Who is more valuable family or friends?

This might look like a question but most people fail to make this distinction in their lives that’s why we are showing the crucial differences today and how we have found to work best when making life decisions that’s involves this people in our lives.

God has bless me with both friend and family also have friends that’s doesn’t come close to my best friend who has become my adopted brother who we run this blog with. So let’s see if there are no lessons to be taken on this subject.

There are 3 type of friends , Friends for (Reason ,Season and for a Life)

This is self explanatory but as we know the elaboration open our 6th sense and we then connect the dots better. So comparing friends with family is a huge understatement we tend to value the blood thicker than water myth ,yet is true and we don’t choose our families while we choose friends.

The question is in this 3 type of friends which one is yours? If it’s for a reason get that’s over with and move on with your life and don’t hold on too much to that’s friend because what’s ever reason you are together will end someday.

The friend of a season can be good and bad if they love you if you are rich then run when you struggle then that’s a seasonal friend , others love you when you are poor like them when you better yourself they leave you.

And more type of friends so choose wisely for me a friend should always be there in good and bad ,rich and poor ,your family and his can also be close because of what’s you have .

Family over everything

I tend to agree with this one from the get go why because family can be your downfall in life or uplift so having them in their place can do you good.

The best think to realise is there are two type of family ,present one and future one if you still live with your mother and father sister brother and grandma then that’s your present family.

But if you are married and you have your own wife or husband and your kids then that’s future family ,what’s ever culture you build within this family will determine the better life experience you will have or life of grudges and hate you will have to endure .

Either way you can consider your family opinions in your life journey but it’s not family over everything ,but because they love you and emotionally attached they can be a great sheild from harm and hardship but some of that’s is necessary for you to build a thick skin for you ,in business and life in general.

People outside your immediate family have unbiased opinion and life lessons that’s can change your life for the better ,so question everything and every norm and old myths that’s blocks your path. Leaving your family is the first thing to test you and help you navigate life.

How many friends should a person have

This shouldn’t be a thing , why because nobody can keep up with a lot of friends let alone one with our busy morden lives but let’s say you have 10 friends which one is more valuable than other?.

For us friendship is like love relationship you need one or two more than that’s it’s all crumble down , for example one of your friends see you as a best friend while you see him or her as a regular friend ,then friction will start showing.

The best thing is to have equal friends and then one best friend because commitments comes with accountability and responsibilities. Facebook friends are not your friend are people you may know , same as Twitter and so on.

The more you build superficial freindships with no substance the more chances you will be used by other people and leave you holding the empty bag , build networks instead, business net ,social community net , book club net and so on positive stuff and please don’t hang with criminals and losse girls because that’s what’s yourl become.

You are the average of five people you spend your time with

Would you choose to spend time with 4 millionaires and you being the fifth or spend time with your 4 kids and you being the fifth.

Although this saying on my title can be contradictory its point is the more time with certain people you get to have their traits and habits as well as their beliefs.

With that’s said having a blog like this as a friend could be a huge leap forward into a cycle of your surroundings ,because you don’t necessary need physical friends to create a psychological cycle that’s with be the average of your thoughts we can be your mentor from far.

Now one friend add to your averages ,then your closest family members second and third your online mentors and positive vibes forth being your love partner and lastly its you and your decisions.

To summarize all this you are your worse enemy what’s ever you decide to take out of this blog is on you to implement it.

People treat you the way you treat yourself and them

See if you show people by action that’s you can be trusted and you keep your word people will reciprocate that’s.

Be a cruk , manipulate lie and cheat chances are karma will play it role so to have a family liveable with you need to be a brother ,mother ,father and kid that’s listen and put himself in other people’s shoes have humility and audacity when putting a point across like acting what’s you preach.

Same to maintaining a friendship for us ,you should be in business with your friend so the money you will make you can enjoy better together lol ,on a serious note you learn your friend best when you see his life skills and how he put out fires and that’s happens well in hustle.

I hope you found me friendly today fam , my goal is to turn this posts to a YouTube voice over videos and if you can pull that’s off 0840196532 whatsapp me.

And later on in life turn it into a book if you can get my right to collect all the posts ever made to chapters and adit it for a better good read . LnM (ULwaz No Makhula) that’s where you like us and follow this blog to get more interesting content #Spliff_Entertainment

How do you go through the middle of the month

I would like to apologize to you who have subscribe and follow this blog called LnM. To be honest I have been lazy lately to write but on other hand I have been dealing with a stress of a middle of a month and acquisitions of a new old house as a real estate for me.

