Fashionista and lifestyle content creator Cris Njoki has shared her journey to becoming the success story she is today when she was in her early twenties.
In a recent interview, Njoki, who is the Owner Of IKOJN Fashion Brand, shared how she used to make between Ksh200,000 and Ksh300,000 from car boot sales just a little after campus.
The fashionista revisited how she would set up shop over the weekends and the tidy sum she made, “I would go shopping and then attend the car boot sale from Friday to Sunday,” she shared.
It was racks and tents that made her the most money.
“I think the first time I did it I was shocked because in those car boot sales, in a weekend I would make between Ksh200,000 and Ksh300,000. One weekend, considering that I had maybe done shopping for like Ksh15,000. So that time, I was about 22 years old, and it was the first time I made such an amount,” she said.
The budding entrepreneur was not in a rush to spend the money she made until she had a substantial amount,
“I didn’t want to spend the money I had at the time, and I decided to wait until I got a healthy amount and then start spending,” she shared.
She was keen on starting her own brand but found herself spending half the amount with her friends,
“I still wanted to start my own brand and business, but I remember that the first time I made such an amount, I spent half of it with my friends,” she shared.
