“And I’m like these people aren’t working. They’re making money. There’s no businesses in the community. The only thing that they want to do just go file the taxes so they can get a refund. I know it’s something else that we’re missing. So from that point on, I set it to be my mission to basically inform African Americans or not just African American women or men, but any underserved community about their finances. So my goal is, and what keeps me going is knowing that I’m making change in underserved communities about their finances.” – Fosalade Ayegbusi
“One advice that I would actually give them is to say, just don’t give up. There’s no security in the job at all. And the only security that you have is what you are actually committed to do. So many newbie entrepreneurs when they come in, they get shook up so fast or things didn’t work out or project fell through. Don’t give up because the same way that that project fell through, you go back to that job, you can do that job quickly.” – Fosalade Ayegbusi
