BY GEORGE WACHIURI

We always recognize and celebrate great individuals who impact notable positive value in our society. These are persons such as Prof. Wangari Maathai, Deaden Kimathi Wachiuri, Teresa Nyawira, Nelson Mandela among others, whose contribution and influence can never be waived off.

These are people who have made memorable positive impact through their exemplary living.

The good news is that both you and I can also become distinguished icons in our society and here are some five tips on how you can hack it:

1. Treat humanity with dignity: Valuing people is and will always be a noble investment. Being good will cost you nothing, smiling to people is a natural medicine to humanity. Treating people politely will add value to both you and the society. This kind of culture is what recently made Optiven Group to get recognition at London Stock Exchange; https://www.optiven.co.ke/newsblogs/optiven-featured-on-companies-that-inspire-africa/

Just being good and treating humanity with the dignity everyone deserves, also helped Optiven to clinch the Best Employer in Africa: https://www.optiven.co.ke/newsblogs/optiven-takes-the-africa-best-employer-brand-award-for-2019/

Treat everyone that you come across with dignity, it will always have untold results, ultimately.

2. Have burning passion in what you do: Avoid copying others as we are all as unique as our thumb prints. I remember when I was young in business; I was copying others because they seemed more successful than I was. This led me to failing 15 times! http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/I-failed-15-times-on-the-way-to-building-Sh1bn-real-estate-firm/-/1248928/2618544/-/xgil53z/-/index.html

Passion intensifies in you high levels of creativity, productivity, satisfaction and energy.

3. Help others to see their potential: Many people do not see neither recognize their true potential. You can touch their lives by encouraging them to realize their true capabilities. Show them the way and how they can move towards great success. Use your energy to empower, guide and offer opportunities to others. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ind5DVO3MBU

4. Mix your business, career or calling with philanthropy: Life itself is a free gift from God. The resources you have are loaned to you. The intellect and emotional intelligence are all part of the gifts that do not belong to you. Use them to lift someone, reward someone and do not expect any payback, praise or recognition. Just do it, learn more on: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2596770290560657&id=1538104626427234

5. Share your knowledge with others: Say no to selfishness and bury any sense of pride in you. Life without secrets is the best that there is. Be open on your dealings and let your ‘Yes’ always be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ always be ‘No.’ Live not to praise people but to uplift them. Share the experiences and the know-how that you have accumulated over time on a book, a blog, a YouTube channel – here is one of my many YouTube topics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lhbAm2eKQQ – You can also share your knowledge through direct interactions and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/georgeoptiven/ or through any other relevant social media platform. I have tried it and writing on this blog is my way of sharing knowledge with you, my valued reader.

The national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) resumed its direct flights between Nairobi and New York on Sunday.

In a tweet, KQ announced the move and topped it up with an offer to passengers who book their flights before December 10 that they will enjoy discounted prices.

Welcome back to the Big Apple! Today we resume our service between Nairobi and New York, and we can’t wait to welcome you on board. Book your ticket via https://t.co/hitS3Whxtp before December 10th to enjoy discounted rates ✈️🌎 *Disclaimer – video from our pre-COVID archives pic.twitter.com/1kET4h0kRK

“Welcome back to the Big Apple! Today we resume our service between Nairobi and New York, and we can’t wait to welcome you on board,” the airline said.

The national carrier last operated the passenger flights using the Nairobi-New York route in April after disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

KQ resumed international flights in August after suspending all its operations in March following the government’s directives after the firsts case of Covid-19 was confirmed in Kenya.

On Saturday, October 31, KQ announced that it had postponed New York flights’ resumption.

Through a notice, the airline said the decision to postpone the flights was informed by the increased cancellation of flight bookings to New York.

“We regret to announce that due to increased cancellations of flight bookings to New York City, we have pushed back the resumption of our service to this destination to November 29. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused,” read the statement then.

Kenya Airways inaugurated direct flights to the US in October 2018, cutting the journey to the US by 15 hours and by October 2019 KQ had flown at least 105,084 passengers after completing 594 flights to and from New York.

Bodaboda chama grows into a multi-million shilling housing cooperative

A journey of a thousand many miles starts with a single step. A Nakuru-based bodaboda operator’s self-help group proved this in its growth. Driven by the ambition to have something to take home once they couldn’t ride any more, ten bodaboda operators from Barut, Nakuru West in 2015 formed Kianjahi Group, pooling a minimum savings of Sh100 per week per person.

“Being a bodaboda operator is a risky job and has serious effect on one’s health especially if you don’t dress properly for the cold. After attending a seminar in Machakos we decided to start making savings,” said Benson Sigei, the group chairperson.

The group grew as more members joined in 2016. After evaluating their progress, the members increased their weekly savings to Sh200 and eventually to Sh1,000.

“Before the year ended we were nearly 100 members. Our savings were growing and we had to come up with plans which some members considered as too ambitious and pulled out,” says Sigei. With savings of nearly Sh2 million, they bought a 1.6-acre piece of land which was previously a sand quarry.

“It cost us Sh2.1 million in buying the land and rehabilitating it to usable standards. We embarked on making savings for constructing houses which would be of similar design,” he said.

To make this possible they converted the group into Kianjahi Housing Cooperative Society Limited and introduced Sh15,100 registration fee and minimum share capital of Sh60,000 payable in Sh500 weekly instalments.

AmpThe group started the construction of two-bedroom houses in a gated community model.

“Every member now contributes a minimum of Sh1,500 for savings every week. Those yet to clear their share capital make an additional payment of Sh500. This amount does not exert great pressure on the riders since the majority make nearly KShs1,000 per day.

The group then started the construction of two-bedroom houses in a gated community model where four houses sit on every 50 by 100 feet plot. The cooperative completed the construction of the first 50 units majority of which have already been occupied.

“We took a Sh15 million loan and in addition to our savings we bought an additional acre of land at Sh2.1 million. In the first phase, we have constructed 52 housing units. 35 members have already moved in,” said the vice-chairman.

The cooperative has bought a third parcel of land on which they intend to set up houses for all members. Members who moved in during the first phase like pay Sh2,000 per month. Sh200 goes to savings and Sh1,800 going towards offsetting the cost of construction. The payment for the houses is spread over seven years.

Enough is Enough: Kenyan man in US relocates to motherland to become a farmer

In a bold move and which took great courage, a former Kenyan Diaspora man Kunga Kihokia who was born and raised in Miami Florida has moved back to Kenya, bought a 20 acres piece of land and established an organic farm in Murang’a.

Initially, Kunga had planned to be in Kenya for three weeks 5 years ago but after what he says was the realization of the problems affecting Kenyans because of western lifestyle which he himself was struggling with, he felt strongly to start an organic farm to address those problems.

Kunga has built a water tower to use gravity that allows the water to get pumped and distributed  through  irrigation into the field. Everything in the farm is powered by solar energy and he has dug a borehole that supplies enough water for the farm. Watch the video, be inspired  and enjoy.
