am an adult aged 27 years .Holder of a Diploma in Sales and marketing ,Diploma in Graphic design and Certificate in Computer applications.
i worked as a marketing executive for an insurance company for one year and later joined a workshop company(garage) as a marketing manager where i worked for two years and left to venture into business. while i worked with this companies is when i started my business and allocated my wife to manage the business as i continued to add more capital to it.
for the 1st 3 months the business was so challenging because i had to pay rent from my pocket .
currently am A National youth council official for Embakasi District.I tell you this is an elective position which i had to compete for. I contested for it in the year 2010 and managed to be selected with 200 votes. Before entering into the contest, the Government had indicated that it was a paid up position but later turned voluntary. Most of the contestants including me spent a lot of resources before they were elected but up to date we have never seen even a coin from the government . We encouraged ourselves and decided to move on with voluntary work of helping the youth within our region on drug abuse, importance of peace, enlighten them about the constitution and their rights and also encouraging them on the importance of becoming self reliant.
i like socializing with people and this helps me get a lot of clients.I also believe that a customer will only buy a satisfaction but not a thing.
I offer computer services,computer classes ,photography,computer maintenance and mpesa services in my shop. On top of this I am putting up an IT Centre( information technology centre) and Resource centre.
as at now we dont have an IT .centre or Resource centre within and most people struggle to get information.
i decided to offer the services because personally that is my profession and the place am locating it there are no such services.
