The Nigerian internet community went agog recently after I took to social media to celebrate my wife and share a little bit of our story. The post which was intended to inspire and encourage someone elicited so many reactions characterized by mix feelings.
Some of the questions posed were, “at what point did I make that switch from poverty to wealth?”, “How did I manage to create so much wealth in a space of 13 years?”
I take no pleasure in celebrating unexplainable wealth, I also understand that you cannot get the secrets and details of a man’s financial and economic success from an Instagram post.
However, in response to the above questions, I have one simple answer- I changed my MINDSET. Once my mindset changed, everything on the outside changed along with it. Get your head right, and the rest will work itself out; with your hard work off course. It sounds so simple right? It sounds more or less like a cliché’.
Anyways, to get the full detail of what I did and also an opportunity to ask me questions, join me on the 19th of January, 2018 at The Civic Centre, Victoria Island for a course-correcting meeting; Thinkation2018 (Thinking + Education).The Ubong King Foundation is putting together one of Nigeria’s foremost thinking and education centered conference.
