[07/29/21]   30 LIFE LESSONS TO LEARN BEFORE AGE 30!!!!

Young people (13-30) please gather here. Stop sharing memes, stop scrolling, get your pen and paper and come and learn/unlearn.

1. The stretch between the age 20-30 is very critical. Use your twenties to build your life. Be careful of these three things, for they change your future forever: Friendships, S*xual Relationships, Habits.

2. Be a student. I don't mean inside a classroom. Keep asking. Keep knocking. Keep questioning. Read. Find a mentor. Be coachable. Question your philosophy of life often and find things to change. Keep learning. Keep unlearning. Keep a journal and jot down life lessons as you go.

3. Your friends at 20, may not be your friends at age 30. Your boyfriend at 15 may not be your life partner. Life has a funny way of shifting things around. People evolve. You will keep changing as you grow. Don't make permanent commitments with temporary people. Learn to let go. Allow life to make those adjustments.

4. Go to work to work. If you make friendships at work, great but more often than not the friendships at work may not last after you leave work. Don't attach to a company, organization, role. Explore and be okey with starting afresh.

5. If you can delay making babies, please do so.

6. Take opportunities. At 20, 25, 30 you don't have much to lose. If you fail, take the lesson. Don't be scared to try. The opinions don't matter.

7. Learn to communicate. In your own language, and in English. Write in full, try to construct proper sentences. Dot your Is and Cross your Ts. Learn and master your elevator pitch (who are you, what do you do, and what do you hope to achieve).

8. Learn how to effectively use social media. It's important to understand how social media works if you want to stay relevant in this age.

9. Learn to save. Save at least 30% of your income.

10. Become valuable. Learn a new skill. Learn a new language. Learn. The money will follow your value.

11. Speak up. There is no need to shrink. The only way to grow your confidence is to speak up.

12. Work hard and make no excuses. Life rewards those that work hard.

13. Don't blame the government, it's pointless.

14. Comparison is the thief of joy. Practise gratitude and be content with what you have.

15. Honor your parents. They have been around long enough to know what works.

16. Be careful of the following: Drugs, S*x and Alcohol. A lot of lives have been ruined by these.

17. Every person you meet can teach you something. Always take the lesson.

18. Your health is your wealth. Holistic wealth includes physical, social, mental, spiritual and emotional.

19. Time is money. Always try to be punctual. Don't procrastinate. Recognize time wasters in your life and make the necessary adjustments.

20. Never fear criticism. Never fear being judged. Never fear failure. The only thing you should be afraid of is REGRET!

21. Not all arguments are necessary. Save your energy!

22. Start investing as soon as you can. Learn about compound interest and use time to make it work for you. This talks to your finances and habits.

23. Learn to manage your emotions. It's important!

24. Love yourself. It starts within not without. All the other forms of love are sweet bonuses, that you get to enjoy, receive and reciprocate after you learn to love yourself.

25. The internet does not forget. Be careful of what you publish online.

26. Choose your life partner carefully. It's critical who you marry.

27. Believe in a higher power, something above yourself. You sleep better at night knowing that where your strength ends, there is someone above you who takes care of it all.

28. Love the journey more than the destination. Be present in each moment. Appreciate your current achievements while you work for more.

29. Travel the world. Meet new people. Explore. Don't limit your reality of life to your present. Life is big.

30. You create the life you want, it doesn't just happen. Plan. Set goals. Be intentional. What you do or not do today will affect how you eventually turn out in life.

Lastly LIVE!!! No I don't mean YOLO, just live! Find interesting things about life and enjoy them. Enjoy moments with your loved ones, enjoy the sound of birds chirping. Enjoy nature. Laugh. Dress up. Enjoy your cup of coffee. Life is to be lived. Put your phone down and enjoy life.

Building Africa As One Nation Through Entrepreneurship.

29/07/2021

Give God something to amplify

__"Mighty things from small beginnings grow"... [John Dryden]

My mother once took me to a marketplace to sell second-hand furniture. Noticing that I was embarrassed, she said to me: “You must stoop to conquer; get rid of your pride, and let’s do what puts food and school fees on the table. When you have those fancy qualifications, then you can look for jobs in newspapers!”

Give God something to amplify: Start something small, and start today!

Unless you have the humility to start small, and forget about your degrees [other than the knowledge they give you], you will not do the things that build capital. Women like my mother worked the markets, saved every penny, and built themselves up until they sent people like me to study overseas. That is where you should draw your inspiration, and not on the hope of someone coming to save us, by whatever title.

