Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone

My vision of a world that works for everyone is a world where we see one another as human beings without the stereotypical labels of tribe, race, gender, color, age, and language.

What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?

I believe the most pressing problem facing the world today is the problem of leadership. I believe leadership is the root cause of the problem facing the world today because everything rises and falls on the shoulders of leaders.

How do you feel these problems could best be solved?

The leadership problem can best be solved by institutionalizing it. For instance, we teach medicine, surgery, engineering, and so on in school because they are important, we also need to study leadership exclusively as courses in our schools starting from elementary schools to the university.


Gifted writer, teacher, and entrepreneur in the mold of America’s Brian Tracy; with special interest in personal and organizational success; described as a strong natural leader, has obsession for excellence. Currently researching on application of business and military principles to grow a Church without compromising the Scriptures.

My personal mission statement is: “To empower and inspire people to attain their highest value.” I believe, as Prof. William James of Harvard university once said, that compared to what we ought to be, we are only half awake. And my personal brand promise is, “You’ll find a piece of me in you.”

I am a marketing, persuasion, and communication aficionado as well as a voracious reader; I consume at least 4 to 5 books every month.

As an entrepreneur, I have been doing business on the Internet since 2003 and have written several ebooks that have sold in Nigeria, US, UK, and Canada. Some of my works include: How to Compose Powerful SMS That Make People Respond!, Excellent Sermons, How to Write Killer CVs That No Employer Dares to Refuse!, and Lifetime Income Home Study Course.

Presently, I run one of Nigeria’s leading bulk SMS service (5star SMS) located at http://www.5starsmsng.com

My role models are: Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Richard Schefren, Mark Joyner, Marshall D. Rosenberg, and Seth Godin.
