HOW FAR with Black Votary.

"My name is Black Votary a recording artist and song writer. I do Afro beats music with a touch of soul. I started singing since 2018 and for me as much as music is business, it’s a state of mind. My sound is a reflection of my own personality, and with my baritone voice, every listener I am sure is left with a lasting impression."

Music to me is Art, a chance to bring my imaginations to reality.

"Whether You Think You Can or You Think You Can't, You're Right" - Henry Ford.

“Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours. Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.”

World Heart Day Campaign - #WHD

#WHD - Use ♥️ for everything today! 

In May 2012, world leaders committed to reducing global mortality from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by 25% by 2025. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is accountable for nearly half of all NCD deaths making it the world’s number one killer. World Heart Day is, therefore, the perfect platform for the CVD community to unite in the fight against CVD and reduce the global disease burden.

World Heart Day informs people around the globe that CVD, including heart disease and stroke, is the world’s leading cause of death claiming 18.6 million lives each year, and highlights the actions that individuals can take to prevent and control CVD. It aims to drive action to educate people that by controlling risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided.

(c) world-heart-federation.org

World Heart Day is a global campaign during which individuals, families, communities, and governments around the world participate in activities to take charge of their heart health and that of others. Through this campaign, the World Heart Federation unites people from all countries and backgrounds in the fight against the CVD burden and inspires and drives international action to encourage heart-healthy living across the world. We and our members believe in a world where heart health for everyone is a fundamental human right and a crucial element of global health justice.

Take care of your heart!

The 5 Stages Of Dating You Should Know.

Are you in a relationship or you're starting one?

Know this and know peace! Whether you’re at the start of a blossoming relationship or been with your significant other for years, every relationship goes through the same five stages of dating. These five stages are attraction, reality, commitment, intimacy and finally, engagement.

 Let's face it! It may seem pretty obvious, but relationships – whether romantic or platonic – grow with time and undergo distinct changes as bonds are formed and intimacy is developed. As your relationship evolves through each of these stages, you’ll learn more about each other and determine if you and your partner are committed and destined for a lifetime together.

If you’ve begun dating someone new or if you’re unsure at what stage your existing relationship is at, this blog is for you. Below, we’re going to talk you through each of the five stages of dating, so you can work out where you and your partner are right now and more importantly, whether your relationship has the strength to flourish into a long-term commitment.

1. Attraction

Attraction is the first stage of dating, and plays a fundamental part in whether the connection can develop into something more. Whether you meet each other naturally whilst out with friends, family, or acquaintances, through a matchmaker or on online dating sites or apps, there has to be an element of attraction between each couple for it to develop into something romantic. Often known as the honeymoon phase, this is the stage at which everything feels very new and exciting and seems almost perfect.

This stage often lasts for the first few months of your courtship and will see constant communication between the couple with lots of messaging back and forth on different channels such as texting, dating sites, social media and WhatsApp as well as long phone calls and video calls in the evenings on the days that you are not together. You will also find that during this period you will go on lots of dates and make time to get to know more about one another before you decide whether to take things to the next level.

2. Reality

Stage two is reality, and it tends to creep up on you slowly and can last for around six months. This signals the end of the honeymoon phase and is the point at which you might start to see flaws in your partner and notice things that annoy you.

This doesn’t mean you no longer like or love each other; it’s just reality and life setting in and you tend to become more aware of your partner after the rush of hormones has subsided. For example, you may find that as you start spending more time together you notice little quirks or habits that you might not have noticed at first.

Unfortunately, it is this second stage where lots of relationships fail. But the good news is, if you make it past this stage this is a good sign of things to come.

3. Commitment

Once you get past the reality stage, you enter the commitment phase. At this point, you express a desire to be with each other exclusively and you have grown to not only recognize but accept the flaws that may come with your partner.

This agreement to commit to each other regardless of circumstances also means accepting their dreams, goals, wants and needs in life. This could mean things like deciding where you want to live together, helping them to achieve career goals and discussing plans for the future. 

4. Intimacy

Stage four is intimacy and this typically involves nurturing the true love that has been cultivated over the last year or so. Contrary to popular belief, this stage doesn’t just relate to physical intimacy either, it’s also about connecting beyond the superficial.

Once two people have bonded with each other, this is when true love really begins. This stage usually means opening up to one another and really letting your guard down. For the first time in the relationship, you will become vulnerable without holding back, learning about each other’s pasts and deeper feelings and seeing their true character in a new light.

5. Engagement

The final stage is engagement and blissful love. This is where you ultimately decide to pledge a lifelong commitment to your partner and take things to the next level. This level of commitment comes with working together to plan a happy and fruitful future with each other.

Even though you have made a commitment, it doesn’t mean that your relationship will be without its ups and downs in the future. The important thing is to learn to apologize and forgive when things go wrong and instead work together as a solid partnership to overcome any challenges that life throws your way.

