Ten (10) Wealth💵 lessons from Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo at BRG excellence conference.
1.Start Early: I built my first house at age 27 (You are not too young to succeed).
2.Have foresight, Quality not Quantity: Years ago, I rejected a plot of land at Banana island at N42M for hectares at Ibeju Lekki, now Ikoyi land is worth N2B.
3.Be a Pathfinder: Mowe was a bush and had about five landlords years back when I bought plots of land there. Today it’s a booming town.
4.Nigeria is fertile: I’ve lived abroad for decades and I can say the best you can achieve is medium/second class. Stay back and grow exponentially.
5.Exponential growth is the person you are/ become not achievement. Build yourself and you will attract success.
6.A product and A problem: You need a product (an idea💡) and you solve a problem. These are the two criteria for wealth.Facebook is an idea.
7.Sell Benefits/Value,not product: Clients want to know how useful and important your product(real estate) can improve or change their life and finance not how beautiful the house is.
8.Be professional: I watch YouTube and I see unprofessionalism in some adverts. Language;Don’t call viewers “guys”. Dress well,sell benefits and value.
9.High Value: The type of problem you solve is what determines you level of income. Real estate is a high value market/industry.
10.Strive to be first: Never think average or mediocre,think excellence and global.
