MY LAST BLOG OF THE YEAR AND MY RESOLUTIONS FOR 2015

BLOGGING FUN

I want to make this my final blog for 2014! I have had frustrations and plain old fun on this blog. I am not social media expert but I have learnt as I blog. I have had some positive feedback, tonnes of criticism and plenty of awesome moments.

BLOGGING A LOT

 Now almost 900 viewers or should I call them visitors later I have written on all subjects and topics I liked. I have written about farming, genocide in Zimbabwe committed by Rhodesian forces, praised Robert Mugabe land reform, Zimasset, sold my  business network services and even locked horns with  two very big companies on their pricing policies and customer care.

BLOGGING ACROSS BORDERS

I have heard visitors on my blog from around the world and I have wondered why people have interest in my blog. I have seen some country flags on my feedjit counter that I have never seen in my very long fifty years on this planet. I am now ready to sell my ideas, my services on this blog and enjoy myself while doing it. I have a resolution for 2015—I am going to blog more and have some good clean fun while I am at it too!

BLOGGING MONEY

I have met some very good people on my blog and someone even promised me that he could make my blog into a +Huffington Post- for a fee of course. You know- Huffington Post, that blog that went on and made millions of dollars. I have had people who read my blog and advised me to quit blogging- what a cheek lot. I have a new resolution for 2015—I am going to blog more and earn more.

BLOGGING COMMON NONSENSE AND CENTS

My +Google adsense account got suspended on my first blog and I would not give up. I blogged on and as I blog now there is a credit on my account. It is not much but I did earn something from my blog and those who had the cheek to discourage me can go hang. I did tell everyone I blogged about common nonsense and I love it! I have a resolution for 2015- I am going to blog more, make more money and have more fun.
Finally I would like to thank the likes of  people at +Google ,+Jeff Bullas, +Tanya Aliza, Tendai weSmoko and my awesome EMMIN Consult network team of resellers. Thank you and let’s get into 2015 in a big way.

EMMIN RESELLERS TRAINING KIT AND TIPS

RESELLERS TRAINING KIT AND TIPS
 As a new reseller communications is necessary to bridge the gap so as to grasp the basics of building up your company registration business.These tips I acknowledge  borrowing from +gopal keith ideas, my sponsor at SFI. The frequency of communications will vary depending on the following factors;

NEW RESELLERS

As a new reseller the communications should be often as maybe two to three times a week for a month to get a strong foothold of the company registration and consultancy business. The communications will be centered on company registration process, knowing your co resellers, and how to get extra business and earn commission.

 These are the essential areas of concern for new resellers and there has to be robust communications to get an understanding of the network business. After grasping the fundamentals then communications process still continues to reinforce and to keep abreast.

TEAM BUILDING

For team building communications with consultants and fellow resellers is necessary once a week to seek advice on how to build a cohesive team and progress together.

UNRESPONSIVE CLIENT

There could be a possibility that your client maybe unresponsive. This calls for more frequent communication with your clients. Perhaps communicating about at least two times a week should help builds up your potential client and business base.

FREQUENCY OF COMMUNICATION WITH PRINCIPAL CONSULTANTS

Communication with consultants is the key to success in your business. So you need to communicate with your principal consultant at least once a week to guide you through this process.

 LEAD TIME

It is normal to have a lead time for the processes. So constant communication with your principal consultant is necessary and could get you faster responses. This also cuts down on the workload and frustration from your clients. It is important to tell client realistic lead times.

PRINCIPAL CONSULTANTS WEEKLY SUPPORT
Principal Consultants do carry out weekly support and in a way some communication is always maintained for resellers. The various means of communications are many and includes my blog www.edmorembuzanamlambo.blogspot.com,mobile and Email etc.

To sum up communication is an essential tool to build up your business and should always be maintained with your principal consultant in order to get a firm grasp of the network business and disseminate your knowledge to your clients and fellow resellers.

WE ARE ALL BEING ROBBED BY ECONET

I own a dual sim android smartphone which run on Econet and Telcel lines.
 My device allows me to select which line to receive data with.

I have noticed that when I recharge my Econet line with a dollar and buy 5 Megabytes of data even when I do not use it or make a single call my airtime will be exhausted in less than four hours.

