Falesha Raquel is a versatile and multi-talented businesswoman, entertainer, author, and serial entrepreneur. She is a Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Metropolis who is the owner of over half a dozen companies in different sectors. Falesha is one of the very few women to own a Construction Company in North America. She is also an investor and an author of “HER VISION” which is #1 on the Amazon books list.
As a well-accomplished businesswoman, Falesha is a true inspiration for women of color in North America. She is of half-Jamaican/half-Filipino descent as her mother is Filipino and her father is a Jamaican.
According to Falesha, Entrepreneurs often try and fail, then try again after experiencing failure. The track record of serial entrepreneurs is generally seen as different since they have created several successful businesses. Being a serial entrepreneur is no easy feat, as the multifaceted Falesha puts it. To become a serial entrepreneur, one does not need to have expertise in a particular field. It’s appealing to think about becoming an entrepreneur who owns a multitude of businesses, but studies and business performance throughout time indicate that becoming a serial entrepreneur has its strengths and weaknesses.
Falesha learned this the hard way when she decided to get involved in different business niches. Initially, she started her career as an entertainer and established a dancing company Diva Diverse at the young age of 15. Later on, her interests turned towards real estate. Falesha worked hard to expand her field of expertise to become a professional real estate broker and builder.
Her company, Falesha Homes, is quite well-known. Besides working as a fully registered Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Metropolis, she also wrote a book, “Her Vision,” which has been an Amazon Best Seller.
Serial entrepreneurs have many advantages, says Falesha, who explains why she decided to become one. Aside from the potential of increasing earnings with several business ventures, there is also the possibility of serving a much wider market or serving several markets at once. With this potential, there are even more business opportunities in the near future.
The truth is that not everyone or every entrepreneur would make a great serial entrepreneur. In order to properly launch a business or expand an existing one, the entrepreneurs should weigh their advantages and disadvantages. But the exposure the field of serial entrepreneurship provides is what truly compelled her to get into this field.
