TOWNSHIP BIZ ADJACENT (A book by Tiisetso Maloma)

Book available at South African bookstores (Exclusive Books, Bargain Books, Protea Books, Loot.co.za, Takealot.com) | Amazon | Kobo | Barnes & Noble | iBooks

The billion Rands generating (yearly) townships are a goldmine that now is, unlike before, favourable and ready to be mined by young black startup entrepreneurs – especially those dealing in B2C (Business to Consumer) and FCMG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) products.

This booklet explores and traces the economic cyclone that is townships through the ‘adjacent possible theory’ by Dr Stuart A. Kauffman.

Understanding the economics of township through the adjacent possible theory helps to create and innovate products that are suiting, i.e. products that the township can support into continuous virality.

An earlier rejection email had heightened the panic. All these triggered my mind to think I have no hope: immediately, I time travelled to the past and the future. I saw no advantage of what my past has brought to today and I saw no light in my future.

Anxiety invades our productivity and therefore our goals. All it takes is to not see progress in a day, then a week or a month. The next thing you know, you are standing at the peak of the highest anxiety hill, depressingly recalling your record of failures and doubting your future.

This book goes through what to do to counter such episodes – and below are things you can do now: Read more
