Don't Be Afraid To Speak Up

Hello my dear readers and followers, I would like to share my story of how I came to be taking part in this event where I will be a guest speaker as a Domestic Violence Survivor and Advocate.

The host of this event Richard Oluyinka happened to be live streaming on Facebook on the subject of men who are abusive towards their wives. He was so authentic and passionate about the issue and his energy was so touching and heartfelt. 

I wasn't actually a follower of Richard on Facebook - however, another friend of mine was already friends with Richard and she knew my domestic violence story. She shared Richards' video with via Facebook.

Anyway, I watched the replay of Richards' video and I took that leap of faith and made several comments as I was just so loving his take on the matter.


A few days later, Richard contacted me and he asked me if I would like to be a speaker at the event in the above flyer.

The rest as they say is history.

I want to encourage anyone who has been, or knows of someone going through this terrible ordeal to not be afraid to speak up about this terrible issue which is destroying many lives.

If I had kept quiet, I wouldn't be having the chance to tell my story to the world to help save at least 1 life out there.

If you cannot join us in person at the event, please do join us live on Facebook on the date and time.

Thank you for your support.

Money Literacy Educator
As a woman helping and teaching women who have experienced domestic abuse the simple ways to create wealth for them, this topic such an interesting one.
It's very easy for me as a single mum to use the excuse that as a woman, I need to invest differently to man. Why?
Start Early - if you can
From a young age, investment was discussed in my home by my late father. My dad was the only man in our household - as he had 2 daughters.  I invest so that I can create a financially safe future for my children and I. I also invest for the future education of my children as I DO NOT want them to have to borrow money for their education. I also invest as the job market is very risky right now - with there being no job for life. Ultimately, I would like to live off of my investments when the time comes to retire from the hustle and bustle.
Financial Adviser or Not
I've never actually had a long term financial adviser, therefore, the issue of not been able to fully communic…
