My Success Story

I became a Boost Fellowship participant in September 2016 after attending the Boost employability workshop. Before this I thought that money was the only measure of success, however everything changed after. Firstly I learnt how unbalanced my wheel of life was and I was taught how to change it. The Map4life book has helped me to create vision boards, plan, set goals and evaluate whatever I do.
From the employability workshop I learnt how to save starting from the smallest amount of money. I also learnt how to properly communicate with different people. From the savings I made, I managed to buy material to expand my poultry equipment project. I also managed to gather confidence to talk to poultry feed shops so that they can distribute my products and I have managed to get Novatek Animal Feed shops and Henn Chick to distribute my poultry slaughtering cones. Through the professional writing skills taught at the employability workshop, I managed to apply for the 2016 CBZ Young Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) and I was part of the 140 young entrepreneurs selected for Harare Metropolitan Province.
Boost Fellowship also gave a mentor who is helping me to achieve my objectives by linking me to people in agri-business. He is also helping me on confidence building.
At the Passport to Success Workshop, I managed to meet Bertha Ndlovu, who happened to be my PTS trainer. She pushed me to register my project so that I can turn it into a business. I am proud to say that I managed to save some money and registered the company as Passion Poultry (PBC). Through the employability whatsapp group, I also managed to attend a 3 day workshop on digital skills workshop by Techwomen called Thrive. From this workshop I managed to create my own website for the company and also how to use various social media platforms to market my products.
I feel successful as my project was selected by Boost as the best startup project and I was interviewed for a website. I have also just been accepted to be part of the Boost Fellowship Barclays Bank Incubation pod. Thank you Boost Fellowship

Evangelista Chekera.
You are your own self,you are the blueprint for success, your ideas,dreams and aspirations are the essence of your relevance to your generation and those that follow. Your birth signalled the arrival of a new player on the field,play the game to win it,everyone else is your competition. Quit living a life of wanting to please everyone, what people say about you are their own opinions they have nothing to do with you. Be the you that you want to be not the one that everyone wants you to be.

Live a life that speaks to your dream,your aspirations and your thoughts. Because sooner or later one by one our suns are going to set and when yours does will you be able to look back,reflect and with a smile and a nod of satisfaction say to yourself it was all worth it? Or you will be the one to regret? Regretting over missed opportunities, unutilized time and resources regretting having second guessed yourself? Its never to late to rewrite the story of your life,its not late to work hard day in day out and still be able to live and tell the tale of success.

Start right now focus,zoom in on your life,reflect and retrospect,remove all the negativity and work. Work on yourself, work on what you believe and as you do,you will realise success coming close,and closer within reach. How much do you want success?? Because that is what it is all about. Want it so bad,work so hard for it and that amount of effort that you put will sure determine how much of it you get. Second chances in life are very rare to comeby treat every opportunity like its the only one you have. Be phenomenal, be meaningful and be remembered or be forgotten. Make it memorable, write the story of your life in people's hearts. Let the story of your life be remembered and told by generations even long after you have gone by. Do it right and great this one chance that you have.

Cultivating Possibility Oriented Living BOOST is an acronym which stands for “Building Opportunities on Student Talent”. The BOOST Fellowship was founded in the year 2000 through the support of a dynamic team of enthusiasts from Zimbabwe, the UK and the USA.

Together, we observed that while most schools and universities across the world generally provide a wide-ranging academic education, many students find themselves inadequately prepared for the opportunities and the challenges of the world beyond the classroom.
