74. 7 Reasons why you should launch a virtual summit before an online program
You should launch a virtual summit before an online course In this episode of the Diaspora Entrepreneurs Podcast, I’ll give you seven reasons why you should launch a virtual summit before an online course. The craze for setting up online courses is baffling. Most times, it’s usually done for people to make more revenue while imparting knowledge in others. However, I have questioned people who have online courses about the ease of setting it up. The usual response is that creating an online course isn’t very easy, demanding, and expensive.  With the information I have gotten from various experts, I compare and contrast a virtual summit and an online course. I have concluded that it is more accessible and more beneficial for people to launch virtual summits than creating online courses.  Not to worry, I will tell you why I think my conclusion is legit. Reason 1: You grow and make money simultaneously with a virtual summit Reason 2: Creating content is more comfortable in a virtual summit Reason 3: Online course is time-consuming Reason 4: Promotion is easier with a virtual summit Reason 5: Setting up an online course is more expensive Reason 6: You can set yourself up for a successful online course sale with a virtual summit Reason 7: Visibility from a successful virtual summit opens doors to other opportunities I hope these reasons make sense to you, to avoid putting the cart before the horse and take the right action for your summit and if you want me to be your sound board i do that for new & existing clients and plan ahead to get their VIRTUAL SUMMIT right you can dm or send email to victor@diasporachiefs.com ...

73. 7 Tips to launching Your Virtual Summit - Victor Osioh
In this presentation, I’ll highlight 7 surefire tips that will help you launch your virtual summit. 3 BONUS TIPS Below You might think knowing the steps to launching a virtual summit is enough. Until you launch your summit, you’ll remain oblivious of some tricks you can employ to make your summit hassle-free. I am confident that when you’re done arming yourself with the knowledge, you’ll be able to apply them on your first virtual summit.  Tip 1: Think of your virtual summit as an avenue to build relationships and establish yourself as a thought leader Tip 2: Focus on promoting your event Tip 3: Select your speaker carefully Tip 4: Be time-conscious Tip 5: Engage every attendee and provide topnotch customer service Tip 6: Ensure your speakers wholly confirm their invitation before you publicize their appearance Tip 7: Planning requires full attention Tip 8: Create a solid plan Virtual summits provide exciting opportunities for exposure and revenue generation. However, you need to have a solid plan in place to achieve tremendous success. Create achievable and measurable goals that you can follow through on. Also, you need to create deadlines and ensure you meet them.  Furthermore, your promotional plan has to be topnotch.  Tip 9: Respond to feedback in a professional manner While your virtual summit is ongoing, comments from viewers will trickle in. A lot of them are going to be positive, and they’ll leave broad smiles on your face.  However, be prepared for criticism too. Not everyone will agree with you. You have to respond to every comment. Regardless of the type of feedback you get, make sure it is strictly professional and devoid of rude remarks.  Tip 10: Leverage on your business growth after the summit After the summit, you’ll most likely have a more extensive email list and an expanded online community. You need to have a plan to leverage this growth. Don’t drop your engagement level even after your increase. Be consistent with those emails. I hope these fires you to take the right action for your summit and if you want me to be your sound board i do that for new & existing clients and plan ahead to get their VIRTUAL SUMMIT right you can dm or send email to victor@diasporachiefs.com ...

#66. How To Become A Software Developer with No Coding Experience in 6 months
On this episode with Kingsley Ijoma the founder of Codehance.com We spoke about everything You Need To Become An Awesome Software Developer. Without Jumping From One YouTube Tutorial To The Next!Many Beginners Struggle To Learn Coding And To Get Better Consistently... (This is why...) The #1 reason beginners struggle to learn to code is because they don’t have access to all the RIGHT course plans and structure to enable deep learning. And, of the free courses they DO find online, they are trained to copy and paste code instead of learning to read/write code. People spend long hours trying to figure out why a code from old youtube video does not work...whilst lacking the foundation knowledge to tackle the problem. This quickly becomes very frustrating and stressful. Six month of Focus can change the trajectory of your life and family.

