Most of our parents (and you, if you’re a parent) will agree that getting a certificate is important. People believe having a certificate, is having a safety net. You can always apply for jobs with it. You’ll never go hungry. I agree that having a certificate is an advantage. But there’s a danger: People who… Continue reading

What having a baby taught me as an entrepreneur
First – huge respect for working parents juggling their work around looking after a baby. As a recent first-time father, my whole world as an entrepreneur changed. Work became challenging, not because there wasn’t enough time, but because I can’t sit at the desk for a long time anymore. Whether you’re writing copy, building products,… Continue reading
5 Money Mindsets to Adopt as a Freelancer
Here’s a popular story: A young elephant was tied to a small stake in the ground. As a baby elephant, it is unable to lift the stake up. Eventually, the elephant learns that and stops trying.

What I learnt doing a 100KM run (in a month)
That it’s nothing to brag about. And anyone can do it. Even you. In mid-2021, my father-in-law asked me if I’d like to join a 100KM run challenge. Not in one go. But to complete 100KM in a month. That breaks down to 3.4KM per day. Sounds doable, so I joined. I’m an okay runner…. Continue reading
Got an audience list?

BUT – very few people talk about what to do… Continue reading
Indecision will cost you more than bad decisions.
It’s estimated that the average human makes 35,000 decisions a day. No wonder some of us have indecisiveness. Which title should I use for my blog? Google ads or Facebook ads? Use green or blue color for the button on my website? Hmm, which is the best data science course. Let me do more research…. Continue reading
You don’t need more information
Like many people, I’m part of many Whatsapp groups. This morning, in a group filled with mostly high schoolmates, a friend asked if anyone knew what a high CT value meant. Someone close to him contracted COVID-19, and her PCR test returned a high CT value. The group returned a few answers. And then just… Continue reading
Influencer vs Content Creator
Oxford (powers Google’s English dictionary), defines an influencer as a person or thing that influences another. It’s easy to think that influencers have some sort of super-power. That they stand above regular people. But look closer and you’ll see that influencers are well, regular people. They are definitely no smarter than you. Influencers are not… Continue reading
You’re in control.
I usually get emails from prospects asking if joining a course will help them get a job. What a question. Like asking if buying a pair of shoes will make me runner – no. A tweet by Naval makes a good reminder: Doctors won’t make you healthy. Fitness coaches won’t make you fit. Gurus won’t… Continue reading
Why ‘Netflix’ for Learning Wouldn’t Work
How many courses have you bought from Udemy, still sit there – untouched from years ago? In just the past 12 months, I’ve bought many courses.
