Hello, my Friend! My name is Shaneika Burchell-Kerr and I am the founder and CEO of Breakthrough to Entrepreneur. My goal is to develop and empower Entrepreneurs to BE MORE, DO MORE, and EARN MORE, by providing them with the simplest, most effective and efficient tools and resources, to achieve the best result for your business. I create simple educational tools that provide step by step process to becoming a successful entrepreneur and getting the desired revenue. My main focus is on e-commerce, social media, email and digital marketing, and automation.
My story began 8 years ago when I was forced to leave my daughter at a daycare and return back to work. I soon realize I was missing out on everything I was born to do as a mother. You see, my daughter and I had a very strong bond since her birth. I wanted nothing more than to be a part of every moment of her life. I never wanted to be deprived of the opportunity to attend all her school performances, trips, and parent-teachers meetings. I wanted to give her the life I never had, being involved in extra curriculum activities such as swimming, dancing, or playing the violin.
I vividly remember having a conversation over breakfast with my husband on our little deck of our small apartment in New York. It was a sunny spring morning, our daughter was in school and we both happened to be off from work. We began to role play and my husband said to me "what time should we check in on the employees" hhahahaha
I wanted that life of freedom and the thought of it never left my mind. The solution was becoming an entrepreneur. I had no idea where to begin or what, to begin with.
So I did what I knew best. I prayed for a financial breakthrough.
Then finally my prayers were answered in a unique way. I noticed my friends and family complimented me on my taste of fashion and my husband threatened to sell all my fancy jewelry if I don't sell them myself.
So...I began. My first small business birthed from my very own home.
My humble beginnings.
I was an entrepreneur, I was in business. I started selling fashion jewelry and soon expanded to winter gears, handbags and clothing. In less than a year I had a fully stocked mobile boutique. Then I opened a storefront. I felt so accomplished.
I was busier than a bee! It didn't take long for me to realize I was a slave to my business. Although I was generating income, I did not have the freedom I signed up for to spend quality time with my daughter.
three years later, the birth of my son encouraged me to start a new journey.
I went back to the drawing board. I discovered the power of social media and e-commerce and so I dived into the new age of having a successful e-commerce business. I made many mistakes along the way, lost a lot of money and invested endless hours just trying to figure things out on my own.
It took me years to finally put the pieces of the puzzle together. I finally developed a complete system that would yield the results I needed to move my business into a new dimension. This system highlighted the most important strategies to grow my business, then finally automating my entire business so that I could enjoy the freedom I desired.
I started testing my system with multiple niches and different industries by teaching other moms like myself, through my online training course. The amazing results gave birth to my new business Breakthrough to Entrepreneur (BTE) Academy. It is because of these results why you are here today.
Not just to read my story but seeking a breakthrough for your business.
You are in a good place and in great company. The resources provided here, I wish I had someone to provide them to me 8 years ago. My one entrepreneurial advice is to JUST START. Whether you are new to the internet world, a stay at home mom, or just looking for multiple streams of income, my training program will meet you where you are.
Quit trying to figure things out on your own, wasting money, and time and getting headaches from all the information overload out there (like I did). All you need is a proven system and great support. Check out my courses here.
