To get yourself out of poverty and mediocre, help other people

You might think you lack a job in your life ,or you don’t seem to have an intrinsic value. I can encourage you that’s you are not alone im like that’s I cannot point exactly what’s im good at and when I wake up in the morning sometimes I don’t have a day planned out. So I want to give you tips to make yourself valuable and have rare skills that’s doesn’t require any schooling.

 Be a people’s person

Try to be an extrovert and break the ice in places and start a conversation ,you see its not easy I believe I am an introvert by nature but because I am a continuous learner I studied books like How to influence friends & win people and now I got an edge. Grant Cardone always says everything you need a human has it, you just need to find a way to get it. See don’t mistake that’s statement for selfishness, actually do the service without much expectation and the rule of reciprocal will take it place. For me at home they know I’m good with money ,to be honest I’m not I just know how to lay a story for every cent spent and I know how to cover my loose hands where I really was careless. Here is your job serve more than once a person you are helping may not be paying u anything or your worth but it only a matter of time before you get referral and that’s when the other people will ask you how much you do so and so for.

 be honest, trustworthy, be open minded and tell your unpleasant if it comes to it.

People may be your gateway to your predicament and the same time they might use your situation and exploit you…  As desperate as you are, try to be a straight up person. I once saw a guy who helped a lot in our community, he would complain valid points to strangers about all the people he was helping and you can tell this causes stress and hate for this people but because they gave him something he kept it inside. I want to be honest I have been a victim of this as well ,I would do a number of work and the person I’m working for while I’m away hide some of the work so he/she could pay less. In times like this device a plan either count as u work or time their pay day and act accordingly because some money you don’t get .The other guy I was talking about he ended up being untrustworthy ,at night he will come and steal chickens for the people he work for. And even eggs, so this might also mean to people who rely to other people for their day to day please do right by them.

 Talk less, listen more .Help more and expect anything.

If this is not your professional work, don’t have much expectation, earlier on your goal should be to build relationships and see them prosper and if people don’t call you anymore don’t be mean about it. I remember I once worked as a garden boy for the first time in my life and I can still do it today. It was a flat with 12 tenants by then I already had different philosophies in my head and they contradict as well. So other people I will be good to them especially if their good to me, while others who don’t respect me I will be mean to them. I made my position clear I know my job description please don’t bother me ,but they all got patient with me and I grew to be able to help everyone expect one person who I hope I would’ve came around. There were different type of races there others try to protect me while others try to misuse me, but I found balance and I want you to find that’s within your community and organization.

Treat everyone like your future in-laws.

Can you do this? I learn this at my first high paying job at Toyota .if you don’t understand the colors of helmet what’s they represent from General Manager to a team member you’ll find yourself disrespecting your bosses boss. So what’s I did I learnt the company structure but still respect people like they were going to be promoted the following day .  The in-laws example is assuming the mother you meet in a taxi is going to be your mother in law one day, now imagine disrespecting that’s person. Obviously we are not built the same and people presentation shows what’s kind of respect they need, all you need to do is not be a arrogant person make room for people. I have a tendency of asking people, what’s skill do you have or what’s you good at because I know I can’t do much but I can pay for it. So now what’s if you were to show me your dark side? Chances we can’t get to that’s question.

Also help yourself in a process.

See you can help people and make money but you being the common denominator in all this, the question will be how are you helping yourself with this money? Maybe you are hurting yourself by consuming alcohol or you get paid by drugs .or maybe you have your own silly craving thatisn’t harmful yet it isn’t doing you any good. So help yourself getting out of those things ,it will be hard because those will be your vices and most of us have them and serious people don’t like people who work under substances .if you going to constantly ask for a cigarette while working that’s bad .

And the day I receive a message saying you’ve changed my life, I will have my life impacted as well in a way you cannot imagine.

How to position yourself for success

The thoughts you cultivate and the action’s you take with your time are most that’s matter (green links will lead you to related topics)

That’s all said than done, so I have to elaborate based on my lifestyle and people I have observed around the world the positive influencers and more. Success is different thing to different people like happiness we translate it differently but for this audience I want us to focus on success of having money being liquid and investing as well as ability to do what’s matter with your life and find meaning in it and maybe really enjoy it.

  1. What’s you think about most of the time.

Other like me years ago we don’t consider what’s exactly consume our minds, but I can assure you what’s consume our minds are what’s we read, watch and listen to and most importantly what’s we do. So to position you to success with little effort is to change the above things that are goes to your awareness and mind.

Dtox the producer who taught me the most about music was the one I listen to most of my 20s, I visited his studio and hang out even if there was nothing I needed, id go and chill because he is a little bit older than me everything he said as a friend was true and I didn’t argue at all.

