When Arese Ugwu, author of the international bestseller, The Smart Money Woman announced on her Instagram that the sequel to her book was available for pre-order, I was fuelled with excitement.
“I don’t want to be poor,” I whined.
“Then stop acting like you want to be,” Mrs Ibe, my mentor replied, taking a sip out of her teacup.
How was I acting like I wanted to poor when I made the opposite clear to her or so I thought?
Seeing my confusion, she smiled and took a more patient approach, of that of a teacher willing to take their student by the hand and teach them the ropes.
