Can You Get Rich Working For Someone Else?

Some people say you can never get rich working a 9-5, some say you can never get rich working for someone else... What do you say?

P-DIddy posted this on Instagram yesterday but deleted it almost immediately after getting a lot of backlash. But why the backlash, what's so wrong with this image?


  1. People that say U can't get rich working for someone are joking right?
    Don't they know Shell? Agip? Chevron? No be people get those companies?
    I no understand!
    I know someone who's the MD of a brewery & he is bloody rich...

    U can't get rich if U don't have a good head on ur neck whether Working for someone, Government, corporations, etc
    Na Investment be Key!

    1. Well said! Even if you had your own business,only a good head gets the dough.


    2. Dear Ruthie, I had the same thoughts in my head oh!

  2. Ruthy don talk everythg finish na. If it was Diddy dt posted that, then he's jes trying na be gangster and claim that he is hood rich., but that's a wrong move tho. U can be dead rich working 4 some1. Even richer than Diddy sef.

  3. I agree wit Ruthy..... . Diddy is just living the celebrity life #publicity

  4. I dont know why people have this notion though.., most of them are just lazy to work! I mean, being your own boss is good, but u cant just relax and fold ur arms doing nothing.,,, while waiting for that.... If you cant get rich at leset dont be poor. Lol

  5. Meanwhile, thelma persmision to put out my blog on here lol.

    1. rather! :) Thanks guys! I really appreciate if you do

  6. Well said Ruth ,she has said it all

  7. What's up with all these pop-ads when I click on anything in your blog?

    That's why I ran from Myne Whitman's blog o.

  8. True, your statement is valid.

    No one ever gets rich working for someone else save and that is the blunt truth. 'You have to make your money work for you to be rich'.

    A job sometimes defined as 'just over broke' pays you enough to come back the next day to work some more.

    But wait, what exactly is being rich? With the grim statistics WHO puts out there, then one can say if you can afford three square meals daily, a roof over your head and some clothes for about 80 years then you can be called rich. A description that a good number of employees might fall into.

    However, if you define rich the way I see it - being able to pay the wages/salaries of a lawyer, medical doctor and economist/accountant, then you'd agree, that no job really gives you that luxury which is yet a necessity for the truly rich.

    In essence, to make your money work for you and perhaps other people's money (debt financing, bonds et al) is the cornerstone of being called truly rich. This might be as a financial partner yet an employee of a law firm, an entrepreneur, an investor et al

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
