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…

The Bare Minimum I Expect When I’m Booked
The Bare Minimum I Expect When I’m Booked

In preparation for #Booked&Busy2019 I have taken initiative and listed some of the expectations that I have when I am booked for a speaking gig. To get paid I didn’t understand this when my mentor was trying to teach me about ‘riders.’ She explained to me that part of her ‘rider’ as a speaker is that, if people are paying…

The Only Thing I Want For 2019
The Only Thing I Want For 2019

The only thing I want in 2019 is female friends I can make money with. I need a girl squad around me that has influence and power like Taylor Swift in ‘Bad Blood.’ There are so many young women that I’ve been keeping a close eye on that are steady making moves despite the prevailing economic situation in Zimbabwe. These…

You Need More Rejection In Your Life
You Need More Rejection In Your Life

When you walk past windis they will try their luck on almost every woman that walks by at the bus terminal. They will do this day in, day out without fail and they never tire. How many “No’s” do you think they get per day? I’m sure they get a “Yes” once in a while but they will continue to…

The Art of Being an Influencer
The Art of Being an Influencer

Being an influencer is the ability to hook people into believing in you and your opinion to the extent of parting with their hard-earned money just because you sold them the dream. Why should we believe you? To influence adequately, you need to produce high quality content on a regular. This means it must be great to experience. At the…
