I remember my mother’s slogan for a woman without a job. Mummy being a Yoruba woman will say “obirin ti ko ba ni ise ni apa, aso re a pon” directly translated as “a woman without a job will not have beautiful clothes to wear”. Not any more ooo is the response on a lot of lips reading this.

I have heard people say recession has more impact on the woman, this reminds me of a function I attended where Ibukun Awoshika gave a speech, in her speech, she said and I quote “wisdom behooves on the woman that, she reset herself for the season she is in, the 21st century woman is open to more opportunities than the man”.

You know, I have always wondered at the fact that 90% of the hunt for food is carried out by the lioness whilst the lion stay home to watch over the cubs.

Woman, why do u think you are disadvantaged? You are in the best form and shape for the best opportunities! You can achieve anything and everything.

My very close friend, a 63 year old woman, who with her little education is a big believer in hard work and self-dependence, is building another house with a monthly income of less than N50,000.00.

I entered 2017 with a main financial thought to have multiple streams of income. To be a financial giant and own my sets of businesses.

Enough of looking up to people for hand downs or cheap favours, it is time I took my financial destiny in my hands. Is this the echo of your heart despite the seasons we are in?

Have you tried so many times and failed? Try again – Think about it, conceive it, keep seeing it happen so that when the opportunity comes your way, you will see it, because you were waiting for it.

Not only have I started one of the many businesses, I have also employed and empowered members of families and strangers.

I choose to be different because I AM! I AM A WOMAN WITH A FINANCIAL VOICE!
