Committed. Driven. Hungry.
Those were among the words Tuesday’s presenter used to describe what it takes to succeed in the entrepreneurial space.
Rachelle Latimer’s last visit to the Forum in 2017 focused on details what makes success difficult for minority contractors. Today’s might be illuminating for those looking to start their own businesses because Latimer described the scope of her work. Not one business but a number. Not one line of work but a bunch: Consulting, but also construction; flipping houses, but also being a landlord; and learning constantly from those who offer advice.
The presentation begins at minute 9:45. Material from the chat box on the subject of Latimer’s presentation is on this page below the video.
