Who Still Wants This Bill?



Cassan Said Amer tells a story about a lecturer who began a seminar holding up a one dollar bill, and asking:

– Who wants this dollar bill?

Several hands went up, but the lecturer said:

– Before handing it over, there’s something I must do.

He furiously crushed it, and asked again:

– Who still wants this bill?

The hands continued raised.

– And what if I do this?

He threw it against the wall, letting it fall to the floor, kicked it, stamped in it and again held up the bill – all dirty and crumpled. He repeated the question, and the hands continued to be held high.

– You mustn’t ever forget this scene – said the lecturer. – No matter what I do with this money, it’ll still be a one dollar bill.

“Many times in our lives, we are crushed, stamped on, kicked, maltreated, offended; however, in spite of this, we are still worth the same.”

Paulo Coelho

Now to the interview proper.

What kind of person are you?

Reply: I am  Vincent David an astute business coach and the youngest in Nigeria. I am a very reserved person, highly inquisitive, and principled also.

Where did you get your entrepreneurial spirit?

Reply: I believe my entrepreneurial spirit came from my late dad, he started sending me to get things for his big provision store at the age of 15. I would count thousands of naira at a tender age. I was exposed to the spirit of enterprenuship at a very young age.

And I further went to sharpen it and get trained by attending a Harvard Business school model business school here in Nigeria.

What makes you stand out comparing the competition in a today’s business world?

Reply: Well, there is no competition, I tell people most times.

The world moves at a global speed and you don’t compete with those in your niche, you model to them by being exceptionally competent.

But hoping by your question I would say my competitive edge and advantage is my unparalleled quest for knowledge and improvement.

Reply: As a writer, I am motivated when my works produce results in the life of my audience. Results motivates me.

Did you ever give up on an idea?

Reply: No, I don’t give up on ideas, I postpone them. I often advice business men, if an idea does work…. Change strategy, and if the strategy doesn’t work and you don’t have resources to acquire more strategies postpone your idea to the future… Ideas don’t die.

What book has inspired you the most?

Reply: The Bible. That’s my idea and inspiration bank

What is the title of your latest book? Do you have any of your books ready for free download or as a gift? What should we be expecting from you soon?

Yes I have an E-course for free download called building a personal Brand.

Reply: I read, I think, I add value to people, I make impact and I make money.

What is your opinion on the following question: Are entrepreneurs originally born as such or are they raised?

Reply: No, entrepreneurs are not born. They are trained to become one.

The Bean plant in a bean seed will die, even with its potential if it’s denied of water. That’s the same fate with entrepreneurship.

It’s a potential in everyone but without nurture will die a natural death.

There is a way to handle money.
They is a way to pull cash through into your business. They is a way to maximize seasons.

Business is products and service + strategy. No strategy, no business!!

That’s my advice, because I made a terrible mistake in the area.

What sacrifices have you made to be a successful entrepreneur?

Reply: A lot! A lot! A lot! I have sacrificed my life. Denied myself of sleep. Sacrificed my health.

Invested Tons of cash. Entrepreneurship is hard work. But we are pulling through.
