Entrepreneurship is a way that many young People of Color are circumventing the gatekeepers and barriers-to-entry that exist within traditional companies — no more HR departments, resumes, and college degrees are needed in order to enter a field.
Instead, entrepreneurs need smarts, training, hustle, dedication, stamina, networks and grit — things that are available to a wider range of people from a wider range of backgrounds. In this discussion, entrepreneur Jamel Mosely
and Mel eMedia
will interview Patrick Harris Jr., President of Collectiveffort
, Rachelle Pean, LCSW, Founder of Chelle Marie Wellness LLC
, and Jinah Kim, Owner of Sunhee’s Farm and Kitchen —
three Creative Economy entrepreneurs who are creating their own career tracks, without big companies or gatekeepers getting in the way.
