Monday Moments Ep 11 – The Best 7 of 2010!!

One of my favorite verses from the Christian Bible is one that says, “Be faithful in little things and you will be accorded Bigger things” or something along those lines. I believe in celebrating little success, no matter how small. If you have visited this blog more than 3 times, then this post is dedicated to you. I intend to go on the down low beginning today, as I prepare for what promises to be a great year for Intervangelist EA in 2011. Lots of ideas, too little time to execute them, but one step at a time and we will get there.

So ladies and gentlemen, here are my best Moments of 2010!! Continue reading ‘Monday Moments Ep 11 – The Best 7 of 2010!!’

Monday Moments Ep 10 – A Content Hungry People!

How have you been? Well I hope.

The majority of East Africans are middle to lower class income earners. I know; that’s an obvious fact. The greater part of their year is spent at their jobs, working hard for that pay increase, or just until they get that job that they actually want. The occasional day off is either spent with family, on a drinking spree or for the majority, cooped up on their sofa, tugging on a pillow so hard you’d think it has been trying to escape, watching re-runs of the same TV show since they have exhausted all the DVDs in the house, and are either too broke or too lazy to go out and get more.

Thank God for the likes of Tusker Project Fame and Churchill Live which provide that 45 minute reprieve from the usual routine, hence forming the highlight of many a people’s weeks! Continue reading ‘Monday Moments Ep 10 – A Content Hungry People!’

Monday Moments Ep 9 – Mobile, Mobile, Mobile!

I Love my job!! That’s not something I hear many people saying about their jobs (probably the reason why most of us revere Entrepreneurs like little gods). I believe that for someone to Love what they do, be it in employment or even if they own a business, three things must be; Challenge, Fulfillment, Growth. Without challenges to overcome, you will never get to experience the joy of fulfillment. With no fulfillment, growth eludes you like a shadow.

Last week I came into close contact with some very important people in the local mobile industry. Kiran from Interactive Marketing Services (one of the pioneers of mobile content and TV Game shows in Kenya), Susan from Cellulant (No. 1 in the 2008 Top 100 mid sized company awards), Mwaniki from Mocality.com (the mobile directory company that’s taking the local scene by storm) and of course Hon. Eng James Rege, the e-Mheshimiwa who I blogged about last week. Today’s Monday Moments is 95% Mobile just to warn you in advance 🙂 Continue reading ‘Monday Moments Ep 9 – Mobile, Mobile, Mobile!’

Monday Moments Ep 8 – The Zero BS Edition!

It’s a rule of thumb in the world of writing that you NEVER ever start off an article by discrediting yourself! The reader loses confidence in you, and your opinions end up being ‘moo’ points at best. I don’t care much for that rule, so here is a little disclaimer before we proceed; I’m no business guru. I’m no branding guru either. Like a little child, I observe the world around me with a lot of curiosity, and form opinions based on what I see. I’ve learned a lot of valuable lessons through this.

So when I read the story of a youthful Music student who created ‘the fastest growing tech company ever’ from the ground up, a lot of the things I have read in business books almost stopped making sense! Welcome to Monday Moments Ep 8. Continue reading ‘Monday Moments Ep 8 – The Zero BS Edition!’
