Description


"Be your own boss."


"Live like most people won't, so you can live like most people can't."


"Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life."


You've probably seen these quotes in books about starting a business. What they won't tell you is the truth about what it really takes to be your own boss-especially if you're a Black woman. Author Quinisha Jackson-Wright reveals the harsh truths about entrepreneurship, like shaky income, loneliness, and nightmare clients. Working Twice as Hard is a no-holds-barred guide for Black women who want to know the good, bad, and ugly of entrepreneurship.


You'll read stories from other Black women business owners about:


  • Healing from the wounds of a toxic work culture
  • The task of building a solid support system
  • Ongoing pressure to be a "Strong Black Woman"
  • Setting your own pace in the fast-moving digital era
