JERESHIA HAWK is the epitome of hard work and dedication.
By day she is a transmission pipeline engineer for a Fortune 500 company helping provide natural gas and electricity to over 6 million people every day and by night runs a consulting business for women who work nine-to-five, but also want to build a business on the side.
The Detroit-based founder of Goal Getter says planning is an important part of success.
She told Blackenterprise.com: “Create a plan and get specific [with it]. How much money do you want to earn a month? How are you going to earn it? What resources do you need to make that happen? What actions do you need to take to achieve your goal?”
Adding: “Don’t get caught up with being busy, [if you are] not actually being productive.”
Jereshia also told the publication that asking for help is also important: “Knowing who to ask for help is more important sometimes than knowing the answer. You need to have a friend, a mentor, or a mastermind to turn to, for when you start feeling unsure of what to do next.”
