Honour thy woman…..

Prof. Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win a Nobel Peace Price in 2004.

Women played a pivotal role in the past in the Republic of South Africa. They are the ones who marched to union building in protest of pass laws. Africa especially gave birth to women heroine whose selfless spirit champions the vision of women in the developmental state in Africa. Africa gave birth to beautiful daughters: daughters who uplift the spirits of their hopeless siblings, while reminding them that with dare attitude, dedication and nourishment of their talent they too can climb the celestial heights.

I am talking about women such as the recently elected chairman of the AU, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the first African woman president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, and the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Price, Dr Wangari Maathai. These are women which young girls can look up to and be fueled with inspiration to do great things.

To encourage o’mama nabo sisi be Africa, I believe in inspiration, and I hope that by embedding this video below, they will be motivated. The speech is delivered by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, and it is titled Women entrepreneurs, example not exception and in her speech she encourages women to be entrepreneurs and calls women to move beyond what she terms “micro-ambitions’.

Ambition kills, Ambition motivates!!!

Dear Inner-self

As my full-time undergraduate career is slowly coming to an end, I always wake up to a call that says “should I follow an MBA or CA(SA) qualification?”. After all they are both recognised as the most prestigious business qualification in this country. As for CA(SA) decision, reading industry specific news doesn’t seem to help. As for MBA, the thought of being a CEO of a blue chip company, just drives me to a place of hard-working individuals. Please help!!!!

Business is my thing, commerce and industry is my specialization. What about Audit? I think Auditing is for people who are rather much more like me. Should I consider it as a career of choice? The answer is simple, am already an auditor, but the difference is am not yet certified. Therefore I am an uncertified Auditor.

Only God knows how much I love the Accounting industry. However challenging studies may seem, I am hanging in there by trying to add more and more flavour to my studies. How?

MBA (Master of Business Administration) seem to be a licence to a qualification for CEO designates. You need to be a leader in order to take any corporation to greater heights. It seems that business schools in this country are profiting from the so called leadership qualification.

At the end of the day it is apparent that if accountants, actuaries, social scientists and mathematicians can sit down, a new profession will be born. This professionals will come up with a career that deduce formula of being a powerhouse in the career world. they will among other things deduce a formula of being successful in life.

Thanks to confusion regarding my career of choice, because it gave birth to this article.

The reality of the situation is I dig the world of mercantile.

I can go for ever giving perks and benefits of working in the Accounting sector.

With lots of ambition at heart
