I love hearing stories of sistas doing it for themselves.
In a male-dominated world, to see a women climb the corporate ladder on her own merit, makes me feel extremely proud.
Recently a woman named Sandra Iheuwa shared her inspiring story of how she became the owner of five companies. Iheuwa owns a hair company, a jewelry company, a restaurant, a clothing store and a non-profit charity organisation.
According to the Nigerian single mom, she started her business with just fifty dollars in 2012. She claims for five years she had several sleepless nights trying to balance everything.
She says she is now able to afford whatever she wants. She shared photos online of a car she bought in 2008 and compared it with her new Mercedes Benz 2017 model.
She wrote on Facebook: “2008 OLD BAE VS 2017 NEW BAE……I know cars are not investments but this is a story worth sharing….I started my business in January 2012 with only $50, blood, sweat and tears and being a single mom didn’t make it easy at all.”
“I didn’t get no help from no man whatsoever I mean no boyfriend, husband or sugar daddy this was all ME. After 5 years of hard work and my businesses grew to the point I was able to afford most things so I decided to reward myself.”
She went on to say, “I am a PROUD owner of a 2017 Mercedes Benz it was about time after buying my 2008 CX7 back in October 2008.”
“I drove it for 9 years and people around me were like a whole CEO still driving this kind of car well it was worth it because I don’t go about spending money unnecessarily.’
“To all the hardworking women out there especially single moms doing it all by yourselves your breakthrough is near just keep working hard and never give up.
“I would have never imagined my business I started with only $50 would get this BIG!!!! GOD IS GOOD!!!…..In btw who wants the old car?”
