Hello, and welcome back to Smart Income Office.
Today on Personality Profile under the entrepreneurship segment, I go one on one with one of Ghana’s top earning bloggers: Akesse Moise Sanza.
I am your host Emmanuel Osei aka Karisma.
Let’s set the ball rolling:

Interview:

 

Karisma: Welcome Akesse Moise Sanza, to the entrepreneurship segment on Smart Income Office.
I am not going to start with the “who is Sanza” cliché…
Where did you grow up?
[divide]

 Sanza: Asuoyeboa/Apatrapa, Kumasi

[divide]

Karisma: Your surname sounds Eastern African, are you a full blooded Ghanaian?

 [divide]

 Sanza: I’m a Ghanaian and yet to hear my name in East Africa. It’s not a common Ghanaian name.

[divide]

 Karisma: Kindly tell us the Senior High School you attented plus where you had your tertiary education…

 

[divide]
Sanza: Kumasi Secondary Technical School. I was part of the 2003 Building Construction batch.

I’m yet to be in the tertiary

[divide]

 Karisma: Are you married?

 

[divide]

Sanza: Yes and blessed with two lovely kids. Boy and girl.

 

[divide]

Karisma: when did you start blogging?

 

[divide]

 

 Sanza: A bit over four years now but it has always been learning, learning, learning.

 

[divide]

Karisma: what challenges did you face when you started blogging?
[divide]

Sanza: I don’t call these challenges because I have always seen blogging as a learning process. So when anything comes up, I treat it as part of the blogging course and find a solution.

Karisma: what/who inspired you to start blogging?

 

[divide]

Sanza: I was inspired by the desire to create an online platform to advertise my travel and tourism services. By so doing, I fell in love with theChrishandlershow.com and even got a domain name sanzashow.com. I had the chance to also deal with YemmeYbaba and David Mawuli which gave me a clearer view of the blogosphere. I also worked with Bruno Denise who taught me some crazy skills. So I got here as result of collective ideas gathered from bloggers I met.

[divide]
Karisma: I know you get very huge traffic to your websites, though most are unknown. 
Sniff, sniff, I smell a lot of cash!
On a couple of occasions, I saw you post over $30,000 as weekly/monthly earnings from your blog/blogs.

Permit me to ask, how much do you make a month from blogging as a whole? Just give me an average.

 

[divide]


Sanza: I have maintained a weekly average of $30,000 since August. I’m not the type who hide issues relating to finances. I always want people to know that it’s possible. So I try to go the extra mile for people to know that I’m really earning what I put out there.

Karisma: Are your blogs solely managed by you?

[divide]

Sanza: no.  Other bloggers do help.

 

[divide]
Karisma: If no, how many editors/employers do you have?

[divide]

Continue reading…

Sanza: Two editors, and currently have just one person doing the publishing. I used to have seven people  working on my blogs but they are currently managing their own.

 

[divide]

Karisma: Do you pay them monthly and how much?

 

[divide]

Sanza: publisher is paid monthly while editors are paid according to the volume of task they are able to accomplish.

[divide]
Karisma: Aside blogging, what else do you do for a living?

Any other business or investment?

Karisma: You are one of my role models in blogging ‘cashwise’, hehe, despite the fact that I know not the blogs that generate you the money. I have tried time and again to trick you to reveal your blogs but to no avail. You are very low-keyed when it comes to discussions concerning your blogs.
All I know about is your travel blog, jetsanza.com.
Speaking of which, I also follow your globe-trotting adventures a lot.

Back to role models, do you have role models both in blogging and in life in general?

 

[divide]

Sanza: haha thanks for having me as your cash role model.  People lie about their success stories and as such I don’t look up to anyone. I don’t listen to motivational speakers as  well. These guys talk about things that they themselves have not implemented. Millionaires would leave out that secret. No one became a millionaire by listening to a millionaire.

Karisma: Speaking of globe-trotting, apart from Singapore, UAE, China, Italy, South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya, Germany, Sri Lanka, UK, Indonesia, France, Maldives, India, Egypt, which other countries have you traveled to?

 

[divide]

Sanza: hmmm where else? Togo, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Uganda, Zambia, the Netherlands, I’ll update your when I remember any.

[divide]

Karisma: which country did you first ever travel to?

[divide]
 

Sanza: Togo. UK is my first outside the continent.

 

[divide]
Karisma: I am aware you are a professing and a staunch Christian.
Do you go on evangelism too during your expeditions?
[divide]

Sanza: Where laws allowed, I visit Christian communities in the rural areas and also help spread the word.

[divide]
Karisma: Is it wrong to listen to secular music as a Christian?

Do you listen to it?

 

[divide]

Sanza: Not wrong but you have to be selective with your choice of songs. I take great inspiration from hip hop. Akon, Ace Hood and Obrafour do motivate me a lot. Songs like “LIVE YOUR LIFE” , “COAT OF MANY COLORS” and few others really inspire me.

Karisma: what do you consider as your super power?

Sanza: Knowledge

Karisma: what is your weirdest fear?

 

[divide]

Sanza: Thallasophobia. Fear of sea. Though I have tried some watersports with words of assurances from my instructors. I recently wanted to have a feel of how one drowns. My instructor agreed to rescue me after 5 seconds. It wasn’t easy and I have vowed not to go near any water body again.

[divide]
Karisma: Fufu or Jollof?
[divide]

Sanza: Jollof

 

[divide]

Karisma: Samsung or iPhone?

Sanza: iPhone

Karisma: what is your perception about bloggers in Ghana?

 

[divide]

Sanza: Most of us want to get rich overnight without mastering the act. One buys domain name today and expects to make money the next day. I don’t want to say most of us are not creative but we don’t want to be creative. We always look at the money-making blogs and copy their content. It’s easier to succeed if you stand out. I always try to do something unique.

 

[divide]

Karisma: Any word to your fans, followers, aspiring bloggers,  readers of this interview…..?

[divide]
Sanza: I’ll urge everyone to stay focused. Once you lose sight of your dreams, your eyes would be set on other things and your dreams can’t materialise.
