From Welfare To Entrepreneur: The Welfare Entrepreneur, The Entrepreneur’s Guide To Success In The MarketplaceBy Rikita Watson
I wrote this book to inspire the people that were counted out, overlooked, the underdog, and the dreamer. When I was writing this book, I wanted to encourage the reader to keep believing in yourself no matter what obstacles you face. To keep moving in your vision even if it doesn’t look like what you expected it to be. No matter the hand you are dealt you can to make the best out of a not so good situation. I feel like people sometimes just need a push or even a little nudge to jump start their career. You don’t have to be the smartest person to be successful it starts with a drive and willingness to go even if no one else go’s and to believe in yourself when people think you are crazy for dreaming that big. I wanted the Leaders of today to keep leading even if you only have one person following you keep leading eventually things will turn around for you. I wanted the reader to dream big and take the limits off.
About the Author:
I was born and raised in Philadelphia to two teen parents. Not understanding my purpose in life I became a teen mom determined not to stay in a place of defeat and wanting to break the cycle. I had to turn my situation around of being a teen mom and now on welfare. So, I focused on completing high school and was determined not to drop out. After completing high school, I raised my son as a single mother, so now with no support I had to make a living for my son and I. Which led me down a path of jobs. That’s when I decided being an entrepreneur was best for me and came from welfare to an entrepreneur. Being the first entrepreneur in my family breaking the cycle for the next generation. I didn’t know being my own Boss would even work for me. But now being almost 11 years being an entrepreneur I couldn’t see it being any other way. I am thankful for my path in which I had to take to make me the resilient women I am today and every day I am still being perfected.