Back to the question of the day ,how do we spend the day’s within the month before we receive our salaries ,pensions , dividends ,profits and more that’s got us going for few days and back to daily doze of dread.

Im at work
Most people are at their jobs ,and thus miss huge chuck of other reality of their lives not saying working is bad actually is a must when you ask me.

Other run their businesses while others are self employed while others earn passive income with less work.

I know most people will they at the latter ,but I assure you as of now you not doing anything that’s you don’t want to do the only challenge you might be having is channelling you money to things that’s will relief you from depending on a job only.

You wake up everyday and do repetitive tasks ,you have studied and mastered your craft but the routine is killing your soul and you are seeking meaning in your life.

I want you to calm down you not alone in this purpose venture ,even the people who are seem to have their life planned out and fun we all find ourselves questioning our existence in this blog we encourage self learning reading books ,try something by Dr Franklin Man search for meaning and really see how fortunate you are to be in the position you are.

I sit around and do nothing
Nothing might be daily choirs in the house then later cook for a family ,for me that’s not nothing remember the housewives that’s all they do after taking care of kids who are at school.

But we are in a Morden age and everyone is aspiring for high paying job or a career of some sort or running their own businesses. I will ask you the question that’s should set a stand for this point “WHATS STOPPING YOU”?

Today I had a realisation that’s I let’s one of my goal sleep this year because I got scared but I really crushed the other by simply believing and by law of attraction.

Use law of attraction and pay attention when nature plays it part e.g say you want a car and all of a sudden without realizing it you get a promotion at work , the mistake you can make is starting by renovating your house or get married and don’t do what’s attracted the promotion in the first place.

Than doing nothing take pen and paper and write down your goals ,for me this year maybe it’s a coincidence but I did write my goals and kept checking them and updating them and saw some results that’s amazed me ,

the point with all this is you don’t need a job to start writing your smart goals and you rarely need money once you have money those are no longer goals are plans.
I hang with friends and gossip and smoke blunt all days.

This goes to young one’s I had to assume that’s you talk politics and pop culture that’s isn’t serving you in any way just pure waste of time. It’s lockdown and you’ve been layed off a bit and they gonna rehire you soon.

Clearly it’s a wake up call I know you’ve been dreaming of having some free time here you go what’s you doing now? I know ,I know you have ran out of funds but that’s not the case here .

The above choices are simply not worth it in a long run act like an adult and behave like there are kids relying on you for their well being ,start that’s now because the future will be exactly like that’s why don’t you get used to it?.

In the future I know I won’t be working for the sake of working I’ll be simply taking care of people and getting paid for that’s and im trying my best to learn them now and try different tactics to persuade them and get to benefit from our relationship ,win win situation not selfishness.

I remember people I use to spend time with had so much influence on me even though I was doing better than them in some aspect of life ,it was easy for me to take their advice and later regretted cause deep down I knew what’s I was supposed to do.

Im still good friends with some of this people but I have find a way to spend less time with them and my new friends are on internet on YouTube and Pdf books audio books and tv shows like shark tank take notes and look for the right people to follow and learn to better your life.

I day dream , play music and watch series

I am a fan of tv series ,I love them but luckily I have better recommendations than the most who watch the most trending one’s but less educational.

You see the channel I started watching called Alux on YouTube first said successful people don’t watch tv and later contradict themselves and suggested powerful one’s with life and money lessons which other people find boring and to be honest I had a hard time at the beginning as well but like a book reader it’s start hard and get easier the more you read .

Music can be bad when it’s come to time wasting ,I am a music producer and I go for months without listening to music because I get hooked really quick since I understand the dynamic of it.

I find a dope song and jam with it over and over and that’s important time wasted without bettering myself , don’t get me wrong it’s not all bad if you feel good sometimes blaze it and jam and enjoy the moment but don’t make it a strategic for your life .

Day dreamers ,im a wonder too that’s the only way I get breakthroughs in my life ,what has your day dreaming lead you?

The kinda day dream that’s doesn’t work is the one that is not calculated this week my other relative came and told me if he could have a million he can do so and so ,now you don’t want to think like that’s in your mind you show that’s you don’t have any idea how you can acquire such money.

You also show that’s you overvalue such money than what’s it can accomplish , I have never had 1000 000 but I once had 300 000 and seeing what’s that’s kind of money can do I manage to connect the dots leading to a million.

Others claim to have made such money in their lifetime but yet their not different from me and you ,why because they see it as fine art everytime they earn it monthly they don’t know it’s potential to set them free even from work they endure.

Let’s me close today’s article I hope you learnt something or too and I might sound like a stuck record tape saying common things over and over ,so I suggest you go back to other articles below and learn more .

