A qualified marketer and author, Audrey Chirenje is a lady who integrated her entrepreneurial spirit and creativeness to come out with Chances Inc.
“I published my first book in December 2019. Chances Inspiration Inc was registered in 2021, the inspiration behind it was to have a platform where I could distribute my books, then also offer literacy and marketing consultancy services to all.
“I have done a lot of “hustles”, Avon, Tupperware, Angel, peanut butter sales, cross boarder trading and I had two tables at the Flea Market once upon a time selling clothes, shoes etc. Most of this I did while fully employed so that’s how I have learnt how to keep pushing and maintaining a balance,” Chirenje revealed to The Entrepreneurial Magazine.
Chances Inspiration Inc offer literacy services like editing, proofreading and the whole publishing package. They also have marketing consultancy services, as well as team building, training, speaking and MC facilities for events.
Because Chances Inspiration Inc appreciates that everyone is unique, their services are personalised and are fortified on the notion of ‘learning and unlearning.’
The vision of the company is to ensure everyone embraces their uniqueness and use it to fulfil their purpose.
Throughout her journey her inspiration comes from her children, family, friends old and new which include some from church, colleagues, and associates.
