Preamble … I (NK) met Jay a couple months ago at his Posh Night Fridays event at DeJa Vu Lounge. He had given Picha Booth a spot to showcase and off course capture memories. But how I really met him is that I DMd him asking whether he would be open to us coming to set-up at his events and he was like OK, come we see. His only requirement; a Wamlambez – Wamnyonyez prop 🙂 He is honestly the sweetest, kindest and POSHest person I have ever met. He is Plesident material, he moves a crowd with his carefree charm and charisma. We are so glad he is our guest blogger this week! Without further ado …
15 questions with Jay
On turning 30
- How’s 30 taking you so far?
So far, so good. I feel like my mind was prepared for this new age. I was really restless in my twenties. I have bit of focus now.
- What are your goals for this year?
Create lots of content and make lots of money. 🙂
- Advice to your younger self?
Everything in its own time. Be open to love.
- Tell us about your recent travels.
I have been saving for two years for the adventure of a lifetime. As a present to myself for my thirtieth birthday I went on a Euro Trip with a huge group. It was challenging as I knew maybe 5 people in the whole group but I learnt a lot, I learnt to be patient. I learnt to be grateful, I learnt to be aware of my surroundings and most importantly I learnt that east or west home food will always be best.
- How do you finance them?
Lots and lots of savings. I am very afraid of being in debt so I prefer to take my time and save till I achieve my goal.
- What’s the one trick you learned about travel that you wish you knew before the Eurotrip?
LEARN A LANGUAGE.
On personal life
- How do you stay sane in this crazy world?
I have a very supportive group of friends and a very amazing family who keep me sane. Remind me what’s important and why I am doing all this.
- What do you do in your quiet time?
Burning a candle, listening to a podcast, putting on a mask.
- What’s your morning routine like?
I really enjoy watching tutorials, on anything really. I have picked up some handy skills through that. My editing skills for YouTube have benefited from this too.
On your brand
- Tell us a bit about your brand Posh.
It really is just a feel god brand. Posh is a lifestyle that one lives each and every day. I am a testament to it. I am POSH LOL.
- How can people get their hands on merch?
On my page @PoshbyJay on Instagram.
- What ongoing partnerships do you have?
A couple are on the pipeline. It’s the quiet season before the storm.
- When did it all start?
4 years ago.
- What was your vision when you first became an influencer?
I don’t consider myself an influencer; I think I create content that may make someone change their perception on a product or an ideal. That gives me joy.
- What’s the ideal future for Jayson Mbogo?
MAKING LOTS OF MONEY. FINDING LOTS OF LOVE. 🙂
As always, thanks for stopping by.
