How To Use Your Brand As A Sales Tool

"My guest is laura reese. Laura teaches entrepreneurs and small businesses had a used. Their brand is a powerful sales tool and as a way to accelerate the sales cycle over the past twenty years she's worked as brand strategist happy writer and creative director. Supporting some of the world's most recognizable brands some of the world's smallest companies and lots of organizations in between. Thanks so much for joining me today. Laura thank you diana. I'm so glad to be here. I'm thrilled to have you here. We're gonna be talking about Using your brand is a sales tool. And so i think i'd like to start with asking you to define what a brand as well. I hear a lot of people say no well. We have a logo. So we're good as far as branding. But i think that a brand is about a lot more than that. It's about the total experience that your customers have with you with your business. Lagos definitely part of that because it ideally should represent an reflect that that experience. But it's just a really small piece so at a base level and especially for small businesses. Your brand is going to boil down to two things. The first thing is how your company serves customers. So that's how you solve their problems. How you meet their needs how you help them achieve their dreams goals and then the second thing is how you express that externally. Let me think about a big brands like nike. I love that example. Because they're so ubiquitous and everyone so familiar. What their swoosh and their tagline the way that they really serve customers is they provide shoes in athletic. Wear that's designed to enhance performance on. It gives you confidence to play at a high level. Let's not very sexy to stay right. So even though that's the foundation of what they do the way they express that is by showing you ask needs and by saying. Just do it okay. So let's talk about like the. Are there similarities between like the nike brand and a brand for a small business. Are there differences. The tana's definitely so when you think about a brand for any size of business you're going to have a set of foundational things. That are the same so nike knows. Its customer nike knows. What messages resonate. It knows its personality. It has a set visual and verbal tools that it follows in every execution of its brand same holds true for a small business that these are the same foundational elements that i teach my clients. When we go through my branding framework. you know. It's the same thing to finding your customer knowing your messages knowing your personality in how you execute that the biggest differences that you're going to see is the scale at which you can execute your marketing tactics so nike can. We're lebron jeans and serena williams that you probably don't have that kind budget as business. Great okay so that makes so much sense to me now. Oh shoot. I just had a question totally left my head Oh i know what it was when you were talking about defining your client. I find that companies are reluctant. I will stay that business. Owners are sometimes reluctant to engage in that sort of definition. Because they're afraid they're going to leave people out or leave you know companies out customers out that that they wanna be pretty broad. It's so common. And i think that that fear is real. I faced it myself as i've defined my brand for my own business. You wanna make sure that you can help a lot of different people but what you're really doing when you are talking in generalities is you're saying things that are kind of the noah and no one is going to pay attention to so the more tightly you can zero in on your target customer the more you can know that person to know their their pains. Pablo what it's gonna look like for them. If those problems are solved the more that you were gonna stand out to that person and you know if you think about one target client. It sounds crazy because of course you need more than one client business running but when you create your brand and then the marketing that follows from that if you have one specific person in mind that you are talking to. It's just going to be so much more concrete and so much more real have so much more emotion and passion that is going to be communicated to everyone is going to be so much more effective for you Right 'cause the messaging is so specifically targeted to that audience.

California governor gives somber outlook as virus cases reach nearly 1 million

"Has surpassed more than 10 Million Corona virus cases and looks like it's on track to hit record hospitalizations here in California Cove in 19 cases are increasing as well. And yesterday in a press conference, Governor Gavin Newsom warned the public once again. About the dangers of pandemic complacency. Committee politics, correspondent Teresa Lagos, says Mohr Governor Newsome struck a measure tone, noting that while California is seeing rising numbers and all of the key areas, including positivity rates, and I C u bed admissions that the state has the capacity to handle the increased caseload. Newsome warrant, however, that several counties may have to dial back reopening plans this week after spikes in those areas. He didn't specify which counties, Newsom says it's obvious why cases started climbing again in October. People are letting their guard down there taking their masks off. They're starting to get together outside of their household cohorts. They're starting to see business is reopened, and we're starting again to see more people mixing, the governor says As it gets colder, he expects to see more of that mixing and potentially more cases for the California report.

