The Fabulosity of February
The month of February is all kinds of fabulous because in this month we set aside time to especially acknowledge and celebrate the rawest and deepest emotion known to mankind which is L.O.V.E
This month, against the back drop of love, I have decided to focus my blog content on 3 KEY areas we can all gain greater depth, insight and wisdom in that will improve our personal lives and our relationships with each other. I have specially written and in some cases curated amazing resources from leading experts in the areas of:
With a new government in Washington and their unique ways of doing things and as the UK gets ready to "Brexit" from the European Union, regardless of which part of the world you live in, these changes will affect you one way or the other so this season calls for being intentional about acquiring wisdom in the area of finances in the light of these impending changes. My blog content will provide lots of information in this regard.
It’s been said that one of the leading causes of marital breakdown is in the area of finance i.e. the lack of it or financial incompatibility among couples with regards to how finances are handled in the marital relationship. As you know I am an educator by profession. I teach Economics & Mathematics in a secondary school but sadly our ages 11-16 educational system as it currently stands doesn’t equip our students with skills in personal finance. It’s somehow taken for granted that they will all automatically grow into fiscally responsible adults with a prowess for handling money but sadly this is few and far between. With rising household debt levels, something needs to happen and fast. Without intentionality to acquire wisdom in the area of finances, fiscal prudence will not automatically happen. Principles of personal finance can be taught and acquired and the sooner it happens in a person’s life, the better.
I am SUPER excited to share with you this month my very FIRST interview of the New Year and guess what!!! It’s all about…you guessed it…PERSONAL FINANCE!!!
February is the month of L.O.V.E but it’s also the month to set the right tone for the trajectory of your personal finance in 2017. I had the privilege of being granted an exclusive interview with the Managing Director of one of the UK's leading financial planning services. I am SUPER excited about this interview because I have been reading his financial articles since I was 18 years old. Everything I have ever learnt about money to date, I learnt from reading his articles. I never imagined in a million years that he would agree to a request to be interviewed but God!!! God willing that interview will be up on my YouTube channel on the last Sunday of this month, the 26 th of February 2017 to be precise. I have timed it to coincide with payday you see…lol!!!
Family is the bedrock of society and the training ground for bringing up children who are emotionally, physically and spiritually sound. The quality of a child’s upbringing within a family also helps to shape the moral fabric of society. Again it’s taken for granted that the tools and wisdom needed for building a strong family will happen automatically without intentionality on our parts. This is an area of personal interest because as an educator working with young people, I see first-hand and daily why it is crucial to acquire knowledge in this area. You don’t have to wait until you are a parent to gain wisdom on how to bring up children who will have a positive influence and be blessing to their spheres of influence. So this month I will share resources from leading experts in this field whose literature has been a great blessing to me in enriching my knowledge in this field over the years.
3) Faith- I find that as we sojourn through life, it is so important to have faith in oneself and in your ability to achieve you’re the desires of your heart if you’re prepared to put in the required effort and hard work.
James 2:17-‘’… faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead…’
It takes work to make faith work. As a person of faith, I draw tremendous strength from my faith walk with God to navigate the quagmires of life. My website has always had a faith feature and there are a plethora of resources on there that will bless & encourage you in your faith walk so be sure to check it out too. Here is the link:
& of course….there will be a fashion feature embedded in there somewhere as spring will soon be upon us.
So Happy New Month from my heart to yours. I am SUPER excited about the amazing content I have in store for you this month & I look forward to also learning and re-discovering new insights about:
Finances. Family/Relationships….and Faith.
So do stay tuned and check in right here every day to see the new content unfold.
Lots of love & best wishes for a Fabulous February!!!