If you wait for someone to create the “right environment, facilities, good policies…” you might be waiting a very, very long time.

I coined the phrase: “As entrepreneurs we fight to build our businesses and build our lives, in the conditions, not against the conditions we happen to find ourselves in.”

Once you get into the mindset that governments or donors must do something to make the conditions better, then you are paralyzed from taking any steps to solve problems.

Everything is also relative; someone in South Africa thinks the condition are terrible, but someone in Liberia would say what amazing opportunities they have!

If I start comparing conditions of America with conditions in Africa, all I will manage to do is organize a “self pity party”! And by evening, some of you will be planning to cross the Sahara Desert!

I believe that God allowed me to tackle some of the worst obstacles, so that I can one day say to you: “You can start and prosper even in the worst conditions. Even without a cent of capital to your name, you can start.”

So how to get started solving any problem [as an entrepreneur]?

#1. You need to actually understand the problem. Being able to see a problem, and even commenting about it, is not the level of understanding necessary to emerge with an entrepreneurial solution:

You read, you study, you look at what others have done, or are already doing, to try to solve it.

__Africa is so big, the likelihood that someone else out of 1,3bn people is also looking at it, is very high! That's okay. #Imagining solutions is one thing [and a good start] then you must take the next step of course, with the 3Ps in mind.

#2. Understand the solutions that are already being tried by others. See if you yourself can contribute to the SolutionThink!

#3. Start Small: Practical people are always those looking for a way to start small on a big problem! Even if you believe that God will use you to solve a big problem [as I do], then you will know from scripture that He likes you to pitch up with something in your hand, like the little boy with the fishes and bread that fed 5,000!

Now some of you have asked me here recently if I think schools should add "entrepreneurship" to the classroom curriculum as early as grade school. Why not? Ideally, of course, the answer is yes, but the sad fact is: there's already a shortage of science and maths teachers [and many other subjects, too]. Where would national education departments find enough excellent entrepreneurship teachers? It's food for thought and worth considering, but...

Why not first start at home? Without changing a school curriculum, introducing a #SolutionSeeking mindset can start very young. If you're a parent or teacher, for example: Talk to your kids [at whatever age] like my mom talked to me at that marketplace.

All of you here know what an #EntrepreneurIt mindset is by now. Even as our communities and nations struggle deeply to put this pandemic behind us, please urge your kids, BOTH boys and girl children, to look through to the other side of problems, to #Imagine solutions [even as children!] and never be too proud or too fearful to start very small right where they are, even while they may already be riding big unicorns in their dreams.

Did you know?
A personalized T-shirt is great for a marketing campaign?
It allows you to repeatedly market your product. If you think about it, people tend to repeat clothes, and that is the reason why a lot of companies incorporate their logo and names on t-shirts. Having your own t-shirts can also help build your company’s reputation.

Another good reason why your company should have its own shirt is because it helps in the company’s promotion. Basically, the employees and customers that wear your shirt are walking billboards. They help on your company’s image and help your company stand out.

Aside from that, this is also a cheap way of promoting your company. It is a small investment that has long lasting effects. Your own custom shirts will also allow you to personally connect with customers. Therefore, investing on shirts is a good idea.

COVID-19 IN CHURCH
🌚
A man went to Church on Sunday and gave testimony that he was infected with CORONAVIRUS and that miraculously God had healed him. When he finished, he tried to give the microphone to the second man
who was waiting to give his own testimony, but the man refused to take it.

Second man: I have no testimony. Give it to pastor.
So the man tried to give microphone to pastor.

Pastor: I'm not in charge of testimonies so give it to senior pastor.
So the man went to senior pastor.

Senior pastor: Brother in Christ, the mic is yours. It's a gift from the church for your marvelous testimony. Please take it home.😂😂😂

[09/06/13]   How to Save Your Laptop from Dying Because of a Liquid
Ever got your pop accidentally spilled on your laptop and your mom won't buy you another one? Made you get a job till you got the money? Ever got water accidentally spilled on your laptop even though you're very careful with it, and lost all your precious files? Did your kids ever spill a drink on your laptop, and you also lost all your files? Well, this is a way to save it! But, you have to be very quick, and instantly do it.
Steps
1. 1
When the liquid is spilled on the laptop, instantly turn it off by holding down the start button until the screen goes black.
2. 2
Keep the laptop's screen open, and turn it upside down, so the keyboard is facing downward.
3. 3
Dry off any liquid that comes out using a tissue or a towel off the keyboard.
4. 4
Turn on a hair dryer on high, but keep the temperature as low as you can, and then blow-dry the keyboard while its still upside down.
5. 5
Dry off the laptop from behind, the keyboard still facing down.
6. 6
Once you're sure your laptop is liquid-free, cross your fingers and turn it on.

