Download My Life Sentences – A True Story for FREE

Hello! I apologize for taking a little too long to post something! I have been doing certain things (other side projects) and following the progress of my country’s election [Kenya]. I hope everything is going good for you.

Today(starting Wednesday 3/6/2013), I am going to give my book away for FREE on Amazon. I have been waiting for this for a while now and I figured I should do it now and then extend my reach to other platforms like smashwords and Barnes and Noble. So here is what I am going to do:

If you own a kindle tablet, an android tablet, a smart phone, or any other type of gadget that accepts applications, then you are all set. Oh, wait, I have to also mention the fact that you need an appetite for true stories (like the nearly 10,000 others who have read the book already). I normally tell people to read the reviews first: like these two I grabbed from Amazon:

my-free-book-giveaway

You can also read more reviews by visiting my Amazon page before making your decision.

When you are done reading the reviews, you can grab your copy by downloading it to your device (including your computer if you don’t own the above mentioned tablets). Here is the snapshot of the book:

I hope you find this book inspiring.

Thank you!

Quora – The partner that never disappoints!

A friend of mine recently introduced me to Quora and I dismissed him at first. I quickly looked at the sample content he shared with me and moved on to the next email I was supposed to read. It took me a while to realize that I had made a mistake.

quora

Here is why I was missing out on some priceless information during the days that I was not using Quora: The real experience, the best answers you can get from real people, the idea that you can ask a question anonymously and get what you need, the fact that it is free for all and much more.

Assuming you have a really personal question that you cannot publicly ask someone (face to face), just hop on to Quora and within a few hours, you will receive answers. Think about anything, technology, business, life, politics among other subjects, you will not be disappointed! Instead of wasting time on  sites like Facebook or Twitter (oh no, I know you are not wasting time, sorry), Quora puts things to perspective.

There are certain questions that most humans ask themselves. Queries about life, what to do when your wife is spending two hours at the store while you are waiting in the car or what to do when you are 35 years old and feeling like crap. Most often, you will notice that by just noticing that you might have wasted so much time in your life, you have taken the first step towards self-awareness!

So, let me make this easier for everyone by shortening my post and giving you a minute to pay a visit to Quora .

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation to Quora whatsoever. I am just a loyal user whose life has been changed by the great content generated by Quora. The fact is, having the right information is not enough. Taking action is what matters. Put the two together and you will never be the same again!

Thank you.

Ten Interview Questions For The Next Big Thing

What is the working title for your book?

Answer: My Life Sentences – A True Story

Thumbnail3761402Where did the idea come from?

Where do I start describing this? In brief, this not beinga work of fiction, you would imagine it being totally different as far as ideas are concerned. This is about everything I have been through, each step of the way. The lows and the highs. After struggling through certain things in life and being fortunate enough to have what I have at the same time, I decided to share my personal story by writing a book!

What genre does your book fall under?

Non-fiction (Autobiography as many would call it).

Which character would you choose to play your character in a movie rendition?:

I thought about this really carefully and I settled with Lance Gross!

lance gross

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

That is a really tough question! Either way, I will give my best shot. I (author), had to make a decision as to whether I should continue my dreams or give up!

Was your book self-published or represented by an agency?

I decided to take the self-publishing route through both Amazon and Createspace (which is an affiliate of Amazon). There are several reasons but I will mention the obvious: It is totally free. Secondly, the royalties are 70% for ebooks and relatively higher for print! Self-publishing is the way to go if you don’t want to wait years for an agency that will pay you peanuts.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

It took a while to complete writing my first draft. That was because I kept debating whether I should actually publish my personal story for the world to see or keep it to myself. I had been dreaming of writing a book for years and when time was right, I bought some pens and a note book and started writing! Since I didn’t have to do a lot of research (everything was within my fingertips), it took me a relatively shorter time than other genres would take.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

Good question. Let me see, well, I think after going through the challenges that I went through, and still being fortunate enough or as I would say, blessed, all I had to do was to look around me, see where I had been from, and picture the future. That inspired me more than anything else.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Do you love travelling the world? If you answered yes, then my book is based on two different continents! That is, part of it in Africa and the other part in the United States. Difference in cultures is made quite clear and all sorts of stereotypes are hands-on. Has someone ever asked you if you lived on a tree? I didn’t think so. Well, I have been asked that. Or whether I lived with wild animals like lions or cheetahs. Crazy world!

Next week, stay tuned for more posts in The Next Big Thing blog hop. :

That should be enough for now, right? Thank you for reading this post. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. See you soon!

Dear Barack Obama: US President,

Hello Barack Obama. I am honored to select you as the first president in my list of those I am writing to through my blog. Congratulations on winning re-election this year. From the heights of Washington to the corners of Africa, you are an inspiration to many, including myself. I however have a few issues that I feel I must share with you.

It would take a naive individual a small amount of effort to notice the gridlock in Washington today. For me, I have been watching and following every part of it. Honestly, it is utterly disappointing. The question is: what are you going to do about it? I fully understand that it take compromise on both sides to make something happen. Can the same people who voted to elect you count on you and if so, how are you going to convince them?

There are more things I would like to talk about but I will make the list shorter and clearer. Immigration reform is just one of them. The national debt is another one that is screaming for attention. What about unemployment? I am not a politician and yet I understand that spending more money on things that are not important will eventually bite. 

As far as immigration is concerned, there is much to be said especially when families are on the line. The problem is that no one is talking about it except during election seasons. I have always believed that true leadership exist no matter what other politicians are doing out there to make it a myth.

