Do you consume more than you create? Are you being interrupted by technology or are you utilizing it to disrupt unviable systems? How do you ensure that you get a healthy slice of the pie no matter what industry you’re in? On this episode of UnBossed, serial entrepreneur and social change agent, Sevetri Wilson (@sevetriwilson), offers insight into how she built her businesses: Solid Ground Innovations (SGI) and Resilia - a New Orleans-based technology startup, and how you can begin to think more like a builder and less like a consumer. Having bootstrapped her first business with no capital and becoming the first Black woman in New Orleans to raise over $1,000,000 in venture capital, Wilson’s career is a masterclass in growing healthy businesses from the ground up using the bricks and mortar of hard work, grit, and passion for social change.
