A little peek at my diary on WEDNESDAY 9TH OCTOBER, 2013. High school was quite a period. Enjoy:

Well, today was good because the Chemistry practical was new today and then I missed Agric class.

In Physics class, I and Silvia talked for a long while, then we left the lab for English class. I met Ikiriko, trying to help her out in her Geography assignment before Nwagbara came and did it in a Technical way, both of us chatted but not for long.

I went to the Library, I was there till after the emergency assembly. I missed my Agric practical test.

I went to class searching for Favour Ikiriko, I couldn’t find her, then I begged Ruth Chigeru and Favour Okuguni to buy the hardcover Biology practical notebook. I gave her N150 for it and she asked for an extra N50 and I gave her.

A peek at the diary where the post was copied.

Then I met Benita outside our class and we held hands then I took her to SS3G where we talked for about three hours till around 5 pm.

Then we started leaving for the dorm, I asked her if she was thirsty she said “No!:

Meanwhile, while we were going to the dorm, Ikiriko saw us and as we were going to the dorm, Fenibo Esther, Ifeoluwa & Favour Ikiriko were at our back and then Benita told me she wanted to buy a Biology practical notebook and I bought one for her.

I came back to the dorm, Ojukwu was suspecting that I was in love with Benita and I told him I was not. Ibe also told me to ask Ikiriko Favour out that she will reply positively, I told him, no, that it will complicate my studies.

I went to the dining hall late. Reaching peace house, nobody was there, but I went to Honour house where I met IJ and Ibe, the about to be wedded couples (so they claim to be).

After talking to them, I went to Freedom house and I didn’t see Ikiriko, later I saw her and our eyes met and she shrugged her shoulders and I also did the same.

Gosh! I don’t know if I am crushing on Ikiriko or Benita but I still have to make my WAEC.

I wanted UNIPORT or UNICAL but Benita told me she would be going to UNILAG, UNIFE (that is OAU, Ile-Ife), UNIBEN as she can’t school in Port Harcourt that she has been a prisoner all her life that she has to see the outside world.

Quite a day! Can’t wait for tomorrow, those gorgeous eyes of Ikiriko or those charming eyes of Benita, either of them. Bye for now. See ya later!

WHY SECOND BORNS ALWAYS END UP AS A REBEL

family gathering for a group hug with second born

Over time, I have come to realize that second borns many times end up as rebels, and it bothers me. I have always wanted to know why.

I know it may not be a universal issue, but where I am from – Nigeria, about 80% of families have this issue.

Will it stop? What could be the reason? This, many modern parents have tried to know about.

Most modern children have even tried to stop it.

ALSO READ: CORPER DONT FOLLOW ANY FEMALE INDIGENE

I have seen firstborns grow under the tutelage of their parents, live and abide by the tenets and rules of their parents.

But then, the second child comes and go against those guide set by the parents.

I have seen firstborn children, grow up and make sacrifices for the parents and the family, sometimes, sacrifices that are too much for their own personal growth.

While the second born child comes out and creates his own path, ignoring the path that the parents expected him to walk in.

parents looking at their daughter second born

THE CAUSE?

Parents are part of it! You may wonder how? Many times, parents are so invested in making the first child a perfect little portion of themselves, they sometimes forget the second born.

Most times too, the parents idolize the first child and the second child starts feeling neglected and jealous of the first child.

This jealousy grows over time into hatred and the child just decides that he hate his family and their values and decides to go against them.

CAN PARENTS REALLY STOP MAKING THE SECOND CHILD JEALOUS?

That is another question to ask. Can parents really stop or control themselves from taking the first child special.

Parents are humans, and all humans are emotional, so the first child is usually the womb opener. /A lot of love is usually bestowed on that first child. Sometimes to the detriment of the second-born child.

ALSO READ: CORPER DONT FOLLOW ANY FEMALE INDIGENE

HOW CAN THIS BE STOPPED?

This is the one thing I would like to so badly know and I feel I may not be alone on this, as a lot of parents also need answers to.

But I feel the cause of this, is parents giving partial love, or one-sided love, which cannot be totally avoided.

