One of the most fascinating things about growing up, is how much you learn about yourself. As much as I hate to admit it, I have learned that I am generally a late bloomer. I dont 'catch on' to things as quickly as most. I tend to take a little longer to really 'fall' for something. However, when I do eventually catch the bug, it tends to stay with me for a very long time.

I have seen this in my buying decisions in cars, clothes and even technology. I still cannot get myself onto Facebook although I'm a big fan of Twitter and a recent customer of LinkedIn, for instance. I am amazed at the amount of interest and value add derived from my Twitter posts and as a result this has encouraged me to write this blog.

You know, there are times when 140 characters just wont do!

And I guess there is something incredibly therapeutic about writing. I think most writers, at least the good ones, write for themselves perhaps more than they write for their prospective readers. That resonates with me.

We will focus on all matters relating to business in particular in technology, media and telecommunications. We will discuss new developments in South Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and the world over and disect what these actually mean.

I have this convinction, that has taken over my life.

I truly believe we are living in times of drastic change. I believe that our generation is going to drive the most dramatic change the world hs ever seen. Think about how the Internet, a discovery in our lifetime, has changed the world. Think about cellular phone technology, a discovery in our lifetime, has changed the world. Think about social media, smartphones, tablets, Android vs. IOS, broadband, wireless connectivity, freedoms, the emergence of the East, the anticipation of Africa, the recent challenges of the West.

All these tell me one thing: This is the most exciting time to be alive...EVER!

Share this ride with me!



  1. I am looking forward to this Andile! The taster has me licking me lips. You know my thoughts on more inspirational leadership being shared so we have more Vuma from more people in this beautiful country of ours!

  2. As your no 1 fan, I don't think I even need to tell you just how awesome I think this blog idea is. Can't wait to read more... Love, Mrs S

  3. Mtungwa I am certainly sure that your blog will bring thoughts provoking like your twitter-page. And also simplifly issues related to your areas of interests - this should be very entertaining to me since we have most common business interests.

  4. Mr Andile Khumalo, I first got introduced to you by your profile in GQ, and more recently on Destiny Man (where it says that you are the most influential businessman on Twitter). As a student of life myself and your fan, I hope that this blog will educate me, stimulate my interest in business and more importantly inspire me and the rest of South Africa's youth.

    I will tell all the aspring Chartered Accountants that The VP of ABASA has a blog. They should follow it to draw inspiration, when they cannot formulate control objective in an auditing paper.

    Just subscribed and I look forward to thought provoking articles.