That’s way I positioned myself to be a great music producer but it was not that’s easy I was luckily to have avoided his not good habits and without knowing it I only took what’s matter and leaved the ones that’s didn’t make sense to me. You might not be so lucky and friends feed you everything that’s you don’t have time to surf.

The most effective way I might be forgetting as influencing your mind is what you say ,when you talk to people the beliefs you share shows what’s goes on in your mind and the more you say it the more you reinforce it to your life ,no matter if it good or bad

2. What’s actions you automatically take (Habits)

Thoughts are things and that’s cannot be far from the truth, but other thoughts are nothing until you act on them those are the like of ideas, wishes, hopes and desires all of this requires a will to act on it and manifest it. It’s always recommended you do things everyday to transform them to habits and do them without thinking. But if all you do is think and chill then nothing will matter.

My example is I started music out of passion but I ended up needing to push myself to make beats and write songs and then later I ended up doing this effortlessly ,now this writing is hard sometimes but I have to keep doing it so I will go through dip and plateau and come out the other habit side.

If you’re automatic action is smoking and drinking then you will be stuck on those bad habits. If you change roads to your direction every time, you will miss the chance to be in one position where success will find you mastering.

3. Your beliefs and usage of your income

There is a saying that’s says to see what’s other person value look at where he spends his time and money. For now let’s focus on money, today I learnt or have something reinforced to me that’s formula ISS (invest, Save and Spend) this is a way to position yourself for financial success.

Lot to consider about the above statement like saying you are investing while maybe you are gambling or saying this is worth your time while it’s just a hobby it won’t have returns necessary for you to be able to invest.

Choose one thing and stick to it as your investment, when times get hard look at it objectively not emotionally and see where the problem is and try again and again.

Losing money is part of a business so as making it ,but if you don’t have a business or investments losing money might means being careless with it or you like to spend more than saving and investing so success is not possible in that’s case you got to change.

4.The app’s you use

In this day and age the writings should go with times and we cannot avoid the fact that’s other people spend more time on app’s than anything they do in their lives. Whatsapp ,Face book ,Twitter ,Reedit ,LinkedIn ,Google ,YouTube ,Qoura ,Vlc & other media players , games , websites ,Word press, pdf books and many more.

Since most of us have phones and it’s has been a source of income for most people as well and they do businesses in it. But other apps are pure bad waste of time and a sure way to position you for failure. I don’t want to tell you which are bad ones and which are good ones cause that’s is different for many people but like Mr. Robert Kiyosaki say Assets are what’s put money into your pocket and Liability takes money out of your pocket, games and in-purchase live in it take money and time in your life it doesn’t seem like a good thing especially when you are an adult.

 For parents this can work well in your favor by controlling game usage in your house you can use it as a reward to your kids after they have done something positive within the day, that’s be reading a personal development book, watching a how to video and actually seeing your kid acting on an idea maybe that’s might mean no games at all just pure fun in work and talent.

There are apps that’s are really good for your productivity ,like the to-do list app and screen time recorder to keep tap of how many hours you are using on your phone.

There is nothing wrong with using a phone but for me and other people alike there should be positive returns as money or value added into our lives. You might say you are a trader and you use a trader app all the time but if you cannot separate it from your real life than there must be a problem.

Same as saying you are pushing on face book maybe your brand but you are busy destructed and find yourself engage in people’s posts that’s has nothing to do with why you are there.

5. Morning rituals

This message of morning tasks has come to me in different ways. Do your beds first thing every day so you will create habit out of it, take a bath too or read a chapter or so before getting out of bed of a biography or a good book. Wake up at the same time every day.

All this are good advices I also have found that’s having the tasks being planed the night before is more effective and your day has a 60%- 90% to being successful so I also write things I need to do maybe one thing in details and in the morning before my mind give me reason’s not to do the task I move so fast and get it done.

This might be hard for most people who over think things and that’s okay I have aspects of my life where taking things slow is better like the process of buying a big purchase like a house or a car or anything that’s require thousands of cash I try to show concern but yet not rush about it.

But when it comes to doing those tasks get them out of my way I move fast unless if I’m making a point to other party whoever it may be. I don’t give in to procrastination here is why you shouldn’t as well when a planning a task there are unforeseen consequences that’s may lead you to finishing the task the following day and if you already delayed the process of starting then this task will end up taking 3 days, where first day you busy wasting time thinking about it and second day starting it and be stopped because of a materiel shortage or anything and third day where you finish the job.

Today I learnt that’s what’s you start with you do well, this really made sense to me because look at today’s article it’s the first thing I did and I’m sure there is a lot of value in it. Now imagine I wrote this later in a day the results may have been not so good but you wouldn’t notice.

