Happy New month my people!

Psalm 103:5 He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

The year is fast getting away. I hope you’re adjusting to the speed. A lot is yet to be done. I am not sure about the length of your 2017 To-Do-List but mine is quite long. Most important of all is that I should have the first SUED Designer Watch premier latest in August. That means lots of strings need to be pulled. But well… that is what I signed up for! Passion is the propeller.

As you know by now, I left the show yesterday night! Sad sad story! (insert tears and all the sad things you know). I know it is still hard to come to terms with the events, but acceptance is always the first stage to progress.

The reason I got out, as was said, is that I was not a team player. Something, considering all my earlier tasks, I find hard to believe.

If you have been watching the show, you must have noticed that none of my team members have ever complained of my teamwork skills. Since Episode 1! My favourite remains Episode 2 when I played team leader. I gave it my very best. And I worked with the team 100%. Maybe the truth is, there was a lack of leadership in my team for the KQ challenge. But as always, the judges decision is final!

I’d love to hear from you my guys. How do you think I did on the show? Did you learn anything from my escapades? What was your favorite of me? Let me know:-)

I have had time to think about all that has happened in the past months. From the first watch I sold, to the Blaze auditions, to me being shortlisted and being part of the 12 amazing young entrepreneurs across the country.

I must admit my spiritual-self is at peace. Having just cleared uni late last year, I think this is the best way I could kickstart my after-school life: a chance to pursue my passion for watches, a chance to be on National TV for entrepreneurial reasons plus overall, a chance to inspire millions of people and become a role model to my generation!! For all this I would only say, “Thank You Lord!”.

At 23 years, this is a mega blessing.

I am on the right path!

Of course my human-self is disappointed. I’m full of many thoughts. “You could have done better than this Susan… You know how much you would have done with 5 Million?” And tbh, it is expected. “Rise above it girl! You cannot go back in time and change what has happened. But you can create time and design! And grow with what you have. Run with that one. What was your grandmother doing at this age?” LOL.

All this has reminded me of the story of Naaman in the Bible. How he received his healing of leprosy. His expectations were that Elisha would perform an instant healing miracle. He already had a script! He was taken by surprise when the prophet told him to go wash in the River Jordan seven times to get his healing. He was highly regarded, and he probably thought there were better rivers than Jordan. But because he knew what he was after he went for it! By now you know, I know what I want! The Question is do you know what you want?

All along I had formulated a script for God in my head! This is how I saw it; win that 5 million and manufacture all the watch designs you have ever sketched. Then live happily ever after :-).

Getting kicked out of the race has made me realize that God’s plan is not one of those calls you formulate scripts for before you hit the call button… I will call, say this, then the other party will say that, which I will counter with this… The script Master could have something totally different on the other end! You might need to take that extra leap of Faith and dip yourself Seven times in River Jordan. It took more energy and time, but Naaman still got his healing. This incident changed Naaman’s view of the God of Israel.

Definitely things did not play out as I wanted, but I know that I am about to part ways with my leprosy. I’m on the right path. No, SUED is not a disease; but the development stage of every start-up feels more like leprosy!

Psalm 139:16-17 gives more confidence than I could ask for.

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

God has it all figured out, before I was even born. He saw this very day of my life. The moment I came to terms with the fact that it’s not my life anymore, He took the wheel. The story goes on. Keep believing. Let it play out. The only way is up!

If I have to wash myself a thousand times in the ‘River Jordan’ to see the SUED NATION rise, then I will!

Until next time, catch up with Naaman in 2nd Kings Chapter 5 and subscribe to the blog!

God Bless!

    I think you played it cool. Its just unfortunate that this episode was a bit tough. There was a thin line cause everyone seemed okay and it was hard determining who should leave. However, am sure you learnt a lot and you have a lot to accomplish as well. Well done.

    I didn’t watch much of the show but the few episodes I did on YouTube I indeed loved your spirit, nature & persona. All I can say is that you did really well and I am as happy that you regard yourself very highly.

    Comment: I think its not really about who gets to decide whether you are a good team player or not…but its also about you personally knowing yourself and the impact that you bring into the team and that, my friend no one can take away from you so regardless of whether you won or lost am still very proud of you…you did good.

    Well the challenge was tricky how did you guys get churchill to do your advert. For a moment i was scared for you guys when the slides played half way. But this far you ought to be proud of yourself how many of your peers have achieved what you have. You only have to keep going and all the best.

    Watching episode 2, I remember telling my friend (watching with me), ” I hope some day in this life I get to work with this girl. You were evicted? Rejoice because that may just be the spark you needed to make it big. I hope to invest with you some time in future. Your passion is top level.

    I believe we all go through fire, just as gold does before we can finally shine. All it takes is one step at a time, but we sure can go far…Time will tell,how much of a great designer you are Sue.You did well while at the show, but that was a platform to greater heights.No matter how long it takes,God will get you there!All the best

    Despite the disappointments you are still on the right path,the bible says God will never leave nor forsake you. Who knows your next miracle,for example managing a multinational company listed in New York Stock Exchange.
    Also the bible says that I knew you even before you were born Jer. 33.
    God has not yet finished with you

    Well, Sue, you’re quite the person. By now, I would have among other things ranted about how Caroline Mutoko doesn’t like my long indigenous name, and about how King Kaka knows I prefer Khaligraph to his rap. In short I would have formulated all the conspiracy theories available on the face of earth, and blamed my eviction on poor government policies. But you’re cool people, you take it head high, because you know your worth. And for that, the road ahead of you is a better path to walk on than the road behind you. So walk on it… All the best Sue.

    I think by being part of the BYOB show enabled you to grow to some point. Better yet, it acted as a platform for you yo shiw case you talents n skills. I think you used the platform in a good way. Both for growth and to market SUED (your company) which is a good thing. I dint know you company existed and now I wana make my order…hehehe. Well done Sue.

    Sue, God has a defined path for you. Sometimes you may think that would have been the greatest opportunity for you, 5M, but hey, look, its opened up your mind. Just think, are you worth 5M, noo, God views you as worth greater than that. Pick up the learnings, build up your empire!!

    It was sad to see you leave considering you were my favourite contestant on the show. Keep up with the same spirit of positivity and surely greater things are in store for you….

    Your writing also is impeccable and inspiring.
