The higher the risk the higher the return, the business adage goes. Risk is an intangible measure in business, entrepreneurs and business owners are familiar to. Risk is also a profit and loss metric or indicator in business and so that saying goes de nova ‘lose some, win some’. Big tech gurus the likes of Mark Zucks, Jeffrey Bezos, Elon Musk, the Twitter dude his name I can’t recall oh now I remember Jack Dorsey and posthumously Steve Jobs to mention but a few all took the greater risk to invest time, hardwork & cash to create what literally controls…


2020 January 1st, hangovers everywhere, confetti littered streets, fireworks stenched ambience, new dreams scribbled, 2019 regrets amended. It’s a new year, the beginning of a new decade, a lot to happen and as a growth tracker, economists trumpet a a global growth at 2,1% CAGR.

Alas, Donald Trump the logorrhea- beleaguered President of the United States, sex offender, an impeachment survivor and the only global problem thus far is still the most powerful man in the World. Concerning, but the count down for his presidency is nigh. The MAGAers are ramping up support for the Trump base intendem with white…

The World today is witnessing the fight for justice for George Floyd, social justice and a unified global war against SYSTEMIC RACISM! The wrinkles of racism are long overdue 52 years since the civil rights movement yet still police brutality, the unjust racial killing of black people, Islamophobia, homophobia and xenophobia all driven by systemic racism continue to thrive. This is not right!!!

The unjust killing of George Floyd has sparked a global movement every corner of this World , London , South America , and Europe and many other states joining the cause to end contemporary systemic racism. The…


My heart bleeds and eyes are soaked this week reading online tabloids and social media feeds about the unjust killing of a black man George Floyd. Killed by a white policeman , with his full knee on George Floyd neck, his body pinned in full incarceration by the other two policemen, while chained in handcuffs. George Floyd was lynched to death by the very system that swore the oath to protect him, the police working under the federal government of the United States. George Floyd was killed by four policemen for suspected forgery of a $20 bill. Rest in Power…

Who’s actually winning the climate fight in 2020?

Year 2020 was ululated as a beginning of the new era, with projected global economic growth at marginal 2.5% according to the World Bank. On the other-hand, climate activists the inspiring likes of Greta Thunberg and her legion of ardent climate supporters were taking a full-throttle fight against the ‘business as usual’ growth economics to save the global environment. …


Let’s start from the First Law of Ecology which posits,

‘Everything is Connected to Everything Else.’

The staggering global alarm, panic and mortality associated to the recent Corona pandemic outbreak leaves much to be desired. Yes the writing is on the wall that currently the global system response to the 2019 novel corona virus (COVID-19) alias the disease that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) has opened a can of worms. Generally speaking with COVID-19, the world has been caught napping , politicians guilty as charged for politicking especially on climate change and businesses negligent to prioritize people and planet…

As the world commemorates the International Women’s Day, the gender gap for women’s leadership, social empowerment, choice and equal access to the economic cake (equal work, equal pay) still remains at large and orchestrated by the men.

I have a great passion for sustainability, during my master’s study program in sustainability, I took an extra course in Intersectionality — Critical Perspective on Inequality and Power. During this study, I learned that inequality in whatever form is influenced by many intersections such as gender, ethnicity, race, sexuality, age, class, and it’s not driven by a single axis. The way these axes…

Life cycle thinking is a driver and pathway to sustainability as a business practice vis-à-vis products portfolio . Life cycle thinking is analyzed from the Beginning of Life (BOL) , Middle of Life (MOL) and End of Life (EOL). Most folks enjoy the benefits of the Middle of Life (MOL) of a product which is highly service oriented (usability), many actually have no thinking about the Beginning of Life (BOL) of a product which is largely on massive resource usage (tragedy of the commons) and End of Life ( eg ocean plastics etc). Plastics yes that plastic water bottle you…
