    • You have a comfortable writing style. The result is that the book is an ‘easy read.’ In my view, that is important as it allows the book to embrace a wide audience from educators, researchers, entrepreneurs, ‘wanna be’ entrepreneurs, and sacked employees looking for a way to salvage their future.
    • I really enjoyed the quotes you had at the beginning of each chapter, and scattered throughout the book. They were inspiring and very relevant to me as a leader, entrepreneur, and reader of your book. Some of your quotes were familiar, but, there were some which I had not read before. I appreciate that you did not just copy from another author, but your quotes show diligent research and unique creativity. I appreciated that.
    • I also found your ‘Lessons’ learned at the end of each chapter helpful. They pulled together, very succinctly, the life lessons for each story chapter. That helped to make the stories personal and more meaningful to me. I found myself applying the ‘Lessons’ to myself as I read through them.
    • I enjoyed the stories. It was clear the stories were real stories involving real people with genuine experiences. The stories were told in a simple and straightforward manner with little fanfare or ‘fluff’. That made them endearing and powerful.
    It was a joy to read your little book, Vincent. I found it uplifting and highly relevant. I am sure in reading your book, those facing the crossroads of vocational direction will be filled with new peace and understanding for their present, and hope and anticipation for their future.

    The quotes show diligent research and unique creativity. I appreciated that! Ray Barreth Serial Entrepreneur and CEO Agora Enterprises

    Employment can deceive you big time. Many have been disillusioned by lifestyles created and supported by their employer: you will have a company car, maybe even a driver, entertainment allowances, VIP passes and invitations to fancy events, hobnobbing with who’s whos of society at prestigious hotels, expensive club memberships and networking hobbies such as golf. You will watch people trip over themselves to deliver gifts at Christmas time. You will receive undeserved respect and preferential treatment. It’s all good, however, you best not begin feeling entitled, remember the pecks are for the position, not you. Be humble. Sit down.
    .
    Think about how much circumstances would change if you didn’t have that job title, that position of power and influence. Unemployment is possible for anyone through no fault of theirs: it could be corporate restructuring, job redundancy, cost cutting retrenchements, corporate politics, end of contract. Being self employed doesn’t exempt you from the overall risk because even great businesses have been known to collapse.
    .
    So what do you do when that job that has come to define you and give you stability is gone? It is time to audit your skills, experience and look for opportunities. It is surprising that those retrenched, sacked or retired go on to become more successful than when they were in employment. Your future relies on your mindset.
    .
    This book tells of individuals who found themselves without jobs or lost their businesses for one reason or another; and their journey and strategies on re-building self. It also offers reflection for those that forecast that one day they will exit formal employment and pursue individual goals.
    .
    Meanwhile, many remain in employment for the fear of the unknown. This book is for you too. I could tell you what says about fear and faith but it’s even better if you read it yourself.

    Book Review: Sacked? So What! – Power of Hope and Action by Vincent Ogutu
    EKOROI Book Reviews Sacked_So What- Power of Hope and Action by Vincent Ogutu
    This is the second book by the same author that I am reviewing.
    The book, Sacked? So What! – Power of Hope and Action is mainly about how to overcome job loss.
    Nothing prepares one for loss of income.
    Ogutu writes in easy-to-read English and short phrases that are very catchy and easy to remember.
    The Author’s gifted mind can be seen in the weaving of words that inject someone with the, ‘YES I CAN’ attitude.
    In this book real people, across Kenya and Africa share their stories of how they overcame adversity and triumphed.
    There’s a chapter about a person coming from nothing, how they built their careers and business, and there’s also the picking up after getting fired from a high-flying job.

    The lessons that the book gives can be summarized as, pick yourself up fast, have a goal, focus on that goal, pick up and respect referrals, plan to pay debts, invest in quality friends and employees, and network consistently.
    I challenge you to buy the book from Nuria Store and read the story of Calisto Omondi.
    Don’t be poor,
    P – passing
    O – over
    O – opportunities
    R – repeatedly
    Focus on the present and where you want to go. Never dwell on your past failure. Success comes from common things done extraordinarily.
    The book heavily leans on entrepreneurship as a way to success. Is this its target audience?
    This explains much about the author who is a business and personal development coach.
    The problem majorly is lack of innovation and not money. How else do you explain a hawker starting a business with 3000 and ending up a millionaire? An apprentice starting with no money buys out the boss. Focus on the problem you want to solve and the skills that are required. – Vincent Ogutu
    If you are feeling lost, empty and insufficient, this book is for you.
    Strategies on rebuilding the self; planning, preparing, and executing those plans, litter the pages of the book, especially, the summary of lessons shared at the end of each chapter.
    Have a motivating day!

    Edwin Otieno a HR Practitioner- Review
    So one day after payday you decide to go book shopping.
    You buy lots of books and place them neatly on your book-shelf.
    When it’s time to read, you start with the popular ones: Trevor Noah’s”Born a Crime”, Chinua Achebe’s “There Was a Country”, Dan Brown’s “Inferno” and so on.
    Then one night you find yourself bored, after having finished re-reading Dan Senor’s “Start Up Nation”, which you had to pen a review for. You check what’s on the book-shelf and think to yourself: there are only boring books left here.
    You pick one anyway.
    It’s titled “*Sacked So What!*” and is by an author named Vincent Ogutu, whom you’ve come across his books few times.
    As you peruse through the synopsis at the back of the cover, you wonder why on earth you bought the book.
    It doesn’t seem at all interesting. It’s not even your favourite genre.

    You take it to bed to read anyway, because you spent Ksh.1000 buying it and there’s no way you’re going to let your hard-earned money go down the drain.

    Twenty minutes into reading the book, you go to make yourself a strong cup of coffee and bring a pen and high-lighter, because you realise that there’s NO WAY that you’re going to put the book down until you’re done with it. It’s so brilliant and so well-written that you slap yourself for not having read it earlier and for judging it prematurely.
    That’s been my situation the last week.

    Vincent ushers you into the world with plethora of opportunities with captivating tales of those who’ve been several times but had the unwavering faith that all ends well and if it is not well then it’s not the end.
    One of the greatest books to read during this time of uncertainty.
    Absolutely unputdownable.

    Get this book, y’all.

    Vincent Ogutu, may your pen never run dry of ink. You’re a dynamite.
