MY LAST LETTER TO SIR KOFI ANNAN Dear sir, I was 9 when I wrote you my first 'To my role model' letter. It took me 17 years of learning, hard work and initiatives to meet you and to hand you that letter in Thailand. Thank God I got to tell you how much your life meant to me and the vision of Maestros Leadership Team. You believed in me. You gave me a bigger reason to dream and live a life of global impact coming from a small African Nation, #Malawi. Thank you for opening my eyes to new stages of opportunity and breaking barriers. I will forever be grateful. Your global mindset, perseverance, integrity and people-loving nature are just a few of your qualities that continue to inspire me. I salute you for your tenacity of purpose and outstanding global leadership qualities. I will miss you sir and the whole world will miss you, we will continue celebrating your life for you have left us with a big legacy to teach the next generation, to admire, to study, to follow and to look up to. You fought for global peace, you fought for the youth, you fought for women's rights. you fought for children and You fought for the world. In life a Hero, in death a Legend. #Salute #RIPKofiAnnan #OYW #TeamMaestros
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO: WE ARE HOLDING SOMEONE'S ANSWERS TODAY. Have you ever been in a place where you believe God has to show up for you? If you walk down the streets today, you will find someone believing in God to sell bananas worth less than $5 (MK3,500) so that he/ she can get something for the family. Today someone is believing in God for 1 Million US Dollars deal, while some just need $10,000 and they believe their lives will be transformed. We have many believing for way less than that, and their prayers matter. TODAY’S LESSON: Our communities are filled with many solvable problems; I mean problems that can be solved by you and me, but we focus so much on our need to be uplifted and belittle our ability to uplift others. Your prayers, targets, and needs are not too important to ignore other people’s needs. You probably have the answers to what others are looking for. Imagine if we all decided each day to reach out to someone we have the capacity to change his or her life, WE WOULD CHANGE THE WORLD. As we are believing God for the next big step of our lives, may we understand that your big breakthrough might just come when you become someone’s breakthrough. You might be holding a job offer someone can really value. You might have the resources needed to help someone with clothing, school fees, housing, food, gadgets, training etc. Someone just needs your kindness today. Start today, How do you plan to become someone’s blessing today/ this month? ALL THE BEST. #LetsDOthis #TeamMaestros #HappyHumaneDay
What an honour, to be named among Top 10 Young African Change-makers of 2018 This is probably the coolest thing I have seen this month. Testimonies testimonies.

THE POWER OF WRITTEN GOALS (Part 1) [How to turn Dreams into Goals] Your dreams only exist in your mind. When you plan out your dreams and set a determined deadline, only then they become goals. If you see something/ someone you admire, don’t shout “#Goals”, shout “Dreams!” instead – Only shout “Goals!” if you have planned out how and when you will get there. In other words, a goal is a planned out dream with a deadline. The first step to create a goal is to have a clear vision of your dream. I believe you have heard of S.M.A.R.T goals, whether personal or for a company; where you need to make your goals S-Specific, M-Measurable, A-Attainable, R-Realistic and T-Timely. The bigger secret is not in writing them down respectively, but in identifying the objectives and committing to the work needed for you to get there. Remember, discipline is the bridge between your goals and your accomplishments. I hope have been encouraged to put down your vision[s] and goals. Present them before God just like I did. Goal-setting is the first step in turning the invisible (dream) into the visible (Milestones), take that step of faith today. All the best #LetsDOthis #TeamMaestros DON'T CHASE DREAMS CHASE GOALS.
TODAY'S LOVE COUNSEL Has anyone observed the Game of Thrones in whose wedding was the most lit? It's all about priorities huh. The aim shouldn't be about outdoing your friends' beautiful weddings, but outdoing your past & pride to have a beautiful marriage. #WeddingVsMarriage
PRIVILEGED OR NOT, WE WILL MAKE IT. Don't sit back and give up because others seem to have it easier than you, 1. Everyone is fighting a battle. 2. You too can win, whether you were born poor, or physically challenged/ grew up with no education or live in a poor country, YOU CAN MAKE IT. The world is seeking for solution providers, and most of us live where many challenges don't have solutions yet. WE WILL MAKE IT. #LetsDOthis #TeamMaestros
WHAT IS THAT ONE HABIT YOU NEED FOR YOUR NEXT LEVEL? Successful people are not like lotto winners; Getting there requires a set of productive habits, focused actions, personal discipline, great and positive energy every day to make things happen. Your character is a set of well-established habits and personally, One habit I needed the most just a few years back, was to learn to Remain privately and publicly accountable, I had to learn to report on my progress each day. You need to take the time to evaluate and identify your own habits, there is at least one habit that can drastically transform your life. Whether is to learn how to affirm yourself, and stop degrading yourself or perhaps learn to brain-storm and not blame-storm. Learn to do something pretty well and not everything mildly. If we don’t learn good habits, life will become more difficult. Make your choice today. #Checkmake #GoodHabit #Transformation #WorkEthic #TeamMaestros #accountability
THE FINANCIAL HOLY-GRAIL Apart from the traditional ways of earning a living, whereby we look for employment/ start a business, I believe our generation must strive to learn how to make money from our devices, from home, and in our sleep. The economic challenges will not be tackled by creating employment alone but creating sustainable alternatives. 1. FROM OUR DEVICES - Let your phone feed you with more than what you feed it. Nowadays you can do online surveys, you can sell items and your services online. I market and design for clients from different countries now without a physical meeting. Work on sorting out your online payment system this year. Let this be your goal. On my devices, I also use trading programs; IQ Option and MetaTrader for forex trading but there a number of ways to make money from your computer or phone. List down your options down for others to learn. 2. FROM HOME - I started as a freelance graphic designer, music producer, writer, digital marketer and architect from the comfort of my home. I have friends who don't own a restaurant in town but they cook from home and deliver. I know people who rent out a room in their houses or use their houses as daycare centers, some rent out parking spaces etc. Don't be limited by this, you can do so much more. List more ways one can make money from home. 3. IN OUR SLEEP - Nowadays you can partly own any public company you did not build, you can invest in a crowdfunded real estate, you can join affiliate marketing etc. Investing is the Holy Grail in becoming a financially independent heavyweight and you should make more money from your investments than your daily work. I can recommend you to work on learning more from google/ Investment firms/ brokers and banks. In South Africa/ Malawi, I can personally recommend Carrick Wealth, CDH Bank, Standard Bank Malawi, FDH Bank - Malawi. List more investment brokers/ firms with their locations down. HAVE THE HUNGER TO LEARN FIRST; RESEARCH/ READ & ASK QUESTIONS. ALL THE BEST. #DayJobVsNightJob #TeamMaestros #investment IF YOU OFFER SUCH SERVICES, COMMENT BELOW.
