We all need multiple income streams
Blog by Thabo Mmotong We all need multiple income streams
Not all of us get the opportunity to earn a six-figure salary or to run a multimillion rand business.
Most of us depend on a single monthly income [if we are lucky to even get a job] – and our income is never enough to afford us the life and financial freedom we long for.
A couple of weeks ago I met a lady who also runs her own business. Nothing strange as I meet a lot of ladies who own businesses all the time. What I found strange though was the name of her business which at first seeing it you would think the business is a financial institution when it actually isn’t. After a few exchange of words, I suggested she rebrands. Firstly because the business doesn’t resonate with the services she offers but also because when she bought the building it was already named and she just continued with the name.
What are your expectations for 2017?
The word expectation is defined as; a strong belief that something will happen or be the case. There is power in expectations. Your expectations will dictate your work ethic, the decisions that you need to make, the thoughts you need to meditate on as well as the people you need to surround yourself with.
Walk with integrity
Integrity means the quality of being honest, truthful and having strong moral principles. I believe it is also a fundamental pillar of one’s character. In this day and age a lot of people struggle to walk with integrity. It is easy to make promises, particularly in times of excitement and good feelings. But most times, the circumstances under which we have to fulfill those promises might be a far cry from what they were when we made them. When the time comes to go through with what we said, it might no longer be easy and convenient. Integrity is therefore one’s capacity to keep one’s promises, even when it’s not convenient.
There are things in life that you can't change and they are things that you have the power to change.
Start saving now for your retirement
NEW BLOG BY @mt_thabo Start saving now for your retirement. This is a must-read article for every young adult:
One day you are going to leave your nagging boss and forget the stress of having to wake up every morning in preparation for work. Even if you are self-employed, you are also going to retire from your businesses. When that time comes, will you still be able to pay your monthly bills? The perception that many have is that retirement will bring peace, fulfilment and comfort. Unfortunately what awaits many people at retirement is not a bed of roses. In 2015, the National Treasury announced that only 6 percent of South Africans will retire comfortably.

This Season Is All About New
'This Season Is All About New' by @jackiephamotse
For many, the arrival of summer and festive season means that winter is finally dead for another couple of months, and life will soon be in bloom wherever you look.
For me though, the new season is about SPRING CLEANING MY SPACE. It's about getting everything organized and setting goals and reflecting on what I have done and achieved. In fact, I don't really understand why anyone makes resolutions in Jan.