For this information to work in your life you need to find your own truth in it. Oppose all you like I’m not a super Google kind of person I have flaws as well I’m just sharing my realizations and what’s had work best for me and the lesson’s I have found worth sharing.

Be so smart that’s you read the BS in this article and dismiss it ,my goal is to have you hooked in our content that’s its changes your life to the point that’s you recommend us to some of your friends instead of trying to explain all of this to them. It’s better to lead a cow to drink water then holding it head with that’s said we are not cow’s we are people thanks for spending time with us.

Why self discipline is so hard

Today’s article is inspired by my own procrastination ,its Friday today and my post is late by 3hrs .There is no excuses for not delivering in time it’s all based on the lack of myself discipline ,because I’m going through this right now I can easily see the challenges causing it.

  1. Laziness and excuse artists

Hard important things are not easy to do, the easy things to do you do them without thinking and the things that’s you have habit of doing comes easy. But new one’s like writing this blogs earlier on its easy and exciting but as I keep going enthusiasm get low and the only thing that’s can keep me of float is myself discipline.

Being lazy is common drag and waste time doing shinny things or things that’s won’t have any results. I have had time today to be in a place of physical work and its easy to see things that’s will make a huge impact there but one guy was busy cutting corners in a serious job you need to discipline yourself to avoid doing too much housekeeping and less productive work cause your supervisor will notice you and make sure you are the 1st to go when times are hard.

Excuses are the killer of self discipline that’s why they are negatively affective, if you don’t do something important and have a reason why you don’t do it then you are safe. But in reality you will be legging behind and excuses never shows up when it’s time to show some productivity and time keeps spinning.

So what’s you need to do every time you find a reason to do something, just do it or do nothing and see what’s will happen. Here is an example you have a task that’s you need to do and you are craving TV series rather than choosing the latter ,decide to do nothing if you get bored do the important task then after that’s it will open the window after you have finished it to actually enjoy the series.

2. Its require endurance and a goodwill

Watching a TV series produced by 50 cent called For Life, the starring shows a serious courage from being a convict to becoming a lawyer since he was arrested for the thing he didn’t do. He endured and disciplined himself to read hard law books and  started appealing to court and helping other inmates like him ,while he is trying to get the files of his own case and people behind this scandal haven’t give up and they suppress all his efforts but he doesn’t give up.

That’s discipline on steroids maybe there are no consequences of not doing what you supposes to do but trust me there are always those underneath but maybe it’s not like the above story where all odds seems to be against you.

Life on its own is hard add something that’s you suppose to do everyday then its way harder. Employers have to constantly motivate their workers to love and see value in their work and after few year add a little drip but worker still finds reason’s to strike and do all sorts of inefficiency they can get its end up being a habit that’s people needs pep talk and the problem starts when a person try to start his or her own business and have to motivate himself and his worker’s.

So self discipline is hard but the reason for that’s is we don’t know that there is such thing, our why’s are lame the strong one’s are through nature like having a kid now imagine hustling for your child and focusing on bettering his life and end up forgetting about yours and not knowing how your child will turn out is a real mystery that’s why the discipline should come from within and your north star be your better self.

3. Its needs giving up the good stuff

Delaying gratification is a normal thing for people who are successful and those who are going to be .It’s hard to not eat your favorite food so you can stay on shape, it’s hard to save more than 10% so you can achieve your financial goals earlier, it’s hard to maintain the relationship schedule to make your love life work on your busy life but that’s what’s you need to do to get all of the above right.

Person who is going to make it in what’s ever he or she is doing avoids distractions, also avoids shinny things and trends and most importantly don’t try to impress other people they know what’s their doing is more important to their lives than a friend opinion.

Showing up is what’s its takes to start going in a right direction, the physical work I’m talking about since I work for myself I have a tendency of showing up whenever I like but I do what’s I can when I get there, I can try to do more and wake up early but I believe in effectiveness and lie to myself that’s I’m using the 80/20 rule. I know I can come early and leave late and fool around all the time or just come at 10 and work hard for 3 hours then leave until I reach my target.

4. No one or few people practice it.

Worker’s constantly come late at work be different, at church no one likes to start a song be different, in class no one likes to give the teacher the answer be different, no one wants to play midfielder take that’s position and master it. In most cases you can be the opposite of what’s most people are doing and do what’s they hate and win in life that’s all it takes.

Don’t be scared of other people actually build a system for yourself to not be scared of people ,my uncle is better at this I know him he was a cop and people became his friends. He’s famous and can get along with anyone his discipline to master that’s skill and ability to make a small talk has became handy in his own life, he was an investigator and people were open to him a shared what’s they knew, maybe you may argue that’s he learnt this at police academy but I may respond the discipline to apply those tools is what’s important.

