Volume 80

Good morning,

What’s your money superpower? For some people, it’s saving. Others find it in investing. For someone like the lady in this week’s #NairaLife, it’s knowing how to make money. I guess you could call her a jack of all trades. However, a downside is that she doesn’t stick to one thing long enough. What does this mean for her?


Away from Naira Life, the second story in this newsletter explores financial dynamics in marriages. The lady in the story doesn’t think it’s fair that she’s her home’s sole breadwinner. But how did she get here?

Oh, by the way, there’s a fun little quiz at the end of today’s newsletter: answer a few questions, and we’ll tell you which Nigerian billionaire you are.

Let’s get into it.