California Votes To Keep Criminal Justice Changes

"Was a good day for criminal justice reformers. In California statewide voters resoundingly defeated a ballot measure that would have rolled back some reforms. And voted to give people on parole the right to vote in the Bay Area. Six police Accountability measures enjoyed strong support, and San Francisco's former district attorney, George Gascon, appears to be winning in his challenge to the more conservative sitting Los Angeles D A. But voters did reject an attempt to end money bail. Here to sort out what All this means is cake politics correspondent Marissa Lagos. Marissa, You have been covering criminal justice reform efforts in California for over a decade now, were you surprised by these results? You know, I wasn't surprised Hera. But I do think that it is a huge win for the reform side of things. I mean, we've heard for years ever since some of these changes started coming through both legislatively and at the ballot box. A lot of pushback from law enforcement and other folks who saw them is going to far and I think that voters weighing in s O decisively on both proposition 20 rejecting some of these rollbacks of reforms and also on some of these police oversight measures really does show a shift an opinion. I spoke to Kate Chatfield, she's policy director at the Justice Collaborative, which is a national pro reform group. She knows that proposition. 20 wasn't even close. Even though law enforcement worked really hard to make the case to voters standing is all the usual cards in the deck. You know the Willie Horton playbook, crime is increasing the fear based mailers in the voter saw through them. And Kate, of course, is referring to that. 1988 Presidential Willie Horton ad The really helped Republicans win and I think that you know, while the No 1 20 side spend a lot more money than the outside, and I think some folks see that is, you know, money talks. I do think that Given how much we've heard talked about these issues that voters it seems like they knew what they were weighing in on and just didn't want, Teo turn the tide back the other direction. Yeah, you know, proposition 25 that was aimed at Indian cash. Bail was pretty suddenly defeated. What happened there? Yeah, This is a really interesting one. I mean, I think there's a couple things happening. One is that you didn't have the same coalition on the left really backing this reform. There's a schism with a lot of people kind of on the more progressive wing of The Democratic Party. The bail industry also spent a lot of money on this, and I think that the combination of them targeting folks in places like Riverside County and more conservative counties with some of the doubt that was cast by progressives probably was the reason they were able to build this coalition against prop 25. But it does feel like if you look at the kind of universe of all these that that is a bit of an outlier. It was a very complicated questions, so that may have been part of it. So do you think these results could actually encourage state lawmakers to go even further in the future? I do. Although I don't expect to see any dramatic huge reforms come out of the Legislature. I think we'll see what we've seen in years past, which is piecemeal attempts to kind of dismantle some of the harsher sentencing laws. I do think from the outside that we're going to see more pressure from advocacy groups to push the Legislature further. It's worth noting that just before the election The Sisters of Polly class who was one of the crime victims who has really helped spur the three strikes movement in California, came out to say that they want to see reforms and that they are unhappy with the way three strikes when the way their sister's name was used. So lawmakers may not go as far as voters, but they're going to get some pressure. Well, thanks

"In Nigeria's largest city legos reports are coming in of security forces opening fire tonight on unarmed demonstrators the demonstrators had been protesting in fact against police brutality according to several eyewitnesses the live rounds hit several people details on casualties have not yet been confirmed. This evening's violence erupted after the Lagos State government imposed a twenty four hour curfew in response to the growing protests against police violence. Yesterday protesters blocked a major expressway in Lagos and also targeted the main airport shutting down terminals Judeh John was a lawyer and journalist and Lagos earlier today I asked him how people in the city were responding to the curfew. People in a frenzy panicked people are constant appointments people are running home. Lagos notorious for heavy traffic transportation is a nightmare and so I've just feel so sad for people who would have to be rushing home and David cuts under ruled. It's well before many people usually get home from work. I've even seen suggestions on twitter cautioning those not close to home to head to a hotel. Why did authorities take such action what prompted this Nigeria's security systems if the mess that incentivized protect powerful on the privilege against citizens The government in this atmosphere of chaos. Must have made strategy conclusion that the easiest thing to do is keep everybody hope. Just a sense of will not have the capacity to contain spiraling protests on. We should do the easiest thing for us to do to keep this on their ups. The problem with that is that citizens expect that the government should be taken action to protect constitional protests citizenship but the punished. For the government's inability to secure life on property, which ironically is the point of the protests in the first place. So while I can send me a tree she, it's the thinking that led to this. It said Selena against them because even though you can see, yes, people understand that we care on this trees the government was trying to get control over fluid situation. Students expected mental thought of a better way to do this that doesn't infringe on the rights of peaceful protests on the rights of freedom of assembly. So today when you say the police system in Nigeria a mess, a lot of Nigerians point I two SARS a special anti robbery squad, the unit that actually prompted all these protests and now the demands of the protesters have grown beyond just a narrow focus on the SARS unit. What are protesters calling for? Now any serious blended engaged government should have anticipated that the conditions that covid nineteen hundred presented would stimulate already restless citizenry to get on the streets in Nigeria. Young people overwhelmingly. Tired, of bad, governance, they're tired of what appears to be disengaged disconnected. Government, that's the crux of the matter people just feel like the government's a disconnected from the demand the desires of every major ends what people are really tired of is Goldman that doesn't care when citizens die. That's the problem and onto citizens believe that the government is not just going to react to the protests at the time. The government understands that this is about disappointment in the system. The demands will keep on multiplying.

