Blended Thoughts

A Poor Woman’s Plea


What if there was no internet? (Ok, I know I’m a blogger so yeah, I’m one to talk!). But say there was no site to visit where you could get financial advice and you had to rely on physical visits and phone calls to financial institutions. How many of us would actually make the effort? I don’t think I would. I think I would not invest in shares and I would not save and certainly would not have the hope of being wealthy.

I’m not trying to be cryptic. It’s just that I find myself overwhelmed sometimes at the many options that are now available. What if they were not there? In Kenya we complain at how the wealthy keep getting wealthier and the poor poorer but I think we are to blame. We have all these sources of information and publicized contacts that literally point us towards money yet we are still without!

So I think it’s high time we sorted ourselves out. Take that piece of paper and budget. Take that 20 shilling coin and enter an internet café and visit as many sites as possible jotting down addresses and telephone numbers to places that count. Put that one day aside where you dedicate it to knocking on doors, not looking for trouble or handouts, but looking for answers and solutions.

I will do my best to share my journey because I’m taking my own advice but be sure to meet me half way, ok?
