PRODUCT REVIEW - MY FIVE FAVE THINGS

My Five Fave Things
So I recently just discovered some products that makes me pop during the day for a few weeks now, so I decided to share. The five favorite things I am loving now are in no particular other;

PURE BLISS BISCUITS
Some people strongly advise that one becareful when buying things in Lagos traffic, but you see this pure bliss biscuit, I have bought it in Lagos traffic and I have had no regrets. When I see these boys hawk it in traffic, my eyes pop and my throat leaps for joy. The Creamy rich biscuit sells has two flavors, the Vanilla and the Chocolate. I have come to love the chocolate flavor, because it is filling, the vanilla flavor is just too sweet and can make me spend all my money *covers face*  Pure Bliss biscuit sells for a 100naira, it contains 8 pieces in a pack and it is manufactured by OK foods. It can pass for breakfast when taken with coffee or tea.

FLAT SANDAL
Yes its just a flat sandal with no label, but the carton colour and the simplicity of the sandal attracted me to it. I got this Simple yet chic looking sandal that has a gold rim just around the sole, from Lagos island market, on one of my trips to buy fabrics.
It comes in different colors and I bought it for 1500naira only, I have been rocking and replacing my flat shoes with this sandal, especially if I want to show off my toe nails. Buzz me in the comment section if you want it.

SLEEK MATTE ME LIPSTAIN
This lipstain from Sleek is so classy and mature, a former colleague gave it to me as a birthday gift and I haven't tried to rock it since February, because I am a red, burgundy and nude lipstick kinda girl, till I had a meeting to attend at Promasidor, I just decided to try it on and a potential  client who I went to pitch my PR / Strategy skills to for her business, just kept on reading my lips and offered me a one month trial period, as she said that lip color is classy! The lipstain is subtle yet matte and stays all day, I dont know if you can get this in Nigeria, cause it came in for her from the UK.

SACRED EYE LASHES
I have been saving this lashes in anticipation of my big day, but as Mr right is still yet to find me, I decided to try it on for a photoshoot I had some months back for a fashion brand called Rose Jane, and my eyes was the talk of the shoot, as I looked like a barbie doll. It is so light and reusable, it was a gift from Lola Maja's Sacred beauty.

ARTIFICIAL NAILS
These nails are a life saver! I recently had an impromtu pitch session and I had spent the better part of my evening in Lagos traffic the previous day, that all the saloons had closed before I finally got home, I use to over look my sister's expertise in nail fixing, you know that saying " a prophet isnt recognized in his own home" *covers face* My younger sister is a nail expert, I got home and complained and she said will you let me do your nails??? I jumped and said yes, shame didn't let me ask, so the sweetheart fixed my nails within 10mins! She charged me 500naira. She said she bought the nails for 200naira and late night work manship is 300naira. Nawa! No family in business.

MONDAY RANDOMS - HE STOLE MY IDEA!

I like my Monday Random corner, it is my rant and your rant corner.
So yesterday, Behind the scene of a photoshoot for the fashion brand ROSEJANE Collection, I and a couple of other friends behind the scene got talking; Entrepreneurship, the Journey and challenges.

One of our friends BTS complained bitterly about "how he saw an advert online, from a credible source to apply for funds, which requires that Startups who needs funding for their businesses sends in their business Ideas to the email address of the investor, then after proper screening, top 10 ideas will get shortlisted and invited to a boot camp where they will meet other startups and also get mentored .
He sent his business idea, and was finally shortlisted via mail, after which he never heard from the Organisers, until Months later, only for him to discover that a winner who has the same business idea and model as his has emerged. More so is that the organiser already adopted the business as his, and flagging it under the name of the supposed winner!
Pitching to investors can be risky, according to some people BTS, their reasons being that these investors steal your ideas or want 50% of your business.

Entrepreneurs solve problems by proffering actionable Solutions and making money while at it, while Investors Sow little and reap bountifully, says one of my friends behind the scene of the shoot. I have the money, you have the idea, you can't have it all say another one BTS, Investors steal ideas of Entrepreneurs, Entrepreneurs are gullible in the hands of investors, Do Entrepreneurs need Investors? Leveraging is better than giving your ideas to Investors without any copy writing, signed documents, Patenting, or in an opened challenge where people can see and hear, these and more are the arguments and comments of the pained entrepreneurs BTS.

The Question is; How can entrepreneurs protect their intellectual property? Yes! no idea is unique to one person, but what makes yours unique to you? Should we call the case above an issue of plagiarism or just agree that no idea is unique to one individual?

As an Entrepreneur, what challenges have you had with investors?
As an investor, why will you fund a business? Will you give loans, grants or take a percentage of the business?
