You must have been day dreaming, thinking and planning for the straight ways to negotiate your salary at work but couldn't find one. Are you looking forward to having pay rise on your salary soonest? What measure have you taken considering the low payment you are being paid at work?..... It is quite disheartening that the basic salary paying to workers here in Nigeria is too weak and not enough to make a living- talkless of keeping or saving to invest in a business whence retirement comes by.

Informatively, if you are battle ready to negotiate your salary with courtesy and manner at work, sit on a couch, cross your leg while sipping a glass of coffee for I would unravel the senses involved on how to negotiate salary here in Nigeria. Mind you, negotiating your salary with your employee in Nigeria is a difficult task- you can lose your job through the agitating if care is not taken. When there are ten of thousands of people seeking for job out there and countless sets of individuals who are ripe, solid and set to graduate from colleges and universities to join the teeming unemployed. As a result, people grow in panic when it comes to negotiating there pay / salary- as fear of being suspend, probably expel from office struck there pretty minds.

The following steps, though not limited are the key ways to follow on how to negotiate your salary in Nigeria.

Step #1:- contented.

As a beginner in a firm or organization, you are expected to be satisfied and contented with the paycheck or amount you will be offered by the employer in the first place even if you aren't satisfied- at least half loaf they said, it's better than none. Without being in the stage of financial freedom, at least the token will afford you to taking care of some if not all of your need for the time being. Prove your ability on duty, worth and passion towards your assignments to your boss and never lament or complain on the salary to him. Brand and market yourself perfectly to your employer, lo and behold how he will feel and react when time goes by if he wouldn't increase your salary himself.

STEP #2:- Be committed and hardworking
. Business owners or managers do value hardworking employers since they are seen to be resourceful. They wouldn't like to seeing you leaving their firm, as a result of this, it will be quite difficult for your boss to stand or go against your wish, plus, it will enable you to negotiate your salary with him with confidence. But no lazy one could dare try such (negotiating salary) with the boss without snowballing into crisis. Why? Because he wouldn't mind you leaving the firm or company since you are not resourceful. It would even serves as an avenue to look for your perfect replacement.

Hardwork really pays in any form of work or business you are into. The lazy types are prone to be sacked and replaced. But, if you are committed, agile and hardworking on duty, you will be celebrated, hence, leaving you a lasting impression in the inner part of your boss. Your, commitment and hardworking will always speak for you; in your presence and absence before your employer and this will serves as a catalyst during the course of the salary negotiation.

STEP #3:- Plan And Get Prepared.
When it comes to dangerous game like this, planning and preparation are of high importance. It is very crucial as a negotiator to take your time to plan your movement towards confronting your boss and prepare so well for the exist door before you kick the motion, in case if things did not work out as planned. Check and access yourself on duty or at work if you actually worth the negotiation, if yes you are really entitled to an increase in salary payment, then you are expected to give your employer or boss a notice before confronting him for the salary negotiation. Let him be informed that you would love to have a brief discussion- with respect- with him so as not to meet him extemporaneously.

Step #4:- Observe.
Be conscious of the time you will walk up to the manager for the salary negotiation. You have to be up to the minute, time and day regarding the income and sales record of your organization. The best, right and ideal time to agitates for salary increment is targeted to be when the organization is having a luminous and buoyant financial records.

Be observant and ensure that the number of your audience willing and able to buy or demanding for your products at that point in time are voluminous, also, the production or work rate is very high, then, you clamoring for salary negotiation wouldn't be seen as a bad or covetous employee. But if you are not observant and open the negotition at the wrong time you are likely be fired by the angry and desperate manager.

Step #5:- Determine and meet your boss. The last but not the least step on how to negotiate for increase in salary in Nigeria is to be determined and approach the boss with a win/win mind. Be assertive and confident, listen patiently when your boss is talking, don't be to forward, aggressive and bluff while the conversation is on. And never give ultimatum if really you want to negotiate your salary in Nigeria.

In the long run, to avoid embarrassment in your place of work, the aforementioned steps should be treated with caution if you want to negotiate your salary increment in Nigeria. If you continue to be dense, managers in Nigeria will never notice you but if you treat the five golden steps as such, you will have a course to come back later and thank me.

Business Ideas / Top 10 Fastest Growing Businesses In Nigeria by Ikoiikenna: on Mon at 11:04am
While starting out any business in any part of Nigeria, you need to fathom and cordially nose for the most lucrative and fastest one in town so that you won't invest in a dull and tomorrow-dying business.

Talking about the best business outside there, they aren't salutary until they are the fastest business in this giant of Africa, Nigeria. Many investors like you are too watching over the best business that could rake in money instead of the long lasting one which could probably sustain them for lifetime.

Though you might be part of them but, I'm going to unveil the extra-fast business that you can start tomorrow with actually low income. Basically, you might have been hearing about these businesses but here are the 10 fastest growing business ideas in Nigeria which I will advice you to invest in now!;

1. Cement Business
yes! Don't expect me to say the one in your mind. Since the advent and growth in building and construction works, cement business had been rocking the world of business. With as low as #100,000 you can start this business in an area close to new sites and a marketable junction. It grows well in state like Lagos, Oyo, Osun and lots more. Taping into this business is also lucrative and it grows within 3-6 months of your start depending on your premises and target.

