Dear Leader,

I don’t know if you will believe this but examine yourself to know if it’s True or Not.

Research says that 99% of Nigerian businessmen don’t finish a single business book per year.

If you doubt it, look around the businessmen around you and ask of the business books they have finished this year.

No wonder Warren Buffet and Bill Gates were asked, “If they could have any superpower, what would it be?” Their answers kept me thinking. They answered “Reading Faster” There are some superpowers about reading.

Reading good business books is the foundation of successful businessmen, and they have this habit in common as it has helped in sustaining their wealth.

Being a reader can benefit business owners in a number of ways. Reading can help business owners stay informed about industry developments, stay up to date on new technologies and strategies, and gain insights into consumer behavior and trends.

Additionally, reading can help business owners develop their leadership and management skills, as well as improve their ability to communicate and connect with employees, partners, and customers.

Reading also helps business owners by expanding their vocabulary, expanding their knowledge of other culture and help them become more effective in communication across various language barriers. And Lastly, reading can also be a great way for business owners to relax and recharge, which can help them stay focused and motivated.

Now you are wishing to be mentored by Dangote or Otedola, Please, go and get their books. You want to get wealthy and you never read wealthymen books. Consider virtual mentors through books please.

Let me get to my reading room now and read the ones that will answer business questions; I never knew they existed.