I have compared the same with my Telcel where I have bought the same amount of airtime and checked on the balance after four hours I will still be having 4.89 Megabytes and my balance of $0.50. Remember my phone uses the same applications and it is in standby mode and I am not using it !!!!

I do not have any background applications running but you still find your balance reduced.

It is clear that Econet is robbing most of us of our hard earned dollars. Where can we complain or report this criminal act. I challenge Econet on this and I have already complained and visited their offices in Harare and Mutare. 

At the moment I continue to receive “News” which I have not requested for and I have been charged for a service I do not want. I have made several visit to their offices my complaint has not been taken seriously.

I have written about this and other on my blog www.edmorembuzanamlambo.blogspot.com my mobile number is +263773037230 and have complained to Econet_support on twitter and my problems have not been solved

MOBILE FREEBIES

 PAYBACK TIME FOR THE NETWORKS

There is war for freebees going on and it is payback time for the long suffering consumer who has had to pay even for free services offered by the social media firms like Facebook and Whatsapp. All three networks have some free offer.

Consumers who have lines from the three mobile services can migrate from one service provider to another to enjoy unlimited free services. I am one of those who have all three networks Netone, Telcel and Econet.

FACEBOOK
Telcel is offering zero Facebook for free. Zero Facebook is Facebook without the frills. There are no pictures. You get charged for clicking on links and embedded pictures that take you out of zero Facebook. So you see it is not 100% free.

TWITTER
Econet is offering twitter for free. You also pay for clicking on links and pictures. This network is rationing the service and you may fail to access it. This I believe is unfair to the consumer.

FREE AIRTIME
Netone is offering free airtime on Netone to Netone calls and free data depending on the amount you pay.
Well if you do not want to miss on these free offering you need to buy all lines from the three networks and enjoy them. Good luck!!!!

MY BEEF WITH ECONET ZIMBABWE

THE BEEF

I do not know if I am the only person who has a beef with Econet Wireless Zimbabwe. I will admit I have seen similar complaints on Twitter and Facebook and I am wondering if Econet is doing anything about the complaints.People are being charged for a service they have not received!!! Are you a victim too?

MY COMPLAINTS
Here is a blow by blow account of my complaint on twitter which has not been solved as I write. I bought a monthly Facebook bundle on Saturday, 23 August 2014. I could not access Facebook on its application or via phone browser and opera mini.

On the 30th of August, I bought $2.00 airtime and I was able to access Facebook via its application on the understanding that I was accessing it on the monthly bundle facility only to discover that my $2.00 had been reduced to zero. I then twitted to Econet Zimbabwe.

THEIR RESPONSE
The response I got was not adequate and dismissive.
“Hi Edmore, As long as the bundle is active you will not be charged for accessing Facebook.”
I was surprised because I was charged and that was the reason I raised the complaint in the first place. What has happened to my $2.00 in a space of 2 hours was what I wanted to know and no one Econet Zimbabwe could explain that to me.

MY FURTHER COMPLAINT AND THE RESULT
I then pursued the matter further and I complained to Econet and retwitted my displeasure to my followers. I got various responses from my followers and I know I am NOT alone I feel people are being fleeced of their monies by Econet Zimbabwe to the extent that people are now echoing #Ecofraud on twitter. People are aware of this chicanery and are informing others.

Most of the followers got a message just like the one below when they insisted with the same complaint.
“Downloading the FB app, clicking on links and embedded pictures that takes you outside of FB will attract normal data rates.”

In my case, I am well aware that CLICKING ON LINKS AND EMBEDDED PICTURES would cost me money and I will not do that. I have gone further and explained to Econet Zimbabwe that I will not do such a stupid thing as I value my hard earned dollar.

Now if you are like me, you will have to pursue the matter further. You will get the following explanation from Econet Zimbabwe.

 Econet Zimbabwe: “Which Browser are you using? When using the Facebook bundles please make use of the default device browser or the Facebook application because Opera Mini is down.” I did that and I still have not accessed the Facebook Bundle.

WHO WILL REFUND ME FOR A SERVICE I NEVER GOT
 The month is now over, who will help me recover the money that I have not used? Is it not fraud to sell a thing or service you will not deliver?

