Assisting People develop their minds & hearts

About Winnie

Hi there. My name is Winnie Nantongo and I am a Ugandan Personal development blogger, motivational speaker, an entrepreneur, activist, reader, listener, learner, lover, nerd and human.

To be honest, I don’t like the idea of limiting myself.

Anyway, I started out as a novice at 411 UG a Ugandan entertainment blog then later contributed to several entertainment websites along the way before I decided to start my own personal development blog due to the desire to assist people develop their minds and hearts.

How I Started

The Realization

Since I was eleven years of age in my Primary six, I always had a dream to change the world in a positive manner. I didn’t know how at the moment but my love for story telling compelled me to start a social media account in my senior two where I could share those short inspiring stories and this later introduced me to blogging though at the time, I started with writing for different entertainment blogs.

However, I started my social media presence back in 2012 on Facebook with a sole intention to just have that one easy location online where I could share short inspiring messages. Little did I know that this simple gesture got many people interested thus compelled me to do something bigger than just posting on Facebook. And that is exactly how the idea of a personal development blog came to mind.

Today, my self improvement articles have featured on several different blogs including MTN Uganda’s MTN Pulse blog and I have also been nominated for the Teens favorite blogger/Author in the 2018 Walk of fame teens awards.

About the Blog

This is a Personal development/self improvement blog. Initially, this was a place for me to share my own stories of life but later realized that this wasn’t just about me but us.

Here, expect to find posts on personality development, self-esteem, motivation, simplicity, reducing stress, spirituality, letting go, minimalism and much more.

Consider this as a place to assist you develop your minds and hearts.
