My name is Moses and I want to get real with you for a minute.
I’ve always dreamed big, wanted to make something of my life, and deeply cared about people.
However, as a young teenager, I lived in poverty and shared a single room with my mother and other siblings.
Even though I had dreams for my life, I wasn’t sure how I was going to turn them to reality. It’s hard to think that without having any business experience I could go from a class room teacher in 2004 to running a multi-diverse investment group a couple years.
Now I’m committed to impacting 10 million lives. I teach people how to pursue the dream that burns inside them and how to earn a full time income while making an impact on the world and others.
I do this through my newsletter posts, videos, recommended books, , live events, experiential workshops and one on one interactions.
I’m so grateful where life has taken me and the life that I’ve chosen to design on a daily basis. I believe we are the authors of our own life, and I’m blessed for the adversity I’ve faced. It makes me appreciate my life now and have compassion for others who suffer in a much bigger way.
Always remember you were born for a reason, a purpose and something bigger than yourself. But YOU have to activate this calling; no one is going to turn it on for you! It’s Your Responsibility to build yourself into the person who can live a great life. No one is going to give you the power to develop your mental strength, emotional intelligence and physical health to have the life you want. That’s between you and you! I know there are times that are challenging, and it may seem like you can’t get out of it. I’m living proof that you can. If a small town boy from Bayelsa (who didn’t see any potential for his future) can do it, then so can you!
Your dreams matter because YOU Matter! Never forget that, but you must learn the wisdom, skills and tools to write your own story. Be the hero you were born to be. Start the journey with me because the world needs you my friend!

Today, Solalina investment Group and its subsidiary companies provide employment for youths in the Niger-delta reion, while empowering thousands through the Goldcoast developmental foundation. The group currently operates from its headquarters in Bayelsa state and branch offices in Lagos and Abuja
He is passionate about creating wealth, as he is about actions that stimulate lasting and impactful change. Therefore with the launch of the Goldcoast developmental foundation, Moses sought to create a framework, one that would combine traditional charity and business acumen to drive self-sufficiency among young people. Wholly self-funded, the Goldcoast developmental Foundation aims to provide access to basic needs for the under privileged, while also empowering young people with skills for self-sufficiency.
The foundation is dedicated to three core areas which include Health, education and strategic youth development. This is based on Moses’ believe that these three areas provide the core of empowered living. The foundation programmes are currently focused within the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria.
As its founder, Moses galvanizes both local and international support for the foundation’s activities, while also incorporating all his companies’ corporate social responsibilities to support the foundation programmes and projects.
