A Bit About Me

Hi and thanks for stopping by to learn more about me; (Nancy Gathecha) a Kenyan, born and raised in Africa, and currently based in Germany. When I was young, I wanted to be an air hostess, a nurse or fashion designer. I studied design, moved to Europe and worked in the fashion industry as a sales rep. I left employment following a back injury and after recovering followed my passion for reading and opened a physical bookshop in Bonn, Germany. A book lovers' heaven is owning a bookshop - for more than five years I was one of my best customers.


But then e-commerce and Amazon became competitors I couldn't keep up with. Armed with an "If you can't beat them join them" attitude, I wrote and published my first book, closed the bookshop and ventured into the online space in 2007 when the recession hit. Later I started another business and opened a fashion store in Kenya. It failed after three years so I reinvented myself again. I became a certified coach and also worked as a freelancer in the social studies and market research field. Since 2007 I've been building my business online as it continues to evolve to date.