Why Consistency Don't Work wt Victor Osioh DE054
Being consistent may not be your major issue But having a bigger vision, a life goal, a major outcome, life or death situation is the main gist. My biggest vision right now is to activate and inspire 5000 Africans and Caribbeans diasporans worldwide in 3 years to move to Africa while leveraging all forms of digital tools to generate mutliple streams of revenue annually. I started this by producing & launching my first summit the Diaspora Entrepreneurs Growth Summit 2019 and that moved me to continue the conversation into podcasting, I started inviting diasporans to share their strategies and also from other backgrounds as I believe there's no monopoly on intelligence or strategy.  This vision has propelled me to keep looking for ways to bring about the possibility to reach out to millions of Africans & Caribbeans.  My next virtual summit is the Move Back Summit 2020, (Learn Everything You Need To Know About How To Successfully Move And Thrive In Africa) Please get my free gift 5 Simple Ways To Destroy Bad Habits and 5 Quick Ways To Clear Your Mind Of Overwhelm today.

How to Recognise Your Defense Mechanism wt Victor Osioh DE053
6 Defense Mechanism You Don’t Even Know That You’re Using There are some pretty amazing defense mechanisms in nature. Sea slugs squirt out their own intestines to make a veiled escape. Birds like peacocks and turkeys ruffle their feathers. Small animals like bugs and frogs carry poisons and colors on their backs to scare away predators—or punish stubborn ones. But when it comes to people, there may be a few defense mechanisms you’re using yourself that you barely recognize. #1: Denial: Sometimes an event or circumstance is so cataclysmicly devastating, we just tune it out, and don’t even know we’re doing it. You can become aware of your denial when other people around you call something to your attention. #2: Repression: This is sort of like denial, but it involves burying a thought of feeling deep inside, where it tends to come out in other ways. For example, you could be furious at your boss, and unable to release your anger at work, become vitriolic and argumentative at home. #3: Projection: It’s often easier to ignore our own faults, and pretend like other people have them instead. Projection involves seeing something bad in other people, which may or may not be there (like a negative character trait) when really, you are exhibiting that same trait. #4: Rationalization: This one involves taking a wrongdoing by you on others, or from others onto you) and reasoning it out to be okay. You’ll have to create a complex new system of logic in order to work this one into the universe in an acceptable way, but all sorts of crime from embezzlement to genocide have been rationalized as acceptable. #5: Regression: Regression basically involves taking a step back developmentally, to a space where it’s physically or emotionally safe. Children often regress as they move through life, going through periods where they revert to acting like a younger child. Adults may also undergo this process. For example, after getting fired from a job, you may revert to the safety net of looking for a comparably paying job, instead of searching for something better. #6: Reaction: Sometimes the primal instincts take over, and we get ready to fight. In situations that don’t have a lot of time around them, you can quickly jump into a reactionary mood before reflecting and calming down...for example, if someone cuts you off in traffic, you could step into a mode of road rage; or, if someone argues with you at work, you could quickly defend yourself by escalating the situation into a shouting match.Please get my free gift 5 Simple Ways To Destroy Bad Habits and 5 Quick Ways To Clear Your Mind Of Overwhelm today.

How I Deal With Toxic People wt Victor Osioh DE052
If you have chronically low self-esteem, then there’s a good chance that this came from other people.  (Please dont forget to SUBSCRIBE, RATE & REVIVIEW this show and episode.) The nasty thing about insecurity, jealousy and low esteem is that they are contagious. If you aren’t confident in yourself, then it will often cause you to become destructive and mean. You might put other people down in order to feel better about yourself and you might try to prevent others from fulfilling their potential because you don’t want to be left behind – even if this is happening in an unconscious way. At the same time, low self-esteem can mean you talk other people out of taking chances or following their dreams. This is not out of malice: in this case it simply comes down to the fact that you don’t have much faith in the ability that anyone has to change their fate. Chances are that you’ll know people like this in your life and that they could be the reason for your low self-esteem and confidence. Most upsettingly, there is a better-than-average chance that this came from your parents.   The number one way to raise a happy and confident child is to love them unconditionally and to believe in them 100% and support them 100%. I got 3, 2 teenagers, You need to be confident in yourself to do this. So, what do you do now if you’re trying to fix your low self esteem but you’re surrounded by people who are dragging you down?   The Best Advice The tip you’ll often read is that you should simply cut off contact with toxic or destructive people. I’ll say that you should take this advice if anyone is being purposefully cruel or belittling. You don’t have time in your life for malicious people. But if someone is doing it unintentionally, you shouldn’t just write them off: chances are they simply need help. What you do in the meantime is to surround yourself with more people who are positive, supportive and who do love you unconditionally and can help you focus forward. And you always remember to view what the toxic, negative people say through a lens of logic and reason. If they are putting you down, is it because they have a genuine point? Or is it because they themselves have low esteem? Finally, try to build them up too. That means you should ask them why they feel the way they do and do everything to support them. You can pull each other out of this funk, that is what friends are for after all! Send me a quick email victor@diasporachiefs.com lets talk about How to move you forward, so we can strategies on action steps and be responsible to make it a reality.

