Excerpts from Omawumi Ogbe

  • If you must go global, you must provide value.
  • Knowledge brings confidence. If you can talk the talk and walk the walk, doors will open for you
  • Preparation has to meet opportunity in going global . Anticipate the things you need for the place you want to go.
  • Nothing grows in your comfort zone. Routine kills… Innovate or die.
  • Consistent development should be your mantra. Invest In yourself. Take responsibility for you life. There is no overnight success

Always try to make people happy
Have a plan one day someone who may help will ask and you will be ready. Have a back up plan… Focus on the rest of your life.
