14 Things Successful People Do First Thing every Morning

14 Things Successful People Do First Thing every Morning

Those among us who have managed to find professional success and eke out a life actively embrace this philosophy. They must set aside their first hours of the day to invest in their top-priority activities before other people’s priorities come rushing in.

So what do successful executives and entrepreneurs do when they are rested and fresh? From Vanderkam’s study of morning rituals and our own research, we outline the following 14 things that the most successful people do before breakfast. While they might not do all of these things every morning, each has been found to be an effective way to start the day.

14 Things Successful People Do First Thing in the Morning

They wake up early.

Successful people know that time is a precious commodity. And while theirs is easily eaten up by phone calls, meetings, and sudden crises once they’ve gotten to the office, the morning hours are under their control. That’s why many of them rise before the sun, squeezing out as much time as they can to do with as they please.

In a poll of 20 executives cited by Vanderkam, 90 percent said they wake up before 6 a.m. on weekdays. PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, for example, wakes at 4 a.m. and is in the office no later than 7 a.m. Meanwhile, Disney CEO Bob Iger gets up at 4:30 to read, and Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey is up at 5:30 to jog.

The bottom line: Productive mornings start with early wake-up calls.

They drink water.

Many successful executives reach for water instead of coffee first thing in the morning.

Kat Cole, president of Focus Brands, the parent company of Auntie Anne’s, Carvel, and Cinnabon, wakes up a 5 a.m. every morning and drinks 24 ounces of water.

Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington and Birchbox Man chief Brad Lande start their days with a glass of hot water with lemon.

Drinking water in the morning helps you feel more alert, rehydrates your body, and kick-starts your metabolism, says Rania Batayneh, MPH, a nutritionist and author of The One One One Diet.

If you’re using your ATM card for debit transactions, ask your bank what kind of protection it offers if the card is stolen or lost. Thousands of naira could be pulled from your current account and, in many cases, you won’t be nearly as protected as you will be with a stolen credit card.

Expert who has interviewed Various billionaires reveal secrets to their success
Vikas Shah, a Professor of Entrepreneurship has interviewed the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Sir James Dyson, and Steve Ballmer and here he reveals their simple secrets. Their secret formula is captured in these ten points and unsurprisingly, passion is a vital ingredient. These people set out to pursue something they love doing and make a change without intending to make crazy money in the first place.
1. Find your passion: The vast majority of people who have made their billions didn’t intend to make that money; they found something they were unbelievably passionate about, and made it their life. It just so happened their timing was perfect, and it became a huge wealth generator – but that passion was the starting point.
2. Be resilient: The overwhelming majority of billionaires I’ve met advise me that you have be resilient. You have to be able to get back up after the knocks, you have to be prepared to fail and to embrace that, and you have to be prepared to operate outside the comfort zone of your normal life.

The social media giant ,facebook seem to be on  the quest to take over the internet has it has added a new “jobs” feature for its business pages so that companies can post open positions to recruit new employees

The new Jobs features could give companies another reason to drive traffic to their Facebook Page beyond marketing their products in the News Feed, while also allowing them to pay the social network to get their open position in front of more candidates.
The new features could compete with LinkedIn, as well as developers like Work4, Workable and Jobscore that build “Jobs” tab applications that businesses can embed in their Facebook Pages. Perhaps Facebook was prepping for these new features when it tested Profile Tags last year that mimic LinkedIn’s endorsements feature.

38 Cool Hobbies That can Make Money (and how)

38 Cool Hobbies That can Make Money (and how)

38 Cool Hobbies That can Make Money (and how)

To Make money  is quite easy,, TBH If you are pretty good at a hobby, you can probably make money off it.You’re about to get a lot of ideas on how to do just that, so keep reading.

37 Hobbies That Make Money

1. Blogging

At the heart of making money from your hobby is creating a website about your passionate hobby. Look, you may be the best horse back rider in the world. But if nobody knows who you are, nobody will care. If nobody cares, you won’t make any money with your hobby. Which is why it’s incredibly important to make yourself known. Again, the easiest and cheapest way to do this (and make a lot of money) is to reach people online.