Few things you can live without and you shouldn’t worry about them

We live in a consumer society and as people we want to own everything under the sun but that’s might affect you badly if you want to keep up with the Jones while you at the bottom class. This is not a minimalist message or cut coupon kind of information but its common sense that’s we can all relate to.

This is financial but its inspired by emotional attachment from other people, today I went to clinic and there was a real cue there and I saw people waiting hours and I was one of them for that’s service but what’s was really mind blowing was seeing youth wearing $1000 / R1000 sneaker but using public healthcare, my math says I rather go to a doctor and pay a little bit and don’t own expensive sneaker and get my time back. Let’s get this into point form.

Dstv or subscription cable TV

Paying premium on entertainment is for rich people say double digit millionaire who can pay for the whole year without a blank. But rarely you will see this people do that’s because they encourage reading books and a bit of balance of the entertainment for their kids. Now getting back to us ,if money is important to you ,you know R100 per month is R1200 per year that’s 12 000 in 10 years instead you can have a TV with Ariel or once off open HD and enjoy national tv for free while tackling real challenges in your life and better yourself.

The only subscription we recommend here in LnM is Audible not Netflix, in audible you can get audio books of personal development and improve your current situation. Or use YouTube for free just by buying a small data , personally since 2018 nothing entertain me more than learning to the point that’s I thought maybe sometimes I need to stay back a bit and revise the information I have learned and try to apply it in my life. Although I have had some success so far but my learning is above my actual life outcome.

Expensive clothes

Uniforms here are the best recommendation; you can live happily and well respected while wearing Mr. Price clothes or HnM but all you have to do is to keep them clean. Like every young person we get obsessed with cloths and this is just a way to get social validation from our friend but at our parent’s expense.

The best practice a parent can give is teaching his/her kid to not get anything they want ,especially don’t give them luxury at an earlier age that’s will end up going to their head and make them feel entitled while they still don’t know how to work for this things.

I like to make examples with myself  ,so I taught my nephews to save money and if someone borrow it charge them interest  ,but so far I have failed to teach them assets which are things they can buy that’s will make them more money. Clothes are valuable if you sell them and them represent your brand, so we encourage that’s but be mindful it’s a challenging industry.

Lot of lame friends

Having a lot of friends won’t do you any good unless its quality people and once the number is high that’s friendship won’t be effective so try to have a handful of people you call friends. I knew a guy who I thought we came a long way, I didn’t consider him much of a friend because I already have a best friend so he was just a friend or acquaintance we had something in common and if we didn’t talk about that’s thing we were totally different people.

But there is something he did that’s I took lightly at 1st but later I realize I cannot keep this guy very close today I’m really keeping my distance from that’s guy. So for you reading  you don’t need to go through the same thing ,study people and see their actions ,if they do one of the member in a group wrong like backstabbing or gossiping they could possibly do it to you let alone a friend that’s can sleep with people’s exes that’s a homerun for a red flag.

Keep handful of friends really valuable people ,people you can count on and who can count on you and try not to test people in anyway act in a time of need because people they can sense if they are not trusted.

Low paying and uninspiring job

Little reason’s to stay a certain job, pay or its potential to pay well or if you enjoy doing that’s job or lastly its cause or mission is bigger than all of us. At work you should not worry about what’s other’s think because that’s will lead to mod mentality and yourl end up being average.

The perks and benefits shouldn’t be the defining factor when you pick a job because you going to spend your whole life there, doing that’s thing. Consider the environment the people the leader and the team spirit, be the best version of yourself when you at work and crush it every time they watch result , if you could find a job where you can be yourself in it and have a positive attitude most of the time that’s will be the winner.

But not all jobs are like this other jobs are for you to get yourself from the ground up. Don’t look at your paycheck as fruit of your labor but look at it as a ladder to a better life, meaning you won’t use all the money on bills but you will think of saving and starting a business and investing on assets. You will buy books and attend conferences and take those lessons’s and put them into good use.

Luxury house, car earlier on

You and I shouldn’t buy luxury the moment we can afford to make the monthly payments, this is my mindset I cannot do a debt that’s will leave me vulnerable to options. House mortgages are 15 to 30 years payment every month car is 5 years unless I buy this things in cash. At some point I know I can buy them in cash so the discipline I need to have to raise this money from my job I will apply.

I don’t know how other people operate but if this job is all you have or you can get the job elsewhere but you still going to need the blessings of the present job to move, what’s if one day you have to challenge your boss because he is breaking certain laws of the company and it will affect your job. Knowing you have kids and house and a car that’s needs monthly payment you have two options challenge him and be at risk of losing that’s job or maybe he may understand and change his ways. Or let it slide and always compromise because of the luxuries you don’t want to lose.

