Let’s talk a little kejamove

Guys…so, let’s talk a little kejamove.

One of the things we all hate most when moving is how tedious it is to just get a quotation.

You either get someone on a phone call for almost an hour asking you whether your fridge is the small one or if your clothes fit into a 6 foot by 10 inch box or whatever.

That, or, they send you to a clunky website that asks you to fill a million forms, and still that doesn’t even get you closer to a quotation: you still have to wait for a phone call, which comes after 10 hours, if at all you get called back.

Can tech make this better?
I’ve always believed, we’ve always believed that tech is here, not to replace how we do things, but to make things easier, better, faster more efficient.

So long story short we are cutting the time it takes to get quotations from us, again, from about 4 minutes to less than 30 secs: no more tedious forms to fill, no need to speak to someone on phone.

How?
Head over to www.kejamove.com

Tell us where you are moving from and to, and no. of bedrooms and we’ll give you an instant quotation. No waiting for phone calls, no estimates, done!

 

The borrrring stuff
We’ve built this by using little bits of Artificial Intelligence coupled with the data we’ve collected over time, to predict a couple of things about your move, e.g the truck size and packaging material to bring based on where you live and no. of bedrooms.

We’ve arrived at this by using predicate logic like:

Fact: 1. An average 1 bedroom house takes up 10cbm in volume.

Hypothesis: 2. 1 bedrooms houses in kilimani are smaller than those in kitengela.

Algorithm: 3. Decrease quotations for 1 br moves from kilimani by a factor of x.

etc, etc, etc.

Always keeping the promise: the movers who keep time and break nothing.

Team Dynamics: The Visionary vs the Operator

Every team NEEDS a visionary and an operator.

And one thing I’ve had to realize, almost painfully, is that as you run a company, you can’t be both the visionary and operator/implementor.

How to stop worrying about EVERYTHING!

I used to worry myself silly over tiny tiny stuff. And i struggled with this for a very long time.

I would be worried over whether we would meet our targets so much that I didn’t even put in the actual work towards meeting them. Another time i’d be so worried about whether a relationship would work that I forgot to ACTUALLY make it work. Another time I got so worried about whether I would make rent, and completely forgot that I had already paid 3 months rent in advance. Ha!

Work related burnout. And how to face it.

You wake up as usual to go to work.
But you feel something is not right, you can’t tell what but something is just not right.

You are tired. You check the time you went to sleep yesternight: all normal, same time you sleep everyday, so it’s not sleep deprivation.

You attempt to get up, one foot off the bed, but the other just won’t follow.

You try to think of just

The emotions of a first time founder

I’ve always held startup entrepreneurs close to my heart.

And I always watched videos of them, explain their trade, the challenges, everything. I always Googled them, they were my mentors (the online way). They were my guys, I loved them, I dug their challenges, their joys, their ups, their downs. I was that silent co-founder, never contributing anything but always

Startup vs Big company mentality

I had a small session with myself yesterday. Remember how your principal used to “summon” you to the office? I summoned myself in such a way.

I wanted to understand why some things had changed.

Why I was not working late. Why I was not angry at myself for