I learn the people’s skill by practicing it and once I move away from people for the long period of time I found myself beginning to be an introvert which is not a good trait for person who is ambitious like me.

5. The audience  put some pressure

I will start by saying show people you’re positive traits as soon as you can, you hard working ethics and more. Show that’s side of you so it won’t be like you are changing all of the sudden, or you will have spectator’s that’s won’t do you any good.

The remarks and gossips and who said what’s about you ,why you are working so hard and so on try to be in a space where this is not too much. You need it to guide you but if it all you get then you are bound to be stopped in your tracks. People you need are those who are engaged like you in something this are winner’s .ever since I started something most business people has gave me courage and great influence and positivity.

One said you charging too low ,other said I see you one day having a million rand and that’s really caught me off guard but it’s meant a lot and I’m positive I will get there and I’m working towards it so hard and the understanding I have is there are conventional ways of doing things and there are really business savvy ways all hard work but require self discipline.

Thanks for catching up with us, LnM we are nothing without you keep grooming yourself and win. I don’t consider myself a motivation talker or something like that’s .i am a practical person and sometimes when I give an advice people don’t take it because its requires self discipline like the other day my little brother who stays with my father said he wants’ 4k so he can trade  but he don’t have it.

I told him to save and skip his birthday celebration this year and on December forget about new clothes because all this require discipline he came back and suggested what’s if he sells his laptop?

I figure I don’t have to answer that it’s what’s app and nothing he can see anyway. So if you ask a person an advice be sure you really needs it and respect that person enough to argue and tell why this advice won’t work for you than going to look for another crazy plan and present it to him/ her. If you knew what’s you were going to do why bother other people?

Naivety is a real challenge to beginner entrepreneur

 Having no mentor and really trying to make my business work. 1st thing you can never master easy is people, people are unpredictable and those people involve scammers, fake vendors and bad customers. We going to talk about things that’s will really give a young business person a problem starting out ,but I’m not saying give up remember we talked about anticipation ,that’s what I want you to do expect the unexpected.

Not mastering your number and winging it

This has hurt me so badly even now as we speak, I built rental rooms from the scratch just because I saw I have money decided to go to a hardware and get building material and buy a site. While first I was supposed to do my numbers well and plan accordingly but I was so aggressive and with that’s force I manage to overcome all the stumbling blocks, while losing a lot of money because of my impatient.

This approach still hurt me till today but I’m getting better at waiting and really do things slowly ,calculate and see what’s may happen. I never factor the handling fees and taxis that’s raise to 15% the year following the one I bought material and my being forceful worked on my favor.

Thinking people are all the same.

The neighbors  I made building this rooms were sweethearts but only one was really not good but we ended up getting along cause I was busy reading books that’s told me to really open up to people and let them show how they want to be perceived. Scammers are still scamming me ,and my awareness is growing to the point that’s as of writing this article I’m looking to make enemies ,for the first time in my life I am plotting to put some people behind bars because they did me wrong.

Maybe I have mentioned this before but I was naïve letting my builder take 80% of his payment before he even begun building and I learn the hard way now I don’t trust anyone a contractor must do the work first I ended up going to court and they kept asking money from me and I decided I will let this one slide. Its clear lawyers are important when doing business but as I’m starting out I cannot invest on a lawyer.

Another naïve thing a entrepreneur can think is customers love him ,that not true customers consider a lot of things but you can build that’s emotional friendship with them because when prices change they can find it hard to leave you. Add your personal feel to your business and so on.

Entrepreneurship is fun

Maybe having an idea is fin and maybe big purchases at some point 10 years or 20 years down the line is fun, but earlier on that’s not the case. My older brother smokes a terrible drug that’s makes him steal a lot and he is really negatively affect my hustle, but for you reading you may experience a different issue. You may have to work harder than everyone and you are the last man to put our fires in your business or what’s ever you doing that’s makes you money.

Since your income fluctuate relationships doesn’t work well but on that’s part you really need some sort of discipline because not paying bills on time is a bad habit so killing it should be your business.

Possible dearth

I don’t know when people start businesses that’s they consider dearth but since I have witness it last year a market shop owner being shot dead while trying to stop thugs from stealing the money and  they beat the guy that’s was there. Be ready to die for your thing as I have explained above I’m about to build enemies and I cannot let it go cause this is a once off opportunity to put some people in the right place.

And if I feel threatened after this I may act accordingly, I know this is my foot print but this is how far I want to go for my entrepreneurship to work. At the end of the tunnel there is light if I don’t get there the foundation is laced my boys will continue.

Money behavior, handling and its owner

This seems to be the reason for us to start businesses but it end up going beyond this and how can it not. When it comes to molar earlier on its seems to sleep through hands so as a business person learning to save when times are good will be a right step to a right direction.

