…From the bleakest of beginnings to a celebrated life at the apex of the banking industry in West Africa
Out of Africa comes this fascinating story of a female CEO rising from a background of stark illiteracy. Her journey was supposed to be marked by a lack of formal education – and an arranged marriage on the horizon by the time she grew into her teens. Through tremendous personal and family trials and despite powerful communal pressures, she would progress to get a university degree and begin a career. This rare and intimate look into the life of this award-winning CEO will take you on a compelling, engrossing, twisted and exciting adventure in the life of a woman who has risen from the most unlikely and disadvantaged of backgrounds.
Coming from a polygamous, multi-religious, deeply traditional background, leadership and tough responsibilities were foisted on her at an early age. Her job-hunting struggles are themselves interesting stories of disappointments, impediments, and determination. She has struggled, clawed and survived some of the most crushing of setbacks to emerge bold, brave and poised. With rare candidness and written with a refreshing style, this book will take you on an absorbing journey of adversity, hope, and faith. It’s a stunning memoir of an uncommon kind.

David and Goliath is the dazzling and provocative new book from Malcolm Gladwell, no.1 bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and What the Dog Saw
Why do underdogs succeed so much more than we expect? How do the weak outsmart the strong? In David and Goliath Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a scintillating and surprising journey through the hidden dynamics that shape the balance of power between the small and the mighty.
From the conflicts in Northern Ireland, through the tactics of civil rights leaders and the problem of privilege, Gladwell demonstrates how we misunderstand the true meaning of advantage and disadvantage. When does a traumatic childhood work in someone’s favour? How can a disability leave someone better off? And do you really want your child to go to the best school he or she can get into?
David and Goliath draws on the stories of remarkable underdogs, history, science, psychology and on Malcolm Gladwell’s unparalleled ability to make the connections others miss. It’s a brilliant, illuminating book that overturns conventional thinking about power and advantage.

You cannot put something on nothing and expect it to stay there. The first responsibility of every human must be the quest to identify the SELF. Have you built a foundation that can stand the load of life, or you have built a life that can wave at the load? Do you know yourself and your purpose? What defines you? Are you living for something bigger than yourself?

However, the struggles of life swing us up and down, back and forth, daily. We fall and we rise. A mixed bag that never gets full. In all these, what is your focus? Do you chase credentials or holistic capacity?
