The DIGITAL money mistake.

Online easy

One would say technology defines us. And going by the depth of the technological innovations within the Fintech world, one needs no more proof. At a global scale we have made tremendous strides, so far not so bad. As a country in particular we are not left behind on the innovation wheel. Of great concern today is the banking space and in particular the advent of digital money lending. To cut the long story short, let’s get to hear what one voice says on:

Intro

It’s been 26 years of doing life. Writing has always fascinated. Back in the day at school I would win in essay writing competitions with the key highlight being the National Kenya Human Rights Essay Competition on governance as I wrapped up my O-Levels where I ranked third nationally. That kind of gave me an appetite that gravitated me towards liking writing with passion unaware of what the future held. At this point in time I reached a strong resolve to do things differently. Like how about I don’t go for career but instead…

*Question*: Suppose I have a business proposal or idea that I believe *can yield over a hundred million dollars per annum ($100m)* if well established

But at the moment still at ground zero because of funding – and currently seeking a funding of about *$12m from a venture capital,* how many percent shares can I give up for that amount?

What does it take?

Are your children ready to inherit you?

The only son of a certain wealthy man wanted to inherit the father’s business.

The old man gave him one condition to fulfill: “Earn 10,000 dollars, show me the money and my multi-million dollar business is yours”

Not long after, his son brought the money he had collected from his mother claiming he worked for it. His father who was relaxing by an oven collected the cash and threw it into the oven. The two watched the oven until the whole cash was burnt to ashes.
He told his son to simply go on and work for the money and bring it to him. The mother again gave him another $10, 000 and told the boy to wait for some time, so he could disguise and look worn out before seeing his father.

When he eventually met his father…

Leadership, Leaders and Governance

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The Leadership dialogue

“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.”
