7 Reasons Why You Must Love Touting Personal Development 

7 Reasons Why You Must Love Touting

My excuse for using public transport is that my car got an engine knock some time back. That was a traumatic moment for me that I do not want to think about. I just would like the whole episode to be wiped out of my mind. So this morning, as I knew my schedule was not that tight, I found a matatu (Public Service Vehicle) that was plying my route. It was virtually empty. Needing some time to just relax and clear off my mind, I decided to study the attitudes…

100%: Getting Ahead Through Sheer Faithfullness

“Now the time has come for me to die. My life is like a drink offering being poured out on the altar. I have fought well. I have finished the race, and I have been faithful”. —Paul the Apostle (2Tim 4:6-7) I come back home daily…or as it is with everyone, the sun sets down on me daily. What did I leave to chance today? Looking critically at how I have shown up all day, is this my very best? Did I hold back on anything? Are my promises fulfilled?…

Less is More in 2017

Getting on a 50-Year Success Journey “The champion is an average athlete with laser like focus” —Bruce Lee They have all started. Nearly everywhere you turn, someone is talking about goals, goals and more goals. It is as if goals are the silver bullet to success. I beg to differ though. You see, before you get some goals, you need to have some “go”. Where are you going generally? Goals or Side Effects? A man who sets out to be a “millionaire” in my opinion misses the essence of life…

What Would You Do If You Were Not Afraid?

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work” ― Thomas A. Edison Failure is often painful, grueling and leaves you with an after taste feeling that makes you wonder why you should bother trying again. Most of us cannot like Edison endure 10,000 ways that won’t work. We are barely able to pick up ourselves up after rejection or embarrassment. Failing put simply is not meeting expectations. The problem is that everyone with a mind has expectations. Whether you like it or not you are failing…

How To Break Your Personal Prison

How to overpower your mind-warden One of my resolutions this year was to do something that I would never expect myself to do. And I did it. And it was fun and quite interesting so I did again. I started questioned why I had decided before trying it, and it took down a path of question what else I had talked myself out off We are all familiar with the saying “never say never” but actually we say never all the time! I will never climb a mountain, I will…

WHY AN ENTREPRENEUR SHOULD BELONG TO A GROUP

It is said “If you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go together.” in the startup world, I look at it from another perspective; “if you want your startup to die sooner than predicted, run it alone. But if you want to build an empire to last generations, carry along others”. It’s super important that an entrepreneur belongs to a community of fellow entrepreneurs. It could be a SACCO, Investment Club or an Entrepreneurial club – as long as it has like-minded people….

How To Rewrite your Ending…

…and see opportunity when its logical to see failure Seated in a matatu (taxi-public transport van) for what seemed like the longest ride of my life, I decided to start reading a book on my phone. I was looking out thinking about the philosopher’s stone in The Alchemist, when I realized the young girl seated in front me was staring. She had a puzzled look on her face. So, I tilted the phone so that she’d see what I was doing. She immediately realized that I had noticed her interest…

Entrepreneurship: Are You Doing it Right?

One of the greatest rewards of what I do is that I get to talk to real people about real problems. Its one thing reading about challenges, its another hearing real life experiences of what it means to be an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is often portrayed as a grueling nightmare filled with many late nights and early mornings, so early that many entrepreneurs seem to be shoved into day light unwillingly. There is always so much to do and very little time to get to it. Burnout categorized by failures upon…

How Can Our Ideas Stay Relevant for Decades?

Two Battle Grounds in Business and Entrepreneurship Today, there is massive ‘warfare’ going on on two fronts in entrepreneurship and business. On one front, we have very many would be entrepreneurs and innovators pulling all stops to bring to the world the next Facebook, or Apple, or Twitter. There is no stop of Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists seeking to fund and be part of the next biggest ‘disruption’. Day in and out, the search continues.