Diversify and or diversify within your business but never lose direction to what’s really makes you a lot of money. I thought the money I had will last forever and the way I recorded down anything its shows that’s its didn’t matter cause I would explain to the next person why I was recording my expenses and it’s always seems like I’m spending only earlier on.

I learn from Gary veer that’s if you start a business and you don’t make any money within the 1st year you should reconsider the business you in. The Music business I just like that’s so for you reading taking those advices should also mean doing your homework  and be sure does the advice apply to me and look at other big players that’s at your stage where were they in the money part.

Be careful of banks as much as they keep the money safe ,the products they offer may not apply to your beliefs life the debts can be good starting out but people are not the same and if customers pay you in some sort of way ,you don’t want to have debt lapsing because you income is beyond your control. Teaching consumers how you want them to pay you can be really be challenging but you must go ahead and tell them besides their differences for e.g. say you in a service business to not get yourself in a defensive side ,take your money first then help after.

Government and Taxes

I’m already on this because although I’m still at the beginning stage of my business life .being on the right side of SARS and ALL the IRS is going to be good for me and my businesses. Because you don’t want to make a lot of money and all of a sudden SARS freezes your bank account and you cannot perform the competitors make fun of you.

The infrastructures putted in place for entrepreneurs  by government you should be able to access them that’s means your rates should be intact ,and to be honest my electric bills was out of place but I have dealt with them because I cannot keep looking out for my shoulder that’s will open up for any negativity and my mind space.

That’s the business will work no matter what’s, you won’t fail

Massive challenge came at the beginning of my hustle and I gave up like literary and started focusing on my other capabilities. Like knowing how to manage people’s money and help them with their general needs. That’s work well for me but for a time being, while I was still looking for a job.

So as you are reading be open to the possibility of your business failing but don’t encourage that’s event. Other people switch businesses so fast they don’t check what’s cause the 1st , 2nd and third business failed in the first place and try to fix that’s. Even I I didn’t totally give up, I kept the distance while trying to figure out how I can solve the problem.

When things go wrong you get emotionally so be careful to taking big decisions during that’s time. So accepting and admitting if you have part in a failure is the good move, get back to your life and then come back stronger.

My experience so far dealing with people and what’s you can learn

It’s fairly hard to contemplate the fact that’s in order to win in life you need to learn to deal with people. Maybe I made a mistake leaving my business to someone else and only visit for important issues but all I know is the best decision I have ever done for myself. Today I had an incident and my people don’t understand that entrepreneurs or business people go through much hardship compare to what’s reach them in the bottom but that’s why their people and that’s why there are business people no disrespect though.

People wants attention

I have kept distance from people am serving and they can feel it, they don’t know why but I know if I’m not attached to them I can do my work properly and plan towards the future. The attention they need is real and necessary, I once left for a while and one night I came and find it was dark outside and no one is supposed to operate in darkness in 21st century so I fixed that’s. Today a big incident to them happened but to me it was nothing new bill was starting and they could wrap it around their heads it’s happened out of the blue. But for me as a business person I’m always ready to put out fire.

They hardly listen, especially if the agenda is theirs

As I was dealing with the situation I recently mentioned, my vise person later explained why the meeting was the way it was and why this people didn’t want to take responsibility. They misdirected me after the realization that’s I wasn’t hard on them, they didn’t study subtle signs from my opening speech that’s I’m not their enemy and I’m doing what’s best for them. As soon as I finished what’s I was saying they attacked the whole effort I was putting and I eventually felt bad and felt I missed my money.

Luckily my vice know this people very well and told me, they’re lying because they don’t want change. For the 1st time I saw sometimes being gentle backfire, it was my first time dealing with them and they already try to take advantage of me. They didn’t listen to my intro and they had their own agenda that’s they want to see come ahead and they succeeded but for few minutes until my vice lady told me what’s I didn’t know.

They never get satisfied

From the richest man in the world Mr. Jeff Bezos, he knew this earlier on that’s as a company that’s they should offer things to people before they realize they need it , that’s pure innovation because people will not settle for unchanging markets they move on with the hottest thing. This also apply to those people in a form of customers, workers or board the few individuals who can’t adapt to change or they don’t like something and they think you may just change the whole thing. If half of people have a same complain maybe that’s can be something to consider but one or two people are not enough. In my case above they all resist to the change, but it’s a necessary change and they know it, they just mad because it’s going to cost them. If I let it slide today then municipality will be on my case so they should understand and learn to live with it.

They want to be lead

Leadership is a position that’s will be always there, because people like to follow and be directed. I didn’t intentionally choose to lead some people but it’s I have been doing all my life or at least since grade 11 now I’m older and some people want me to do that’s job. There’s a thin line now, if you want my natural expertise you need to pay for it.

