My name is Richard Mwebesa, born again and lover of the Lord. I was born and grew up in Uganda. I am the voice of Inspiration, Author of books; Out of the Crowd and Inspired by Forty, a life Coach, Motivator, Business Development & Marketing Consultant, Mentor, Lyricist, and Poet.
I am a Certified Business Professional Master Executive, hold an MBA, seasoned marketing, business development, and sales professional with vast experience in those fields. I currently work with a leading diversified financial services group in East and Central Africa. Earlier worked with leading brands in Uganda in the Insurance and technology space, and I do consultancy work with the Insurance Training College of Uganda (ITC). I am passionate about developing systems and unlocking the potential within others.
I have been an active minister for now over 20 years. I was a lead vocalist and lyricist for the award-winning music and gospel dance group Kingdom Dancers. My passion for writing started in High school, where I was an active writer in the weekly school newspaper called the ‘Weekly Herald’ at Nakasongola Army Secondary School and a publishing member of the school magazine. I always wanted to author but the resolutions you always write down year on year and carry forward never happen. In the year 2019 June, I traveled for a conference in cape town, and the facilitators of that asked each participating candidate to pick just 1 task they have always wished to execute and commit to making it happen all the way. Mine was not much to think about, It had always been writing and being an author. I penned it down and affirmed to myself I would find ways to make it happen. I honestly did not know where to start, what to write about and how to do so. My desire was so solid that it out-competed my fear of starting. I got to my knees and prayed about it for God’s counsel and direction, and also asked my Pastor to pray with me about it too. We prayed, and by his Grace, the Lord brought my way answers on how to start and a coach to guide me. However, all in all, the Holy Spirit was my counselor about what to write. I wanted a book that would impact anyone and everyone who read it, one that would minister to lives the gospel but very inspiring and exciting. In four months I had my first manuscript ready, and I had to decide on various titles, and content reviewed, and my first book ‘Out of the Crowd’ was ready for publication.
“Out of the crowd” was birthed from the reality that the world is constantly in pursuit of the best candidates they can get in every field. It is without a doubt that today being the best is not enough, but rather outstanding people have become the new norm of pursuit. Their value is to lead and usher others into greatness. This truth got me asking questions about what things qualify one as an outstanding person? These brought me to the realization that outstanding people are indeed as regular as anyone can be. The underlying fact is that they constantly and perpetually apply specific secrets in their lives. Observing those that have stood out, one will notice constants in them, and when applied appropriately, timely, and consistently this then catapults them to grow and blossom into outstanding people. This revelation ignited me and compelled me to share these secrets and there is no better way to share than authoring a book about it. “Out of the Crowd- The ultimate guide to mastering the art of standing out” was then carefully woven into words that I believe shall provide value to anyone who invests their time to read them.