Well, you can state your reason why this happens or what you feel is a solution to this, in the comment section here; and don’t forget to quickly share this post too.

THE ECONOMY WON’T GET BETTER

The economy won’t get better

The economy won’t get better, at least not anytime now. So, if you think things are worse, brace up, cos they will get worse.

You see, before the dreaded coronavirus hit our economy, there had been fears about the economy plummeting.

The virus only served to make those fears larger as there was a huge furlough (sacking) of many workers in various companies. Not just in Nigeria, the world economy plummeted.

WILL THE ECONOMY GET BETTER?

bitcoin and economy

As fears about it subside, you may still be hopeful that the economy will be better, but my dear, the truth is, IT WILL NOT, – not anytime soon.

The dream where the poor will grow rich is not feasible. Rather, the poor will get poorer; the rich will get richer. The middle class? ….they will fall into the poor.

But you can move against this flow. Only 2% of the world population will be able to move against this flow, and you can be among this 2%; trust me, you can!

But you will need to follow these PROVEN tips:

1. DREAM WILD

Just as you did when you were a kid. Dream wild, and don’t stop dreaming. Don’t lose that ability as a child to stop dreaming. If your dreams don’t scare you, then they are not worthy enough to be called dreams.

2. CREATE GOALS

Make sure you have goals, both short and long term. Write it down with a specific time frame to achieve it.

Also, state why you want to achieve that goal. Many times if the why of a goal isn’t strong enough, you will never achieve that goal.

One of the ways out of this to a better personal economy is GOALS

3. MASSIVE ACTION

Putting down goals without taking action is just like making a wish. Never postpone anything you can do today to the next day because when the tasks pile, it makes you less ready to complete them, and it also drains you mentally.

4. ACCEPT BLAMES

Start from now, I mean right now and begin to accept blames or you can as well call it responsibility. Because when you take the blame away from you, you make yourself powerless and give power to the person you are blaming.

Get some power for yourself by yourself! Cos, it might be a pandemic stricken economy, that is not getting better. But your personal economy can get better.

HOW TO RENT AN APARTMENT

apartment
A soft apartment

Renting an apartment has never been an easy one. A lot of people don’t take renting an apartment as seriously as they should.

I don’t understand those people. While renting an apartment is not buying, the place will serve as your home and should be considered carefully.

Not only is your home a big part of the way you feel about yourself, it’s also a reflection of how others see you.

Billionaires, even those who rent their homes, take time when finding places to live, and so should you.

ALSO READ: DEADLY REASON WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE SAVINGS OVER AJO?

In Lagos, Abuja and even in Port Harcourt City, a city I know quite well, people often feel lucky to find anything. There’s enormous demand, and sometimes hundreds of people will charge through the streets to look at expensive kitchennette called house.

Most of these people will be prepared, with quite an amount of money, and with a sense of competition that can be fierce.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO PLAY IN THIS APARTMENT MARKET?

To play in this apartment market, or any other real estate market, you have to do your homework. Have a clear idea of your financial needs and your living requirements.

Going blindly from apartment to apartment will be a waste of everyone’s time – particularly your own.

I feel strongly that an apartment should e rented with the help of a good broker (agent). It can be done without one, but to me, that’s like taking pills without consulting a doctor or filing a lawsuit without a lawyer. It’s possible but it’s stupid.

DO YOU REALLY NEED AN AGENT TO GET AN APATRTMENT

Brokers (Agent) know the neighborhoods and the specific markets in and out. They know the property values, the pros and cons of certain buildings, the rules and regulations of pricing and rents, and the ins and outs of the actual lease.

Most brokers (agents) are educated and licensed, and there’s good reason for that. They will prevent you from making mistakes that will cost you thousands, or even millions more than the fees that they charge. They will also save you time by filtering out apartments that do not meet your criteria.

SHOULD YOU REALLY BELIEVE AN AGENT WHEN GETTING AN APARTMENT?

No, you should never believe everything a broker (agent) tells you. The broker (agent) is, after all, only there for the commission, as concerned and accommodating as he or she may seem.

Study place in an apartment
Study place in an apartment

Also, when it comes to the commission, whether you’re selling, buying, or renting, always negotiate.

