Steve Jobs is quoted as saying content is king in 1996. And true to his word, The future of marketing is story telling. Story telling rather what we wrap here as content creation is just as wide including but not limited to Videography, Photography, Writing, Blogging among others. It sums the entire creative world.

​Magazine Publishing Business: Week forty 2017


Benjamin Franklin helped write the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Yet Franklin’s own publication, General Magazine, folded after just six issues. Magazines are tough business.
In fact, 9 out of 10 new magazines fail, according to Cheryl Woodward, publishing business consultant and author ofStarting and Running a Successful Newsletter or Magazine. Such are the kinds of Statistics you flip through when you want to find out about magazines and the business there rein.

It got me to what a friend observed about magazines business in the local market:

“I’ve realised 8 out 10 Kenyan entrepreneurs ranging from age 22 to 30 want to start their own magazines covering topics ranging from Lifestyle, Fashion, Beauty, Business, Entrepreneurship etc. I personally think and i stand to be corrected the reason why this kind of sector/entrepreneurship is not growing, becoming sustainable, attracting valuable partners and investors…

Finance


Am passing time walking down the streets of Google hopeful that I will bump on some billboard that reads “Your financial woes stop here” Why? Coincidentally, the financial gods have been gloomy thanks to the “can we talk after Elections” rhetoric. But mostly because we had promised the BizHub Enthusiasts that this week we are putting together something on Finance in this week’s episode for them. Unfortunately, the speaker; some badass guy in finance shoots up a late hour reply that says he’s not available for this week’s episode. He pens off with a bucket of apologies. I can see him penning that from his desk one hand on chest. It’s so sincere.

For those of you new here, BizHub is that our weekly youth based Talent mentorship initiative by TWIC where we meet in some down town hotel and deliberate matters Business. So am left wondering what do…

POSITIVE THINKING

There’s this Narrative of when it comes to life there are three kinds of people. Those who watch things happen. Those who make things happen and those wonder what happened. On my way home (read upcountry) there’s a house on the hill. That place is half rocky, half hilly. It’s along Kisumu Kakamega Highway. That part of the escarpment looks like it’s good for nothing. But see someone braved the hills to carve an enticing home out of that geographics. A home that makes us passers_by stare in bewilderment and you the reader wonder “is that in Kenya?” That he did skillfully when all and sundry would complain about the hills and the rocks and the Meadows

The Best Self-Help Advice Ever

1. Be yourself
I once heard a monk say if you meditated nonstop for 20 years, the answer you would arrive at is “be yourself.” There is tremendous freedom in just being you. It’s better (and easier!) to be a first-rate version of yourself than a third-rate version of anyone else. How long can you fake it, anyway?
You’re like a snowflake. Just as no one else in the world has your face, no one has your unique gifts, strengths, or personality. Don’t be afraid to be seen.
2. You have nothing to prove
You don’t have to please everyone, entertain others, or compete (unless doing so makes you happy). You are enough, exactly as you are right now.
3. You can’t control anyone
Have you ever met someone who thought they were wrong about their choices? Neither have I. Some of our most mature…
