How Dawn Dickson Launched and Secured Capital for Her Enterprises!

"Go for it!! It is hard, you have to put in work and don’t expect handouts from anyone. They say it takes 10 years to be an ‘overnight success’. I have been a full time entrepreneur for 18 years and I have been working on my latest companies for 7- 8 years before we started to gain some real traction.

" If your job doesn’t let you be creative; or you don’t have that dream job yet, use your current job as a placeholder until you are able to get your “dream” job. Make the most of your current job and use it as an investor until you get to Point B. Don’t get stagnant at your day job, volunteer and find other things that would help you reach your goal.
