Inspired by Glory


Its been ages since I recorded my last vlog, which is why I am super excited to bring to your attention that within the next 10 days I will be releasing a series of vlogs all aimed at helping you up your networking game. I had so much fun recording the videos, they had to beg me to leave the venue..LOL.

In the first video I decided to tackle an issue many career women have when it comes to networking…the lack of results. It’s like when you are on a diet, eating leaves and bananas all day, only to check the scale a week later and you have added 1kg! Y-E-K-P-A! Well just like dieting, there is a right and wrong way to Network and I share it all in this video…all for your viewing pleasure.

Please try and find the time to watch this series of videos as they will only be available for a limited time. You can watch the first video by clicking here

Two of Nigeria’s foremost women empowerment platforms Inspired by Glory, a personal development hub for women and Her Network, a networking platform for women, recently hosted career women to an evening of networking games, career development conversations and lively debates.

9to5chick is a product of Inspired by Glory dedicated to providing skills for career women to thrive in the workplace. The aim of the event was to create opportunities for professional women to network within and outside their sectors, learn key tips to excel in their careers and discuss issues that impact directly on women in the workplace.

The event which took place at Eve Restaurant in Victoria Island, featured career development tips led by high powered career women such as Peace Hyde, Forbes West Africa Correspondent, who shared tips on networking tips for career women; Chioma Dike, Senior Special Assistant, Lagos State Ministry of Women’s Affairs, who spoke on how women can support each other in the workplace and Toyin Awesu, Head Marketing and Communications, United Capital, who shared visibility tips for career women.

The event also featured conversations, which tackled hot button career issues faced by women such as harassment and discrimination against women in the workplace and surviving in male dominated careers.

Participants at the event commended the organisers for a highly impactful event, with one attendee remarking “it was an evening well-spent, with stimulating conversations” and another noting “I didn’t expect to enjoy myself as much as I did, it was great learning from speakers while meeting and making new friends.”

Two leading female empowerment groups in Nigeria are planning a joint programme for professional women.

Tagged “Career Conversation and Cocktails,” the organisers of the programme, Inspired by Glory and Her Network, a foremost networking platform for women, said it would afford career women to network with like minds in a relaxed atmosphere.

“The event…promises to be bags of fun! From speed networking games, lively debates, career conversations, giveaways and off course cocktails, you can be sure of quite a memorable time with like minded women and stimulating conversations,” the organisers said in a statement.

“Light but impactful career development tips will also be given by Forbes West Africa Correspondent, Peace Hyde, senior special assistant to the commissioner of women’s affairs in Lagos State, Chioma Dike and head, marketing and communications, United Capital, Toyin Awesu.”The programme which is set to hold on May 11 at the Eve Restaurant 234b Adeola Odeku Road, Victoria Island attracts N2, 500 registration fee.

**This was posted for free in view of our vision to continually support women and their businesses****

The notion that women do not support or empower women is now a thing of the past. On February 4, 2017, Inspired by Glory- a personal development and lifestyle platform for career women and female entrepreneurs and Bubez Centre for Women Empowerment, a platform committed to reducing poverty levels among Nigerian women through enhancing productivity and collaboration, partnered to provide a premier goals setting seminar which aimed to help participants create actionable goals and roadmaps for building fulfilled lives.

The seminar had in attendance female entrepreneurs and professional career women who learnt techniques on how to position their businesses and professional lives. During the workshop participants also learnt how to set Specific, Measurable, Attainable and Time based i.e. SMART Goals and where equipped with the know-how on how to remain focused, audacious and inspired towards success throughout the year.

The Goals Summit is a yearly event put together by Inspired by Glory Founder, Glory Edozien, who says, “more women need to be empowered with the tools to succeed. Setting yearly goals and giving women the tools to create actionable steps is the starting point of our empowerment efforts. This is why it was important for us to collaborate with the Bubez Centre for Women Empowerment which has since had a long standing reputation of empowering women.

The Bubez Centre for Women Empowerment was founded by MD and CEO of Bubez Foods, Ijeoma Ndukwe-Egwuronu. A dynamic and highly-sought- after business strategist who, after just a few years of starting her business in her kitchen, now records a 343 per cent increase in sales of their flagship product Bubez Pap, since the factory opening in June 2015.

Attendees of the workshop also expressed that the aims and objectives of the workshop had been met. One participant noted that the workshop was filled with relevant content and another remarked that she was glad she made the required investment to attend the workshop, as it was a great decision.




So before I proceed with the usual banter that accompanies my vlogs, I guess I should say two things. The first is, Happy Valentine’s Day! May love always be in your life!

The second is a bit of a confession. Although this is a love/relationship styled vlog, I actually recorded it MONTHS ago but for some reason never released. And given we are smack bang in the season of love, it seemed appropriate to do so now.

This video is actually a sequel to an earlier vlog “How to make a Nigerian woman Happy” which you can watch here (link- https://youtu.be/WmFbOzo9snI). To create this video, I called quite a number of male friends and I was surprised by how simple and quite frankly ‘basic’ they claimed their requirements for happiness were.


As you watch this video, remember that every relationship is different because the people who make up these relationships, differ in backgrounds, character and many other things, so it is important to first understand your partner. It also always helpful to actually have an upfront conversation- ask him or her- what makes you happy? How can we both make our relationship, marriage or friendship a happy one?

So do you think you make your man happy? Please feel free to share some tips and tricks in the comments section or email me on glory@inspiredbyglory.com and if you haven’t done so already, please be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel @inspiredbyglory. Catch ya later!

Thank you!

See you next week!


On a new episode of “Discovery with Glory”, the vlogger gets candid about friendship.

She says”

“Friendships add to the quality to our lives. Good friends tell us the truth, they make us laugh, keep us entertained, keep our secrets and help us stand when we can’t. Learning to celebrate our friendships and the roles they play in our lives is important. Over the years, I have made lifelong friendships and have seen just how important the roles my friends have played. That’s why I have come up with this list of 6 women we should all have as friends. Off course this list isn’t exhaustive, so please feel free to add your list in the comments section. You could also celebrate your friend today by sharing this video with her and letting her know which role she plays in your life or asking them to tell you which role you play!”
