What is your worth?

What is your worth?

“Pay me according to your company salary structure”, she replied to a question by one of the panel members at the end of an oral interview. Few employers want to give jobs to candidates that are not sure about your market value. It is difficult to add value to the business if you don’t understand your value. The ability to sell yourself is the number one priority for any individual. How do you study and attain a master’s degree, learn about pricing and marketing and fail to estimate your personal worth?

Who is rejecting you? Accept and move on

Who is rejecting you? Accept and move on

Rejection does not mean you should also despair. Most of the time, those who reject you open the way for you. Despite the rejection, you need to have a positive attitude to move ahead. Take the case of a millipede (ekigongoro in Runyakitara). Its defensive attitude is to stop and guard. Whenever a millipede is disturbed or poked, it instantly coils itself up. In the process, it loses time and its advantage to get to its destination. Time, once lost, is never regained.

It is not about the rejection. It is what you do when you are rejected that makes all […] Read more

Taxes, family finance and you

I come from Munteme village, Hoima district. In the early 1990’s, Munteme was like a ghost town. Old buildings with leaking roofs that had been left behind by the Indians following President Idd Amin’s mass expulsion of Ugandan Asians. With oil discovery in Hoima, a new sugar processing plant in Munteme village and the upgrading of Hoima-Kagadi road, the village is transforming rapidly.  And thanks to government’s approval of Kikuube district in 2015, a total budget of Ugx. 16.5billion has been approved in the 2018/19 budget to operationalize the district. This has attracted many people to the real “oil district”. […] Read more