My 4 Self Sabotaging Ways wt Victor Osioh DE051
4 Ways I was sabotaging my productivity For many of us, our productivity is one of the most essential qualities that we can actively improve. Being productive means that you'll be able to get more done, which could lead to a raise or promotion. A common misconception about productivity is that you have to work harder, take fewer breaks, and spend more time at work. However, most of the time, our productivity is ruined by the long-term habits that we hold. Here are some of the most common ways that you are sabotaging your productivity. 🔥 °Learning to say NO to things that does not fit towards my goal was a great skill to learn For example, if you find yourself attending too many meetings Ask about the nature of the meeting and request an agenda so they can stay on track. 🔥 °Not having Set Priorities It can be easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of responsibilities and tasks. Before you know it you've reached the end of your day, and you still haven't tackled the critical work. Setting and organising priorities in advance mostly before bed, really helped me in resolving this issue. With a clear priority system, you can determine which tasks demand your attention and which ones you can ignore for the moment. 🔥 °Being Stuck with the Old Many people will sabotage their productivity merely because they are so deeply ingrained in a system that they've always used. You have a set routine, a set system, and you're scared to alter them because it has worked. If you want to increase your productivity, you need to experiment with new routines, processes, and make small tweaks. Eventually, you'll find a better system that will allow you to increase your productivity. 🔥 °Failing to Learn from your Mistakes. If you try an approach for a specific task and it results in you spending half your day to accomplish a relatively simple goal, then you need to try a different approach the next time you are faced with the task. Failing to learn from my mistakes has cost me and will cost you precious time & Great relationships. If you find that you are committing one or more of these acts of sabotage, take comfort in the knowledge that you aren't alone.

How Responsibility Set Me Free wt Victor Osioh DE050
On this episode, i spoke about the 2 ATTITUDES that has the power to change our lives instantly - Responsibility & Blame Many people, when they hear the word Responsibility, immediately associate it with burden or having to carry a load. Ironically, it is exactly the opposite. Responsibility leads to Freedom. When i took on these perspectives that created a situation, you can change or optimize it. With this realization comes a feeling of power and freedom. However, if you take on the perspective that someone or something else caused the situation, then you have NO ability to change it and you are left feeling powerless and resentful. When we are blaming someone or something else, we are actually giving our power away and putting ourselves in the position of being a victim. You see, if every situation is completely the fault of someone or something else, then our hands are bound. We have no choice but to accept it. When we choose to blame, we choose burden. If, however, we decide that every situation is something that we created, then we are back in control. I made a choice a few years ago, which tore my family apart for over 3 years and I made a conscious decision to make amends and take full responsibility for my actions and today we are better than ever. I could start blaming everyone else for my family breaking apart. We can make choices, which will change or at least modify the situation. When we choose to take responsibility, we choose freedom. Responsibility = Freedom + Empowerment Blame = Loss of Freedom + Disempowerment Send me a quick email victor@diasporachiefs.com lets talk about your amazing ideas, so we can strategies on action steps and be responsible to make it a reality.

In Pursuit of Significance wt Michael K Jackson DE048
Michael K. Jackson Inspirational speaker, trainer, author, and resilience & well-being strategist. As Founder and CEO of Michael K. Jackson International, I'm on a mission to inspire, empower and equip purpose-driven leaders around the world to bounce back from setbacks and build back stronger from adversity. On this episode, Michael shared his losses and setbacks he has experienced in my life, that has shown him that nothing is promised. These experiences have impressed upon him the desire to leave a legacy and make an impact - first and foremost on his own family as a father and husband and then on the world.

Recognise Your Limits Beliefs wt Victor Osioh DE046
Recognise Your Limiting Beliefs The three most common areas of limiting beliefs center on issues of Discouragement   helplessness and worthlessness. These three areas of belief can exert a great deal of influence with respect to a person’s mental and physical health. Discouragement occurs when someone does not believe a particular desired goal is even possible. State of being Hopelessness It is characterized by a sense that, “No matter what I do it won’t make a difference. What I want is not possible to get. It’s out of my control. I’m a victim.” Felling Incompetent these occurs when, even though he or she believes that the outcome exists and is possible to achieve, a person does not believe that he or she is capable of attaining it. State of being Helplessness It produces a sense that, “It’s possible for others to achieve this goal but not for me.

