At the age of 5, Denise Sarkor escaped the Liberian Civil War with family and lived as a refugee in Ivory Coast. Raised in a rough part of NJ by a determined mother, she would go on to graduate from The Wharton School on a full scholarship and obtain her Masters in International Finance and Economic Policy from Columbia University. Although entrepreneurship tugged at her heart, she took a safer path, working as an international banker and development consultant at Goldman Sachs and the World Bank.

But after a devastating divorce rocked her to the core, she became fearless. Realizing that Corporate America had led her to yet another glass ceiling, she finally made the leap.

On this episode, you’ll learn how she hit the ground running after quitting unexpectedly and how she’s navigating the twists and turns of starting her own business.

Topics discussed:

  • How she honed in on what services she should offer in her business and how she’s managing cash flow
  • The surprising move she’s willing to make to sustain her business
  • Self-publishing her first book and successfully fundraising on Kickstarter
  • Why Poet and Activist Nikki Giovanni wrote her a personal note of congratulations
