What if we meet angels everyday?
I know the picture in your head, I have the same picture:
Long white robe, huge flapping wings, long brown hair with a halo hovering above their head and well manicured feet. Please don’t argue with my imagination.
I attended this conference to listen to just two people speak: Steve Harris and Fela Durotoye. I didn’t know any other person so I had no expectations. Shock on me when each speaker started pouring out deep wisdom from their wells of it.
Prior to this conference, I had no idea who Olori Ajayi was and right before she spoke, I had to check her out on Google (trust me not to dull).
She’s a Fashion Entrepreneur, the founder of The KATIE WANG Company and the brain behind “Fashion on Wheels” which is the 1st Complete Fashion Store ON WHEELS in Nigeria and West Africa.
Scrolling through my Instagram feed late August, the poster for this conference caught my attention and i was like “OMG!!! Fela Durotoye & Steve Harris live in the flesh” I was so gassed. I had to be in attendance.
After so much anticipation, I finally watched Kemi Adetiba’s “King Women” series. If you haven’t watched it yet, catch the full scoop HERE I binge watched 10 episodes and each one loaded with wisdom, loads of it. Looking forward to watching more episodes. Contrary to popular belief (or not), it’s not a series on a “feminist approach to life” or something just women will benefit from.
ME: Hey girl, So I have this segment on my blog that I want to revive, It’s called INSPIRE. There’s definitely a lot of people that inspire you but I want you to write about your Uncle Debola. Tell me what about him inspires you. You might be inspiring someone reading it with that story plus I know it’s something you’d enjoy writing.
DAISY: Good, I will write about uncle.
So what’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the acronym Y.O.L.O?… That’s what I asked them and this is what they had to say: Ah!, you only live once na.. Party hard.. Drinking till I blackout.. Smoking.. Being spontaneous.. Doing lots of crazy things. If anyone tries to interfere in my business I’ll just tell them.. YOLO baby!!!!
I have always loved Oprah. I do not have a particular reason but I just grew up loving her and how successful she was. The irony of this was that I never stalked her like I usually stalk people I love like Steve Jobs (RIP). So let’s just say my love for her was from a distance.
