How to start from the bottom up

Maybe I have talked about my hustle in other articles but here is dedicated to just that’s and the mindset, work ethic, and more. There will be no particular order in this advice and lesson’s. The goal of today’s piece like “Steve Jobs” is to help you think differently. There was a speech by the man himself saying dogma were man-made that’s doesn’t mean we should keep following them so I will share the way I move so far to reach my financial freedom and I will be honest it’s not easy.

Don’t be a consumer ,be a saver and an investor

My first job was Toyota and I worked there for 2 and half years and its was enough for me to start building my own cash cow, which was rental rooms. My retrenchment came at the right time while I was thinking of buying the car the following year and thanks god because I already had my driver’s license then around 2017 ,I have drove once or twice ever since and I don’t mind cause I know if I love a car I will have to break my own.

My living strategy was saving and then I had no much commitment and my girlfriend was out of high school she was perfect for me I was stingy probably still am.

By the time I left a job I had around 250k plus 50k from provident fund so I still had to figure out my move of how I will save this money, life was good then no stress up until I started building rental rooms.

Be ready to fail big and consistently

Loss and failure is the name of the game, but I don’t want to make it sound lightly this is where people give up and to be honest I don’t blame them but giving up completely is a bad call.

Here is what’s I did during working building my rooms, I listened to financial education on YouTube and listened to business people there and I read books a lot and tried to emulate their work ethic and by the time the black sworn come I was prepared mentally like the book unfuck yourself by Gary bishop, its re-enforce what’s I already know in business if things are going to well something bad is really coming and you didn’t attract it its just laws of nature.

Although Bob Procter seems to disagree so that’s pessimists will stop being negative about starting something new, that some businesses do succeed without major failure or it’s not true that’s people get broke at 30 it’s just what’s pessimist pay attention to and there is always the good and bad side, for you to succeed you need to try to look at the former.

Something terrible happened and rooms were closed and there was no source of income at least one but it was not even close to what’s rooms pay me, that 2018 and stress took a couple of days and couldn’t sleep and ended up keeping my distance from that’s building and look at it objectively not as my retirement fund.

The risky come back

Its 2020 and that’s like now and my rooms are back and things seems to be going well but there is a lot at stake you guys can pray for me to be able to fix all that’s needs fixing before I run into the dip of failure again.

My successful grandfather who supports me in my hustle and who I support a bit in his gave me strength during the first disaster and told me not to sell and I listened and now I’m back and this year he loaned me 40k to down payment another property and I’m very grateful about that’s.

This will be my third small rooms and more cash flow and few debts that I will settle by the end of the year now more risks, am I scared a little do I get stressed now and then yes a lot like when buying a new house there is a lot that’s can go wrong and I tried reaching out to elders and turns out there is no one I’m on my own and I have got used to that.

Your dreams and your better future is your and entrepreneurs or business-minded people are not in a luxury of living a risk-free life because there is none anyway, people who are not investing in the better future of their livelihood are preparing themselves for unmanageable catastrophes and be not one of those people and take control and charge of your life.

Sacrifices

My DNA like Gary Vee usually says doesn’t feel my sacrifices as something I deny myself to do or enjoy is just part of how real life is supposed to be. The problem is school and in church, we are not taught to delay gratification although bible touches on Jesus being a sacrifice the main challenge with Christ deed he left his people free ride in religion and according to hustle without sacrifice, there are no fruits and worse if the bible says there is already someone who has sacrificed himself for your sins, chances are you will keep sinning knowing you will be cleansed in altar every Sunday.

The starting from the bottom is not like that’s in that respect, you have to be in harm’s way and be willing to get burned for your life dream ever since I was in high school I had a picture of the life I want and to be honest is was more like of other people but sooner.

Now tables have turned with new insight and growing I have new plans and no rush of settling down cause I know that’s might slow me down, the hunger, drive, and unforced discipline is still part of my life enjoyment like writing this I had to be in another zone and most people cannot do that.

I have sacrificed most of my normal senses and developed new ones, for example, I’m no longer used to laugh out loud, I try to not be tense and be easy to talk to yet I know if I am in a working environment I’m very strict and pushy and it’s very awkward and the paranoid is keeping my eyes open all the time no matter the setting I’m in, I feel the tension and correct myself quickly if I get out of line and I spend most time alone few likeminded people here and hanging out with them cause us to talk more than do but we motivate each other and know we on the right track.

