At some point in an entrepreneurial career a person has to start developing experience and learning actively about what they do best and what they should learn to do better, and the sooner they start learning actively the sooner they start being enterprising.
Marketing plays a vital role in successful business ventures. How well you market you business, along with a few other considerations, will ultimately determine your degree of success or failure. The key element of a successful marketing plan is to know your customers — their likes, dislikes, expectations. By identifying these factors, you can develop a marketing strategy that will allow you to arouse and fulfill their needs.
A lady's handbag contained her cell phone, ATM card etc was stolen.
_Thirty minutes later she managed to call her husband from her friend's telephone, telling him what happened._
SHORT LOVE STORY 1.I stood at the bus stop near the National bank with my earphones on.The Egerton welfare bus had taken long beforearriving.I kept on glancing side from side and watched people walk in diffrent direction with least interest.Just then, a cute lady came talking over the phone towards me.The smile she put on her face was heartmelting.She was fairly tall with long silky black hair thattouched almost the middle of her back, her eyes were shiny and attractive.I stared in her direction as she leisurely paced towards me.As she approached where i was standing, i quickly turned to my phone and started pressing it aimlessly in pretence.She walked passed me without throwing aglance!Just then, the bus screeched into the parking lot hooking loudily to alert those students whowere unware.As i climbed the second step in the bus, a thought came to me,"i will not be able to see this woman again, what the hell! This is a God given chance"I climbed down from the bus and paced in the direction of where she was walking.I stretched my neck over the crowded street and saw her black hair sway from side to side as she leisurely walked.I followed her at a safe distance admiring her figure from behind.I wasnt worried getting to school late. No.Just then, she pulled herself to a bookstall and started glancing at the books as she read the cover.I moved there,and pretended i wanted to buy a book. As she did, i went through the books picking a book after the other, read the cover and droppd it back to the stall.She accidentally touched a pile of books at the edge of the stall and in one fall,the books wentdown like an avalanche.I bent down assisted her to rearange the books back as our eyes met for the first time.She made me to blush alittle!She then left and walked along the street briskly glancing at her phone at some point.I followed her for i didnt know why i couldnt ask her name.She glanced at the back and noticed i was tracing her.I looked left,right, here there pretending i wasnt intrestd in her.She kept on glancing at the back maybe to catch me offgaurd,and that made me uncormfortable and at some point i bent downto tie my shoe laces,or i could turn and start walking in the opposite direction.I saw her cross the street and entered the building directly opposite Easy coach booking office.I couldnt cross immediately because of the damn traffic!I made myself past the slow moving cars and dashed into the bulding.As i made my way in, i saw her enter the Lift as the door closed swiftly, indicating 6th floor.I took the stairs climbing like a racing moving star.As i arrived on the 6th floor puffing and huffing,she dashed out from a certain office and my eyes met with hers!I stood still, my heart beat increased, i was dumbfounded.She smiled as she entered the lift. I quickly thought to myself and crept inside the lift too.I mastered my courage to talk to her.We kept on sneaking quick glancing at each other making sure we dont catch each other offgaurd.I wished the lift to get stuck so we can spend alot time with her.She then pressed GF button and the lift flew down.Upto this time i had not talked to her for i hadtensed to strike a chat.Neither had she.As the lift touched the ground floor,her phonerang but she didnt recieved.She paced towards the other side of the streetpeherps to catch a Mathree to her hood.As she crossed, an over speeding car raced towards her.I shouted pointing towards the car and ran to her.She had seen it and paced to the other side of the road!I saw the car directly towards me.People started to shout and screamed.The car hooted continously.I tried to pace,bt it was too late, the silver coloured roaring subaru was about to hit me when my 6AM morning prayer alarm went a burst!What a nightmare!Enjoy yo week guys. Love u.

Ezra and Thomas joined a company together a few months after their graduation from university.
After a few years of work, their Manager promoted Ezra to a position of Senior Sales Manager, but Thomas remained in his entry level Junior Sales Officer position.
Thomas developed a sense of jealousy and disgruntlement, but continued working anyway.
One day Thomas felt that he could not work with Ezra anymore.
He wrote his resignation letter, but before he submitted it to the Manager, he complained that Management did not value hard working staff, but only promoted only the favoured!
The Manager knew that Ezra worked very hard for the years he had spent at the company; even harder than Thomas and therefore he deserved the promotion.
So in order to help Thomas to realize this, the Manager gave Thomas a task.
“Go and find out if anyone is selling water melons in town?”
Thomas returned and said, "yes there is someone!"
The Manager asked, "how much per kg?"
Thomas drove back to town to ask and then returned to inform the Manager; "they are 13.50 per kg!"
The Manager told Thomas,
"I will give Ezra the same task that I gave you. Please pay close attention to his response!"
So the Manager said to Ezra, in the presence of Thomas;
“Go and find out if anyone is selling water melons in town?”
Ezra went to find out and on his return he said:
"Manager, there is only one person selling water melons in the whole town.
The cost is 49.00 each water melon and 32.50 for a half melon.
He sells them at 13.50 per kg when sliced. He has in his stock 93 melons, each one weighing about 7kg.
He has a farm and can supply us with melons for the next 4 months at a rate of 102 melons per day at 27.00 per melon; this includes delivery.
The melons appear fresh and red with good quality, and they taste better than the ones we sold last year.
He has his own slicing machine and is willing to slice for us free of charge.
We need to strike a deal with him before 10am tomorrow and we will be sure of beating last year's profits in melons by 223 000.00.
This will contribute positively to our overall performance as it will add a minimum of 3.78% to our current overall sales target.
I have put this information down in writing and is available on spreadsheet.
Please let me know if you need it as I can send it to you in fifteen minutes."
Thomas was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and Ezra.
He decided not to resign but to learn from Ezra.
There's an old story of the boy who stood on a sidewalk, waiting for a bus. A man walking by spotted the boy and gave him some gentle instruction. "Son," he said, "if you're waiting for the bus you need to move to the street corner. That's where the bus stops for passengers."
