I am personally loving this Series on Start-ups because besides sharing with you the little I got, it is rolling simultaneously with an idea that I am implementing. I feel that Start-ups require people of thick skins and undying spirits. It is not enough to just be in love with the notion of self-employment as this demands you to be ready to fight, fall and fight another day. I also feel we can access ourselves and check if deep…

Last month I focused on Life after Campus in a series that shed light on the first year after leaving school. We had a good time with 2018 graduates; most sent me messages with insightful comments which led to impactful conversations. If you haven’t gone through the series kindly go a page back and have a glance. 2019 is here! We should celebrate and welcome the year in style. We had a good time in December but we’ve got to be…

Before you fight me for making such an undiscerning remark, let’s set some ground rules. No biting. No poking eyes or pulling hair. The rule for not hitting below the belt cannot be overemphasized. So what am I saying? The elephant or the giant in the room after finishing university is a three letter word. JOB. But the words elephant and giant are just prefixed ants. Eleph-ANT and Gi-ANT. I just love this language from England. How you see…

How to survive life after campus is our Topic of The Month for December. At Ndeto Zetu, we appreciate that the first year after campus either breaks us or makes us. I have been doing a case study with my former college group on how they are doing. Cheers guys, you were the best. The group is giving me a wide array of results. The group of seventeen all undertook a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry. Only two are…

“It’s the end of the Kenyan year again! What a year 2018 has been! Yaay!  The Holidays are here too!” There is joy in the air with weddings, graduations, Christmas get-togethers, New Year’s Day and whatever on our calendars. It will all be fun and games until we hit fifth of January 2019. The dust will settle and whilst all are affected, the 2018 graduates will be worst hit. Ask me how and I will reply promptly for I have…

Welcome again, I hope you have read the previous article, the facts about life after campus, for it sets the base for this one. In this piece, I will walk you through ten tips to ace your post-campus year. By saying acing, I do not imply being super successful with an up and running company, a job, a house, a car or in a serious relationship. Those are worldly standards. I mean being in a better state of mind by…

Before I delve into the topic of the day, let me demystify the word purpose. It is simply a reason. One may pose a question: since you say a purpose is just a reason, then why is it so hard to live a successful yet purposeful life? And like any other coach, I would start answering by saying,” that is a good question.” Later on in today’s topic I will answer that question. I will discuss in depth four ways…

I should have kissed her When she looked me in the eye And winked slowly And wiped her pink lips With her tender tongue I should have kissed her When she whispered She did not know What she felt for me And ran short of words I should have kissed her When the path was deserted The night was young And the moon was full They called it a romantic night I should have kissed her When…

I wrote this article knowing in mind that writing it would span two crucial months for me; February and March. It feels like eating supper at 1157 hours and getting done at 0013 hours, and you are torn in between calling it late dinner or early breakfast. So February is a month of love. But we of colored skins know well that love is an illusion, so we called it a month of history. Black history. March is all about…

When denied in one area you are uplifted in another. Statements like this one are rendered senseless until one falls victim. The year was two thousand four; the heavens had smiled on planet earth and accorded it a gift. The unique thing about this rare gifting is that it never came in with the deliveries nor was it wrapped in glittering paper. The gift was a boy, born in the harshest of conditions brought up in a brutal environment. Like…