I learnt very well in 2014 that’s money is important to have it in the bank ,than anything tangible ,that’s year I lost my well paying job but I had a lot of money and no luxuries yet but I was planning to get one the following year cash. Forget about fica credits score myths and the ability to borrow that’s shouldn’t be your problem, you should teach yourself how to leverage debt or don’t take it if you scared of taking risks and can’t manage your own money.

Thanks for hanging out with us today on LNM we appreciate you taking the time to invest on you. Our observations are not government recognized it’s our views and our way of life ,you can always contact your financial advisor and legal entity to guide you but you can always show them the direction which is what’s we are trying to give you.

5 THINGS TO DO AFTER THE SONG IS RECORDED AND READY FOR DISTRIBUTION

Welcome to the 2nd article of ULwaz no Makhula Show where we teach artists like us what do we have applied to make our songs stand out on social media which led to having them popular around the world.

[Durban Inanda, March 31, 2020 Tuesday] —

  1. Make sure you and your friend, producer or group member feels the same way about the song.
    What’s do we mean by this point? If one of you feels there is a problem with a song and don’t say he won’t believe in a song and won’t be able to push it like you do. And your probably feel that as well and you will both loose getting poor feedback. Key push the song until person who loves other genre wants to hear it out.
    Adding on the 1st point even if the song is already out you can fix what ever you pick up. When we attended Music Imbizo we had a Luck of meeting a music engineer who tested our song on the studio monitor/ speakers that’s he was promoting to sell small one but powerful. He wasn’t even a fan of qgom but he heard that’s our song was more on Hi’s Frequency meaning there was no bass. On that’s point we mastered the song on 2 different engineers and we go back home and we realized we choose the wrong song with missing bass. Which helped us by the time we were doing Music Video we had a right song. So Key to this point you don’t know who may spot the problem of a song take that’s critique constructively.

You not as good as you think or anyone tells you and you not as bad you are in between.

Our Label
  1. Put Your Song in Free downloadable Platform as well as STREAMING Digital Platform.
    Firstly you want to be omnipresent on internet; we didn’t know this until we read a book by grant cordon 10X rule. It’s simply means multiply yourself and be available everywhere especially to people who do what’s you do and those who loves it and buy it. Hats way you won’t be obscure people will know about you, follow you and possibly book you so you have to put your song everywhere. our favorites , SlikouronLife , Datafilehost , Audiomack , Youtube(Audio) ,Reverbnation ,and websites related to the genre you are doing , for instance submit to Fakaza most qgom is there , if it’s hip hop submit to websites like move hip-hop or hype and Dot com to all of those. digitally we have used song cast so far , but we planning to change to distrokit its recommended those are distributers to your online stores , Amazon , iTunes , play store ect they charge a bit but not so much .

3. Sacrifice as an individual for the team but into a certain extent.
In Life, business and Music sacrificing plays a huge role but others can take advantage of your good heart so be captious. If there’s harmony in friendship and you all have similar principles others will thank you for your effort which will be a good recognition to what’s you do even if you don’t have to. Either you putted some money to boost a page or make an artwork its doesn’t matter ,if you feel things needs to move a bit faster than you might’s encourage others by your good deed while hitting your own target. But don’t make it like you competing.

Khonintengbambile artwork
  1. Post links daily, answer people.
    As you engage on social media , don’t ignore inboxes obviously others are going to see since all you are admins so if you guys/ girls respects each other you won’t say something that’s will diminishes the image of a group. Even if you are a solo artist, respect people think before you talk. Post links on places that’s doesn’t feel like spamming meaning. you only tag people once the day you release the song with a link and a beautiful artwork after that’s they will see it on your wall/ tweet or feed…coz if you tag every time they won’t know even if you say something important or you release again coz you always tag.

We dont look at for opportunities we create them.

behind the scenes of angsaboni music video
  1. Check if combining our moves from the 1st article to this one if there’s no difference (Google Your group name).
    So algorithms and way to attract traffic to your music and videos may change but websites that’s push music doesn’t maybe better ones manifest but they all have a common goals put fresh talent on their platform . Meaning your song will be scooped and nice article about you guys will be wrote. even though there are things we do that’s is our DNA like I’m Swing he is Makhula and our strategy of pushing is not the same but it’s all leads to the same place fans and people who loves music. I don’t know if it’s too early to say this but there is a little information that in the future will require us to be with you face to face and help you apply it. We can tell you but it will be effective over the video. things like don’t hold meetings as friends everything you talk should be ispan or music business cause you have other friends that’s you talk other stuff with…so automatically where my friend hit me up I know we on to something, we can ask how is family but it’s very rare cause we get time to hang out but not every time.

