Overcome the Barriers; Get Up and Make A Difference

Having been raised in a humble family, I learnt to operate in an environment with boundaries and restrictions. In fact there is a time when I recall very well when I had a serious conflict with my parents about how I should cut my hair style. In my mind I was very genuine thinking that I needed not to consult them if I am going to the saloon and what hair style I should cut.

I did not enjoy my teenage age because I had all sorts of regulations, rules and policies and I was always reminded that if I go contrary to them, I would face the wrath of Kiboko (Strokes of the cane).

Having grown up in such an environment my mind developed with a one directional thinking of receiving instructions and working with in a restricted framework. It took me almost a decade to break the culture that was built along the growth path. I know of many people that are battling with a decision to start or expand a business. You are not alone and it`s not your own making. I know you have a lot of fears and reservations and many people have
assured you that you will not make it.

Your family might have threatened to isolate you if you make that decision. Do not blame them; they can not imagine that you can make. They have seen you develop from a tiny boy/girl to a big person now. They are still locked up in the past. They feel safer with the status quo Get up, seek information, make that appointment, buy that input, till that land, plant that crop, expand that garden, buy that equipment, elect that farm structure and make a difference. It is a shame that in East Africa we import produce from Pakistan and the USA! Can you imagine!!!!!!!
