BUSINESS: COME FOR THE MONEY; STAY FOR THE COMMUNITY

Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people- Steve Jobs.

It is a well-known fact that the main aim of dabbling in a business of your own or someone else’s is to make money. Indeed, making a profit is the drive behind every business. And this aim controls both the operations and principles of every organisation. In so much that entrepreneurs and employees employ various strategies just to get customers’ attention. However, in trying to sell products or services to customers, we mostly end up pushing them away. So, many organisations out there with the drive to make the most do not, in fact, draw the attention of the targets. The question is why is this so? Why do businesses with potentials suffer when they could as well thrive? Well, going through the success stories of various successful people brings the answer to fore. And the answer has to do with relationships, the community.

Before we go any further, it would be good to look into one successful uprising company. And that’s VTpass. VTpass is an online payment platform that allows for ease and speed while paying everyday bills. So, rather than change locations trying to pay electricity bills or tv subscriptions. You can easily pay these bills on www.vtpass.com. Again, you can renew your data subscription as well as buy airtime on www.vtpass.com. Better still, the new VTpass mobile app for Android serves this purpose well enough. You even get more ease and convenience with its more user-friendly, accessible features.

People are the core of every business. Businesses are based on relationships and relationships on people. I would go to an average restaurant run by amazing people over an outstanding restaurant run by awful people- Marcus Lemonis.

More than profit-making, what defines us at VTpass is our strong drive to build and maintain relationships with our customers. It is not enough to want our customers’ attention without giving them as much attention. So, as a brand, we believe in putting ourselves in a position that strengthens our relationships. This is because we believe that what stands any business out is the ability to start for the money and stay for the community.

And really, this should be a viable model for as many as own good businesses out there. It is quite tempting to want to keep pushing for the money. But looking beyond that and working with your customers to be better edges you more towards profit. So, it works this way. You have a very great idea. Of course, you want to get it out there and make money out of it. Good thing. But you should be ready to build a relationship with your customers and get them to like you as much as they like your business. And yes, when the profit seems to be hanging in the air, this is not a time to pull back engagement. Rather, you should make your involvement stronger. You should stay, and this will definitely get the attention of many. So yes, starting a business with profit in mind is a good thing. But continuing a business for the sake of becoming better for your customers and being their lifelong friend is the best.

Profit in business comes from repeat customers. Customers that boast about your project or service.  And that bring friends with them- Edward Demming.

GREAT FILE MANAGEMENT APPS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER

You’ve ever been to the library or study of a person who lived in the early twentieth century? Then, you would be sure to see a lot of documents and books stacked in corners. Well, this was because stacking and storing, that was the only way to file management. But now, the case is different. It is rarely possible to see people exchange ideas or information via hard copy files. Rather, most information are usually online. People write and send files to one another via email, whatsapp and what have you. Indeed, this is an excellent improvement, considering the fact that it saves trees, paper and it definitely saves space. But having a lot of file on your laptop or phone can be overwhelming. This is especially if you are one who deals with a lot of documents. Most people have their files scattered all over their devices.

And honestly, trying to find a form or file on your laptop can be very maddening. This is even not the real problem. Because whatever electronic devices we use are susceptible to damage and failure. Most people eventually lose very vital files and information. Passwords, certifications etc, can easily be lost. So, how can one possibly save these and keep them safe for as long as possible? Well, the answer is simple, by saving them on the cloud. So, what does this means? This simply means you get them to be on virtual space. So that whatever happens to your personal devices, you still have your files in check. Now, there are certain apps that helps you do just that. And here they are,

  1. Google Keep

This is a viable way of keeping your files and passwords and everything else. By registering with Google Keep, you have a personal place where you can copy an paste your details and open them on your discretion. So, without your password, no one can access your documents.

2. Color Note

Color Note is yet another app where you can keep things you don’t want any other person to see. With a strong password, all your documents are safe. And even if you lose your phone, you can simply install the app on your new phone and get your things back.

3. Telegram

Although a social media platform, Telegram is one app that enables you to store and keep things safely. For every Telegram account, you can have your own personal account, that is only meant to store in your information. And the good thing is whatever happens, your Telegram account always stays secure. So, you can easily retrieve your documents.

4. Google Docs

This is yet another excellent file management app from Google. It has so many features. Not only can you compose on it, you can save and share in whatever file format you want. And your files are automatically saved on Google Drive once you are online.

5. Email

You know what they say, the best place to keep anything is in your email. Going ahead to save certain information in the draft of your email is not so much a bad idea. But please, do make sure you do not leak your password to someone you don’t trust. And do log out of your email as soon as you are done. Also, remember to sort out the information on your email. The fact that you receive a whole lot of other messages can be confusing.

There is yet one app you should consider downloading. And that’s the VTpass mobile app for Android. You ever need to pay your bills with the speed of light? Then, the VTpass mobile app can make that very possible. So, you can pay  your electricity bills, TV subscriptions, airtime and data all in three easy steps.

Bob Dylan is a Nobel Laureate. But then, he still could not miss out on the festive period of Christmas. And so he sang this song to commemorate the season.

