Valentines day this week? I know most of you ladies have been on your best behaviour for the past two months from the "pick me" twitter candidates to those making Kwame's jollof every Thursday, in the hope he will take you out for Valentines Day. I am sincerely interested in exploring how the commercialisation of Valentine's Day, has had an effect on how we view 'love' and in some cases chase candidates we know cannot led us anywhere in life, all for the validation of having a 'valentine'. I understand that some will always choose love over money, but for a lot of people that isn't the case and it's worth exploring it. Somebody who loves you will show you exactly that, perhaps with a fair balance of affection and gifts, without you having to chase them so if you find yourself doing so...stop.
"Confirm your Price"
If you value yourself, so will they it's simple. Rather than entering the 'audition' process and acting as Kwame's house help after Christmas, please focus on gaining the financial stability that you want to attract. Have a clear idea of who you are, and want you want ; to fix the disparity.
Let us have a conversation ...tell me a story of when you felt like the man you were dating "couldn't afford you."
Until next time,
