Arese Ugwu teaches women financial freedom with book tour
Arese Ugwu, personal finance expert and founder of the Smart Money Africa movement has embarked on a tour of key cities in Nigeria with her new book titled, The Smart Money Woman: An African Girl’s Journey to Financial Freedom.
The savvy author had been teaching women about financial freedom on the tour which started in Ibadan, Oyo State and had moved to Lagos, Delta and Akwa Ibom states.
Readers, fans and all inspired by the book were said to have interacted with the author in the past one month since the tour began, reported punchng.com
“So far the tour events have included book readings, meet-and-greets, book signing, questions and answer sessions, and conversations over cocktails,” the statement said. “The feedback from the guests has been overwhelmingly positive, with many especially applauding the author’s initiative in bringing the book and her message of financial freedom to the masses herself.”
Ugwu, who is a notable voice in financial wellness discourse, currently co-hosts two talk-show series that are helping to shape the new narrative on personal finance in the media, engaging young Africans on the importance of financial literacy and the impact it has on helping them to get, keep and grow money as they drive the continent forward.
Commenting, Ugwu described the book as a juicy tale of five girlfriends in Lagos, navigating incredible financial woes and coming out victorious.
She said, “Zuri, a single 28 year-old woman, who is a senior manager in a top firm in Lagos, finds herself broke and unable to make ends meet. She is also in dire need of a change in her lifestyle.
“Along with her best friends — Tami, Lara, Adesuwa and Ladun — Zuri grows a little and learns a lot. Through the interesting scenarios of the fictional characters, Arese offers practical, step-by-step advice and solutions to a number of financial issues from investment and debt to budgeting and entrepreneurship.”