ECONET WILL CHARGE YOU FOR SERVICE YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED

I was not convinced by the response I got on twitter so I paid a visit to the Econet Shop in First Street in Harare. Here I came face to face with the truth of the extent of the fraud. The very rude lady who assisted me told me blankly. She told me that so long I have subscribed to the service; money will be deducted even if I do not access the service. She also told me if you do not STOP the service Econet will continue to deduct the money for the service and charge you.

THE STOP TRICK

Econet is continuously spamming our inboxes with messages and advise you to send STOP if you do not want to receive the messages. It is a trick as you get charged for sending the STOP message.This is robbery.

THE FAKE BUNDLES

Do not be tempted to buy the so-called bundles. I exhausted my weekly data bundle in less than two hours. It is a hoax!! I do not know why they are called weekly bundle when I spend less than two hours. That is daylight robbery!!


#ECOFRAUD DO EXIST BE WARNED
 Now if you have been treated the same please tell this to others. Remember to #Ecofraud your complaint if you are on Twitter and Facebook. Good luck

THE MASS GRAVES OF RHODESIA


THE HIDDEN SECRETS OF RHODESIAN WHITES

The bodies of the victims of white Rhodesian forces of the Chimurenga War are still being discovered in mass graves. Hundreds of bodies have recently been discovered in Penhalonga, near Mutare, around former white commercial area.

There are still some white commercial farmers who participated in the war who are still in the area. These and other farmers who are still in the country must be held accountable, not only for the deaths of the victims but for concealment of the mass graves on their farms.

The above, murdering a person, not reporting deaths and concealment of bodies are criminal offences. The State must simply look up who the previous owner of these properties are at the Deeds Office and lay criminal charges against the former commercial farm.

The VICTIMS

The victims in the mass graves includes unarmed women, children and armed liberation combatants. The victims have not been documented and are being identified using traditional spirit mediums.
The government should at least document the events and location of exhumation sites.

 These sites of mass graves must be recorded for the purpose of identifying the killers and the victim. Identifications will also assist if compensations of the victims should arise.

COMPENSATION
The family of these victims I think should be compensated. I propose a Special Parliamentary Committee must be set up to look into ways of funding of the exhumation of mass graves and identifying the victims using DNA technology.
The funds must be sourced or set off against the compensation claims of the white commercial farmers on improvements to their farms.

SETTING OFF OR KURIPA NGOZI

It is true that every white commercial farmer around these mass graves must have known of their presence and their contents and they had a moral responsibility to report and acknowledge them. The failure to report these graves is not only criminal but a total rejection of Robert Mugabe call of National Reconciliation of 1980.

These Rhodesian criminals must pay for their collective sin by compensating the families of their victim. Our culture and tradition calls it “kuripa Ngozi”. Let those be tormented soul be compensated.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

The State and media are not doing enough to highlight the Rhodesian atrocities and excesses. Let us talk about it. It is the State’s duty to take care of its citizen ,dead or alive. It is the media duty to report the crimes of yesteryear as they are unearthed in those mass graves.

OPEN LETTER TO SABMILLER TO REDUCE BEER PRICES

Dear Maxen,
I would like to thank you for your response and your concern.

I understand you have reduced the “recommended selling price” of your products by a bigger percentage than the cost reduction on your product. Your reduction translate to $0.40 per crate.
In our Big Brown Bottle Promotion at Magumbe Bottle Store the selling price on quarts is $1.67 which beats your so called “recommended retail price” and we are passing on a discount whooping  $0.33 per bottle to our cash strapped customers. This translate to a total discount of $3.96 per crate as compared to the $0.40 which you are offering me.

My facebook post is a plea to you to wake up to economic realities. We used to have three delivery per week  and as I write we now have one delivery per week and the delivery truck is getting smaller too!!

The price of beer has risen from below $12.00 in 2009 to the current price of $17.40 per crate. Inflation in the same period has fallen from over 17%  to -0.01. The rate of the rand against the dollar has also fallen over the same period. WHY HAVE YOUR PRICE CONTINUED TO RISE?? That is my million dollar question to Delta Beverages.

