THE BUSINESS IN YOU DAILY: Continue to Learn… You must be a voracious reader!

Remy Chukwunyere writes from Imo State.

Good morning Dear #IYBlog readers, my good people! I am sure someone is learning from this series. If you are one of them, I will like to hear from you, please.

Today, on the Business in You Daily, I will be discussing about reading. It’s always said that “readers are leaders”… For me, I know it’s true, do you also think so? Reading is the easiest and cheapest way to learn from others, especially those who have succeeded in their chosen careers. 

Usually, books take their writers years to pour out their thoughts and experiences on paper but reading it can take you only a few days to grab all the information that took the author years to gather. What a strategic way to learn? 

See what Les Brown said… 

“We are constantly surrounded by negativity, distractions and people who have given up on their dreams. From morning till night, we cannot avoid them. This is a reality of our lives. However, I have found that we can absolutely protect ourselves from them… 

We can surround ourselves by the best minds, the greatest thinkers and brilliant experts. How? We do it by reading! Over 40 years ago, I made a rule. I have to read at least 30 pages a day. But, not just anything, I have to read empowering books that truly lift me up, books written by experts in their fields. Books, that give me systems I can follow to truly transform my life.”

My dear, I want you to know that reading a good book is like having the author right there with you, everyday… motivating, inspiring and making you hungry for more information. 

I cannot forget in a hurry an experience I had with one of the books written by one of our best motivational speakers in Nigeria, Pastor Ada Ezeka. Even though, I have not seen her physically then, do you know that I was hearing her powerful voice while I was reading that book, entitled: From Rags to Riches? It can be that inspiring and motivational, most times. 

With such an experience, the author rightly fits in as your mentor, even when there is no physical contact. What is then required from you is to get more books written by your “unseen mentor” in the same subject area and continue to learn from him or her in your closet.

This is one of the secrets I revealed to DOJ and his team that I promised to share with you. I am sure it was worth waiting for… hahahaha!

Let’s do this again tomorrow but don’t forget that we’re reaching you from Youth Cooperative and Enterprise Academy. To sign up for our enterprise academy, visit or call or whatsapp me on 08038702075

Many thank for your time, Enjoy the rest of the day ahead of you!
