Question: When you finally decided to take the leap of faith and launch your brand, were you faced with more doubters or more supporters in your immediate circle of friends and family?

Gayima invites a few dope women from her entrepreneurial circle she calls #ladybossess to share their thoughts and experiences in response to the question.  

“I invited one woman who is based on The Continent, First-Generation Ghanian-American, one woman who based in the US that is Second-Generation Sierra Leonean-American, and one woman that is based in the US that is African-American.  I think listeners will connect with these ladies through their shared experiences of launching their brands, especially as women with African ancestry.  – Gayima
