Rochelle’s journey to success has been a long 10 year road full of highs and lows. Whether she’s speaking on a panel, enjoying a vacation, or working in her office, Rochelle always keeps it real by sharing her successes and failures in life and business. She used her own experiences as the major inspiration for writing 90 Days to CEO.  She describes her new book as, 

“ The business blueprint to help as many people as possible also build their dream businesses to create a legacy for their families and become their own success story. This book does more than just inspire, it educates and knowledge is a powerful tool that no one can take from you”.  (Rochelle Graham-Campbell, 2019)

You may be wondering how Rochelle’s story differs from other self-made entrepreneurs. She actually started Alikay Naturals with only $100 from tips she made as a waitress. Well, Rochelle has truly defied the odds being a young, black female in an e-commerce industry designed for people who do not resemble her. Instead of giving up during challenging times, Rochelle persisted and the results speak for themselves with a YouTube channel over 100K subscribers and 17 million views, an innovative and thriving natural hair and beauty business, and reaching the one million revenue mark (a true accomplishment that only two percent of women of color entrepreneurs achieve). Moreover, her accomplishments were achieved without any outside investors or seed money. In addition, Alikay Naturals is one of the first few natural hair brands to be sold in Target and other major retailers, and has enabled opportunities for other black owned brands to do the same. Needless to say, Rochelle is a true pioneer, leader, and boss.
