The past few months have been trying for Ade with the forced adaption to the new normal brought about by the coronavirus.
He had planned his wedding for April 29th, 2020, and sent out invitations early January, but the lockdown put a halt to his robust marital plans. He, being the ever-optimistic dude, resorted to a private wedding with his family and friends joining via Zoom to witness him tie the knot. Strange as it looked and felt, he got that out of the way while saving a few nairas here and there.
Just when he and his wife had kick-started marital bliss, he gets the unwanted news that everyone in his company would receive a pay-cut due to the losses the company had incurred during the pandemic.
Ade sat one evening staring at the goals he had set for 2020 which included:
Get a physical store for perfume business (Side hustle) and hire a store manager
Bump investment up 20% and diversify his portfolio
Get a raise
