Hi, i am Ajaero Tony Martins (+23480XXXXXXXX – Please use the contact form below to reach me); an entrepreneur, investor and an Agent of Change. I am the CEO of Firefly Technologies, and the founder of the Most Popular Business Blog in Nigeria “MyTopBusinessideas.com” (512,000+ page views per month as at Oct 2013 ).
I am also the founder of KAMMA, a platform that will be launched on the 1st of January 2014.

I believe i am an agent of change because I have positively affected the lives of millions of people all over the world. I have inspired and challenged thousands of youths all over the world to take control of their destiny and financial life. Lastly, I have revolutionized several businesses round the world; both directly and indirectly.
I have a goal to retire at the age of forty but i think i will fail on this goal. How can i retire at 40 when there are lots of problems to be solved, and products to be created? I can’t just sit back when i know there are opportunities out there!!! I think i will tow the path of Steve Jobs, Ingvar Kamprad, Aliko Dangote and Warren Buffett. If God grants me life, i will work, until i can work no more. – Ajaero Tony Martins
Now if you must know; I am a Nigerian by birth and i am proud of this identity. I started out in business by first working in my dad’s small company; where i honed my skills and saw what it takes to run a successful business. By virtue of working with my dad, i have had the opportunity to play in the building materials and clothing industry. I am also an investor in the stock market but i am currently making a move into real estate development.

My Dreams, My Vision, My Goals, My Businesses
Life Can Be Funny. I Spent 16+ Years Studying as a Science/Engineering Student. Yet, the Most Useful Subjects in My Life Now is Accounting, Economics, Business and Financial Management. Subjects I Didn’t Even Learn in School. – Ajaero Tony Martins
When it comes to starting a business and running a successful business, i have experienced the highs and joys of business; i have also felt the pains and bitter side of business. I have had my own share of business failures, so i practically know what entrepreneurs go through daily especially in a tough country like Nigeria.
Now if you must know; i am a stickler for dreaming big and achieving big goals. That’s why my blog, MyTopBusinessideas.com is the biggest and most popular business blog in Nigeria and the fastest growing entrepreneurship blog in the world (512,000+ page views per month as at Oct 2013 ).
“Thank God it’s Friday.” is the most popular phrase for lazy people. In the world of successful people, there’s nothing like weekends……..If you want to get rich and stay rich, then you need to shun this TGIF notion. Everyday is an opportunity you can’t afford to miss. After all, the rich and poor both have 24hours/day….but it’s how the rich uses this 24hours that makes them rich.” – Ajaero Tony Martins
One of my goals is to become a billionaire in my lifetime; and i intend to achieve this goal by building a conglomerate and making a couple of long term strategic investments. You may think this is too ambitious but that’s me for you. I believe this goal is possible for me because i have the knowledge of what needs to be done and i have a team of mentors, role models, advisers and good friends i can turn to for advice.
Networth is Nothing…..Cash Flow is Everything. You Can be Worth $100M and Still Be Broke. Cash flow is more powerful than networth. – Ajaero Tony Martins
If you are interested in knowing why i set such a big goal, i will suggest you read How to Become a Billionaire, “Why I want to become a billionaire” and “How I Plan to Achieve my Goal to Become a Billionaire.”You can also find out more about my beliefs and guiding philosophy here.
“The higher you go in life, the less rules and laws you are subjected to.”………..My dad once told me this: Never ever regard yourself as being one of the masses, strive to join the elites of the society….Why? The reason is because the masses are at the end of the food chain……Just like worms and grasshoppers. – Ajaero Tony Martins
