So many of us – if not all – passed through school without the slightest understanding of the most important thing that served as the motivation for our being in school in the first place – Money.
We went to school to acquire knowledge or employable skills that will earn us a living in future but we were hardly taught how money works, how to read a financial statement and how to make money work for us.
As you will get to learn on this blog, there is a reason for this abnormally.
Naturally, one would expect those studying Accounting, Banking and Finance to be experts on these issues but that is not always the case. Some of them happen to learn only the theory of finance and its application on their jobs while their personal financial life is in a mess.
I am sure that most of us have come to accept the hard truth that contrary to our wild childhood ambitions, not all Accountants are rich and not all Bankers sleep on money.
In fact, they are the classical symbolism of the victims of the Rat Race.
You are Welcome to the writing pad of the Financial Intelligence Coach where you’ll get first-hand financial education blog posts that center around ten major areas as shown below:
1.) PERSONAL FINANCE:
Personal finance has been defined by Wikipedia as the financial management which an individual or a family unit performs to budget, save, and spend monetary resources over time, taking into account various financial risks and future life events.
An Entrepreneur is a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk. He is a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.
Rather than working as an employee, an entrepreneur runs a small business and assumes all the risk and reward of a given business venture, idea, or good or service offered for sale.

Business intelligence is an umbrella term that includes the applications, infrastructure and tools, and best practices that enable access to and analysis of information to improve and optimize decisions and performance. Running a customer-focused, profitable Business in the 21st Century is a skill that must be learnt and the FINTEL Coach is ready to teach you that.
4.) PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT:
Personal Development covers activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance the quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.
This is a lifelong process and something that should be continually pursued by everyone that is desirous of a better life, productivity and Financial Freedom.
According to my mentor John Maxwell, “everything rises and falls on Leadership”. If you must succeed as a student or at work as a Civil Servant, Entrepreneur, CEO, Employee or individual, you have to develop your Leadership skills.
An effective Leader should be able to create an inspiring vision of the future, motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision. This blog can help you achieve this.
The surest pathway to wealth creation is Investment and only the Financially wise have ever garnered enough courage to trod that path. An investment, according to Investopedia, is an asset or item that is purchased with the hope that it will generate income or will appreciate in the future.
In an economic sense, an investment is the purchase of goods that are not consumed today but are used in the future to create wealth. If you are interested in exploring the investment options available to you for wealth creation (from Real Estate to Paper Investment), then you are in the right place to source for that.
7.) MULTILEVEL MARKETING:
So many people are confused about the difference between Multilevel (Network) Marketing – the home-based industry that has made more millionaires than any other and Ponzi Schemes – that have succeeded in robbing lots of greedy Nigerians of millions of Naira.
MLM is definitely not for everyone. But for those that are willing to get out of the rat race, the FINTEL Coach will teach you how to build and leverage on a team of focused networkers in order to achieve your goal.
8.) DEBT MANAGEMENT:
Perhaps one of the topmost reasons for creating this blog is to help people out of self-inflicted Financial Bondage that originates from Bad Debt. People who borrow money can do so for a whole range of reasons which could be either destructive or beneficial.
Here’s the trick, “unless the debt is a loan to finance your business, you have no business being in debt”.
In case you are entangled in lots of bad debt already, you are on the right platform to get useful tips on how to manage and eventually pay off your debts.
