In 2015, The Memo LLC was created, and it blows my mind that on August 20, 2019, my debut book with Hachette Book Group, The Memo: What Women of Color Need To Know To Secure A Seat At The Table will be available wherever you like to buy your books. I realized there was a gap in business and career books for black and brown women and for our experiences in the workplace.
I didn’t start out planning to be a single, working mother. In fact, I grew up imagining a huge family: meeting the man of my dreams in college and getting married soon after; I’d have my first child of five by the time I was 24, and then start my career as a stay-at-home mom. Easy. No worries.
Except, the old adage that life doesn’t usually work out the way we plan… it applies more often than not.
