Lessons Learned from my Father, Robert Eugene Thompson


by Akilah “Kiki” Monifa

Stockholm, Sweden–My father, Robert Eugene Thompson is 84 years old.  I am most definitely a “daddy’s girl” always have been.

That’s not my dad, but that is his company.  He is Bob.  My dad had a full-time job at IBM and he retired at 55 years old.  He always had a side-hustle and sometimes several side hustles.

He still works in his tax business during tax season.  He taught me to always have a side hustle.

Thanks Bob, aka Papa can you hear me know (sung in my Barbra Streisand voice from Yentl)

Peace, love, gratitude, compassion, and blessings.
