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.”

The Young Visionary
VISION is what many young people lack in today’s world and don’t wake up to each day.
Here are a few things that I have come to learn:
You cannot “get there” without knowing where you are going.
You cannot “work” without passion and expect to be happy.
You cannot compare yourself with others and expect to be content.
You cannot try to be like someone else and expect to be 100% like them.
You cannot be at peace if there is a war of insecurity happening inside you.
Work on what you’ve got on the inside and you’ll be amazed at how it beautifully manifests on the outside.
Why Have I Been Silent?
First, my apologies. I chose to explore the world of entrepreneurship through events and see where the road leads. It has been the case of crazy beautiful, but I am glad that I got the opportunity to start. I’ll be sharing some of the inspiring lessons I learn along the way so let’s keep in touch!