Mr President, every day, I get reminded of the fact that both soldiers and innocent people are dying in the middle east. The problem is that this is 2012. Why are we fighting? I am not naive but I ask you, when will all these end? Can you end the war in Afghanistan and bring the soldiers home? I am sure their families would rather have them at home. Their children would love to see them every morning. We do not need more wars. I would rather go down the history books as the one who ended the war rather than the one who started one!

Finally, I hope 2013 will be a better year for not just the American people but also for the rest of the world. Please ask your fellow leaders in Washington (Republicans and Democrats) to put people first before lobbyists. I am sure that is what the citizens would like to see. I believe that is why they were elected. I hope my message is clear. Let us get to work.

I do not look forward to hearing from you but if by chance you receive this letter, instead of writing(and of course I would love to see that happen), please use that time to solve the problems and challenges faced by America and the world. Thank You.

Note: Please say hi to Michelle and your beautiful daughters. Seriously. Thank You.

Get Out And Vote – Voting Rights

Hi everyone,

Aren’t you glad that the election season is just 48 hours away from its end? Think of it this way: thousands of hateful commercials and attack ads. We are already watching too many fashion and car infomercials and now, every minute does not pass without hearing ‘I approve this message‘. It seems every side of the isle will say anything they can get away with and hope that the undecided Americans will buy that crap.

Now, the reason why am urging people to go vote on Tuesday or on any day before that as long as your state allows early voting is this: Not all people in this world have the freedom and right to vote. Heck, women are still, in other countries, fighting to overcome this obstacle. So, if you have that right to vote, exercise it. Most people ignore such events as taking part in elections and then later they complain after whoever is elected screws them up. The best to do is get up and cast that vote.

The most amazing part of freedom is the ability to vote for whoever you want without being forced. That sure smells good right? You see, one thing that breaks our hearts – and if you are not heart-broken at any time, good for you; when our votes seem to mean nothing, have no impact at all. What is the point of voting? Remember Al Gore and Bush? If you are a Kenyan, remember what happened in 2007 election? It gets messy when politicians refuse to concede defeat. (One west African leader once said – there are two options for us “We either win or we win“. That is not a typo. What he meant was that if he lost, he would not agree to any defeat. People died because of that evil-minded dictator.

Thank goodness, America is not that kind of nation. So, again, go vote and express yourself. This election is crucial as far as where the nation will be in 2013 and years to come.

I have tried to be neutral as far as who is better when it comes to leading this country forward. Good luck and I hope that we all have a fabulous week.

Thank you and please remember to vote or sorry, I meant subscribe to my blog and drop me some comments!

NB: All these are my personal opinions and the decision to vote and who to vote for are personal and important!

Why You Should Make It In America

Hi everyone, I hope you are doing great or perhaps better than the day before. Today, am going to point out some of the things I have in mind and particularly those that explain why you should be able to make something happen in America. Don’t get me wrong, you might give an argument against it or for another nation and I respect your opinion.

Most of us have read, heard or experienced the wildly known American Dream and honestly, sometimes it turns out to be a totally different animal to face on your own. Whether you are an American or not, I am going to share some of my own reasons why you should make it in America and I will repeat, they are my opinions and so, read them at your own risk (although there is no obvious danger resulting from it).

  • If you are the kind of foreigner that knows little about it, well, you are in for a treat. I definitely do not want to sound like some kind of a traitor or sissy for saying this but I will say it anyway. Most of us are not looking for freebies, and that is definitely the spirit you need if you want to achieve something anywhere on earth. If you sit on the couch watching the Jersey Shore on television, then you are just taking the world back. If you get off your couch, you can do something worth doing.
  • Quite often, I hear people complain about how there are no jobs and stuff like that. Really? You see, when you don’t have a job to do, make it a full time job to look for one. What about that huh? That is why America is a place where you can start from nowhere and end up somewhere. If you loose your job today, seriously search for a new one, you will find it. I am not just giving empty praises here, after all, no one pays me to say this.
  • Obviously there are other stumbling blocks to success, and that is independent of where you are. Sometimes, it is the governments and other times, yourself. Consider someone who knows very well that he or she is not ready to buy a house yet. Instead of waiting a little more, he/she jumps straight to it without thinking. When the banks come knocking at the door for mortgage default, then they start realizing that they made the wrong decision in the first place. American dream gone awry. Think first. Save, then spend!
  • Look around, if you find another place that pays Software Engineers the highest salary in the world, call me maybe, and I will see what we can do about it. Trust me on this one, I know the rent is so darn high but still worth it. If you work hard, just hard enough not to kill yourself, you will succeed. That is why I truly believe in hard-work.
  • I am not saying everybody should pack their bags and fly to the States. No. Maybe my message is not even meant for those who are not here. Maybe it is meant for my neighbors, or for myself.<3. In simple words, sometimes we overlook what we already have around us. We often look far away for what we think we need and yet we could as well look into ourselves and see how surrounded by possibilities and opportunities we are. No one will force you to work hard. No one will change how you view things. You can only be the change you dream of.
  • Finally, I must say this with a fervent heart, that we all have a role to play in this world. What is your role? (Shakespeare: ‘The world is a stage……’). If we keep blaming others for our failures, how will that help us make it anywhere? If we cannot make it here, how can we make it anywhere else? Think about how fortunate you are and then do something about it. Exeunt.

I really don’t like writing too much. I should definitely stop here. I hope you have a great day, a day filled with insight and hope. A day like no other. A better view and perspective of tomorrow. You know that you own your destiny, defend it. Goodbye.
