As simple as the herald today may look I would like you to learn the following from her life.
1. Commitment isn’t easy but consistency in committed opens the door of greatness. What have you discovered in your life that you will never regress in your commitment level to it. Don’t just live, live for a reason that is divine and impartful. Perhaps if Linda had given up on blogging as far back as 2007 you would have never had to see her on heralds today. Don’t quit because of today’s challenges, stand for the great future ahead of you.
2. It doesn’t have to be invoke to be profitable. Always be smart enough to see opportunities and who knows, you may soon become the most Searched trend on Google soon.
