"Live like most people won't, so you can live like most people can't."
"Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life."

Author Quinisha Jackson-Wright reveals the harsh truths about entrepreneurship, like shaky income, loneliness, and nightmare clients. Working Twice as Hard is a no-holds-barred guide for Black women who want to know the good, bad, and ugly of entrepreneurship.
