Dangote’s Ten Commandments on Money: Lessons on How to Make Money from One of the World’s Richest Men
“What we are doing now is just scratching the surface. The future of our youth is far brighter than that of my own generation.” Aliko Dangote
If you want to know how true he is, then read this book, in which Dangote tells a youth the story of his life, explaining details of the principles that have made him Africa’s richest man and one of the world’s best known entrepreneurs.
The amazing thing is that Dangote built his business empire from the scratch, starting out as a small scale trader to eventually build an emergent global conglomerate, becoming, in the process, one of the world’s richest men.
Just how was he able to do this? That is the interesting question which Peter Anosike tries to answer in this book creatively entitled Dangote’s 10 Commandments on Money. A motivational book designed to build the entrepreneurial spirit in the youths, Dangote’s 10 Commandments on Money is a fitting tribute to one of the most remarkable businessmen of this generation.
The book analyses the strategies which Dangote has used to achieve what some other persons might have considered unimaginable. It rightly casts him in the mould of a benevolent mentor by situating the story in the context of Dangote taking a bright youngster from an underprivileged background under his wings, teaching him how to succeed in business and supervising his business activities to ensure success.
He divides the principles into 10 and explains each of them thoroughly so that the youngster would understand them very well and then be able to put them into practice. Dangote’s aim in doing this is to help produce more of his kind so as to fast-track Nigeria’s development. Talk about a tribute to a quintessential patriot!₵50.00Quick View

Fate of System Thinking: Lessons for Decision Optimisation – Stories from UT Bank, Capital Bank and UniBank
With a history of over a century, the banking industry in Ghana has had periods of financial distress and has had to deal with the persistent problem of lack of financing for indigenous businesses.
UT Bank developed a business model that sought to solve the problem of lack of finance for the informal sector. The UT approach became a model for many other financial institutions. The liquidation of UT Bank and Capital Bank as well as the appointment of an administrator for uniBank signal significant problems worth exploring. Banking serves as the foundational industry for building an economy, thus the banking challenges unearth a far bigger challenge in the dynamics of our economy. Until we have fully understood what the issues are, we are unlikely to identify what the solutions should be.
The author is convinced that the world needs to appreciate the causes of the collapse of these institutions so as to stop fiddling with the symptoms and the demonization without knowledge of cause. This book shares the author’s personal experience and lessons from working with both UT Bank and Capital Bank. He is a financial services educator and has a good understanding of indigenous enterprises. The lessons are intended to revolutionize the way businesses are organized and how individuals approach decision making. The book will help organisations build stronger, sustainable, diverse and more effective systems from the ashes of UT Bank, Capital Bank and uniBank.₵80.00Quick View

When Richard Rumelt’s Good Strategy/Bad Strategy was published in 2011, it immediately struck a chord, calling out as bad strategy the mish-mash of pop culture, motivational slogans and business buzz speak so often and misleadingly masquerading as the real thing.
Since then, his original and pragmatic ideas have won fans around the world and continue to help readers to recognise and avoid the elements of bad strategy and adopt good, action-oriented strategies that honestly acknowledge the challenges being faced and offer straightforward approaches to overcoming them. Strategy should not be equated with ambition, leadership, vision or planning; rather, it is coherent action backed by an argument.
For Rumelt, the heart of good strategy is insight into the hidden power in any situation, and into an appropriate response – whether launching a new product, fighting a war or putting a man on the moon. Drawing on examples of the good and the bad from across all sectors and all ages, he shows how this insight can be cultivated with a wide variety of tools that lead to better thinking and better strategy, strategy that cuts through the hype and gets results.₵70.00Quick View

A good driver pays attention to the condition of the road; is aware of potential obstacles and opportunities; and with deliberate care and attention, navigates his way safely home. The journey to retirement is no different, except YOU are your own driver.
There’s nothing worse than reaching retirement, having worked hard, feeling old and tired, with nothing to show for it. For most people, retirement conjures up images of rest, relaxation and general enjoyment of life after years of labour. For many, however, when the time comes, the reality is rather different.
A successful and enjoyable retirement demands three pre-requisites: robust personal health, good financial planning and supportive relationships. After all, one does not retire into a vacuum, but into a social context. The quality of your social relationships is, therefore, crucial. But even more critical is the quality and state of your financial and personal wellbeing as you transition into this phase in your life. Retire Well will give you a clear, evidence-based approach towards preparing for retirement.
The book is aimed at those who are starting to think about retirement and presents relevant facts, analysis, opinions, and stories from the experience of others. You will be able to reflect on where you are now on your retirement journey, where you’d like to be when you retire, and the book will give you tools and encouragement to take the necessary purposeful action.₵85.00Quick View
