After 4 years of being a stay at home mum, completing my Masters and holding 4 successful annual poetry awards for Ugandan women, I am now ready to start making money. How am I going to do this?
I am not an aggressive business woman; neither do I own property across Naguru which I can sell. I have never been a Member of Parliament in Uganda. Going the old-fashioned job hunting way? Well the thought did cross my mind. I am actively seeking ways to make money while still maintaining my poetic, children-loving self. This is the year for me. 2013 is the year. If not this year, then when? If not me, then who? That’s a quote I got from Muthoni Garland of Storymoja in Nairobi. She said, that if you want to start something, ask yourself, if not me, then who? I love that-living on edge, taking risks, thinking bigger than my super ego.
I am now in this remarkable place called Life which no capitalist, theorist or theologist has defined. It is my space. Need to make it right this year. I need to get this right. Happy New Year.
