The cost of starting leave alone running a business in KE is ridiculously expensive for a young person who's never had a job and is thinking about running a business before getting that job.

But hawawezi tushinda ujinga na watushinde akili pia.

Check out these hacks.

Do whatever you gat to do to put food on your table. Depression doesn't like a happy heart. It also is allergic to a busy mind.

It doesn't have to be a huge business, it can be as simple as buying and delivering groceries for people in your estate, or cleaning, or cooking.
To have a single permit for a cleaning business in Meru for example is KES 15,000. To register the business on ECitizen is KES 1000, and with the rise in use of technology and increase in Social media users, you can do the below to start a successful business with minimum costs.
1. Register your business on ECitizen no matter how small you think it is.
2. Create a Logo and a business Page SM
3. Print at least 6 t-shirts with the name of your hustle (6 is the minimum printing guys can do)
4. Ensure you have at least something branded (T-shirt, receipts).
Every time you are transacting.

Branding goes a long way. People will take you seriously.

You might not have much when you are starting, but please, register and Brand once that money starts coming.

That is how you land tenders as well.
There are also start up funders Online, they fund an already existing registered business trynna break even.

I will do a thread on that by end of week.

I wish you the best.

Let's do this. 💪💪💪💪

There's a dam located in Tigoni area huko kwetu.

A girl I grew up with committed suicide there Jana. She drowned her 2 kids, a 7 YO and a 1 YO.

The girl and the 1 YO baby have been recovered.

One of my friends called me crying, told me the girl was kicked out on Sunday....
By her husband, so she went back home.

Her birthday mother told her she can't stay there so Jana she gave her fare to go "speak" with her husband.

She went straight to the dam.

Imagine being so broken and feeling so unwanted that you take your life and your kids. 😭😭😭😭😭
My heart is bleeding. Bleeding for her, and the kids who didn't deserve death.

The friend who called me said something that stuck with me.

"Njeri, a Mother's love is everything, we won't judge that she killed her babies, she might have felt leaving them in this cruel world..

Dear young couples who want to get married, have kids and live happily ever after...

Enjoy each others company as much as possible.

Do not rush to have kids.

They change everything!!!

The moment a baby comes, kuna the first three months hakuna kulala, most women are so tired they won't give you the attention you crave.

After three months you think life will go back to normal.

Mnalalisha ka Jayden, babake akifika pa kuingia unakaskia "Ingeeeeeeee"
Unaamka unakanyonyesha... Babake ameboeka, by the time unarudi bed amelala😭😭
It goes on till Ako karibu mwaka.

Sex Na quality time inakuwa ya kutafutiliwa.

Mnakuwa frustrated.

You'd think it gets better with time cos kids learn how to sleep longer as they grow right?Wrong!

Everybody has or will go through that depressing season where nothing is working... No job, no money, bad luck, bills, etc.
You ask for help but no one is able to, somehow, it totally pours... Those you think will help are not there.
Short thread.
So you reach out and all you get is motivational quotes "you will make it, do not worry" but deep down the frustration becomes bigger. You want solutions, you want money, you want a job, someone to take care of what it eating you.
That season is so brutal cos what you want will not be given to you, why, because as much as it is unfair, you have it within you to get out of that situation. It is the most important season of your life, when you overcome it, you look back and are thankful.

2018 was the worst yet the most enlightening year of my life. On March 29, I lost my job. This was then followed by a series of "bad luck" accompanied by a pity party that lasted for about 7 months before I decided to do something about it.
This thread is dedicated to
1. Those that have lost jobs, are still looking and still nothing is happening
2. Those that have graduated college and no job is in sight
3. Those that have something they love doing but are not monetizing their gift/talent.
An opportunity presented itself in 2018 October in Meru and since the last 7 months were terrible, I was so ready to just leave Kiambi and start a fresh! Have you ever been so broke that even 10 bob is a problem? I got from 100 to 0 pretty quick. Employment is scam😩
