4 Signs A Business Venture Is Going Nowhere

In today’s business environment, there are many business ventures to invest in. For this reason, it is important to be particular about the one you choose invest in to avoid devastating losses.

Jumia Travel shares 4 signs a business venture is going nowhere.

Lack of Focus
This is especially the case with start-ups. If a business venture is focused on one thing this month, then next month the focus has changed again to something else, and it’s the same a month or two after that, it’s a sign you need to take note of. Weak and inconsistent focus is one of the number one business killers, and any business without a focus or with one that keeps changing or expanding is a venture you need to careful with.

6 Ways To Protect Elders From Scams

Elders are very much vulnerable to financial and internet fraud because of their advanced age. As a result, some rogues take advantage of this to defraud them. They may not even be aware of this. You will simply notice that your aged mum or dad keep asking for money every week. Hence, it is very important for you to shield or protect them from fraud.

Jumia Travel shares ways to do this.

Limit marketing calls
Since elders are always at home, they are more susceptible to scammers who might target their phones. You can block spam calls and messages by using Truecaller.

Know their online profile
The internet is a minefield of information. You will know everything about an individual with the click of a button. So, take time out to check out their online profile so that you can remove any information hackers and scammers can use to defraud your parents.

Scrutinise their bank statement
Since they aged, you should have access to their bank statement. Hence, from time to time, request for their f…

Don’t Listen To Yourself – Talk To Yourself

We are deeply influenced by the world around us. Daily we’re bombarded with a thousand images – from the news we watch, to the sermons we hear, to the people we meet. Our affections, attitudes, moods, beliefs, and, ultimately, our actions are swayed, cemented, and interpreted by the voices we listen to.

Yet no voice is so influential in a person’s life as their own.

Paul David Tripp makes this point in his daily gospel devotional, New Morning Mercies, when he writes, “No one is more influential in your life than you are, because no one talks to you more than you do. We never stop talking to ourselves….The things you say to you about you, God, and life are profoundly important because they form and shape the way you then respond to the things that God has put on your plate.”

It’s true. Whether we realize it or not, we are in constant communication with ourselves – commenting internally on everything we encounter. We are dictating the narrative we believe based on our interpretation of th…

Police Say Venus Williams Did Not Break the Law in Fatal Car Crash

In the video, you can see Williams' 2010 Toyota Sequoia entering the intersection, under a green light. In the upper part of the video, she pauses briefly in the middle of the intersection, before continuing. That's when her car was struck by Hyundai driven by Linda Barson, whose 78-year-old husband, Jerome, later died of his injuries. Before they saw the new evidence, police said Williams was "at fault for violating the right of way."

But in light of the footage, the police department released a statement exonerating Williams, saying, "the vehicle driven by Venus Williams lawfully entered the intersection on a circular green traffic signal, and attempted to travel north through the intersection to Ballenisles Drive."

The police said a car entered the intersection in front of Williams and made a left turn, causing her to stop advancing through the intersection to avoid a collision. The crash occurred when Williams started to legally proceed.

On July 2, 2017, Ms. Atinuke Ogunsalu of Queensway Restaurant & Catering in Maryland, US, became the winner of the first ever Jollof Hackathon presented by I/O Spaces during Jollof Festival In Washington DC.

 The event was organized by Afropolitan Insights.

Ms. Ogunsalu put skeptics to shame with her win and proved to all that Nigerians can indeed cook Jollof when she secured her country the win at the event.

 Her competitors at the event were Cameroon, Ghana, and Sierra Leone.

The winning chef arrived at the event venue; 1630 19th Street in North West of Washington DC, with high hopes despite heavy opposition fueled by the popular assertion at that Nigeria Jollof, was indeed nothing to write home about.

A good number of the over 600 people that attended the #JollofFestival had high expectations of team Ghana Jollof to win, unfortunately, Ghana sold out quickly and, though they had called for backup it never arrived on time so they were beaten by the clock.

Congrats Nigerian Jollof!

Nigerian Woman Uloma Curry- Walker Get Guilty Verdict For Killing Husband To Get His Insurance Money..

A newlywed accused of soliciting her firefighter husband's killing to collect $100,000 in insurance money has been convicted of aggravated murder in a scheme that was flawed from the start: His ex-wife was still the beneficiary of his policy.

Uloma Curry-Walker, 45, could receive life in prison without parole for the November 2013 slaying of William Walker, whom she had married just four months earlier. Jurors deliberated for less than two hours before coming back with the verdict Friday

Prosecutors said Curry-Walker was nearing financial ruin after running up tens of thousands of dollars in debt when she asked her then-17-year-old daughter and the daughter's boyfriend to find someone to kill her husband so she could collect the insurance money.

But a police investigation found that Curry-Walker's plan had a glaring problem from the outset. Her husband had not yet changed the beneficiary on the insurance policy from his ex-wife's name to Curry-Walker's when he was kil…
