Support.Growing.Businesses… Part 2

Hey guys. I am back.

image

Fine Warrior!!!

Feedback on Part 1 of this was awesome. 

Chrishill phones has to be the winner. Funny thing is I didn’t tell any of the three business owners I featured. I kinda forgot or didn’t care to. Whatever. Anyways dude rang me and was soooooooooo grateful. Gushfully grateful. 

He said A LOT of you got phones from him and kept saying ‘…from Eziaha‘. I’m happy for him. He’s a great and trustworthy guy, and I’m glad I could help. 

You guys are awesome. Thank you.

So, by way of repeating, if you need a phone from an absolutely great and honest dealer, holler at Chrishill. He delivers to anywhere in Nigeria and has from the affordable to the more high end phones. Original and warranty’d phones and Tablets and accessories. Even if you don’t need now, store his number for later or maybe if someone you know needs and asks you. 

Be sure to mention Eziaha. Both for an even better deal and also you might also be making sure I get my iPhone 6s or S7 from him either free or ridiculously cheap.

This month, let’s do three more.

Or Four.

Starting right with my big sister’s business 

1. Boarnerges Pharmacy and Stores

image

Located in the heart of Victoria Island, Right opposite Siverbird Galleria on Ahmadu Bello way, the state-of-the-art Boarnerges pharmacy caters to ALL your pharmaceutical and wellness needs.

image

Her Pharmacists and staff are so well trained and she purchases only originals, mostly from the manufacturers or dealers who buy straight from the manufacturers.

image

Never ever compromises quality. And you know you don’t want compromised health related stuff. 

image

She also stocks toiletries, cosmetics and stuff like that. They also conduct free BMI if you request on walk-in. 

image

Plus her POS actually always works. 

image

I know half of Lagos work on the island so please give them a call today to find out if they have what you need and pop in too at your lunch time or close of work. 

image

Peek my favorite tea Twinings and some yumyums too

And if you work in a hospital, suggest to your purchase team/hospital pharmacy to order from Boarneges especially BUT NOT LIMITED to those on the island. We could work out delivery for bulk purchase and/or select location. 

image

Phone number : 07046475180 014536563

Email: boanergespharmacy@yahoo.com

Address: Sleek Studio Square, opposite Silverbird cinemas, 141 Ahmadu Bello, VI.

I have such a heart for growing businesses, and I believe God is calling me into that field and so I’m  kicking off a Social media strategy for growing businesses and Boarnerges is one of my first clients. She’s paying, just incase you wondered. You will meet more soon. I told yawl seasons changed right… Soooo excited haha. 

So Blog, Facebook, Twitter, the whole works. The most exciting social media campaign ever. I’ve done this for Emzor pharmaceuticals before and i’m certainly looking forward to going this road again this time as an ‘Apostle in the marketplace’. 

Btw, we need a sales assistant with an OND in accounting please. You also need to live ‘not too far away’. If you fit or know anyone who fits, please do me a mail eziaha@eziaha.com

Boarnerges is a name right from the Word. Meaning (son of) thunder. That’s cos we are blowing, exploding EVERYWHERE!!!

2. Emmanuel, Agent for househelps

I really enjoyed working with Emma. He is a believer and was hands down the best agent I dealt with. And I dealt with quite a FEW. He was sincere, honest, patient and wasn’t overly money conscious even though he of course is in business to make money. You must understand that most agents start singing the ‘money tune’ even before they have found your specifications. They give you the most ridiculous conditions that you almost wanna slap them. 

His fees and conditions were very reasonable too. And I was comfy with the background checks he does. He won’t lie and say ‘She’s from my village. She’s like my sister. She just came to Lagos 2days ago, etc ‘ as most agents usually lie. What he didn’t do and what he doesn’t know, he will say. No lying. He put all the cards on the table. 

Plus the girl I got from him has been awesome. I’m so thankful for her. Sooo thankful. So so thankful. Then he also calls me from time to time to know how the girl is doing. I mean, how’s that for ‘client care’?

Awesome!!!

Plus what the girl has to pay him back for his agency is really fair. The best I saw. He is not out to rip them off. And it is very important to me to do business with and empower people who are actually human and not greedy!!!

Now because I KNOW the peculiarity and sensitivity of home help matters, I won’t put up his number here. For my own safety too. And of course you know to be led by God. Not Eziaha. You do NOT have to use him. I am just putting a guide here. I trusted God for my help, I believed He would guide me as I prayed, took steps and called and interviewed a LOT until I met Emma and had peace about him and the girl he brought.

So do me a mail eziaha@eziaha.com and then I can give you his number so long as you understand that you are absolutely On Your Own. Thank you very much. 

I’m just helping. But with humans, (and homehelps) there can be risks and I wanna make sure I don’t get into trouble. 

Amen!!!

