Do not throw good money at a bad idea!

In this harsh economic times, many people opt to start their own businesses. However, not all the businesses live to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Not that starting a business is a mysterious process but lack of strategy; or availability of poor strategies. Some people are in a rush to implement their ideas without doing a thorough baseline analysis on their ideas.

Motivational musings

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400.

It carries over no balance from day to day.

Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to used during the day.

What would you do?

Draw out every cent, of course?

Each of us has such a bank, it’s name is time.

Every morning, it credits you 86,400 seconds.

Every night it writes off at a lost, whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose.

It carries over no balance.

It allows no over draft.

Each day it opens a new account for you.

Each night it burns the remains of the day.

If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.

There is no drawing against “tomorrow”.

You must live in the present on today’s deposits.

Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and health.

The clock is running.

Make the most of today.

Is Marital Rape Valid?

So today I stumbled upon the Sexual Offences Act among my many irrelevant reads. It then crossed my mind that no one has ever been prosecuted for spousal rape in  Kenya.  Marital rape or intimate partner violence refers to any unwanted intercourse or penetration (vaginal, anal, or oral) obtained by force, threat of force, or when the spouse is unable to consent. In Kenya, rape is a criminal offence punishable with prison sentence but there is no any legal protection from marital rape.

WHY I WILL NOT MARRY A POLITICIAN?

1. I will not be able to explain his death when he dies..God forbid!!! There deaths are usually sudden, followed by Viagra-Overdose theory, Cardiac-arrest theory, among others. Their deaths leave behind speculations that might even make me look not-good enough.

Nothing beats the humility of a broke bachelor…

I always enjoy watching a man grow. Grow from poverty to wealth. And I can testify. Nothing beats the humility of a broke bachelor. All the men in my life(reading this)are now guilty. Nooo!!It is the truth. A broke bachelor would gladly walk from CBD to Langata, even to Eastleigh. In their humble SQ ,they would take a mug of tea and mkate boflo. At the end of the day they will be happy.

IT WAS HIM

That evening was cold and wet. I boarded a matatu to Roysambu. Route 44. Having completed my exams, I was calm,composed and excited. Being a Friday,we had to party-hard. Even if it rained cats and dogs. Being a romantic freak, I had planned to surprise my soul mate. He was in the house. At Roysambu.

Things You Should Know Before You Date A Writer

SOO TRUE!

Thought Catalog

The whole professional writer thing is the only game I have. To an unsuspecting potential mate, I’m just like every other unremarkable femme with long dark hair and glasses in the bar. But when they ask me what I do with my time and I reply with, “I’m a writer, editor, poetess and photojournalist, who runs one of the top 100 LGBT blogs in the world,” they melt.

I understand wanting to f-ck a writer. Or date one. I can’t blame you. We’re alluring. We’re elusive. We’re romantic. We’re witty. But you really need to know what you’re getting into.

We have no money.

We writers pour our hearts into soul-sucking work for next to nothing. That means we’re always going Dutch.

We can’t help it.

I’ve always been a storyteller. As a child, I wrote plays for each holiday and made my sister act them out with me, each…
