What compelled me to create a personal growth tips website?
First things first....
My friends have been asking me why I do not have an ‘about me’ page on my website. I tell them that it is because this website isn't about me; it’s about all of you great personal growth seekers out there.
But maybe that’s just the personal development correct (PDC) answer. The real truth is that I am a little uncomfortable drawing attention to myself. But let’s start with the basics;
I’ll first tell you that my name is Kay...
...and that actually my real name is Kageni, but many of my associates (and strangers) seem completely unable to pronounce such an exotic name. So, I go by Kay
...and that Kageni is a Kenyan name which, in the Meru tribal language, means "little visitor"
...and that I am in my mid-thirties
...madly in love with the man of my dreams
...and that I graduated from college with a Marketing major
...and that I've always loved working for myself, creating (and sometimes destroying) business ventures
...and that I am a mom of a smart, beautiful, adoring and unbelievably grounded 13 year old girl.
I'll tell you now what...
I'd rather talk about how this personal growth tips website relates to you and your life!
My adventures on planet earth as little visitor has taken me through life's struggles no less heart-breaking than many peoples'. "We are more alike than we are different", is a Truth I have come to revere.
A little over 15 years ago, at the confused-crazy-anything-goes age of 24, an older friend offered to let me borrow a book she'd been reading. She thought I'd "like it". And I did!
But I did not just like the book. I absolutely devoured it! I was shocked by all of the great information and fascinating concepts contained in that book.
Really, who has the nerve to tell a 24 year old that you have the personal power to create the life that you want? Well, Anthony Robbins' Unlimited Power did just that for me.
What it also did however was create a curiosity, a passion, a love and an inner drive so deep and so rooted in my soul that I KNOW that personal development is ultimately intertwined with my destiny.
Eventually, it dawned on me that what you take in, you must share. You MUST it give away. Knowledge is magnified when shared and passed on.
I have known for the last 5 years that I wanted to create a website where I could present personal growth tips and share the resources for learning that I have found along the way.
I wanted some way to do for others what my friend Lucy did for me at the ripe old age of 24; to inspire, to build people’s belief in themselves, to teach and to share the tools that I’ve used to build an incredible life.
My only problem was that I had no clue how one goes about building a website to share information with the rest of the world. My marketing degree didn't seem to come to my rescue on this one either. 'How to build a great website page' just wasn’t in my curriculum at the University.
But as the saying goes, "when the student is ready, the teacher appears". Through another of my friends, I found out that any person who has the desire, if they are capable of following instructions and clicking a mouse, can actually build a website. Any person!
My friend even said you could build an income that kept growing each month, whether you worked or not. At first it sounded a bit MLM'ish.
But when she shared what she was making and how, I asked her to explain how she was doing it.
And that is what led to me finally building my own great personal growth tips website.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed building it. Check back often as I am adding new articles all the time.
With immense gratitude for you and your time here,
p.s Often people ask me how I was able to build this personal growth tips website with no web design or programming knowledge. I tell them that Site Build It came to my rescue.
If you're like me, and have no clue how a website should be built, yet you havea burning desire to communicate your ideas to the world, look no further than SBI.
