Presenting Ubuntu Stoicism – meditating stoically with African Proverbs

I was stressed. My heart was strained. I don’t know if I could have got a heart attack. But I imaged such stresses could do such. I felt it.

My strain was caused by, well, a disagreement with a work colleague. They could have been wrong. I could have been wrong. What strained me more was that the situation might have forced me to go the court route.

Anyway, I was stressed by that and everything.

Everything always piles up.

Celebrity Business Class: DJ Zinhle Becomes Equity Owner In French Wine Brand Boulevard Nectar Rosé (Analysis Per the Convenience Metrical Interest Method)

DJ Zinhle – Ntombezinhle Jiyane – last week announced that she has become an equity owner in French-owned Boulevard wine, and that she is the new CEO.

I had never heard of Boulevard before this announcement – well because I don’t know a lot of things.

Certainly, I have never heard of a local South African celebrity acquiring ownership shares in an international company – or even a local one and or on that scale.

I remember in 2018 she was the South African celebrity partner for Jamie Foxx’s sunglass brand, Privé Revaux. Beautiful sunglasses they make.

Why the Next Billionaires Should Come From Townships: Township Biz Adjacent Book

 [This article’s points are taken from my fifth book Township Biz Adjacent (newly updated) and it is available in all bookstores nationwide.]

I call townships an ECONOMIC CYCLONE.


The population keeps growing and will keep growing.

This means money-making.

Because they will keep needing basic goods and particularly FMCG products (Fast Moving Consumer Goods), e.g. nappies, bread, electricity, airtime, clothes, entertainment.

Corporate South Africa has been making billions in townships forever.

‘Soweto has a R34 billion consumption and a population of 2.2 million people. Tembisa has R20.4 billion and Soshanguve has R19 billion,’ says a Fraym analysis of granular retail spending data (2019) over the past ten years.

It’s time township entrepreneurs challenged Corporate South Africa.

As we’ve heard, Joe Rogan’s exclusive multiyear deal with Spotify will see the company pay him about $100 million for an exclusive licensing of his podcast.

This is according to The Wall Street Journal, an anonymous source (theirs), and a calculation of the podcast’s performance metrics.

365 THINGS YOUTH #3. Figuring out how to do things on your own

As I said in the previous post, people want someone else to show them how to open an email account. Ask Google for that.

Figure out how to do things on your own.

These have benefits. It teaches you how to research. The best knowledge will not come from school, a mentor or someone showing you how to do something. It will come from you doing stuff on your own and consulting other none human sources (the internet or books) first before a person.

It teaches self-reliance. You become competent to solve your own problems – if you can solve your own problems then you can solve other people’s problems. Solving problems is a skill someone can pay your for.

Importantly, it makes you a better student. When you test things on your own, you discover things/tools and new ways of doing things. Then you can go ask someone else to help you, you can uplift them with what you discovered on your own.

When the teacher feels uplifted, they reveal a lot more knowledge.
