Repost @businessdayng. What are your thoughts? ・・・ Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger than the person being mentored, but he or she must have a certain area of expertise. . . . . Mentoring is a learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn. . . . Mentorship experience and relationship structure affect the "amount of psychosocial support, career guidance, role modeling, and communication that occurs in the mentoring relationships in which the protégés and mentors engaged." . . . The person in receipt of mentorship may be referred to as a protégé (male), a protégée (female), an apprentice or, in the 2000s, a mentee. The mentor may be referred to as a godfather or godmother or a rabbi. . . .
Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé)". . . . Who are your mentors? What do they do for you? Do you have the right mentors for where you are going?
There is work to be done. Effort needs to be made to achieve that dream. _ The easy investment, the fast investment, all returns guaranteed comes at a price. _ Am expecting the ‘investment bubble’ to burst at some point. _ All kinds of ‘investment’ products are being created for the undiscerning. The financially illiterate will bear the cost.
Yesterday was emotional for me, as I took my younger daughter to try out for a football academy and my elder daughter to a gymnastics class. Taking the kids to different classes one after another took my whole morning but the joy on my kids faces made it all worth it. One even sang ‘I love you’ over and over for me o!🤣🤣🤣 _ I could have been afraid, taking my 3 year old daughter to play Football. It’s a very physical exercise but she had no fears and I didn’t want our limitations and fears, under ‘concerned parents and grandparents’ to stop her. I have always told my kids they can do anything, I needed to put my money where my mouth had been!🤣🤣🤣 _ So what fears do you have? Have you tried it? Have you investigated? Will you take baby steps? Are wait in the sidelines? _ I love a friend’s response to why the Israelites took 40 years to enter the promised land. The Israelites didn’t face their fears and it overcame them. What fear do you need to face? There is nothing too hard for our God!
Make a conscious effort to surround yourself with positive, encouraging and uplifting people. Repost from @anurikaazub. . . . This was at a Breakfast meeting discussing women and equality organised by #britishcouncilnigeria and @sheleadsafrica. In second Pix: Sitting with Sarah Champion, Member of Parliament and UK Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities; Connie Price, Country Director, British Council Nigeria. . . . Can’t compete with my able Legal Counsel @inblack_and_white but I think @bcakoms, @anurikaazub and I did a good job of showing different ways to wear black and white! And no, we didn’t plan it o! We met there o! ・・・ In the words of a mentor of mine @victorekpobassey , are you inspired by the company you keep? Make use of today to connect with inspiring people you attend @theoffice_ng where I will be speaking along side Ella George-Uduku of @hillbridgeconsulting 😎

All I see is ‘INVESTMENT’! . . This is one format of investment I like. Debt type of investment is the type many are aware of. An example is: I will give you my money and you will give me a return(interest) of 10% at x time. Get it? . . Treasury bills, fixed deposits, bonds and commercial papers are examples of debt investment in a (government) regulated environment. Borrowing your friends money or borrowing a business(Agric, fish farming, perfumery)!at a certain interest is another example of debt investment but unregulated. . . Equity investment is a different ball game and there are also versions of it that can include some debt element from the investors. The opportunity with equity investment is huge but there are risks few learn how to manage and profit from. . . Maybe with today’s prices, you would love to be an Amazon shareholder($1,755) or Nestle Nigeria (N2,785) if you bought it 5 years ago. Or maybe you are hoping to be private investors of some known brands that are thriving such as @houseoftara_i or start up or young business. They are all options but not everyone of it might be right for you. Know the difference.
There are few things as transforming as a mother’s love. She is in service to you. You are always the apple of her eyes. She is consistently looking out for the best for you. _ My mother transformed my thinking and my life. She made me think I could do anything and I believed her. I still believe her. It’s always hard remembering this hour when I got the call that she was not breathing. _ I was pregnant with my second child at the time. My mother was God to me for a long time! The fear of mum shaped many decisions for a while. Lol story for another day. But our relationship evolved and she became my best friend as I matured. Literally my confidant and my buddy. _ I still regret not knowing all the things I wanted to ask her but deferred till later. I wish she stayed here a while longer but I have accepted that this is selfish of me. I want her here for me, because of the love she showed me. Because I could bask in her non-judgemental love. I was and can never be perfect, but to a mother, you are always perfect. _ Little did I know during our call the night before when I said go and rest, that it would be for good. I miss you Iya Tolu. But am happy you have gone to rest.
