His radio show is listed among the most listened radios shows of all time,among presenters in the country he leads with the most followers on social networks. He keeps it low profile but different sources say he owns some assets . 
On his interview with  daily nation blog, he disclosed some things about him that may be of great inspiration to you.  Lets have a critical look at them .

Worked for free

I used to get paid Tsh5,000 (Sh240) per week and would get a salary increment of Tsh5,000 per year. Housemaids were making more money than I did.

Why did you stay for three years?

I needed the experience and I knew this was an opportunity to grow my name and build my CV. I gained a lot that I wouldn’t have got anywhere else. I could produce my own shows and other technical issues.

How were you surviving then?

I was living in a slum called Keko Machungwa for the three years in a house that didn’t have electricity. I would go and iron my clothes at work and sometimes even wash them there.

For most of us bringing your A game to a volunteering job isn’t a know manner. However with a vision, it is something you can do to build trust & familiarize yourself with the work.Using it as a ladder to your desired destination.

MILLARD AYO CAREER LADDER

Listened to advice

I think having people who that can offer constructive advice is very  important . Allow opinions that will surely improve you . Getting acquainted with people in your working niche , will also provide you with people you can share ideas with.

Build aunthencity 

You dont slander or post nudes to get hits, why?

I want to be accountable to the readers and this has really been helpful because people come to my website to confirm if a story is true or not. There are people who will not believe a story is true if I haven’t uploaded it on my site.

I always ensure I get a comment before I post an article on the website. People respect that.

Invest in his career

What is your secret?

Investing in the company. I used to use my last cent to ensure that I covered a story because I knew that if I did not take my blogging seriously, it wouldn’t grow.

That still hasn’t changed, I take some of my writers, and photographers with me to major events like the MAMAs and I pay for their air ticket, accommodation and food. It is not cheap but it is part of the investment.

OUTCOME 

How many people have you employed?

I have 14.

Is the website making money and how much?

Yes it does. I can’t really say how much but from $10,000 (Sh1 million) a month and above. We have sponsorships, and advertisers. Brands want to be associated with the website from CCM, to Airtel to many others.

You have a lot of followers on social media, over 1.3 million Followers, do you monetise that?

I have to monetise. To post an image on say, my Instagram page (745,000 Followers) goes for $400 (Sh40,000) and a video will be more. It is business at the end of the day.

Don’t you have personal endorsements?

Yes. I have an endorsement from SuperJet, Vodacom and Airtel. It’s about association and I am happy these companies want to be associated with Millard Ayo.

 

I am speechless.

HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR ALL UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

Published

on

Holiday time ,

A time we have been looking forward to since school started! Blink and share this post if you can relate!

Fun holiday activities

I am a big pro-balance , i believe in late nights, early mornings and coffee but i also believe it is essential to lay back in the Bahamas and have someone bring you a Cool Mojito . So what do you do when you have a month or two of rest. Read On.
1.Rest
A bit Clichè right? But how many of us actually rest at least half of the time during the holiday?

While it is sometimes inevitable to reply that email, Attend that client, making time to take care of you, catch up on your favourite tv show or just sitting and breathing helps clear your brain and make you even more productive.

2. Learn a skill.

What a time to be Alive! Your next skill is literaly a few taps away. This skill can be a hobby you have been looking to get better at like sewing, singing, piano , cooking or something intergral in your career like history taking for new clinical rotation students or something you have wanted to do on the side( you have been talking about how you do not have time, and now Its here! ).

One of the founders of Afyatoon , an animation start-up that provides health education actually learnt how to animate during his summer holiday.

There are some things that are not taught in school and you are probably struggling with such as speaking in public , budgeting , dressing well, healthy living & more. Take time to train yourself on that.

3. Work on your side hustle
Balancing between studies and work is a challenge. Sometimes they are all demanding our time and energy. The holiday time therefore is a great time to focus on this thing , give it a mega push and this push will even save you the hustle when school starts.

 

4. Learn, explore and grow.
It is really eye-opening to learn a new thing or get to understand a certain topic . This can be a great time to do that. There is vast majority of knowledge and information on blogs, social media and in the actual world for you to learn .

Be curious, google , check out some you tube videos . But most of Enjoy your holiday .

 

What are you doing this holiday?

 

Twentiesco consultation doors are open! Book your consulation today and lets walk  this adulthood  journey together.

4 Tips for successfull Business In Agriculture For Beginners..

Published

agribussiness sucess tips

I have always heard national leaders claim that Agriculture is the backbone of Tanzania. Infact I wrote a couple of essay discussing this same a few year back in secondary school.
However, I have seen more backs deformed, callous on their hands and accidents where you cultivated your leg instead of the land than I have seen these same people afford to treat any of these conditions.
I have also been hearing that farmers in the west are rich and unbothered.
But then do you think such farmers cultivate acres of land ,wait for rain (fingers crossed ) , uproot weeds, harvest and sell to the next buyer that can pay them something close to half their children’s school fees?
Agriculture is a pretty lucrative sector. And if you aim in these areas , you might make a fortune.

1.Quality
There is a big market we are not accessing in the western countries because of standard barriers. A large number of crops we produce are of a good enough quality. But what about the end products? Can they cross the Jk.Nyerere airport without causing a security shut down? Another issue that hinders these products is packaging. Poor packaging makes a product look cheap and not reliable.

2.Processing and Storage
Why do we pay these timewasters so much.
Because they process raw products. Turning sisal to .. and selling finished products has higher profit . . Plus how do you expect to make much of a profit when everyone is trying to sell the same thing before it rots. These products need to be stored well too so that their value stays and can be sold even after the season is over.

FAST MONEY IDEAS AND NOT TOO FAST

3.WHAT WOULD YOU FIND IN DOHA THAT IS IN KHARTOUM. ?
What is trending?
If you want to have a large market, go for products that are widely used in different places and some trending crops. Think Chia seeds, strawberries , pepper etc.

You can also contact restaurants for tenders so you have a market right away.
Let me let you in on a little secret a farmer told me.You do not need acres to farm. A green house is a perfect way to produce extremely quality crops that could sell in Antarctica for a million dollars . There is also an option of renting a farm .
That’s it fellaz ,As this weather moves you to cultivate other people, may you consider trying out crops. This is because agribusiness is worth investing in although it has not succeed to be as attractive as network marketing.
