I am a 50-year-old Nigerian presently living in the USA. I hold a Master’s degree in Business Administration with a couple diplomas in Christian Theology and Pastoral Counseling. I am a traveler and a writer on not only industry and commerce but also on value systems and socio-political issues. I love great books as in biographies, the King James Version of the bible, poetry and great historical events. I write on cultural issues, political and economic development of nations, the Christian faith and socio-cultural ethics. I am a financial and investment planning expert, extensively involved in socio-economic skills and entrepreneurship development among middleclass families and interest groups. I like soccer, tennis and wrestling.
Major influences and rolemodels:
Early Life: My late dad and mom Umunna and Regina Ibeawuchi, Grandpa Dr. Oriaku; uncles Nwanegbo Mbakwe, Atanesius Oriaku, Gbogbo; Linus Mbakwe and Innocent Mbakwe, Distinguished cousin Raymond Nwanegbo (Airline pilot rtd.) and my brother brother, Golden. My Aunts and their husbands were the best friends and models anyone would want in life. Too many for space. Their memories fill the world. Later Life: Late Oral & Evelyn Roberts (Tulsa Oklahoma), Don Steward; Bishop Innocent Erimujo, Dr. Chima Amadi; Patrick Nnacheta; Mike Duru; Moris Cerulo, Jean Osteen, T.L. Osborne; Late Rocky L. Fairman (India); and the likes of Derek Prince. Others are Dr. Pascal Gabriel Dozie (my core professional tutor and mentor), Mrs. Chinyere Dozie (his beautiful awesome wife of an angel), and Prof. Anya O. Anya.
Literary Influence: Many literary works and personalities did immensely help define my life and worldview. The Bible: I grew up an avid reader of the King James version of the Bible. Readers Digest stories and scrap old newspapers. William Shakespeare and more: I read every known work by William Shakespeare… bought every copy I could afford anywhere and everywhere. I read everything by Geoffery Chaucer, Sir George Bernard Shaw; John Bunyan, Smith Wigglesworth, Anatot France, Leo Tolstoy and so on. I had a good hunger for biographies of great leaders and military generals: George Washington, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, and Queen Elizabeth II and Clement Artlee (Prince of Prime Ministers). Others are: Gen. D. MacArthur, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Mahatma Gandhi, and Jawaharlal Nehru, to name a few. I do not read biographies of new generation leaders and personalities. Many of them are too shallow and completely repulsive in their thinking. Weak leadership styles, too many bookish theories, empty talks and lack of character.
