I recently experienced a season of failure in business and so I have come to learn that failure is an ingredient of great success. My attitude towards this has helped me embrace it, learn from it and find ways to keep working on my ideas and dreams.
Today, I enjoyed an inspiring conversation with my house-help about the GES 2015. She told me that she’s been in business before and that she’s been saving up to rekindle her business back in the village so that her daughter can access secondary school education.
I promised to be on the lookout for opportunities that would benefit her and she encouraged me to keep working on my dreams and never give up.
So there we were, two 27-year-old Kenyan women from different backgrounds who’d failed in business yet still encouraging each other.
This brings to life Gena Showalte’s words, “Giving up is the only way to fail.”
