How to properly make use of your mind

The first title of today’s topic was why you should have a bigger cause in life, but that’s might not get the point right. Mind is the only driving factor in your life and if you can pay attention to it, you can manipulate it to your own ways, rather than allowing emotions dictates your decisions. Now without waste of time I will explain in point form ,but before I start make sure you follow this blog so you won’t miss any information that’s might impact you positively.

Learn to connect the dots with your mind by looking and listening

I have discover a skill of making sense of many things from watching a TV series ,or reading a book and so on ,and I can only do this with my mind . Maybe you have done this before without knowing its valuable human skill so I will make you an example.

If you watch a Tyler Perry movie and a woman have an affair and break a heart of a honest husband, and later on the story shows the wife being sexually abused by her father. But Tyler doesn’t explain that’s the wife has more sexually eagerness than his husband and doesn’t show much the affect of working long hours and don’t give your partner enough attention and lastly for a wife to not open up to his husband in every aspect of their relationship then as I’m watching I get all those lessons .

If you don’t pay attention and can’t connect the dots, you will miss the point of a important lesson in your life.

Listen, Look and try to remember things when you are in a situation. Personally I have made missteps in life and still do even today .But fighting with my mind and trying to do the right thing all the time is not easy but to be a great and a good person you need to overcome the bad thoughts.

See as males some of us find ourselves in rock bottom and in that’s state we can make the most terrible things if we don’t learn to be mindful of our minds for example seeing a little girl and think you can take advantage of her, the uncles at home who has hard life and smoke and all this stuff, they need purpose in life and need help because once they become stuck they are potential problems in a society.

The aunts that’s you can find being soliloquy have a negative potential of destroying peoples marriages they are not crazy but the society is sidelining them and they are lost in their minds as well no one seems to care but if we can as a community try to revive one another spirits and constantly motivate one another we can solve the cases we hear on TV and radio.

Teach your mind that’s working is part of life

Never for a minute think life is worth it without working, even bosses work and much harder than their employees. So if you are a fan of or blog know we are working every time we release a new piece.

The only correction we can make in the concept of working, working is not only hard labor ,but most important side of working is working through using your mind ,it can be calculation ,strategizing ,write ,read and publish ,plan and hold effective meetings , negotiate  and so on that’s really work and from all this you can see this is all mind work.

But picking heavy stuff and doing hard repetitive work is also fine but don’t be stuck in that’s while working, in order for you to not be complacent you should work towards something big or what you are passionate about.You cannot escape working, because having a dull day is also work and personally I happen to have those days because I can push so much as well, then sit back and reflect. The decisions you make are part of work and not taking decision is work you don’t want to do.

Feed your mind

This is no brainer if you’ve been here before , you know we are advocate of learning and reading books , I found myself loving to learn more than average person and its has became a habit to me. Then one day I watched a video on my favorite channel on YouTube called success TV, they said if you are passionate about learning you will never succeed, because you are learning for entertainment rather than learn to apply things in your life or business.

Chances are I don’t even have a business and now I have became a motivational speaker because of my learning without any track of success. The point is learn to grow and apply lesson’s in your life try to be a different person every year, personally I have learnt and unlearnt things that’s were not working for me. So it’s also important to pick and choose don’t live your life by the book make your own choices from authors two sense.

Meditation

I won’t talk much on this subject, I find it hard for now but I have used it and found myself having a nice sleep. Meditating is a way to look at your thoughts from another person’s sand point and don’t act into them while trying to quiet them with mantra technique ,which is repeating one or two words over and over e.g. I AM or Your name act until you get to a peaceful state. Get the advice of Buda on this subject and other’s this is basic for me.

This also means controlling your emotions meaning controlling your thoughts, think before you answer and at least take 48hr before acting on your anger.

Control your consumption and your surrounding

At home they know I don’t watch TV and it’s something I committed myself to doing after hearing that’s successful people don’t have time for it. Now the content I watch that’s a TV program is really a recommendation that’s has education in it other than that’s I’m not interested.

My mom has a tendency to call me when I pass by when there is a crappie thing on TV and she knows I cannot stand that’s and after this realization , I started to understand my own subconscious mind ,if something is not going well in my  business I don’t sleep well . If I have a serious fight with a family member it’s hard for me to sleep well, don’t to mention love relationship really mess with me.

So I have develop to deal with situations and not get into deep to soon and started to watch something else before I sleep so my subconscious mind will record that’s unimportant thing than I can sleep well.

Listening to Mr. Robert Green talking about human nature ,he talks about being truthful about yourself and also realize that’s everyone in life is an actor and as a person you should be the best actor for your role. Have a self control and so on, and realize that the life game is social and people are important part of puzzle so get along with people.

I have lost couple of gf’s because I was too transparent and too honest and girls don’t like that’s and that my own view. Now I will be working on my old approach of being a regular guy, because if I get serious too soon they can’t handle it. In closing be aware of the type of person you are and give the respect people deserve that’s you will like given to you.

Well if I was in a conference and you were listening and taking notes, I would’ve stopped you from taking notes because I feel people they practice what they usually practices in lecture classes and worse they won’t revise this ones.

I would suggest listen to my talk then when you get to the office or home write down what’s you remember and that’s what’s you will use in your life ,the lesson you resonated with.

It’s important to find yourself bored sometimes

We are living in a noisy era and I can add it’s been like this for many centuries before this one but we can all agree that’s its getting worse. It’s important to get back to the surface and accepts times of boredom, it may seems like Lockdown was the worst thing that’s has happened in our lifetime but I assure you it’s the best thing, you can start looking at your life objectively.

If things are going smooth during times like this its means you on a right path but if you are hit a bit than that a wakeup call. From financial stand point its clearly means diversifying your investment might be a smart move. Personally you can start practice things like meditations and gym and really incorporate those on your life. Learn mantra’s and all, this are tools to deal with boredom at a highest level and really pay attention to your thoughts.

What’s your life manstra? we all need one of those

If you get too busy, make time to do nothing

You see this is not a public information, no one suggests this in their writings and YouTube videos. It’s all grind and hard work now, that’s ok and but I suggests you get in a zone to be at that’s work mode state so you can switch from your work life, home life and your own physic personal life that’s is at individual level. The phone might be the 1st thing you might need to control and really cut it usage during this time.

I have eliminated the noise on my phone and I constantly find myself bored every moment and then something amazing happen I only think the thoughts that will propel me forward in life. That’s might not happen to you because the content you consume with your busy time and people you hang with don’t put any good information to your mind , you might want to change that’s as well so you will have good ideas and breakthrough during this boredom time.

Having pen and paper always in your disposal can be really be helpful , and don’t think sleeping put you in a mode of doing nothing that’s not true ,your body and mind is always busy and create dreams and nightmare at night mess with your heartbeat a bit.

You will see you have a negative habits when you are bored

I experienced this, if you have extra cash at hand you hurt yourself with it, but if you have a strong will power and discipline you are able to choose apples over hot dog to buy and eat that’s moment. Same to boredom, access to porn or movies and internet entertainment can lead you to want to spend your time doing those things in your free time you set to do nothing. I suggest you fight this urges that’s drives you to want to relax this way. I repeat hit pushups and go hard and couple of sets, play a self-improvement audiobook while you are doing that’s. To those who smokes I know you guys always have something to pass time and that’s not nothing , don’t roll that’s blunt even a snap is way better to your doing nothing time but make sure it doesn’t fall to lazy time. If you have something to do during your nothing time and its urgent please do it and make up for that’s loss time. Hanging out with gents or ladies and talking might seems good at the moment but it will mess with all your growth and beliefs.

Something fascinate me, I have a friend we used to be close really close but since I evolve and grow from every aspect of my life, he no longer want to hang with me the pressure I put on him is too much and I understand and that became a blessing in disguise because instead of going to hang with him I listen to audio book or be busy in my music studio work. Now I have learned to mix my songs because that’s used to be his work but since he no longer want to see me then I keep my distance.

Other friend of mine bought dogs and now I’m scared of dog’s .I don’t like them but it’s nothing personal so I can’t visit that’s friend as well and others are far from where I live so ,now I’m responsible for the company coming into my life because I’m no longer going anywhere. I want you reading to pay attention to all of those who you try to squeeze yourself in their lives, is it worth it. Obviously friendship is nice and important, but now since there is a new distance you can also distance yourself emotionally, sometimes we help our friends because we know their daily routine but now since there is this gab when he/ she needs help its won’t be coming from a friend stand point, that’s might be a way for that’s person to use you on something that’s no longer exist.

You can be able to be proactive rather than reactive

If you can learn this skill alone to accept boredom, you can stop reacting to other peoples reasons for you to get out, you can plan things ahead and really take charge of most of your actions. And this time can open a window for you to re-access what’s really working and where your efforts is spent.

I started writing this blogs , while I had a nice job where I stay inside my work place and go at home only in weekends ,finish work at 16:00 every day ,I’ll hit a gym ,cook ,bath and write then when I sleep I put an interesting TV series that’s will help me fall asleep. Now I’m no longer at that’s job, I’m home now and my life is back and I can do everything I want with my time but it’s would be a big mistake giving up on this project . I’m proactive about it, with that’s said no matter where your life takes you, have this nothing time installed in you, walk around and get your mind thinking.

  • Our 1st song

Why I wrote this controversial topic

From a workaholic view or burn outs that’s might be a thing but people who are moving at that’s pace has a great work ethic and I recommend it. Reading and writing is working too so to all people who like to work physically, move to other skills like listening and really pay attention and connects all the necessary dots to things you listening to .If your girlfriend or spouse talk, be able to process in their tone what’s important and what’s not, Back to the topic, the reason I wrote this I saw a guy I look up too really get frustrated when pandemic began and everything around it.

Since he had to stop working and all the systems he is involved in gat hited a bit now seeing him trying to convince authority to open the doors of work, made me realize there is never one dope strategy to live life and workaholic is really not one of them, that’s why smart should come through and really get away from things that’s seems to make up your life.

At home they call me, the moment I leave home for 2 days and that’s ok but at some point they should see me leaving and really get disconnected a bit intentionally, why? Because circumstances can do this as well, so why we are not practicing as people? They why we take so much hit when a family member passes, we don’t anticipate this moments. Family is important but balance is really recommended, I love my mother and father but the fact that’s I don’t live with them is a real relief the pain is not the same.

So you can count your blessings during that’s time

Social media has become our diaries, but this things disappear and they are now trying to monitor our memories and that’s good but even if you find yourself having amnesia those memories won’t resonate with you. Memories worth remembering you will always remember so, I suggest you don’t take social media’s features seriously and embed them too much in your life.

Have offline tools instead, if you download an offline calendar even if the company who made it, closes you will remain having it. Back to the subtitle Blessings, do you make time to be thankful for things you have achieved? If you too busy you cannot do that’s and moving forward you can’t keep up because you won’t have a north star, you just drifting through life.

Gratitude and be conscious of things that’s are going well in your life, can be a cool realization. I always heard that’s successful rich people hit a gym and trying that’s has showed me wonders, I once hit a gym and felt so fresh and I saw that’s right now I’m really healthy. I can add don’t overdo things, that’s their impact can be undercut by other life challenges. Hitting 2hrs of gym and 0 on your finances is not a smart way to spend your do nothing time.

Stop thinking and start strategizing, I thought strategy was a critical thing a person can do but all it is, is plan of action now thinking is important because you going to think though the strategy .Bu saying I’m thinking of buying a car, is far from saying on December I’m buying a car because I’m saving R4000 a month and my Bonus is so much if I put it, I can get the car I’m aiming for. Now that’s strategy my brothers and sisters.

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.

How to write as an amateur

Welcome to LnM and don’t be offended by the title of today’s topic, but I realized when starting writing this blogs that’s there was nothing special about writing. You just have to pay attention to other people’s format and repeat with different message or same message putted differently from your own experience.

Today I will touch on writing a song and anything you might want to write. My understanding there are few reason to writing like talking is to get a feedback or a messages across ,you can use it as a form of mediation as a reminder and lastly to teach someone or many people at once following certain system.

Do the work

  1. You are not an amateur if you have something to say

Platforms like social media makes people write for terrible agenda’s but if you are reading this I want you to shift your mind. Think of something valuable you can write about that’s unique to you that’s you think people can benefits from.

That’s it’s all its takes see for me I once reply on twitter on Microsoft post where they want to revolutionize the journalism industry and they wanted people views , I replied and because there is no spelling corrector there I sent the messages but it’s had a lot of grammar so that’s me admitting to the fact that’s there is terrible writing .But I saw tons of like because others understood what’s I was trying to say and only blame the grammar which lead me to putting in browser spelling corrector and that’s when my handicap disappeared ,Microsoft word had me lazy to master spelling but either way I leverage it and avoid unnecessary work.

don’t be destructed

2. You need to know how to think deeply /connect the dots from the main subject to pieces

English is not my mother’s tong but it doesn’t matter its mine now, what’s important is that’s when you write you don’t deviate too much from the reason why you pick up your fingers and type on the first place.

And know if you have a format you have created for yourself like saying like me ,I don’t write below 5 points so whatever I’m talking about I should think even points that’s doesn’t exists to hit my target lollI’m kidding but you get the point.

I could write one script for 3 days because points may be missing at the moment I started so when I get back at it the next day I’m fresh , I keep going. Pay attention to all your material and reread your subtitles to not repeat the same things in different ways ,this apply to artists as well using same unique words on your lyrics or lines makes you seem lazy and not appreciated by your fans. As much as I always suggest writing from a stand point of writing for yourself realize you shouldn’t fool you. As people we want something fresh and new every time.

3. Tackle real issues

By this point you are a writer and for you to be recognized as a better amateur you need to come through at an issue and break it apart and put your powerful two sense. Meaning don’t hurry talking and using information other people already said about the subject , let it cool off and start to do your due diligence as a writer.

I will refer again to corona virus the songs was coming left and write from artists talking about this in its early stages, I waited and manage to do a three verse song with most of what’s has happened and my take about it. You see when you do that’s by then you have all the facts like Mr.

Warren Buffet say’s I don’t care what’s the stock market is doing for as long as I know the facts. So don’t try to pick up the trends writers are original and so should you .What’s has worked for me the most is to write more from my experiences than through research why is that’s because its seems practical for my readers.

4. We are all thinkers, become a great one

Writers put their thought into papers then average people put all their thought in to action even if it’s harmful one. Wealthy people write a lot, I wouldn’t imagine myself spending a day without jotting anything down my point here just know to be great in life you should write.

Be your goals ,Budget and so on its associated with writing and most importantly write reminders of things you must do and things you already done and keep a head space in your head. I putted wealthy people so you can be encouraged to do it. Please don’t take the writing practice and rally people with it or thinks if people write something different from you they are not writer’s or they’re bad ones. I don’t consider myself a great thinker but the thought and ideas I get from reading other peoples work is amazing.

I hate the fact that’s math’s comes hard to me but words don’t so to become great at something also consider your weaknesses ,maybe you should be a statistician or a logical thinker and really crush people’s emotional weaknesses when they take decisions without contacting the head 1st. So on that’s case you love math simplify it for people like us and make it attractive and I’m sure I can read that’s.

Learning is now so easy , to the point that ignorant is stupid

5. Only do outlines if you are writing a huge content like a book or more than 5 pages

Other writer’s may disagree and that’s ok , but my goal here is to make a amateur love to write so once I get too technical I will lose that’s guy or girl. Don’t draw your points for a side points you just wrote unless it’s part of research. But it’s your own dreams and horror’s you experienced just follow your memory and tell us what’s happened.

As of writing this how to write for beginners, I have no other person’s opinion because I cannot confirm that’s and I have no outline either all I do is I write about the things I know. I stare at my title and see value I can give out of it.

 There are steps like editing and proof reading in a  writing process , for now I’m asking you to do it yourself or do things once and lets the world figure .right now I’m writing from that’s stand point all I know if you squeeze my work hard enough you will find the juice.

6. Why anyone should practice writing?

For legacy purposes, for meditation purposes when you write you get lost and really focus so I want that’s experience for you. Reading is the same thing and way better because through reading you get to have a sense of knowing new thing and your horizon get broaden.

And to be honest with you if I didn’t read the books, I would’ve not written anything in my life. Tweets and posts is not writing and the reasons behind that’s writing is wrong. No one entertain meaningful things there so you always get discouraged. Not hating on this platforms but when you write, write and when you play, play. A bonus what’s writing will do to you, you will stop wanting to write on social media its will seem lame and not life altering.

As of writing this, I recently does what I have always does after sometime, deleting contacts on my phone that’s no longer useful. I am a music producer and lot of things within music which sometimes needs audience on Social media but when removing contact’s linked with my whatsapp I realized that’s my whatsapp is liability every morning I have a new message from people asking for something to me .a song , a free beat or an advice about music which lead to me opening thing blog ,instead of people consuming my time one by one ,I rather dedicate time and write articles and there is a book by ULwaz No Makhula on Amazon called Music Insider that’s has all the contact’s you will need as a musician. With all that’s said I recommend a book called Deep Work on this topic , without waste of time let’s get to today’s topic.

Life is made out of minites and seconds , the time you misuse is giving your life away.

Mark Twain

1. So that’s you will live life worth living

If you can pay attention, to what’s you do the moment you wake up to the time you sleep, you will see where your life is going. I want us to be realistic here say you have a car and what’s you do is helping people and at the end of the day you have nothing to show for it do you think that’s is good living? Or say you wake up wash your face and go straight to hang out in the store with other guys is that’s worth doing? If you are attacked by this and you wish to respond be my guest but I doubt we will find a common ground. The goal of this articles is to open your eyes and have some cause you living for as going to work year after year is much better but if it’s not backed by a bigger cause you might be drifting through life and you will die to oblivious even to the most people in your life and I will suggest you avoid that’s by all mean. If you are an artist going to record every day and do beats non-stop can be exciting and really time consuming but when all said and done does it help the well living of your bottom line?


The watch shouldn’t exceed your hourly pay though

2.To see if you not spending most of your day in daily choirs and your life is static, not improving.

For a person who is serious about life, my goal is to escape all the menial tasks at home and hire a person to those for me. Others can afford to do this but yet they know if someone do their dishes and clean their house will open a gab in their schedule and they don’t want to face that’s ,while others think it’s the kids job and not to be awkward kids needs to learn this things cause they are basic  in life ,cooking and all but the hard things should be what’s we instill to ourselves and our kids ,that’s reading books of personal development and biographies of great successful people as well as focus on our relationships ,that’s if you are married have time for your spouse intentionally and get out of the noise of daily tasks that’s surely will be worthwhile. Learn and teach about money which is really a challenging subject and a unique thing to deal with but if you can master that’s part all will seems to be running smooth. And your time alone focus on something, it may be hobby or something you feel may make a difference in your community or world. I know you may said let me see what’s this guy says and your life doesn’t go this lines and maybe you already have a worker but I’m sure somewhere you need to clean up and get your life in order.


3. So your will know that’s if you die today, you gave it your best.

As human beings all the worried that’s we have dearth seems to come on top, yet we seems to forget about it when we look at our priorities. I have some business where I have customers and I know more about what’s going on in the service I’m providing then then do from previous experience, because they don’t know some minor challenges is a huge issue with them so you too, you can say but during my day I’m serving people and they complain and all of that’s, the complaints may be valid but you know what’s you need to fix now or 1st that’s even if you die now your family can inherit viable business. So with all the above analogies take action that’s once done will open many possibilities for you , for me was watching certain channels on YouTube they really change my life and I would know who I am if I didn’t stubble on those ,then those channels introduced me to books and book 10x everything as I saw books are hard and you need to develop the habit in order to read and understand them , I took the route of audiobooks ,I still read books cause is the number one way to acquire information and since audiobooks are passive you can miss most important things.


4 To be a better organized person.

So since I lost my job in 2017, its opened me to the other part of life that’s seemed real and tough which if I didn’t lose my work I would’ve thought life is easy and poor people are lazy, loosing that’s job I got another one eventually its didn’t pay as good but still I was arrogant bragging that’s how come people don’t get jobs I just got another one. See my uncle tried to explain to me the privileges I have but I couldn’t understand until I lost that’s job again and realized I wasn’t good at it. Humility grew on me and I started to feel for people who are not doing well in life as I was now a bit in their shoes ,luckily for me I got curious and learnt this new mindset I’m suggesting here, getting back to the point because of the knowledge I have acquired and habits I have instilled in myself the last to jobs I worked in not even once I was late ,why was that’s I became organized as I started to take my day seriously ,automatically I respected my boss ,I even got a job where I wasn’t supervised and that’s compelled me to perform way better so when they barge on me I was on track and it’s all work well for me till I decided to leave and if you don’t plan your life in daily dose  many distractions will come your way you might not write everything you need to do but the one thing that’s you must do every day should be in your head ,saying if every day I did this one hard thing that’s is out of my comfort zone than my day will be worth it ,this suggests even if you don’t know how you going to get paid from this ,doing it and knowing maybe that’s there is a market for it its what’s matters and do that’s for a long whole. We are human one day missed because of the emergency is fine but make up for that’s loss time.

5 So you will be efficient in your tasks

In my community nothing seems to be urgent, for youth and technology invading our lives its worse .ULwaz No Makhula which is me and my friend we saw a really powerful work habits combining our music brand together we amazed our fans doing what’s other artists do in a year in 3 months. So in December everyone was going crazy as usual, we had our little craziness but it was mostly work. We submitted our music video that’s we shot on November then we recorded 3 new songs and got helped choosing a single for January then on January we dropped a music video on TV channels and YouTube , February we dropped a single and march we boosted our page and reach 3000 followers and sometime releasing another new song. I know others know people who release more than that is but I will assure you it’s expensive to market music and everything within it, that’s why there are few main players in the game. We were efficient in our tasks, 1. Because we pushed one another and both want what’s best for the group 2. Because we want to be successful as soon as we can for me the beginning of the year all my chips were in the music table and lastly 3. We are clear about what’s we are doing.

So you too, reschedule your day, week, month and so on if you working with someone we are people and ever changing don’t make huge decisions under a spark of a moment try by all means to be objective and lets situation pass and lastly what’s I will recommend the goal of having a partner in whatever you do is not for you to hold back what’s ever eating you inside as well as not bursting without thinking. You may ask to think about it or agree and if you feel you not ok with the decision reconsider but don’t put the whole building done because of a minor misunderstanding. And lastly don’t be a inefficient one in a team. Bonus point!!

6. So that’s you will have a day that’s you are proud of

Do we average people have this kind of days? I doubt it, or rarely if it’s not my 9-5 that’s fulfill my day then I have a problem. Knowing that’s jobs are simply a economic transaction system I know is a way for me to get money are there other ways yes about 7 or more .But depending on your job or you are in a lockdown as we are now you can feel your job is a gateway drug to something meaningful that’s at least pay your bills. If not you drag to wake up in the morning and let alone doing the work ,I’m not a guru here I’m a 29years guy who  once experienced the day that’s he was proud of ,here it is at the age of 26 after I lost the job I was talking about above ,I simply took my provident fund and decided to build a rental rooms so during the construction I saw a shift in my life ,that’s I wish for you to experience as well in your life time ,its dint matter that’s I was losing money or investing but my Monday was exciting and I couldn’t wait to wake up and arrive at the site because what’s was going on there was mine and it has a potential to change my life forever knowing or not. Those day I ticked off a lot of things on my daily tasks it was amazing lots of good and bad and backstabbing and so forth but it was worth it , I grew with those experiences I was a boss for a moment in charge of a project without proper schooling about this I only knew what’s I wanted. I changed for the better there and what’s happened after changed me more I got encouraged to read more and its was a perfect time for me to change from the old 9-5 working me because I would’ve sided with my workers and nothing would’ve got done. I read books, I understood that’s if you in my position you need to have a way of doing things and mine was be nice but don’t tolerate sh*t and that’s way I manage to go far as I did and learned to cultivate a powerful relationship with my neighbors there whom at first I had my own wrong 30 second preconception about them, where you normally conclude a person character and attitude within 30 sec you met, the book I read called African midwives really helped me. It’s the 1st time I published something with so much of my personal life in it. You will be proud of your days if you really make them yourself and not anyone who comes to you and ask for whatever that’s doesn’t seems to help you but balance.

South African arts and culture, artists and entrepreneur should reinvent themselves

Lockdown has shown weakness in the city innovation and technology, and obviously behind in online experience of music and other sectors but today we will focus more on Music and more on other aspect of art and culture. Let’s us generalize and make you think of this idea ,why should South African Artists should sell music via intentional aggregators who are not working in the best interests of the African society but only on the wellbeing of America? Why network providers are not transparent and accessible for our ideas as upcoming artists and why all the IT students who also passionate about music do not create platforms to help the Province and the country benefits? Lastly why government isn’t encouraging what’sslikouronlife life is doing in Johannesburg so we can control our financial destiny as artists .All I’m seeing is us paying premiums every month and years to guys who want to take advantage of other because they see they’re lazy to do it themselves.

Attension

Call mWith the above questions ,we really don’t have platform to be heard as art and this alone piss me off to the point I’m relying on word press to voice my anger ,yet not only that’s I’m planning and working towards solving this issues. We need efficient online platforms ,where we can see RIO in a matter of a year and encourage our fans and supports to actually purchase our products in this places ,while getting mainstream media to advocate this channels like they do for platforms like iTunes and spotifies

I’m not against this platforms but the legal agreements we sign up for are too much have even fine prints that’s we as artists don’t need because we are not lawyers we are simply musicians .We want something as put my album online and its cost R100 and after one sale I can be able to cash that’s I know there are stories of taxes and are very important but for my blood to start rushing I need to see where my effort is going.

Deejay @ work
Hits with no royalties

I guess I won’t do point form today, we saw artists like Zakwe using their connections and influence pushing artists online on face book platforms and YouTube, that’s is fine known and in the long run which is why we need coders to come forward not in the aim of making money only but to strive for a course, we need marketers to come as well and make South African based product mainstream. Tiktok are using artists music to push their platform which is good and knowing that’s this product is from china and china government back its startups and mostly its businesses is no brainer that’s South Africa should cut a pattern.

We not interested in models ,its doesn’t matter if the cat is black or white for as long its can catch the mice

Nelson Mandela

Follow us on Twitter to get aticles as they come out

Music ,Painting ,Dancing , skating ,drama ,film and so on need to be protected as our IP intellectual Property we know this big companies has audience that’s we still need but we can still start our own thing from the scratch and for Coders and IT guys I’m sure you know now how this work ,you build something in order to fill a need ,so be different in your approach and cut most of time consuming part and make your innovation easy and most importantly learn the business side of things because if this becomes a reality Venture Capitalists will pop up everywhere with millions and want control on valuable startups with a vision and eventually wants control ,So this will only mean don’t build to sell because that’s strategy doesn’t work any way build to solve a problem and pay attention to what’s feature people uses the most on the product you put out and embrace that’s pivot and don’t stick to one version so much that’s you miss the whole picture or other players beat you to it. Check all the buy products, the incongruities and so on read books like innovation and entrepreneurship like peter Drucker and rework.

Kwazulu Natal Should lead in the production rather than what’s is happening now which is consuming and private businesses can intervene to make this possible, I don’t want to lie I don’t know anything about stocks yet but the moment we hear that’s south African based internet app or website is making an impact I will put my money there.

Ideas shouldn’t be money hungry too , see I get lot of emails from international brand wanting us to be their ambassadors using our talents that’s ok , The problems is us while pushing their products ,they want us to pay premiums ,so that’s simply a no ,if you build something make sure the ambassador get what’s they work for ,and if they have to be charged then it’s should be taken in the money that’s brand is supposed to pay him ,Same as this thing of royalties I know artists are not greedy ,while this aggregator wants money upfront ,the winning one is the one that’s takes a reasonable percent after the music sales. So that’s how I think it can be a win, win. Money is a fuel of a business but server and fast computers are the tools of an IT guy and they rely on people to test and complain if you put a premium from a get go you will have a problem .Unless there is a direct service on top of it and product.

ULwaz No Makhula coming soon Single

We can learn from Mxit introducing moola for their messaging platform ,If you can build something with initial free credits and get people subscribing and hooked with good content in top of it that’s will be a winner .I can keep going but my point is clear now .Those who have money but love to take this challenge be my guest technology has evolve a lot from old days spoon and plate to now computers and coming Artificial Intelligence ,as well as VR Technology .I may add to that’s point to everyone reading that’s you don’t have to bet on this alone this Pandemic has shown that’s idea that’s may seem lame like partying alone at home as a terrible one ,but VR technology shows that’s if the experience I wanted was to see ULwaz No Makhula perform and ULwaz no Makhula wanted to perform for a crowd Black mirror TV series has demonstrated that’s its possible as well as VR technology .but we know there is more to this than that’s so any app that’s can serve that’s experience will do well in a market place .Thanks for checking unique ideas today from this LnM website please share maybe someone might be intrigued and do something.


In closing Vusi Thembekwayo has once said that’s government should make things accessible for businesses that’s has a growth mindset and don’t want to remain small. Tax clearances and infrastructure should be in place to improve our economy as a whole and efficiency in place. What’s he added is business people should think big and act accordingly so check out his videos on YouTube .I’m also guilty of the bad things we do mostly us black people, making the entire paperwork of a business to bid for one tender which is wrong cause its somehow shows the main focus is on money, chances are the math is not good and that’s is way dangerous than having a successful project and don’t see ROI. Thanks please follow us as ULwaz No Makhula on all social media.

Let’s me make a disclaimer , I’m not against USA based businesses and not against how they operate but putting a client 1st is my concern ,e.g. ITunes is too big now to maintain its operations without third parties ok but I was a member of one aggregator and I signed up with a fee ,when I wanted to cancel they asked for another fee why is that’s I asked and didn’t get a valid answer because they were taking premium on me and I was pas that’s aggregator since there was a new better one I want having this problem ,as a customer this did not sit well with me ,they had my card number which meant I was at their mercy .so things like notifying a customer about upcoming charges may be of help ,while others may try to dodge that’s but others will see a great anticipation and budget accordingly. 

Focus on where your money come from

If you follow this blog/ website you should be already having my number for whatsapp 0840196532, why because if you deal with me you are bound to make money if you have anything to offer. So in this article I will explain where people should focus on to get their share in the market place ,and if you don’t know we live in the market place world and social media is a market place .For your work you market your skills and get hired so you will get paid that’s pure trading.

So you might have a hobby like mine where you share information like this and yet don’t get paid, it doesn’t mean it will always be like that’s so that’s my disclaimer that’s if at some point in what’s you are doing you can be able to monetize just keep doing it and do whatever necessary to grow and start taking those donations and consultation services now without waste of time lets encourage why you should focus on money.


  • 1 Money is for livelihood love it and ask for it.

You spend money every day knowing or not your live costs money so if you can learn to ask for what is rightfully yours when you help people, then your parent or spouse will stop see you as a burden or someone needing to be spun filled. Waking up in the morning how do you spend your day?Can you monetize on your relationship personally I have taught my boys to charge for most of things people ask them to do, not being sent to the tuck shop but person borrowing their money ask for interest and if that’s is working well focus on it and make money, if I ask them to do some hard work that’s needs an older or outside person they are allowed to charge me so they know I’m their source of income and sometimes they can ask to do something. This apply to you as well reading this Artist or not, charge for your feature, make money out of your friends somehow for spending time with you like here at Spliff for any use of our artists we need money and Durban artists hardly use them because here rappers are broke all the time or maybe they don’t want to invest in their music and they have a bad mindset that being charged is unethical or taken for a fool, well I can say a fool is someone agreeing to help for free. Unless its charity so ask for money or you will wind up liked but broke.

Bottom Line
  • 2 You don’t get paid for being nice and agreeing to anything

Today and like every day I get stupid requests just because I have a studio some stranger rapper want to come and hang  out with me and I said no to that’s. No one is allowed to come over and chill here this is a place of work and my bedroom and most of all my class you can learn more here than simply having comfort as he called it. See I have learnt to say no to most rappers on social media because they take everyone for a fool or thinks we all think alike. I said No to a guy who wanted to do a song with me, I said the feature is R2000 and he put hands on his head and that’s really pissed me off but I closed the conversation politely because he just don’t know me even if I said its R500 ,he was not going to pay so I deal with artists all the time but I try to spend less time with them talking business because they don’t understand it and those who do we are fine.

I know that’s I’m a nice person but other people like what’s I’m doing and recognition that’s I’m getting and thinks they can just come and leverage that’s it’s not possible thanks to Makhula for emphasizing the money part in our brand because the feature or a beat you want from me took time if you don’t respect that’s you don’t respect me and I cannot respect you too then. The best way to start a conversation with people who you respect their work is greeting them tell what’s you want and the budget you have and the service you want or if you scared of saying the budget tell them when you want to do this meaning its shouldn’t be month end ,or you would’ve called during the month end and that’s way you avoid coming back to me and asking me do you remember ,That’s doesn’t work its bad because what’s ever we may have agreed to has change.


  • 3 Don’t do things that’s isn’t worth it financially or emotionally.

We know this piece is about money but if you can’t stand what’s you do to get money ,is just that’s bad ,change it not if you are lazy about it ,but if its pays the bills and you don’t have much kills then improve yourself while doing that’s job that’s pays you. For Music artists if you also a beat maker and beats make you money than songs, do beats more and promote them, If songs get you gigs, do the songs, If Maybe you have a camera and taking pictures make you money and you enjoy it, stick to it and study that’s industry so that’s you won’t be outdated as the technology improves. Learn more about your customers and engage with them.

The best investments parents can do for their kids and themselves is encourage the tuck shops at the home outside building and encourage kids imagination and if it’s going to better the situation at home, if the kid is showing the love of selling help out and get the stock loan the kid and take your initial investment so the kid will keep going, that’s focusing on the money tuck shop is a backup for jobs since anything can happen while going to work or the company itself challenges will be there thief’s and all but you will prevail.


  1. Reblogged this on LnM and commented: This one didn’t get too much attention but it has a like or so…

  • 4 Focusing on money also means saving it

I won’t talk about investments, but saving account and 31 days’ notice account is important, stop order is important and don’t do a mistake of saving all your money earlier on and thinking that’s will make you reach, saving of money is not to make riches but to have a piece of my and liquidity for emergencies as well as forself-control and confidence. Having money on the account gives you courage to face life head on and have something to live for excepts your kids but not having money as a problem but a tool to help you navigate through life.

We saw our parents go overboard with stokvels not know what’s they’re doing and it’s really not helping our community that’s much and people playing or conducting it, some steal interests for themselves and its not to save money for anything to improve the situation at home or bring more income it’s just to have more food and but more stuff and that’s why our society of South African is not prospering. I’m not just pointing fingers I know what’s I’m talking about and I’m trying to better myself and trying an antidote and people normally don’t want such cures but try I will and this is the platform I will use to share my unhappiness and ideas.

  • 5 Pension and disability money is not a great source of income.

Government’s controls the populations and they have a basis to do so, as a country we need to be more independent and responsible than taking hands out from governments. Yes others need them and some of us can start from the bottom up by ourselves and we need more of that’s .Once we start and being responsible as a society we can help government deal with community issues rather relying on them for anything as well as in tax payers’ money which is us. If anything to this source of income for kids especially which is us youth of today make kids while we not ready financially , we bonds with our kids emotionally but we cannot provide for them ,how stupid is that’s ? Why don’t we become responsible in bed use condoms and contraceptives? And limit ourselves that’s until I have certain amount in my account then I can bring someone in the world or will try but only then.

Hard as it is that’s the decision I have made , I know there is a pressure at home my parents want to be grandparents at my own expense and I cannot repeat that’s mistake that’s happened to me. And my kid shouldn’t use government money if he/ she is in my life which is my wish ,scamming to be disable and all in order to get this money is a bad strategy as well , work for your money , smart and hard then do good to yourself and others and most importantly live your life.

Other thing we as people are not aware of is this incentives can end anytime so relying on them is a huge mistake ,like now the R350 stress relief fund by govenment may around even after Corona Virus and people will forget thats they were not entitled to this money ,when they no longer want to look for a job because of this so i will suggest not to be to grateful if you are in need of this money but self check and improve your circumstances next time.

How to make life worth it (Artists & as a Person)

Hi todays article is based on my life experience and knowledge I have acquired and I’m not trying to be absolute and controversial but having a view on life is the best state to be at because most people and musicians drifts through life without an awareness of what’s going on outside and within them in their minds and life. Others think life is hard or is how to be certain way and other spend their days sitting around the tuck shops and showing not eager to win at life and become something of themselves so today we wish to open your eyes at least by an inch and make you see you could be someone better not someone average and who is a normal rapper who will quite after getting a 9-5 job.


  • 1 Get out of a crowds and negative routines.

You might be a lady , you normally have girls together and say you enjoy life with other girls your age and drink alcohol and have a blast that’s good but is that’s aligned with your life goals and purpose?

We not trying to change anyone here but let’s do an experiment here if your birthday is so important then every year you have a massive loss in a form of investment in this day and if you don’t have cash that’s time you go to debt because this is a once in a year situation right? Wrong look you need to get out of the bubble and realize you aren’t getting any younger and start curving a purpose for yourself and invest on that’s and become the best version of yourself ,that’s may mean changing that’s circle of friends and those drinking habits. Because if there is 10 of you ,you guys do this 10 times or more per year and already behind by a mile compare to someone who reads books and watch great YouTube channels to help him/her sane. I recommend Channels like @ALUX.COM on YouTube and SUCCESSTV (with red and black logo and VALUETAINMENT for you to start on this path of success and make your life worth it.


  • 2 Don’t binge social media limit yourself in it?

Even if you market something on places like Facebook, twitter, instar, tiktok and more have it on a system and have a room for your sanity and loneliness where you can think and meditate or hit some pushups. Just condition yourself and I want to advice you something take the pain of boredom and experience it so where you get a chance to go out there and live life, work and so on you will grab it with both hands and be gratitude. Today I learn that’s Lockdown is happening for the second time and I’m writing this as a grateful person cause I’m in the zone and I’m using this time to help my fellow human kind like me in this noisy culture we living in. Key of this point don’t let your bad behavior get all over you without a fight , challenge them in short , challenge your mind and tell it what’s to do and not be told by it all the time. Take control of your life and start building yourself good habits. If you take this and try it, it’s going to be hard but don’t swear it. Just improve and create strategies to deal with your anxieties and times where you feel a bit depressed. Today Mphako’s Video played on Mtv Base and this positive thing made me realize through our talent and hobby we have inspired kids from my neighborhood because they saw it and talked about it, instead of a negative event of guys stealing cars or robbery which shows another side of life which is not good for society.

If you don’t learn from history , yourl be stuck in the past


  • 3 Be curious of how things come to be.

For me knowing I can always learn something new makes my life worth it, in some aspect of my life I might have to improve but knowledge acquiring I have become way better and I’m proud of that’s .If you can follow the channels I recommended on YouTube and try to avoid looking at topics that’s won’t help you and focus on those in line with how you can better yourself then your curiosity will be filled day by day. All I ask is for you to take action on actionable steps we suggest or reading this won’t help you .last channel I forgot is Grand cardone see you don’t have to take every advice they give but 1% will change your life and view of life .

We are aware of the situation of Covid 19 and Please stay home

  • 4 Try all the things that’s has a potential to better your life.

I grow up knowing and thinking school is the only thing needed to better my life but now I know knowledge and how to do something is what’s will change my life. It’s doesn’t matter if I got it in college or online school for as long as I can do it I’m good to go. To my second point jobs in South Africa require some sort of diploma or degree to get employed and be in a position but that’s can be limiting to other things other people want to do with their lives, Books have more information than what universities offer but you need to be disciplined to be able to do it by yourself but you can try if you don’t have money to pay tuition fee just buy data and get busy download free pdfs and so on. I can’t wait to be rich to share this kind of information Couse that’s certain it’s going to happen and by then I might not have time to write like this .SO try to get things you want in many ways, we live in the world that’s is runned and operates with money meaning money of the important of things should be on top, to the point that’s you should be weary of someone asking you to do something for free.

  • 5 Having family as important as them not interfering to your personal life

Family has been portrayed as the most important aspect of life and I agree but I want to and that’s you should be able to survive if they all die at the same time and you luckily made it. I know this example is extreme but this point only means be your own person and try to have a conversation with your family to let you try doing things differently your own way for as long as it’s not killing people or anything that’s is not striving to better yourself. In the start of 2018 I decided to stop watching TV and payoff has been amazing because things I think about lately are really mind-blowing and they are aligned with my life purpose and cause ,I don’t think much about news and episodes playing on TV because they really not going to help me in anyway. I got a job and I had to live inside my work, so normal person would want to buy a TV the moment they arrive for me it was a blessing in disguise being there, I focused on my healthy eating because at home it’s hard the kind of food they cook is not good in a long run. There was no distractions from my reading and gym. Now I’m back home because I could use freedom and my brother needed the job more than I did and my secret is I still spend most of my time in my room and with my friends on whatsapp who happens to be number 1 customers of my beats and who visits my blog so I’m grateful.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
