What was the catalyst that made you decide to go into business?
I have always had a great passion for people, their equality and fairness.
I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and I had ideas that I knew would probably be very difficult for me to introduce and commission in the environment I was at the time.
What was holding you back from being an entrepreneur at the time?
The thing that held me back most was the fact that, everywhere I took my proposal for the business, I was told it was very good but that I couldn’t get any help as I needed 3 years track record of running the business which then made the business a nonstarter.
I went to the most renowned business start-ups and banks, but had my hopes shattered yet I had a dream within me that kept me searching and trying.
If you don't like the position, size or placement of the photos, grab, move, rotate or resize them until you do!
What was the best business advice you were given?
To keep trying and never give up!
What is the most exciting thing happening in your sector right now?
There is a greater recognition of the need to have someone to look up to by people from different walks of life.
This is exciting for me because I believe there is greatness inside of everyone and love to see people progress or work at their personal progress.
I am creating opportunities for a lot of people to be equipped and do well in life. A lot of people will now have a better platform to start from.
What are your customers demanding more from you at the moment and how are you and the business responding?
Most of my customers are demanding for more opportunities for meeting times, their seems to be a bold realisation that mentoring is a very significant key in the journey of success.
What social media tool are you using at the moment?
Currently using Twitter which helps to establish and expand connections with a wider network and helps me engage new clients.
I also use LinkedIn as it gives me the opportunity to connect with professionals.
I find Facebook a good way to engage with my personal network but at the same time helps my presence remain in the limelight which of course is helpful in remaining relevant.
What is your take on personal business failures?
I am a great believer of hard work, commitment, faithfulness and wise counsel will lead to success.
But when one finds themselves down, there is need to do a true evaluation of oneself, the failure and surrounding environment, put strategies in place and start running again.
Don’t stop, don’t give up! Ignore the critics!
What is difference that is making the difference for success in business at the moment?
The difference that is making the difference for success I believe is to establish your own niche market and run your own race.
Be unique and be steadfast. Don’t copy what others are doing!
Who are you following on Twitter and why?
John Maxwell Team and I will show you an example of their quote here and why following him is so dear to my heart!
Pouring my life into people is actually a lifetime delight for me.
What book would you recommend for entrepreneurs?
I strongly recommend the book that I read 3 times before getting the confidence to start a business, Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki for anyone looking to start a new business.
This book is an inspirational book for giving the confidence it takes to start a business and foundational guidance for the business world, including basic financial knowledge for a start-up.
Once you are set with that business idea, this book will guide you on the road to success.
What is your favourite quote?
There is greatness inside of you! Is my mantra.
I believe there is greatness inside of everyone and what I would love to see is more people who can help identify and develop this greatness.
My slogan is “Mulenga Chanda, Simply InsightFULL. I love to bring life to peoples dreams.”
What next for your business?
Looking forward to making a greater difference in people’s lives by creating more opportunities for mentoring and coaching.
My aim is to work to a level of having the ability to influence government policy. It may look farfetched but I know it will soon be a reality.
I am also an established author to 'Capture the Moment Volume 1 - Why Journal' and 'Capture the Moment Volume 2 - Writing Journal' and my recent book is A Mother’s Heart.
I am sure that many more books are on the way as I write easily.
What advice would you give yourself now that you have started?
Being humble always has amazing rewards and it’s best to appreciate the people around you but most especially, remember the ladders that got you to the top. Don’t throw them away!
Big one, ignore the critics!
And don’t stop developing yourself, seek the best advice and the best counsel available within your means.
