Warning! I strongly suggest that you read this book with an open mind because I'll be sharing secrets most men don't want you to know, especially the 'players' among them. There's a lot of uncommon sense and seduction (yeah, I said it) required to get your man. Remember, this book focuses on moving you out of the 'friend zone' where you probably have been relegated to for a while, to the 'fiancée zone', which should lead to marriage, if you do your homework well enough. The techniques in this book do NOT promote manipulation as they do POSITIONING! If you're not in the right position at the right place and time, you're gonna miss out and some girl somewhere is going to reap where you've so painstakingly sown. I'm also not so concerned about what your religious or faith paradigm is right now, as I'm not trying to be your Pastor, but just a friend telling you the cold hard truth, trying to steer you in the right direction. Don't forget that only two women - Ruth and Esther - have their names as books of the Bible. These women learnt the secret art of positioning that was required to get the men they wanted. You should too. Nuff said. Let's get this show on the road!
As you can tell from the title, this book is about how a two-time College Dropout became a Corporate Sellout; all in five years. It’s my life story and it’s all true. Don’t get me wrong, the title doesn’t suggest that dropping out of school guarantees success. Far from it. Our streets are full of those who never ‘dropped in’, those who ‘dropped out’, those who ‘went to college’ and several ‘academic achievers’, who after several years haven’t been able to get meaningful employment or make a success out of their lives. This book is my own little way of getting you to become more introspective; to look inwards at what you have. Everyone has ‘dropped out’ in one area of life or the other. Perhaps you’ve dropped out in your finances, academics or relationships; you need to look beyond your present circumstances to see the ‘sellout’ in you. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Why would you want to spill the beans on your life’s challenges and struggles?” “Aren’t you embarrassed?” “What would people think?” I know. I hear you. But I guess somewhere in my mind and through my experience in sharing what’s become my “test”-imony, I’ve seen countless thousands become inspired and motivated to take a chance on themselves and become the best of themselves. That’s what I hope will happen to you too as you flip through these pages. If that’s your decision at the end of the day, then it would have been worth it. Everyone is born with some form of “disability” or the other. Your disability might be physical, emotional or financial. It could even be as a result of being born ‘on the wrong side of the tracks’. Now, while I don’t make light of your struggles or life’s challenges, the time comes when you’ve got to put your foot down and decide to diss or disregard your disability. Are you going to make excuses for what life should have given you but didn’t or will you decide not to take NO for an answer and grab life by the throat until it answers to you? You decide. As a wise man once said; “it’s not what you don’t have that limits you, it’s what you have, but don’t know how to use”. I’m here to help you discover what you have and help you use it to your advantage. Let’s go. Your journey to fulfillment starts NOW!
"An appropriate alternative title for this Guide would be: What Google won't teach you about NYSC. Kemi Ogunniyi has done a great job putting this together, to help intending returnees beat a smoother path through the NYSC Jungle..." - Tolu Ogunlesi, Journalist and winner of CNN Multichoice African Journalism Prize, 2009 "The book conveys the NYSC Experience from an exceptionally intelligent and entertaining point of view. It's a candid exposition of the National Youth Service programme experience." Dayo Israel, Special Representative to the United Nations Should I participate in the NYSC Scheme? What is it like? How would I register for it? What would I eat at the NYSC Orientation camp? How does the posting system work? Will I get a good girlfriend / boyfriend during the NYSC year? This informative and entertaining guide covers those questions and more, well, except the ‘getting your girlfriend / boyfriend’ part. A lot of Nigerian graduates who have studied abroad are returning home because of tightening immigration laws in their host countries and new opportunities in Nigeria. For most foreign graduates, returning home means participating in the NYSC scheme, if they are to work in the public or private sectors in Nigeria – it is a national requirement! This booklet will guide you throughout your NYSC journey – from the initial decision making to final completion.

Half a loaf & a Bakery was created and published out of necessity. We want to encourage youths who have no loaf today to step out of their comfort zone and aspire. We want to inspire those with half a loaf to make the best use of what they have been given. We want to tell all young people in Nigeria that have their backs pushed against the wall by circumstances beyond their control, to arise, dare to dream bigger and take action towards greatness everyday. We have shared articles on education, entrepreneurship and related issues to stimulate positive enduring actions. We have also shared interview responses from youths who are leading by example. It is our hope that this book will inspire young people to embrace the culture of hands-on experiential learning and be prepared for the labor force, as entrepreneurs or employees before graduation. Owning a bakery and feeding others is within the reach of everyone who believes in the beauty of their dreams.
I have found that a lot of people do not know how to speak with their voice. They do not know what their voices even sound like or what it wants to say. They are not familiar with themselves. This is the core of my article today: Learning to speak with your voice. Written by David E. (CEO of mediaHubng.com)

A few years ago I heard the phrase “Today is the first day of the rest of your life”. I am ever more conscious of the fact that today is the beginning of what time we have left. I have written this book with that persuasion, hoping to help you find a new tempo to your steps. Find ways to anticipate the future, to prepare for that future and to re-engineer that future. How does one avoid obsoletion? How long does it take, standing on this very spot, to become obsolete? Apparently, becoming obsolete is more straightforward than I initially thought. This book tests a few assumptions some of us have held as true about how to make the most of the future. It may provide the keys to reinvent the future. Hope you enjoy it.