They constantly want pep talk and motivation if the is a vision, they want to feel their important. Today one of my dreams really came true but I just realize that’s now as I’m writing this, my dream is to address people on something important many people though. But I did  address them although I wasn’t effective because its felt like my 1st time and no preparations on my way there I was trying to figure what’s to say and I made a mistake and  talked 1st but I saw them kept quiet but I will get better.

You will never figure people 100%

People are easy to deal with but you as a person who might be in a position of power or you want to control the conversation and affection you need to strengthen yourself ,mindset and approach all the humility should be on you cause it’s very important to never forget that’s you are a person as well. Look for the books by dell Carnegie on how to win friend and influence people. As we as 25 laws of dealing with people by John Maxwell I don’t know if my title is right there but John Maxwell is your man.

Know sometimes you will miss the mark and you constantly need to practice dealing with people. Listen to them and know they’re your greatest assets in the most things you do. Love them and know they are like you after all.

What are 5 things that artists do right?

Hunger

Dedication

Learning

This one was obvious for me today looking at posts on face book of people trying to make money out of artists by saying what’s they do wrong and what’s they should do. You see I’m an artist and I get offended when this fake PR talk all they want on social media and this gurus want to be and take a picture with a Celebrity so it will seems like they know what’s their talking about. So this is my heads-up to everyone watching this channel at the moment we not planning to ask money from you and when or if we decide to do so it will come from a place of virtue and principles and respect we have for people… I don’t see you as a number or a like that why we can bump in to each other and talk although tension will be there but that normal .If you as a rapper or Kwaito or house Dj feel like you cannot trust a person claiming to know much about your industry trust your guts and don’t do business with him/her.

Apologies for that long intro let’s get down to business, what’s we did right when we started out and what’s you doing right already. Before I jump to it ,it’s important to remind you to subscribe to our channel by clicking that red subscribe button maybe you’ve been here before and thought yourl never come back here you are and we resonate with you give us a shot . LnM Show by ULwaz No Makhula we not gurus we artists you can check us out ,our songs and Music Video we share insight in terms of our experience and knowledge.

  1. Artists and Producers like to improve themselves.

You see maybe not everyone but every producer I know took some time to master his craft and everyone following will do the same ,it’s become natural it a must to learn new tricks as a Producer listening to other beat makers and mixing engineers doing amazing stuff you say I gatta learn that and you do. Watch Tutorials, read some notes or purely experiment. So I want to congratulate producers keep up the good work. I don’t know what’s value you will find in this episode but for me I felt the need of gratitude hope yourl learn what’s to do as well if you just starting out. Artists improve their writing and they can be conscious of their content and try to deliver what’s people can understand we want to say great work guys that the way. I remember the group from eNanda called double 7 , decided to feature Mphako on a track and after past years of beef and it got squashed a hardcore track was going to create some subliminal so they did a great concept about amaphupho meaning dreams they want to achieve in music which became a huge track featuring a vocalist that what’s industry needs bafwethu  keep it up.

  • 2 Matured artists know the right people and use them.

This is the big boys stuff, you see moving to point number one this one come to mature everything I just mentioned basically Point number 1 is just to reduce work and be able to be independent, this one makes you a master because you know who write you a song, who mixes it, who master it and who distribute it then your job becomes recording it only then lets the pros take off the load on your back. We encourage you to become matured quickly and don’t try to be anything only focuses on that thing that has higher upside.

Take risks , study people your better life depends on it.

  • 3 Some artists master the skill of performance.

In this one I’m guilty, how do you do this it’s simple but not easy. Here is how I did it if I know I have a new songs that I would love people to see me perform I practice them every night until the day of performance come. I open the beat read my script and recite my verses song by song put my verses aside until I know the songs well without a script ,and then Il sung them during the day at work in my head  just keep track of them. On that I stand up act like there’s mic on my hand and picture the crowd of people singing with me .After all this I’m 99% that I’m going to kill the crowd in kwaito is so easy master the dance moves lyrics is just 4 lines repeated so yah not all artists only few with unknown songs master this but we celebrate their hard work today syabonga.

  • 4 Artists Respects one another.

Here is what’s I like about our music community we know one another and we respect one another. We see beefs on mainstream but we know it’s for show business so you know deep down they know each other’s place. We may be criticized because we used drugs sometimes but we rarely try to harm one another it’s only a healthy competition in everything we do. Even those beefs and diss don’t reach physical fights so we should appreciate that behavior and encourage it to keep going. Respect and Trust goes a long way in every society but we know some categories of the industry tries to separates up , like media and companies as well as awards nowadays the aim behind them is fortune and bribery that why mostly we don’t participate because drama may not good for our physo even if its seems to be good for business but sleeping at night is much better.