[08/27/13]   How to Recover Data from the Hard Drive of a Dead Laptop

When a computers dies due to a software failure rather than a hardware problem, its files remain inaccessible but intact on the hard drive. To recover data from the hard drive of a dead Windows, Mac, or Linux notebook, follow one of the methods below.

Steps
1 Turn Your Old Hard Drive into an External Hard Drive (Windows, Mac, Linux)
1. 1
Get a hard drive disk enclosure. This is an external system into which you can place a computer’s hard drive in order to run it on another computer via a USB port; essentially, the enclosure will turn your laptop’s hard drive into an external hard drive. Different computers use different hard drive models, so be sure to check your dead laptop’s specifications before making this purchase. Ex. If your laptop has a 2.5 SATA drive, you will need a 2.5 SATA USB enclosure.
o Unless you have a SATA drive, be sure to buy a laptop-sized disk enclosure; only SATA-ready enclosures can accommodate both desktop and laptop hard drives.
o Note that disk enclosures aren’t commonly found in big-box stores and are usually purchased online.
2. 2
Borrow a working computer that is compatible with your old one. If you had a Windows, use another Windows; if you had a Mac, use another Mac; etc. Make sure it has enough space to accommodate the files you want to recover from the dead laptop; alternatively, you can hook a second external hard drive up to the working computer and simply use the computer as a transfer system for the files.
o A Linux computer will be able to read files off of a Windows computer (but not the other way around); unless you understand both systems, however, it is best to use a Windows computer to recover a Windows hard drive.
3. 3
Mac users can insert a Windows hard drive into their computer and be able to read (not write) the contents of their hard drive if they did not install a seperate driver, for example NTFS-3G or Paragon NTFS. Take caution, though, and only use Disk Utility during the process to "mount" the hard drive. Any other action you make on Disk Utility may remove contents.
4. 4
Remove the hard drive from the dead laptop. Turn off the laptop, unplug it, and remove the battery. Turn it over and you’ll see that various sections of the laptop base can be unscrewed and removed seperately. Either look up your laptop model online to see exactly where the hard drive sits or simply look for the most likely candidate: though it differs between laptops, a laptop hard drive is often similar in size and shape to a 3.5-inch floppy disk. Unscrew the hard drive cover and remove the hard drive. Some models will pop upwards, some will slide outwards, etc.
5. 5
Remove the disk enclosure’s connector plate and insert it into the hard drive interface. Look for connector pins at one end of the drive to see where to make this connection.
o If you have an IDE hard drive, note that there is a detachable adaptor sitting over the interface. Simply pull this adaptor off so that the drive will properly connect with the enclosure’s connector plate.
6. 6
Insert the hard drive into the enclosure. Screw it shut if necessary; read the enclosure manual for additional details.
7. 7
Connect the external hard drive to the working computer via a USB cable. Make sure the computer is turned on. Once the drive is connected, an icon should appear on your desktop (Mac) or a notification should pop up (Windows). The computer might also open the drive for you automatically.
o If Windows doesn’t automatically prompt you about the new external storage unit, simply open it manually by going to My Computer and looking for the new drive.
o If the hard drive isn’t recognized at first, try ejecting it and plugging it back in.
o If the hard drive is not readable, it’s likely that the hard drive itself (and not your computer’s software) failed. If this is the case, you will need professional assistance if you wish to continue the salvage. Be warned that this can be very expensive.
8. 8
Explore and salvage your old files. Transfer them to either the working computer or to a second external hard drive by copying and pasting, clicking and dragging, etc. If you have a lot of large files (ex. songs, movies), note that the transfer could take many hours.
9. 9
When you’re done, close the window to your hard drive. The good news is that the dead computer is still physically intact and will probably work fine if you reinstall your operating system.
10. 10
Right-click the USB icon and select Eject. You can now detach the old hard drive.

