By now, everyone has heard this clip of the busted woman. I just have one thing to say to Ciku. Life is not black and white, there are a lot of shades of grey. One day you will discover that you are non the wiser.

Whenever human beings needs are not met, they have the obvious instinct of looking for it. Take for instance the people who eat dog meat when they are hungry. Are they bad people for eating dog meat? Would they have eaten dog meat if their present circumstances allowed them to eat a healthy chicken. The same as the people in dead end relationships who won't come out for the sole reason that they have children with those other people (Trust me, this is a good reason). Does it ever hit you that those emotionless busters are control freaks. Or for whosoever sake would love you enough to want to know that you are cheating on them. Maybe it is time you advised them to meet their partner's needs and maybe they wouldn't have to you know call you. Of course they are those mischievous ones who don't need any reason to.

Bottom line. If a human being's need is not being met, they will hunger for it and yes, you guessed it, get it.

Do you know why your business is failing?

I am no intellectual in doing business. Actually i have done very little business. I am a professional. Sometimes professionals do business, most of the times they do not.

But all the same, i will give you a little hint as a customer of businesses as to why your smart business self is not making any money 2 years later. I know you hired that smart business executive to make you smart business plan that convinced the bank manager to give you money but back to basics.

Your sales people.

I have no words for this people..

Picture this, i have gone to buy a phone. I ask the sale rep about the specifications and she(mostly beautiful) tells me she does not know. How now? You actually employ someone to sit in your shop to sell you things that she does not know about. In fact, most of the times, whether i am buying a camera, a bootleg movie, a phone i am always met with a i do not know. Beauty is overrated.

Seriously, stop everything and hire a sales person who actually understands what you sell. Companies like Nokia, Samsung, Safaricom and other serioius companies are always hosting workshops for their products. There are movie previews that are free on the internet. And a sales rep does not know what product they are selling is simply a bad idea.

I went to a fair over the past weekend. You can tell the sales people judge people by the way they look. Just tell them to judge people by their ability to produce money once the item is sold. If you think i cannot afford (sometimes i can't) i will not buy even if i had the money to buy.

So stop concentrating on all your smart business plans, your beatiful accounting graphs and just hire a sales person who can sell.

Somewhat Blondish...Blonde Series 2

I just had to attend the funeral of the Sex and the City. So i decided to fork out Ksh. 100 to a sales girl. Anyway she gave me Sex and the City Season 2A. The stuff they do these days to make sure you pay twice for Season A and Season B.

So i asked said sales girl why she gave me Season 2 A while i asked for Sex and City 2. She pointed at the poster and insisted it was the movie. Hours later i am doing re runs of Season 2.

Maybe the Sex and City 2 was that horrendous? I am yet to find out.
