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!!!”
