Wikipedia : Simple Living

Simple living encompasses a number of different voluntary practices to simplify one's lifestyle.
  • These may include reducing one's possessions, generally referred to as Minimalism, or increasing self-sufficiency, for example.
  • Simple living may be characterized by individuals being satisfied with what they have rather than want.[1][2]
  • Although asceticism generally promotes living simply and refraining from luxury and indulgence, not all proponents of simple living are ascetics.[3]
  • Simple living is distinct from those living in forced poverty, as it is a voluntary lifestyle choice.

Mahatma Gandhi spinning yarn in 1942. Gandhi believed in a life of simplicity and self-sufficiency.

When was the last time you won a scholarship?

I've been reading business tips on BellaNaija, and got a referral to check out this training programme that teaches SALES

It looks really good.
It's scheduled for all day (10am-4pm) next Friday and Saturday Nov 20-21, 2015 at the Omole/Ikeja office of Acceltage... 

If you want to get a 10k discount courtesy me @ UpNaira, drop a comment now (latest Nov 14th) stating why.  (Are you a business owner?  Sales professional?  Neither?  Why do you want/need this experience?)

One person will be chosen semi-randomly, and in addition to paying 10k of the fee on their behalf, I will request an additional discount of 10,000 naira from the training provider, and so if that is granted you will only need to pay about 10,000 naira.  Again, this looks like a really good programme, especially if you live on Lagos Mainland (Ikeja and co) 

Cheers.  Tell whoever you think may use this info.

This applet will self-destruct in 72 hours

CODEGIRL is a documentary film that follows the story of 5,000 girls from 60 countries (including Nigeria) as they compete in the "Technovation" global entrepreneurship and coding competition.

Watch (at least watch the second half),
share (with the young girls and techies in your life),
and make sure you leave a comment about the cool ending.

Details: The girls have three months to develop an app that attempts to solve a problem in their local community. In the film, they size up their competition, interact with teachers and local mentors, learn to code, and pitch their ideas all in hopes of winning $10,000 in funding and support. REALLY COOL ENDING.