    So my number is 0840196532 it’s still public for business until, its fails me to share it. But we have our manager number public if you want to work with us. It’s best if you reach out to this people already in the industry not just via what’s app but by calling them. So Makhula humbles himself to this people we are scared to talk to and end up getting something out of it. Advice, collabo you may never know but the fact that’s they know you know means a lot. For me I Add them on what’s app of some reason they come to me because I have some other expertise in music like beat making a wealth of contacts. So your job as an artist keep pushing the content on your statuses , stories and so on somehow as much as this big artists they say their busy they watch your moves by mistake.

5 steps to making a powerful hit single

[Durban Inanda, March 30, 2020 Monday] –Welcome to the 1st episode of Ulwaz no Makhula Show where we teach artists like us what’s we have applied to make our songs stand out on social media which led to having them popular in Durban or Ken in particular and around the world.

https://www.instagram.com/ulwaznomakhula

Point number one on how to make a powerful single.

  1. Get a good and a bit recognized producer who knows the genre you doing.
    When we started doing singles which is what’s we’ve been doing till today , we did song on our own , using unpopular producer but who had a potential and who did became popular a bit…that was 2009 song called syavuma .it was a nice song but you cannot find it on the internet which should be your primary goal. Your song needs to be big on internet 1st.

We are men & woman who are practical in dealing with the conditions in our community

Nelson Mandela

Our second Single 2017 if I’m not mistaken we worked with Dj Target No Ndile but we didn’t mention them cause we paid and all that loll , which backfired still the streets doesn’t know us the song was called IYONA and we pushed it hard even putted it on digital platform but platform we targeted ignored us..
2018 that where things started to happen , on our new Song KHONINTENGBAMBILE featuring the best in the game TOS and we did the smart thing by mistake and mention target and Ndile…that when Internets and music websites pick up on us….great producer great artists that the 1st step that made our song a hit.

https://vm.tiktok.com/GmfPmQ/

  1. Find helping artists that are good at what’s you not.
    this point goes straight to the artists that like to work solo, it doesn’t work well to be unkom idla yodwa, and here you don’t have to get a famous artist on 2 of our big songs we used Magibela because he has a great voice for qgom, but when time came for amapiano we had to leave him coz we could manage and we did. So let’s say the song we did on our own was not good we need help. We would have looked for help from people who does the genre we were approaching. So embrace help.
Services we offer at Spliff Entertainment
  1. Do music with your best friend (Mature Best Friend or your Gf)
    This point will be counterintuitive but why this person. 1st of all you need to define your a best friend and see if you have anything in common. This show is about friends doing music not doing crime. we not partners in crime we partners in business you may not know us and thinks we pushing some ego or lying to you I dare you to Google us. my point being if you referring to your old buddy from primary and you suddenly meet in a show and now you decide to start a group it’s not going to work. This is how it’s happen to us, maybe it’s not going to work for you but hear us out.
    we started by being friends for year while I Lwaz was busy with hip hop and Makhula busy with qgom neNdw Boyz.Our friendship became strong to the point that we wouldn’t let each other down in every endeavor we are taking. So that how you should start. Because you start with others bakshiye endleln waste of time and money when they drop you.
    Gf Part comes from our other Friend Jozlina who mixes our songs he does Music with his love of his life. You cannot go wrong in that they have been in No.1 countless times on Mtv base top 10. They apply their chemistry well its works.
  1. Don’t wait to build a team.
    Don’t wait for a manager or producer that you can use for free .don’t wait for anything. If you want to make this hit show your friend this video And ask sngahlulwa yin ,we can do this…its might be a challenge spending say a budget of R2500 in a period of 3 months but it will be worth it. Pay for studio, artwork, and boosting of a song as well as mixing and mastering on this money that your team. Since maybe you are friends of two or three divide R2500 by number of yourselves and contribute.
Today’s gift for everyone reading
  1. After you released the song push it (digitally) like crazy.
    We going to start by saying something unpopular on this point, you no longer need and free performance exposure 2get recognized, expose you on all social Medias. Face book, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, tumbler, youtube ECT…organize neat links and don’t let a day or 3 hours without posting your hot song. So this how it happened to us maybe we have never talked about it but it’s happen coz we true friends. If I see Makhula posting I feel guilty and like I’m not playing my part so I post as well… I invite my friends to like our page, he does the same we want this as bad. If they ask you to come and perform charge them because they see your hard work so you will be able to be motivated and push more.
