In addition to all of the work involved in running your own business, in many ways, having your own business is exciting and rewarding.
Let’s face it – everyone has a dream and it takes someone with a lot of courage and boldness to step out and make their dream a reality. In the business world, Black women are the fastest growing population of business owners. BlackEnterprise states, “The heroic story of the everyday person with an innovative idea, but little or no financial resources, overcoming long odds to build a successful company by sheer passion, hard work, faith and determination alone, is the dream of many aspiring entrepreneurs.”
Even though many people on the outside see the success of entrepreneurs, what they don’t realize is the struggle behind the scenes.
Miss Jessie’s: Creating A Successful Business From Scratch – Naturally by Miko Branch with Titi Branchbrings an understanding to entrepreneurship.
Without giving too much information, the book details the journey of Miko and her late sister, Titi and how they became pioneers in the natural/curly hair movement.
“The true value of the book is the unflinching candor with which Miko describes her and her sister’s journey from being raised in the Borough of Queens in New York City by an African American father and Japanese American mother, to becoming a pioneering brand in the nascent natural hair products industry, to Miss Jessie’s triumphant retail deal with Target.”
The book addresses their valley moments and how they were able to overcome such obstacles.
For every aspiring entrepreneur who wants to build a business with little to no money, this book will give you step-by-step what to do. Definitely, a MUST READ.
