First and foremost, welcome to all the new subscribers, I hope you enjoy your time here. I’ve just seen the shift in subscribers and I am wowed.
Sorry for the silence. I have been bugged out with never-ending flu-cold for the past couple weeks, but I am on the mend now. I’m sorry I have not been able to hold some appointments with a few of you, however, I am back. As some of you may be aware, right at the end of last year, I found out I was nominated for a GAB award at the Hilton Canary Wharf in London, I am happy to announce that I won the Business category. Something even more amazing happened not long after the GAB awards news, I found out I was nominated and shortlisted a finalist as one of the Most Influential Young Upcoming Female Africans in Business at the renown African Youth Awards. I was humbled to even be considered for such a prestigious award alongside, some of those amazing girls! Wow, what an honour.
So, why am I sharing all this? Well, because when I started my entrepreneurial journey, It wasn’t easy at all (still isn’t at times, although it does get easier). In the eyes of the world, I was probably considered a failure. There were days entrepreneurship felt miserably and I would almost start second guessing myself. The good news however is, I learned a lot from the mistakes I made and did not give up (I had no choice but to persevere, due to my health, lol)
Fast-forward a few years to 2018-19, I have sat in boardrooms with amazing people, written a book, been nominated for all these amazing awards and spoken at events that I sometimes have to pinch myself. I was even featured on Texas based Author and Publisher Extraordinaire, Darren Palmer. So, what am I saying? People often ask,
“Micah, how did you figure all this entrepreneurial things out?”
