Introducing the Follow Your Money (FYM) Newsletter
Follow Your Money
This is Dulra! (Co)Founder & CEO of Dot. Welcome to the Follow Your Money (FYM) Newsletter- designed to help you take control of your financial life as a student, one newsletter at a time. ❤️
This is the very beginning of the newsletter and to be honest, this is my first time doing this and I wasn’t sure how to get started. 🙈
I know what you’re thinking- ‘Oh this is another of those newsletters.’ 💁🏾♂️
That’s fair enough. I also receive a lot of those and let's be real, we're all drowning in emails these days.
🙅🏾♂️But no this is different. This newsletter is a gateway to equipping you for your financial present and future because I believe building healthy financial habits will help transform the future of the African continent. If you share the same dream, lessgoo! 🚀🚀🚀
🤌🏾WHAT’S THE FYH NEWSLETTER?
Every week, we’ll explore:
Financial News and Trends in Africa.
Feature Interviews with Amazing Guests.
Quote of the Week (QOTW).
Updates on Dot’s Product Launch, and
A Weekly Dose of Content Recommendation.
This might change as we move forward but let’s get started with this. 💪🏾
🎯This week, we’ll be exploring Dot through the ‘WHY’, ‘HOW’, and ‘WHAT’ lenses. Many have reached out to me asking not only for the secret sauce but also the future of Dot. Well, say no more. The wait is over. Welcome to the Aurora!
#ISSUE 1: AURORA
WHY—are we building Dot?
Did you know that there are more African immigrants within Africa than outside of the African continent? Yes, Africa has more than 40M immigrants– 54% of these African immigrants live within Africa.
This is why Dot is focused on helping African immigrants digitize their cash, starting with the future of Africa--students.
HOW—are we building?
📌 To ideate is human, to execute is being. Legend has it that only the ones who are crazy enough to EXECUTE are the ones who truly change the world. Over the past couple of months, we’ve been building a product users need enough to pay for it and love enough to tell others about it.
We’ve made incredible partnerships, joined amazing programs, as well as raised venture capital. The following Issues will include detailed updates on our product launch. You don’t want to miss it. 😉
📌 WHAT—we’ve been building?
A cash-to-cashless experience.
But that’s not all. Keep your eyes peeled, we've got something special coming your way!😉🤭
✨Next week, we’ll unleash the beast, unravel the magna carta, introduce you to the secret sauce to help you battle-proof your money mindset, future-proof your financial wizardry, and turn you into a young warlock with financial independence.
Okayyy. Just kidding. Dulra, focus! 🙃
