The Smart Money Woman

Hey guys! How was your weekend? I bought The Smart Money Woman the first week it was released, but didn’t get to read it until this past Friday. I’ve followed Arese Ugwu on Instagram and her blog for the longest time. She’s such an inspiring young lady and this book proves that she is truly…

Nice Girl or Nah?

Hey y’all! I hope everyone had a great weekend, especially my American friends who actually had a 3-day weekend, thanks to Labor Day.

5 Books for the New Grad

Hey guys! I’d first of all like to congratulate everyone who is celebrating their graduation at any level: certificate, bachelors, masters, doctorate, whatever! You all encourage us to aspire to excellence and motivate us to follow our dreams. Some of you had to work full time and go to school full time all at once….
