POWER MONDAY PROGRAM
Power Monday Poem
Back in 2020, at the height of COVID-19 pandemic, Live Your Dream noticed the sweeping desperation that gripped the world. Hope was dwindled in many families and for many people. It was looking like tomorrow will never come. This was no good news. LYD thought of a program that would provide encouragement and a positive outlook for life; implanting the hope of a better tomorrow.
Combined with this, it was important that this program be run on a Monday morning to give people the impetus to wake up early, get energized and have a productive week. This was the origin of Power Monday. The idea was muted by Otieno Paul Peter and Noel Khasandi when the former visited the latter at her work station to discuss a leadership book, The Making of a Symphony Orchestra; Timeless Leadership by Otieno Paul Peter. It is true that when great minds meet, great ideas pop up!
Every Monday from 7:30am to 8:15am Nairobi time we hold a free personal development session where we read a book and/or discuss a topic in leadership and other subjects of interest. These are sessions that have helped to nurture many leaders and change lives. They are held on zoom virtual platform and are open for everyone who can rise early on Monday to be both sharpened and inspired for a better week and life. Join us, taste and judge for yourself.

Our Mission and Purpose
At Power Monday, our mission is to provide a platform for sharing knowledge and inspiration for a productive week & successful living. We envision a society of dependable & timeless leaders. Our valuses here included:
- Knowledge sharing
- Integrity in service
- Career support
We discuss a variety of topics cutting across leadership, business, family, career growth, life skills among others. We avoid contentious faith-based topics like religious and political inclinations. Furthermore, we remain objective, professional and respectful. We do invite various sector experts to share their knowledge during the sessions. Through these, the speakers also get to market themselves and products. Many people have been able to achieve great business growth after doing presentations on Power Monday. We also organize Meet & Greet sessions for the members, so they may interact more, create solid networks and build businesses. Meet and Greet events occur on last Saturdays of March, July & October unless advised otherwise.
Besides all these, every 1st Wednesday of the month, Power Monday holds a virtual market day when members join and share what they do or market what they sell. Money exchanges hands.
