Shequeta Smith is a trailblazer. When she realized there had never been a black female on the cover of a comic book as a superhero, she decided to change that. In 2016, Shequeta launched the multi media company, Shero Comics, and eventually held the first all female comic convention, SheroCon. Not to mention that for more than fifteen years she's been writing and directing films and award winning screenplays featuring powerful women. Now she's branching out into the gaming industry with a new division of her company Shero Games. On the show she shares why her ability to pivot is her super power, why she believes more people should consider crowdfunding to raise money for their businesses, and why she thinks getting into the gaming industry is a game changer.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why Shequeta believes the ability to pivot is so essential in entrepreneurship
  • How she learned to trust her instincts
  • How confidence was key in her journey
  • How Shequeta saw a need in the comic industry and filled it

They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
