CUTS and FABRICS: Part 19

Mary has always nursed the idea of becoming a model, that's why she took up a job in a fashion house because she believes its a step closer to her dream.
Working for Miss Titi or "Aunty" as she fondly calls her has been good. Titi doesn't delay with salaries, she gives opportunities to her employees to grow and she's always full of smiles, but Mary feels its not enough. As the head sales rep she feels she deserves more benefits than the other workers; and Titi is not even ready to help her in her modelling career. All she had done so far was to introduce her to her friend, Oreva but Oreva had not tried to help her get a modelling job, not once." Could it be that Aunty told Oreva not to help me so she can keep me working for her as a mere sales rep?" She asked herself. Its been close to a year now and she had not said anything about helping her, introducing her to Oreva had fanned the flames. Oreva who is supposed to be a top model has kept mute on the…

Africa's Most Successful Woman And Media Mogul, Mo Abudu speaks To Women On Being An Entrepreneur

"For women, never ever see your gender as a handicap. Never think yourself inferior. Be ready to do twice the work for half the usual reward. When the door isn’t opened, kick down the door". 

"Take the regular harassment and other obstacles women face in stride. In fact, be prepared for them. Be prepared to be told off, to be told you are not good enough, to go unrewarded for even doing the same work your male counterpart has done".

"Work with your passion, let it consume and drive you. Do not be distracted. On down days, it will keep you going. Also, surround yourself with like minds. In fact, you should exhaustively curate those who will go along with you on your journey. I can’t say that enough".
