MONDAY RANDOMS - HE STOLE MY IDEA!

I like my Monday Random corner, it is my rant and your rant corner.
So yesterday, Behind the scene of a photoshoot for the fashion brand ROSEJANE Collection, I and a couple of other friends behind the scene got talking; Entrepreneurship, the Journey and challenges.

One of our friends BTS complained bitterly about "how he saw an advert online, from a credible source to apply for funds, which requires he sends his Business Idea to the email address of the investor, so he will be shortlisted to get funds to grow his startup business. He sent his business idea, and was finally shortlisted. He never heard from the Organisers, Months later, only for him to discover that a winner who has the same business idea and model as his has emerged winner. More so is that the organiser already adopted the business as his, but is flagging it under the name of the supposed winner!
Pitching to investors can be risky, according to some people BTS, their reasons being that these investors steal your ideas or want 50% of your business.

Entrepreneurs solve problems by proffering actionable Solutions and making money while at it, while Investors Sow little and reap bountifully, says one of my friends behind the scene of the shoot. I have the money, you have the idea, you can't have it all say another one BTS, Investors steal ideas of Entrepreneurs, Entrepreneurs are gullible in the hands of investors, Do Entrepreneurs need Investors? Leveraging is better than giving your ideas to Investors without any copy writing, signed documents, or in an opened challenge where people can see and hear, these and more are the arguments and comments of the pained entrepreneurs BTS.

The Question is; How can entrepreneurs protect their intellectual property? Yes! no idea is unique to one person, but what makes yours unique to you? Should we call the case above an issue of plagiarism?
As an Entrepreneur, what challenges have you had with investors?
As an investor, why will you fund a business? Will you give loans, grants or take a percentage of the business?

MONDAY RANDOMS - DEAR MR MAN; SHE LOVES THE GOOD THINGS OF LIFE

Hi all, I know I haven't been regular on the Monday random gist, but guess what guys! I am here with an interesting writeup, more like a message.
So I was on set for a talk show over the weekend, and behind the scene, the ladies got talking, about how they want to meet a made guy! A guy who is ready to spend lots of money on them, in an argument, one of the ladies said "look here, like men, women love good things too" So Mr Man, you men should work hard! I cant be with a man who has vision with no action! 
Then the guy responded with "You should learn to be an independent woman before looking for a made guy, if a girl loves me, she would wait for me"
Then I remembered this amazing writeup by my friend. More like a letter to the male folks!

SHE LOVES THE GOOD THINGS OF LIFE

Dear Mr Man,

You see, I believe that there are some girls who have built themselves into a walking, 'prettified' version of human mental invalids. These are the ones who think they cannot think or survive on their own, much less thrive on their own. These ones depend on men for everything- from the Brazilian hair on their coconut heads; to the eyelashes on their visionless eyes to the fixed nails on their idle hands; to the clothes on their lazy bodies.

Mr Man, from this girls, flee- with the back of your legs touching the back of your head.

But Mr Man, this is not a license for laziness on your part.

I have seen extremely lazy men lose women of value in their lives yet say three funny things.

1. Whatever is rightfully mine, nobody can take from me. [Mr Man, have you never heard of Godogodo, the one-eyed armed robbery czar who terrorised Lagos and other south-west states, taking what rightfully belonged to others?]

2. If you love her, let her go. If she comes back, she is yours. [Mr Man, who are you deceiving? People are moving forward, you're waiting for her to come backwards.]

3. Any woman who leaves a man of vision to date a boyfriend with television will one day watch that man of vision on her boyfriend's television. [What kind of "-ision" motivational quote are you consoling yourself with? Keep making yourself happy. The wise woman has found out that you don't have "VI" not to talk about "SION"]

Look here Mr Man… women, like men, love the good things of life. And women of vision and value, willing to work, invest, reach for their goals and not give excuses, won't stay long with a lazy man whose only possession is "big dreams".

Eagles congregate with eagles. Only eagles.
