Amaka's Love Story


If fate could be lenient with her and her wish is granted, it would be for her to get married before June next year when she turns 38. After all, she has got all that will make a man want to marry her - A nice body, a great career and a good home management skill as a mother to be.



"I am not going to bother myself about anything involving relationships and marriage again, am just tired" She told Jane coldly after her 37th birthday last week.
"Don't say that Amaka", Jane cautions her. 
"Segun is not the only man out there; there are a lot of men who would gladly take you to the altar at the slightest opportunity. Why kill yourself about one Segun of blessed memory" Jane advised. "Oh Jane please, Segun is the seventh man in my life aside Odike. When will that man that will take me to the altar ever show up, when will he? Is it after I’ve dated the whole men in the country? No tell me! She queried as she burst into uncontrollable tears.

She has met Segun at a popular restaurant some nine month ago while attending a birthday party of a former classmate. He was having some drinks with friends when he spotted her from a distance and couldn't stop the chemistry he developed immediately from reacting. 

He got Amaka's number on a platter of gold since she was already looking forward to a man in her life after her relationship with Ijeobi ended three months ago. Their first dinner date was at the Elegushi beach at Lekki. It was a romantic fun fair. Their relationship kick started after then and it was all rosy. They always do things together and as a result he had to invite her to come over and stay with him at his place but she said no, preferring a weekly weekend visits.

The Only Two Kinds of Customers a Salesman Will Ever Meet

Hy everyone. We are almost at the end of the middle month, June. You have of a truth gone through one or two things within this period and I believe they have helped you get a little closer to your dreams.
Today I just want to do a quick post about the Salesman. A salesman sells services and/or goods/products. He expects to make some huge profits. At the center of selling goods and services, lies a man that has the success and downfall of a salesman at his fingertips. The happiness of a salesman almost depends on him but his continuous happiness will depend on how he (Salesman) treats him. He is called The Customer.


Today I just want to reveal to every salesman, in our language, every businessman, the two kinds of customers that grace your outfit for your product or services. The thing is most people do not give a closer attention to the kind of persons that patronize their businesses. They are always concerned about the returns they get. This set of individuals is not bothered about the utmost satisfaction of their customers. They feel they don't owe the customer more than the goods or services they are going to render to them.
This is why many businesses fail, because care and attention is not giving to ascertain and give the required attention to the different kinds of customers they receive on daily basis. Without wasting any much time, I will discuss the two kinds of customers below.

The Loyal Customers
These sets of customers have tested your goods and services and can attest to your credibility and efficiency in your services delivery. They come once and feel like you are the best in the whole world and so, they keep coming all the times. First, you need to understand that these kinds of customers are hard to come by. Basically, they are ones that have used your services not once or twice but many times and can avouched to the goodness of your deliveries.

These sets of customers are gotten by constant assurance and good marketing skill. They approached your service outlet for the first time and with your great customer approach you woo them into 'first service purchase'. You make your offer as mouth watering as you can and try your best to deliver to the latter all you've convinced them to believe (Even when you know you might not keep to the standard for ever). Change can happen! It isn't bad for a latter time.

When you have made good your offers, they are forced to stick to purchasing your service and might become a good agent of referral for your business. They stick with your service as long as you keep giving them a quality service. They are loyal!

IN A SWIFT REACTION

In a Swift Reaction;

There dry pen begets ink,
To redirect an obvious link,
That seeks their image,
So clearly to expose their ill rampage.

Classly witted in defending
Their supposed tarnished image,
With inks of the blood of those depending,
On their self destroyed image.

My radio, their talking drum,
They heap their lies-filled drums,
Neglecting to take up their cross
Whose malnourished supporters whisper an applause.
