I Drank a Cup of Coffee for N4,000 and Here is What I Learned. (Part 1)

By Godwin Chibuike

The Year was 2018. The month was February. We were hosting the very first edition of the CEO Success Summit and yes, I was at the famous Lagos Oriental Hotel.

Since it was early in the morning, I was feeling a little sleepy. So I stepped into the restaurant section of the hotel to order coffee. I walked majestically into the restaurant like the boss and met the guy at the counter. He greeted me warmly.

Waiter: “Good Morning Sir! How can I help you?”

Me: “Good morning! Can I get a cup of coffee?”

Waiter: “Sure! And what else sir?” He asked handing me the menu!

One glance at the menu and I was pretty uncomfortable. The coffee was N3,000 (at that time). Water: N1,000, Coke: N1,000 etc.

The price list was ridiculous. Hold on… I told the waiter and I started walking away. When I left, I scoffed and said, how on earth are these people surviving with this ridiculous pricing?

Anyway, let me ask; can you buy a cup of coffee for N3,000? Well at that moment I thought I couldn’t, but later I was able to learn a lot from this one single experience. And this experience has helped me to lay a solid foundation for creating wealth.
