Dear Business Owner, Which Of These Business Challenges Do You Want Solved Immediately?

Dear Business Owner,

Which of the following challenges would you want solved immediately?

1. Marketing

You need your products shown to a wider audience, as you’re fully aware that while you may have your marketing figured out right, nothing else beats your products being seen through a new pair of eyes.

2. Resources to Learn

You understand that for your business to grow, scale or evolve, then you need to keep learning, unlearning and relearning. You’re aware that it’s possible to get stuck if you keep doing the same things the same way, and so you need to keep improving.

However, there’s a huge volcano of knowledge out there, and it can feel overwhelming not knowing where to start.

3. Support

You’re thankful for the backing your friends and family give you (infact without them, your business might not have even kicked off). However, as you mature in business, you realize that doing business alone can be daunting. Alone? Yes, without the support of like-minded business owners that can open the way up for collaborations, can be your accountability partners ( to ensure you don’t deviate from your business goals)

4. Reduced Costs

Wouldn’t it be absolutely Marvelous if these business costs could just miraculously disappear? Lol. We all know that it’s not possible at all. To run a business, money has to drop, Right? Branding, Printing costs, logistics, and so on could drill holes in one’s pockets. What if these costs could be slashed so the funds can be diverted to other things?

5. /Exposure/ Being Well Positioned

There are global, continental and national institutions that are charged to recognize and honour and support hard-working and amazing creative indigenous businesses. They can find your brand only when you are well-positioned. For instance, the Nigerian Export Promotion Council, Bank of Industry, Lioness of Africa, ITC She Trades, Nigerian Export and Import Bank (NEXIM) are always looking for ways to support creatives.

What to consider when planning a collaboration

Effectively, change is almost impossible without industry-wide collaboration, cooperation, and consensus.

-Simon Mainwaring

A business collaboration is an excellent way of getting things done for your business, especially when you are looking to leverage on the audience and resources of other businesses to actualize your business dreams or idea.

Collaborations could throw in a lot of relief in solving a business challenge. They also present opportunities to build the network you need to massively grow your business.
In truth “one tree cannot make a forest”. However, just before you decide to go all in to enjoy the benefits of collaboration, there are certain questions you should not only ask yourself but also have well defined answers for.


    Collaborations are not “parasitic” schemes where one party spends and the other party grows.

    Rather, they are more “symbiotic” in operation and are mutually beneficial to both parties at the long run.

    So, while you look after your own interests, you also want to think of what benefits the other party would gain partnering with you.

    Make sure the value you’re offering is one you’d like to receive if the roles were reversed.


The pressure to “flow with the tide” when it comes to working with others could escalate. This might force you as a partner to agree decisions and ideas that could turn out to be detrimental to your own business goals.

What are your business goals? Does your intending partner have similar goals?
Knowing all of these will ensure that you both are in the same league.



A whole lot of excitements envelopes the thought of “available resources” when it comes to collaborating with the “big fishes”.

Yes, you want to get right to work and finally bring that idea to fruition, you want to start with that fantastic project that no one has done before, Nice!

before you go all out and invest your time and resources into an idea with your collaborators, you might want to try it out on a smaller scale and see how it performs.
Doing that will help you determine if its something you want to do in the long run.


Collaborations can be time consuming, especially with a poorly selected strategy.

It becomes a serious risk when targets have been set and deadlines for delivery have been put in place and you cannot put in the extra number of hours required to pull it off.

This could lead to frustration and ultimately loss of money and investments on both ends at the long run.
So, determine beforehand, how much time you are willing to spend (planning and preparation), and how much of your regular business time you are willing to spare.


This is the most important part of any form of business agreement. All parties are to be well and duly informed of the legal implications of their actions in business. This is to be done by a lawyer.

When collaborations fail, all parties tend to go emotional about loss and hence things could go awry between both parties. That is why it is very important that both parties come to a legal agreement binding all parties involved and the course of action that should be taken as pertaining to the existing business law of the country at that particular time.

After considering these factors, you’re well on your way to planning a collaboration that will hugely boost your business.

Looking for quality Boots made in Nigeria?

As far as footwears are concerned, boots always seem to get more work done than regular shoes. While shoes are busy arguing semantics in a boardroom, boots are out in the garage actually doing work.

Boots are relatively versatile, as they can suit both casual and formal styles and in addition to comfort, they also provide good support for the feet.

Over the years, a few things have been found to be the true points of attraction to quality boots – Craftsmanship, how long these brands have been making products, overall rebellion against cheap widely popular footwear that has no soul, no longevity, and no visual appeal.

Unfortunately, boot lovers have to resort to seeking for renown brands abroad and have to wait out long periods of time, and also pay outrageous shipping fees before these products can be delivered in their own country.


BootsbyMetal is a boots brand that not only prides in the fact that it is fast becoming the trademark for quality boots over the years, but also in the fact that it is made in Nigeria.

BootsbyMetal boasts of world class quality products and knows exactly what to consider when producing for all classes of customers.

All Sizes

One of the major concerns for people with under and beyond average-sized feet when considering boots is if their sizes are currently in stock. Nobody wants to get a pair of kicks that lacks or shoots a couple of inches because they can’t readily find their size. All sizes can be purchased readily from any of the retail stores and in very rare cases where you want something even more fitted and streamlined, you could opt for the Custom Build option.

Comfortable insoles

The insole is the inner part of the shoe that touches the sole of the foot. A good insole supports each part of the foot but remains flexible and adapts to the foot’s movement.

You can test for comfortable insoles by walking around, standing on the tip of your toes to see if your toes have enough space to stretch out without being pushed to the tip and top of the shoe.

