Vincent Nyoike is some kind of a difficult person to grasp. He goes by two definitions: Some kind of a human-dolphin that:
- Can't swim, but has a lot of care for others.
- Separates itself from anything that doesn't give him peace.
Some say I'm quiet and serious while others wish I had a pause button in my mouth. I am an interesting person, and maybe funny in my own way. Or rather, I am the only one who gets humor in my own jokes. Either way, I am one perfect person to be your favorite hello.
I was born and raised in Murang'a County. I have had the privilege to travel a lot and live in different parts of the country. I attended different schools due to unavoidable circumstances, giving me a chance to learn and interact with people from different culture and background.
I'm not a pundit, but I love knowledge. Reading for fun is interesting. I graduated from the University of Eldoret with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Applied Statistics with Computing in 2018. I have also done Certified Public Accountants (CPA) up to Part 2.
Currently, I am pursing Masters of Science (MSc) in Finance at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) while working on a new and exciting web portal.
I am also concentrating on personal development and self-taught skills, especially in Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
Work and Passion
I am an accountant by profession and also a business consultant. I run a virtual business consultancy firm in Kenya. For business consultancy, contact me. Besides accountancy and business consultancy, I am also a webmaster, not a profession, but a passion. I love reading, writing and web optimization. I find research and SEO exciting. I always want to scribble down ideas and share my thoughts.
I have had the privilege to work with finance organizations around the world. I have contributed to basicincome.org, to advocate for the introduction of basic income in African countries. I have also written for the Standard Media Group.
I love blogging. It is something that resonates from within. I think of it even when I'm not working. I'm constantly thinking of ways to improve my blogs. When something is really important, you constantly think of it even when you are not working.
I also like taking walks so that I can have enough time to think and plan. I can stop along the way and stare at this or that. It could be anything; a building, a garage. I also like traveling, for fun. Generally, I like to pay attention to anything that sparks my inner ignition.
I have several projects I am working on, online and offline. Besides Nexin Startups, I am working on a new project; Freelancer Ideas, a web portal that will impart readers with ideas on how to make money online.
I started it in October 2020, before leaving it to work on other projects. I'm also working on other web portals and once they are up and running, I will update this page.
Successes and Failures
There have been tons of failures along the way; that's for sure. They have been worth it though. I get to learn a lot from failures and know what works and what doesn't. But honestly, failure is painful. It's however inevitable especially when you are undertaking a challenging project.
One thing I have learned is that; to start an exigent project, you need to have high pain tolerance and learn how to deal with failure. For instance, when starting the Nexin Startups project, I made mistakes and had multiple failures that cost me lots of time and cash.
I learned how to quickly identify those errors and rectify them within the shortest time possible. Nevertheless, this web portal; Nexin Startups is one of the most successful projects I have had after many failures.
I'm a highly motivated person by the will and wish to succeed. I love challenges and finding solutions to problems. My biggest motivation is my love for what I do. If you like what you do, it becomes much easier to find solutions to challenges that come along your way.
There is a quote I love by Elon Musk; "If something is important enough, then you do it even if the compared risk is higher." Doing what I love most gives me a reason to wake up every morning.
How I Consider Myself
I'm self-driven, ambitious, smart, and resilient. Not to forget, I am an introvert. It is because I learned the secret of talking less and listening more.
Nevertheless, I always want to make things happen, and not wait for them to happen. I also like to keep my space and work manageable.
