Popular Nigerian politician, entrepreneur, author and philanthropist, Akin Alabi has shared a piece of advice to people who are privileged of working with top personalities in the country.
Having access to prominent people in Nigeria is one of the hardest thing as their
busy schedule ensure that they do not have enough time to pay attention to
things that does not worth it and sometimes people don’t have the
opportunity of seeing them
However, some people are privileged to work with them as some handle their
messages and social media platforms as well as their haircuts and some basic things.
Akin Alabi have however urged those who might have been opportune to work with
them not to take it for granted and start talking about their personal problems.
Akin Alabi who is widely known for the effort put in his business and marketing
book, Small Business Big Money noted that workers like that should face their job
squarely and not venture into ranting about their life problem.
The multiple award winning entrepreneur noted that those working with prominent
people should just face their job squarely as they will end up getting better referral
from those top personalities.
Adding that those top personalities also have their own problem, Akin Alabi noted
that even the referral is an added advantage that is not a priority to those top personalities.

If anyone calls you for any sort of home service, do your job and don’t bombard them with your life issues. They have their own issues as well. . Your primary reason for you being there is to do your job and get paid. The referral is only an extra. If it doesn’t come, it should not be a problem and stop being entitled. Do your work and face your issues. If they remain your long term customers and a personal relationship comes out of it, then you can ask. If they say no, it does not mean they are bad people. Do not moralize how they spend their money. It’s theirs, not yours. Do your work.