In Nigeria for the first time whatever category belong to the something in this episode fall So I'm able. Some from interstate surnames Moussa because I married someone Uraba any there's anything I know about. The. Like building a house from scratch as a matter of fact, you are not considered if all mind until you build your house both in Lagos on back home being the East but times are changing my friends. This is just a lot more advanced when it comes to real estate acquisition. In Nigeria, you can actually buy a house from a reputable development company and through a competent real-estate agent, it's just more efficient. The fact that property patches are very expensive means that anyone buying a house for the first time needs to be extra careful. In particular about ensuring that they get value for their hard earned money. Now according to the Federal Mortgage Bank of Mine Geria- The total value for the real estate market is over fifteen nine, trillion naira. And I know that you want to be part of the National Pie. So. How'd you get started? Luckily for you, I have five Golden Nuggets to help you get started. So, let's take it from the top. Budget. The first thing you need to do and picking out your property is determining what? Budget. You have for this project for this property acquisition PROTAC much. Can you afford? So you have to ensure that you have enough maybe there is room to get some more money based on your preferences. And then you explore your payment options whether you're able to pay install mentally via a private developers scheme or getting a mortgage from a reputable provider. The huge mistake first time homebuyers make is not knowing their budgets a lot of people come to me. Ask Me for the first time. In the property acquisition process. And they say, just let me know what's bed. I cannot possibly give you the entire team this team in our real-estate estate portfolio, you'd get exhausted. To the realistic thing is to have an idea how much you'd like to spend. You can have a arrange. For the budget. And set realistic based on what you have in your account or pocket. And your budgets we usually determine. You're. Looking, at on realistic locations will mean that you may not be able to afford what your heart desires is save. You have for instance, fifty million area you're looking to buy the five bedroom house and your thinking equally. My. Dear friends. He's rethink. The next point that we're moving onto. Is deciding what kind of properties suits your current needs say whether you're getting terrorist detached all semi-detached apartment how many bedrooms do you neat maybe you're a single guy that just wants to -bility before he settles down. WHAT YOU'RE A new couple looking for brand. You're married and looking to expand the family. So maybe a two or three bedroom is no longer serving the purpose and you're looking to expand maybe a four bedroom, all five bedroom. It doesn't matter what your situation is, what you need to analyze to know what type of property suits your current needs. Knowing what your budget is determines the type of property and the location of your property. It's also determines what kind of featured you'd be getting in a house. Do you need a play area? For your small children or do you need? Recreational space or do you need a gym? Swimming Pool to exercising. As maybe you're excitable passing likes to walk out hope, I love working up. and. I particularly love it when I'm living in a development that has a gym. Or. Maybe you like to run a business from home and you need a her office. So that's something you really need to analyze what do you need in your hawks because that's going to determine how much your budget will be and what kind of property you're going to need to. Maybe by the time you finish analyzing all your needs you end up with. A four bedroom terrace because you need one room for your child and other room for your office and another room for the guest room and then. Your master bedroom. So it really depends on what your current needs are. Now thirdly. Also, determine who will help you find your house people make the mistake of. People make the mistake of thinking they can get the best deal for themselves. Now, there's something very important. I'm going to tell you right now please note this remember this your property agent is your judiciary representative and they represent you on all parameters concerning the transaction that is sourcing negotiating liaising with the designated lawyers. You can't do this all on your phone because you need a competent representative who has your interest at heart who is willing to ensure that all the ts are crossed and all the is a dotted. Your property acquisition process can be the most pleasant experience. It can also be the most daunting experience if you're not with the right representation. Referrals is a great place to start when you're looking for the right representative for your property acquisition ask someone. Who have gone through the experience in Oxfam used Going online needs another avenue that you can explore however whoever you find in line and show you to authorities such on them.