2. Agricultural Food Production
Can you do in a day without eating? No! And that's the number one reason you need to start this business. Conversion of food crops into raw edible kind must be your target. All you need is a token and a small room for processing and producing foods. Foods like groundnut oil, rice, frozen poultry, frozen livestock, cassava flakes and lots more is faster than any other business. Building a biological and knowledgeable training is profitable while starting this business. It takes at least 4 months to grow standard in this business depending on the scale and targets.

3. Security Business
Have you ever seen an hotel or bank hiring a police man or an army for security? Definitely No! Starting a security outfit where companies, organisations and individuals could come to while in need of security guards is good. While starting this business, you only need competent hefty men- tall and capable, to handle the job. Your first hire pays you your first rate of growth. This business rakes in a lot of money and connection through out Nigeria, if you wholeheartedly and passionately do it.

4. Exportation business
I know you must have been awaiting me to say this and here is it. Starting an exportation business in Nigeria, you need a proffered stock to be export like bitter kola, coal, gall stones, cocoa produce and lot more must be your concentration. Also you need a license and travelling document which would allow you to start legally. Connection is the basis of this business and within a short range of 6 months, you will be widely known across Nigeria and not just fame but rewarding riches.

5. Real Estate
if you are the type that loves to buy and sell lands and houses then these business might be your fate. It equally entails the buying of properties and leaving it for years to appreciate and then sell for higher prices compare to the latter price. Starting this business needs you to be capital intensive and with it you can probably make the best gain and fame through it. Don't forget while striving for growth, money, fame, honesty is the fundamental foundation of this business, if you truly want to make it great in this business.

6. Haulage Business
What does this means? It entails the use of truck to deliver product, hiring truck and any imaginable diversions. I've seen men making millions annually from this business because with this business many people could be ideally successful. For instance, you bought a truck and gave it to a driver to manage it for you. Either for disposition of gravel, granite, sands and other company products to their destinations and through this you could make the best money. However, licensing and good vehicular engines is the most acceptable one and would advice you to go for it.

7. E-Business
the internet had captured every bit of appreciation needed by man like it's informative, educating , entertainment, connection builder and most importantly money making. You could start as a freelancer in any aspect like marketing, content writing, blogging, web designing, mobile apps developer, e-store and lots more could be your niche. Investing in any of this business entail your ability to manipulate the computer system like laptops, p.c and smartphone is the basis of this business. You could surf online for more online business ideas and probably making your way through one. No matter your choice, it grows within the range of 2-6 months depending on the vast one chosen.

8. Sales of alternative power supply
solar panels and generators had replaced the disappointments from the Power Holding Company of Nigeria-PHCN. You could invest in selling or hiring any other source of alternative power supply to individual and industries making your huge income from it, it also bring forth more growth. Mikano and Power jet are example of companies here and you could be noted out too, if you actually have the knowledge and passion to run it.

9. Facilities management
there had been poor management of homes,offices and companies' facilities, you could be a guardian or instructor in this particular field by lending helpful theoretical and practical tips on extreme maintenance of of facilities. Investing in this business need your months of experience and foremost your workmanship ability with people so as to grow well in this Nigeria.

10. Event planner and Déco business

Don't rack segments of your brain, it is someone like you who is able to manipulate and put in to use the needed talent and that is why you are able to love it.

Import/ Export / 5 Things You Should Know About Exportation by Ikoiikenna: on Sun at 09:02pm
It is important one keeps learning in any field of endeavors and exportation is not an exception. The truth is that there are lots of acclaimed experts in this field of exportation which made people confused of who and what to trust. Thereby, making valuable and concrete business decision is becoming increasingly difficult for some obvious reasons which have eluded these newbies thereby making them a prey for the so call expert.

Last month, a loyal reader of this blog came to my office to make some inquiries about exportation. Just like I will always ask; what do you know exportation? This is important because knowledge is indeed power! The woman answered and said she has been speaking to someone who claimed to be exporting bitter kola in kilograms on a regular basis. Honestly, I was surprised because I know bitter kola cannot be exported on a small scale except you are sending a sample order (though, there is a way round this). So, I told her to call the man again in my presence! But before then; I have provided answers to some of her questions based on what I knew but she did not believe me because she was expecting to claim what is not; she was expecting me to accept what is not. It is important you know that not all you hear about exportation is true in the real sense!

That is why discuss the five simple truth about exportation; irrespective what and where you are exporting from. The points I will be raising here are something any serious exporter should take seriously.

Exportation Requires Time: I do not know how many times I need to echo this! Exportation is a business that requires time; it does not happen in days like eCommerce business does. This does not mean it should take forever; it simply means you need to give it time because it’s an international business that requires trust.

You Need Knowledge: Knowledge is the application of information that is why knowledge is key in whatever business one does and exportation is not an exception. Be it, local or international; you must make sure you tried to get the right information on exportation.

Unstable Government Policies: This is something that keeps changing every now and then in Nigeria and even other countries. What is exportable today may no longer be exportable tomorrow. That is why you need to stay among people who are relevant in the field of exportation.

You Need Others: Exportation is not a business you can do in isolation you will always need some other people to stay inform and get the business going that is just the nature of the business of exportation

No Documentations for Small Exportation: This is something that I get people ask me almost every day. If you are doing small scale exportation; no documentations are required except you are thinking of going MEGA.
Hope you have been enlightened the more on the topic.

Setting up a blog with blogger is easy and will take few minutes. By default you will be assigned a domain.
If you are interested in setting up a blog on blogger I can help you.
