One of the secrets that will enable you save as a young lady is this;
“Don’t follow Fashion trends!”
Be stylish but create your own personal style!
When you follow every fashion trend, you’ll spend more and end up not having any meaningful savings.
Wear sustainable outfits tailored to suit your body type!
Outfits that doesn’t fade away with the season!
Following fashion trends will make you always on point, sadly with no additional zeroes in your account.
The goal is to have meaningful savings not unnecessary expenses.
This is also one of the reasons I suggest braided wigs, braids and dreadlocks to fresh graduates more than bone straights, Abs and other expensive wigs.
I’m not saying these expensive wigs are bad….!
They are awesome but ensure you’ve saved for some years before investing in them.
They are better off on influencers and women who have built wealth of experience in their career and had taken enough time to save for many years.
You can’t be a young, struggling fresh graduate and you’re investing almost 400k to buy wigs that influencers get to wear for free just to pressure you into buying.
It doesn’t make sense!
Some of you look so expensive with nothing in your account. It doesn’t make sense!
I love luxury but I also believe in moderation and balance!
Remember, my message is STRICTLY TO YOUNG, FRESH GRADUATES trying to gain experience but they want to slay like people who graduated over 7-15 years ago with a lot of savings.
You don’t need to wound yourself!
You can look good without giving yourself blood pressure by STICKING TO YOUR PERSONAL STYLE and thinking of alternative ways to save cost so you can save more to run International courses to launch you steps further in an already competitive labour market.
Looking expensive doesn’t mean you’re rich!
Look around you, a lot of wealthy people don’t do too much. They don’t even show-off because they understand the need to protect themselves against an insecure and unsafe system.
I’ve reiterated this severally!
You must not use an iPhone 13 even if you can afford it. If your iPhone 12 is still in good shape, rock it. Enjoy it!
As a woman, you need to build!
You need to save!
You need to gather your resources and plan your future with it even before getting married.
Your husband should not meet you empty.
Build and have something.
People will see you and wonder why you don’t look trendy but they can’t decipher what you’re building. Years later, when they see your new level, they’ll be amazed at how far you’ve gone.
If you’re a fresh graduate, the goal should be to have reasonable savings and investment for at least 5 – 7years of working before you start thinking luxury.
Delaying gratification is a survival skill for those building to last because your fight is different!
