How is your day going? I’m popping in today for a super important update!
I’m very much about my hair, but these days, I’m even more about my business- making the most of my twenties, building a work ethic, figuring out a pathway for growth in my career, and how to run a business in this economy. If you’re in the same boat, raise your hands and say ayyyy? I want you to slay in hair, and in life, too.
If you follow us on Twitter @thekinkandixx, you’d know how excited I have been about SheHiveLagos, a learning and networking bootcamp for young African career and business women!

She Leads Africa is an amazing community for anyone looking to grow their career and/or business, particularly with a focus on young African women between the ages of 18 and 35. The ladies at She Leads Africa believe in the power of African women to take over the world. From social influencers to manufacturers, SLA serves inspiration from all kinds of women getting it.
Since I first “met” She Leads Africa at an event in early 2015 (thank you, Natural Nigerian for the referral 🙂 ), it has been an invaluable resource. Sure, I need to push myself to actually DO more, but all the inspiration and motivation I feed myself there, is so so good. With #SheHiveLagos happening this week, I knew I couldn’t be playing no games, like I just HAVE to take advantage of the opportunity to attend an offline SLA bootcamp, and meet other sistren in the SLA Community!
People are coming all the way from Cameroon, guys. It is this important.

Details. When and Where?
#SheHiveLagos will be from Oct. 6-9 (Thursday to Sunday) at Heritage Place in Ikoyi. (Lugard Road, off Alfred Rewane/ Kingsway Road)
I’m really looking forward to:
- Learning new business skills
- Networking with other sistren in the SLA Community #MotherlandMoguls
- Connecting directly with potential mentors
- Indulging in some retail therapy and support fellow motherland mogul’s businesses at Sunday’s #ShopTheHive bazaar.
- Doing all of the above in an informal setting surrounded by #AfricanGirlMagic
How Can You Get To #SheHiveLagos?
Really easy, guys. Go register!
All Access Passes entitle you to attend small, individualised sessions on Thursday and Friday, as well as all the workshops and events on Saturday and Sunday. If you don’t know where to start, I suggest you start with a Day 1 pass.
This may be short notice, but I reaaaaally do hope you take advantage of this opportunity to invest in yourself, sis! More information about confirmed sessions and registration is on the She Leads Africa website HERE.
If for any reason, you can’t make it to #SheHiveLagos, you should totally join the She Leads Africa Community and make it a date to visit online, at least once a week!
Also, if you see me at #SheHiveLagos, please do not hesitate to say hello! ^_^
