She dared to walk into the unknown...
Detroit: At one time Monica Morgan was like so many photographers -- just a local photographer. But something happened to her. She took a calculated risk and it paid off. And, then she got serious about running a business.
In this show you can learn many lessons about sole proprietorships, risk-taking, sharing, mentoring, being mentored, and chutzpah (even temerity). We also learn about the work of a local Small Business Development Center which is part of the US Small Business Administration. Monica got some sound advice; after just two years of working from her home, she opened her studio downtown.
Today, Monica runs a full-service photography studio and is at the top of her game. She is a photojournalist who contributes to Newsweek, Jet, the Detroiter and the Associated Press. Rosa Parks first commissioned Monica to do the cover for her bestseller, Quiet Strength, then she became Rosa's photographer.
We all ask, "How can I get to the top of my profession?" In this episode you'll learn from someone who has done it. We have seen this so many times.
Mix one part courage (heart, the muscle) with two parts intelligence (brains, that deep knowledge of your profession) and three parts tenacity (personal will), and then constantly reinvent the formula.
Magic begins to happen.
