From #SideHustle to #SecondSalary!

 

Anyone who’s known me for any length of time knows that I don’t believe in having just one source of income. If you’re new to the concept, I recommend this article I wrote about why you should have a side hustle.

Before my editorial services business became my main gig, it was my side hustle. When it became my primary source of income, I knew I needed another side hustle.

I had one for a while, and it was a truly fun and lucrative one, but amongst other drawbacks there was the “hustle” part of it that took up my Saturdays. I mean, every single Saturday.

I needed something less intrusive, something closer to my everyday life, a way to get paid for doing things I already did every day, things that came naturally to me.

After reading The Four Year Career (a life-changing book for me!) I knew for sure that what I wanted was out there, and that I would recognize it when I saw it.

And I have!

I recently joined an amazing company that pays me a #SecondSalary to do what I’ve been doing daily for free.

I’m excited and fired up!

What about you? Do you have a side hustle that’s easy, simple and fun? I’d love to hear about it, do send me an email: anafricandiva@gmail.com

 

PS

There’s a lot out there under the guise of business opportunities offering extra income. Here’s something I learnt from a great leader:

 

ABOUT YOUR OPPORTUNITY

  1. Is this a real business opportunity? Or just an excuse to move money amongst friends?

If the answer is NO, don’t WALK away… RUN away!

 

  1. Would I purchase the product or service if there were NO Business opportunity attached?

If the answer is NO, don’t WALK away… RUN away!

 

  1. Does the company offer a leadership development program?

If the answer is NO, don’t WALK away… RUN away!

What If You Could Say Goodbye to Period Pain Forever?

 

 

When my BFF had her first pain-free period, I wished I could ask this question of every woman I knew: what if you could say goodbye to period pain forever?

All she did was make a single lifestyle change — she chose a dietary supplement I had just started promoting. It doesn’t cure anything. It elevates your body to peak state of health, and then your body does what it was designed to do: cleanse, heal, and rebalance itself.

She was simply supporting my new side hustle, but after 20 years of excruciating period pain (we’ve been friends since we were 12 years old) she had her first pain-free period ever.

You see, I was excited to start my new hustle. You would be too if you met the people I met and heard their stories.

Like the story of Monica’s son who had to be hospitalized every month, sometimes twice a month, because of his sickle cell crises. His genotype is still the same but with this supplement, he hasn’t had a single crisis in over two years.

Like the story of Chris whose blood sugar was so high that ants were gathering around his urine in the toilet bowl. Two weeks after cutting down on carbs and taking this supplement daily, his blood sugar was down to normal and has stayed within healthy limits.

Like the story of Funmi who used to have only 2 periods in a year because of PCOS, and had been trying unsuccessfully for years to have a 2nd child after her daughter. Not only did her periods become regular with continued use of this supplement, she conceived and now has a baby boy!

Yes, I was excited about my new mission. If you know me you know I love this kind of thing, making a difference in people’s lives.

So I made a decision to offer this supplement to everyone who was open to trying it. And after just few weeks on it, my BFF’s period came with zero cramps! Whoa!

What I love the most about this particular brand is that you don’t have to take the supplement in capsule form if you don’t want to.

What my BFF got (and what has now become my Number 1 choice) is the supplement already infused into that antioxidant-rich beverage that’s even healthier than water; green tea.

Wait, green tea is healthier than water? That doesn’t make sense! There’s nothing better than water!

Actually, there is: you get all the benefits of water AND all the benefits of the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that exist in green tea!

Now imagine drinking this every day, PLUS the transformational benefits of this amazing supplement — the closest thing to nutritional perfection you can put in your mouth — infused into it. You can’t taste it, you can’t smell it, but it’s there and it’s working. Pure gold.

I’m your plug. Email anafricandiva@gmail.com or send me a Twitter DM @anafricandiva

Muster.ng: Nigeria’s First Flat Sharing Service

The opportunity to share a flat can be a lifesaver for young professionals who need accommodation and cannot afford the cost of rent on their own. Every other day, there’s a social media post about someone having a room in their apartment they would like to rent out, someone needing a flatmate to share the cost of a nice new place they just found, or someone willing to pay for a room in a flat. However, if you’ve ever tried any of these, you know how challenging it can be to find the right flatmates.
