How has your experiences at Georgia State played a role in your becoming an entrepreneur?
My MBA has played a huge role in becoming an entrepreneur, it has equipped me to identify and solve problems. After completing my MBA I feel confident to understand and tackle the daily role of a CEO. Also, I’ve been able to connect with other alumni entrepreneurs, having a network who can share their experiences has allowed us to learn quickly.
How did you find your team?
I reached out to family and friends who I thought would compliment my skillset. I found people who believed in the idea just as much as I do. Find people who make you better, find people who are passionate about the idea – people who want it just as bad as you do.
What does entrepreneurship mean to you?
Entrepreneurship to me means freedom. It means creating ecosystems of wealth to provide opportunity, employment and products for my community.
What role has Atlanta played in your entrepreneurial journey?
Being in Atlanta has shown me that anything is possible. Atlanta is the mecca for black entrepreneurs, seeing so many black entrepreneurs build their businesses from the ground up, I’ve been encouraged and motivated to build my own company. Also, Atlanta is a hub for black music. I’ve experienced so much musically from concerts and festivals here, I don’t think I would have had these experiences anywhere else.
What advice can you offer to entrepreneurs?
Go for it! You truly never know unless you try.
