Oct 23, 2023

In this episode, I'm excited to welcome Wamite Muthara as our special guest, the founder of Career Safari, a platform that spotlights and celebrates the diverse career journeys of women who are challenging what it means to be successful. We dive into inspiring career stories and discuss the empowerment of women in various stages of their professional lives. Wamite takes us on a journey through her own career path, sharing how she transitioned from fundraising for nonprofits to the tech sector, and what inspired her to create Career Safari. Our conversation explores the hurdles women often face in their careers, from cultural expectations to gender discrimination. Plus, we introduce NetDo, a supportive community for aspiring entrepreneurs focused on holistic development and collaboration. Wamite of Career Safari encourages women to explore their passions, even while juggling motherhood. 


Fice golden nuggets to get started in finding your dream career according to Wamite:


  1. Get Curious About Your Interests: Begin by exploring what genuinely interests you. Identify activities or topics that you're passionate about. You can seek input from friends to pinpoint your strengths and inclinations.

  2. Invest Time Each Week: Dedicate a few hours each week to pursue your interests. For example, if you're passionate about baking, spend time trying out new recipes and hosting dinner parties to gather feedback. Start with just a couple of hours a month to get going.

  3. Outsource Your Weaknesses: Recognize your strengths and weaknesses. If you're starting a venture or project, don't try to do everything on your own. Outsource tasks that you're not skilled at or don't enjoy. Consider creative solutions, such as bartering skills or forming partnerships with people who compliment your abilities.

  4. Build Partnerships: Collaboration is key. Seek out like-minded individuals with skills that complement yours. Utilize platforms like social media and online communities to connect with potential partners. Building a network of supportive collaborators can be invaluable.

  5. Focus on Business Development: If you're an entrepreneur or founder, prioritize business development. Concentrate on creating a sustainable business model, efficient fundraising, and optimizing your supply chain. Ensuring that your revenue streams are strong and consistent is essential for long-term success.