Sometimes, brokers do an amazing job and deserve a high commission, but when yo enter the relationship, always negotiate from the start. It’s much easier to negotiate the fee at the beginning of the relationship. Trying to change agreement with brokers (agent) midway through or at the end of a transaction is poor business form.

WHAT IF YOU DON’T WANT AN AGENT FOR YOUR APARTMENT?

If you cannot afford a broker (agent) or simply want to go it alone, look in the papers or on notice boards around the area. Ask around and walk around.

Some of the best stories I’ve heard are about finding apartments that simply came out of nowhere – kind of like those stories about easily getting a taxi in the evening hours of Christmas day.

WHETHER OR NOT YOU USE AN AGENT FOR YOUR APARTMENT….

Find somewhere you’ll be happy for a long time. Moving around every couple of years is disruptive and expensive. And most important, figure out what you can afford.

It may not be a concern for you, but I would advise you never spend more than twenty five percent of your salary on rent – no matter how fantastic an apartment you have found.

ALSO READ: DO BOYS LIKE FLOWERS ON VALENTINE’S?

Every kobo you pour into your rent is a kobo you could be using somewhere else — whether its for savings, for for utilities, or for enjoying the finer things in life.

HOW MUCH IS OKAY FOR YOUR APARTMENT?

It’s okay to stretch yourself slightly and anticipate that in a few years you may be making moremoney, but that is not a sure thing. Yes I know, God forbid! But it is not a sure thing.

Also, its safe to assume that your salary will increase at the same rate as your salary. Tenants that cannot pay rent will go nowhere fast – and certainly never get wealthy.

4 IMPORTANT TOOLS YOU NEED BEFORE YOU START AFFILIATE MARKETING

Affiliate marketing

You have heard a lot about digital skills and have decided it’s about time you jumped on Affiliate marketing.

Just before I delve in, I want to believe that you know what Affiliate marketing is. But if you don’t, let’s move away from the google and dictionary definitions.

I define Affiliate marketing as simply RECOMMENDING HELPFUL products to people who NEED them and can AFFORD them, for a COMMISSION.

It is a very perfect business as it requires little to nothing to start it. It is very profitable too. It is a business that pays me weekly. I am an Affiliate marketer with Expertnaire and I have made over N500,000 from it in the past 9 months.

Since it’s highly profitable, I understand you wanting to jump in on it; but before you start, there are 4 tools that I know are very important.

SMART PHONE

Smartphone

If anyone had ever told you that you can jump on Affiliate marketing with one. Fear that person. It is more like saying you can go to Europe from Nigeria on foot.

A smartphone does not necessarily mean an apple phone. It is just a phone that has access to the internet. The operating system can be Android or Apple, none of them has any advantage over the other in Affiliate marketing.

SOCIAL MEDA SAVVY

Social media

Social media savvy simply means having knowledge of social media. It is not enough to have a smartphone like my mom. You must know how to use social media apps.

My neighbour, Oga Emma who sells groceries came to me that he is interested in Affiliate marketing.

Oga Emma had somehow stumbled on a post I made on Facebook about Affiliate marketing, and he was interested. But Oga Emma can hardly post a picture on Facebook without the help of his son, Junior.

To earn from this Affiliate marketing, you need to know how to use social media apps or be willing to learn them.

There are various Affiliate marketing platforms out there. But the best I can recommend here in Nigeria is Expertnaire.

Mentorship

It took me five weeks to make my first sale but I have a student who made 8 sales within her first 2 weeks of starting out as an affiliate marketer.

Now, why was that possible? Mentorship!

You must get a mentor in any field. I have mentored quite a lot of people on content writing, copywriting, blogging and now Affiliate marketing.

What is mentorship about? It is simply me showing you the loopholes I fell into so you can easily avoid them too, and have a smoother ride.

FIND OUT WHY 80% OF NIGERIANS LOOK FORWARD TO FEBRUARY

February pic
Welcome to the month of February

‘Welcome to the month of February’ and ‘Happy new month’ may have been the message you’ve been seeing the most but you may never know why 80% of Nigerians look forward to the month of February!

I do know that happy new month is one of the rituals we do on the first of every month, but there is a different glee specially attached to that of February.

