Curious to know more about me…
I was born and raised in Kenya by teachers turned entrepreneur parents. That’s where my entrepreneurial spirit came from. I started working when I was 14 while in boarding school. I sold bras and underwear to other girls with my pocket money (which wasn’t much).
I felt empowered to be independent and not have to ask my parents for pocket money for the entire school term.
Coming to AMERICA..
I moved to the US in the early 90s and worked in corporate while going to school. Yearning to be my own boss, I listened to my entrepreneurial gut and got into direct sales, where I grew a team and won a career car while helping other women build their businesses.
After the birth of my twin girls, I became a stay-at-home mom while attending school to finish my Bachelor’s degree. During the last semester, determined to finish, I set a non-negotiable goal and took 28 credits (9 classes)! That’s when I believed that the human mind is relentless and that you can achieve any goal you set with a “No Matter What” attitude. Always hungry for personal growth, I read books, listened to audiotapes, and attended conferences that would help me find my purpose and impact on the world.
I became a guest blogger for Allwomenstalk, a popular lifestyle womens’ blog where I wrote about topics that could be applied both in the workplace and in one’s personal life. They ranged from productivity, health & fitness to self-development. I also guest blogged on platforms like Agorapulse, a social media marketing tool where I shared what I had learned about online marketing tools, tips and strategies.
Noticing the world was going digital and putting my Organizational Leadership degree into good use, I went on to become an online marketing strategist, consulting for small businesses where I taught a marketing system that showed entrepreneurs how to build their businesses by finding who their ideal customer avatar was, growing an email list to sell more of their products, programs or services online.
Whether you’re just beginning your business or you’ve been at it for a while, but are overwhelmed or stuck, my goal is to share all I have learned along the way and hope to teach you the things I learned the hard way. I help you get unstuck and create a plan of action to move you from where you are, to the direction of where you want to be. You get refocused, execute the plan and accomplish your dreams.
