Personal lessons I learned that can be a stepping stone/guide to anyone.

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). Thankfully, God blessed me with a job right out of school in my field and I have climbed that corporate ladder ...

Are you a Man or a Young Man?

Life is sweet! I haven’t been as consistent with my blog posts due to everything God has been revealing to me. I’m 100% sure I’ll be going back to school this spring, getting a new apartment, visiting more family members, traveling, and taking on new responsibilities at work. That’s just to name a few things ...