1(b). Taking Paid Surveys

Did you know you can make money expressing your opinion?
Companies are desperate to make better products and services, and they need your opinions in order to accomplish this.
You can make a decent income by participating in surveys for money daily. It’s a nice little side hobby because they pay you right away and you can actually make a decent income from it. And you can get started right away. All you need to do is sign up with a few survey websites to begin taking surveys for money.

2. Gaming

If you’re a gamer and you’re fairly good at it, you can make money by uploading your game play to website like Youtube. People will watch your videos and a percentage of them will click the Youtube ads. You will make a commission every time someone clicks. It could be a few cents to a few dollars.
If you’re really elite, you can join clans and go to tournaments in your city or even around the world. If you’re successful, you can win items like the latest gaming hardware, games, and even cash. Big tournaments pay out hundreds of thousands of dollars. You can also potentially get sponsored by big gaming brands, too. That’s guaranteed money in the bank.
Playing in gaming tournaments for money is called esporting. Big money is paid out at these tournies.

3. Baking

If you love baking, you know you don’t spend hours baking just a few cookies. You bake TONS of cookies. And you can’t eat them all. Instead of giving them to your neighbor or forcing them down your throat, find schools, restaurants, cafes, or bake sales where you can sell your baked goods.
You can (and should) start a baking blog as well. Because your earning potential online is virtually unlimited. You could create a baking ebook and sell it to your readers. Or display ads on your website. Or create baking tutorials on Youtube and make money off Youtube ads.

4. Photography

Photography is an incredibly lucrative hobby. It’s absolutely necessary to create a website to display your work. I’d personally choose a type of photography, like “scenery photography” or “animal photography”, or “travel photography” and specialize in that.
The sky is the limit for money making potential. You can create photography tutorials to sell, review your photography gear and make money from referring people to places to buy photography gear, or sell your photos. You’ll get paid a flat fee for each photo or get paid on a royalty basis, where every time your photo is downloaded, you get paid.

5. Web Design

If your hobby is web design, you have an incredibly useful skill. This is a skill worth learning if you don’t have a clue about it. Virtually every business is online and new business are created every minute. They all need websites created and managed. You can charge a ton of money too.
You can charge $2000+ to create a website that may only take you 20 hours to complete. You can also outsource someone to create a website for your client. You charge $2000 for the website to be made, and pay the outsourcer maybe a few hundred dollars to make it, while pocketing the change. Rinse and repeat. You’ll want to find someone in a country like the Philippines to create the website because you can pay them way less.
Like virtually everything on this list, I recommend creating a blog to showcase your work to help people choose your web designing abilities for their business.

Top 6 Nigerian banks and how much they pay their staffs – See number 1!!

Nigerian banks and how much they pay their staffs

The banking sector in Nigeria (Nigerian banks) is one of highest paying sector as far as salaries are concerned. What banks pay their workers however differs from bank to bank. This is partly due to the fact that there are no particular regulations that stipulate what private organisations should pay their workers.

Also, the financial strength, customer base and performance of the bank are other factors responsible for how much a bank pays. Here is what some Nigerian banks pay their staff in Nigeria.

6. Central Bank of Nigeria

It is also good to know what the apex bank pay its staff. CBN does one month training for its new intakes and pays N122,000 per month afterwards. This is aside the many mouth-watering allowances. Many industry watchers say CBN is the master when it comes to allowances. So what is lacking in actual salary is made up for in allowances. Do you work in a bank or have relations working there? You can add a comment to give us an idea how much the bank pays.

5. Fidelity Bank

Fidelity is one of the new generation banks, but has done quite well within a short period of its existence. The bank started as a Mortgage bank in 1988 and converted to a commercial bank in 1990.

Fidelity pays about N140,000 monthly at entry level, an amount many young graduates will agree is good enough to start planning life within Nigeria.
