Everyone that succeeds at a task, regardless of what it is, does so with help from others. Interestingly, practically everyone that has ever succeeded on a massive scale has done so with help from a great team. In other words, it’s not exactly enough to just have a team. To succeed exceptionally, one must have a team that works in harmony and synchrony. This is the essence of taking time to build team spirit; to produce harmony and willing collaboration. The truth is that a team that works in such a way has the capacity to accomplish anything.
In December 1996, Kofi Annan was appointed Secretary General of the United Nations, an intergovernmental organization tasked with maintaining world peace. His appointment came at a time when regional wars, coup d’états, and genocides were rampant around the world. Additionally, his appointment was a first for several reasons, including that he was the first African to head the organization. During his two-term tenure, Kofi Annan was able to revamp UN bureaucracy, combat HIV/AIDS and mediate multiple regional wars.
What does it take for one to build a wildly successful business? How do you build a company that hires 10,000 employees in several countries around the world? Well, when one thinks of successful businesses, one usually thinks of companies like Microsoft, Apple, Google, or Amazon. However, impressive as these companies are, none of them started life as the multinational corporations they are today. Rather, they started small, kept innovating, and grew into the titans they are today over time. That being said, the question of how to build a successful business is one that needs to be answered.
After the year we’ve had, most business readily acknowledge that having an online presence of some sort is important. This is because while many businesses had to stop working due to covid-19 restrictions, those with websites didn’t need to. This led to increased income and market share for some during those difficult times. However, did everyone with a website enjoy increased sales and market share? Certainly not. For example, if your website was not built to handle ecommerce sales and contact requests, owning it wouldn’t have helped. In such a case, you would have needed to perform a website redesign or hire someone to do it.
Achieving success in business is a tremendous task that is rarely achieved by mistake. Rather, it is an intentional process that involves careful planning, hard work, and strategy among other things. However, a good number of entrepreneurs just don’t know how to achieve such success.

Someone once said that fathers are like the sun; important but barely noticed until they go missing. Much like the sun, fathers provide warmth, vision, protection, and other resources for their family day in, day out. Sadly though, they are rarely ever celebrated as much as they should.

While this singular annual appreciation day is hardly enough, it does give us a chance to express our gratitude. With this year’s Father’s Day just around the corner, we wanted to share some heartwarming quotes about fatherhood with you.
Perhaps one of the best things about life is the fact that anyone can achieve success, if they know how. And while luck, opportunity, and risk-taking do factor into its achievement, it is ultimately decided by specific rules of success. To put it differently, success is never a mistake but is rather the result of following certain principles of life. Furthermore, we could say that one’s measure of success depends on how well those rules are followed. However, how can one ever achieve success if those success rules are not known to begin with? The truth is that most people fail, not because they are failures, but because they don’t know how to succeed.
