American Dream; Is this what it is?

American Dream; Is this what it is?

This post is special for many reasons and I hope it inspires you to shape the world to your desires. Read on...

In his insightful book "Outliers," Malcolm Gladwell emphasizes the pivotal role of hard work, dedication, and persistence in achieving success.

Hailing from Kenya, a land rich in culture and tradition, I carry with me the spirit of resilience and perseverance that defines the Kenyan people.

My journey to where I am today, is a testament to the values of hard work, determination, and a relentless pursuit of excellence that my parents instilled in me from a young age.

I write this post today, excited as NoliQ is one of twelve semifinalists in the BevNet competition; a competition presented by CocaCola, where new beverage entrepreneurs present their business strategies and products to a panel of judges gaining exposure, receiving feedback, and securing partnerships or investments. 

As, I navigate the path towards achieving my goals,  I must recognize the significance of my alcohol-free lifestyle that led me to this opportunity.

I made a decision to stop drinking alcohol about two years ago, during a restless phase in my life, where I was looking for purpose. 

By choosing a lifestyle free from alcohol and embracing healthier alternatives, I empower myself to stay focused, motivated, and committed to realizing my purpose. This led me to start NoliQ by Wanyinz, a resource hub for everything alcohol-free, with the hopes that we can empower others so they too can enjoy the benefits of a life unencumbered by alcohol. 

In many ways, my story embodies the essence of the American dream - the opportunity to pursue my passions, overcome challenges, and carve out a path to success through hard work and dedication.

By blending the values of my Kenyan heritage with the opportunities afforded by the American dream, I am able to chart a course towards a brighter future filled with promise and possibility.

So, as I continue on this journey of growth and self-discovery, I am reminded of the profound impact of hard work, sobriety, and the values that have shaped me into the person I am today.

Here's to embracing our heritage, pursuing our dreams, and living a life fueled by passion, purpose, and unwavering determination.

With gratitude and determination,
