I look like the “dickhead” brother who can’t settle down

There are a handful of directions I could have taken with this post. I was blessed to take a vacation with my beautiful family, something we have not done in decades. The picture you see covers three generations from my mom, me and my siblings, and the younger nephews and nieces. As I prepared to ...

How I became Rich: Multiple Streams

I am a finance guy; my love for the subject has grown steadily ever since my older brother talked me out of studying mechanical engineering for undergraduate studies (I’m Nigerian aka STEM or die).

My Letter to Desmond Marrow

This post was inspired by Donald Glover’s “This is America” video. I caught myself watching the video and marveling about how creative and abstract Donald is: why he wear the pants with no shirt, why he shoot like that, ohhh so that’s why the white horse is there, why he shoot the choir, ohh that’s ...
