Rebuilding my Business – The Talent Publishing with Jesus

15 So on October 2 the wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun. 16 When our enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of our God. Nehemiah 6:15 – 16 NLT

1 So in April 2023 the rebuilding of The Talent Publishing was completed—just five years after I started. 2 It brought great hope to many that desired to make progress and impact in life. They realized this work had been done with the help of my God. Adeyinka‬ ‭5‬:‭1‬ -‭ 2

The results from my previous experience in running my publishing business had not been encouraging despite all the efforts expended, so I had decided not to pursue it for the time being, thereby giving me more time to focus on my other commitments. However, in March 2018, I published the book, Diary of a Coincidental Pastor, Embracing the Divine Appointment in your Disappointments to kickstart the rebranding and rebuilding journey of my business – The Talent Publishing as led by the Lord. As I wrote in the book, I reluctantly agreed with the leading of the Lord to write, publish and print the book. Little did I realise that this step of faith in obedience will lead to a turnaround in rebuilding my business.
As I continued the rebuilding journey, in December 2019, I published, Diary of a Grateful Milkman – The Power of Gratitude; this publication was initially planned for release in March 2019 but events of life delayed it till December 2019.
With this publication, I made the strategic decision to produce my publications as digital downloads available from The Talent Publishing App. I had already completed the rebranding of the app from The Talent Journal App to The Talent Publishing App; this enabled me to maximise the potential of the app by moving it from a single publication app to encompass the multiple publications the publishing brand will be producing.
I had to complete the release of Diary of a Grateful Milkman – The Power of Gratitude because in August 2019, I had received inspiration and clarity on the next publication – Conference Digest 2020, which was initially scheduled to be published in July 2020. This was a great restoration of an inspiration for a project the Lord gave me in 2013.
Due to events of life, I was eventually able to publish in May 2021, Conference Digest 2020, Volume 1 – Amazing Grace, Conference Digest 2020, Volume 2 – Power to Create Wealth, Conference Digest 2020, Volume 3 – Greater Exploits.
In 2013, I wrote a book, How to Become Debt Free by Discovering your Talent – A Seven Steps Model, in the course of my rebuilding journey, the Lord inspired me to rebrand this into the publication, How to Become Financially Secured by Discovering your Talent – A Seven Steps Model, I was able to release this in July 2022.
The book written in 2013 formed the basis for the Talent branding for my business.
In the course of my Talent Journey to Overflowing Harvest, the Lord clarified the goals:
  • from just being debt free to becoming financially secured with multiple streams of income

  • from just making a living to cover financial commitments to creating sustainable wealth to become a blessing

  • from just getting by to become a Kingdom Achiever producing fruits in every good work

A critical need for the success of the business was a website to promote my products, services, events and merchandise.
In November 2020, I commissioned the building of my website – thetalentpublishing.com in addition to three other websites – royalcity.org.ukfolukeoshin.com and overflowingharvest.com. Coupled with the demand from my other commitments, I was able to work with my technical providers to complete the other three websites but was not able to complete the work for my website.
In October 2022, I resumed the process to work on my website and was eventually able to go live in June 2023.

1 So in April 2023 the rebuilding of The Talent Publishing was completed—just five years after I started. 2 It brought great hope to many that desired to make progress and impact in life. They realized this work had been done with the help of my God. Adeyinka‬ ‭5‬:‭1‬ -‭ 2

You might wonder, it took five years to complete the rebuilding of The Talent Publishing. Five solid years to complete this rebuilding project. Let me put this in perspective. During those five years,

  • working to explore new opportunities for the project
  • the entire process was therapeutic to support me rebuild my mental health
In addition to the above, I was committed to my other responsibilities for my family, ministry and friends.
Yes, it took five years to complete the rebuilding of The Talent Publishing but I am able to complete it because I started the process and did not give up despite my other commitments and numerous intense opposition towards the project. All glory be to God for His grace, wisdom, favour and help that kept me going to achieve these amazing results. I am grateful to Almighty God for sustaining me, for the gift of resilience, diligence and persistence. I am grateful to all my partners of destiny who supported and contributed to the successful rebuilding of The Talent Publishing.
With Jesus in the boat of your life, you can rebuild and turnaround your life, faith, family, work, business, finances and health.