I am both a consumer and seller of your product and I feel pity on myself and other drinkers. I also happen to understand my market and that is why  I am running the BIG BROWN BOTTLE PROMOTION !!!!

Regards,

Edmore Mbuzana Mlambo

P. S:  A pint of beer cost 4 rands in South Africa I am serious thinking of emigrating there.

ZIMASSET: Questions without answers?

Following the recent introduction of Zimasset I have so many questions on how the program can help the ordinary person on the street and how we as citizens can facilitate its implementation. No one is selling this program to the common people but I feel the selling points to the ordinary povo are eradication of poverty and corruption.

WHY NOT CARRY OUT A ROADSHOW ON ZIMASSET?

The government should carry out roadshows similar to the sanctions petition where ordinary people are told how Zimasset can be a tool for social and economic change. The roadshows will also highlight and articulate how corruption and poverty can be reduced if the policy is implemented.
People should be told of incentives on whistleblowing on corrupt activities. Government should be able to reward its citizens when they report cases of corruption; this will be an opportunity for government to have permanent checks and control over public funds.
What is the role of government departments like Ministry of Information, Indigenization, and Women Affairs, Education and Youth in sensitizing the people under their respective portfolio on the pro and cons of Zimasset?

WHAT IS ZIMASSET TO THE POOR?

Is Zimasset the answer to poverty and economic development for Zimbabwe or it is just another talking topic in bars and other social gathering like funerals and political rallies? Do we have the political will to tackle issues and implement?
What does it mean to the poor? Will it change their current situation or will it worsen it?

WHAT WILL BECOME OF THE UTILITIES?

How will Zimasset reduce rates to realistic levels?  What policies must be set in place to protect the public from extortionist and over staffed utilities?
Ideal rates and utility charges must be used as points of redistribution of wealth within a given economy. This calls for a fifth cluster on Public Utilities and Rates which will be able to have an oversight of charges being charged by other clusters.

 

 

WHAT WILL ZIMASSET DO FOR PUBLIC SERVANTS AND THEIR JOBS?

There is a need to go to Ministries, departments and sections that generates and collect revenues and take a detailed study of their activities. This will enable us to match and link revenue generating activities and the desired result of a particular utility. This will also allow government to direct savings to targeted areas of need,
The people have another unanswered question; is the current performance appraisal system aligned to Zimasset?
The civil servants who have been grossly underpaid or overcharged by utilities must get his or her just compensation through realistic performance management systems that cascade to utilities under their departments.
Civil servants have carried the burden of utilities and the government must take bold steps to reward them for their diligence and resilience since the year 2000.Has Zimasset addressed the concerns of the civil servants?

HOW WILL ZIMASSET REDUCE CORRUPTION?

The above approach will be able to identify areas where resources have been diverted and are being mishandled. It is known that poverty is the principle cause of corruption, not vice versa as a nation we have accepted this and corruption in turn drives poverty levels up.
Can we as a nation break this cycle by implementing Zimasset, and take decisive action?
 The top two priorities for Zimasset should be to tackle corruption followed by poverty reduction. Corruption and poverty reduction should both be targeted and be treated as a security issue.

WHAT ARE ZIMASSET DELIVERABLES?

Zimasset is being implemented by the highest office in the country the Office of the President and Cabinet that means the government has prioritized Zimasset. My questions are (1) What are the OPC deliverables?( 2) Is it how many corrupt people are arrested,or a sharp drop in poverty level or double digit economic growth rate?
The above questions must have answers from the authors and architects of Zimasset. When the people know the deliverables and answers, then the government will be able to sell this noble program. Yes we have it on paper now let us as a nation walk the talk.

A LAYMAN'S LOOK AT ROBERT MUGABE'S LAND REFORM PROGRAM


This is not a praise piece to Robert Mugabe but an expression of my personal experience of the impact of his policies on my life and my immediate community. I would like to highlight the positive aspects and effects of the land issue and land reform.

I am deliberately leaving out the negatives which the so called independent media have by now discussed, twisted, distorted and exhausted the propaganda rhetoric on behalf of those the land was taken from. This is the propaganda that has resulted in sanctions being slapped on Zimbabwe.

