I graduated from the University of Port Harcourt with a Second Class Upper Degree earlier this year.
I was super hyped and excited about freedom from school activities, structured schedules,exams etc. I was ready to take on life and go chase my dreams. This includes the blog and a ready to wear T-shirt brand I started last year(watch out for my post about some things entrepreneurship taught me).
I thought I was going to start making money immediately enough to build my empire 😂 I bet life was somewhere shaking it’s head and laughing at me.
I’ve always loved & admired financial independence, hard work, adventure & literally just making money from doing what I love. So,I channeled my energy into the blog & my business just like I did while I was in school. They didn’t yield profit like I thought they would and I got discouraged.
I discovered that not only do I need to chase my dreams, I also need to be sensitive enough to see what could bring money to me in the long run.

I’ve been blogging for a year (May 2019 made it 1 year) and I’ve earned a reasonable amount of money. Writing, smartphone/product photography, social media management & caption creation are some ways I’ve earned money and I could only have gotten these opportunities through blogging. Blogging has taught me a lot!
It took reminding myself that the reason I started this blog was not because of money but because I just wanted to share things I know could help young women like me grow. I just wanted to share ways we could be better.
However,leaving school opened my eyes to reality. I need to channel my creativity & burning desire to help others into a money making venture. I’ve been praying,thinking, planning. I’ve made some wrong investments too & this period is the time where I’ve really decided to put my head down & think about what I really want to do with the rest of my life.
Hey,I’m not closing the blog but I just thought to share what I’ve been up to with you all.
I’m so happy to be back writing new posts & I’m super grateful to God for how far I’ve come.
I will get a job soon,I may try my hands on another business,do some physical trainings/classes but the blog is still gonna be up & running.
I hope y’all are doing great?
Thanks for reading! You are loved! ❤
