Sharon Steele, a lady who has been in very depressing situations in life and was once in prison has risen to become a topnotch entrepreneur.

According to Blacknews.com, Steele, who originally comes from Farmington Hills, Michigan and still resides in the same locality, has had challenging moments since childhood.

Early in her life, she had to assume the responsibility of taking charge of her life and providing for her own needs. As though that was not enough, she was soon a mother of children and had to take care of them as a single mother.

It is thinkable that Sharon Steele lived in a hostile environment with her children as one of Sharon's children survived five different counts of gunshots.

Things were so bad that the brilliant young lady attempted to take her own life at a point because she had suffered enough of abuses and even faced police conviction.

Reports indicate that she just decided to hand over her battles to God and keep forging on in life. Life started to turn around for Sharon Steele. She decided to put her life into meaningful use and got the idea of helping struggling businesses gain the exposure they needed.