2 Plug Your Old Hard Drive into a Desktop Computer (Windows, Linux)
1. 1
Get a laptop hard drive adapter kit. This will allow you to plug your laptop’s hard drive directly into a compatible desktop computer. Different computers use different hard drive models, so be sure to check your dead laptop’s specifications before making this purchase. Ex. If your laptop has a 2.5 SATA drive, you will need a 2.5 SATA adapter.
2. 2
Borrow a working desktop computer that is compatible with your old one. If you had a Windows, use another Windows; if you had a Linux, use another Linux; etc. Make sure it has enough space to accommodate the files you want to recover from the dead laptop; alternatively, you can hook a second external hard drive up to the working computer and simply use the computer as a transfer system for the files.
o A Linux computer will be able to read files off of a Windows computer (but not the other way around); unless you understand both systems, however, it is best to use a Windows computer to recover a Windows hard drive.
3. 3
Remove the hard drive from the dead laptop. Turn off the laptop, unplug it, and remove the battery. Turn it over and you’ll see that various sections of the laptop base can be unscrewed and removed separately. Either look up your laptop model online to see exactly where the hard drive sits or simply look for the most likely candidate: though it differs between laptops, a laptop hard drive is often similar in size and shape to a 3.5-inch floppy disk. Unscrew the hard drive cover and remove the hard drive. Some models will pop upwards, some will slide outwards, etc.
o If your laptop has an IDE hard drive, note that there is a detachable adaptor sitting over the hard drive interface. Simply pull this adaptor off so that the interface is accessible later.
4. 4
Turn off your desktop computer, unplug it, and open the tower. You will use the adapter kit to plug the old hard drive directly into the motherboard.
5. 5
Connect the dead drive to the working computer using your drive adapter. How you do this will depend on your drive and adapter types, so use the instructions that came with the kit.
o If you have an IDE drive, configure it to “slave” mode before connecting it to the IDE ribbon. The configuration should be noted on the hard drive itself and will involve moving a plastic cap over a particular pin or set of pins (aka “jumpers”) on the hard drive interface. Configuring it to slave mode will keep your laptop hard drive from competing with the desktop’s “master” hard drive during bootup.
6. 6
Configure your desktop to recognize the new drive. Plug your desktop back in, power it on, and open BIOS. Go to Standard CMOS Settings or IDE Config, where you will find four settings involving master and slave settings. Change all four fields to auto-detection.
7. 7
Exit BIOS and reboot. You desktop should now automatically detect the new hardware.
8. 8
Open the new hard drive. If you’re using Windows, go to My Computer and look for the new hard drive. With Linux, the new drive will appear in the dev directory.
o If the hard drive is not readable, it’s likely that the hard drive itself (and not your computer’s software) failed. If this is the case, you will need professional assistance if you wish to continue the salvage. Be warned that this can be very expensive.
9. 9
Explore and salvage your old files. Transfer them to either the working computer or to the external hard drive by copying and pasting, clicking and dragging, etc. If you have a lot of large files (ex. songs, movies), note that the transfer could take many hours.
10. 10
Turn off and unplug the desktop to uninstall the hard drive (if desired). Since the hard drive is physically intact, it will probably work fine in the old laptop if you reinstall your operating system.

3 Access Your Old Files through Another Computer (Mac Only)
1. 1
Get a FireWire cable. Buy a new one for anywhere between $5 and $20 or borrow one from a friend.
2. 2
Borrow a working Mac. Make sure the Mac has enough space to accommodate the files you want to recover from the dead laptop; alternatively, you can hook an external hard drive up to the working Mac and simply use the Mac as a transfer system for the files.
3. 3
Connect the dead Mac to the working Mac using the FireWire cable. Make sure that the working Mac is turned off when you do this.
4. 4
As you power up the working Mac, press the T key until the FireWire icon appears. This starts the computer in “Target Mode,” meaning that the working Mac will give you access to the targeted computer’s master drive in addition to its own.
o If you use OS X 10.4: Turn on your computer normally, go to System Preferences > Startup Disk > Target Mode. Then, reboot your computer to start it in Target Mode.
5. 5
Find and open the dead computer’s hard drive on your Mac’s desktop. If the targeted drive does not appear on the desktop, the damage to your old computer is likely physical, meaning you will need professional assistance to finish the salvage. Be warned that this can be very expensive.
6. 6
Salvage your old files. Transfer them to either the working Mac or to the external hard drive by copying and pasting, clicking and dragging, etc. If you have a lot of large files (ex. songs, movies), note that the transfer could take many hours.
7. 7
When you’re done, close the window to your hard drive. The good news is that the dead computer is still physically intact and will probably work fine if you reinstall your operating system.
8. 8
Right-click the targeted drive and select Eject. You can now detach the dead computer.

It wasn’t hard, was it??? Though you might need a technician incase you feel the steps are disturbing and your data is not worth risking…. Thanks for learning something.