How To Improve Productivity During Lockdown wt Victor Osioh
For many of us, our productivity is one of the most essential qualities that we can actively improve. Being productive means that you'll be able to get measurable stuff done. A common misconception about productivity is that you have to work harder, take fewer breaks, and spend more time at work. However, most of the time, our productivity is ruined by the long-term habits that we hold. Here are some of the most common ways that you are sabotaging your productivity. 1. Attending Too Many Meetings, suggest a scrum based meeting upto 7 people, 10-15 mins max in the morning Meetings are nothing more than team-based productivity killers. They bring in too many people for a conversation that takes way too long, ends up going nowhere, and most likely wasn't even necessary. If you find that you being invited to too many meetings, have an honest conversation about the appropriateness of you being included in the conference. Ask about the nature of the meeting and request an agenda so they can stay on track. 2. Forgetting to Set Priorities, You now work from home, new environment It can be easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of responsibilities and tasks, those litle annoying chores you just want to take care off in the bathroom or garden, Before you know it you've reached the end of your day, and you still haven't tackled the critical work. Setting and organizing priorities in advance can help you resolve this issue. With a clear priority system, you can determine which tasks demand your attention and which ones you can ignore for the moment. 3. Refusing to Try a New System, which tech or digital tools you loved to hate Many people will sabotage their productivity merely because they are so deeply ingrained in a system that they've always used. You have a set routine, a set system, and you're scared to alter them because it has worked. If you want to be or increase your productivity in this era, you need to experiment with new routines, processes, and make small tweaks. Eventually, you'll find a better system that will allow you to increase your productivity. If you hate emojis start loving them and give someone a virtual fits bump today. 4. Failing to Learn from your Mistakes, nobody knows where we we heading right now, so embrase mistake If you try an approach for a specific task and it results in you spending half your day to accomplish a relatively simple goal, then you need to try a different approach the next time you are faced with the task. Failing to learn from your mistakes will cost you precious time, and you will become doomed to continue to repeat those mistakes. If you find that you are committing one or more of these acts of sabotage, take comfort in the knowledge that you aren't alone. Now that you know how they affect your productivity, you can take steps to eliminate their influence on your life.

How To Find The Audacity of Laugh and Smile During Crisis wt Keeley Taverner DE032
Keeley Taverner Founder / Director - Key4Change Practitioners Psychotherapist, Coach and Supervisor Keeley was born in the UK to a first-generation black Jamaican mother and a white British father. Her parents split up when she was three years and she lived with her mother on a North-West London council estate. Her childhood was challenging in an environment where as Keeley puts it, “Expectations were low, teenage pregnancy was high and our schools housed us rather than engineered our minds for greatness. As a result, she left school with no qualifications or prospects and in turn, no ambition or self-belief. By 1997, Keeley was a cashier on Ikea’s checkout line and a mother to two young daughters. She was also in an abusive narcissistic relationship and began reading self-help books. Keeley experienced a ‘yellow bag’ epiphany when retrieving abandoned stock at the tills. An inner voice that simply said, ‘surely you can do better than this Keeley’? Keeley believed that inner voice and from that moment on she has has taken bold, passionate, couragous steps to change her life. Keeley has definitely walked the walk and is priviledged that today she helps others who want to do the same. Keeley is much more than a ‘book smart’ psychotherapist. Her transition from victim to victor, from unskilled cashier to straight-talking, no nonsense psychotherapist and Director of Key for Change is testament to her grit and determination to rise up, against the odds and to become her greatest self.

How To Be Successful When Launching A Product/Idea wt Samit Patel DE29
Samit Patel Kickstarter consultant & Crowdfunding expert  www.samitpatel.net    When I first started helping founders launch new products, I quickly discovered that the industry was rather… murky. It seemed like everybody had a secret that they wouldn’t tell anyone. Agencies would run ads from their own accounts. Founders were always kept out of the loop. Then and there, I decided that when I started my own agency, it would be different. My mission was to help founders find the funding they need to develop groundbreaking projects, but with total transparency. Founders would have access to everything we do. I also wanted to develop relationships that would last; to be in it for the long haul.

