She entered the Guinness Book of Records as the first woman to become a millionaire independently, without inherited money.
Sara Breedlove was born in 1867 in the south of the USA, in the state of Louisiana. Her parents, older brothers, and sister were slaves in the cotton fields. But Sara was born free. When she was 7 years old, she lost her parents. After her parents died, she moved in with her sister and her husband.
As a child, Sara worked as a housekeeper and did not have time for schooling. She later shared that she only had 3 months of formal education when she attended Sunday school.
She was only 14 when she married Moses McWilliams. She didn’t do it because she loved him. The truth was that her sister’s husband was a very violent man, and marriage was the only way for Sara to escape from that family. Four years later, Sarah and Moses had a daughter, Alleluia. Two years later, Sarah’s husband dies. So Sara became a single mother and a widow at the age of twenty.
In 1888, Sara moved to St. Louis. Her brothers worked there as barbers. She started working in a laundromat and as a cook to pay for her daughter’s education in a public school. Sara earned about $1.50 a day.
Like all the workers in the laundry, Sara got sick from chemicals: skin disease, lack of water, and heating in the house made Sara almost lose her hair. Thanks to her brothers, she learned the basics of hair care. A little later, Sara learns about the Eni Malon series of hair products, and later meets Eni in person. He starts selling her products on the street.
Still working for Malon, Sara, now at the age of 37, moves to Denver with her daughter and begins to think about her own line of cosmetics for African-American women. After many experiments, she succeeds. He starts building his own business.
In 1906, Sara married Charles J. Walker and later became famous under his surname. Charles becomes her business partner: He did advertising and helped his wife with promotion.
Sara went door to door trying to sell her products, but also to teach women how to care for and style their hair.
In the same year, Sara decided to expand her business, so she and her husband traveled around South and East America. Her daughter had grown up and graduated from school, so she helped her mother with all the shipments from Denver.
Two years later, Sara moves to Pittsburgh. The family opens a beauty salon, but also a school that trains people to know everything about hair care so that they can apply Sara’s products.
In 1910, Sara moved to Indianapolis, where she opened the headquarters of the company Madam C. J. Walker.
He builds a factory with a laboratory, a hair salon, and a beauty school where he teaches his sales agents. By 1917, Mrs. Walker employed about 20,000 women. Her agents earned from 5 to 15 dollars a day. Sara wanted African-American women to be financially independent, so she encouraged women to open their own businesses and taught them how to handle money.
The richer she became, the more time she spent on charities and giving. She gave lectures, fought against social injustice, and donated money to funds. Before she died, she donated more than 100,000 dollars to the poor and various organizations and social institutions.
In her will, she stated that 2/3 of her future profits should be given to charity.
She died at the age of 51. She was considered the richest African-American woman. When she died, her fortune was thought to be between $500,000 and $1 million. During her lifetime, Sara was not a millionaire, only 2 years after her death, her wealth increased, but while she was alive, she hoped that she would be. And not because she needed the money, but because she wanted to do more good deeds.

In 2019 I divorced my wife, and we agreed to care for the kids together. I moved out, and she moved back to Oklahoma.
Every time I visit them, she will invite me to the bedroom, and we will make love. She will cook and be very nice to me. She is not dating anybody, but I already have a girlfriend.


I recently find myself visiting them three times a month instead of the three times a year we planned for before.


Last week I asked her to marry me again, and she said no. That got me so mad and pissed off.
What’s all the cooking and being nice all about?

“So my husband demanded that I take permission from him before anyone from my family visits our home.
In which i accepted. For the past four years I’ve made sure that i respect my husband’s decision, non of my relative have visited.
My mom alerted me that she will visit us this month end and I kept asking her when, so I could at discuss it with my husband, but she didn’t say anything about the particular day nor time that she will come

Three days ago, she came from the village unannounced, This is actually her first time of visiting my house since I got married, Even though she wanted to come on many occasions, but because of how hubby regards my family as low life, I told her to forget about coming that I’m fine, in order to avoid issues, Now she’s come unannounced. Am not happy. For  3 days now, hubby has not said a word to either my mom or myself and has started avoiding me, I’ve been begging my husband, even told my mom to go back to the village until the atmosphere is calm Besides, i don’t have a new born baby in the house, so what’s the point of having her around now especially where she’s not wanted. Hubby has refused my food, he now sleeps in the guest room and goes out very early.

My home is about to be shattered because of my mom. I have told her I will never forgive her if anything happens to my marriage. I am comfortable the way I am. I take my mother-in-law as my mother, so if my mom doesn’t visit, it’s no big deal, my mother inlaw comes often and I have no issue with that. I believe i van always visit mom in the village like I’ve been doing but she’s inconsiderate about this, she wants to enjoy a new environment not minding if she’s welcome or not.

Since yesterday I stopped talking to her, just so she can leave. I don’t want to be harsh with her, please, how do I persuade her to leave pls, I don’t want any problem in my house..

Please advise me on this.. what should i do about this situation my marriage is still young..”
