Gloria Michelle Otieno is a young African entrepreneur who hails from Kenya. She is the initiator and CEO of Recours Four Consultants, Kenya.
Otieno grew up watching her father who was an entrepreneur run his own business up to when he attained success. Whenever she was in his office busy with her school assignments she watched her father interact with his staff and always admired their interactions. Her father always told her not to allow big figures scare her. She watched him run and manage his engineering consulting firm and admired his qualities. That was where her entrepreneurship inspiration came from.
She once worked at Kenya Airways but had to quit her job as a result of lack of work satisfaction. She was passionate about Human Resources and wanted to do more in the Human Resources sector and shine in the industry. She always had the feeling that there was a gap in the sector especially with the manner at which youths conducted themselves during interviews.
The manner in which employing companies picked candidates and the quality of candidates been admitted into these workplaces made a striking contribution to her desire to make an impact in the industry. Then she started Recours Four Consultants Limited, which has now grown to over 18 employees.
According to Otieno, Starting up any business is quite challenging because of the need to carve out a unique slot to occupy in the business world. Breaking into the competitive market especially as a starter, getting people to trust and giving the new brand idea a chance to grow is tough going.
