About Me

Hola! My name is Bolanle! Lawyer, Writer, and Writing Coach dedicated to demonstrating that your ideas are worth more than “something,” and ready to assist you in bringing them to life to transform others in ways you never imagined.

What If You Knew That:

1. Time and resources are not your enemies if you want to live a meaningful life.

2. You have a story that has the potential to change people’s lives.

3. You don’t have to be born with creative abilities to have an impact. If you stay focused on your goal, you can accomplish anything.

4. All you need is someone to show you how or to remind you every now and then.

To Have An Impact On People's Lives, You Must Know Who You Are!

I’m rarely in doubt about who I am. It’s not that I’ve never made a mistake; I just don’t know how to have regrets. In my opinion, a mistake is only a mistake if you don’t learn from it. I believe that one of the factors that contributed to my self-assurance, awareness, and confidence is that I am the last child of my parents (who were too tired to watch my every move) and the only girl among four older siblings who were careful not to interfere with my life too much. Apart from pointing me in the right direction as much as they could, they let their little sister be her person.

Nonetheless, I struggled for a long time to find a career path and a hobby (a multipotentialite’s struggle). Should I refer to myself as this or that? How should I position myself? I hope I’m not squandering my time. I’m done fighting. I’m certain of three things: my life is in God’s hands, I will never get involved in matters bigger than myself, and I will continue to indulge my curiosity about the world, how it should work, and my fellow humans as much as possible. I will impact and will assist others in doing the same. Perhaps this is why I fell in love with reading (which inspired me to write) and studied law (a course that caused me to read a lot!). If you feel the same way, let’s work together!

Interesting Facts About Me!

I’m not sure if these are “fun” things, but here goes:

1. I appear solemn, but once you get to know me, I’m a lot of fun.

2. I enjoy watching YouTube videos about unusual topics such as the world’s scariest bridges.

3. At parties, you’ll find me standing out from the crowd. (Yeah! Can we please go home already?)

4. When having a serious conversation, my brain randomly associates songs with outstanding words

5. Once underestimated “marriage weight gain,” and I will never do so again!

6. My friends think I’m odd.

7. I prefer to say “hola” instead of “hello,” and it appears that my husband has caught the bug as well!

8. I enjoy participating in a variety of creative activities (as if you couldn’t tell).

9. I am a slacker when it comes to dressing, but I can also dress to kill.

10. I enjoy teaching.

About Bolanle Bodunrin

A.k.a Professional Bio…

Omobolanle Bodunrin is also known as Omobolanle Abiola. From here, things become more straightforward. She is a Supreme Court of Nigeria Barrister and Solicitor who took an inspired detour into writing. It all began after she graduated from law school and during her Master of Laws programme at the University of Lagos when she decided to hone her writing skills to pursue her goal of making a difference in people’s lives. So she resumed her writing. So she began writing again.

Was she surprised at how much she needed to learn about the craft? She had written numerous devotional articles in her undergraduate days and didn’t think much of her love for or skill in stringing words together to make sense and evoke change in her readers. She had also either written for her own eyes only (journaling) or ghostwritten. For four years, she has honed her skills in a variety of areas, including ebooks, blog posts, articles, stories, social media writing, scripts, educational materials, bios, newsletters, and devotional articles for both individuals and businesses.

“Do you still practice law?” concerned people have asked her on occasion; after all, studying law is not for the faint of heart. She certainly does! She drafts and interprets contracts as a freelance solicitor. In the long run, she hopes to specialize in the legal side of the creative industry. You know, things like interpreting music contracts and managing artists. This allows her to combine her creative interests with her legal training. She considers herself fortunate to be able to pursue a passion and work in a noble profession such as law. Although it took her some time and a lot of tears to figure out her passions and pursuits (a multipotentialite curse), she’s grateful for the abilities her inquisitive nature has given her.
