I had an amazing weekend!

I was at Z! Fest. How was your weekend?

I like that we start Mondays with Naira Life. The stories give me the ginger to start the week with the right energy; today is no different. I mean, look at the story: she fractures her knee while pregnant, but doesn’t have enough to fix the knee or have her baby, so she has to beg.

After that, she swore she was done with being broke.

If it was you, wouldn’t you feel the same way?

#NairaLife: She Had to Beg for Money. She Never Wants to Do That Again

Today’s subject on #NairaLife is motivated to make money for one reason: to be as far away from 2016 as possible.

In 2016, she and her husband had to pick between borrowing to save her unborn child and her fractured knee because they couldn’t afford both.

Today, they have over $300k in savings.

How did they do it?

The Love Currency: Dating in Benin on a ₦400k income

Openness in relationships is sweet to see. Take this couple for instance. They met just last year and today, they know how much is in the other person’s bank account at every time.

Would you do that in your relationship?

An excerpt: “She made sure I understood and accepted that she had nothing to bring to the relationship in terms of financial support. But she was also very clear that she had her father and siblings, so I shouldn’t think of her as my dependant.
