Redefining Finance - BellaNaija - August - 2015039

I am always pleasantly surprised by how much women learn when they come together. Wana Udobang and I put together the Redefining Finance Event in April this year. As we planned the event, we weren’t sure what to expect. All we knew was there was a dearth of personal financial planning amongst our peers and we wanted to create a platform that plugged that gap,” says Glory Edozien.

Over 100 guests were present at the Redefining Finance event on Sunday 26th April 2015 to discuss financial independence. With guest speaker, Arese Ugwu (founder of Smart Money Africa) and a panel comprising of make-up artist – Elaine Shomya, brand strategist – Aurora Moneyi and CEO of Uzo’s Food LabsUzo Orimalade, guests were educated about practical steps towards securing a financial future.

Arese explained some of the negative money mind sets that prevents wise financial decisions and also shared practical tips.

The panel discussion, facilitated by Wana Udobang brought clarity to some of the tips offered by Arese. Each panel member shared their own tried and tested methods for savings, investing, starting a business and taking steps towards securing their financial future.

    I am becoming more proud of women! Women, we shall get there someday.

    How does one get the opportunity to attend an event like this? I especially liked the fact that my future financial adviser Arese Ugwu was there

    I love to be a part of events like this but one hardly ever get to know when they are taking place. Is there a way one can know?. Or is there a site one can visit in order to be aware of events happening around?

    Curious question. Why is no one reporting Linda Ikeji’s scheme to empower young women by supporting their businesses financially. I mean, i know she’s a fellow blogger but I find it quite interesting no other platform is carrying it and i think the fact that shes decided to invest in young women is applaudable. Just curious as to why no other blog is carrying it. Or maybe its not news….or i need to read more blogs…

      Thank you. And SDK also empowers men and women with her platforms by allowing for advertising and giveaways

      Whatever issues one my have with Linda Ikeji and her caliber of blogging, you’ve got to applaud her efforts.

      That lady has been straight up generous with her monthly giveaways and now her “Self Made” project too. She has/will spend over N10 million on these ladies. That is impressiveness! I hail her.

      Is it that blogger that was cadging for kleenex (after doing the No.1) in not too distant past – as reported by her friends – but can now afford to get her mitts on them herself?

    Looking good, looking good, I can feel the conviviality. I love that. For the first time in my life, I think I may have a girl crush – Arese. Smart, go-getter, prerry and not the stereotypical image people have of bini girls (don’t get mad, I’m one too). Also, is that Dr. N and BK in them pics?
