TODAY'S ENTREPRENEUR ADVICE
You will overcome obstacles....
"There are unique obstacles you will meet on your entrepreneurial journey as a woman - they will slow you down but believe it or not you will overcome them."
- Evylin Munyi is the co-founder of KOFAR Kenya, a company that supplies farmers, especially small-holder farmers, with Organic and Natural inputs to use on their farms so as to restore the soil back to health from overuse and abuse from conventional inputs. Evylin started doing research on Organic inputs and Organic Agriculture back in 2009-2010 and registered a company in 2011. She teamed up with local and international scientists and came up with the KOFAr soil repair package suitable for all soil types in Kenya and beyond. This changemaker has come up with a business concept that can change farming across Africa.

100 LIONESSES PROJECT
There is something life affirming about positive people who have the capacity to believe that if you can visualise it, you can make it happen. The inspirational US entrepreneur and best selling author of Million Dollar Women, Julia Pimsleur, has a really interesting take on this subject. In her latest blog, whilst celebrating Thanksgiving with her readers, she suggests that as an alternative take on the annual celebrations, entrepreneurs should perhaps try being grateful for things they haven’t gotten yet - interesting concept! She is premising this suggestion based on the Law of Attraction, knowing that you get more of what you focus on, and the more specific you can be, the better. At a practical level, and to help the visualisation process, Julia suggests writing down the three things you would like to have happen before the end of 2017 and then be grateful for them. By writing these aspirations down, and talking about them as if they have already been achieved, it brings them closer and makes them seem more attainable in reality. Why not try it?
