Success secrets from four young Kenyan Business Leaders

We are all curious as to what it is that sets young, successful individuals apart from the rest. Could it be their early-childhood development? Maybe it’s the schools they’ve attended? Could it be their early-established networks or perhaps it’s their result-driven educational career. That is what we intend to reveal in this article by sharing what a typical day in the life of a young, rising career leader is like.

Listed below are the typical days of Daniel Njuguna (Operational Excellence Lead at East African Breweries), Emily Thaara Njuki (Founder of Smart Solutions Africa), Wilson Obwatinya, (Operations Manager at Real People) and Jeremiah Mutisya, (CEO at Basecamp Explorer Kenya).

Daniel:

  • Day at work starts: At 7:00am every morning.
  • Spends first hours of the day doing: Planning. He claims that planning is of the essence because it determines how successful he will be in completing my tasks.
  • Day at work ends: between 6:00pm and 9:00pm
  • After working hours: Working out and spending an hour on the football field.

Emily:

  • Day starts: At 5:00am – At this hour she checks emails and the previous day’s reports.
  • Spends first hours of the day doing: She mentioned attending meetings with her department staff, investors, the county cabinet, as well as mentoring youths and even launching sports activities.
  • Day at work ends: Whenever it ends. Everyday ends a little differently.

Wilson:

  • Day at work starts: He wakes up at 4:30am and aims to be at work by 5:30.
  • Spends first hours of the day doing: Reading emails and analyzing the business of the day. He claims that doing this gives him an upper hand in handling his team, as he will accumulate the knowledge and understanding of what is happening.
  • Day at work ends: At a different time everyday, there is no telling. Sometimes it’s as early as 2pm and sometimes it’s as late as 2am.
  • After working hours: The time he has left, he spends with his family and friends.

Jeremiah:

  • Day at work starts: At 7:30am sharp, every morning.
  • Spends first hours of the day doing: Reads the latest news and business developments, as well as respond to email and do planning for the day.
  • Day at work ends: At 6:00pm, supposedly, but it never really ends at 6.
  • After working hours: Spends time planning for the following day or catching up with family, clients and/or staff.

The common traits that these individuals have is perseverance, hard-work and discipline. As you can tell from their daily routines, those are the key aspects if you want to create and maintain a long, successful career in whichever field you desire.