So what do viral on? There would be like this crisis. It's as evidence that the current challenges may become the new normal. What are the scenarios that will confront us in the nearest future? And how will this impact the livelihood of Nigiera's? Do you think this scenarios would be festival? This would be starting on price movements because of course into sixteen cruella ladles into recession arrived. Burqas out of the session but one interesting thing about the pop up. He was just so we had e V ship recession visa. V ship recession such safety. Draw the line and save means you just wind down then you came out so we went into a recession in two thousand sixteen by the first quarter by the second quarter. Tony Seventeen Economy Radio Coloring Alto of recession. So but this time so many factors that I guess the the Komo meets also not dish onto the five W. Price Lou. I would like new. Remain a little You know this virus continues He's also the five and comical out so so scenarios would be based on on. How how what is for your price going forward into the second. How long can we sustain these economic? Look down and also I think more important. Dan Wilson needs to government intervention. What I'd be policies as to show that we limited the impacted negatively about those look down on these nets is all citizens household on all economic agents. So I think I'm basically that's Macho to determine whether we we remaining recession for a long time is is more lockdown itself so we we've we do restriction of movement on lockdown of month sentence sentences. I think that in itself is one key. One key activity of one key factor. That would drive economy down into a recession ensure that we stay there for quite a long time so what we are basically doing what we've been doing the last few months and injuries to save lives or seeing the coming. But I think it's very important that we we don't make it either. Our situation we do. We have to save lives. Steve The C. Licensee VLAD moves on the end of the recession or economic fresh on the top significant impact. On and do less of people people will lose their jobs who who most become poor and that's how they generational effects on livelihoods on the on the chew. Drain UNBORN GENERATION ON. The of course is also cited pickle. Crime Rate's crime rate's could also lead to loss of lives so you declaring situation. I think it's not going to be rosy furniture Going forward especially giving all the praise your points from the oil price baked lockdown as it went to the fact that clued production ninety is struggling to satellites Two trees also being affected five foreign investments COMMUN- on those who even look investments are being without you know at this time of uncertainty. I think that's one key that keep key factors that definitely bleed Determine how the economy would certainly AIDS looking? More like economy would be heat so the pushed on these people in the box being in there. How long are we going to stay in every session on how long what do we need to do to ensure that we? I would to reduce the number the length of of recession So so it means came would probably have a huge shift recession. So it's going to lose theater for a long time before so this can be offset if interventions meant interventions up properly structured and ensure that they reached those affected households and businesses. I think that's one of the Nigerian. Economy IS HEAVILY. Reliant on the oil sector and despite several efforts we seem not to have fully diversified economy. But what policy. Directions will be effective at this time to drive economic expansion and on the long term diversification devastation longtime immobile. Diversify here I mean you. You want to change. The structure of economy defined period of time. So a year is not something to be something that active shooter outdoor part of the problem. You're seeing now. We haven't done what we should have done but mind you let me see the I. I don't think that menderes programs poodle because of a couple of weeks apples because or reliance on Hulu because I can examples from countries like Saudi Arabia countries like Russia. We've got on these countries heavily dependent. Budo SAUDI ARABIA. For instance relies so much for. What's different between nature you up when you moved to see for the future so be have reserve so by GM or combined with his monkey side to become adequately finance government finance TV. Few hot teams that toward the we. We we don't have that. I mean Saudi Arabia disease tend to be barrows and enjoyed struggles to given to Tara's body so that tells you that even in terms of the oil itself. I we really rich to help you find not only reach. Why do we always think the problem? The problem itself. How we don't we haven't done what we need to do. Over the year so part of which is savings for the future acquiring. We even see how much it took awhile to to