*Editor’s note: Centonomy is a Kenyan organisation that  promotes  personal  finance literacy.   I am not affiliated with them or Ms. Caroline Mutoko in any way. I believe that this video from one of  their sessions is a powerful message to Kenyan millennials.

Ms. Caroline Mutoko is  no stranger to Kenyan media. She has been crowned as the queen of Kenyan radio  and  an anti-mediocrity ambassador. Recently at Centonomy’s open day, she shared the  financial conversations that we as Kenyans  should stop having and  why we need to examine the material that we ingest. I was personally challenged by the practical advice that  she offered.

In this video, you will learn:

  • The conversations that you should stop having with yourself (and others)
  • Why the phrase ” a single, young financially-stable man” is an oxymoron
  • The power of your payslip
  • The importance of time value of money
  • Why  Ms. Mutoko hates ideas
  • Men also have a biological clock
  • Why in the old she took a course in  oil, gas and mining and the importance of leveraging your skills.

She refers to a quote  from Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba  that was originally written by T.E. Lawrence:

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.
― T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph

Enjoy and have a productive week!