Angels we have heard on High

SURE SIGNS YOUR PHONE IS INFECTED WITH A VIRUS

A phone, like every precious possession, form a very important part of our lives. And like everything else, they are prone to damage, rot and sicknesses. But the worst thing that could happen to a phone is having a virus. And not knowing that your phone has a virus is even more dangerous as it gives room for loss of control and information. Similarly, planning to call someone only to discover there is no airtime is yet another frustrating situation. You can always fix this problem with www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com on your phone, you get easy access to pay for your airtime and data services. You also get to settle your electricity bills and cable tv subscriptions conveniently. But the one thing you cannot easily fix is a virus on your phone. Because first, you have to know it is there. So how do you know there is a virus?

First, you must know that malware is used to gain access to the private accounts of smartphones. As the phone is a passage into a lot of personal data, it is good you try to keep it safe. Because this malware works secretly, it might be hard to detect their presence. But with these signs, you should be able to tell

  1. When apps begin to crash: Let’s say you are chatting on Whatsapp, and the application suddenly stops. And then this goes on over and over again. You should know there is a malware.
  2. A lot of pop-ups: Now this is one sure way to know. When you see a lot of unnecessary pop-up adverts coming right up to the screen of your phone. And then going ahead to interrupt whatever you are doing, there is a virus.
  3. Battery drain: Have you ever had to see your phone battery drain completely right after you charged it, then there is a malware.
  4. Data exhaust: Viruses are data exhaust, they can soak up on someone’s data as fast as a straw. So when next you seem to think your data has gone faster than it should. Then know who to blame.

The signs of a virus breakout apply to all phones but the treatments are different. So, do make sure you go to the phone repairer before the virus sucks up on too much. VTpass offers a viable payment system that does not fail. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can pay for your airtime, electricity bills and data. You can also renew your cable TV subscriptions.

A HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM VTPASS

VTpass wishes everyone who is privileged to sit around a table of roasted turkey or other sumptuous meal and say thanks a happy Thanksgiving. There is nothing worth thankful for than being alive and having your family and friends all around you. And what’s a Thanksgiving without sharing? Well, VTpass has made sharing, even more, fun and convenient through the online payment platform, www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can easily share airtime and data with your friend. You can even afford to pay their electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions and so much more without having to see them at all. Really, this is more than any plastic-wrapped turkey you can afford to give them.

Talking about roasted turkey; this week, Donald Trump performed the obligatory before-thanksgiving ceremony where he got to pardon a lucky turkey and spare him the burden of coming under the knife.

The turkey which weighs about 36 pounds was given official pardon while the rest are left to bend their neck to the Thanksgiving celebration. Honestly, except for the fact that it is practised by one of the world’s powerful nations, this tradition sounds quite bizarre but it has quite a formidable heritage supporting it. Something that truly deserves a telling over and over again.

It all started with Tad, the fine son of our good president, Abraham Lincoln. In 1863, a turkey had been brought to Lincoln’s home for Christmas dinner. But young Tad took a liking for the turkey and pleaded that its life should be spared. Following this, the tradition of keeping a turkey alive has somehow managed to slip into modern civilisation.

But at first, it was not quite a binding rule to spare these turkeys. In fact, dead and roasted turkeys were usually offered as gifts to presidents during the 1870s. A Rhode Island poultry farmer Horace Vose was very accountable in this regard. Called the poultry king, Vose’dead and roasted Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys started with President Ulysses S. Grant and continued till he died in 1913. Even after his death, the “turkey gifts” were established as a customary practice and an emblem of goodness.

It was not until 1947 that the National Turkey Federation and the Poultry and Egg National Board gave live turkeys to the then President Harry Truman. Somehow, President Truman got pretty excited about this and photographed himself with the adorable turkey weighing 42 pounds before slapping it unto his Christmas plate. But already, the iconic image stuck out like a thumb in the minds of many.

President John Kennedy in 1963 took a cue from this and pardoned a turkey given him for a celebration. The president’s choice to offer clemency to the turkey might be slightly influenced by the sign that stuck around the turkey’s head which read, “Good eating, Mr President.” To this, Mr President simply replied, “We’ll just let this one grow.”

After Kennedy, this sparing a turkey’s life, it was pretty much becoming a campaign so that President Richard Nixon went on to send off the birds offered to him as gifts to the local petting zoo. Perhaps he didn’t feel right sending off the birds to a straightforward death in the presidential kitchen. President Ronald Reagan followed this trend, sending off Charlie, his birdie gifts to the Frying Pan petting zoo, but not without mentioning that the turkey had been pardoned.

November 26, 2008
George Bush (C) pardons a turkey named Pumpkin

Well, George H. W. Bush on the 17th day of November 1989 came all out to declare the pardoning of turkeys. He said “let me assure you, and this fine tom turkey…he’s granted a presidential pardon as of right now.”

And true to Bush’s words, several lucky turkeys have received pardon every November at the hands of benevolent American presidents.

Wow, this is quite a story. It tells of the making of history by merely sharing and offering gifts. You too can make a good impression on your folks by sharing so much love with your family. And this you can do with www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can in three easy steps share airtime and data with anyone.
