If you’re sick and tired of your job and would really like to build a business around the area of your passion, then this is going to be the most important blog post you ever read. In this post, you will learn the exact steps you need to launch a profitable business around what you love.

One of the most painful things I have witnessed in my career as a business coach is the agony of people who wake up each day compelled by their ever-growing bills to go spend the most active part of their life working on a job they hate so passionately. It’s pure torture… but that’s how many people live.

So many people wish they could go out there and do what they really love and are passionate about but they’re stuck because…the bills have to be paid. So sad. They stay in the prison called job and hope for a better tomorrow – a ‘one day’ when they will finally be free to follow their passion. Sadly, this one day never comes for most people and they work until they’re either tired & retired or get fired.

Too bad.

A few years ago, I was exactly in this place; I hated my job, my job was too demanding that I did not have the time to do the things that matter most to me – take care of my family. And on top of this, my boss was a real pain. He made my life miserable. Until I resigned to find and follow my passion.

It has been over five years now and I have been able to build a 7-figure business that I am excited about each day – I go to bed late and wake up early with so much enthusiasm when I need to because I love what I do and what I do, loves me!

Have you ever wondered if it’s possible for you to make money doing what you love? It could even be by the side at the beginning then gradually, you will go fully into it and ditch the job you hate.

Well, you no longer have to wonder and wish you could make it happen for yourself…
After quitting my day job, building my own 7 figure business and helping hundreds of people launch their own profitable business in the area of their passion, I have decided to share the exact 5 steps process which you – and this is regardless of your education, religion or origin – can use to launch a profitable business around your passion, talents, skills, expertise or experience.

Are you ready? Let’s go.

  1. Become really clear on the problem your passion solves
  2. Identify who it solves the problem for
  3. Prune your passion
  4. Package your passion
  5. Promote your passion shamelessly.

I can guarantee that if you follow the exact steps mentioned here religiously for 90 days, you will be smiling to the bank. Of course, I understand this is a summarized version of the 5 points.

In order to help you take action on these steps, I have prepared a comprehensive guide for you. In this guide, I go over each of the 5-step process in detail showing you what you need to do at every point in time.

Oluwarantimi Donatus: Diesel Exhaust Fumes Are Not Good For Your Health » Lifestylenaija | Breaking Celebrity Gist | Lifestyle | Entertainments



People who live in large cities like Lagos, Port-Harcourt and Ibadan are exposed to diesel exhaust in their everyday life, either through their occupation or ambient air. Toxic gasses emitted from diesel vehicles and generators contribute to thousands of unreported deaths in Nigeria yearly.

Many Nigerians use electricity generators of varying capacities as an alternative source of power due to the unreliability of electricity supply. Diesel engines from vehicles and electricity generators release a toxic mix of small particles (exhaust) called particulate matter. The particulate matter is created during the incomplete combustion of fuels such as diesel, petrol, natural gas, fuel oil, etc.

Exhaust from cars and generators account for the majority of urban air pollution. The exhaust of a vehicle or generator is expelled and released into the environment through the exhaust pipe or propelling nozzle.

Particulate Matter Found in Diesel Exhaust

  • Sulfates
  • Ammonium
  • Nitrates
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Condensed organic compounds, and even
  • Carcinogenic compounds and heavy metals such as arsenic, selenium, cadmium and zinc.

Health Effects of Diesel Exhausts

Though the diesel exhaust varies in sizes, they are mostly ultrafine particulates which are small enough to penetrate the cells of the lungs. These particulates cause a lot of effects to human health. Particulate matter irritates the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs, contributing to respiratory and cardiovascular illnesses and even premature death. They also hurt the respiratory system, causing coughing, choking, reduced lung capacity and asthma. Research has shown that exposure to high levels of diesel exhausts causes cardiovascular diseases, lung tumors and cancer

Environmental Impacts of Diesel Exhaust

Diesel engines in cars or generators release much particulate matter directly into the air and they transform into “secondary” particulates in the atmosphere. They affect the environment by causing global warming, acid rain, climate mitigation, loss of agricultural production, and they damage ecosystems, thereby harming human health.

According to the study published in the Nature journal, diesel vehicles, particularly buses, lorries and heavy-duty vehicles around the world, produce 4.5 million tonnes more diesel exhaust than they should under international emission standards.

Solutions to Diesel Exhaust Pollution

  • Cleaner Fuels – The government should adopt more stringent fuel standards to reduce the amount of sulfur allowed in diesel fuel. Lower sulfur diesel fuel allows the use of advanced emission control technologies, which when combined, can reduce emissions significantly.
  • Emission control equipment – Cars, buses, trucks, trains should all have equipment that can control the emission of diesel exhaust like a catalytic converter which will help vehicles to manage the discharge of diesel exhaust from the propelling nozzle.
  • The use of specialized exhaust filters – Vehicles with poor exhaust pipes or nozzles should be eliminated from all highways and streets to reduce the effect of diesel exhaust fumes that are released into the environment, and people should be advised to use specialized exhaust filters.
  • Encourage better engine design – Manufacturers of automobiles should build better engines that can undergo complete combustion of fuels.
  • Buying/replacing older vehicles – Scrap heaps should be replaced with better ones or to replace old cars with cleaner vehicles. The importation of already used automobiles from the western world to Nigeria should be reduced. This will help to reduce the amount of emission of exhausts that are being spewed to the air.
  • Carbon monoxide detectors should be installed in places like hospitals, markets, schools and offices.
  • The regulatory body responsible for the control of emission of exhaust gas on the road and environment should put in place stringent rules for automobile users to obey to avert the effect of exhaust fumes on human health. An automobile that lacks proper emission control equipment should be banned from plying the highway and streets.
  • Electricity generators should not be placed in the room or closer to the living rooms, and the exhaust pipe should always be directed away from the room.

Particulate matter hurts the environment and human health. In fact, they are so bad for the environment and our health that it accounts for over one-quarter of the total hazardous pollution present in the air.

Summarily, it’s pretty evident that diesel exhaust fumes, regardless of whether they come from a small car, large lorries, generators, or a giant manufacturing plant, are doing some severe damage not just to our health, but to the whole environment. It’s wise, therefore, that we do our best to limit our emissions of these gasses as much as possible.
