    10 Signs You’ll be a Badass Successful Woman

    I don’t believe success is genetically determined, because if that is the case, it means some of us won’t even stand a chance. I believe success is a product of what you do and do not do. And even if it was genetically determined, you’d still need to put the genes to work, else, they’d lie dormant. These acts that determine success eventually become the signs that others will see, and know that you’re destined for success. This means that no matter who you are, what you do, and your circumstances, you can be a badass successful woman if you put these acts to work.   So, what are the…

    Why People Don’t Like Working With Female Bosses

    The fact that women are now shattering glass ceilings and calling the shots at organizations is quite laudable. However, while women are proving societal stereotypes wrong and taking the lead, some people say they’d rather work with male bosses than female bosses. Why?

Read their opinions below: ”Nobody likes to work with bad bosses either a male or female. Only that bad female bosses are worse than the male. If she has a bad day, you are going to have to a bad day at work too.” – Oluyemi…

    The Best and Only Way to Form and Maintain Habits for Self Personal Development

Habits help us to develop routines that make life orderly and organized. Imagine doing different random things every day. Life will be chaotic that way.