2020 Is Coming, How Would You Get Out Of The Rat Race DC019
00:37       Welcome, welcome. Welcome to another wonderful episode of the Diaspora chiefs podcast. Today just going to be about some personal reflection, well actually it started my own podcast if you, a few months ago after the diaspora entrepreneurs growth summit, 2019 earlier this year, the response on the participation was so great. It was so amazing and your attendance was fantastic. So I realized that you see the people that I'm trying to serve, they are not really cared for or properly looked after, which is the African and Caribbean small businesses. Most of the stories are not being told in the right way. Their successes are not being covered the right way. We have amazing, amazing entrepreneurs from the African and Caribbean community who needs, who needs their story to be, to, to inspire the next generation of African and Caribbean entrepreneurs. They're not being covered by the mainstream media. 01:36                    That is why I said, you know what, let me like put my foot into these, into this sector and see if I can like shine more light on various aspect of the diaspora but is using digital tools to help their businesses to grow or to use that to help their businesses to be more visible. And there are lots of them out there, small businesses from the African and Caribbean community. Woo. Actually having tribe in businesses who are starting up great and amazing stuff all on the digital space. I saw these as my passion because I love talking about businesses. I love talking about business development, marketing, sales, finding your niche and those kinds of amazing stuff. For me, business is fun. So some weeks ago, my son 02:29                    after doing an episode, 02:32                    Oh, the diaspora brushes podcast. My soul came to me and say, calm. That. Why are you doing this? And my daughter's like first came in on board with the same question. Yes, that's why you're doing the podcast. I said, well, you know what, there's so many negative stuff being said about the Africans and the Caribbean. I see. If we, uh, 02:52                    okay, let me not go there as if we are. I think we are kind of leeches. Whereas there's so many, many, they're like 95% of those who are actually doing amazing stuff in the UK, in Europe, in America and Canada. We're doing amazing stuff. We are educated people, we are learned, people. We are, we are fantastic people and whatever we've, we've set our mind to, we actually achieve them without any barriers, without any institutional roadblocks. You see, so do the web. The internet has given us a level playing field now for each and every one of us to like be more responsible. Well, you can broadcast yourself from any part of the world really Tivoli cheap and you can actually target whoever you want to target. I mean, talk to whoever you want to talk to. I mean send your message to defend your message directly to who you want your message to go. If you have a service or a product that you've created and you know you're not like Coca Cola or you know like BMW who has a big budget to go on

I Should Have Listened DC017
I should have listened to an online entrepreneur back in 2010. follow my guts and take action towards starting out and Learn from my mistake... I was on a John Lee business accelerator program this week and I got some powerful insights and aha moment for me and would love to share 3. which are very powerful mind shifts but all the same they are the fundamentals for all achievements for any successful person on this planet from Tyler Perry to Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos to Aliko Dangote and to you listening to me right now.   There are Must Do's, Should Do's, Could Do and WOULD DO.   NO.1. You Must Decide on what is it you want. According to Napoleon Hill from his book THINK AND GROW RICH, which is one of the most read entrepreneurial books of all time. (Desire is the starting point of all achievement.) this is the biggest driving force and none else. if you decide on just anything that you want, BE SPECIFIC, the universe will shift and make it happen, It’s like placing an order on Amazon or eBay and expect your order delivered. Be Clear on what you want, clarity is not easy to achieve from the start of blocks but as we become consistent by DOING it gets clearer.   NO. 2 To grow we need to go outside our comfort zone After deciding we need to go outside our comfort zone, most times going outside your comfort zone Looks dramatic or scary but going out your comfort zone might be delayed gratification, adding extra 30 mins a day to learn a new skill, 5 extra sales calls, say Hello to a stranger or that person that has been to where you want to go or achieved the success you want. one of the biggest silent killers right now is your comfort zone. I once lived a life of quiet desperation and crying in the showers wishing my circumstances could change and not realising that everything I ever wanted was on the other side of my comfort zone. Now, I know what I want and decided to go after it as A Chief, as a student, pushing myself, going into new and unfamiliar territories, seeking teachers and mentors to guide me like a sat nav, while I do the work   Remember that... And while you DO need to keep expanding your knowledge in specific areas of your choosing - you can start implementing the things you learn as you go. And you will be surprised because along the way you can start earning while learning, see yourself becoming successful while building momentum.  This is something I was late to realize... NO 3. Everything is energy, the more you give the more you get. What belief system do you have, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality, the goal, the outcome, you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” It’s certainly true that your reality tends to reflect the type of energy you put into it. Let’s face it, when you put happiness and kindness into the world, you also tend to interpret things out there in a certain way… you notice the good things in life. Your subjectivity shapes your world. It’s a wonderful idea and one to take with you. Simple practice Smile at someone they will 95% reciprocate. This is a universal law. “Do Not Lie to Yourself We have to be honest about what we want and take risks rather than lie to ourselves and make excuses to stay in our comfort zone.” ― Roy T. Bennett

