Why Coworking Space are the Next Best Thing For Entrepreneurs In Lagos

The journey of an entrepreneur is a daunting process and funding can be very difficult especially in a developing country like Nigeria. Ever since the increase of Internet users in Lagos and Nigeria as whole, more and more online businesses have sprung up with a lot of entrepreneurs exploring the digital space to solve hands-on problems. Most of these online businesses would need basic infrastructure to stay alive, even if they are cash-flow positive from day one.

An office space is a basic need for every entrepreneur, either you are working from home, a shared office space, or your own office. When you’re bootstrapping everything from the ground up by yourself with just little cash in the bank, the best would be to opt for a co-working space. Read More

Home Professionals You Should Never Hesitate to Call

There are plenty of home repairs that you can take care of yourself with some simple tools and a little know-how. In fact, it can be fun and empowering to know how to fix minor problems as they arise.

But there are some repairs that are best left to a professional, due to the need for costly, specialized equipment, extensive knowledge or a large work crew. If you try to tackle some of these repairs yourself, you’ll probably end up making things worse or simply putting a band aid on the problem, and it will be more expensive to have a pro come fix it later.

Here are some of the home professionals you should never hesitate to call. Read More

Decorating Ideas to Give Your Home a Farmhouse Feel

Farmhouses carry a certain feeling of nostalgia, even for those of us who didn’t grow up in the village or country-side. If you are fortunate to have had first-hand experience staying or living in a farmhouse, you’ll agree that modern farmhouses are such a beauty to behold and something begging to be experienced again. To bring some of that cozy comfort into your own home, try these design tips:

Sliding Barn Doors

What’s a farm without a barn? You may not have space in your home to put in a loft or ladder, but you can certainly add a sliding barn door to make a bold statement. The door can go on any interior doorway if there is enough space to put runners off to the side. Because visible hardware will look totally natural with a barn door, it doesn’t need to be a “pocket” sliding door. This is good news for you, because it makes it much easier to install. Read More

How to Make the Most of a Tiny Office

The higher you rise in the company ranks, the larger and nicer your office will be. And if you’re just getting your foot in the door and establishing yourself in your chosen industry, you are probably sharing elbow room with a number of other coworkers, renting an office the size of a closet or sitting in a cramped cubicle all day. If you barely have space to put your coffee, you’re not alone. Here’s how to make the most of a tiny office.

Take Stock

To get started, you need to take stock of your office in its current form. Be thorough in evaluating what can stay and what needs to go. If you inherited a desk with the office, maybe that desk is more trouble than it’s worth (too big, namely). Is the chair hard and comfortable, or difficult to scoot back away from the desk? If you have trouble moving around the office in any way, it will seem more cramped. Get a smaller desk and a simple swivel chair for starters. Read More

Tactful Tips for First-Time Tenants and Landlords

Renting your first apartment or house is an exciting turning point in your life. It can also be stressful, since the huge yearly rent (we envy climes where tenants pay on a monthly basis!) often uses up the bulk of your paycheck. And then there’s the fact that you need to adhere to certain rules and policies, as well as seek out your landlord whenever something goes wrong with the property.

You’ve probably heard worrying stories about absentee landlords. However, most aren’t there to scam tenants. Like any business, they’ll only succeed by providing a quality service. You can do your part by being a model tenant. Here are some ways to do just that: Read More

Fraudsters are everywhere. They have been in virtually all field of human endeavour since Adam. The goal isn’t to retire them from their stock in trade.

So, you are finally ready to rent your very first apartment? You feel you are now ready to take on that responsibility?

All Landlords Are Not The Same

As humans, we come in different shapes, sizes, complexion, and temperaments. As our faces are different, so are our character, personalities and biases. The fact that you’ve seen brash and uncompassionate landlords doesn’t mean all landlords are brash and uncompassionate. Read More
