From Welfare to CEO by Korena Keys is an inspiring tale of a single mother's journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur. It demonstrates the resilience, sacrifices, and determination needed to succeed in business and family life. The author offers valuable insights and practical advice for women on overcoming obstacles, building confidence, and leading with integrity. She also encourages readers to defy societal limitations and pursue their dreams with passion and purpose. She talks about how she was determined not to settle for less and instead strived for growth and success. From overcoming doubt and shame to taking risks and becoming an entrepreneur, she embodied resilience, honesty, and hard work. With her core value of family first, she navigated life's obstacles and endeavors and hopes to leave a meaningful legacy for her loved ones.

I feel enriched and motivated after reading From Welfare to CEO by Korena Keys. The book emphasizes that we tend to restrict ourselves based on what we perceive in our surroundings, but we always have the option to look beyond and strive for something greater. This book is not just empowering for women but for anyone who feels like they have hit a dead end. It reminds us that even when doors are closed, there is always a window we can use to find a way forward. The author covers a variety of topics that are often overlooked, such as women supporting each other in the world of business, finding a supportive partner and a bank that aligns with your values. These pieces of advice make the book a valuable resource and provide a wealth of knowledge. The author's creativity is also on display with the inclusion of illustrations and clever acronyms, making the reading experience enjoyable. Keys’ story serves as a powerful reminder to dream big, persevere, and embrace the intricacies of a blended world where personal, professional, and spiritual aspects of life intertwine. I believe that everyone can benefit from her story and gain inspiration, motivation, and a fresh perspective on how to navigate the challenges of life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking such guidance.
