Quotes From the Book

"When you work hard and you are passionate about what you do, you make it easy for God to bless you."

"Again at UNILAG, I attempted playing football, but the recurring leg injury would not allow me to play well. I had to go back to ‘talking sport’. Little did I know that…"

"God gives us the grace but we must run the race."

"The path to where you are going might be difficult but if you can push your way through, you will get there."

"Your money must sweat as you sweat, your money must wake up and work everyday."

"I was not paid for it in the early days – I had to do the paying. But while I was perspiring, people were noticing. People were saying, ‘oh, there is a way he talks sports differently from others.’ So when it was time to apply for the licence for the first sport radio station in Africa, it was easy for the Federal Government to approve."

"There is never enough capital for any business."

Personally, I have read the book up to three times drawing vital insight on diverse facets of life each time. I realize – just like Dr. Sunny Obazu-Ojeagbase who wrote the book’s forward said, "it is unusual to find a Nigerian open up his life like a book for everyone to take a peep into it as Larry does in this soul-lifting book" – that if someone in my part of the world, who exemplifies the cliché, ‘from zero to hero’, evidenced in the role model enterprise as Brila FM writes his story in a book, I must get it.