even get this over wolf on into appreciate the excess crude-oil account in challenge being he because he sees every money that comes into the edition common shared across the Tweety of government. So that's an easy when it tells you that we'd be ready to see for the future because when he's being seat dot the time. I remember this did go. They want that. Show one eight legal to start saving using the lower no of this lack consciousness about saving for the future for my remember. I one of the lead us ain't on handed you. We need these here. You're they will always be here that we don't have to see if we really it's already here to Sadat's mentality of those about don't have thought seasons coach John Winnie when we need these like these call. We have nothing to even use the code on me's diversified if oil council one percent duty. Pm Manufacturing accountable fifty percents of GDP funding from China. Account for seventy percent. Goldman of any maybe seven coming from taxes on cool at this time with the lockdown. Are you GONNA Tax Business? So you must have something to fall back to about savings coach. I think that's one thing so we often most and discuss about oil deemed appropriate sometimes than clues. That it's not just about Roy. Yes I agree. That doesn't have too much to lose it or ECON but all that sector shoot contribute as much through the east to to maybe X. reserves a crash on or to export earnings or even to go mentioning the economic indicates Keyed Clinic Indicators. But at the same time will we must be able to see for the rainy day. I think that's very key in terms of the policy. Response going forward what I think we need to do. I'd like to draw insights from the. GimMe Janet Comics Came jumping up. Keynes's you Fred to the Permanent Palma may twentieth century. So timing like these. We need to spend our way out of meant ensure that we we spend spend money in the right places. I gave it to us to be able to poor to even the Middle Income. People that have lost exhausted.

"We'll be looking at covered. Nineteen oil price and the Nigerian economy and to go along in discussion with me and help make sense of the direction in which we're going We have Wilson is senior economist with the Curia Economic Summit. Welcome thank you. It's a blizzard. Now please introduce yourself Mr Tillis a little bit more about yourself. My knees will in remember. An economist currently work as an economist with Journey Economic Summit Group where I get to do research on. Also engage in policy advocates. So it's not just about researching them but it goes about seeing how we can engage government to implement the recommended Sean. Style we put forward. And that's basically what I did. A Soviet this global pandemic has defined twenty twenty and Nigeria is no exception. What is your opinion on? Its impact on the economy so far. So it's unfortunate that the world is going through this right now grew You know the Coronado virus situation. He's not being funny. Series of Google Shutdown Donald factories. Shut Down Post We've also had an increasing number of cases you know from on China moving over to the United States equally on Europe in general even here in Africa across all different continent. So it's not been an easy one so the number of dead cases out of also increased as well but on the economic side on coming back home here in Nigeria. We've seen how festival so they are different of several transmission mechanism. So do one of them is the price channel where we've seen how demand for could drop significantly physically driven by low low industrial activities. Even people aren't even going out so they lure demand for transport services Which means that based on for fuel? So we've seen cases where KUDA advice features the beat features even wins into a negative so people were actively paying to sell the crude Brains We've seen the drug prices to below twenty dollars per barrel. So that's one key. Effect on also worrisome. I made you couldn't even point. So it's crude because his Such retail with so much put from different places different continent different countries. Saudi Arabia Russia's to you know going on with these war who controlled the market so that creates a lot of uncertainty and outlook for the price of crude which we all knew that It's a major to tell me. Not How would home because who those who? Who Do. I need surprise? Oats to also have accused in relation to grow now reserves Fake thing go. Men's revenue and also can boost in external an exports earnings. So the woman days that drove a significant drop in crude oil project. What we're experiencing it means go. Mint will not be able to meet its financial obligations so things like team salaries which are very important to of things that Keno costs to keep the government running things like infrastructure investment in education healthcare spending unlivable would be severely affected