This is a quarter of my story

Having a thick book is not a easy task, having a book at all is a huge achievement cause people will benefits from your existence. By clipping my life here I’m portraying a picture things might be going well for you, have a job and a family and business you saved it for later and I agree not all people should do the same thing.

But being in control of your future and your time and how you spend it and opening your eyes with good books and really see the depth of life, but writing this I wish you to be curious and learn more do more and with your leisure time listen to audio books and biographies of successful people.

Look you may be a millionaire in your own right and knowing money when you have it you don’t change that’s much, yes you effort quality things even your skin is moisturized but still, your mindset is your and humility, love or hate of other people is still there.

Less than 3 million seems like you have something but by your standards you know you can have more and the tricky part is how you measure that’s worth if it’s liquid cash you might consider better investment tools or if it’s fixed in one property or maybe is in your personal assets than you are not rich but I’m sure you know this by now.

For those who are at the bottom and want to go up, here is one advice: avoid doing what’s many people do and follow what’s rich people do by listening to their advice and looking at how they handle themselves and lastly help the rich to get started cause if you help the poor at this stage they will drag you down with them. Go up and share wisdom and anyway you can help but don’t get swayed easily.

The real challenge is starting, when you in you can focus and get things done and a point across. Thank you for coming over and really use your curiosity for good cause there are lot of titles online and they’re no good hope I’m not one of those. I know I’m not the amusing type but please keep this Blog nearby or bookmark it my live journey will be printed here as well as our music hustle as LnM, Aka ULwaz No Makhula please like the page aside for the fun of it. Bye

Why we drag doing and what’s we can do about it

 As human beings we have tendency of planning too much which may lead to not getting things done. But there are techniques we can develop to propel us into action. For me this subject is very hard one because I can put off writing this articles till I’m forced to write because there are no more to post and I already have an audience that’s I don’t want to lose. But what’s about you who have to do things without accountability? We will see how we can find inspiration and why we aren’t eager to do these tasks anyway.

Fear of failure

This one come home to me since I have overcame a lot of things that’s I have thought I have failed at and one of them was my business where my property was flooded by water in 2018 with people inside. After this I stepped away a bit because this really messed with me emotionally and I thought it was an end of that’s phase of my life. Now looking at this objectively helped me to be no longer emotional attached to this business because it’s a business after all not my baby and challenges are bound to happen. So I let people back and listen to my mother’s advice, now we up and running and using an income to save for unforeseen circumstances.

You may be in a similar simple situation or more than mine, you job is to get back at it and try to solve and do that’s wok you’ve been delaying.

Because its seems hard or annoying

For about this subject read David Schwab’s thinking big book. Even easy things like dishes we can put off doing them but the simple strategy is the moment everyone is done eating, don’t wait for it to pile up just stand up and do it without thinking about it.

Email sending, phone call its will keep destructing your thoughts and fill your head space if you don’t do it soon enough so get on it. What’s I normally do which seems like a super power now is use my to do list app to write down things I need to do .and its my go to place when I think of doing something so I could write it down. It’s also the same place I run to if I need to do something or prepare the next day tasks. But most importantly if I can do it immediately I do it and free myself from it.

Because we are scared and not sure if we can pull it off

Some to do’s have results and we may need to face them head on with their consequences. Some are like starting a business it’s easy to have an idea or even writing it down but the problem starts when you need to start taking action and implementing your idea. In other cases you simply need to get rid of your phone and get down working.

Leave your friends, move to a quiet place but whatever it is you need to do that’s to get things done. Like the saying, if you think you can you can but if you think you can’t you can’t, it’s all in your mind there will be no progress if your negative mind overpowers your positive mind.

If the negative mind shows you all the reason’s you can’t and you believe all that’s scary outcome and dismiss the possibilities of the positive side of your mind, you can never reach anything of substance in your life and problems will always get the most of you. That’s why you shouldn’t let fear scare you. Because fear shows only the bad sides of the possible outcome and dismisses the triumphs ahead.

We like comfort and hate things that’s inconveniences us

The comfort we enjoy right now is the enemy we wish we would’ve fought when we realize later in life. The TV games and the series, hangouts and chilling in social media and really hustling backwards it’s our downfall as a new society. We want to be happy and hip as culture embrace celebrities and today we all wants’ that’s.

Because of that’s realization I decided to start writing and create awareness in this blog maybe you might feel and see the wrong reasons we use internet for .What’s youth talks about on Twitter is really painful and kills the dreams of many and I will share one day the tweets that’s broke my heart and really thoughts of how our community is dying because its promote such behavior.

