    There’s this story that goes something like this.... There was this man in a far away land. In this land, they used to enjoy dog fights, just like in some parts of east Africa people enjoy bull-fights. Whenever there was a fight, the man would go in early and bet on one of the two dogs in the fight. Regardless of how big or small his choice of dog was, whichever dog he bet on always won.  Several... [Read More]

    Let’s talk about “Listening”. This week I had the opportunity to speak to a group of over 150 youths about Using The Power Of Networking To Grow Your Business.  As I was preparing my presentation, the one thing that stood out so clearly is that networking is all about “listening to what is not being said”. This reminded me of a story I’d like to share with you today. A young guy from North... [Read More]

    Last week I introduced the issue of self-esteem and self-confidence right here on this column, something I continued talking about for the rest of the week on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. The truth is, there is no easy way of confronting self-esteem issues except facing them head-on. It is something one has to work on until they are able to overcome it. Just like you don't except to do... [Read More]

    Last week I had an encounter I had not expected or even imagined happening. It was an encounter that left me incapacitated for the whole week and actually, even as I write this article, I’m still feeling the effects of that encounter. Wait, I think the encounter must have happened a few weeks before last week, but it is only the effects of the encounter that were manifested this last week.... [Read More]

    We all know that women are very good at multi-tasking, something men are not very gifted in unless it involves the remote control and food – no offense men. A woman could be in the sitting room breastfeeding the baby, at the same time sewing a button on her child’s shirt, while watching her favorite soap on Television, and talking to you on phone but is still capable of hearing the conversation...

    Happy New Year! Yes, I know what you are thinking; that I probably had too much to drink this weekend and had all the dates in my mind messed up. No ladies and gentlemen. It’s true I did drink a lot this weekend, just like any other day anyway, but the strongest drink I indulge in is coffee, and my favorite is a lot of water. And yes I do know today is 3rd July 2016. I said Happy New Year and I... [Read More]

    It’s funny how some things never make sense when you first read them until something happens that triggers a memory and alas, suddenly what didn’t make sense before now does. Joyce Meyer, one of my favorite televangelists, in her book “Battlefield of the mind” said this, “Our past may explain why we're suffering but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage.” The first time I read this...

    Let’s face it, no matter who you are, all what you do, every so often you will have some days in your life when thoughts of self-doubt and insecurity attack you like a swarm of bees. This could be due to certain things happening in your life at that particular moment such as multiple failures in projects you are handling, a bad relationship, stagnated business,etc. Well, we are not super-beings (...

    Like Lucas Jonkman said, fight your fears and you’ll be in battle forever but face your fears and you’ll be free forever. In other words, if you resist your fears, they will keep persisting, until the day you choose to face them and overcome them. For instance, if you are aquaphobic, the only way to overcome that fear is by taking the step towards facing your tormentor i.e. water, especially big... [Read More]