as a result of the decline include a price so that was one effects off the virus pandemic on on major out. And we all know that. Didn't they drink on every dependent on government last recession you? What dresses dot point? One days trouble. We'd Goldman finances that direct linkages into the system of course demand going down ability to meet for an exchange needs becomes Richard Grind fixed on our reserves of approaching five dollars. Fallen significantly on this is made was that we don't have adequate savings fiscal bofors because this this is what countries rely on this point in time to see if we can't get rid of and you only need to drive into saving but right now we're GonNa have got so it's a gesture switch on major. It's not an easy one and a lot of a lot of things of ancient would need to go on what we do now because projections. I've said that the recession is inevitable. We come up way so the question then is what is the how come show that. We don't get to the bottom economic depression new and show that we even if we get into research on become come back because he's just a word it's deficts lives and people who are jobs prizes. We'll go up the poll. Become for many people would fall below the poverty line so these are some of the reality. Is that likely to come on onboard going into next year? So that's one. Tim Buck of price on that. Transmission Magnesium is the fact that cinch off and on trade. He's also been disrupted movement. You know challenges and the global supply chain. So there's an overall materials on this show groups that need to be used in production of what I would also be affected especially when many of the global economy is experiencing lockdown economic activities so? I know that Chanel is through the local disruption intensive Destroy activities locally in Niger. Due to look into restriction so that in itself is a very big space that would also planned in parks and we can imagine for almost a month. We've not read it much economics to c.s in my GDP particularly for you on these continues into it took me June so what if you compared to? Gdp growth egos was that we claim to be lower than what we had by this time last year. So that's an eight. Direct hits on economic activities even do Production of essential temp like food drugs on cool but non-essential also very key down. These needs me to the impact on some sectors so far east on the manufacturing sector. Would you want to do it? Because as much respect for the other sectors within during that fall within the enormous I shall read. That's locked fates cement funding loved the older non-essential sickle sub sectors within the manufacturing sector few grocery goes factor and say coins in nineteen grew by just zero point two percent from two point one percents in twentieth. So that tells you that already you experience in decline so these kind of shock to the system much more declaim talks won't key six also come additional one hundred thirty entertainment and recreation. Saito would be heat So tells you restaurants on it basically places. We have gatherings of people events of one on one key areas that are affected by these. Look down that Saito would be obscene. Li La down what we had last year on undertake construction sector. So we've had a case way Because Structure Signal always relies heavily on government spending. So if you look at the jets let one dedicated to capital spending close to over to treat with being. Shall we D- falling oil prices to review the Govan. How to read either budgets to using the bench Bockel Fizi da Barra even with that. And still you know STU opinions going around that that's unit so We may not have any projections because he's not just oil time also annoying so if the economy's on found a major commitment to these you know try to be mean to spray the requires without also means one. I- revenue companies and install commentary so we would also let me see declaiming noyer so that's over of course without fixed construction and even right now the the main focus has been to contain the spread of the buyers. If you notice most of the government's batsmen Goldman spending than channel to hell and some of the sectors. So what are we talking about roots structure on a really apple so to construct contact though would definitely be be hard heats sectors so there's also transport take the transportation movement of goods four segments to real road and see dressing. The transportation was actually the fastest growing thing Clinton in nineteen. I see deep so this time. It's the hot heat. Because the restrictions on the movement is either was one of the best sectors valid affected. Even so it'd be lots of so we would probably have naked down declining. Good enough transports sector across all the different categories so from the air transports to transport a real transport so also social services sector so you have education on our very key.