My story, and this is the story of our people, began when I started renting a bottle store at Tambawaguta Business Centre in 2005 and I am still operating up to this day. This was in the midst and the height of the land revolution and I could hardly sell a crate of beer of the low incomes of the community around the business centre.

IMPACT OF THE LAND REFORM ON INCOME LEVEL

My sales were low in the beginning as most of my customers were urban workers and few commuters who passed through the highway.Farm workers from Burma Valley and the Vumba made up part of my customers but their incomes were very low but as the land reform progressed some of the farm workers and members of the local community became land owners. There has been a gradual increase in the income level of the people around the business centre as reflected by increase in business.

The new farmers are into timber harvesting, tobacco, maize and other cash crops and they can afford to stop and buy as they pass through on their way to and from town.
The land revolution has had a positive aspect on the income level on local households. Initially the people who were allocated land in the Vumba began harvesting timber and sawmills were established at our business centre. This development created employment for the locals especially the youths, the income had a ripple effect on the immediate micro-economy.

The increase of income levels had an amazing impact as  the locals were now employed as workers in the  timber processing industry. Those who had land could afford to hire labour to attend to their fields and this had a ripple effect on the immediate micro economy.

The locals would now afford to by basic farming implements, fund electrification of their homes and improve their lives. Cellphones and satellite televisions could now be afforded and the local shops were electrified .The local shops could now be able to stock perishable goods as electric  freezers  and microwave stoves were now able to function.

CREATION OF MEANINGFUL EMPLOYMENT

The land reform program has created work and meaningful employment for the locals as the
skills which the youth acquired in the Vumba on timber processing are now being transferred elsewhere. Skills like machine operating, logging, mechanics, welding and management and marketing  which the locals have acquired have seen locals working in timber estates in Nyanga,Penhalonga and Chimanimani.

The local economy is benefiting directly and indirectly from the land reform program even though the timber in the Vumba has been depleted. Income earned elsewhere is being ploughed back into the local community.

It is my hope that the new farmers in Vumba start replacing the pine trees and create further continuous employment and income for the local community.

THE LAND REFORM AND LOCAL INFRASTRUCTURE

In 2005 the business centre had nine shops and of these only one had electricity and four were operating. The local joke was that if you want to see electricity you must go to Burma. The Burma electricity line was for the white farmers and it passed overhead of the community.

Today as I write only three shops out of the nine do not have electricity and eight shops are operating. The avaliabilty of electricity is a direct result of the land reform program and Rural Electrification program.Locals are now engaged in meaningful income generating activities such as welding ,hairdressing and other activities that need electricity.

THE LAND REFORM AND ROBERT MUGABE
It is my belief that those who doubt the land reform should look around their communities and see the positive impacts and acknowledge its successes. In my opinion we should applaud the country’s astute leadership and the vision of Robert Gabriel Mugabe.

Let us discount the Rhodesian propaganda which has been used to court sanctions against our country to the dustbin of history.It is my belief that without the illegal economic sanctions and the chicanery of the Rhodesian sponsored opposition  Zimbabwe would be in a better economic position than where it is today.

COACHING IS IT A GAME OR A PROFESSION

COACHING IS A GAME IT IS NOT A PROFESSION

Coaching  a profession or just mumbo jumbo? No I think it is a game or simulation. It can not be a profession since we have been playing coaching since kindergarten… do not tell this to the billion dollar worldwide coaching and mentoring industry.

I am here to save you money by offering you an insight into how I develop a coaching a mentoring program. I will be interested to hear my readers’ comments. You can go to my blog on http//edmorembuzanamlambo.blogspot.com or email your comments at embuzana@gmail.com .

The core business of a life coach is to direct an individual to achieve one or more objective in life.This entails giving mental , moral support and even material support to the client.
.
The word LIFE I have used on my clients.

L in LIFE

This is the first stage you Listen to your client and Learn the problems that are blocking  his or her  development. Take notes at this stage and sketch the development path that you and your client need to walk through to achieve the objectives.

I in Life

This ‘ i ‘ in life stands for ‘EYE’. The coach must be able to see beyond the client’s problem by internalizing the feelings, fear and hope of the client.

