..young man experiencing my youth. The money just vanished by the time I was turning 26,” he said.

He added:

“To start Resolution Health, I needed Sh40 million. I didn’t have the money. All I had was a great concept.

I set out looking for capital and met some gentlemen who were willing to invest in my idea.

“Of course they demanded to have a lot of control over the business but I put my foot down and made it very clear the extent to which they could influence the business.”

“I am a thrift spender. I only use money on my basic needs. I look for practicality instead of luxury.

He, however, doesn’t spoil his kids and wants them to work hard to get the good things in life.

“I want my kids to learn money discipline. I am a father of three; two girls and a boy. I teach them to work hard to get the good things in life.

They may receive pocket money but they know that to get the iPhone they will have to figure it out.”
