Wow! I did say Blogging will get into the box of “real jobs” in Nigeria but Linda Ikeji is gonna fast track that. She just picked a new ride. Look at the pictures below and Linda’s own words as posted on her blog.

“Wharrahell…decided to spoil myself..Haha! Bought myself the 2011 Infiniti FX 35 – the premium package. Got it on Friday for 8 million naira. Call me Linda ‘Chopping Life’ Ikeji. Lol

My sisters wanted me to get a Range but I’ve always loved this SUV and now I own one! Amazing stuff!!!

I put this up for two reasons:
1. To show off of course…why else? Lol
And 2, to encourage other ladies out there to keep working hard and keep believing in themselves. You don’t need any aristo to give you angthing…any woman with will and drive can can give herself anything she wants!

By this time two years ago, I didn’t have much…but I never stopped believing in myself and I never stopped working hard. I can’t even begin to count how many businesses I put my hands into before one paid off – Blogging! I told myself that I will make it in this life one day as my own woman and on my own terms, that no man will ever take away my dignity…and I did it. So can you! Yes, you! You have the power!

This is probably a good time to say this… I’m starting a youth empowerment programme called I’d rather be SELF MADE, but I will tell y’all more about it later.

Lastly, if you’ve ever opened this blog to read its content, thank you! You can’t begin to imagine how much you’ve changed my life! Kisses!!!”

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your blog. It appears as though some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos
    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
