VIDEO TRAILER: [Micro-Business Opportunity] Make Money Using Peels of Pineapples and Nine 9 Other Fruits
Invite me to facilitate my FREE ONE Hour Talk titled “H...ow to Make Drinks You Can Sell from Peels of Pineapples and Nine (9) Other Fruits”
I developed this technique in July 2013, while on the campus of Benin Republic’s National University in Calavi – a town outside Cotonou.
The attached video trailer provides details...
It’s On-Demand. Any day…Even Sundays. Just invite me…IT’s FREE.
Students, Unemployed, Retirees, Housewives, Restaurant/Bar Owners, Farm CEOs etc
Every group will be offered my Step-By-Step Guide PDF titled "How to Make Drinks You Can Sell from Pineapple Peels" ...
The step-by-step guide is actually based on the real-life production process I use in producing the Non-Fermented version of my Pineapple Peel Based drink, which someone in Calavi (Benin Republic) has named "Boisson Tayo"(French for "Tayo's Drink").
Even the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) advocates home based food drinks production for people with limited budgets. So much so that it published a massive PDF best practice guide for interested individuals/groups to use! (I send each person a download link to the PDF)

Last Sunday (26th March 2017), I sent a Power Point slideshow with the photos shown below, to the facilitator of the "Cosmetic Makeup and Gele Tying" training w...orkshop being attended by my daughters - with the following message:
Photos of (the girls') Makeup Practice On Each Other - Sun 26th March 2017
Please let’s have your feedback.
Yesterday’s attempts were not so good. They kept fighting each other. But today, went better
They will work on each other’s faces early tomorrow morning, before the class begins – as you have advised on Friday."

The instructor later noted to me, when we met on Monday, that the 2 girls needed to better draw the brows to include a distinct "arch" and "tail". They have since gotten much better at doing that - but have been told to do lots more practice at home this weekend.
Graduation Day at the 2 week Cosmetic Makeup and Gele Tying Workshop [Re: Empower Your Daughter to be Her Own Boss With Minimal Resources Via Vocation She Can B...uild on to Excel]
Yesterday was "graduation" day for my 8 and 11 year old daughters (and their much older fellow trainees) at the venue of the 2 week “Cosmetic Makeup and Gele Tying” workshop organized by the Lagos State Government.
I'm still suffering from cumulative fatigue: I've practically been out of circulation over the past 2.5 weeks taking them from home to the venue and STAYING with them till evening, to bring them back from Monday to Friday.
But it felt all worth it seeing them carryout their final assignments of doing makeup on the faces of the "clients" they were asked to bring along.
I took the photo below, outside the event hall about 30 minutes after the presentation ceremony had ended and item 7 (chop-chop) was ongoing.

To make this possible for them, I've (VERY gladly) given up my normal work-from-home routine to take them down DAILY to attend what has been the first week of a 2 week long practical training workshop in Cosmetic Makeup and Gele Tying, here in Lagos.
African Parents Need to Teach Their Kids About Their Rich Ancestry & Contributions to Civilization, So They Don’t Grow Up Feeling Inferior to Other Races!
On Su...nday 22nd April 2017, I suggested that my kids wear to church, the above Adire outfits I'd bought for them the day before, when we'd traveled from Lagos to the African Drums Festival venue in Kuto, Ogun State.
To my surprise, the 4 older ones protested that they would get laughed at by peers for wearing "strange" outfits, opting instead for their usual western themed attires.
BUT after I’d told them about the history of Adire fabric and its international reputation, they relented.
However, their initial reactions impressed upon me the need to make deliberate EDUCATION on African traditions, cultures, values and the History of Ancient African Civilization of my kids a MAJOR focus of my parenting efforts.
If someone told African kids all these things and taught them about THEIR RICH ANCESTRY- of which a lot is being re-discovered even now by today's archeologists and researchers, the young African would stop feeling inferior !

