While we are on the topic of exceptional bloggers in the Africa Enterprising Blog Network, I wanted to point out another top notch blog. We’re talking about Adeolu Akinyemi , who blogs from Nigeria. Adeolu is one of the first Africa bloggers that I really started noticing during my early blogging days. I don’t think that I’ve seen any one blogger show more growth within a short span of time as he has. When I started reading his blog in November of 2006, I would normally see about 15 to 16 comments per post and now they have mushroomed to an average of perhaps between 55 to 70 comments per post.
In this post he teaches us about Robert Kiyosaki, the author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad“. For anyone that has not already had a chance to give “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” a good read, I would highly recommend opening it’s covers. It provides some very unconventional, but useful insights into how to become a successful business person. That’s what Mr. Akinyemi’s blog is all about, as well. This post talks about Kiyosaki’s board game called Cashflow 101 which teaches us how to win at the game of entrepreneurship.
Here is a short excerpt of Adeolu’s post, that teaches us how to become financially intelligent business people:
There are two parts to accounting for every penny (kobo), one is done ahead of spending, called budgeting, and the other after spending, called accounting. Budgeting is planning, this is crucial to financial success. The pain of accounting is not absolutely useful on the short term, but on the long run it gives you a clear picture of your priorities.
Something that Adeolu does in this and many of his other posts that shows us how to go above and beyond the call of duty in writing is that he breaks his lessons up into small bite sized pieces that are easy to digest. And then, to top it off he invites his readers to a fun-filled evening of playing the game Cashflow 101.
So when you get a chance, definitely get over there and check this post out!This post was sponsored by:
