How House Chores Could’ve Made Me a Better Adult
How House Chores Could’ve Made Me a Better Adult

I wish I had done more house chores when I was growing up. I envy the people who had strict parents who gave them strict duty roasters to adhere to. My kids will have chores assigned to them the moment they are able to walk and talk. There are two things that household chores train a child to do, firstly,…

Self Sabotage VS Self Care
Self Sabotage VS Self Care

There’s a fine line between being tired and being exhausted. How do you know when you’re burning out and that you need to take a proper break? With the raging conversation around mental health issues, it seems like we are getting caught up in the wave and we are what Kwirirayi calls, “self-diagnostic” generation. One bad day doesn’t equate to…

In a Selfish World, Only the Selfish Succeed
In a Selfish World, Only the Selfish Succeed

I’ve been standing in the queue for over three hours and you waltz onto the scene and ask nicely to cut in front of me because you’re in a rush. Well no! Get in the queue and wait it out like everyone else. Don’t you think we ALL had places we’d rather be? I once broke up with a guy…

I Once Lost Out on a Job Opportunity Because..
I Once Lost Out on a Job Opportunity Because..

I had been job hunting for months when this opportunity landed on my doorstep, well on my stoep since I’m Zulu. It was perfect! I’d be working remotely with an international team and the salary was in US dollars. This is the big break I’d been praying for. Everything about the job was right up my alley. I was the…

My YouTube Channel is not Dead
My YouTube Channel is not Dead

My YouTube channel is not dead! It’s just in a coma and shows no signs of life. We are just hoping and praying that one day it makes a miraculous recovery. Jokes aside, I’m really excited about being a YouTuber. I’d like to think that I am an exciting storyteller and you don’t really get that from just reading my…

What Ruvheneko Taught Me About Business
What Ruvheneko Taught Me About Business

I went to the Fuck Up Nights that they have at Impact Hub Harare and the speakers for that edition were Tatenda Jakarasi, co-founder and C.E.O. of MunchZW, Ruvheneko and my mentor Thembe Khumalo. As my luck would have it, the main reason why I went was scheduled to speak last. Yay me. But it worked out because I learnt…

Spell my Name, Spell my Name!
Spell my Name, Spell my Name!

There are two things that I don’t respond to. The first one is texts in shorthand and the second one is my name spelt wrong. The latter really makes my blood flow backwards. Ever since I started taking an interest in digital marketing and personal branding, I’ve come to realise the importance of having my name spelt correctly. The Netherlands…

Why Women Can’t Stand Each Other
Why Women Can’t Stand Each Other

Imagine minding your own business just trying to get by and someone keeps roping you into a race that you didn’t sign up for. You’re walking in the middle of town, strolling and living the very best of your life and a sports commentator starts booming overhead and alas you’re in a marathon with other pedestrians just going about their…

We Have Failed the Young Girls as Women
We Have Failed the Young Girls as Women

I used to hate going to pick up my sisters from their school. If I didn’t love them so much, I’d have left them there or made them find their own way way home. You see, when you walk into that all girls’ school, they all look your way and god forbid they start to giggle. You can feel them…

I Got A Mentor… And I love Her!
I Got A Mentor… And I love Her!

Every story has a sensei that guides the main character through the struggle and helps them to their purpose. Even Jesus had the holy spirit. I have Thembe Khumalo. Do you guys have relationship mentors? People who are in healthy working relationships who you go to for advice or who you just look up to? Who are they? — Woman…
