In this episode I talk to Raf Hairston, the founder of LVCO and Blakful Network. Raf started both of these companies and grew them to success without a college degree. Raf dives into what it takes to succeed in business, especially if you don't attend college.
Raf Hairston chose to forego college in his early life due to his circumstances, and instead he got a sales job that worked 100% on commission. He could've worked on an assembly line, but he chose to work with his brain instead. He quickly sold his way into the top 1% of his company and was supporting his family very well. This job wasn't his true passion though. He took a risk and it paid off.
He taught himself how to develop apps and websites and started LVCO, a software development company. Raf next started Blakful Network in order to follow his true passion, which is supporting black owned businesses. Blakful Network is a network of a ton of apps, such as, Linkss, Blaklink, OrderUp, Trustful, Analytiful and Blakful. A whole host of apps that helps businesses cut costs and get to customers as efficiently as possible. Learn more about LVCO and Blakful Network at the links below:
