Talk Black Worldwide

This past week, I told the story of my journey to success. At my surprise, I received an awesome reaction. I would like to say thanks Talk Black Worldwide for sharing my story.

 

My Story: Hi! My name is Myeka Johnson – MJ. At the beginning of my career, I was broke, living in poverty, and motherless. At age 17, I was determined to be successful by starting my own company and being a CEO. On April 7th, 2007 (while still in high school) I hosted my first event and it was a success. From then until now, I earned three degrees, I served my country as a Marine, I modeled for major companies such as BETBelkDillard’sKia Motors WorldwideESPN and I modeled overseas in Japan. I wrote my first book at age 22. I was accepted into Harvard University in 2017. I now manage a company that operates in four states, Greenville, South CarolinaAtlanta, GeorgiaChicago, Illinois, and Charlotte, North Carolina. We were nominated for Forbes Under 30 in 2017 and will open another office in 2018. My journey didn’t start off good, but it is good now. You must trust the process. No matter what happens along the journey, what’s meant to be will be. Believe in yourself and don’t allow anyone to take anything away from you. YOU GOT THIS

After sharing my story, Talk Black Worldwide shared my story on their page, which was also where they discussed my idol, Michelle Obama. What an honor to be on the same platform as someone you admire.

Cheers to the New Year

As the year comes to an end, I’m so grateful for what I have been able to achieve in 2017. I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and look at me now. I’m CEO of my own company and I’m part of a group of young adults who have achieved so much. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m excited. This is the last year in my twenties and I’m so stoked for what my 30’s are going to bring. Cheers to the new year 2018. I hope you guys accomplish everything you set your mind to accomplish in the new year. ~ MJ Thanks Forbes Under 30 for the opportunity. Under 30 Changemakers Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit Women@Forbes
