Run The World | Fashion & Apparel | Atlanta, GA
What challenges have you faced in life that make becoming an entrepreneur more difficult OR better prepared you for entrepreneurship?
I was born in raised in Oakland. Growing I did not see many businesses in my community owned by people that looked like me. Consequently I did not think entrepreneurship was an option for me.
When did you first know you wanted to be an entrepreneur?
Not until I got into the workforce and figured out that working a conventional job was not for me.
What or who inspires you?