On the other side KZN Lockdown Cypha and other movements that’s has came out of social media are really showing a great opportunities for artists in to using the platforms and thrive the only sit down needed is how this artists can be compensated for their efforts so it’s not all bad,it’s also depends to what’s you focus on as a individual .So rather than boycotting online and binge watch TV set times to enjoy this and maybe be a content creator and monetize on your fun.

Our life doesn’t depend on it

I thought people work jobs because its pay’s bills but It was clear to everyone as human beings we need something to do in general and what’s we do end up creating an identity for us which can be good or bad. If your life depended on your job you wouldn’t challenge your boss if he breaks health and safety laws because he might’s fire you. But what’s if you do most of the things as if your life depends on it? Of because you can priorities accordingly but just tell yourself if I don’t this I might die as an attitude.

Seek inspiration , for me I rarely write this articles out of my own thoughts but it’s always connecting what’s I’ve read online in real life experience or conversation that’s need to be broken down and analyzed and possibly get perspective that’s can guide our lives that’s how I get idea’s of this blog.

Or I open a word and stare at it until something comes up because brain never stops. Since writing is not talking I have saw the time I spend inside the house has got me disconnected to people and actually feel the tension presenting myself in front of people ,so I will act like my life depends on it to bridge that’s gap in my life personally and professionally . So you too as a reader pay more attention to yourself when you are with yourself and more on other’s when you are with them and try to not talk about other people too much afterwards.

This is it for today I hope you learnt a lot of things and you will be impacted LnM we are out. Follow us on social media for more articles like this @Ulwaznomakhula

5 Reason’s why new love relationships fails

Hi welcome back to LnM, and to this juicy attractive title. This might help some other’s will dismiss it and continue with their old ways that’s doesn’t work. Some of the tips I share here are quoted in Alux.com YouTube video “What’s woman look for in a man , and vice versa” So if you get sometime go watch that’s it’s going to open your mind .Also Valuetainment on the topic , how to marry and who to marry. But due to demographics situations may differ so for me in South Africa I will be able to really touch on all the reasons why relationship fails that’s happens here in Africa.

  1. Because we don’t study from people who has successful relationships

Failing to study about this, as individuals makes us put our new partners in a hard situation. In everything you do, you need its working mindset that’s can be finance, parenting, work and so on .for you to differ from the rest you must teach yourself.

The council about relationship, shouldn’t come from your player friend, unless you want to be a player as well. And personally I have met ladies and try to date them and show them my intentions earlier because I don’t want to play and waste my time.

For a moment they understand and for some reason’s its seems like all that’s effort is a wrong move and it’s overwhelm them but until I find someone who will get what’s I’m saying I won’t anybody’s time as well as mine. You don’t get it, I politely let you go before we do something we both regrets. Failure to get advice from people who has been dating for 6 months to a year or 3 years, is a sure sign that’s you both will wing it until your relationship dies an early dearth. Then when you are ready to get married, see a pastor or anyone who has been married for a long time.

2. Because we don’t understand what’s love is

I want to be clear,I’m not saying what’s will happen in your new relationship that’s purely up to you and your partner. I’m mentioning the obvious trends that’s usually make relationships fail, other fail before they even begun and I have that’s experience firsthand. Because I am a continua’s learner I tend to know about life then my partner’s and to be honest I have my negative flaws as well but I’m working on them.

Getting back to the point ,not knowing what’s love is , I think is the number 1 problem young and old people who just started dating have. Maybe you have a different way to define love but I will make an example we will all understand. At home my mother has never once said, she loves me but I know she do then the question be how would you know your partner loves you with him/her uttering those words? The answer of real love is there. Love is a verb and verb is a doing word.


My understanding of love is you show it by doing things a lover do to the people they love. If you tell me you love me and leave me like that’s, you don’t really love me. I know others are thinking sex or being with a person in person this will differ to a gender but ladies are not impressed by sex only or mostly they want affection according to the reverend I was listening to yesterday, show them love and bond with them. Then us guys we do love making love, respect and for me personally a simple consideration on your day and how you go about things but I will expand later.

3. We date a person for wrong reason’s

I think anyone reading this subtitle can relate,it can be quite challenging having the kind of woman in our society who values material things but that’s can be a reality that’s should inspire us as man to better ourselves. On the other hand things attracts weak girls so, we shouldn’t take it to heart all of the above can make a relationship fail.

 Dating for convenience is an existential suicide because what’s ever made you fall in love will always be a reminder for one another for example I found him unemployed and I was there for him till he got a job, so he can’t leave me. 1st of all if that’s was your reason to date him in the first place then that’s was a wrong reason because now you make it’s like you won a jackpot.