10 Things You Should Know or Do Before Starting Your Small business.

Step 1. Prepare yourself for the business:

Your mindsets, business orientation and attitude towards work are crucial individual or personal factors that will to large extent determine the success of your business. So, how do you prepare your mind and boost your business orientation for this small business you are starting?
Here are things you have to do;
  • Attend business seminars and workshops.
  • Buy business book or Subscribe for eBook that discusses business ideas.
  • Accept the reality that your business can fail tomorrow.
  • Prepare your mind for risk taking and bearing capacity because doing business is risk.
  • Prepare your mind to succeed despite all odds, disappointment, competition, and loss.
Step 2. Get a good small business idea:

What small business idea is good? This is a question that can only be answered individually. But in general to have a good small business idea and be successful it, the small business idea should meet these criteria;
  • It should be something you have knowledge on how to do.
  • It should be something you will like to do and wouldn’t mind doing it every day.
  • It has to be broad enough and appealing
  • It should be something you can raise sufficient funds to get the business started and keep it running until the business start to pay off in spades.
  • It should be a business idea that will earn you passive income.
If you haven’t yet found any ideas, perhaps you can make a research on Google and write down all the list of small business ideas you know. Some of them can be started as home-based business, others can’t. Some may require you to be an expert in a particular task or industry while others are in fields that you can easily learn.
Good business ideas alone cannot guarantee success in any business, but an average business idea backup with a good business fundamentals does wonders. All you need to do is to find a proven business line and then learn the fundamentals.

Step 3. Carryout a feasibility study on the business:

Carrying out feasibility study of the small business you are starting involves getting to know the rudiments and fundamentals of the business. Before jumping into any business, try first to have a thorough understanding of the fundamental metrics of the business, every business has its own hidden secret and if you must succeed, you must find out such hidden secret.

Step 4. Understand your market:

Understanding the market of the business you are going into will increase your chances of success. The best and correct way of doing this is by asking these simple questions.
Who are my customer or target audience?
How would they want to be served?
Who are my major competitors?
Who is the market leader?
What are my chances of survival?
These are simple question you must answer before starting the business.

Step 5. Write a business plan:

A simple business plan is necessary for the success of any business. This is where most people get it wrong, operating without a business plan. You can capitalize on this and make it a competitive advantage. If you will like people to invest in your business, write a business plan that attracts investors to that business. Banks don’t lend money to businesses that are operated without business plan. Even if it is an informal one, write it! One page, two pages, whatever numbers of pages, write it!! Write it!!! Though, one page business plan may not earn you bank loan but it is better than none. This is because it will you help concentrate on your goals and vision of the business.

Step 6. Find a good business location:

Find a good location to site your business. Are going to site your business on the outskirts of town or within the city? Are you going to separate yourself from the crowd? Wherever you will choose to site your business make sure you’re ready to face the challenges of the site.

Step 7. Obtain all necessary license and business permits:

Every industry has their regulatory and governing bodies. In your locality, check these governing bodies and the government operational policies to ensure that you are complying with them unless you want the government to be at your neck always. Factor the cost of the license, business permits in your budget.

Step 8. Register your business name:

If you actually want to build your business and stand out of the crowd, you have to register your business name or factor it in your cost projection as a short term plan. There are options here; you can choose between sole proprietorship, limited liability or public limited liability type of business entity. Get the business name registered. For example; those in Nigeria can register on Corporate Affair commission portal (CAC) online

Step 9. Raise funds for your business:

You need capital to start your business. So, I assumed that you have the necessary capital to at least launch the business while you raise and save financial backup.

Step 10. Branding & Advertisement: 

Brand your business! Get a logo and suitable colour(s) that can help sell out your business. Make flyers (e-flyers or printed), business cards, stickers, banners, etc. Create pages for your business online (create social media pages); this will help people to locate you and also see what you sell or what services you render. Have plans to advertise/promote  your business both online and offline. Although this is dependent on your budget. 

Step 10. Start the small business:

The last but the least is to get your business started. Most people have wonderful business ideas; they make a good business plan, do all necessary feasibility study and even raise enough capital to start a business but they fail to start the business.
Maybe they are afraid of facing failure but I do know that failure is only an option in any business. Many people only dream of starting a business and they lack the gut to start. Doing business is a risk. Are you willing to take the risk and start your own small business and be successful? My interest is to see you succeed in this your new business venture.
Now that you are ready to start a small business, and looking at the list of small business ideas you have, are they really best small business for beginners to start. There is no need pondering on the best small business to start. It is clear you understand that there is nothing like best small business for beginners. So, why not stop looking for best small business ideas. You should rather consider concentrating your strength on one business you have passion for and you can do well on.

Starting any business is not chickenfeed but by following the instructions and steps above without jumping any, I am sure that your chances of success will be high. Therefore, you can start a small business and be successful if you strictly apply those steps above.