So why do we need made in Nigeria Solutions Thanks thanks for having US. Social distance in as walks in part because the the government shutdown. And you know bothers movement in Lagos Ogun Abu However you know keeping a distance from each other working from relying on your safety net these measures which advised by. Who you know against the coronavirus pandemic made for parts of the war. That cannot afford to retreat in individualism for millions of people in cities. Like Lagos and Kano. There's no such thing as You know social distancing yourself many in those for almost a month now legos. You know some are privileged enough to stop the panthers who had loss of You know hand sanitizers wipes facemasks food and basic needs but many others rely on d today and in for them to be able to provide for themselves now. These safety nets have not been readily available in Nigeria. The government you know in these states and the federal government have been doing their bit but there's the comments on histories now people say Hong Kong Alvar. You know the land mass of Lagos is unbelievable. Small landmass with a lot of people teen to twenty million people depending on where you are. If New York you know never sleeps because the lights are always on Lagos never sued. Because there's no power most times because you know man people stay outdoors to get some air some so that they don't choke down. Wendy are getting some air you know. A lot of things can happen. You know. Illegals relies on a lot of informal economy. It's the economic capital of Nigeria. Was still you know. It's the informal economic capital of West. Yes because mining curious street might manicures. You know it's very novel is nothing you'll find all about. This is how these people survive and these people the ones who houses leaving communities where forty people or more share building share a bathroom you know. So how do you social distance from that? It's different from what it is all about the world that is why you know we need to look inward. I look at our own peculiar challenges to solve our own problems and You know you know. The government has been trying to the state government who look at things from a holistic manner. Which is what we've been clamoring for for years and years. The local governments need to be powered by themselves. Because it is true. You know local governments that we can get primary healthcare now. We get a lot of things happening for people in their words in the zones. You know that is why we need made in nine hundred solutions. You know I can continue to speak. Speak about many things that you know you know. We need to do but think about it. Even beyond the people that live in penury Two weeks coronavirus case was confirmed in Lagos doctors in the AFC. Booja announced that they were going on strike. Overwhelmed compete salaries. Those are doctors. The people you know part of the Tri Stat supposed to help stop the spread of the Earth. You know in it's it's it's just very baffling and what we must do. Now is crafty innovative solutions based on our own unique similarities. And this not mean that we have one solution for the whole country. We simply need to make these solutions graduate solutions in densely populated passively must differ from the suburbs dissolution from Alabama's differ from you know scanty islands in Nagoya. We Need Solutions. That are based on local challenges of the people set in places. I haven't had cases you know. Pat Glennon Yanagawa. If people live on an island and then you you stop them from traveling. Mainland to get resources Dandy will look for other ways that we can cost the spread if there is a case amongst them so we must envisioned solutions for win was also invasion could solution for win coronavirus spikes because according to some experts above the NCDC and Lagos officials. We haven't reached that peak yet. So at that point we must plan for it on That is why we need. Maybe Niger solutions because men for example even in Lagos right. Now you're looking at places like but agree yes. There are no cases in fire. We buy in. We look when we talk me goes we. Oh we just think maybe the metro yeah places like the you know the mainland Ikeja Nasty like that. But I'll expect that somewhere like but agree Those who who are four years I jog by be locked down. Saturday doesn't get there and then they will find a way to ensure that you know their life can continue their but within that space absolutely should be solutions. Need to be designed for each part of and that's why you know If a practice true federalism you would help us really Solve problems for people where they are rather than trying to use uniform solutions or national solutions to solve local problems. Which is what has pulled us back over here so maybe now we can start. You know doing those anything's set in short term. You know reforms on medium-term reforms for us to achieve what we need to do as it totally. Now as my giresse foremost think-tank. That's you guys. At the end she What are some of the things that you are doing to make these This happened that is You know looking for 'em local solutions to some of these challenges there be any issue works across twelve policy commissions for the five mighty and three communities of practice. I knew sound like a lot of numbers and a lot of decisions. What these things through. All Saito's economy from agriculture to human capital and think about it. Agriculture has been very effective because a lot of people have had to be at home but even in upper parts of the country where a lot of agricultural things are happening. These people simply produce that he can ship to larger cities and their businesses have been affected profits. We are affected. You know roadblocks on the road and everything happened on. The road has made some of your produce. You Know Rothfusz stop you know before getting into the market you know A friend of mine told me about you. Know Market Women. The cheese she went to the market as a kid has an essential service and provide and salt trucks and trucks on carts of Rotten fruit being thrown away and she was conversation with me and said why can't do things be given out to the people before they you know. So these are ways that we can Solve those problems. As as as a government we are not the government you know at the NASD beyond what we're doing You know it's In many many angles across these sectors that I mentioned currently advocating for short-term media long-term policies that will aid survival of Nigerians. Our modern surviving. That will help them. Thrive through short term.

