The picture above is of me, after a visit to the arts museum Ateneum in Helsinki. It was a new and fun experience for me.
Sorry, I forgot to introduce myself. I have one of the longest and hardest names in the world. I am James Obed Ngalikua Okila Wonga also known as Okila James. I will describe myself as a book nerd, a doer and I like to practice combat sports (Kick boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Wrestling) for self-discipline. This about page is not only about me.
Now it’s time to talk about what Willing2beWealthy has to offer
Maybe you are wondering what this blog is about, how it can help you or what value it can add to your life. Right! My mission is to encourage everyone to take control over their finances, to share tips that will help you create wealth, to build a community of go- getters and to make it a place where you can financially educate yourself.

How everything started
Currently, I am in my 3rd year of my Business administration degree in The Bucharest University of Economics Studies. The desire to launch this blog started about a year ago, in 2018. Even though my program is all about numbers and the management of a company, I had no idea how the stock market works or how I could start creating wealth while studying. Surprisingly I wasn’t the only one in this situation. I realized most of my colleagues were also in the same position. We studied business but had no clue how to manage our personal finances. As a result, we missed out on a lot of opportunities the stock market, real estate and the internet had to offer.
The change that made a difference
During the last 2 years of my life I changed my perspective on books. Instead of reading just for fun, I started focusing mainly on genres that provided me with knowledge I needed for self- improvement. I also subscribe to several sites such as: http://www.investopedia.com/slide-show/learn-how-to-invest/ to learn how to invest in the stock market and develop my financial intelligence and real estate from: https://www.thebalance.com/real-estate-investing-101-357985
As a result, my desire to invest in the stock market grew and even though I was broke, I took a step by educating myself on how the stock market works. So, while I am still learning, I thought it wouldn’t harm anyone if I share the knowledge I acquire along the way.
An idea come to my mind, why not share what I am learning? Why not encourage others to financially educate themselves? Why not build a community of like-minded people? Since then I made a promise to myself; to build a platform where both my colleagues and anyone with a driving to build wealth, can financially educate themselves. If you have time and need more details about my vision you can read this post: https://willing2bewealthy.com/2019/09/06/4-ways-to-start-creating-wealth-for-students/
To whom is this blog addressed to?
- To those with a driving desire to build wealth.
- To those who are not yet financially literate, but are willing to learn
- To an ordinary person who wants to become extraordinary
- To those who are financially literate, want to take action and are also willing to share ideas with like-minded people.
Let’s build a community together
If you found yourself in any of the descriptions above, I would like to connect with you. Yes, you. My idea is to be a catalyst, to encourage people to take the first step in making things happen.
Given that this platform was the outcome of my desire to build a community where financial knowledge can easily circulate, I am whole heartedly open to feedbacks.