  • 5  Value the platforms they’re given.

We might have an ego or pride now or realization of not wanting to perform for free but every stage we got back then was a hope of getting a recognition but that no longer a case, but as artists we value the platforms we are given and we don’t take them for granted so I want to give thumps up to artists who really show appreciation to people who give them platform. And those who exploit artists shame on you. But as a rule of thumb it’s important to give that community radio at least R50 because you don’t know what’s they give him so yah .humility play a huge role in anyone’s life. Look after people who look after you and when it’s strictly business don’t mix it with pleasure.

It has come to the part I hate the most , of leaving now assuming there is a kid who watched this video as well I want to tell you boy or girl life is not bad things only and it’s not good things only but you have to try a look for the good and make more of it , having money is good so be aware now people with no money and don’t take their advice to heart about money than those with money listen attentively ,this applies to music don’t mind a manager who doesn’t have a track record of managing successful artists and thinks he can tell you or she can tell you something. Do your thing and take advice from experts and people who are where you want to be. Now I didn’t say press a notification bell so please do and don’t forget to follow us on all social media as ULwaz No Makhula this is LnM show its time for that Bonus.

  • 6 They can open doors for one another without expecting recognition.

If artists were another form of species I would’ve said most of them they are incredible species, as much as we don’t do this often but it does happen, we Saw Zakwe putting on Duncan and Zuluboy putting Zakwe and so on, in Gospel Thina Zungu been putting artists .Dj Tira has a huge successful company as well as Oskido till this day they put on artists to help them feed their families with talent god has given them. Only thing we want to add to our friends don’t expect this as your strategy to succeed put in the work and look for your own path to success hope this episode wasn’t that lame but valuable and its show that in life and media there is less Thank you and appreciation of what’s we have achieved as human being, they push the negative stuff only that why we recommend if you are an artist you must not watch TV and listen to radio. You cannot be a actor and a spectator choose a side Thanks, goodbye.

6 Reason why artists don’t make money

Welcome to another episode of LnM Show, this segment we going to focus on the driven force of our society money, but strictly to music artists why don’t get it….We were guilty of this as well at the beginning and sometimes we get tempted to ease up but have found a way to discipline ourselves to treat music as strictly business. Disclaimer not all artists are not making money and some of us we are not making what we suppose to so take our points with consideration. The aim of this show is to open your eyes as an aspiring artist and make you realize that there is nothing you will ever enjoy more than your passion so you might as well get paid for it.

  1. We are hooked by burning passion.

Before  we explain take a second and Press a follow button , thank you .1stly its easy for us to talk about ins and out of music because we in it so we literary talking from experience as you will see our music videos if you look at our channel. Now lets us Elaborate what’s we mean passion hooked us. We love what’s we do to the point that for as long as we performed money will follow one day ,which is the day that will never come so we suggest you add value to your brand and start acting like an artist not a want to be or a student of music. Ask for your money to promoters and other artists who want to feature you because you have done so and so to make yourself worth so much politely take it or leave it. For years we preformed for free and as that is needed at the beginning its shouldn’t exceed 5 years or even less unless it a hobby and you already have money , we realized we were paying for everything we did either with our time or with money so we needed it back with interest. ULwaz sometimes forget and try to be nice on people then Makhula remind us of our vision and that we will not get there if we keep wasting petrol and money to attend shows that make other people rich disregarding the person who’s actually doing the work.

  • 2 We are not business savvy.

I think we are still guilty of this point which is our weakness but if you are a business person don’t try to take advantage loll. What’s we mean is we don’t know business ,we are winging it as we were winging it from the beginning but what’s important for you is to be aware of your weaknesses and get help don’t sign endorsement deals on your own. Don’t perform at a big concert where you have to sign and sign that like you signing a autograph. I learn from Zakes Bantwini sharing his story that he once preformed on the same stage with Usher, in the documents they signed Usher has requested some matt that he will use and our Zakes saw the stage being ripped apart before he got in quickly as the light went off for Ushers exit, he tried complaining it was too late he didn’t request the matt and he signed the contract. We all know he learnt and improve now we don’t have to repeat that same mistake. All I know about being business savvy is knowing the basic of numbers, in music it’s important to know how to calculate % I know at Samro we rob each other but we hardly get don’t royalties anyway because it’s hard to put music on radio so we really don’t know how a percentage work as for us we are now aware about that too. 2% of R2 000 000  = R40 000 not bad neh loll we don’t know who will be getting the rest and why so how I got R40 000 it’s an old formula we forgot after school pay attention its goes like this. R2 000 000 x 2 / 100 = R40 000 .this is the basic and most important.

