Coffee & Cigarettes

Updated: Nov 20, 2020

It turns out that I do my best thinking when on break, in between work meetings and over a steaming cup of coffee. Why is that? I believe its because its also the only time I get to unplug, go out onto the balcony, be it for just 15 mins, with my phone indoors. So that chyme of a new message, or ringtone sound isn't distracting my trail of thought. So what is it that I think about with a cappuccino in one hand and a cigarette in another?! "Lots of things".


Let me share what I was pondering on most mornings in the last 10 months, after my latest birthday in January 2020.


Well, I have recently been anxious about retirement, the looming mid life moment where you think about whether or not in 10 yrs, when the younger, sharper, faster and more aggressive version of you is threatening your comfortable career and lifestyle, if you will be ready to let go, move on into blissful retirement, and remain comfortable. Are you ready? I am 35 years old and if my salary doesn't come through promptly at month -end for 3 months, changes will have to be made. I detest this feeling, and so brings us to present day.



eriences. Honestly, took more strategic thinking to build cost effective models for the businesses than actual cash investment, as a proportion of our current earnings. If you would have asked me 3 years ago, I would have responded that I don't have the capital to start a business.


Our interests and passion for the products and services we intend to offer, our work experience and strategic choices have made it all possible at less than 10% of the funding we envisioned we would need upfront, so if you want something badly enough, it can be done with the right mindset and partnerships.


If your in any way, anxious about your financial future especially post retirement and have a great idea for a service and or product that people need and don't have, go for it !