You know Economy why that is that Just think think about the Trident people say medical is the most important thing but The medics only three people that that are ill but the the also important in Detroit so number one is the medical efficiency number two is governance and number three is communication right dot trident is needs to. I read that to try and expand the other one in a bit. So I tried interviews in you know medical efficiency which Let's be honest. We do not really have bought through governance. In in this time we've been able to to Repack IN LAGOS STATE. You know And some other states. The state governors stepped up To to create Isolation centers in partnership with private. Sudas help so that. Trident of Medicare efficiency. Governors communication is what What determines how could. Ninety-nine affects every country of this world for example The number of cases occur virus in Germany is as high almost as high as spins but far less up people have died which is because the US destroyed and of medical efficiency. We all know what we call Germans. German machines machine yes. They've used exceptional government. I'm most importantly communication so when he social distance state whom Depending on who should stay at home. How people should get their resources how people should interact are people should commute. How the markets you walk out the essential services should walk solo. These trident is very important. I'm I'm I believe that If we get it right of course we are you know. At than economy on a state body if we get it right to to a certain level we will be able to. You know you know Solve our problems and covered nine hundred problems in our community at the moment. Now what does the other tried and against the nineteen the Audit Trident is Barbaro? Meet much it. Hit About Twenty eight twenty five which means that. The government cannot fund to telephones this process so the other trend is the is the funding. We all know business works with funding. Nothing works without funding so the Trident is the government which is the federal state and local government funding the efforts. The second is something. I would like to comment which is where the NASD operates which is Private sector organized and informal private sector use as the second part of the Trident and third the international community So the privates stepped up massively. I'm sure many of us in the in the cities I've heard about you know so much money that the privates have donated to us this 'cause you know the government to I spoke fifty nets died. The government put in place what the international community is important in helping us with medical efficiency. You know I mentioned earlier that You know without that efficiency. We can't do anything some weeks ago. Some Ferrari that some Chinese people came into nine Jonah. Treating people became to train people But if you notice the European Union the Dutch empty these people have been donating you know finances. Resources achieve maximum efficient. Whatever it is we are doing a wanted to To be rid of this pandemic what should be our priorities against Kobe? Nineteen at this time but we have to utilize bottom tridents to to tackle. A few of our priorities are mentioned. The you know the parodies Shortly but I'd like to mention Something quickly it is the fact that You know in in Lagos about six million people live on incomes largely on a daily basis. You know any represents millions of families who can only start buying making meals you know when the primary breadwinner gets home every day and the breadwinner has not been able to go out so you know number one.

You got fuck fucking work to fucking work. And that's that's the chew saying, man. It's like that extra guy humble was saying like eighty percent is just showing up eight that is a lot of stuff is showing up to you just got that's pushing it though. But I also think that that. Episodes thing is what their market requires or what the this. How they that's how they do things. How do you stay sane schedule? Like that. That's that's I mean and that. I think it's. I don't know. I mean, I work in most of the year is just it probably doing things quicker and this takes. And he's probably he's. Yeah. He's probably super provine. I mean because the first time you told me about this guy. He told me he was like I 'cause I never heard of them. We're in Johannesburg, and you like there's this guy named basket mouth out or any ease like crazy famous. Well, yeah. Looked them up after I met him in Johannesburg. I looked up after that. And it was it was some video one of those kind of datelined style interviews with the person walks through their own neighborhood. And then they were interviewing him, and it was children chasing him through the streets. Jesus. To the airport whenever the deport be was like Jesus. He came in in fitted suit, and the and and nice shoes. And his, you know, his time for glasses is he always fresh. Always always always cool. Do he blew through there? And like the thing is women from like London from Belgium. I saw what show in London. The show ably saying that they knew him from like like that. That's dope, man. He's got power, man. So I'm saying like at the end of the day dad do was inspiring for me from that trip to like, oh, I've been I've been sleeping. I've been slacking. Because once you get into the groove man, you know, do couple of wait. Wait, don't tell me. I got man this fuck that you wanna be a comic rockstar. I wanna be bad him out. Romaine AK forty sevens.

Even police officers might ATM now. It was a due at the first hotel, we stayed at tech crunch. It was a man who had his own security guard and that do had AK forty seven. And he just got elevated with his man. Now, here's a question is this are they being extra or is this like a is there is there an actual real threat where you're going to need that fully automatic weather. I think so. Wow. What if you don't have one you get you just can't come up and not have one? Yeah. You just got out of hand. Like, I'm gonna get one. All right, then we're all giving everybody. Better be like two glocks and be great shot. That's just crazy to me that people walking around with fully autumn like fully automatic weapon. And you have it. They will have Rambo style.
