#RunAroundAfrica
[Kampala, Uganda. 11.19]
...
I dedicate(d) this run to you, my people, who are continuously trying to stay alive and peaceful, as you slay the zombies of challenges along your paths, while you, concurrently, try to be your own and your people's heroes.
You are an inspiration. You are loved.
If I can make it to and past all these finish lines, then you can, certainly, go further than I will ever get.
Don't you ever forget to wear a smile.
It helps - somewhat.

As we have been consumed with bettering several other aspects (have you visited our newly rebuilt websites - somethingugandan.com and ttpafrica.com ?), you might have noticed that we have, in the most recent times, not been sharing the photos we, Umoja Bridge, Something Ugandan, and Turn The Page Africa peg(ged) to their common #DeliveringSatisfaction hashtag, with deliver-ing (so that you can spend that useful time being more productive) and satisfy-ing (have you ever eaten at a restaurant, and spent the next few days thereafter reciting their menu?) being some of the (not necessarily values, or the mission or the vision but slices of the identity and/or) reasons that The Alex Twino Group (alextwino.com) exists.

However, this photo, of African books, (some of the many products and services we make available, accessible and affordable) heading to a destination in Mainz, Germany, and taken today, Thursday, November 16, 2017, (on the same day we we sent packages to or rather made several deliveries in Kampala, Nairobi, Pennsylvania, Sydney) means a whole lot to us.

It was in the intriguing conversation (by way of E-mail) that identified for us the same challenges (in Europe) that we had heard about from other clients in the U.S. of A, and in Australia, and, equally, highlighted the frustrations we endure on a daily basis in Kampala, Uganda.

It was the reader who will hog on these (he ended up taking four titles) who directed our attention to considering opportunities on his continent, while at the same time, as if the stars had chosen to align themselves, another client, in Paris, was emailing us on the very same

Well, decisions have been made already, so that #DeliveringSatisfaction can mean more than it already does - for many, both for the consumers, whom we zealously exert ourselves for ("this is a group of companies that exists to help people in the country, the region, and the world to live and work better") and for ourselves as well (our cardinal responsibility is to serve)

To take a step (towards global domination) at a time, we are continuously learning, preparing and working.
We, too, will tell our story - AND PROPERLY!

Kazi Iendelee! insha'Allah!

This, is a picture of books, taken within the parking lot of a Kampala elementary school. There, is where that part of a story ends.

However, it had began somewhere elsewhere, in a medium that was, for long, only considered to be meant for the - supposedly - overly serious connections; LinkedIn.

There, a gentleman, addressed to Nairobi, had, he said, "sought me out", while in the quest for books.
His interest was in Ugandan books, but a few messages, emails, and calls later, he had browsed through our - Turn The Page Africa's - catalogue, and, by the exercise of his own volition, settled for some.
Abyssinian Chronicles. Kintu. Kkoyi Kkoyi. Mixed And Brewed In Uganda.

"If you have not read this text (Abyssinian Chronicles), then you have not read."
He said, when a weekend - of pleasure - brought him to Kampala.

I was delighted to deliver his satisfaction.

In my previous life (as not so much other than a mere lawyer), I had never taken LinkedIn all that seriously, until we started finding it a wonderful way to spread messages (in following Gary Vayernerchuk's advise to find your client where they are, and my own long held belief that there is always someone out there who will be your future client, but you just have not found them yet) and to consistently grow our connections, connections which, one way or another, become (y)our friends (Conrad Kuzooka believes that the core of your clients are your friends).

A while ago, I did not take Instagram seriously either. But that was until, we served several clients in Kampala, Nairobi, Sydney, London off only one post.
[Solange (my phone) has a folder in which are close to a double number of apps which are meant for relaying messages and fulfilling follow ups.]

Now, we are at a point where every single post matters - in all positive definitions of the word.
More pictures, please.

To borrow from Bryson Tiller; "I guess all we had to do was to take this shit seriously."
