Studying Music

By: Kgabo Chuene Having done all my basic education in schools that offered no music and offered very minimal career counselling, music is something I actually fumbled into. Although I was always a part of the choir. The year that I changed degrees, I knew that Accounting was about to physically end my life, I knew that I loved music and the most important thing, I had FIRE. My friend and mentor was speaking to me about the fact that...

The Cost Of Greatness | 20s Crisis

By: Kgabo Chuene I watched the Steve Jobs movie lately and it’s a story I’ve heard about before, quotes I’ve heard and read before, but this experience was rather different.

Musa Mthombeni | An Inspiration To South African Youth

By: Kgabo Chuene The other day my friend and I were discussing the idea that we feel there aren’t enough hours in a day for all that we’d like to do. I’m pretty sure we all feel this way at some point; it makes you wonder how some people do it. What is the key to maximising ones time? Lol! That sounds like a self help book title. Truth is there really are people who use time so efficiently in their lives it almost looks like they’re a...
