One afternoon in September 2017, two friends were having a phone conversation to touch base and get accountability for their business goals.
They had been holding each other accountable for the better part of that year. This day however, something changed for both of them. And it changed the course of their lives and businesses...forever.
Just when Lillian Macharia and Caroline Gikonyo were about to conclude their phone call, Lillian reminded Caroline about a business they and 4 other trainers had wanted to start way back in 2012.
She then asked the ONE QUESTION that changed the direction of their lives. She asked, "What if we had gone ahead with this? Where would we be today?" After some reflection, the discussion changed to why not do it now...what is stopping us?
Within an hour, this moved from a business idea into a business. First, they identified what they could do together as they were both coaches. Then, they explored the skills and experiences they were lacking. Finally, they identified two coaches whom they could invite to join them.
Within three days, the other 2 coaches had been invited and they both said YES! (it was a loud YES all through). Unfortunately, due to time constraints and family commitments, one of the partners had to opt out during the startup phase.
A month and 4 teleconference meetings later, Biashara 360 was born with 3 founders: Lillian Macharia, Caroline Gikonyo and Veronica Waithaka.
The rest, as they say, is history.
