I had the opportunity
To meet some people from the “city”
And got to mix football with business
So was invited back to theirs in Chelsea!
Tomatoes would grow
But not all in a row
Groundnuts did abound
They were also around
I even found yam
As you would on a farm
Green beans in pods
One purple, among the lot!
Strawberries so red
Were growing in the bed
Pears were ripe and sweet
To pick up with ease
I later climbed the black cherry tree
To D’s words of caution and grin
I found rosemary and spinach
Seeding in the low ditch.
My mum noticed that we would sit on the fence outside the house and buy anything the “street hawkers” were peddling so that when the day was up, or rarely, week was up we were broke. For some reason I started learning to save my money as I was not sure about our spending. I would then bail out or help others if they needed money.
What I like best was that my mum studied our spending patterns and realised (market research) we were spending on sweets and worked out the type of sweets we bought by asking – survey.
That’s how we began to run a sweet shop in the store of mummy’s kitchen.
Need I say more? If you ever doubted if God was real, get your head around this one.
This is to announce, with the greatest pleasure that I have been named a finalist in the above awards, Woman of the Year’ category. Thank you for all your comments, support and good wishes. For full listing see http://events.professionaladviser.com/womeninfinancialadvice/static/2018-finalists
How well will it go to say to a King you have come on a mission to release their workforce from ‘slavery and oppression’ of a cruel rule?Not nice or easy. As if that was not bad enough, Daddy says, “by the way, this King will give you a tough time and I will need to do some killing before he lets you release my People!”
An impossible task made in heaven and articulated to man on earth.
Let’s review this man’s qualifications again?
– Born to slave parents
– Fugitive / wanderer
– Murderer on the run about to be extradited.
– Current CV occupation: shepherd last 40 years, expert in sheep 🐑 conversation 💭 and rearing
– Nervous speaker
– Stuttered Speech.
– Maybe low self esteem
– And more…🙊
That was not all. I became part of the entourage to sit with this dignified individual. Cool stuff. But my M friend was waiting for me. So I had to phone to tell her I had upgraded Travel for which she complained that I would no longer be sitting with her. Oh dear. So I agreed with her that I would sit beside her. Only I had not realised how difficult it would be to keep that promise
Use your talent to get ahead, don’t hide it. ( it could end in punishment)
My Daddy says “a man’s gift will make way for him and being him before Great men.” His book also has a story / parable about three men and their talents.
How many times do we get approached about a business opportunity with slated prices, quotes and terms that we feel are good? But after agreeing to it, we hear of someone else’s deal and feel we should have negotiated for more?
A story in my life comes to mind. I had applied twice for a role, same documents and all before I was called to an interview. To get the best chance I had answered every question, written verifiable completed examples of the tasks listed in job description to show my eligibility for the role. At the interview I was pretty confident about getting the position until one question ‘threw’ me! Undaunted but a little lacking in that confidence I had at the start, I offered an answer…
Where is God in all this?” “Has God given up on this yet?” How can you give it up!? Who will take it from here?
So I tried another exciting idea. I would go to a service till to get cash out instead of an online transaction.
The error message in red was so embarrassing that I felt not only for myself but nearby potential onlookers… it asked me to contact card issuer. Normally, surely that usually meant there were insufficient funds? Not so thus time, I assure you because the online screen proved otherwise.
