BUSINESS IDEA OF THE DAY: AN ADVERTISING POWERHOUSE Today we will use an example of photography but this concept can work for many more service businesses. For those interested for more, join the @mykocha February 2019 cohort of personal and business coaching sessions, use the link in the bio. 01 RECRUITMENT - Find 5-10 Photographers who are experienced and offering services in different categories such as Wedding pictures, Family portraits, corporate events, Brands, Model/ Landscape/ Drone photography etc. 02. AUTHORIZATION – Ask permission to use their images to advertise on their services on their behalf. Create a simple form where they can sign consent. 03. NEGOTIATION – Ask for a reasonable fee/ commission out of the payments for each customer you bring on board. 04. ADVERTISEMENT – grow a social media page and sponsor it with at least 20USD/ month, you can even develop a website/ blog, or pay for Google ads, advertise in schools, social media groups & companies. SUMMARY: If each photo-shoot is costing 70USD on average and your cut is 10% for example, it means you will be making 7USD/ photo-shoot and if you bring in 100 clients to 10 different photographers in 3 months, you will be making a minimum of 700USD. This can be your entry in becoming an advertising powerhouse; you can then venture into advertising for other services including TAXI’s, car rentals, designers, dry cleaners, mechanics, caterers, tailors, make-up artists, models, events and I can go on and on. If a service business makes 1000USD, your cut will be 100USD. Think about it. ALL THE BEST. . . #goals#TeamMaestros#mykocha#motivation#mentor#coach#coaching#entrepreneur#entrepreneurship#development#success#businessideas#business#investment#lifecoach#motivationalquotes#habits
TODAY’S TOP 3 TIPS: HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN YOUR SLEEP Hello, we are in a new era; where you don’t have to only depend on a salary at the end of the month and you don’t have to necessarily quit your job, you can make money in your sleep. Today I will share 3 ways you can create passive income streams, especially in this generation. 01. #RENTING OUT PROPERTY – Apart from renting out your house, nowadays you can rent out property from as a small as a coffee machine to furniture, TV screen, a jumping castle, a pool table, a vehicle, manufacturing machinery and many more things on a one-year lease. Anybody here with something to rent out? 02. INVEST IN #DIVIDENDS – beyond thinking of buying stock from big brands such as Google/ Sony/ Microsoft that have gone public. Listen in your country, right there in your community, there are small and medium-sized enterprises rising up, and you don’t always need to build your own companies, you can invest in such and get returns quarterly/ annually. Anyone here looking for investment and willing to issue out equity? 03. DEVELOP A #SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE – Nowadays the world is going cashless into mobile & digital formats, how are you taking advantage? #Netflix has more than 60 Million subscribers in the USA alone. So if each subscriber is only paying $10/ month, it means they are making more than $600M/ month from the USA community alone. You might have books or might have developed an online course/ blog/ podcast/ service, there are so many opportunities people can pay membership fee whether monthly/ annually. Are you having some ideas? Anybody here with a subscription service? WHICH ONE CONNECTS WITH YOU THE MOST?

AN OPEN LETTER TO HIRING MANAGERS Dear sir/ madam, when you INTERVIEW a candidate - Remember these 5 things: 1. Respect is a two-way street. Please respect candidates time and don’t keep them waiting. 2. If you know a candidate is not what you want, stop wasting their time with multiple interviews and tests. Only to get their hopes up. Have a heart! 3. Candidates invest so much time & effort, and even finances into preparing for interviews. The least you could do is read their resume and come to the interview prepared. 4. Once a candidate gives of their time to be interviewed. They deserve feedback. Stop leaving candidates hanging. Grant them closure. 5. Treat candidates as you would like to be treated. Don't judge a book by its cover. Life is unpredictable. The person you reject today, you may need their help tomorrow. It is sad to see the lack of respect and empathy, some recruiters and hiring managers show to jobseekers just because one is looking for employment. It's time we make the recruiting process more humane! - Inspired by Brigette Hyacinth.
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
THE POWER OF WRITTEN GOALS [How to turn Dreams into Goals] Your dreams only exist in your mind – only when you plan out your dreams and set a determined deadline, and 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. Turn your dreams into goals today. 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. Goal Setting is the first step in turning the invisible (dream) into the visible, take that step of faith today. All the best #LetsDOthis#TeamMaestros DON'T CHASE DREAMS CHASE GOALS.
