Kedma Ough is a multipreneur, if it weren’t challenging enough to take it one step at a time as a serial entrepreneur, which she also is.

A fifth generation entrepreneur with many successes – as well as a bankrupcty – Kedma is busy growing her own two businesses while she also helps women and minorities turn their dreams and ideas into profitable reality.

Passionate about helping entrepreneurs attract, grow, keep and leverage their money, Kedma teaches founders of businesses large and small, in all industries how to raise the capital needed to grow and scale.

Here’s what you will learn from this podcast:

  • How to juggle multiple businesses and jobs and kids all at the same time and keep a smile on your face
  • How to survive bankruptcy – and more importantly, how to avoid it
  • Why women should never comingle their finances with their husbands
  • How to live below your means and keep saving 20% of everything you earn so you always have leverage to grow your business
  • And much more!
