In life’s journey we often label ourselves and others in an attempt to derive sense and understanding. This doesn’t empower, it weakens. Don’t buy into the lie that this is a position of power, it is in fact a position of limitation.Remember, it’s up to you to define who you are. It’s not what they call you, It’s what you respond to.

When life is about choices and opportunities, you have to grab them as they come. Harrison Ashioya/ Harry Ash of the famed group called BMF is of those rising entrepreneurs who made a choice of starting his own side business as he continues to minister as an artiste.
Harry Ash Closet is the new brand that you might have seen on most gospel videos as the business dresses artistes in exchange for marketing on their videos. Long are the days when one would sit on his/her own chair in the office as now everyone is strategizing on how best to reach is or her market.
We sat down with him and told us more about his clothing line and why he decided to go into business.
When did you start business ?
I started my business from home because there was one time when we wanted to shoot a video and it reached a point where we didn’t have clothes to dress for the video and that’s when I got the idea. My drive was to help artistes look good on videos.
Does you choosing to go to business mean that BMF is not there anymore
No not at all. We are all involved in different projects at the moment but in the future you will see something from us.
Any Challenges in business
Being an entrepreneur I have gone through circumstances that have made me grow in business. One thing is the issue of working with clients who promise to pay and end up not paying. Another thing is when i have to go and drop my merchandise to clients who are not near my business which is quite costly.
Where is your business located ?
My business is located Jamia mall in the CBD, shop number 5.
What are the services you offer at Harry Ash closet ?
We dress most of our clients on video and photo shoots but we have also grown to dress clients who visit events, offices and add to that we do image consultancy and branding of t-shirts.
How do you get your clients and how were you able to establish yourself in business
1.For me when starting I found a ready market as I was in music industry so most of my clients were artistes.
2. Being in the social media space I tend to find most clients from people who follow me or have heard of what I do.
Dreams and aspirations in business
I hope to penetrate in the corporate world and reach out to new markets.

My long time friend Gikunda once told me working hard is too overrated. I didn’t understand how working hard is overrated because all I hear and know is that If you want success, you have to work hard and never quit or give up. He told me, most of the young people nowadays keep themselves very busy all day and working really hard on things that don’t matter. He said that it’s not about just working and working hard, one needs to work smart and tactful on something beneficial.
I gave his argument a thought and I realized that this is actually very true. Most of us really work hard, but we work hard on the wrong things. We have our priorities twisted and we work our minds off on things that doesn’t matter. Most of us have genius minds, but we are really scared to start something new or do something out of your comfort zone. Young people come to me with proposals everyday, when I ask them what they are doing differently than the already existing company, they have no answer because they don’t want to go an extra mile. They want things to work within their comfort zone but that’s not how things happen.
Steve Jobs once said, “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
Whatever you do, know are connecting some dots that you can’t connect looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. You have to believe in new things, you need to believe in your abilities and not just keeping yourself busy doing nothing, but actually working something out.
This is a very great week for Africa, and most important to Kenyans. We are hosting Global Entrepreneurship Summit. This means we have so much to offer in terms of entrepreneurship. Let’s keep our spirits high and keep moving forward and connecting the dots. Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish.
Erica Campbell, one half of Grammy award-winning gospel duo Mary Mary, recently opened up about faith and purpose while recalling how an atheist fan once got saved after listening to her music.
In an interview with Rollingout magazine, Campbell, who graces the latest cover, said that propelling people closer to faith through her music is validation from God that she’s on the right track in fulfilling her purpose.
The “I Luh God” singer recalled a time that she and her sister, Tina, met an atheist woman who shared with them that she had found Jesus after hearing their “God in Me” song from Mary Mary’s fourth studio album The Sound.
“Tina and I were doing an event called Women of Faith … this girl came running up to us really frantic. She said that she was an atheist, but she heard “God in Me” in the club, and loved the song,” Campbell told Rollingout. “She said that she went and bought the record, but when she listened to the first song she thought, ‘I don’t want no gospel record — what is this?’ But because she loved “God in Me” so much, she listened to it and at first she thought that maybe she’ll just go to church once.”
She continued: “She ended up going to church and giving her life to God. It changed her whole life. … To me, that’s better than any award, a Grammy, or even a million albums sold. It’s better than the most famous person in the world talking about how much they love my music. To change someone’s life in that way is priceless. I think that’s the kind of stuff that makes God happy. That’s the only reason I do this.”
