How to STAY ALIVE in 2020

How many people do you know that have passed on in 2020?

2020 is the year where I have counted up to 10 people that have died; some were professional colleagues, some were people that I admire, and some were really close to home. The number of the death toll keeps rising and it’s depressing.


Truthfully, not all of them were directly linked to the Corona virus but if I am asked to pick one common thing in all of these deaths, I’ll still say it’s the virus.

Whilst some of us have been safe from getting the virus, the side effects of the virus have not eluded us. Whether it is from businesses being shut down for so long, or the unlikely recovery of some businesses, the loss of incomes and jobs, the hike in prices of essentials, COVID-19 found a way to affect us all.

Did He predict the Pandemic???

The predictions of the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on businesses and employees described here are apt!

What happens to entire classes of people who made average financial plans when faced with extended periods of very difficult economic times or decades of extended unemployment?

Grant Cardone

Sounds familiar? So I thought.

Just a few months into the Pandemic and most businesses and employees are really struggling; in fact some businesses are yet to get the resume operations.

Average sure doesn’t cut it.

What You can learn from my long run this morning.

I run.

It had been a while since my last real long run.

At the beginning of the lock-down, running was more fun because I had lots of company from my family and other neighbors who either wanted to keep fit or just needed to get out of the house. I was in the last 3 weeks of my running program (even after repeating three different weeks to enable me run easier) It was fun, challenging and humbling. You know when you get back home and you stretch your feet up all day not because you worked hard for it but because the run whooped you!

DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?

Sometimes I feel that we meet certain people at the exact time we are prepared to receive them, same with the books we read. This book could not have been timelier for me especially with the privilege of starting a new company.

The goal is not to do business with everybody that needs what you have, the goal is to do business with everyone that believes what you believe.

Why you should be Angry at losing your job to Covid-19

If you’ve already lost your job; I’m sorry to hear that.

This is one of the hard hitting effects of the pandemic on businesses as a whole. Most businesses are either completely shut or operating only skeletal with social distancing in effect and with clients at home, there is not much income coming in. Employers are saddled with the hard decision of having to let staff go or adopt massive pay cuts to manage the situation.

As an employee who’s just been let go, you will be fraught with different kinds of emotions and this is to guide you on how to handle the situation so it doesn’t escalate.

What does Easter mean to you?

As we celebrate Easter especially in the most unusual of ways (indoors) due to the COVID-19 pandemic, It is a good time to reflect on why the celebration albeit a quiet one is important.

Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death some 2000 years ago. Jesus Christ is the core of Christianity – as the name implies. We celebrate his resurrection for different reasons; today I share my own personal reason(s) for identifying with Christ and celebrating Easter.

Women: made for more than the ‘other’ room (2019)

Still in the celebratory atmosphere of our 4th anniversary, meet our MOST SIGNIFICANT POST … and it’s not because I am a lady. 🙂

First published: April 4th, 2017.

I came across this book when I was on maternity leave with my first child, wondering if the workplace would still need me when I get back or if it was worth it to leave my bundle of joy for the hustle of work. It’s been 4 years since then and I am still growing strong in the workplace which may not have happened if I hadn’t read this book. It is for women who want to make impact and men who want to support that vision – Tosan A.
