Moving on, I looked forward to the Mastering the Business of your Talent Master class with everything in me and I was not disappointed. Where do I start from? I will try not to make this post long.
We had good coffee and some tasty snacks just before the first session. Fela Durotoye was to speak to us. It was my first time seeing Fela Durotoye and I wasn’t going to let the words from his mouth go past me. He spoke with some much wisdom. He talked about the importance of entrepreneurship and it’s effect on the economy of the nation. He also talked about positioning your brand to give your clients an awesome customer experience. He went ahead to motivate us into understanding that we have to build the talent we have been given for us, family and God. He used the parable of the talent in the Bible to explain this. He made me understand that not building your talent to serve others and create well is a SIN.
Fela Durotoye sure has a knack for looking good and living good. He mentioned that he engaged in lifestyle activities to improve his health and feel good. His love for God was amazing as we prayed for seeing eyes and a listening ear.
When he was done, we had some photo sessions. I had to squeeze myself in because everyone wanted a photo with Uncle Fela. Later on, we went for Lunch and wooooow, please permit me to scream. I cannot hide my feelings here. My Tommy space is quite small (I eat little and I’m done) but it doesn’t stop me from being a foodie (with caution).
I saw good food and I appreciated Steve Harris for that. There was rice (varieties), Spaghetti, Fufu, Garri, Cake, Drinks, Chapman, Water, Bread etc (If you want to know more, attend next year’s own).
It was a buffet service so we were allowed to go take anything and everything we wanted. After that, we walked to a table I shared with some amazing minds. We talked while we eat (they say it’s bad habit but not in this case. Mbok) I enjoyed the food session.
The second session had Steve Harris talking to us and it was more of a practical class. I learnt alot as regards designing my ideal client avatar. I equally realised I couldn’t serve everybody and I learnt strategies on nailing my ideal clients.
As I sat there, I had big pictures of my goals/vision and I was thinking hard. I had good ideas in my head and I knew I had to go for it. Steve Harris said “It’s not what you don’t have that limits you, it’s what you have but don’t know how to use”
The class was also attended by lots of people I have connected with and felt their impact online. It felt good to see them in person. I felt so much power in one class because of the calibre of people there.
Powerful right. I will recommend the class to any body in business who wants to move to the next level. The class opens your mind to lots of possibilities and we were given a workbook to help us take action. Beautiful stuff.
In all, the Mastering the Business of Your Talent Master class is a good investment.
Be on the look for MBT 2017. Invest in yourself.
PS: Sorry for the picture quality. Before I realised I had no picture, it was evening and a bit dark.
