Honestly, Would You Rather Be Self-Made?

The Phase 2 of our women empowerment programme 'I'd Rather Be Self Made' took place last Saturday March 12th in Surulere and the turn out was massive. There were way more girls than I expected to see. This tells me that there are many ladies out there with ambition, vision, talent and determination to succeed that need the push and help to get to where they need to get to. Will do the best that I can to help and also get the rich folks involved in this project. We have to come together to help Nigeria's needs for independent women.

We are also working on setting up a Self Made club where these girls can interact on a regular basis, to learn from each other, inspire and uplift each other. And then, have volunteers who have succeeded in different business endeavour come in once a month to train these girls and show them the ropes. Will keep you guys updated.

Meanwhile disregard the title #clickbait. I really love this cause, especially forming a group for the girls to keep in touch, network, share ideas, share trade secrets and generally inspire each other. Oh, I also like the part of successful past "beneficiaries" coming in to train the newbies. I really think this is a great initiative. 

I'm hoping other privileged people can partner with Linda and do more for these girls, the (financial) burden shouldn't be on her alone, no matter how much money she's making. 


  1. Kon bring in ur comment...good job Linda.TNHW

    1. My Linda baby!!! She is doing good. Dont forget to call me Linda baby.

  2. I love seeing women empowering other women. Very few people really want yo help. Love or hate het Linda is doing a great job.

  3. Stop licking linda's ass. I like u alot thelma. Please stop it.

    1. And whose ass would you rather prefer she licks?

      Ooh,and please get busy,lick a plate or something.

    2. #FreedomToLickAss

    3. Lol!!! Dude, U crazy :-)

  4. Theres nothing wrong in thelma "licking lindas ass" linda is far up in the blogging game thelma is also into. Nothing wrong in licking her ass.

    1. Well I don't see this as licking ass, she was just sharing information so that anyone that's interested can get involved in any capacity.

      By the way... I don't support ass licking of any kind be it to arouse someone physically or mentally... You can earn that which you deserve without licking anyone's ass.

  5. Nice up on Linda's part. If all privileged folks do this sort of thing, the world would be an easier and a more beautiful place to live in.


  6. Appreciating another person's success is not the same thing as licking ass! weda you like it or not Linda's money and yours @anonymous no be mate and in your own little corner who you help?!and can we just stop using d language licking ass!...eerrrm ...tanku for #JoyDaNuGirl

  7. why going anonymous to respond to the anonymous post. I am a die hard feminist. I love seeing or hearing women succeed. God bless you Linda for putting smiles on the faces of these young women. The joy of being mentored by a successful lady is mind blowing.

  8. Linda's sister always trying to form hating though

  9. If Thelma doesn't praise linda they'll say she's a hater. If she praises her they'll say she's a kiss ass. You just can't pls people.

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....!
