Men Are Weak: Quote of the Week

Before you crucify, I didn't write this as you can see. I found it online. 
I actually have seen women battered by unfeeling men yet bounced back, but men usually hardly recover from hurt, so I accent to this. An example of a strong woman is my friend and coach, Lara Kudayisi-Emeralds, the Matchmaking mistress who had 14 abortions and 15 heartbreaks but still was able to accept love.
I will tell you about her in some other post. On this quote, do you agree? Share your opinion.

Conversation on Naira Land On Why Men Do Not Deserve Most Women; So They Rather Choose To Remain Single

 I was strolling around on the internet when I stumbled on this post on a discussion titled  EXPOSED: Reason For Increasing No Of Single Ladies In Nigeria & The Solution by joshrar  and a particular thought line from a certain Nigerian caught my attention. This is what he had to say word for need proofreading it sef so as to guard against distortion. Lol For the original post , click on the original title mentioned above.

"Since I've started reading Nairaland, from what I have been reading here about how Nigerian men percieve Nigerian women, the only question running through my mind is " WHy would a NIgerian woman want to marry such men?"
Seriously being a man is not about having a joystick. it takes more. Most men here talk more like animals who did not suck the breasts of their mother. like people who do not have mothers, sisters, or who would not have daughters in future.
I keep asking myself. Where do these people come from? Who trained men like…

Churches and Seed Sowing: The Common Sense Perspective - Idy James

When I was sent this article, I accepted to publish because first its balanced and true. Again, I remember a picture (that went viral on social media last week) of a young girl who was said to have used her schools fees to 'sow seed' in Church and how people bashed churches, Christians and so called pastors. Idy James presents a common sense and of course biblical perspective to the madness of seed-sowing preached rascally in majorly pentecostal churches.Enjoy reading and drop a comment. When Your Pastor tells you to Sow Seeds and get blessed, have you pondered where the seed should come from? It should come from your earned resources. But of what use is the Sowing if there are no means to get it?

How To Transit From Paid Employment to Starting a Succesful Business with Charles Efe

I spent about a decade working in banks and left as a unit head in the International banking division for early retirement and transition to spend time with my own business, i must say that I had a peaceful transition. Months after I left I have never regretted or felt like going back one second. Do you know why? The reason was because i planned the exit from the first day I entered and executed as planned. I had a game plan and it worked if not completely but was adequate.

IncubatorsPro for Smart Entrepreneurs In Abuja

I have said this before and I want to still say it again.
The reason why ENTREPRENEURSHIP will continue to elude our educational system and those running it is because we continue to teach Entrepreneurship as a Course.
Look, Entrepreneurship is NOT a Course.
It is a Philosophy.
Teach it as a Philosophy and the natural consequence for that is the birth of a great Movement. 
Can't you see that's simply what we are doing in #TheIncubators Africa?
We are raising a Great Movement!
And from the report coming to us in Lagos, Nigeria from the Abuja State Founder and her Team just few minutes ago, Abuja is fully set to take their next business learning ecosystem (BLE) happening this Sunday, 25th Sept. to a whole new level and deepen the Movement.
To all entrepreneurs who have applied to be part of #TheIncubatorsABUJA, we can't wait to have you all around.
Welcome in advance!!!
Access into #TheIncubatorsPRO is strictly by invitation!

Low Self Esteem in Nigerian Men Caused By Women; Can Be Solved By ALL

Written by Seyi Otitoju (a blog reader)
ABOUT MEN.....My take on the issue. 
In reaction to this post from Monday, Seyi wrote in from Abuja...enjoy:

Wow! Jenny,I commend you for being forthright about an issue I'd like to call a problem society has created and is now experiencing a throw back effect. But first, I'd like to celebrate Linda Ikeji and all the successful single women in their chosen careers who are positively impacting society. The issue you have brought to fore seems to me to have begun when society sought development over values. I think that as society developed it became glaring unwittingly that it takes more than brains and brawn to be accepted as a man. The material factor had to be in place too. 

Is Men Empowerment A Taboo in Nigeria?

Female speaker:  Men didn't get a fair chance at being groomed, loved, taught about life and family life. Then they are suddenly  expected to perform miracles in adulthood! No way! 
Even the bible rightly said a woman' is 'the helper' but we leave both the help and leadership to men after not grooming them from the home front?
Men must lead and provide and protect a powerful gender - the woman, who carries with her all that he needs to multiply. But when he doesn't even have the basic leadership training to be a human being first before being male, what happens?
Male Speaker:
True! You babes are actually helpers according to the Bible, but Nigerian culture puts all the help on men. I have never seen a woman interested in empowering men or considering they are even humans. Na so so women empowerment, we nko?

What do you think about this conversation? Is it feminist? 

Someone asked me if I am feminist and I was at a loss because, I have never understood the concept. I am of…

Does Bobrisky, Joshua Agai as examples of Nigerian Men Bother you?

What is your take about cross dressing like in the case of the 'Nigerian Barbie doll', Bobrisky (In photos), Joshua Agai the model and the veterans Denrele and Papa Charley boy? 
Does this trend portend anything for men in Nigeria? What comes to your mind? We know it's part of the signs of the end time and that we also have girls who are tomboys, but what else do you think motivates men to 'wanna be girls'?

McKinsey Research Shows Big Opportunities Ahead in Africa

Although Africa's growth has slowed, the long term fundamentals are strong, big business opportunities lie ahead and the overall outlook is positive.  These facts are contained in the latest McKinsey Global Institute Report just released today titled, Lions On The Move II: Realizing The Potentials of Africa's Economy.  

According to the MGI'S new report, four fundamentals are likely to underpin Africa's economic growth.  Firstly, Africa has the fastest urbanization rate in the world. Over the next ten years, 187 million more Africans will live in cities—equivalent to half the US population today. Secondly, it has the biggest working-age population in the world of 1.1 billion in 2034—larger than in either China or India. Thirdly, it has the largest reserves in the world of many key natural resources (e.g., 60 percent of the world's unutilized but potentially available cropland, and the largest global reserves of vanadium, manganese, and many others). Additionally, Af…

Christians Should Be Helping Hands

Dear Christian,
Today is Tuesday. People need a helping hand, a healing word, an integrity that comes from that grace from knowing Jesus...It is not alright to join the world to behave like the world. In darkness, we should be the light. 
Work dressing, talking, behaviour shouldn't be contradictory to Sunday/church dressing, talking and behaviour.
Let's what we hear on Sunday be what we do from Monday to Saturday!
Bless you!✌

Men Talk: Why Linda Ikeji and Other Successful Women Are Still Single; Your Fears

Hello boss,
Do you know that today is Linda's Ikeji's birthday. I've been celebrating her for days now even though I have never met her. I want to take a minute to celebrate a woman of humility, beauty, intelligence and hardwork and for putting Nigeria on the map because of blogging, and like me, she also turned 36 today.

When I wished her happy birthday on Instagram early this morning, I advised her to check out other interested non-Nigerian men for marriage and I truly mean it.
