Wealth and Finance

Investments are a key driver of finance. It is how businesses grow, and how financially active individuals multiply their cash base; but, it is not for everyone. Here we'll discuss the key principles and techniques of corporate finance and how it affects an individual's money affairs, especially the methods of making prudent financial decisions, budgeting, saving, investing, insurance, retirement planning, etc.

Lets Talk Side Hustle

Side Hustle? Tosin works for an oil company, Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm. She typically has numerous tasks and activities to deliver to daily. Ifeoma her boss, has observed that Tosin usually seems distracted, this is even more obvious because she never meets deadlines. Her mobile phone constantly rings and she steps away from her desk to receive calls. She even sometimes dissapears during working hours. Yesterday, as Ifeoma was approaching Tosin's desk, she hurriedly attempts to shove some documents away but it was too late as Ifeoma had reached her desk and seen a couple of marketing flyers for a shoe business. Tosin looked shifty and uncomfortable. On further enquiry, she discovers Tosin has a side hustle and calls her in to have a discussion. What is your opinion about running a side husltle during working hours?

Personal and Business Finance

What are some of the things you struggled with in 2018 in your personal and business finances that you would like to improve or change in 2019. I'm a finance professional and I find that with all my knowledge and experience I'm still not practising a lot of the things that I know I should be doing in terms of budgeting and investing. I would love to do more saving and investing in 2019

I am a stay home wife at the moment. and I've only being married for 6months. So now I just feel terrible staying home doing nothing. I am gradually falling into depression. I don't know if I should say I am not business inclined but the truth is I have no idea of business. I am a graduate but even jobs are hard to come by this days and I never learnt any handiwork. I want to get busy but I don't know how or what to start doing. I really admire women that have successful businesses and also have time for their family. I wouldn't want something that will get me too busy and then make me not have time for my family. I need ideas of how to get busy with anything at all and/or the direction to think towards. I would prefer something like a business or handiwork.

Can someone suggest other investment options better than Stock?

I keep thinking there should be other viable investment options better stock trading. First reason why I'm not so gassed about it is that the risks involved are too much. Another is I really don't understand it. Anyone care to shed some light?