3. House of Pictures. 

He did my KingDaveed’s one year shoot.

image

I met him in the funniest of ways. I believe it was divine cos God opened my eyes to this random dude just strolling home with a camera on his neck. I had been trusting God for someone affordable to do a home shoot for me. Frankly I was getting exhausted and was going to just take KingDaveed to a studio and take a few shots, which I absolutely HATED!!! But even then, something in me still believed. I wanted a young, christian, patient guy who lived close to my home, and could pop in casually and get the job done. Not just someone who stays in the studio and all.

image

Someone who could go here and there and be creative and patient enough to shoot a baby well. 

I jumped right to him and started rattling (I’m crazy. I know). He must have been taken aback cos he asked me if I really loved pictures like that cos of all the questions I was asking. Long story short, he fit everything I wanted. Plus you don’t wanna know what I paid. It was ridiculous!!! 

Flat out r.i.d.i.c no matter how you look at it. 

Well, he just wanted to help me. Plus he lived in the next estate to mine. 

God took me out at that exact time and made him pass that route he doesn’t pass normally. God totally orchestrated our meet. Oh Jesus loves me. I got my dream photo shoot within my budget. 

image

He was absolutely patient with us all through the shoot. Didn’t complain ONCE!!! He had a cheerful spirit all through. And I was watching him ooo. 

You saw some of the pictures now and you know how long all of that would have taken with all our change of scenes and cloths.

image

Trust me, it was a LONG shoot with a LOT of pictures. 

And even when I had some issues with some of the final pictures, he was willing to oblige me despite the ridic amount I paid ooo. 

image

He specialises in street photography (documentary) but is definitely not limited to it. He shoots events too, birthdays, weddings and all. I proudly recommend him because even his normal rates are affordable. He’s good. And he’s a young guy trying to grow his business. He also does school excursion shots and all. He was on one when I met him. So let’s support growing businesses in Nigeria. 

And hey, if you wanna do a shoot and you need someone to direct it, as in you don’t have those cool ideas, you can holler at me too and I can come help you. At a fee of course. But I’m excited about pictures so tz passion first before money. Especially if it is a baby or a maternity or a pre-wedding shoot.

image

Been there, done that and my ideas are from heaven, trust me. Plus I am fun to have on set.

So again, holler at me and I’ll send you his number

4. Laterna Books. 

image

Oh definitely my NUMERO UNO to buy all my books and Bibles from in Nigeria. It is primarily a Christian bookstore but they also stock other healthy genres. They are based in Lagos but have an online store that delivers anywhere in Nigeria.

image

Ordered online...

I’ve used both and I promise you, customer service doesn’t get any better. Whether you walk into Oko-awo

image

One of my many walk-in buys

or you call to order, the staff are excellent. Gosh, even the delivery agents are excellent and polite. You can tell they pay attention to details. Customer service is almost dead in Nigeria so when you meet businesses that care, you stick to them. Been with Laterna for a really long time, at least 6years and I’ve recruited quite some fans too. Very very wide array of books. The ambience in Laterna is also refreshing. Your spirit just comes alive… Christian music in background, staff who actually KNOW what they have been put there for, and a very very organized structure and layout. Plus their POS actually works which is a BIG deal. They also have a well stocked children store and I usually pity my my friends who are moms and their ATMs when her kids enter there. Haha.

image

It is a kid’s heaven and haven. KingDaveed is definitely going to have shares there. No debate. Moms, epp your kids ehn…

Plus they have PLENTY journals. Yawl know I’m a hoarder collector, right? Almost all my journals have come from them. They also have so many cool stuff that will enrich your reading experience. And they have really cute christian memorabilia you could gift people. Keyrings, stickers, tee shirts, stone frames, etc. All branded with the Word of God. Jeez!!! Then they have Christian messages, movies and music. Original DVDs and CDs ooo.

Wooooh, this story is long. Just call or walk in, and thank me later (with Max Lucado’s study Bible please)

image

Laterna books, 12b/13 Oko awo street, off Adetokunbo Ademola, VI

Phone number 08033014462

Online store www.laternabooks.com

Trust me, you will be glad patronising them. 

So that’s it for Part two. 

Feel free to holler at me if you need a social media plan for your growing business. Or some kinda publicity. We can work something out within your budget.You see my ginger is high. Lol.  I am careful about clients I work with and endorse though. We need to be sure we are doing a wealth transfer INTO the Kingdom of God through His children. Amen!!!

Group hug!!!

God loves yawl like crazy…

image

First time in like 5months lol

E’

PS
Hoping to throw in a post later today or tomorrow. If I saw it before I did KingDaveed’s first birthday post, I would have thrown it in. But hey, this works too. So watch out yawl, especially moms and moms to be. It’s awesome

    Honestly, you are a born sales rep.
    I like the way you describe and endorse them . E be like say make I dey call all of them now now now. Lol. Even though I no stay in Lagos or Abuja or need house helps. But you can be sure that I wil keep all of them in mind for the future. Even lanterna books.
    This isn’t the usual impassive rigid business advertisements. This is personal, and I love it.
    I love your enthusiasm E, and that your posts aren’t one dimensional.
