Cohort 2 Excursion hike at Ngong Hills
Ngong Hills Resilience challenge
Embarking on a journey to become an entrepreneur is akin to climbing a mountain. It’s a challenging and exhilarating path filled with unpredictable ups and downs. To provide a hands-on experience for budding entrepreneurs, AESU cohort 2 students ventured on a resilience hike to Ngong Hills.
This extraordinary expedition not only showcased the breathtaking beauty of the landscape but also unveiled invaluable lessons in resilience, perseverance, and adaptability required to conquer the entrepreneurial peaks. Let’s dive into the remarkable journey and the lessons we learned along the way.
Embrace the Climb: As we began our ascent up Ngong Hills, the initial slope tested our determination. Similarly, in entrepreneurship, starting a business demands courage and a willingness to step out of our comfort zones. We learned that embracing the climb, with all its uncertainties, is crucial to achieve success. Just as the first few steps require extra effort, the initial stages of a business venture may seem arduous, but persistence pays off.
Adaptability and Flexibility: As we trekked through diverse terrains, our team had to adapt to changing conditions. The same applies to entrepreneurship. Market dynamics, customer preferences, and technological advancements are ever-evolving. Being adaptable and flexible allows entrepreneurs to adjust their strategies, pivot when necessary, and seize opportunities amidst uncertainties.
Teamwork and Collaboration: The hike was a perfect opportunity to realize the importance of teamwork. Each member of our group played a crucial role in supporting one another. In entrepreneurship, building a strong team is vital for success. Collaborating with like-minded individuals who complement your skills and share your passion helps overcome challenges and maximize the potential for growth.
