“The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us.” – Terri Marshall   What is it that makes the festive season so special? Is it the dazzling lights, the merry music, or the tasty food? Or is it something deeper and more meaningful that connects us all?   The festive season is a time of joy and celebration that brings people together from all walks of life.

"The future belongs to those who prepare for it." - Malcolm X   The arrival of September is forever tied to a back-to-school mentality: school fees, new shoes, school supplies, bus fares, and early-hours “gymnastics” with the children. We all agree schools play a critical role in helping children feel connected, as parents, guardians, and educators it is incumbent upon us to provide a safe and supportive environment. Helping children feel connected is critical to helping them thrive mentally, physically, and academically. Sadly, not all children receive education not to talk of quality education. According to UNICEF, one in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria. The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) states that there are over 10 million children at the primary level and a further 8 million children at the junior secondary level who are out of school. Globally, Nigeria accounts for 15% of the ...Read more

What Your Investment Says About You

  What is that one thing you are unable to do without once you come in contact with money? Some are big spenders. They can’t help buying that luxury car, shoe or gadget. Others just like to live a ‘larger than life’ lifestyle; go to the latest hangouts, travel on exotic vacations, or buy drinks ‘on the house’. Just as no two people’s personalities are the same, our approach to money and how we manage it aren't the same.  According to Zig Ziglar, "Rich people have small TVs and big libraries, and poor people have small libraries and big TVs." What he simply means is that the order of priority between these two classes displays their personalities. The rich will buy books and educate themselves by reading books on wealth generation and how to develop and increase their wealth.