What If
What if, What if, What if. This question comes to us every day. What if I said this, What if I did that or what if I didn’t. It comes down to decisions. We all have decisions to make every day of our lives. We all make good and bad decisions. That’s life. When you look back on your life you can think of some really great decisions that you made, decisions that have altered the course of your life. You can also remember some really bad ones that have affected you in a negative way.  Life is never static, it’s always changing and opportunities come and go. Doors open and we have to decide whether to step through and seize the opportunity or not. When you are standing in front of that open door of opportunity the question arises what if? ・do I or don’t I. We need to make a decision. How do we make decisions? This depends on our background, education, life experiences and sometimes advice from others. We don’t know each other, but I would like to give you some advice. Suppose I said that I knew something that could change your life forever for the better. Would you be interested? Suppose I said I knew someone that was showing other people how to acquire something like real estate for free. Suppose you could also learn how to build on yours and・something like a five-star hotel. You would also learn how to market your hotel・and collect rent from guests that pay to stay. Would you be interested?   What am I talking about? It’s called virtual real estate. Your own space on the World Wide Web or Internet if you prefer. If you own a space there, it can turn out to be a very valuable property.   One of the most expensive houses in the world is a 12 bedroom mansion in London England for which an Indian steel tycoon paid $128 million.   The most valuable webpage in history, to date, will probably be Amazon – $34,204,000,000 $1,084 per second, Google about $929 per second eBay about $290 per second Alibaba – $176 per second Netflix – $68 per second. These were not created from outer space. Now here’s the difference. The tycoon paid $128 million for the house. How much did these guys pay for their webpages to start? Next to nothing. Maybe a couple of hundred bucks at the most depending on how they went about it.  I am going to open a door for you that could literally change your life. The only cost is your time and effort. Now you must decide! Ask yourself the following question:- what if I decide to start anything online, decide what I want, find out who has done what I desired, get coached and mentored, be around the right mind-set and with deliberate work and it works. What would an extra 3 grand 5, 10 grand do for you even while still having a fulltime employment? Don’t go or wish for a second job, create a second income stream now. I am Victor Osioh the diaspora chiefs I just want to make you think and take action.

Get More Mental Clarity wt Victor Osioh
Our minds are a fantastic thing. It is full of immense possibilities and has unlimited capabilities. However, in today’s over-stimulated and fast-paced world, our minds can quickly become overwhelmed. Many people feel that their minds are never at peace. There is a constant commotion that never stops, with an out of control banging of thoughts that can leave them feeling nervous, worried, sad, or troubled. They are never at peace with themselves and can never seem to get out of their ruts and move forward to accomplish their goals. Often, they feel unfocused and disoriented. These are all clear signs of a cluttered mind. When our minds become overworked, it can lead to an inability to think straight, which can result in a loss of productivity. If you feel like your mind is racing faster than you can keep up, it is essential that you take care of yourself and find a way to declutter your mind so that you can gain mental clarity and achieve greater success. Mental clutter can include worrying about the future, focusing on the past, and keeping a mental to-do list, among others. There are different kinds of mental clutter that can end up causing you to lose focus and keep you from greater success. Negative Self-Talk Worrying – what would people think? Fear – blocks you from processing information properly Guilt - shame Regret – the failures, disappointments The News – the woes of the world Money – constant pressure of not having enough The Past – Not letting go  Your Current Habits   Listen Now

Launch Journey wt Emmanuel Lamptey
"We all have different stories but as to whether we'd like to share our story is another story."  - E. Lamptey  Indigenous House is a lifestyle brand that was created by Emmanuel Lamptey, a Ghanaian creative, to promote African culture across and beyond the borders of the continent. He had the idea in 2012 and with funding from his mum, he registered it as a Limited Company in Ghana with the name "I Hate Fashion" (IHF) - a controversial name which was intended to be metaphoric. This was in January 2013. At the time, the main products were ties, pocket squares, bow ties, waist sashes and graduation stoles (all made with kente) which were sourced directly from local kente weavers in Ghana. Being a big lover of art and craft, he gathered ideas and inspiration from things of African origin, which led him to rebrand and come up with a name that sounds more appealing in 2019. Now registered in the UK, the brand seeks to collaborate with people of African descent that want to share indigenous experiences.   #WeAreIndigenous
