What 3 successful women say about giving up

Sometimes giving up on a business or an idea seems to be the best option in an entrepreneur’s life. Some say your worst days come before success. What if the days turn in toe weeks and months. What if they turn to years with no great success?

Most successful entrepreneurs have been faced with the same challenges. Giving up or holding on. Three successful women  have their say on giving up.

Tabitha  Karanja is an entrepreneur and industrialist. She is the founder and the Chief Executive Officer of Keroche Breweries.


Giving up was not part of my vocabulary. The way my challenges came, you could never try to think of giving up because if I ever gave up it meant that I could have hurt a generation, especially my children and anyone trying to come up in business. Then people would have later said… you remember that woman who started a beer business and closed down. BBC

imagesEvery time I have wanted to quit – and there have been a few times– it’s at that point that I was at the very verge of greatness… that moment after is when it’s your next leap of success. It’s really interesting. What I would say to people starting their businesses now is hang in there. The journey of an entrepreneur is never straight. There are… potholes on the way but we have to stay in there for the long haul HowWeMadeIt
