  1. I enjoy myself a lot but I derive more joy in working. I believe in hard work and one of my business success secrets is hard work. I go to bed by 2am and wake up by 5am. I don’t rest until I achieve something.
  2. If you don’t have ambition, you shouldn’t be alive.
  3. Every morning when I wake up, I make up my mind to solve as many problems, before retiring home.
  4. I built a conglomerate and emerged the richest black man in the world in 2008 but it didn’t happen overnight. It took me thirty years to get to where I am today. Youths of today aspire to be like me but they want to achieve it overnight. It’s not going to work. To build a successful business, you must start small and dream big.
  5. Endeavour to work as hard as possible to attain a new aim with each day that comes by. Don’t go to bed until you have achieved something productive.
  6. In the journey to success, tenacity of purpose is supreme.
  7. When you have made it in life, you must give back to those who made you.
  8. Africa’s risks are mainly perceived and not real. Unfortunately for us in Africa we are not really very good at telling our own story. But things are changing and people are beginning to understand that things are going very, very well.
  9. Don’t kill the competition. Competition is healthy for businesses. It keeps you on your toes.
  10. To build a successful business, you must start small and dream big.
