I feel so fortunate to have known Nyasha as she mentored from the startup of my social enterprise. She has challenged me and inspired me to dream big and to live my life with no limits, through her Kick Start Programme. She has the ability to ask the most critical and important questions, that helped me gain clarity and find solutions to my business goals. As a mentor she has demonstrated that we should never put limits on ourselves of find excuses not to do the things that are important to us.Yvonne Marimo
What Qualifies Me to Mentor You?
I started my social entrepreneurial journey with a £800 redundancy package and an abundant passion for children. That was 25 years ago. I now run a successful, independent fostering agency and have won and been a finalist of many business awards, varying from social enterprise of the year to businesswoman of the year. Along the way, I have made mistakes and learnt from them. I want to share my journey to make your first steps to a social enterprise a success.