To us guys as well dating a person because , she can cook ,clean and wash while we chilling at a sofa is a terrible strategy that’s was used by other great grand ancestors. Today a woman who respects you and self-sufficient who you guys meets half way is a 21st century kind of woman you should aim for.

Dating someone because you lonely is also a bad move be rational a bit when getting in a relationship although feelings will take place but acting on them all the time is counterintuitive. By my standards I approached based on chemistry but I cannot always act on that’s because its might happen even if I’m in a happy relationship. Like today its happened but I couldn’t act maybe it was fear as well or place we were at but you get the point.

4 We don’t know what’s makes a good partner

It’s hard to measure a person’s mindset but that’s all there is in a good partner the way he / she thinks and looks at things. Way of talking, dealing with problems some people don’t talk or work through thing they let them pile up until someone can’t handle it anymore. Issues needs attention a good partner don’t lets things slide at the same time let you boyfriend or girlfriend have a life without you.

You don’t have to tag along all the time. Trust and be trusted and don’t do doggy things be upfront all the time and think through your words first especially if you cannot delete the message immediately on whatsapp like other partners do. I have made a rule once I have send a whatsapp I won’t delete it, I rather refrain myself because we are left curious and assume after the person has done that’s. Important person to your life should do that’s.

5. Some are not dating but just browsing

Browsing is a first step to finding a right partner and I want to indicate a mistake I have done and learn later was looking a partner just like me. I want to tell you there’s none , so reading all this just bear in mind the perfect some boys you picture won’t be yours and for a good reasons. You won’t be compatible from a person who has once dated his crush they turn out to be people after all and they have everyday problems and can stress you like every partner you meet. So bear your partner uniqueness and work with it.

Back to the point, rather be single and try to figure yourself out. If you was a problem in a previous relationship, chances you will be the same in the next one so change. I have saw people who started by being players and want to settle down, while cheating to their fiancés, it’s never ends well.


If someone is my fiancé she has a right to take any measures to make our relationship work ,so if she put spy on me say a neighbor girl ,that’s ok because that’s girl should produce a proof if not then it’s a word against hers ,but what’s if that’s is done and you are clean? That’s what’s you should aim for as a man or a woman but what’s if that’s person does the spying thing out of insecurities that’s maybe he/she is the one who is cheating? I want to encourage you don’t worry about it, this things has a funny way of showing up try to leave your life stress freely.

Because if the relationship is old or new there is always that’s what’s if, I want you to drop that’s baggage right now and set your mind free. Cause the stress will eat you alive. If your partner is still wine taste while you there and don’t seem to get better ,call it quit or do what’s will be best for you. Don’t look what’s you might be leaving behind, if it was yours you was not going to fight for it.

6. Because other’s are still hold on to old relationship’s

Usually making examples about myself, can make things clear for other. My longest relationship was 3years and you don’t just get over that’s overnight. That’s why as a person being single sometimes is not a curse but not for way too long. As you dealing with old wounds and so on, then later decide if you have healed to let someone new in your relationship.

I will suggest what’s was suggested to me and made sense , in relationship or business there are things we can never do as individuals and we cannot to it to other’s and you don’t want them to be done to you. They call it 3 non-negotiable .1st day you meet your partner he/she must know if you do this it’s over no questions asked. So maybe you want to leave me and you don’t know how to tell me, cool do one of this things.

You may know this from your previous partner or from other people. Say cheating, drinking alcohol for example. Mine was and still is alcohol, because it’s easy to lose all kinds of virtues once you go that’s path. Maybe other can handle themselves after few drinks but I still don’t recommend it in my relationships, even in friendships this is not good because your friend can change a bit at this point.


You might still be in contact with your ex because of a kid, this might still be a problem in your new relationship .So one of the guy I know simply gave the new potential wife that’s role to deal with his ex for the kid sake and its working well. They don’t meet or talk at all. So figure out your own system so you will not be forced to be hold on to the past.

Has come to an end of today’s insights ,sharing my views doesn’t means you have all tools now to deal with your relationship keep learning from others as well and the most important thing you can have in a relationship is humility and listening skill. Pay attention to things your partner repeats to you, I don’t like this and that’s. And the point is should’ve added is friends influence , once you start a relationship I can recommend not taking advices from friends especially singles ones ,or those who seems to fail to keep a relationship going. Why is that’s they have the most influence on you, I saw a woman’s who cheated and she was about to get married we may never know the whole story but friend is there.

