Shala's story

Hello, My name is Shala I am the founder of SmileBrite Homecare Services/ A Place like Home AFC. I am 28 years old. I grew up in the city of Flint, MI. It has always been my dream to become an entrepreneur. I graduated from Flint Schools of Choice in 2009. Upon my graduation, I knew it was my first step to success. Throughout high school, I faced many challenges such as becoming a teen parent and depression. That wasn’t enough to stop me from pursuing my goals. Beginning of time I didn’t understand how to start my entrepreneurship and always had a fear of failing. I went out to Las Vegas in March 2019 where I meet a great Mentor Dominique. I spoke with him about my ideas that I had. He told me “ Feel the Fear and do it Anyways “. “ The world is in your backyard”. It sat in on me. I let him know that was all I needed. When I return home I went to work on my goals. Caring for others has always been a part of me. The days at work walking through the hallways and entering residents’ rooms they were sad and wanting to go home or live more comfortably. The idea came to me and I said to myself I can create an affordable homecare company first then start my AFC so that when the idea of SmileBrite Homecare Services came and it was established on March 23, 2019. I knew I couldn’t stop there when SmileBrite HCS made 10 months of success that when I started A “Place Like Home AFC” offers affordable residence for their family so they can have a very comfortable private space to place there loved one. Generation success is very important creating businesses will continue the journey. Creating employment in my city has been the most memorable thing for my business. It puts a smile on my face to know I’m helping others not just in healthcare just in life. I will continue to stay focus help my community and my future consumers to be the best they can be.
