After publishing the Kenya’s Middle Class nightmare article I received lots of emails from people across the world telling me how they were in a similar situation. A good number asked me to write about how one can avoid living an average life. As a result, I went out to meet Tom Kirkwood at Africa Insight Ltd headquarters along State House road, Nairobi seeking to learn how one can pursue their passion and be successful. Following is what he had to say
Who is Tom kirkwood?
Tom is a person who for the longest time was a wannabe entrepreneur, stuck in a multinational where intrapreneurs were not encouraged to bring new ideas or new business possibilities to the company’s attention. A person who was too often recording life and not living it. That has all changed after quitting my well-paying job at Reuters and starting Africa Insight Ltd.
