Today, Arese Ugwu  author of the wildly popular  ‘The Smart Money Woman’ book and founder of the Smart Money Movement and personal finance website Smart Money Africa will officially turn 34 years old—and she’s marking the occasion in the best way possible: with a brand-new book! If you’re one of her 105,000 followers, you know she’s been sharing sneak peeks of her writing and editing process, and today we finally get to pre-order it!

She shared the new cover on Instagram and in the accompanying caption, Arese gives us a little insight into what topics the book will tackle.

My second book The Smart Money Tribe is a follow up to @thesmartmoneywomanbook!!! You see Zuri, Tami, Lara, Ladun and Adesuwa on a new level dealing with new personal finance struggles, finding creative ways to conquer their obstacles!!. A major theme in this book is friendship and the important role our friendship circles play especially with regards to how we earn, spend, keep and grow money. .

It tackles, issues like investing for growth, financial decision trees, networking for profit, raising capital, intrapreneurship, how to assess investment opportunities etc

Do Zuri and Tsola get married? Do Adesuwa and Soji get a divorce or get back together?

Does Tami scale her fashion business to the next level? Does Lara find love? Does Ladun adjust after her fabulous housewife status is abruptly taken away? .

If you want to be one of the first to read a signed copy of the book PRE ORDER link in my bio? delivery to the folks who preorder start on the 30th of April! .

No better way to celebrate my birthday ?”

With a stylish TV show in the offing (which apparently has Osas Ighodaro Ajibade attached to it already) we can’t wait to see what this year will hold for the talented author!
