I've heard of the Miss Jessie's brand but haven't had the pleasure of using any of their products yet. I am also fully aware of the passing of their co-founder, Titi Branch. Still, I was interested in knowing how the Branch sisters got their start; and their story is very inspiring.

These sisters hustled their butts off to accomplish their professional goals (they literally setup their own manufacturing & distribution center in the basement of their brownstone). Given the instant gratification age that we live in, reading about this level of ambition and hard work is refreshing, especially for those of us out here who understand that consistent success requires rolling up your sleeves and being willing to learn & do everything. Man, I'd love to hear Miko Branch speak in person one day in the future.

With a BA in Women's Studies, and a MS in Professional Counseling, and a love for beauty products, and an interest in wealth building, I was able to read this book from various perspectives. I was able to read critically and between the lines, as the author gave details about their childhood; I was able to pick up things she did not say directly. Something happened to the older sister, when they were in their father's and Grandmother's custody; and it was most likely sexual assault, namely rape.
She had clinical depression which is a high risk factor for suicide.

What I like about the book is that it talks about achieving your dreams, and learn from setbacks, failures, mistakes--and never, never give up--no matter what.

But, while family can help build you up; it can tear you down. Children need their caregivers, especially their mothers to protect them from danger and harm. While we do what we can, we must be MORE responsible as parents.

Great read for all ages, ways and walks of life. The well versed, educated and street-smart NY Branch sisters capture your interest and hearts on page one. Good business tips and real life encouragement. Readers will finish wishing this book didn't end.
