Women: made for more than the ‘other’ room (2019)

Still in the celebratory atmosphere of our 4th anniversary, meet our MOST SIGNIFICANT POST … and it’s not because I am a lady. 🙂

First published: April 4th, 2017.

I came across this book when I was on maternity leave with my first child, wondering if the workplace would still need me when I get back or if it was worth it to leave my bundle of joy for the hustle of work. It’s been 4 years since then and I am still growing strong in the workplace which may not have happened if I hadn’t read this book. It is for women who want to make impact and men who want to support that vision – Tosan A.

Dream chaser!

We all have dreams big and small even intermediate which we hope will all turn out to be the next big thing or bring us 30 billion in the account. So how do we know we are on track? Everyone has said we should dream big, others have said íf we can think it, we can do it (I can still hear it in Mo Abudu’s voice) so how are we sure we can truly do it or are ready to bring our dreams to life.

My first attempt at reading this book was over two (2) years ago. I was still in the intro section when I dropped the book sad & very discouraged. Some questions were asked to get the reader’s understanding about where they were in readiness to achieve their dreams (called the Dream Test) and as I scrolled down I could already tell that my dreams were nowhere near being achieved.
