I am a 47-year-old Nigerian living in Florida, USA. I hold a Master’s degree in Business Administration and Managerial Economics. I am a traveler. 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 of middleclass families and interest groups. I like soccer, tennis and wrestling.
Major influences on my life include:
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 older brother, Golden. My Aunts and their husbands were the best friends and rolemodels anyone would want in life. Too many for space. Their memories fill the world in me.
Later: Late Oral & Evelyn Roberts (Tulsa Oklahoma), Don Steward; Bishop Innocent Erimujo, Dr. Chima Amadi; Elder Patrick Nnacheta; Elder Mike Duru; Moris Cerulo, Jean Osteen, T.L. Osborne; Late Rocky L. Fairman (India). Dr. Ron Shaw (India); Dr./Mrs Pascal Gabriel Dozie, 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 Bible. I am immensely fascinated with the language and authenticity of the King James version.
· Readers Digest: I could give up all my lunch money just to get a copy. I read and collected every known copy, 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, Richard Wurmbrand; Norman Vincent, Ellen G. White, and all.
I had a good hunger for biographies of great leaders and military generals: George Washington, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, and Queen Elizabeth II; 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.
Personalities: Queen Elizabeth II (Woman among all women), Clement Attlee (Prince of Prime Minsters), Napoleon Bonaparte, Christopher Columbus; Oral Roberts, George H. Bush, Bill Clinton, late Mrs. Indira Gandhi; Margaret Thatcher, Shimon Perez, Helmut Schmidt and Helmut Kohl. Others are: the McDonnell Douglas Story, Gerhard Schroder, Mikhail Gorbachev; George W. Bush, and a few others.
