Yesterday, I was part of a marketplace convention held in Kampala, Uganda. This convention brings together Christians from different walks of life to discuss and share their experience in the marketplace.

Individuals who have been working for more than 10 years or so are given a platform to share their stories and experiences.

They narrate some of the hurdles encountered over the years, as well as the crucial lessons learnt in the process.

Some of the corporate companies represented included Renault motor company, Insurance Company of East Africa (ICEA), and Capital Markets Authority Uganda.

This convention is aimed at empowering christians with knowledge and skills required to prosper and leave a mark in whichever field they encounter.

It also offers an opportunity for people to interact, network, and make connections in the job market.

Mrs. Angela Kirabwire, Capital Markets Authority Uganda, took to the stage and put the theme of…

Proud, but never satisfied

How do you respond to the victories and failures that come along the journey of your life? Are you proud of your accomplishments? And, is it possible to be proud yet remain humble?…

Cristian Mihai

“Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.”

Serbian Proverb

Proud, but never satisfied. One of those phrases that sound so smart. One of those phrases that get thrown around so much that they have become cliche. It is easy to dismiss such a phrase as nonsense.

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.

The discussion of the day was quite interesting and it was centred around the use of money in economic growth and development on a micro (individual) level.

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.

One of the guest speakers was Mr. Amos Wekesa, founder, Great Lakes Safaris ltd who also happens to be one of my mentors. He emphasised the importance of saving and living not only within, but also below our means.

He argued…

Based on the data released by Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS), economic growth is projected to average about 6.3 percent over the next five years.

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