T-Boy (my nickname for Tayo Solagbade Jr. - the rest of the family calls him DAVID) is the family's CHIEF TASTER whenever we do our various baking/cooking/drink...s making projects.
Here you see him tasting (with butter) the fresh hot soft and fluffy bread produced by his big sisters (supported/led by their big brothers - especiallty Chika and Emeka).
It's been amazing to see that we can actually producec excellent looking and tasting home made bread using our Charcoal Stove and Pot i.e. no oven!!
See photo of him holding loaves packed into sealed nylon bags at https://www.facebook.com/TemiandOluomasCharcoalStoveBaking/photos/a.224567691225138.1073741829.223656374649603/298022000546373/?type=3
See another photo showing how we used cake cups to bake the bread loaves:
See a photo of one of our very first attempts at baking home made bread. It was not pretty - but we learnt from it.
Note that EVERYTHING we did was learnt by downloading and watching various Youtube videos by experts based in places like France and the USA.
Eventually, the recipe and techniques described by a French chef were what worked for us - though we did our own tweaking to get it just right. It was LOTS of fun and the kids led all the way.
My role was just to supply money and make suggestions etc -for the most part.
My girls having their first independent GO at making Chin Chin snacks. They have since learnt to bake Pizzqa, Cookies, Bread etc using their trademark Charcoal ...stove and post, as well as gas cooker. These are skill that will stay with them for life!

To Succeed, We Must Help Ourselves - the Government Cannot Help Us
Let's stop wasting valuable time waiting for government (or indeed "God") to do things for us... that we can - with focus, determination and persistence - do by and for ourselves.
I refuse to live my life complaining about what I lack because some government failed to do what it promised to do. Instead, I wake up daily with the mental attitude backed by unshakable faith that ALL I need will be brought within my reach at the right time by the Creator, if I take regular/daily action towards it.
[WORKSHOP] How to Make Drinks You Can Selling Using Peels of Pineapples - Lagos based NGO invites Tayo Solagbade to Train 30 Members
During the past week, I had... a meeting with the founder/CEO of a Lagos based NGO engaged in vocational skills training across learning institutions (up to tertiary level) in Nigeria.
He had learnt of my one day workshop on drinks making using Pineapple Peels, from a partner of www.discovercotonou.com (my new travel produict/service website brand) and got interested.
"NB: Time NEVER RUNS Out for ANYONE
Refuse to hurry your kids through school based on fears their peers will leave them behind. This is another silly myth that people habitually use to scare children and their parents to stick with the school system no matter what they discover is WRONG with it!
I’ve said it in past articles on this theme: Children are not catfish babies or poultry chicks that NEED to be reared age groups to adulthood. Maybe back in the industrial age, it was important to move along the levels in schooling with your age mates/peers.
Today, however, the reality is different. The truth is that some
people who finished schooling 5 years ago are still, right now in the labour market, job searching, while those they left behind in school have since left school, and gotten good jobs, or started business ventures, thereby overtaking them in life!
Mark Zuckerberg is today RICHER than virtually ALL those SENIORS who finished high school ahead of him. So is Richard Branson. Let no one tell you your child is running out of time. Life is not a competition with anyone. Focus on ensuring s/he gets the RIGHT EDUCATION!" - Tayo K. solagbade, from my 62 page paper titled “Schooling Is a Means to an End and NOT an End In Itself”

Gbam! Gbam!! Gbam!!!
This write quoted by Femi has NAILED the ROOT CAUSE of the problem of a LACK of critical thinking skills that RETROGRESSES us in Nigeria. And to think that our kids start school EARLIEST in the world. In Nigeria, we have kids under 1 year starting school - and being given take home assignments. Yet, we are notorious for being copycats and consumers of what others invent and innovate. So our LONG hours and days of schooling seem to be ONLY for show. Yeye dey smell!!
Ours is a society where books are unavailable in schools but some of the most vibrant publishing presses are run by the church. They issue out books containing ...magical tales until impressionable minds are convinced that science is the white man’s indulgence, that some supernatural realities exist beyond the natural and we will never know. In that kind of social context, how can you have a society where vibranium is a thing let alone have the citizenry that understands what to do with it?...Abimbola Adelakun Punch 8/3/2018
[RECOMMENDED] How Schools Are Killing Creativity – by By Line Dalile, 14-year-old student and writer @ huffingtonpost dot com
This 14 year old lady hit the nail... right on its head with this piece about how conventional schools are killing creativity.
Every parent should read her article shared here to understand why YOU need to take action to CHANGE the traditional schooling that you’re letting your kids gets exposed to.
It WILL DO THEM more harm than good in the long run.
If a 14 year old girl GETS IT, I worry for you, if you – as an adult – still do NOT get it after reading her article [If you’re a child being sent to school, read her article and demand that your parents take action to help you avoid the dangers she points out in it.]
