Cent Warrior is a community of non-conformist financial warriors who don’t abide by prevailing economic ideologies and views. We are creating a tribe of Cent Warriors driven by the need to change their financial well-being and that of the people around them.
We do that through research-based content creation and promise timely solutions to financial problems that most of our fellow citizens face but can’t break free from. And through this blog, we can share our experiences and life lessons with the masses.
Our mission is to expose people to financial literacy and equip them with the right financial skills to build a solid financial foundation, improve their financial wellness, and eventually create the ultimate legacy – lasting wealth.
Why We Exist
As Cent Warrior, we exist to solve people’s financial problems, especially about the following:
1. Getting out of Debt
The debt cancer is real and even more severe than ever in the country. From the government level to our homes, the country is succumbing to debt disease, and we all need urgent intervention.
Some borrow because circumstances force them, while others it’s poor financial planning and lack of financial literacy.
As Cent Warrior, we call debt as it is, and that’s a disease to one’s financial well-being. For that reason, we don’t advocate for any debt. Instead, we encourage paying our debt as soon as possible, and we have a formula for that.
We walk you through the debt elimination process to enable you to break free from debt and ultimately enjoy financial freedom. We discuss the pitfalls that trap people in debt and provide pragmatic solutions to avoid a reversion.
We’ll go as far as arming you with the right financial tools and skills to avoid debt forever.
2. Creating a Sustainable Emergency Fund
We recognize that most people get into borrowing because of the lack of a financial safety net, and that’s where an emergency fund comes in. We help you appreciate the need for an emergency fund for your rainy day.
We’ll help you set up a sustainable emergency fund according to your financial muscles and income. In one way, this will help you avoid borrowing and attain the peace of mind lacking among debtors and financially unprepared persons.
3. Business and Entrepreneurship
A lot goes into starting a business and becoming an entrepreneur that most Kenyans aren’t aware of. And as Cent warrior, we understand that this information is not readily available, especially for emerging entrepreneurs, and that’s where we come in.
We expose people to fantastic business ideas online and offline, which they can tap into and help them set up successful enterprises in Kenya. We also help people create business plans and understand the business structure, legal considerations, and cost implications of starting a business.
Moreover, we assist people in developing a good marketing plan and building a solid brand identity. Ultimately, we aim to see people succeed in business and entrepreneurship.
Poor decision-making when managing income is a big problem and thus the urgent need for budgeting. Though most of us budget for our money, very few stick to the plan. Sometimes, it’s because the budget is rarely practical, and at other times it’s due to having the wrong financial priorities.
At Cent Warrior, we help you understand a budget’s role, what needs to feature, and what to prioritize when setting up one. We also equip you with the right tools to set up a working and attainable budget.
5. Wise Investing
We understand that working 8 to 5 on a salaried job can’t help you attain financial freedom, at least not soon. It may take much saving, and you probably aren’t that patient.
That’s why we champion the creation of another income stream or several streams, which comes through wise investing. We’ll empower you with the right investment ideas to get the best out of your hard-earned money.
6. Wealth Creation
It doesn’t stop at investing and earning passive income. The end goal is to create wealth for yourself and your family. Through the pieces of information that we share, you’ll learn different ways to diversify your investment and build wealth.
Remember, you only have a few years to work before you retire, and creating enough wealth for your senior years is a clever maneuver, and we can help you do it through financial knowledge impartation.
7. Wealth Protection
What’s the essence of creating wealth and ending up losing it all? So many people have seen their blood and sweat washed away due to poor decision-making and sometimes failing to take up the correct insurance covers.
On that note, we’ll help you choose the right insurance coverage for your home, car, and other assets, but, more importantly, life and medical insurance.
Our vision as Cent Warrior is to create the best education resource in the country on matters of personal finance and business development. We’ll do this through content development, courses, business coaching, books, eBooks, and videos, among other interactive means.
