Take Calculated Risks!

If you don’t move or take a step, you may not see the opportunity around the corner.

It is always better to take action than do nothing. You are responsible for your actions which make up 90% of what happens to you in life.

As the year 2019 comes to an end, I am grateful for the opportunity given me to serve and open to better opportunities to offer more services in the coming year.
The best way to learn is by doing, therefore, I urge you to learn a new skill on the job or on your own and improve yourself.

Show appreciation and be openminded. Take time to think through any situation or problem. Think before you act, there are various ways to analyze and solve a problem. The craziest idea may be the best solution. Do your research and take calculated risks.

Looking forward to more opportunities, cooperation and partnerships in 2020.
Enjoy the holidays and a joyous New Year.

Positive Mind

The power to choose is yours for the taking, although a lot of people are governed by fear and let others decide for them. When you do that, you let yourself down because you are the only one who can decide right for yourself.

A positive mind is open to possibilities, and it is the bedrock for success. Positive thinking allows you see what others don’t see.

Imagine a situation where business ideas are discussed, SWOT analysis is done. It does not matter if it is over tea, beer, coffee or in a conference room. What matters is, the potential of creative ideas that can generate wealth is discussed.

When I notice negative people, I can tell, simply because as humans we are spiritual beings. what I do in such times is to cut off from them, since negative energy can become toxic, and it takes a lot of energy to correct someone who is negative minded.

Connectivity starts from within you

Humans are more connected than IoT (Internet of Things). You can only feel it if you are connected with yourself first. A lot of people are just existing and not living. Sometimes, you need to drop your phones and gadgets and feel the environment to connect. We have energy all around us.

Deep in you, lies the power to connect to the universe. Do you want to change your job? Search and you will find what you want. You want to change your life, change how you think and things will fall in place. It takes displine to understand oneself, and when you do, nothing is impossible. Be creative, you are here for a reason. Dare to do more and impress yourself.

Stay Positive!

The Value of Time

Time management is one concept people tend to take for granted. Your life itself is a project, Why? You have a time frame; a time of birth and time you will die. It is nothing personal, that’s the way nature works.

The question is, What is Your Time Worth?

https://bit.ly/2OEv0G7

At your workplace, what value do you add to the company? As a person, what value do you add to your life? How open are you to learning new things and taking up new challenges? How do you embrace change? What effect do you have on clients? How do you impact on co-workers?

To be successful in any project, time is important. Time will determine if you spend more on cost or less.

Being open to learning is a vital tool for anyone willing to adapt to change. Never say never, Time is limitless and so is the human mind. Nothing is impossible, therefore, use your time well.

Jonah the crochet weaving prodigy

Jonah was 6 months old baby when he was adopted from an Ethiopian orphanage home, the home where he was sheltered and cared for by loving people. At age 5, he taught himself how to crochet weave and has since then become perfect to the extent of challenging grand mothers who crochet weave.

He has at eleven years old, become a leader in the crochet world, connecting so many people around the world sharing love. With his magical hands, he has weaved different lovely styles, hats, scarfs, etc which has turned into a profitable business.

Without forgetting “Roots Ethiopia”, he started a GoFundMe for the children in the Ethiopian orphanage where he came from to give back to the society.
