Meet Tomika Young of Meek University

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tomika Young.

Tomika, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
June 1st, 2016 I quit my 9-5 where I was employed for a little over six years, I didn’t have a savings or a plan but I had faith even being a single mom of 2 with 1 being in private school. I dropped my children off at school went to work business as usual and before I knew it, I had packed my entire office and left! The moment I got in my car I was thinking oh my god, now what but I thought really quick and signed up for Uber, I worked in the corporate world 17 years and had never quit without having something better lined up. A few days later, I started driving Uber about three months in I realized I loved the freedom and flexibility of not punching a clock. I started selling hair extensions and business immediately started booming, shortly after I decided to go to China to see the processes of hair extensions that trip was somewhat a game changer, here it is now a couple of years later and I frequent China sourcing different markets as well host China tours. Since I’ve taken several courses and classes traveling to several states to educate myself on business and started doing business consulting, with a focus of building businesses online and Offline, as well I am a motivational speaker.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
For the most part, it has been smooth, due to my dedication to wanting to learn as much as possible. The challenges have been finding exactly what my niche is, although I’ve done well with different projects that I’ve worked on just narrowing down what exactly I wanted to do.

Please tell us about Meek University.
Meek University specializes in helping women start and build businesses where they are with what they have. I am known for being the push starter, I am mostly known for being a straight shooter, I don’t make it cute or pretty I make it plain and say exactly what it is that needs to be said. I am most proud of validating myself I don’t go around looking for validation or applause if I come up with an idea that I feel is great I execute without thinking twice about it, I don’t concern myself with what others think or have to say about what’s happening at meek university. What sets me apart is I want to see everyone win, there is enough money for us all to live good lives, therefore I’m willing to share everything that I know with those who want it.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was extremely quiet and reserved, didn’t talk much, didn’t need to be the center of attention, just observing the scene. I always loved to read books, didn’t watch much tv and currently, do not watch tv at all.
