I have seen a lot of crappy CVs and some very beautiful ones.

One of the most important source of info about you is your CV. It can help you get that job especially if tension has the best of you.

So this a thread about CVs and how it could help you get that job. My 9-5 requires that I interview a lot of guys. So this is from my experience and that of colleagues I’ve shared interview panels with over the years.

CVs are even more critical now that employees are now being hired Zoom or Skype. #WFH

Feel free to add yours.

So the craziest thing just happened to me today.

I meant to transfer N15k to a colleague NA yesterday and typed the account number. Logged into my banking app initiated transfer and completed transaction.

If only I knew... Then today my colleague whom I was to transfer to buzzed and said she had not received the money. I’m like I transferred to you nau.

And then she is like hope you didn’t transfer to someone else oh!

That’s when all the hairs on my body rose. How can?

So, last December I was at a bar having drinks with the CEO of a Microfinance bank. Of course he was paying for the drinks 🙈🙈

And then he asked if I had seen their new mobile app. I’m like no I haven’t.

He asked me to download...and errmm I sha downloaded. He urges me to go ahead and register that I’ll have my account setup in 5 minutes. I’m like hell no.

No bank in Nigeria can open an account for you in 5 minutes on mobile.

Or so I thought...

What is the worst investment decision you ever made?

I’ll start with how I lost over N3m investing in one stupid diaper business. 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

THREAD Sometime in 2014 I was in the states with some friends so we got talking about diversifying into trade.

I mostly invest in equities and securities but they felt it was time to venture into trade. So they mooted this diaper business.

MTN’s 2019 Half year revenue was N566.9 billion

Half year profits was N98 billion

Its shareholders equity is N101.3b

Return on Equity is 95% (half year only).

Tell me why this isn’t God owns Company?? MTN total assets is about N1.48 trillion and return on assets of 6.6%.

With a return on equity of 95%, MTN basically relies on OPP to make money.

No sweeter business model than that. Why in this world will they ever bother with an IPO?? Why??

So we ran an analysis on inflation rate since 2011.

See results

1. March 2011- March 2015

CPI change of 42.4%

2. March 2015 - March 2019

CPI change of 67%

3. March 2011 - March 2019

CPI change of 137% Btw CPI changes equals inflation rate. CPI is basically the basket of goods and services measured by the NBS.

Goods and services in the basket all have different weighting.

The CBN cut rates by 0.5% to 13.5% yesterday (March 26)

How does this affect you?

Thread The MPR is the rate at which the CBN lends it borrows money to the bank + or - 2%. Yesterday the CBN reduces the Monetary Policy Rate (MPR) from 14% to 13.5% for the first time since 2015. This was a surprising move and was unexpected.
