Today, let us talk about motivational speakers. We are inclined to believe that some of them should be added to the list of what Kenyans like to call a scam.
In fact, they should probably be blamed for the rising depression among the youth, because their trade is based on selling false hope.
These are the people who sit you down and narrate fairy tales of how, for example, they started a multi-million dairy farm with an empty cattle shed.
Don’t you think it is better to tell realistic success stories, and by that we mean telling the struggle as it is; the good, bad, and outright ugly sides of financial growth?
When you think about it, there really is no difference between the said exaggerated motivational speakers and the dreaded multi-level-marketing agents, fleecing the youth of their investments.
That said, let us keep in mind that every money-making venture starts with a plan and dedicated funds.
You cannot build a cattle shed and expect the cows to fall from heaven.
