Being a teen mom poses many challenges in life. Having a child at such a young age makes it difficult to live the normal life of a teenager. If that was not hard enough, society looks down on teenage moms and judges them for their situation. Wileena Joseph was a teen mom herself and struggled against all of these stereotypes, but would not be what society labeled her as.
Wileena eventually began a job and became a part of corporate America. She quickly realized she was losing valuable time with her children as well as being overlooked for promotions and new positions. Her job, overall, was not giving her much satisfaction in life. Wileena realized that she needed a change to get away from the lifestyle of corporate America.
Wileena wanted to leave this way of life. She was inspired by her own struggles with her credit to begin her own business in financial literacy and credit repair. Like many others around her, financial literacy was not something that was frequently talked about. She knew that many others needed help with their credit as she did.
Wileena believes that her business is important because it gives back to the community as much as it helps her achieve financial freedom. For her, she knew it was her responsibility to begin helping others understand their credit and finances as she did because it could help so many people live better lives. Wileena, in the future, will continue her business to help more people.
