WHY WE MOVED BACK TO BLOGGER FROM WORDPRESS!

We are back on blogger, my dear readers and here is why we made the choice to return! While it is nice having a blog on wordpress, we realized that we spent more time trouble shooting our blog issues when dealing with various hosts; starting with being on a shared server to going on a virtual private server! Okay lets explain what that means:  Why we moved to blogger istock photo If you host your blog or site on a shared server, you would have to constantly pray none of the other SITES hosted on the shared server  get hacked or have other issues because guess what? Your site would go down too! Next we moved  on to a virtual private server, more issues dealing with tech issues; While we are girl geeks and believe it or not design wordpress themes, this is the last thing we need to be worried about when building a blogging business. This was not the plan for blogging! It feels great just having to blog rather than spending most of our time and dollars fixing or calling the

WHY STEVE JOBS WORE BLACK TURTLE NECKS: THE ISSEY MIYAKE FASHION CONNECTION!

By Isy Coker Not only was he a visionary, a lover of art Steve Jobs also loved fashion and now we know why he wore black turtle neck jerseys designed by guess who? Issey Miyake! Who also happens to be a favorite designer of ours! Did you know Steve Jobs actually owned over a hundred of the black turtle necks? No kidding here is how it was reported From Issacson's book, as reported by Gawker: On a trip to Japan in the early 1980s, Jobs asked Sony's chairman Akio Morita why everyone in the company's factories wore uniforms. He told Jobs that after the war, no one had any clothes, and companies like Sony had to give their workers something to wear each day. Over the years, the uniforms developed their own signatures styles, especially at companies such as Sony, and it became a way of bonding workers to the company. "I decided that I wanted that type of bonding for Apple," Jobs recalled. Sony, with its appreciation for style, had gotten the famous designer Issey Miyak

African Business Dream: Lisa Folawiyo featured on BBC!

Nigeria's fashion designer Lisa Folawiyo's shiny clothes have captivated people from Lagos to Cape Town, London, Paris, New York and Hollywood. She is the founder and creative director of Jewel by Lisa, a brand that specialises in Ankara textiles, the vibrant wax-resist dyed fabrics characteristic of West Africa and widely used across the continent. These clothes, originally based on traditional Indonesian batik and formerly known as Dutch wax, have been popular in Nigeria for generations. "Our mothers, grandmothers and probably great-grandmothers have worn this fabric," Ms Folawiyo told the BBC series African Dream. But, as though they were not already bright enough, she decided to embellish them with beads, sequins and crystals, all sewn by hand, and the chic combination became an instant success. "I can confidently say that Jewel by Lisa was the originator of the embellished Ankara which we see today everywhere," the designer said. "I have a huge cli

TO STEVE JOBS LAST WORDS

Dear Steve Jobs, Thanks so much for the inspiration; I wrote about how I came across apple's Macintosh in  college in Silicon Valley, like I said back then, this was my first computer; I loved the look of this cute little computer, it is so funny back then even the computer lab attendant believed that the apple line of computers were on the way out but boy was he in for a surprise! Steve, your passing is very personal to me because I grew up and invested in every product you released once you returned to Apple; not because it was the latest gadget but because of the  look and the vision from you . Steve . The attendant had laughed at what a lost  company apple was back then Steve, but you know what I really believed the company would thrive, investing the little I had into a few stocks I could buy. You returned Steve, you came back!  Once you came back every thing changed; Product after product I followed  giddily  like a star struck tech groupie! I loved the product because you in

BUSINESS TIME: MEET THE 29 YEAR OLD FOUNDER OF THE FLYING DOCTORS!

by Isy Coker Yes there is such a business as the flying doctors of Nigeria. Here is what they do, you get injured and need to get to the hospital; you get airlifted.  This is certainly a much needed service, as we all know, driving through Lagos traffic when critically ill could cost you your life!

This same situation also happened to the founder of the flying doctors sister! Here is her story culled from an interview she had earlier with JideSalu: interviewer: the unfortunate tragic death of your 12 year old sister had an impact on you. In what way, if I may ask? Dr Ola: That had a profound impact on me. I would have never started the Flying Doctors if I had not been through that experience. It’s always ‘someone else’s problem’ till it becomes your own. I took it as a personal call to action. Interviewer: There was something a statement you
