I haven’t posted in a while…. I apologise… I switched network providers and it’s looking like I I made the worst mistake ever. 😐
It’s my third post on this series………. wowza!!!!! . It keeps getting interesting. Super thanks to everyone who has read, shared, commented on my blog, and to those who encouraged me to continue writing especially on this series, * in my anambra accent*Chineke Nna Gozie Unu* means God bless you.
Last weekend I attended the entrepreneurs hangout at the foreshore harbours, Osborne phase 2, Ikoyi, Lagos.
This hangout is co-hosted by Chechi Arinze and Lotanna Ezeogu
Let me just brief you about the entrepreneurs hangout Nigeria. The entrepreneurs hangout is a community of young entrepreneurs supporting and helping each other grow. “culled from their instagram profile”. They mostly have the hangouts, first Sunday of the month.
The first time I attended was in April 2017, and the topic was “building business structures and system”. It was really educative, interactive and eye opening, I told myself I would RSVP for all the upcoming hangouts. I couldn’t attend after that one, till the last one held last week. *long story *
The topic for discussion this month was, “Buiding your investment portfolio with as little as 10,000 naira”. There were about 3 speakers, Tomie Balogun, Okwuchi Nyarko, and Michael Udoh.
I came very very late, but I would be sharing little on what I learnt
Personal habit to adopt:–
- Tracking your finances.
- Buying what you need not what you want.
- Discipline in spending and stay consistent
- Being true to yourself.
Other lessons are:-
- Don’t keep your money in a savings account
- Don’t invest in what you don’t understand..
- Projected budget helps to tracking your income/ expenses
- Spread your risk.. Different company. Different investment.
- Your kind of investment is still dependent on your goals.. (Short term or long terms)
- The best and safest place to invest your little money??..Money Market …. You can begin with mutual funds.
I couldn’t take pictures, but I made sure I took a picture by the water side. After all I was at a harbour 😁😁.
The food at the Foreshore Harbours wasn’t bad at all, it’s also affordable.
My friend ordered fried Yam and chicken bites, and we both shared a plate. It was about 1,900naira.
