What is networking

& Why is it important 

Networking is actively sharing the necessary information with the right people for mutual benefit.

While what you know still matters, in this day and age, it’s who you know and who knows you, that matters more. “Networking is the backbone of business, underpinning every successful company regardless of where in the world it operates. 

Meaning of Diaspora 

To be a diaspora means you are dispersed from a place of your origin. The diaspora concept embraces the idea or the desire to return to that place of origin. This desire however is often an internal struggle hidden deep inside and it is intensified by the knowledge that there are many impediments that make the return almost an impossibility. But you keep hoping.


While earning a salary is very good, it’s not good enough for creating wealth Most of us migrated from our countries of origin in search of better economic opportunities – where the pastures looked greener. Yes, we have taken advantage of the opportunities around us and we are better off than what we were before we came. Now we want to go from just thriving to creating wealth.
