Under Construction

Keni last shared their writing Pro Tip
I came across a sales tip a few minutes ago. I think it is a big one. 

Sell the problem - Not the solution

I remember investing a lot of time in the features of my products. Creating a lot of visuals for the solution. I barely spent any time talking...

Retrospective
Coincidences

Having a clear goal opened my eyes to opportunities everywhere.
I remember when I first set out to do somethings for Oct 3rd. One of them was writing related. Everyday since making my Oct 3rd goal, I would stare at the list of things I planned. Beyond writing daily, I...

Retrospective
The Attention Game

I read a few interesting articles talking about the 'attention game'. 
Be it in writing, social media, tv shows, news, internet. Getting people's eye balls for more than a few seconds is everything. 

I think over the years, the business side of society has gotten better at getting our attention...

The Dream Team - Part 2

Just a few days ago, I shared the fact that I want to build a team to proceed with my business venture. The idea wasn't new. I just never executed it properly. This time I intend to.

Ideas
The Dream Team

As I think about what type of team I want to build, I wanted to share my ideas. And I love getting any feedback.

Retrospective
Anti bucket list

Anti bucket list - What are the things you will never do again?

I saw this somewhere on social media. I quickly wrote it down. I refused to read the comments so I am not biased. I want to have my own unadulterated list. 

It is an interesting twist to a...

Delay

The Medium Writing Challenge team made an announcement about the writing competition from last month. 

Apparently they are overwhelmed with the volume of submissions for the challenge. Over 10,000 I believe is what people have mentioned. 

I feel for the judges that signed up for this competition. It is just...

Mastery
Team

I am starting to like the idea of having a team rather than work on my own for my business ventures. It is not only exhausting and difficult to get things done, but I need diverse ideas. 

I just read a book summary on blinkist about the power of crowds....

Mustafa - an update

I found out yesterday that Mustafa passed away recently. I wrote about Mustafa on this platform. For some reason that post resonated with a lot of people. Maybe it was easy to write about this wonderful person I met over 15 years ago. 

A part of me was afraid to...

If money was no issue, what would you be working on today?

PLUS:

1. Work in a social innovation company that helps local people in Africa to get expertise in tech, healthcare and project management. 
2. Investing in real estate. Commercial property with multiple units. 
3 . I would...

Mastery
Design

It was in 2019 that I considered the idea of learning about design. Thanks to Scott Adams and his view on learning the basics of a few subjects. I remember being surprised at seeing design as a skill. It had never occurred to me before.

But the more I get...
