Sharing an article and interview today


You are always living a reflection of whatever you are outputting. And so, if you get into a little pocket where a lot of people are being rude, it's probably because you are being rude -- or because you have been aware of people being rude. Nothing ever happens to you that is not part of your vibration!"

- Esther Abraham-Hicks, is a best-selling author and speaker.

This article is an interview with the founder of the Company that I work for in Uganda

  1. Interesting article. I agree that large businesses should benefit from international donor funds, but not at the exclusion of the small entities. I'm sure that Victoria seeds started small and look where it is now.

    Other fledgling businesses also need that chance to prove their potential and grow until they reach a stage where they can make a positive contribution to the country's development....never forget the "little people"

  2. I think what she was alluding to was that the old ways of disbursing and working aid which have been used for years and years isn't working. It may not necessarily be large businesses but let's look at trade and not aid! Provide these businesses with the support, not only money to grow!

  3. Oh yes I agree with that. Too often people come together in groups just to get some grant funds - there is no cohesiveness, drive or vision for the future. Persons just create a business and then ask so how much money are they going to get out of it? (this "me,me" mentality is what stifles alot of potential businesses

    They write a nice project on paper, and do the necessary paper trail to get the funds and after that?....six months after all funds are disbursed, every one goes their separate way and the cause is lost or the money was not utilized in the true way that would create sustainablity, so the business continues to flounder.

    Funds can be helpful for those with a true entrepreneurial spirit, but if that support is not also there...many will continue to fall by the way-side.

  4. What I realise here that with a grant provider they are not in a competitive business environment so many of the challenges faced by a business or risks a business will take they are exempt from so its a safer existence! Being on the ground and seeing the challenges and triumphs gives you a different perspective! When its hard earned funds decisions are different!
