HOW STRATHMORE CONSULTANTS GOT STARTED
“I was managing the social pages of a group I was singing in. I gained them organic followers which gain them attraction. That’s when I knew I wanted to assist people with growing their brands.”
ADVICE TO THOSE PURSUING THEIR DREAMS
“Don’t let intimidation stop you from doing what you’re passionate about.”
HIS GREATEST INFLUENCE
“My father is my greatest influence. Watching him have his own business caused me to inherit the entrepreneur spirit as well.”
BIGGEST CHALLENGE HE’S EVER HAD TO OVERCOME
“When I was in the first stages of creating my business, one of my first clients spoke “sweet nothings” . They promised work and exposure of my business. When it came down to payment for my work they didn’t follow the agreement. In addition, they fired me after 5 months of employment without an explanation. Self doubt started to settle in regarding the creation of my business. My family’s positivity encouraged me from the self doubt.”
ADVICE TO YOUNGER SELF
“Learn as much as you can from other entrepreneurs.”
