Stand Up Tall For You

Standing up for yourself and being decisive is not only the key to success and joy, it’s the key to getting respect from others. Often, we think deferring our wishes benefits a group or makes us more likeable. It’s simply the biggest lie ever.
What is true is that staying quiet, out of the way and deferring to others is a fear-based way to live. You’re staying in the background because you don’t want to feel uncomfortable or make anyone else uncomfortable (I’ve been there before).
When you are too afraid to speak up about what you love, too scared to set boundaries, and too fearful to have decisive opinions, you make little or no impression on others and do an incredible disservice to yourself. This way of living gives you no respect. It does nothing to move your life forward and, perhaps more tragically, it keeps you from genuinely connecting with other people that share your passions. Advocating for what you value helps people see you – the real you – and people are drawn to authenticity.
Practice and learn to stand up for the things you want or need, experience and advocate for them in your everyday life. This requires practice. It’s about building the muscles that support your metaphorical core, support your spiritual spine, when you’d rather crumple up all comfy in the corner of a metaphorical sofa.
You must strengthen your emotional core each day. Make yourself uncomfortable little by little as you stretch outside of your comfort zone. You have to incrementally develop the ability to stand tall, ask for what you need and advocate for what you deserve.
Here’s how to begin:
Every day, for the next 5 days, do one thing that makes you just a little uncomfortable. Things like:
Say No
When someone asks for a personal favor, a quick job outside your schedule or your attendance at some event that’s wasting your time, decline politely. Ensure you don’t apologize and lean into the discomfort that follows.
Speak Up
At some point this week, someone will have a conversation about something you have an opinion about. Express this opinion about what should happen in the project, what you believe about politics, or how Aunt Sally needs to shove it already.
Prioritize You
There are things you value deeply in this world; things you want to do and cultivate. Make space in your life to do them. Whether it’s prioritizing your health or hobbies, or promoting your own. You’re allowed. You deserve it.
Remember Your Why 
You need to remember your why; it’s the reason you’re doing all of this. It’s the reason you jump out of bed every morning excited to smash out the day.
Whenever I’m faced with a decision that requires me to either put myself first or give into temptation, I like to imagine the future.
I imagine myself having already achieved my goals and I ask myself these two questions:
Who’s there? Who are the people that are still in my life? This will tell you a lot about the decisions you need to make.
Each day, take a tiny chance. Calcify your will. Connect genuinely. Stand tall. Be authentic and strong and model life with a backbone. It will benefit you and everyone around you.

TemiO: Before You Complain About Working From Home

Kere oo! E ku ti lockdown o!
Whether your city is on a total lockdown or there is a strict curfew, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone one way or another. This is especially true for the labour market.
Employers who were once averse to their employees working from home have had to (stubbornly) agree to remote working.
To many employees, remote working used to be the grass on the other side that looked greener. Now, it has become the gift that keeps on giving and we seem to have had enough! Who can blame us? Employers have taken this opportunity to request for meetings and reports whenever they feel like and this has made us work round the clock. PHCN operations are skeletal (as per usual), there is a constant struggle for internet bandwidth with tik-tok’ers that are preoccupied with all forms of challenges and for the parents, the children are a lot to handle.
Whilst these challenges are all valid and can make working from home very challenging, let’s not be too quick to forget the struggles we encounter anytime we step out of our house to work.
Traffic
It looks like Lagos workers have forgotten so soon the pepper that Monday morning traffic showed them. You forget that deceptive feeling at the end of a day that makes you feel you are the most hardworking person, meanwhile, it is traffic that has you so fagged out. The kind of traffic that will leave you wishing you had a magic wand or a private jet to wish it all away. Let’s all remember that waking up at 4am or leaving the office at 9pm just to beat traffic is not something to be missed at all!
Sunday Scaries/Monday blues
Anyone else notice that Mondays are not so scary anymore? Sunday nights are also a little bit less depressing without the thought of the horrid Monday morning traffic or the never-ending meetings. The fact that all days are now muddled up into ‘yesterday, today and tomorrow’ also helps.
Fugitive lifestyle
‘Fugitive – a person in hiding’.
Let’s be honest, isn’t that what we all are in the office premises? Sneaking to watch Skinny Girl in Transit using office Wi-Fi or replying that recruiter’s message on LinkedIn. Not forgetting the many times we have snuck out of the office even though it was past official closing hours. Now, there’s no need to quickly close that tab when you see your line manager approach. You are free like a bird!
Leeches (‘a person who sponges on others’)
The gateman at the office that strangely knows when it is salary day, the police man at the roundabout, the office assistant that helps you buy lunch with the expectation of a tip, remember them? On average, at least one of these people will locate you in a week and bore a hole in your pocket. Now, all that you should worry about bleeding you dry is DATA! (seriously, Nigerian network providers, when are you going to be like your mates abroad and #CutDataPrices?)
Remote working is likely to become a key feature of the new world order once the pandemic is over, so we must all adjust accordingly. A recollection of the experiences that are not to be missed in our daily commute to work could make working from home even more pleasurable.

