I am Aubin Katuku. I am originally from Democratic Republic of Congo. I moved to Canada 10 years ago. Back in Congo, I worked as a lawyer and had to relocate with my family because of political issues.
Settling in a foreign country is not easy, especially when you are accompanied with underage children. Everything was different, new way of doing things, new school system, new culture to adapt to, new language. From being a respected lawyer, I found myself loading and offloading trucks for Walmart just to put food on the table for my family. I spent 4 months in their warehouse while taking English classes. It really was a painful period because I didn’t like anything about that job. I was mentally down.
At the end of my English classes, I was offered to work as a Settlement and Orientation Counsellor for a Francophone Non-Profit Organization. This was a better job. The salary was not what I wanted but being able to help struggling newcomers gave me much joy.
In 2016, the government decided to stop funding this organization, sending everyone out of work. I took that as a sign to start something of my own. I tried every business I could find, from affiliate marketing, ecommerce, real estate, amazon FBA…nothing seemed to work. I took countless online courses, joined many programs, and bought all kind of software. I went on to becoming a certified life coach just to understand that the problem might be with my intern blueprint. From there I started studying everything I could find on the mind. Being invited to join MKE was in itself a breakthrough for me.
Today, I own a marketing agency with expertise on display ads and reputation marketing.
