After his defeat in the Saturday night fight, Conor McGregor partied at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas according to TMZ. Even though he lost the fight to Floyd Mayweather, he was said to have earned around $100million (€83.9million) according to Irish Independent + more on the way from other deals.  Trust me, with that kind of money, any “loser” would party and foot the bill of 85k at a post-fight party. But wait, yep, McGregor lost the Saturday night fight to Floyd Mayweather but truly, is he really a loser?

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I have a small story to share with you on WHY I think McGregor is not a loser and WHY we must all “be McGregored” by learning these 3 lessons from his life so far……..

 

MONEY TALK :: HOW MUCH DO FASHION BLOGGERS SPEND ON CLOTHES?

I belong to a group that gives money advice daily. The owner of the group teaches on how to build wealth. In other words, she teaches on how to make money but most importantly, how to ensure that you keep the money. You know making money and keeping the money you make are two different things right? It is possible to make money and not keep it. It is when we keep the money we make that we can build wealth. However, life happens sometimes which can make us need emergency funds like paying for a car engine to be fixed. In this case, what do we do? Some take payday loan from Northcash Loans and some pay for the repairs from their savings?

REVIEW OF THE REAL TECHNIQUES CORE COLLECTION BRUSHES (#AskMJ)

Hi Mj, Can you please do a review of brushes that are durable and affordable. XO………”A”

 

I was sent a request to help look for a set of make up brushes that are affordable but can stand the test of time. And like I always say, getting flawless make up is not about how expensive your products (make up) are BUT how well you can apply your make up + the tools you use.

 

FOOTAGE FROM THE BOOK LAUNCH ::: Book Signing, Meet & Great & After Party

Hope you had a nice week. I did myself. You may have noticed that I took a little break from posting here on the blog.

Thanks again to everyone who came through.
