Ghanaian delicacy

Roasted plantain is a Ghanaian delicacy. Now, as the name suggests, its made out of neatly roasted ripped plantain and served with roasted groundnut as well. This is one of the cheapest, healthiest and most handy foods one can think of on a busy day. It is as well sold under locally manufactured tents by the roadside; hence the label: “the lay man’s food”. This picture depicts a typical joint to get your share. But hey, what’s unique and funny about this particular joint? Someone please tell me. The inscription? Maybe my guess could be right. I just couldn’t hide the expression on my face when I saw this seller going the extra mile to advertise her food which is hardly done. More grease.
But on the other hand, I couldn’t also stop imagining how many of us will be willing to serve roasted plantain on our wedding days. Maybe I should take pioneering role.

Want to succeed? Get used to failure

Stop thinking so much–you’re just procrastinating, says Jessica Herrin, founder of and Stella and Dot.

You have to fail your way to success. In entrepreneurship, “there is no easy. There is no shortcut. Never,” said Jessica Herrin, founder of jewelry company Stella and Dot, speaking at the Women Entrepreneurs Rock the World Conference in New York on Thursday.

Herrin, who was named female entrepreneur of the year by Savor the Success, the organization responsible for organizing the conference, told the 500 women in attendance that if starting a company was easy, it wouldn’t be as fulfilling and anyone could do it.

“You are not supposed to pursue something that’s supposed to fall into place over night. If there weren’t hard parts, there would be no value to creating. You have to fail more often if you are going to be successful,” said Herrin, adding that entrepreneurs must fail their way to success through effort and passion.

That means conquering your fears–fears that often manifest in the form of obsessive thinking and planning. In order to really launch a business, entrepreneurs must stop over thinking their ideas and business plans and rather do business, even if it means failing and getting up in the process.

“It’s the doing that makes the business, not the contemplating, the fighting, the thinking, the wondering. Do more. Think less. Not because you don’t think, but because the doing really outweighs it,” Herrin told the audience.

“You can waste a tremendous amount of time doing things that are superfluous to success. That is not business building, that is procrastination, because you are afraid to go do what really matters. How do you get started? Go sell something. Go market something.”
Instead of focusing energy on the obstacles such as raising money and increasing sales, entrepreneurs should focus on how amazing it will be once they scale the obstacles. The key is to avoid becoming jaded, insisted Herrin.

“I will always make sure that life never makes me too jaded, too tired to try,” she said.

-To create an effective corporate identity, you should decide on a central purpose and strategy (a vision and mission),
  as well as the image you want to convey.

-If your budget allows, enlist the services of a designer or consultant to create an identity.

-Get the opinions of trusted outsiders before finalising a new logo.

-Having settled on an identity, ensure that the identity is consistent in all of your communication media.
