This is another post on the review of The King woman series. If you have not seen/read the previous post you should check it out. Watching Tara’s episode made me appreciate the Tara brand even more. Tara Fela Durotoye built and is still building the “Tara” brand out of desire, faith and passion. You think that is simple?, wait until you are in the same situations that challenged her, then you will understand the guts it took and still takes. In this post i am sharing 5 lessons i learnt from Tara Fela Durotoye: One day you will be grateful for the experiences you haveRead More →

Let go and let God

I Started out the week with major excitement and i still am. However i thought i would have left the island this week but God had other plans. I get to add an extra week, but I’m taking it in good fate. There are definitely those moments in life when we loose control of things and then once again i am reminded that i can’t afford to have all my moves work out as calculated. Despite making plans, we must learn to let go and let God. There are those times that will also require us to be spontaneous. Now this is where frustration setsRead More →

THE KING WOMAN

I appreciate Kemi Adetiba for coming up with such an initiative – THE KING WOMAN. These are stories that need to be shared to inspire people who may never get to have a personal encounter with these king women. Talk about strength, eloquence and charm – the three words i used to describe Taiwo Ajayi Lycett. After watching the part 1 (here)  and 2 (here)  of this series I have had to go back and listen again. Ahhh! it’s a lot to take away, as each time i listened i got something new so i thought , why not document this and voila!!..these are the lessonsRead More →

Loyalty

I recently had to write a commendation letter for one of my superior and I found it a great priviledge to do them the favor. According to G.K Chesterson, We are all in the same boat in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty. It felt like the perfect opportunity for me to give back. For once i was on the other side – the giving end. This might seem trivial but it’s not everyday you get to be the one writing your superior a commendation letter. As a matter of fact, it was new to me. It inspired me to makeRead More →

Depression let's talk

It is funny how the most random conversations turn into moments you will treasure for a lifetime. I met someone online and a business conversation turned into what i describe as predestined. This was also at a very odd hour of the day. As the chat progressed i could not place my hands on why this had to be happening at that time of the day – 2:30am and through the oddest means – social media. Well, today is World health day and it focuses on Depression, Lets talk!. We live in a world where everyone presents as being so busy, we don’t see theRead More →

7reasons why buying a planner now is not late

We are in the fourth month already, with eight more to go? Are you having fun? They said time flies when you are having fun right? The other day, I was thinking of a gift for a dear someone, and the idea of a yearly planner came to me. Just as i was about to rule it out because i felt the year was already far spent, i had to reconsider. According to Dwight Eisenhower  “Plans are nothing, planning is everything “. I like to add here that – A planner is the perfect tool! It is never too late to catch up with yourRead More →

What does it really take?

This post was inspired by the Hunger games Movie and the fact that the Month of March celebrates Women. These are a few of the many remarkable stories of women that made me appreciate that we are stronger than we are made to think. Being the first takes a lot, but even more when you are a woman. Lets not even talk about the other parts to being a woman. They made big things happen by whatever means possible. From those breaking boundaries (an creating a new norm) to those conquering in male dominated sectors. Just name it. 19 year old Halima Aden Halima wentRead More →

You eventually leave a life of lack and embrace a life of impact. These 4 habits will help you live a life of impact Stop Complaining You need to stop it.

Life of impact

You know “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade out of it”. If it shows you pepper, pluck it and make pepper soup (I prefer this version). When you experience difficulty, you will win by deciding to leave the life of lack and embrace the life of impact.  The lemons and the peppers will distract you if you are not careful. Often times we focus on the pepper and give up by failing to go out there and search for the other ingredients. Hence you do not make the pepper soup. Now those who are celebrated are the ones that went out of theirRead More →

  The mind is very strong part of our existence. They say that, the mind is like a garden and our thoughts are the seeds we plant in it. Apparently, we cannot control the thoughts that come to our mind. Thankfully, we can actually control what we choose to do with the thoughts. There are those thoughts that are welcome, the type you want to capture, analyze, build on and watch grow into something productive and possibly tangible. You practically watch it grow from a simple abstract idea to the point when it gains expression in the physical. On the other hand, there are ofRead More →
