In this episode I had an exciting conversation with Johanne Brierre. Johanne, of Haitian descent, is a connector and community builder for small business operations. 

Johanne’s passion for community building has led to her success in various projects in the Brooklyn area. Her work has contributed to Brooklyn Commons scaling to the coworking space it is today, and its expansion to a new location. She believes that as a Caribbean community we should work together and build together. Her goal is making sure that our people and our culture survive the new real estate spaces in Brooklyn. Her second project, NY Beauty Suites, began during the pandemic. Johanne tells us the story of how her niece inspired this latest venture. Because few real estate developers were willing to invest in the beauty industry at the time, Johanne took a chance by opening up commercial space for them.

Johanne and I talk also talked about pursuing your gift and the joy it brings.