F in life

This is a critical stage of life coaching and where the F words and four letter words are used and your expectations both as a client may be at crossroads and frustration is the order of the day. This where we need to sit down and FORMULATE a life plan. I call it the survival stage where both coach and client must do a realty check and come up with a workable life plan.

The plan should have deliverables and timetable  which both parties must commit themselves religiously. The plan should also be resourced either in the form of fees or other form of payment.

E in Life

The E in life stands for engagement. We must engage with our client on all levels. The coach must be involved in the business and social life in order for him to develop strategies that are relevant to the development of his or her client. The coach can seek the assistance of workmates, family members and others within the client’s social circle.

The E in life stands for the end. Coaching as I have already say is game or simulation. It must come to an end where we evaluate our successes and failures both as a client and coach. We must look at the agreed deliverables and see if  we have met our objectives.

The evaluation stage can also be used to see the effectiveness of the  coach ,his or her coaching programme or regime.


I would like to conclude by saying anyone can be a  life coach, as long as  a person has basic knowledge of the subject matter and your able to come with a structured coaching program. So Coach welcome to the game.

THE 5 STEPS FOR GROWTH FOR THE SMALL RETAILER

5 STEPS FOR GROWTH

I am bottle store owner and I do not blog for a living. I blog for fun and I would like to share my experience with the world. I believe I am qualified to write on business since I have ran a lodge, three bottles stores and a home based business consultancy. I have closed the lodge and two of the bottle stores but I still do business consultancy for a living.

You and I have seen that little shop by the roadside as you passed. You will remember it from the time you were a child. It may be operating as a family business and it never grew but it has never closed either. It remains that small shop and it will never grow. I have always wondered why small business remain small and when I opened my first bottle store, I set out to live this challenge and come out with some solutions for growth.

This has been the challenge for both the rural and urban retailer. This challenge can be overcome by adopting simple and tried strategies that the big retailers use. This is what I did to increase my bottle stores from one to three (and I might also tell you how I was forced to decrease them to one in my next blogs). Here are the five solutions to growth and they are not in an order.

Increase your customer base

I know when we talk of growth in retail we visualize chains of supermarkets and lots of customers passing through the point of sales, now if I have one bottle store with ten crates and say 200 cigarettes it would be crazy to open a second branch as I will not have enough capital and stock.

The short term solution will be to increase our customer base. Customer bases are hard to increase but this can be increased by making your business visible through improved customer relationship management. There is nothing that beat good old advertising, sales promotions and word of mouth as ways to increase your customer base. Customers can won and reached through the social media channels such as Facebook It is a must that the customer base be increased, twitter, Google and other emerging social media forms on the internet.

I have opened a Facebook page for my bottle store and the responds have been wonderful and you can follow me <http//www.facebook.com/edmore.mbuzanamlambo> or like my bottle store page. My customers for the bottle store can also read my view on my blog at <http//edmorembuzanamlambo.blogspot.com>. You can follow me on twitter @mbuzana1
The increase of the customer base will result in the increase in turnover and this will spur the growth of the business and create a basis for further solutions.

Sell more products

Once you have increased your customer base and turnover, the next step is to increase the lines of product you sell. This will  result in a further increase in both turnover and the customer base.

Develop new products and services

This is the climax of the growth solution as you will now be able to introduce new goods and services because you will by now have the muscle and capital to your established customer base. In my case I might put a pool table or Wi-Fi in the bottle store. This process is the most important as the business owner must read both the market and competition as he or she introduce the new product and services.

Increase price of your goods and services

At this point the business owner the especially if he is the only one at a locationembuzana@gmail.com, like our perennial rural store can afford to increase  the price of his product to grow his business as he has no other option, expect the last solution below.

Open a new branch

I have now come to a point where I now have adequate management skills and in some case, skilled and experienced staff. My customer base keeps the tills ringing and I have enough stocks and my cash flow is health and I making profit, well this is the time to get a second wife…. No it is the time to open a second branch silly!!

The secret of opening a second branch is to set it up using existing stocks and staff. This will ensure a smooth take off. This is the last step in the growth process and we can start the cycle to get to the next level and open a third branch.

I have used my personal experiences to come up with this guide and I would greatly appreciate feedback both positive and negative. I have put my social media contact to enable us to interact so happy hunting.
