“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.” If you’ve been laid off and can’t find a job, today’s economy may feel like the worst of times. According to Ali Brown, it may be the best time to become an entrepreneur. In 1998 Ali made the decision to start her life over. She quit her New York ad agency job and decided to go out on her own – and almost failed. But something made her not give up, something that has made all the difference.
As we continue to celebrate our 3rd anniversary with some of your favorite Girlfriend We Gotta Talk radio shows, one of our most inspiring business success shows was our conversation with Ali Brown who shared her personal journey of ups and downs that led her to create an unstinting faith in her own ability and destiny to become one of the more successful female entrepreneurs of her generation.
Ali Brown is fast becoming regarded as the voice for women's entrepreneurial success. As founder and CEO of Ali International LLC, she has created a dynamic enterprise that is devoted to empowering women entrepreneurs around the world and currently has over 50,000 members in her online and offline programs.
