5 Entrepreneurship Lessons Working In McDonald's

I want to start this article about 5 entrepreneurship lessons I gained working in Mcdonald’s with one of my favourite quotes by Steve Jobs “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
Sometimes you go through your journey in life and wonder of what use the experience is to your future.
It’s taking me a while to write this article, simply because I didn’t know how to put it in words and translate the journey to an experience that will encourage you. Sometimes we spend so long thinking about doing something and we never get around doing it. Some call it procrastination; I just call it pure laziness and excuses to not do.
I spent over 6 years in the UK for studies right after Secondary School in Nigeria. This is a really long story and as you may know I can talk for Africa, so I will try to keep it short and straight to the point. After spending a year supporting my aunty who I was living with at the time, she finally got me a job working with Mcdonalds (Brimsdown, Enfield London to be precise).

Top 10 Chemicals to Avoid on Natural Hair and Skin by Rachel Asakome

If you have plans to take good care of your natural hair and skin, here are some top 10 chemicals to avoid. I get so many emails from people asking me what chemicals are safe for their hair etc, well below is a list of a few chemicals that are a definite NEVER for black hair! Remember, whatever you use on your hair is absorbed into your body through your scalp. This is why I advocate the use of 100% natural or Organic products, it’s easier than trying to dodge chemicals. That being said, I still advice that you read the ingredients of every product before you purchase it, just because something says it’s natural or organic on the face doesn’t mean it’s safe!
