His Word for Today – GOD HAS CHOSEN THE FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD TO SHAME THE WISE!

His Word for Today GOD HAS CHOSEN THE FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD TO SHAME THE WISE! Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. “For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence – 1 Corinthians 1 : 25 – 29 KJV From the foregoing we can see that God uses the foolish and weak things and people in…


5 Easy and Affordable Ways to Optimize Your Site via SEO

“SEO is all about the daily hustle. Build good links. Write content that people and search engines care about and love. Check your technical stuff (there’s a lot now). Engage people. Manage your communities. Build more links. Do this. Every. Damn. Day.” – Sean Si, CEO and founder of SEO Hacker SEO is a core necessity for operating online because it drives traffics, leads, sales, and more. The downside is that any SEO agency worth its salt can eat up a sizeable chunk of your business’ capital. And since all search engines value quality over quantity, any SEO deal that seems too good to be true is likely just that. While hiring a professional service is obviously the most fruitful way to approach SEO, there are ways to cut down on the costs. The only real way to do that is through active engagement in the SEO process; this will…


The Techniques and Benefits of Successful Digital Story-telling

How to tell story on a shoestring budget. A study by the Content Marketing Institute found that a massive 30 per cent of most business’ budgets go on content creation. Telling stories, whether digitally, or around the campfire, is central to the way humans interact with one another.  The most widely shared stories aren’t necessarily the cleverest, or those that have had the most money thrown at their production, but they’re the ones which elicit an emotional response. Great storytellers have known this for generations – consider the tales passed down from grandmother to granddaughter. They’re warning stories which include little girls getting eaten up by big bad wolves, or being trapped in a gingerbread house by a wicked witch. What matters is the most memorable stories are emotionally powerful – good stories can be told cheaply, or even for free, thanks in part to social media. 1. Use Instagram…


Do you know how to make money in the new economy? – by- Strive Masiyiwa

Do you know how to make money in the new economy? __It’s kid stuff! The other day a dear friend of ours dropped by our home in South Africa. Her 14-year old son was born about the same time as our youngest daughter, and they went to kindergarten together. I will call him “John” for the sake of this little story, which is otherwise all true. “John is quite an entrepreneur,” his mother began proudly. Well, naturally all mothers are proud of their kids, so why should she be any different? Anyway, she continued: “Sometimes he makes up to R5,000 building social media profiles, and selling them.” “He does what?!” I exclaimed. “Oh, that’s nothing, Strive. That’s just when he needs pocket money.” “Okay… What else does he do?” “He recently negotiated a deal for a certain type of toy from India, to supply customers in South Africa” “He what?!”…

Who would be on your “dream team”? __Always look for the “game changer” (Part 3) by Strive Masiyiwa

One of the ways you strengthen your business is to look for opportunities to partner with the best in your game. You’re never too big or too small to look for partners that will fit your needs. When you partner with the best, you learn to improve your business dramatically. In the best partnerships, they win, and you win, too. Finding a “game changer” for your business through partnerships is extremely important. This is an ongoing process for me. I’ve always looked for opportunities to partner with those who can help give me access to technology, business systems, intellectual property (IP), and general know-how for my people. Let me give you some examples: When I started Econet Wireless, I was approached by one of the largest telecoms companies in the world which wanted to buy a stake in my company. Sitting over dinner one evening, the Vice President of the…

The Power of Ideas by Richard Branson

So many aspiring entrepreneurs are held back, because they are waiting for a good idea to come to them. But in reality, there is no such thing as a bad idea. Any idea can be a great idea, if you think differently, dream big, and commit to seeing it realised. I was inspired by the video below, in which Shots of Awe creator Jason Silva highlights the power of ideas. Jason explains that ideas transform us, transport us, and make us question life as we know it: “Once the mind is stretched by a new idea, it will never return to its original position.” His message is clear, look at the world without boundaries, and anything is possible. Image from Virgin.com I met Jason on Necker Island during Necker MaiTai. To many the idea of combining a kitesurfing event with a business workshop might sound ludicrous, however founders of Mai…
