Why You Should Have a Business Card

Yes we are in the digital age. More and more businesses are being transacted online. Networking, growing our connections, advertising etc. everything is happening on the internet. So why should an entrepreneur still care about getting business/call cards?

Well, despite all the advantages of the internet, a business card is still very important and no serious business person should leave the house without them. Actually, no matter who you are or your line of work, you do need to have a business card. Below are some good reasons why you should have a business card.

It promotes your brand
A business card is the first interaction someone will have with your brand. You definitely will want this to be a lasting impression. Handing out a good card shows the care, commitment and thought that goes into making your business card and presents you as a serious entrepreneur, who thinks of all the tools to employ for the growth of his/her business.

Mofolusade, an entrepreneur I admire

When Mofolusade Sonaike (@mofolusade) is standing in front of you and talking business, it is impossible not to listen. She wears quite a number of caps for the different businesses she is involved in. The path she has trolled to where she is today, is rich with experiences from which she shares lessons. Also known as the Mumpreneur, Mofolusade’s community of women entrepreneurs who support each other and grow together, is growing steadily.

At the Boost your Business with Facebook event, I didn’t know what to expect. First to arrive at the venue, I had two intentions. One, sock in everything from the training and two, interview the beautiful facilitator, Mofolusade, for Drive Magazine - two birds with a stone. The second intention had to be shelved to give me a good reason to visit her soon, because Mofolusade is more than a likeable person. She is a wealth of knowledge and experience every entrepreneur should hang out with. That aside, she has a persona that pulls you in to her. She has the right opening to crack through a wall of shyness and get you immediately comfortable in the midst of strangers.

Her passion for assisting women entrepreneurs is real. She is quick to act like a connector among women entrepreneurs. Once you have her in your circle, you can be sure that getting through to another business owner who is in Mofolusade’s circle, either for business or otherwise, is 90% done.

Innovation: April Edition of Drive Magazine is Live!

It seems just like yesterday when we were screaming Happy New Year. But here we are in the fourth month of the year. Can you take out your goals for the year and honestly tell yourself the truth? By the end of 2018, are you sure you will achieve your 2018 goals? What roles did January, February and March have to play in the achievement of your goals? Did the past three months bring you your desires? If they didn’t, there is a possibility you wouldn’t be achieving all your goals for 2018.

But it doesn’t matter. You might not get it 100% but you can still get it above 50% if you really get into those plans right now. What this means is for you to tackle it differently to cross that finish line.
Innovation can be defined in many ways but it comes down to one thing, doing things in a different ways to achieve results as well as meeting needs. And that is what this edition is all about.

Our cover girl, Adele Dejak, is an inspiration whose business today is successful for the creation of jewelry and fashion accessories.

I Commit (Self-Motivation)

I commit to be better
than I was yesterday
To work harder
than I did yesterday
To give my best
as if it was my last opportunity
To believe in my abilities
to dream, plan and finish
To trust in the help of the Almighty
as my strength and guide
In this race
To realise my dreams.

Give Yourself The Gift Of ...


When was the last time you gave yourself a gift? I don’t mean some new clothes, accessories or gadgets. I am talking about the kind of gift that would ensure you grow positively?

During the last Christmas season, many of us reflected on the past months, where we got it right, where we got it wrong and where we could have done it better. As 2018 began, we promised ourselves change; especially in those areas we got it wrong.

The good thing about reflection is that it enables us to plan a better approach of moving forward. We learn from what went wrong and with determination, we surge ahead believing the jackpot could be just around the corner.
