PODCAST: The Lies That Women Have Been Told - Bozoma Saint John, (CMO) at Netflix

“I am disturbed by the fact that there are less Black women in C-suite positions than there were five years ago,” she told Adweek in February. “That is really disturbing to me. The trend should be moving the other way. Why is it not? We are constantly paving these roads, we’re breaking these ceilings, we’re climbing these rungs, and why is it that we cannot still make any headway? That keeps me up at night. I want to solve that. I want to be a part of the solution.” - Bozoma Saint John, Global Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at @Netflix. Prior to this role, she was the chief brand officer at Uber and the CMO for Endeavor.

My Earth, My City and My Heartthrob

#saturdayvibes💋My Earth, My City and My Heartthrob  
When the Atlas shook The floors cracked under our feet.And the walls collapsed. Coughs of inferno Raining fiery ashes down Fuel of fire flows. Rising up higher  The waves swallow shells and sand While the swimmers scream. 
Lagos city crawls Tortoise caught in winding paths Lost in the jungle. Heaps of refuse Decorating the streets With evil miasma. Commuters picket As pump prices Of fuel rise.  
Oh, humanity! Why are you such a wonder That makes me numb.Only God knows how How the wind in autumn blows How the river flows. Life is a prayer Total submission to GodOvercomes the world.
I see the rainbow In seven colours When life is in bloom. In the summer of love Passions bloom like sunflowersIn garden of life. Adeleke came Our muse ascended higher Reaching for the stars.  Stark silken tresses 
Glowing eyelashes of night The sheen of the moon. Twin blinking brown balls Golden eye lashes of dawn In the rising sun. Even heaven knows What my h…

VOGUE: What Does A Model Get Paid?

What Does A Model Get Paid?
While the road to becoming a successful model is often paved with challenges, hard work and plenty of rejection, it can be a lucrative career. Aspiring models should note though that a lot of editorial work is not paid for, but rather done in order to build up one’s book, or model portfolio. Up-and-comers should also be aware that even if you have booked a show at fashion week, say in Paris, or Milan, any flights and accommodation required to get there are also covered by models themselves.  
As Alexina Graham, who is both a Victoria’s Secret Angel and L'Oréal Paris brand ambassador, tells Vogue candidly:  “I started at 18 and earned very little money for five years. It wasn’t until my sixth year that I started earning; I was ready to give up.”

They Walk Among Us, AND They Reproduce!

True Tales...They Walk Among Us! True Tales......
Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to go home. You want it, you take it." For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked too good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale 50." The next day someone stole it. 
Whilst looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?" 
When my brother explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff." They Walk Among Us!! 
I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I…
