Congratulations to “Sisters Are From Heaven” Authors
I feel strongly that family members make the best business partners. My husband and I manage both our home and our business together. It's a lifestyle choice that comes with its own special breed of challenges and yet, we wouldn't have it any other way. But family businesses don't have to be of the spousal variety.
Take Onjeinika Brooks and Tamika Jackson, two sisters whom I met through my work as the Work at Home Network Director for Mocha Moms, the non-profit organization that supports mothers of color who choose to exit the traditional work force while their children are young. Tamika, a photographer, and Onjeinika, a writer, combined their talents and gifts to create and publish Sisters Are From Heaven, a heartwarming children's book that showcases the enduring relationship of sisterhood.
I had the privilege of writing the back cover endorsement for the book, which in part expresses appreciation for the exquisite job the sisters did “of turning everyday moments into lifetime treasures that anyone can enjoy.”
I always say that the central question every business owner must ask daily is, “How can I help you while I make a fair profit?” It's great to see Tamika and Onjeinika asking and answering this question in such a powerful and inspirational way.
