    I think i have certainly learnt a lot by coming to this blog. Lots of top level advice and news too. Please there was this article/advice Uche Pedro dropped at the start of a new year. It was mostly on career and combining your full time job with your part time hustle and other similar life hacks. It was really nice. I had it bookmarked but i have changed my system now so i dont have it anymore. Cant remember if its for 2015/2016 January. Please can someone CC me on it.
    PS – I think Nigerian women are amazing and exceptional. You are the best in the whole world.
