In all situations we have options, to even do nothing is an option- Emeka Nobis, CEO Profound Impacts International



Brief Introduction
My name is Emeka Nobis. I was born on July 1st, 1980 into the family of Mr and Mrs Joseph Chijioke Nobis. I hail from Ubulu, Oru-West L.G.A, Imo State. I am the first son and the first of five children of my parents.
I studied Mechanical Engineering at Federal University of Technology where I graduated with a 2nd Class Upper degree in 2003. I've worked as an engineer for 9 years.
I'm an artist - I create literary pieces that evince change within individuals, as a thought leader, I help individuals who have a message to share with humanity, but are scared, doubtful, and confused to gain clarity in their message, build formidable platforms for the sharing of their ideologies, and to also earn by engaging in the business of their enterprise.
I pen my thoughts on my my blog - www.emekanobis.com three times a week. By doing so, I help individuals live their best lives always.
Tell us how you came about your business online?
 Business is simply a means to achieve a goal. It's a system that is organized to do what I can do in a way that's faster , easier and replaceable. The online world is a medium I leverage on to maximize the reach of my business' offerings.

For how long have you been in it?
 I have been in business for 5 years now. My company, Profound Impacts International, became incorporated in 2011.

 How did you start/when did you start off officially and what is the name of your brand?
 My company is Profound Impacts International. My personal brand is Emeka Nobis. My personal brand has always been there, but I became intentional with its ability to add colour to people's lives in 2007, shortly after my return from a one-year stay in Italy.
That happened when I noticed that people were taking my pieces of advice that I had given them in casual conversations and putting them to work and getting phenomenal results. It was then that I had an epiphany.

 How do you generate your ideas?
Ideas can hit at me anytime - during a bath, in the toilet, in a bus, during meetings with clients or when seeing a movie. Just about anytime, an idea can just hit and I work on the feasibility. Some ideas take time to nurture and grow while some can be implemented almost immediately as they hit me.
I also generate ideas through keen observation of phenomena around me. When I listen to conversations and by asking relevant questions, I see challenges in people's lives that I can offer solutions to.
Also, I ask questions to the subscribers on my blog. I tell them to send me questions regarding the challenges of their lives and they do. By working on those challenges, ideas for developing products hit me and I work on them.

 Apart from being a content media expert what else do you do?
Via the coaching program called Writers Platform Growth System which I designed, I coach writers on how to grow their platforms and be exceptional as writers. Also, I coach individuals who have expertise in different areas of endeavour to gain clarity about their messages and build their individuals platforms so that they can showcase their expertise, reach out to the tribe that they are to reach, and also to earn by their entrepreneurial strives.

 How many hours do you work a day on average?
 My work hours aren't fixed. I can work between 6 to 12 hours per day, depending on the project I'm working on.The beauty of it is that those hours spent on creative work don't seem like drudgery.

What is your greatest fear, and how do you manage fear?
My greatest fear now is leaving the earth without coming to that point where I can beat my chest and say, "Yes, I've blessed lives in very phenomenal ways."

 What do you really care about (passion)?
There's this deep joy that floods my being when I see individuals see the light on the path that they're treading. When they gain that clarity, the joy is indescribable.

 How do you define success?
Success is successive attainment of my set goals. So when I launch a book that I set as a goal for the year, that is success. When I coach someone to the point of clarity and exceptional performance, that is success.
To me, there's no universally acceptable meaning for success. It's relative. What means success to someone is not the same for another.

What have been some of your failures, and what have you learned from them?
I've had some failures. When I launched my first book I didn't sell up to 1000 copies. I eventually gave away many copies. I learnt that just emerging on the scene with a book without first growing a platform of raving fans for your product is just too erroneous. Since 2011 when the book was published I have been doing just that - growing my platform and increasing my visibility.

What/who are/have been your influence?
I have an amazing array of individuals - foreigners and Nigerians - who influence me with their thought lives and activities. I will not be able to do justice to that list right here or single out a few for exceptional adulation because that would be very selective. I owe my excellence to them.
I read a lot of books of different genres. I listen audio messages and podcasts and I depend on God for his graces and words to my spirit via the holy scriptures.

Tell us about a time when things didn't go the way you wanted and how you came out?
In all situations we have options. To even do nothing is an option. There have been times when I wanted to host a seminar and didn't have the required number of people to take up spaces. The option left to me then was to cancel. Cancellation was how I came out of the ruckus and had peace of mind.
There was also a time that a mentor of mine resorted to religious manipulation that irked me. I had no other option but to quit the relationship so that I could breathe freely.

 How has being an entrepreneur affected your life?
It's an amazing life, one replete with hard and soft balls. There are lean times and there are bountiful times. The obstacles exist so that they can be overcome. Overcoming them is where the joy of victory comes.
Being able to add beauty to people's lives is such a promising and fulfilling entrepreneurial journey.

What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur?
There are a whole of skills to be imbibed as you journey from one lamp post to the along the path. To me, learning to be teachable is a skill we should first imbibe. Listening is a key skill too. And lastly, the skill of keen observation.

What are your long term goals?
As at now, I don't think I'm yet running an effective business model. Till I get to the point where my business can wholly and fully do what I can do without my being present always, then I can beat my chest to say that I truly have a business. That's my long term goal - being able to fully document y processes and systems such that anyone joining Profound Impacts International can replicate the processes and achieve if not the same results, but better ones.

What advice would you give to college students who want to become entrepreneurs?
They should spend time planning and setting up systems upon which their enterprises can run effectively. A system simply defines how you can achieve a goal that has been pre-planned. For example, if you want to coach top executives on peak performance, a system can entail knowing the requisite training modules, how to reach them, how to retain their patronage, and cash flow funnel from the products you design for them.