  • 3 They don’t attract money.

Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will. We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.

Mr Nelson Mandela

Others say its takes money to make money, that one way to do it. Secondly for a artist to make money there’s a way to attract it. 1stly you should look deserving of money as an artist by spending money on your appearance or at least pictures you send out should be clean and you clean in it. Act like a Celebrity but don’t live like it on your day to day you will be broke. Buy clothes for your performance and do photo shoot, do hair and if you like bling add it, it doesn’t have to be too much, so when a person looks at you will automatically know this guy will want money. Then here is the secret if someone wants to book you let him say the offer 1st so you will be able to negotiate maybe he values you more than you value yourself or just read a book called negotiating without splitting a difference.

  • 4 We don’t know the roads to money.

Okay this is more like an example but it basically knows which streams to invest in that will make you make more money in return no matter how small you have putted in. Where you spend your time as an artist is also important because that will make you valuable what’s do we mean , let’s say you are Dj Tira its wouldn’t make a business sense to always eat your meat at Eyadini Lounge which by the time you are booked there people have had enough of you. Do go there once in a while as a social call but for you Shisanyamas are your place of business that your road that bring you moola if you know what I mean is. Do a mind calculation if you have some cash to invest in music to which will yield a better ROI- Return On Investment, do I bet on radio or tv then you have to decide looking at if your genre is played more on TV or radio, do I put this on clothes that is branded or I boost my page on face book then you look if you have fans who will buy your t-shirts and then earn some profit and go hard in boosting your videos on youtube.

  • 5 You Make money you just do know how to keep it.

Not being able to keep money somehow or at least create a cash flow with it is more like a handicap because you will always blow through your money every time you get it and wonder why you end up in content like this. Personally I know people who do make money through music then drink it through alcohol and drugs that not a problem but the question remains who is going to keep investing on maintain your music life cause you have to be relevant to keep getting more gigs and you have to have a hot song that is well marketed to the public to get a shot of competing .Even though we don’t like the word compete but somehow we still use the same mediums to send music to the public and the person at the top of the chart is doing all of the positives above. Expensive clothes has nothing to do with your brand as an artist so you better start printing your own and make money while you at it.

Well that it for today we know you got insights, that why we would appreciate it if you share this video on your twitter and face book and what app groups and be our ambassador by doing that and we will keep giving everything we know that could help, subscribe on our channel for this kinds of Videos and music Videos, Press Notification Bells too… LnM Show simply means ULwaz No Makhula Show we out with our Bonus point habe…

Our No 1 Hit

  • 6 Their Team is working against them.

Managers, Producers, Camera guy, Driver and Fellow studio mates and those guys who like to hang out in the studio. This people are important but and big but they might be the ones who are holding you back ,you see the way money is splitted after the gig or that celebration for the launch or those chicks that were called by your hang out friend and you ended up taking one with you and the next morning you went to Shisanyamas you guys seems like you are living a dream already if that not a music video where you just fronting then your team isn’t handling your career well and the manager isn’t doing the management work. In most cases it’s been said that take full control of your life but in this point I say check your surrounding the people who came to your life for another intension now their totally doing something else.

Than lets end this with you , you are the centre of everything as much as we are a group with Makhula I have my perspective he has his own then we collaborate and considerate for one another do you do that with your team ,there should be some compromise in place sacrificing parties you not a celeb yet so calm down and be seen at home rather than your mother or grandma complain about music while it’s you , be reliable at home and get blessings when you went out to gigs cause you come back home sourber.

  • Artists don’t talk about it.

Artists don’t talk about money, while they wake up everyday use it and work for it in 9-5 .Here is the lesson talk about things you want to end up having them… because the fact that’s you not talking about it , also means you don’t thing about it and thus you cannot make it in music or anywhere for that’s matter. Talk, Think, Ask and be money to have it . I have a hard time sometimes dealing with other rappers telling me as Dj Swing that’s they don’t have money or its hard to get money or I’m young and I’m still in school… I want to be clear here if you want our services you need to first think how you going to pay us before even talking to us. We also value paying forward because its where our success comes from as ULwaz No Makhula we don’t plan and not talk about how we going to pay for our dreams to become a reality or otherwise that’s will be stupid of us ,and really time wasting thing to do. So please take your work seriously and sorry if I was a bit hush here but I hate the fact that’s its took me so long to realize why people are broke in every place in South Africa is because they don’t worry about the most important in the world money . Even those who looks rich and have things , they don’t have money in the bank and their being charged overdraft fee for being lazy to pay attention to their money , And I’m not perfect either as a artist and a friend I kept studying money and made a mistake of not doing what’s really is a habit of making
