#Entrepreneur In yesterday’s post, I shared a story of a successful Nigerian's Entrepreneur, Adenike Ogumlesi, who is the founder, CEO, and manufacturer of the Nigerian babies and kiddies clothing line called Ruff ‘n’ Tumble . Adenike  started up her business just little as any other person and  she ended up being super-rich. Today, I’m going to share with you yet another story of an Entrepreneur that also started small but ends up becoming the richest man in Nigeria. His business brand becomes a household name both in Nigeria and Africa. A few billionaires roam the earth. What gets even more exciting is whenever the world hears of African billionaires.

  If there were any doubts about whether writer’s block really exists, they’ve now been laid to rest. A study of 2,500 writers by Stop Procrastinating , the productivity app and website, investigated how to beat writer’s block and found that 63% of writers had suffered a block at some point.   The definition of writers’ block was clear: your motivation or ideas for writing dry up. The survey found that the cause of writer’s block were high expectations, fear of failure, and pressure of unrealistic deadlines. The good news is that all the writers in the survey beat writer’s block though a combination of creative motivation techniques and unorthodox routines.