Enioluwa Adeoluwa: This Is What Working From Home Means to the Average Nigerian

With our constant search to stop the spread of COVID-19, social distancing remains the best way to flatten the curve. Globally, there have been over one million confirmed cases of the coronavirus and more than 70,000 reported deaths. And the numbers are still increasing.
With the lockdown in many parts of Nigeria, especially Lagos and Abuja –  Nigeria’s economical and busiest states, more companies have to adopt a work-from-home policy and this is to set to represent a major shift in Nigerian work culture, as it is one that has never been seen before.
There are obvious benefits to working from home, including fostering better work-life balance and easing the toll of long hours in Lagos traffic on workers. But other issues, such as constant electricity, water supply or data prices remain significant barriers to its long-term adoption. With only one week into the lockdown, some Nigerians have turned to social media to complain about what they are going through.
“Working from home is great, I have an in-house office, so it’s been easy. But I am frustrated, I can’t step out of the house, I can’t see friends and close ones, I can’t go out to eat,” said Media personality and influencer, Pamilerin Adegoke.
For many Nigerian employees, their offices remain one of the best places where electricity is guaranteed and where personal devices, including power banks and rechargeable fans, are often charged. Working remotely likely means incurring additional costs of powering generators. Then there’s also the problem of internet access costs.
“I hate it, I hate the idea of working from home, there is hardly electricity but the frustration of that is nothing compared to how much I spend on data and internet services,” says Radio and T.V presenter, Desmond Ekunwe.
Even beyond electricity and internet services, traditional Nigerian companies will also have to revise aspects of their organizational culture to embrace remote work than actual productivity. During this period, the executive of Lagos State has recorded its first-ever virtual meeting. The state’s official Twitter page tweeted “LASG says 14-day restriction announced by President Muhammadu Buhari will not affect governance in the State… As members of Lagos State EXCO holds a first-ever virtual meeting in the history of governance in the state”.
Attempting to find similar workarounds amid the uncertainty may soon become a necessity for even more companies. Remote work seems like a logical precaution for many companies that employ people in the digital economy, especially the new tech companies in the state. Still, it is not easy for many. Filmmaker and AMVCA winner, Bola Enigma, says “I have been often distracted and procrastinating, this is less productive and very slow.” Nevertheless, companies are enabling work-from-home structures to keep business running and help employees follow social distancing guidelines.
If you are working from home, here are some tips to help:
Keep it professional
Even if you don’t have a dedicated office, try to set up a work-space and make it off-limits to the rest of your household while you’re working.
Be responsive
Get in the habit of sending a prompt reply whenever you get an email, even if it’s just to say, “Got it,” or, “I’ll get back to you by noon”. Do your best to be available for conference calls or other collaborations, even if you don’t have strict work hours.
Set specific touch-points with your team
It’s smart to set a time each day/week for regular check-ins with your manager and/or your colleagues. That will not only help you stay accountable, but it will also remind your office counterparts that you’re still an important part of the team
Structure your day like you would in the office.
With the new enacted strict policies for people to remain at home during the coronavirus pandemic, one thing that is definitely certain is that this is a new wave in the country that would shapen the culture of the Nigerian workplace for a very long time. I don’t think we’ll go back to the same way we used to operate.
So, guys, how are you surviving this period?

#BellaNaijaMCM Bryan Mezue of Lifestores Pharmacy is Democratising Healthcare for Africans

For our #BellaNaijaMCM feature this week, we celebrate Bryan Mezue, an angel investor and entrepreneur who’s the co-founder of Lifestores Pharmacy, a chain of disruptive pharmacies focused on delivering low-cost healthcare products and services that empower low and middle-income Nigerians.
In Nigeria, majority of the population see the pharmacy as the first port of call for healthcare services. This is because, as at 2018, health insurance penetration was at 5%. Most people, especially in rural and low-income urban areas do not have access to hospitals and doctors, so the pharmacies are their only hope. The pharmacist has a more elevated role, compared to their counterparts in developed countries. They sometimes perform some of the roles associated with doctors: consultation with an individual; filling of prescription, e.t.c.
Bryan saw this situation and decided to launch Lifestores Pharmacy in 2017 to challenge the scourge of fake medicines, expensive treatments and sub-par customer service so that quality healthcare the norm for all.
Lifestores Pharmacy currently has four stores across Nigeria, and also supports third-party pharmacies with services that helps them manage their operations, track inventory, assist customers/patients with their health-care regimen via an online platform.
Lifestores’ VIVA program is an end-to-end support program for individuals managing chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes.
Prior to founding Lifestores Pharmacy, Bryan founded Banyi Group out of a passion for a more socially responsible form of business and for a paradigm shift in Africa’s development story. Banyi Group’s goal is to bring transformative development and mass job creation to Africa through disruptive innovations.
Before Banyi Group, Bryan was a Harvard Fellow at the Forum for Growth and Innovation, where he collaborated closely with Professor Clay Christensen, the business consultant who developed the theory of “disruptive innovation”, to pioneer research on the relationship between disruptive innovations and economic development.
Bryan is a co-founder and Board Member for WAVE Academies, a vocational education social enterprise focused on addressing youth unemployment by identifying, training and placing underemployed youths in income-transforming jobs.
Bryan received an MBA from Harvard Business School and completed his undergraduate degree in Mathematics, Statistics & Economics from Warwick University.
He’s one of the individuals selected for the inaugural Obama Foundation Leaders: Africa program in 2018.
We celebrate Bryan for his work in improving the health of Nigerians and Africans at large, and for helping to build capacity among Africa’s youth and we’re rooting for him.
