Have you ever wanted to start up your side hustle business but you always hold back because of the busy engagements at your workplace?
Well, the story of a 27-year-old student at Daystar University who works as a taxi driver and cabin crew member will motivate you to take a step of faith towards achieving your financial stability and success in life.
Born in a poor family and taken care of by her grandmother after her parents divorced, Ntinyari Rutere, the firstborn in her family, knew she had to work hard in life to make ends meet.
Rutere’s typical day usually starts at 4.30am when she wakes up and drives to Wilson Airport for her morning shift as cabin crew member.
“My work shift is very flexible because I mostly do mid morning flights and I usually come back at around 1pm. Once I arrive I check out the passengers and turn on my Taxify application because most of our passengers want to use taxi to drive to town,” said Ntinyari in an exclusive interview with TUKO.co.ke.
Once she drops her clients in the Central Business District, the hardworking mother of one then joins her sister in delivering items to clients who orders from her clothes business.
“Ater like one ride or more, I reach out to my sister who manages my SN Trendywear business and ask if there are deliveries to be made, if there are then I deliver and quickly get back to my taxi business until 5pm,” she said.
She then goes for her evening classes at Daystar University where she is studying electronic media and public relations.
“I know life is very difficult but you have to survive, be determined and do your best. Drop the mentality that this city belongs to the rich, it all belongs to us what determines is how you are determined to make ends meet,” she said.
