Living within your means for a better tomorrow.


Today, I was priviledged to attend a conference with the theme Power, Sex, and Money, the emphasis being on Money.

Majority, if not all of the people in attendance were quite youthful, with some of them being university students and others recently starting out in their careers.

Very importantly though, it also encompassed how to make clean money that will last for years to come, in the process creating a lasting legacy, accompanied by progressive and sustainable micro economic development.

It takes Faith to be an exceptional entrepreneur

The first time I inadvertently explored the intersection between entrepreneurship and Faith was when I had to choose between my Christian-biblical principles and losing a business opportunity. I was left in a dilemma, one that am yet to fully comprehend. Anyway, before I reduce Christianity to a series of start-up buzzwords, let me take a… Continue reading It takes Faith to be an exceptional entrepreneur

The cost of innovation

The paramount doctrine of the economic and technological euphoria of recent decades has been that everything depends on innovation. It was understood that as desirable, and even when necessary, that we should go on and on from one technological innovation to the next, which would cause the economy to "grow" and make everything better and… Continue reading The cost of innovation

Sharing God's Story

399I believe in God, the Creator. I believe in His promise of an age to come where everything is made right. Fixed. Repaired. Like new. No more tears. No more pain. No evil. No dangerous options in the list of choices we have. (Personally, I hope to be eternally singing and playing in the band, serving with beautiful worship, but I’ll be ok with just making a loud, joyful noise – since I have experience at that.)

jack-palance-just-one-thingTherefore, my purpose is to listen and be taught by experience about spiritual things, to Share God’s Story in my life with anyone who’ll sit still long enough, to love, encourage, and be of service and support to the people in my sphere of influence, and to practice and prepare to exist in that coming age, whether it be a somewhere-else heaven, or an earth made heaven-like. This world is a classroom where…

The Homerun: If you’re willing, then it’s possible.

The homerun obstacle race was scheduled for late last month and I was so looking forward to it. Unfortunately, a few days prior to the race I got sick and started second guessing my participation. This run was meant to demonstrate the challenges that refugees face while fleeing their home countries, usually in small families.… Continue reading The Homerun: If you’re willing, then it’s possible.

Dare to live today!

Putting things off is the biggest waste of life. It snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in fortune's control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What… Continue reading Dare to live today!
