Disciplined savings make a great woman

By Alma Namene Amunyela |

Ladies, let us fight for ourselves to achieve financial freedom.

You’re 18 – 30 years old and you have no savings, no investments, no education, and no plans for a poverty-free future.

Just alcohol, weekend life, relationship goals and just being the hot girl of the town.

You will wake up one day, and you will be 40 and realise all you did was to impress the streets and friends. Wake up black child, fight for yourself, for your future and for your family.

Even if you have the education and a good job, one day you will wake up and realise that you’re nearing retirement. Saving up and investing your income today will make a big difference to your comfort in old age.

There is a big difference between enjoying your youth and destroying your future. Be wise.

Impressing people will never help you; don’t get something that you can’t afford. I think you understand what I’m trying to say.

Don’t rush for night clubs even when you’re not affording that life just because of your friends, or people who are around you are doing it and you’re also doing, no, don’t do that.

Don’t do that because you don’t earn the same figure.

And even if you’re getting the same amount, rather choose to be disciplined with your income.

So let us save for our future dearest ladies because tomorrow you might get old and you will have empty hands while you were having opportunities to save up some cash.

When you get money let me say from your business or your salary, so at least save up even a 200; that 200 will grow if you keep on just putting away 200 per month.

And remember, it doesn’t matter how much you earn, but a great woman is one who is financially free during her adult life and looks forward to a comfortable old age as a result of her disciplined savings.