THE ILLUSION OF HAVING MORE MONEY A number of people have an assumption that if they can only get as much as the other guy, all their problems will be solved. Would you agree that if the world equally divided the riches today, in a few days one will open a facility to collect other people's money to invest it, another will start a service of lending out money, another will employ others. If you don't have the ability and the discipline to create and retain wealth you will just be the borrower. It is NOT exactly more money you need. You need a good vision and a good work ethic; you need the discipline and the focus, you need to make the right investments & sacrifices. You need to surround yourself with a good team, you need to learn to make the best with what you have. #WorkEthic #TeamMaestros #investments
HOW DO YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES Just imagine, if today all the riches were divided equally in the world. Yes, where you had the same as Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg. Do you know by the end of the month, wait probably by the end of the week, one will employ the other and someone will start borrowing from others. Don't you sometimes wonder, do we all have the same 24 hours? Firstly I would like you to see TIME as a resource we all the living have. We all have it but others make the best of it. How will you take advantage of the time you have today? To take advantage of life opportunities we all must learn to Focus more, learn to say 'Yes' to challenging tasks, we must learn to let go of what has been holding you back, learn to be curious, learn new skills, meet new people and taking advantage of your network, choose to be positive, learn to make commitments and stick by them... HOW ARE YOU TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOUR TIME THIS WEEK? #Life #opportunities #TeamMaestros #WorkEthic
KEEP PUSHING, KEEP CREATING, KEEP BELIEVING. One of the fortune 500 companies I got an opportunity to have a meet with the president and tour their facilities while in Indiana was Eli Lilly. The US-based pharmaceutical company was founded in May 1876 and headquartered in Indianapolis, IN, USA. Eli Lilly & Co. develops, manufactures and sells pharmaceutical products for humans and animals. TODAY Eli Lilly and Company [$86 Billion in Networth] It employs 41,200+ people and markets its products in 125 countries. #INSPIRED4days
WHICH ONE IS A COMMON EXCUSE IN YOUR CIRCLE? Sometimes when people don't give you opportunities, it's not because you are not skilled enough or they don't like you, but they don't like your chain of excuses. Some people are just lazy, too entitled, some just too arrogant, too proud to take the seemingly small steps towards achieving a goal. TOP 10 CLASSIC EXCUSES IN MY CIRCLE... 1. It's just who I am/ the way I am. 2. Nobody in my family makes it past this. 3. I Don’t Have the Money. 4. It is too hard/ I am NOT good enough. 5. What will people say? 6. Once I accomplish this first, I will then start on my goals 7. I am afraid, what if something happens. 8. I am too young/ old. 9. I never had this growing up 10. ........ Sorry, I Don’t Have the Time. (to write the last one) Lol #checkmate IT'S TIME TO EXCUSE YOUR EXCUSES. Remember the more you give excuses, the more that becomes your habit, which in turn becomes a character that repels opportunities. TODAY, decide to make consultations & conscious sacrifices not to give room to excuses. Use your excuses as a means for motivation. ALL THE BEST #LetsDOthis #TeamMaestros #WorkEthic You don't need "Good luck" You need a "Good Work Ethic"
YOU DON'T NEED "GOOD LUCK" YOU NEED "GOOD WORK ETHIC" Most people who are cheating clients/ customers/ teachers/ employers do not realise how much more they are cheating themselves. Once your poor management of time/ workflow catches on fire and becomes a habit, you are on the path of building a character that will repel and disgust greater opportunities. You can pray all you want at this point, you can't cheat God. From today; consciously aim at forming good & productive habits such as focusing, staying motivated, punctuality, initiative, finishing tasks immediately etc. These help to create a good work ethic that will improve your productivity and attract great opportunities. ALL THE BEST #LetsDOthis #WorkEthic #BeYourOwnHERO
