Everybody was so upset about the placements they got. But I wasn’t. I was counting down the days where I would be shown the true face of business. I’ve known Arnold a long time now, I knew that working for him wasn’t going to be like working with a brother; where they let you off everything . THIS WAS GOING TO BE SHEER HARD WORK. It’s only been a week and I tell you I have done overtime more than your mum has done in a year.
Everyday seeing the same people at the office and telling them ‘Good Morning’ has been a blessing. Really and truly I have enjoyed every moment of it. From first stepping into the Lounge and Arnold got me to do some impossible ‘Thinking outside the box game’ I have actually thought about business differently. Seeing how many people in their business are striving is incredible to watch.
Meeting the gentleman was scary because this guy don’t joke. (Watch out for him though he is coming). I hate communicating, and asking him questions was like asking the security guy for a hug, I repeat he doesn’t joke. He said that he doesn’t like ‘Dreams’ because you are not going to fulfill them. You have to think BIG and map it out.
My second meeting was with Andy Ayim, and he was cool. But until he opened his mouth, he wasn’t sugar coating anything. The things this guy said was like pure water ( Not the water that is flowing in the Thames oo) he was not hiding anything, he was just being clear. He was serious.
My third meeting (Yes i had like 3 meetings this week) was with Samuel Mensah. He is Arnold’s Genius. His mastermind. His thinker. But he had some REALLY good ideas and I enjoyed that meeting the most, because we came up with some good ideas (you better watch out). Then Joseph came and things got jokey because that guy comes out with the most random things ever. It’s so funny.
Thursday. Thursday. Thursday. I was hoping this day wouldn’t come. If I tell you I hate socialising with people that I don’t know, well now you know. Samuel Kasumu founder of Elevations Network. Top man right there and his wife Barbara, Chief Executive of Elevation Networks. Now that is hard because business with your spouse can either break you or make you, and it made them. Not everyday you get to meet Ken Livingstone. He has more humor than me, and that’s a lot. It was an interesting day and I had to network with people for WAM, but i was more successful than what i thought it would be. But all in all this week has been one of the best weeks I’ve had this year.
And obviously i’m the Youth Ambassador for MeFiRi Ghana.