Join me and find out why:

Relief, finally! The longest month is over!

Finalllly! This long month of February is over

Januay is not the longest month, but due to the fact that a lot of Nigerians are usually doing plenty dorime during the yuletide season, January becomes choking.

So, for 80% of Nigerians, over time, hardship and scarcity have been likened to the month of January, so once it is done, they feel the year is back to normal.

They can now be more ‘open-handed’.

Tis the month of looooooooooooooovvvveee!

For the lovers (smiles), February is the month of loooooooveee. The month to be jolly. The month where they get to ‘measure’ the amount of love that their lovers have for them.

Most especially, the females. The females in my country are the ones who get to gain the most, cos they are usually on the receiving end.

As a child I used to get angry when a big brother called my crush “his wife”, I had no idea there were more than meets the eye.

DEADLY REASON WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE SAVINGS OVER AJO?

Ajo or Savings?
Ajo or Savings?

Ajo or savings might sound alike but then they are really different. This is one only a few people know about. But before I start to talk plenty, lemme explain the two.

This is a year of plenty plenty resolution for so many people. Some counted millions they will have by the end of the year.

Others counted what they want to buy. Most of them filled church baskets with the end of the year requests and wish lists.

Yes I called it wish list, cos having goals without plans is nothing but having huge lists for a waiting star, cos I am sure no god of any religion would grant wishes to someone who never worked!

ALSO READ: LADY KOI KOI: REALITY OR A MYTH?

In finances, many people use different methods to scale. In Nigeria, there are two kinds of people? – The business people and the working-class people.

Now the working class people normally use Ajo while the working class use Akawo (savings).

What is Ajo (Contribution)?

three people sitting beside table

Ajo is a financial circle that involves members of the circle receiving money from the other members in turn, till everyone have collected.

For instance, there are 10 persons in an office and 10 of them agree to start an Ajo. In January, they all contribute N20,000 to Mr A. He receives 180,000 to combine with his N20,000 and he has N200,000.

February, the same thing is done. Only this time, who receives is not Mr A, but rather Mr B; and the cycle goes on till the 10th month.

What is savings (Akawo)?

Savings, also called Akawo in some parts of Nigeria, is a style where people do save on either a weekly basis or on a monthly basis.

This style is usually used by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Sometimes used by the big guns, but that is not the reason for this post.

ALSO READ: A REVIEW OF PORT HARCOURT SINGLES PARTY

Why do people like Ajo?

Observe carefully and you see that people who like Ajo (Contribution) are those whose finances rely on a salary structure.

So many times, they find it hard to gather funds at a time, so they choose to do this circle thing. So that once in a year they can receive bulk money at a time instead of being split and spread across a period of time.

Why do people like Savings?

People who take this one are those who are scared of the month ending and then they won’t know the result of the business. So they task themself on a certain amount and save, no matter the condition.

WHAT REALLY IS SCALABLE INCOME?

Scalable income

Scalable income sounds like a sweet rhyming word, but I will break it down for you to get what I mean.

Many times people complain about their wives, boss, family, church members, colleagues, friends; look very well, it all boils down to money.

Money governs everything, or as some would say, answereth all things.

ALSO READ: NYSC DAY 3: SWEARING IN & ELECTIONS

Now, in Nigeria my country, many people are thrilled with getting a job, and once they get the job they feel relaxed and complacent.

Ten years later, you still see them on the job, being all grumpy about it, yet refusing to quit.

But then, when they compare themselves to their ‘mates’ who don’t have a ‘job’, it feels like they’ve been overtaken.

SCALABLE INCOME:

Scalable income simply means income that can grow. Now, when you get employed at a job, you are being paid for your skills and time.

But the difference is, while your pay is sure, it is fixed. Even in cases where promotion is attainable, you find out that before the promotion comes, it takes at least 7-10 years.

To get scalable income, you need a side job while at your main hustle.

Whenever, side hustle is mentioned, you may want to complain that you have no time. But in 20 years from now you will still have no time.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be a business. Start with a digital skill. Your earnings might not be enough at the beginning. That is why you should stay at your 9-5, to get money to pay bills
