I have been blogging seriously since APRIL 2012, and a number of people have asked me, HOW DO YOU DO IT?… okay maybe just one…but my point remains.

Being a female entrepreneur has enough challenges as being a corporate working female.

It is the snide remarks on women having to be domesticated, despite that when people decide to be housewives they also face challenges.

But there is hope Continue reading “#Career: Being a young African female startup owner”
