Njanja Koby's Top 5 Tips When Starting Out In Business - ZUMI

4 months ago, 8 Mar 01:36

By: Lush Angela

Njanja Koby is a makeup artist who works alongside her husband Steve Koby, who is a makeup artist too. Together they’ve established themselves as the go-to makeup artists in Kenya, from weddings to photo shoots. Last Friday, we had the pleasure of hosting Njanja in Zumi offices as she shared with us the inside scoop of her and Steve’s new business venture, N&K lashes of which were available to buy through the Zumi e-commerce platform. Njanja gave me an Instastory live tutorial on how to put the lashes on, and off screen, I got the chance to briefly interview her about their experience in building a Lash business in Kenya. Njanja shared her top five advice tips on what she believes those at the very early stages regardless of whether the business is service based or product based, should learn to implement and beware of. Here are the five business advise tips Njanja shared: Start where you are with the money that you have, don’t prolong it saying that you’re waiting for the money to check in. Also, the other problem that comes with waiting longer is the voices of doubt sieve into your worries of lack of success and that will end up crippling you as you begin. If you have a business partner let them be the only one you share your ideas with and if your starting the business alone keep your ideas to yourself. Also, learn to pray about your idea and ask God for the strength and guidance. When you share too soon you might find yourself being controlled by other peoples fears of you embarking on your business venture. Don’t follow the movement and end up building a business that is not solely what you are about and nor is it what you are passionate about because when it fails, you will be filled with regret that you weren’t true to yourself. Instead, do what you love because ultimately that’s what will give you the drive to carry on and the will to dust yourself off and try it all again even after failing. When your idea is finally a reality and others know about it, make sure you market your product or service as much as possible. Use all the platforms available to you to make a big deal about your product, because the more people know the quicker you grow. Ride with people who pull you up not drag you down. This will be really relevant when your product is out in the market or you have officially begun providing customers with your service. These are great tips shared by Njanja and I believe if enforced will help make the adventure of business building more enjoyable.