These boots have been specially patterned to grip the heel just right so you can walk comfortably.


The flexibility of the outside and top of the boot are important, as those parts also affect comfort. Quality Boots must be flexible enough to bend slightly but not so much as to bend in half. Also, there is support for the arch section of the boots which not only enhances fluid movement but also helps maintain balance as well.


Quality Materials to suit your Lifestyle

These locally made boots are made from different materials such as Leather, from full-grain to nubuck, animal skin, or synthetic fabrics such as cordura, which are resistant to abrasions.

Leather boots soften and mold to your feet as you use them, but they require extra care to keep the leather from cracking.

Meanwhile, synthetic material is easier to maintain but usually lacks the classic elegance leather boots offer.

BootsbyMetal offers a wide range of options to suit your lifestyle and your willingness to look after the material.

As we proceed further into the year, some may choose to refresh their style, including giving boots a try and others may choose to try out a new brand. Here are some good reasons to get yourself a pair of Metal boots:

• Top Notch Quality
• Affordability
• Easy purchase with local currency
• Custom Build Services
• Wide range of choices
• No time delays in purchase and delivery

How the new finance bill affects businesses in Nigeria

The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari not too long ago signed the Finance bill into law.

The Finance bill subsequently amended to “The Finance Act” saw to it that Value Added Tax (VAT) formerly 5% was increased to 7.5% for any product and services sold in Nigeria.

The President in a bid to shed light on the decision had explained that:
“This Finance Bill has five strategic objectives in terms of achieving incremental but necessary changes to our fiscal laws”

These objectives are:

  • Promoting fiscal equity by mitigating instances of regressive taxation
  • Reforming domestic tax laws to align with global best practice
  • Introducing tax incentives for investments in infrastructure and capital markets
  • Supporting Micro, Small and Medium-sized businesses in line with our Ease of Doing Business Reforms; and Raising Revenues for Government.

The new law states that small businesses with a turnover of less than N25 million are to be exempted from Companies Income Tax, while it lowers the tax rate for companies making up to N100 million from 30 percent to 20 percent.

This is expected to come as a relief to the lot of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria, most of which already struggle to stay afloat in a hostile business environment.

What the increase in VAT really means

When the rate was 5%, it means that for a price of ₦1000 the buyer will pay an extra of ₦50 as VAT to government making the bill a total of ₦1050. If the item is to be used or for consumption, then that is where the VAT story ends.

But if the Item is to be sold, or used to produce something else which will be sold at say₦1500, then VAT of ₦75 needs to be charged, so the buyer pays ₦1575.

Since the first buyer payed VAT of ₦50 (input VAT) when the initial item was bought, he/she is entitled to deduct it from the VAT of ₦75 just charged (output VAT) and only pay the difference of ₦25 ( ₦75 – ₦50) to the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).

The above scenario is the same but the VAT has now been increased from 5 percent to 7.5 percent.

A Positive Effect?

Small and Medium scale enterprises in Nigeria are starved of capital as poor access to finance constitutes a major constraint for businesses.

Similar challenges encountered by the sector include the high cost of doing business and multiplicity of taxes, a problem the new bill looks to eliminate.

In analysis of the bill, some industry players had this to say:

“The initiative is laudable and the modifications to the fiscal rules around taxation are clearly aimed at creating an enabling business environment and alleviating the tax burden for small and medium enterprises”
-KPMG (accounting firm)

“With unrestricted access into the bank accounts of companies, businesses are now open to paying taxes more than ever. And to reduce tax evasion”
-Tayo Oluwole (Tax consultant)

“It is clear the amendments that the Act makes to existing tax laws will have a “significant impact” on businesses operating in the country.”
-Andersen Tax (website)

In consideration of standard of living and ease of doing business, the Finance Bill seeks to cushion the harsh effects of the 7.5% VAT by introducing other palliative measures.

For example, stamp duty on receipts became ₦50 for every transaction worth ₦10,000 and above, instead of the ₦1,000 threshold earlier used by banks.

Also, for Company Income Tax (CIT), businesses with a turnover of less than N25 million will be exempted.

CIT for businesses with sales of between 25 to 100 million falls from 30% to 20%. Also,businesses which pay their taxes on time will get a reprieve of 2%.


What do you think of the new finance bill? Have you started implementing it in your business? I would love to know!


Entering the Export Market: What you should know About Trade Missions


Trade missions are an important indicator of expansion. They are crucial for creative businesses within Africa willing to enter new markets, mainly to facilitate, streamline and optimize the process that must be followed to export to many countries.

Generally organized by governments, in conjunction with trade groups, trade missions allow a lot of business to be done within a short period.

Why go on Trade Missions?

The trade mission allows you to gain better market intelligence to expand your markets.

How do you get the most out of Trade Missions?

TradeMission Meetings

First, clearly define your expectations for participating on the trip. (Be sure to write specific, simple and quantifiable objectives).

The second most important criterion to get the most out of a trade mission is to provide your mission leader with a one-page profile. This should be sent as far in advance as possible. One page is preferred as it can be faxed, emailed and handed out in pre-mission recruiting activity.

What should your profile contain?

The first item of your profile should clearly state a one-paragraph description of your company.

Second on the list should be a paragraph explaining, in lay terminology, your product or service.

Next, you should include an explanation of the type of company and person you need to meet with.

The fourth item to include is a brief list of your most important expectations.

This one-page profile makes it easier for the mission leader to understand how to best help you.
It will also be a constant reminder to keep you focused and on track before and during your mission.


In summary, a well-organized and clearly defined trade mission can be one of your best marketing and sales tools to help you grow your creative business internationally.
