A loan of $3,500 helped hire an assistant and a bookkeeper.

Gail's story

I grew up in the South Bronx on welfare. At 18 years old I had a baby out of wedlock (the child later died through drowning at 16 years old). Even though I grew up on welfare, I was determined to take care of myself and my child and refused further public assistance just because I was an unwed mother.

I was determined to never take a handout again and would earn my own way. I worked in Corporate America for many years as an administrative assistant, then moved into commercial real estate management. While in Corporate America I successfully started and ran my own custom framing and art business.

I have always loved business, people and selling, so one of my last self-employment ventures was as a network marketer through a company called Compass, which introduced to the value of coaching. In that venture, I excelled and became one of the top 25 sales representatives in the company and significantly increased the company's revenue as well as my own. In addition, I changed the lives of hundreds of women and fell in love with coaching.

I am the only entrepreneur in my family, but I am trying to share with my nieces and nephews the value and joy of working for yourself.
