HAVE YOU EVER BEEN STUCK in an elevator with the CEO of a company you have been dying to meet?

Have you ever been sited on the same table next to a guy/girl you have been dying to talk to? 

You should actually picture the scenario in your head. If you find yourself in this situation, what are you going to say? 

Most of the time we are overwhelmed. Before we even recover from the realization of the sheer magnitude of our luck, the Chief Executive gets off on his floor or your table partner turns his/her back, to talk to someone else on the table.

As a young business person, being PREPARED is Key. But more important than being prepared is being able to deliver in a way that will capture your audience in a space of 2mins (approx). Seems like very little time doesn’t it? But the reality of today is that the world is fast moving and people only pay attention to the UNIQUE and DIFFERENT.

Its global entrepreneurship week (14th to 18th Nov) and it is my humble belief that the SME’s (small and medium enterprise)in every field will play a strong role in the solving of Nigeria’s unemployment issues, either as employer or employee. Running a small business is tough, especially for young people all over the world, and you need all the support you can get, from investors, partners, customers etc. Don’t ever take for granted that you have a good product or service that will sell itself, always be prepared to sell your product in a unique and creative way, at every opportunity you will find, that will spark the interest of your audience and If you need any help Developing an “Elevator Pitch” or Creatively Selling your Product or Service to assure great ROI please contact White Rabbit Global Concept on 08037135829

My home girl is getting married.

It’s so romantic how her fiancĂ© proposed to her. It came as a total surprise. Yes she knew that the relationship was going to end in marriage, but she didn’t know he was so ready to do the big “P”. Anyways, my friend wasn’t ready for her big day5months ago when she was proposed to and her reason might seem fickle to you but not to her. She wasn’t her perfect weight, her skin wasn’t glowing and her front hair had chopped off (damn lace wig).

So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I ran into her a couple of days ago, she is looking trim, her skin is glowing and she has a FULL head of HAIR. WOW

WHAT's The Secret????

Shea Butter, Sheer Magic

Shea Butter is becoming increasingly popular in the natural body care and cosmetic industries for good reason. It has been used for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing and healing properties, where it has been used to protect and condition skin which has been damaged by the sun and wind. Shea Butter is an intense moisturizer for dry skin, and is a wonderful product for revitalizing dull or dry skin on the body or scalp. It promotes skin renewal, increases the circulation, and accelerates wound healing. It is also beneficial for the treatment of many different conditions, such as:
*Dry skin *Stretch marks *Itchy skin, *skin rashes, *Eczema, *Dermatitis *Sunburn *Small skin wounds *Damaged skin *Rough skin (such as on feet) *Insect bites*Muscle aches, fatigue, and tension *Wrinkles and signs of ageing *Chapped skin from cold weather *Dry or over processed hair *Diaper rash*Skin allergies *Frost bite etc.....
Interesting right????

Barka d Sallah People

Barka d Sallah to all our numerous Readers

Its a long weekend because of the monday and tuesday addition(Bankers must be happy) so endeavour to enjoy yourself, be hospitable, give the kids a treat but whatever you do, do your best to stay safe in the city of Abuja and avoid areas that we have been warned about.

All the recreational centers in sure will have a crowd this period so im certain they will be fun to visit for Adults and kids alike. The Movies, The Game alleys. the Amusement Parks etc.....

But if you are on a budget this period you can pack a picnic and head to theMillennium Park, just opposite the Transcorp hilton, rent a Mat for N200 - N500 (depending on size) and have a great time with your family or friends. its good for bonding or people watching too and there is always something exciting going on....

im gon' be crawling around the city so if you see me pass by, holla at your girl...

Enjoy your celebrations.....

DEAR CITY CRAWLER: Tips for our Readers.....

I compiled a couple of questions that were sent to the City Crawler Mail Box and I hope it will be helpful for our other readers.

Dear Abuja City Crawler
I was lucky to get information on a land for sale in a very highbrow area of Abuja. It is ridiculously affordable for where it is located. I am a bit skeptical because I have heard of all kinds of scams that happen in the FCT especially with real estate. Please where can I confirm the authenticity of the C of O.
Segun, Utako.

Dear Segun,
Information like that is hard to come by so ill say lucky you. You are right to be skeptical and you have taken the best step seeking this information. The Agency that handles this is AGIS and its located at No. 4 Peace Drive,Garki Abuja. 234-7070271909 email Goodluck.

Hello City Crawler,

I live in one of the high rise buildings In wuse and I have two sons (4 and 2). This might sound funny, but I would love to play “Monkey Post” football with my boys like my dad did with me when I was a kid. My building is really restrictive, please can CC suggest somewhere I can take them to play?

from Gabe.

dear Gabe,

You live in wuse, you are in luck. There are recreational parks spread around the city that caters to that sort of thing, but ultimately you can head to millennium park, lots of space and you might find other dads with the same idea and you guys can form a team. Good luck

hello city crawler,

I would like to hang out with my girls every once in a while, but I have kids. Please where can I go that ill have fun and the kids too will have a great time?


dear hauwa

If you have small kids, wonderland and Maitama amusement park. For older kids, you can go to the Dome in central area, they have lots of games and a great bowling alley where not only they will enjoy but you and your girls as well.

Hello city crawler,

I don’t live in Abuja, but I am around very often for business and I usually wish to unwind after a hard day or have celebratory drinks with partners and clients after a deal is closed. Please I would like to know what the entry requirement is for clubs in Abuja because they only seem to allow people they see on a regular basis? Thanks


dear anonymous,

Looking sharp and tipping the bouncers at the gate goes a long way, but you can just make it easier and get a membership card, most of the clubs in the city use this.

Dear city crawler, 

My Sunday afternoons after church is most boring, please any activity you can suggest to vibe up the day before work starts again Monday.

from nicole.

Dear Nicole,

My friends and I use to have a lil fishing expedition every sunday afternoon to abacha barrack before it got bombed. Really Sunday afternoon fun is an individual thing except there is a comedy event. You can head to Silverbird and catch a movie, or head to dome for bowling, oling nitendo wii or snooker. Picnic @ mellinium park with friends or a significant other . Also you can attend the GAP(guild of artist and poets) meet that happens every sunday.

Dear City Crawler,

Please where can I get a great massage in Abuja at a reasonable cost?

from Omotosho.

Dear Omotosho,

Look no further, head to Body line gym and your Back will never remain the same. I am a living testimony.

Dear city crawler, 

Im looking to meet nice decent women of marriageable age who are not boring or desperate. Any suggestion of where I should go. P.s please don’t say church

From L

Dear El.

Im going to say church, sorry. Also ill say the supermarket, the cafes, work etc. any where you can find people really. Im no match maker and I really can say any particular place has good or bad girls but I will just advice you to also garner up courage to walk up to ladies and talk to them, as a man im sure you will be able to figure out a lady you are interested in by chating with her. goodluck
