If you read the previous interview, I’m sure you were eager to know who the next health/ fitness expert will be. Dr. Chinasa is a Medical Doctor, certified online Weight Loss Expert, Meal Plan/ Nutrition Specialist, entrepreneur, and mum.

She is a true inspiration, has a very good heart, and was fun to chat with. I’m so happy that she accepted to be featured and made time for me despite her busy schedule.

I’ve included a podcast of this interview and our entire discussion, so you can listen if you prefer.

DIY | Personal Finance | Natural Hair

A few years ago I transitioned to natural hair for several reasons. One of the best parts is having to take care of my hair myself. This has helped me save money and improved my personal finance (at least in the aspect of hair care).

I can’t say it’s been extremely easy to make my hair myself, but in this video, I have shared my tips on how I’m able to do this.

Disclaimer:
DIY is not for everyone depending on how busy your schedule is. It’s okay to visit the salon once in a while (those are professionals), but if you want to live within a budget as a worker, then you should be willing to do some things yourself once in a while.

I hope this video inspires you and I hope you enjoy watching. Let me know in the comment section whether you make your hair yourself. What other thing do you do yourself?

4 Celebrities who Drastically Changed their Career (They are Inspiring!)

Celebrities are loved. That’s why they are famous and I have some celebrities that inspire me. Don’t you?

So many times I sit still and just think! I don’t think that’s creepy if you think it is anyway. Since I started blogging, I’ve had a handful of time to sit and try to be creative. I guess that’s what creatives do.

And many times I wonder what it’s like for other people who might have changed careers.

Since changing my career from law to human resources, I’ve also been able to add creative, blogger and writer as some professions of mine. Isn’t that cool?

And I’ve also thought of what it’s felt like for other people who aren’t ‘professionals’ but still have a career they build.

Do You Look Forward to Fridays?: Living a Well-Rounded Life

This week has been the longest, true story!

I thought to update the inspiration category of the blog as it’s been a while since I last did that. I recall publishing something quite similar here.

You know what’s funny? I’ve had this post drafted for some time and I was going to publish it last week Friday, but I hesitated. One of the reasons is because I don’t necessarily publish posts on Fridays if you’ve noticed.

I’m working towards sticking to a schedule, but of course, I understand that things may change every once in a while and it may be affected. Also, I don’t want to put out too much content so much that you barely have enough time to absorb it.

How to Handle an Overly Competitive Coworker

Don’t you just love a friendly competition? You and your coworkers or friends uplifting each other and breaking boundaries!

When Jamila left a comment at a previous post (read here) stating that she would like to see a post discussing how to deal with competition at work, I knew it was about time I drafted one (because I’ve had it on my mind for some time).

That not withstanding, I wanted to start out from a positive perspective before moving forward.

If that sounds cliché, I totally get it. Most people claim to be positive when in fact they are doing the extreme opposite. But it’s a better way to look at everything that has to do with life irrespective.

4 Doable Ways to Balance your Work/ Job and Relationships

When I decided to blog about balancing your work schedule with relationships of any form, I thought I was going to be the first person to write on it.

Or at least, one of the first few.

I thought to blog lightly in today’s post and discuss on more practical issues that affect most workers just as I did in my last video. Check out my video here.

As expected, the internet proved me wrong.

A little google research reminded me that there’s nothing new under the sun. Good news— everyone has a different take on the topic and that’s good enough for me!

So here’s me, giving you my two cents on this issue.

No Motivation to Go to Work? Find it Here (Easy Peasy!)

Everyone loves to talk about how they lack motivation on their jobs. Okay, not everyone, but almost everyone.

Sometimes, I think some workers have become so used to complaining  so much that they don’t realize that it’s become the norm. Like, one can even hear their thoughts.

In a previous article, I discussed how to discover if you lack motivation, because I was of the opinion that that was the first step to take. But, I also feel that inspiration has a way of influencing motivation.

That explains why I started out the inspiration category on the blog. I was of the opinion that we all need something or someone to inspire us to seek out the best in life, which of course, would include our jobs!

4 Bloggers that Inspire me – Career, Work-life & Intersection!

Several people inspire me in multiple ways that you can’t imagine. I’ve made it my mission to look for inspiration in the deepest of places and weirdest of imaginations.

I’ve had times when I was down and sought for inspiration but couldn’t find it. So I chose to search for it because I was of the opinion that it was a necessity.

I don’t want to be sad. I never want to have such a day in my life, but no doubt these things sure happen.

But if I can avoid it, then I should at least try.

I’m Back to Blogging, a ‘Get to Know Me’ Tag +A New YouTube Channel!!!

What better way to get back to blogging than a mini introduction especially for my new blog readers?

I’m sure many of you don’t know one or two things about the person behind the blog, so I thought this will be a great way to introduce or reintroduce myself as the case may be.

Taking a two weeks break was absolutely needed because I wasn’t feeling too inspired to write at some point judging from my recent workload and new responsibilities.

It surely felt like forever. I missed writing, but looking back now, I see that the break was valuable. I found inspiration in many places I wouldn’t have if I didn’t take time off.
