Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that 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 reports, 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.
