There is a brief reference to suicidal ideation in this episode. Listener discretion is advised.  April is the epitome of looking at how a bad situation that many are unable to recover from can turn into a successful business. And understanding how our determination, our will and lots of prayer can help us move from adversity to success.  Today Melissa Bradley is with April Harris, the founder of the New Jersey-based company, Keeping You Sweet. April Harris launched Keeping You Sweet in 2017, offering a delicious array of health conscious desserts. Though succeeding in the competitive food industry (where she is one of few African Americans) can be a challenge, April Harris says she learned a motto from her late mother: “My mom used to always say, 'There’s God and then there’s everybody else. I think that puts it all in perspective. I try to treat everyone the same. I just love the Lord and I lead with love, always.'" Founder Hustle is clear and centered on its mission to help emerging New Majority founders better understand the path ahead, be adequately prepared, and gain support on their journey. Melissa L. Bradley is Founder of 1863 Ventures, a business development program that accelerates New Majority entrepreneurs (i.e., individuals who have been historically marginalized) from high potential to high growth. Credits: Founder Hustle is produced by Kinetic Energy Entertainment.  Associate Producer is Misa Dayson.  The show was edited and mixed by Ann Kane.  Social media producer is Misako Envela.  Our intro theme, Vuelta al Sol, is by Tomás Novoa.  Credit theme is Glide, by Columbia Nights, and the outro is Ratata by Curtis Cole.  Learn more about your ad choices.
