DEBT : SLAVERY IN DISGUISE,WRITTEN BY OBIOMA ANUKWUEM, AN INSPIRATIONAL ENTREPRENEUR & MEDICAL DOCTOR BASED IN THE STATES

PRESS RELEASE

New book features mental and practical strategies for debt elimination

Obioma Anukwuem shares how he completely eliminated debt from his life

SALISBURY, N.C. – According to a report by the Pew Charitable Trusts, eight in 10 Americans are in some form of debt, most often because of a mortgage. Obioma Anukwuem knows how debt and financial struggles can ruin personal lives and relationships. More importantly, he knows that it is possible to break free from financial bondage and live a life of financial independence. He shares how in his new book, “Debt: Slavery in Disguise” (published by Xlibris).

In “Debt: Slavery in Disguise(how I paid a debt of half a million dollars in three and a half years),” Anukwuem shares the travails and triumphs of living the American dream. He had accumulated huge personal debt and realized that his spending habits would make his financial problems worse if he did not make drastic changes. The book not only describes his inspiring story, it shares the personally tried and tested strategies he used for debt elimination.

“I wrote this book to show that nothing is impossible if you dare and that ordinary people can do extraordinary things,” Anukwuem says. “Theoretically eliminating debt in its entirety is possible but it takes actually working on it to achieve any kind of results. That was what I did when I turned a claim on debt freedom into reality in the face of so many odds. That is why I wanted to share my experience.”

Timely and practical, “Debt: Slavery in Disguise” offers a blueprint for building a life of financial freedom and security. Anukwuem’s story will resonate with many who are enduring money problems.

Overview

In Debt: Slavery in Disguise, Obi Anukwuem captures the travails and triumphs of living the American dream. From his experiences, he sheds light on the traps that can ensnare us when we want to live well. He consciously and subconsciously allowed negative influences from people and things around him get him sidetracked, but he knew it was mostly his own doing. He forgot his own life and began to live other people’s lives in an effort to belong. Through poor judgment, indecisiveness, weak principles, and greed, he accumulated huge personal debt. He realized that his spending habits would make his debt matters only worse if he did not do something urgently about his debt. It stole his peace of mind many times. He did not cease until he found a way out of his bondage to debt. Even though he seemed to have stumbled into what promised to help eliminate his debt, he knew that it would take more than just a theory to tackle his problems.

The author believes that to do well in any area of life, we must be true to ourselves, be passionate about what we want, be decisive, and do right all the time. Our dreams, motivations, and aspirations have to always be at the forefront of our thoughts. Unless we change our mentality, life will always seem to be the same.

Through perseverance, huge sacrifice, and a desperate desire for a peace of mind, Obi and his family eliminated approximately $500,000 in personal debt in about three and a half years. He recalled a negative net worth just before this venture. Now, he no longer has to share his wealth with greedy creditors; his net worth is positive, no longer negative, and it continues on a healthy, upward trajectory.

His story can be yours as well.

His book can be found on amazon.

“WORLD DIABETES DAY” 14TH NOVEMBER 2016, WRITTEN BY CHIGBO UZOKWELU

World Diabetes Day
By Chigbo Uzokwelu Esq.

 

Today 14th November 2016 is the World Diabetes Day.

Diabetes has been established as one the fastest growing health issues across all the continents of the world. The situation is now so critical that the World Health Organization projects that Diabetes will be the seventh leading cause of death by 2030.

 

This is a grim reality for mankind but the good news is that we can actually control the factors that lead to the diagnosis.

 

Ultimately we can go for a change of lifestyle to keep diabetes and other ailments at bay.

 

We can reduce the over-consumption of sugary diet.

 

We can start using our bodies more and adopt routine exercises to achieve a healthier wellbeing.

 

As we remember Diabetes today, you should all note that there is no better time to get yourself on track to control and manage the risk factors

 

The greatest wealth is health.

ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK, MR JAMES EWA HENSHAW – FOUNDER OF JAMES ENE HENSHAW FOUNDATION

PROFILE: James Ewa Henshaw.

Between 2000 and 2013 when I returned to Nigeria I was a senior lecturer in Business and Computing at South Thames College, London where I taught on the National and Higher National Diploma courses, and was the Co-ordinator of the Foundation Degree Programme in e-Business under the auspices of Kingston University. My specialisms were Programming, Business Information Systems and Project Management.

The Arts, particularly theatre, has always been my abiding interest, something I probably inherited from growing up with a playwright father. I was deeply involved in student drama while at university. In 1986, I won an Arts Council Bursary for New Writing (Plays), and this led to setting up a theatre company which performed African plays and toured mainly around the North-East of England. Subsequently, I took a post as a Community Arts Development Officer attached to Northern Arts based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

After taking up a teaching career, I continued to be involved with a amateur and semi- professional theatre, and directed plays for the Calabar Union in the United Kingdom.

After the death of my father, spurred by the desire to maintain his literary legacy I set up the James Ene Henshaw Foundation and returned to Nigeria.

The Foundation has since republished 3 plays by the late playwright, Ene Henshaw, and got them back on the English curriculum for secondary schools in a number of States, as well as several universities in the country. Reviving the practice of drama in secondary schools, as well as encouraging the growth of a theatre-going culture in the local community are the main challenges taken on by the Foundation. We are addressing these issues through our PLAYS-TO- SCHOOLS programme and the Season of World Classics which we have opened with SIZWE BANSI IS DEAD.

“FADED” WRITTEN BY ADEDAYO AGARAU, WINNER OF THE TONY TOKUNBO FERNANDEZ INTERNATIONAL POETRY COMPETITION 2015

Faded

faded…faded…shadows
are wearing our fathers’ shoes
moths are sniffling footprints
jagged steps
ragged breath
legged breathe
faded…faded…
we are shallow waters
melting silence into tides
we, sands weaved
in seashells
are turned in out
a funeral dress
faded…faded…
we see no dreams
nothing grows in our mouth
hands are livid
gods are silent
faded…faded…everything
