Barry Choi: Personal Finance And Travel Expert

Did you ever think that travel and finance could go hand in hand? Very often, when we think of travel we expect that so much money will be spent with nothing left to be saved. Barry Choi is here to prove us wrong!

Barry studied radio and television broadcasting in college and worked in the industry for 18 years. During that time he worked behind the scenes and learned more than a dozen jobs, but towards the end of his television career,  he was mainly a Director.

In January of 2018, he decided to leave broadcasting for a number of reasons and started writing about finance and travel for a variety of clients. You can read more about why Barry quit his job and changed career after 18 years.

Chanèle McFarlane: Full-Time Entrepreneur (Writer, Speaker, PR Specialist & More)!!

Ever thought of becoming a full-time entrepreneur? I first met Chanèle at a networking event she hosted and I immediately loved her personality and hard work.

Late last year, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, she announced that she had decided to become a full-time entrepreneur.

I’ve had readers request that I feature someone who’s turned an idea to business. So one of my goals is to have some full-time entrepreneurs share their stories for workers who want to go that route.

Jac Mizeur: 11th & 12th Grade English Teacher, Book Lover & Fashion Blogger!

“Mrs. Mississippi, I love you, I love you. My love for you will never ever die.”

That was the song we chanted almost on a daily basis for my nursery school teacher when I was still a young child. Indeed, my love for her isn’t dead. This explains why I still remember this chant.

The first day I came across Jac Mizeur, I immediately knew that I wanted to feature her in the Magazine segment. From my experience, I don’t think teachers are celebrated well enough.

Adriel Gavazza: IT Specialist, Health & Fitness Enthusiast

Fitness is really important and not only for workers. For a long time, I’ve always admired people who strive to improve their health and fitness lifestyle. I’ll be sincere that I’ve been hard on myself for a while. I ask myself if they have more than the same number of hours in a day to be productive and make a conscious decision to live a healthy lifestyle.

Some weeks ago, I decided to feel inspired and went ahead to interview two wonderful people on their healthy life choices. The first was Adriel Gavazza and you’ll learn more about him in this post.

Ufuoma Okumagba : Business Specialist & Travel Blogger (23 Countries & Counting!)

Ufuoma Okumagba is one of those people that inspires me to actualize my travel goals. Asides the fact that she is a travel blogger and writes really well on travel related topics that I can relate to, she also works full-time.

I like the fact that she’s so down to earth through her posts and always willing to share.

Some years back, my mom ensured that she took my sister and I for our first trip outside the shores of Nigeria. We visited London, UK. That was when I fell in love with travel and vowed to travel often.
