MEET OUR FOUNDER/CEO
GWENDOLYN L. YOUNG
In 2013, I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and had to retire from my corporate job. It was during recovery that I said "Lord, what am I supposed to do? How can I take care of myself, do something I love and still contribute to my family financially?"
I heard his response clearly, "it's in your hands." So I started thinking about all the admin and operations work I did in the corporate world for nearly 15 years and began researching if that was possible to do in the virtual space, and found there was an entire industry online doing what I was good at.
I had no plans or desire to become an entrepreneur, but I had a choice to make. Go back to Corporate America and deal with the bureaucracy when it came to needing time off, doctor's visits, etc., continue fighting the social security administration to prove I needed support, OR create a business that had the potential to replace my corporate income, give me the freedom and flexibility I needed to take care of myself, and work with amazing people across the globe. I chose #3.