This blog is based on good working friendship by ULwaz No Makhula , friendship is good and it’s important for other people but if you haven’t built that’s brotherhood/ sisterhood friendship really try not to consider their advices. If I’m not in a relationship it’s hard for me to give advices, but I can sympathize with my friend and try to put him/ her on the line by words if I can. Thanks for reading , I would like to hear your views and points you might add below , I want to learn from you as well.

5 Key ways to get / acquire information

I think this will be the one of the important subjects to cover since this week we release our 1st book. It was crucial for us to release it because we didn’t want to answer same questions over and over. We live in technological era where the computer and phones technologies are so powerful and efficient but still some people still don’t know how to acquire information that’s they need. The word research might frighten you but it should , for us is basically looking for information we need , nothing more nothing less so today we want to share how we do it.

  1. We make use of Google and YouTube

Here how we use this tools, instead of knowing, how to search movies, music and TV series that’s we can entertain ourselves with we prefer looking for insight that’s we can grow our soft skills (Reading, writing and thinking) and mind with. This is a music artists blog but we going to be broad a bit in our topics because we see most people relate and can apply what’s we share in their niche so we don’t want to keep ourselves in the box and at the same time we not trying to push you away.

So Google its simple if you have connection data on your network provider you can get in a browser app and search for everything you want by starting your sentences like How to? , Who is or was which is and then put your full question. Look at all the answers and choose wisely and try to not get destructed by ads, take what’s you need and get out. Websites like Qoura and Pinterest usually pop up because their information sites and people have already answered your questions so those should be a obvious go to or Blogs like this one have the information you need. YouTube usually pop up there as well but if its something you want to learn practically or you want someone to explain to you, you can go directly to YouTube and ask on their search the subject you want.

  • 2 Read a book on it.

Sometimes a quick Google search is not enough for the topic you want to learn that’s why we suggest a book. So this is hard for us in South Africa reading a book or books but this has to stop because our country is behind on everything in the world because this basic skill is not yet mastered by a large number of populations. The only way to falling love with reading is starting by reading articles about interesting subject like money then your curiosity may lead you to taking a book .or read about the topic of your choice that’s where you will find everything for that’s time being you can use to win in that’s area of your life. As a music artist you can read biography of Michael Jackson or 2pac I promise you there is lessons there or read 50th of Law by 50cent and Robert Green. I have another option which is Audio books and they’re my hacks you may think I have read so many book while actually I download audios and replay them they are same as paper books in format but it’s a person reading for you only thing you need is a space to listen.

2020 release
  • 3 Do what you want to learn and fail or luckily be good right away.

Today’s article maybe something we already know, but we want to reinforce to you do them, if you are doing them you are in the write path. This point is about figure something out by actually doing it .Now go and do it…

  • 4 Don’t be lazy about it

The best thing you can do for yourself is acquiring data, I know we spend a lot of time on whatsapp, watching each other’s status and we have nothing of substance going in our lives and we need to wake up and figure out what’s we can do with all the time we are wasting and now we helping you get information 1st about money how to make it ,how to keep it and how to grow it. We think it’s everybody’s responsibility to take care of their financial education because schools didn’t teach it not it’s a lock down get down to your numbers and really know how much is in your account and where you putting it in general, are you spending or investing .Lets start a habit of saving money. Then move to relationships, study love relationships and other form of relationships so that’s you won’t cause your friend or partner stress when drifting through life by not being a competent lover. And be open minded ,your spouse may suggests saving or sending kids to private school always give things a thoughts before deciding ,don’t say we didn’t grew up like this or your partner is living life by a book there is no such thing , you just being lazy to grow and take those responsibilities. Pay attention and learn from everything good or bad, especially bad.

tag us everytime you hit a new post , we want to know how you think and hold you accountable

  • 5 Get info from your past mistakes

It’s a hard one but you have to have some balance, see when you hire people to do some work for you once others take the money they don’t finish the work, so what’s must you do? Pay them half and pay them more lately. The problem with this people are not the same and as important to do contracts and have deals in place dealing with money where I’m from we seems to have no time for that’s .I don’t have a solution for you yet either we have to do the search and figure this out or its will hurt us constantly .But the rule of thumb is finish your job and get paid.

The challenge and skill other contractors use now is very hand bending, they give you a invoice you pay then they do the service for you with a due date as well. You should look into that’s as well.

Thanks for checking out today’s article, its cant be always be about music, although we are musicians but we are human beings and that’s why this topic was important, share to anyone who might need it.
