Terryanne Chebet opens up on losing job, financial challenges

Media personality Terryanne Chebet has candidly shared a chapter of her life where she faced financial difficulties after losing her TV job, leading her to sell some of her household items.

In an interview with Nailantei Kenga’s show, Art Of Living, the mother of two revealed the importance of investing in quality possessions.

“I sold some of the things I had when I lost my job at the exact prices that I had bought them, and that is because I understood the value of investing in the good quality of things that I bought,” Terryanne disclosed during the interview.

She explained that she lost her job at a time when she was servicing a Sh4 million loan, with the proceeds used to construct her mother a house.

Terryanne decided not to sell any property but instead engaged with the bank to establish a payment plan.

“When I lost my job, I had a loan of sh 4 million because I had taken that to also support in building my mum’s house. I didn’t want to sell any property to make that get paid. I managed, I talked to the bank and made a payment plan,” she explained.

Acknowledging her spending habits, Terryanne admitted, “I spend a lot on things. Like I love mirrors because they make space bigger than it is.”

When asked about living the life of her dreams, Terryanne responded:

“I would say yes and no. Yes because I did not think I would be where I am today, and no because I know where I want to go.”

In her mid-40s, Terryanne shared her plans for the future, emphasizing her focus on building a retirement home and strengthening her relationship with her children before the nest empties.

She expressed a desire to invest more, having already acquired land for her future home.

“After 50, you do not want to be hustling too much. I want to do the most I can between my 45 years and 50. My plan is to invest more. Hopefully, build my house because I have already bought the land,” Terryanne stated.

She also expressed her commitment to parenting, recognizing the need to be more present in her children’s lives.

“…I want to invest properly in parenting. I have been a very busy parent and I feel like the kids have lost out the touch of a fully immersed engaged mum in their lives. What I am currently doing allows me that space to hangout and cook more for my kids.”

Regarding a potential return to TV, Terryanne conveyed her intention to use the lessons she has learned in the past few years to positively impact others.

Her current focus is on building a legacy and contributing to the well-being of those around her.
