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?

How to Support a Colleague while Respecting their Privacy

A few days ago, I had an interesting chat with a colleague and we really talked about the workplace and respecting privacy. No doubt, maybe because I’ve been blogging about the workplace for quite some time, such conversations seem to interest me.

Most workers are lucky to have found true friendships with co-workers. All the same, one must remember to treat the workplace as such and not get carried away with growing friendship, especially, so that you don’t feel somewhat disappointed when you notice the slightest hint of competition at a later date.

Generally speaking, it’s not uncommon for colleagues to grow great bond and fondness especially if they share similar views and opinion to certain areas of interest. And let’s not forget that most workers spend an average of thirty-five hours a week at their various workplaces.

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.

Jackline: Nurse Practitioner & Personal Style Blogger

In this feature, Jackline shares useful information on personal style at work. We had planned to have this interview for a while but our schedules kept conflicting. We later did have a chat and I’m so excited to share it with you.

It’s a small world really because I later bumped into Jackline at a place I would never have imagined. Let’s just say I went somewhere I wouldn’t have normally visited and there was this inspiring woman!

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.

Are Entrepreneurs also Employees?

In high school, I started my first business. I was finally going to call myself an entrepreneur!

I was in JSS. 3 at the time, my third year in junior high. Typically called ‘secondary school’ in Nigeria. I’m not sure what that’s called in Canada, but if you are non-Nigerian reading this, I guess you understand what I mean.

We were a group of friends. Somehow I’ve always had a clique of friends all through my schooling years.

Anyway, three of us decided to start a retail business. We were going to buy cookies and sweets in dozens and sell them in units. By the time we started selling the first set, we were barely making 4 cents in profit.

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.
