In July 2019, Kim Eboreime marked the fifth anniversary of her business which was launched on July 23, 2014.
According to her, she started business when that of her competitors were at their peak.
That, however, did little to overcome her desire to succeed as it rather helped her focus her energy on providing excellent customer service.
This, per a report by blackenterprise.com became the strategic tool that helped her business attract a large number of regular customers.
In the words of a customer, Donna Slawson, "the spirit is so high here. It’s the best place to come. They have great employees. They’re all friendly. We love each other here. I feel like I’m part of the family.”
Even though there are over 8,500 7-Eleven franchise stores across the United States, Eboreime succeeded in becoming the first Black woman to start one in her area.
Marking the store’s fifth anniversary, she threw a party at the store and consequently gave away lots of gifts.
In other news, Shelia Ruffin lived most of her childhood on the eastern shore of Virginia and loved the boats that sailed on the waters.
Thanks to her grandfather, who was an avid boater, she drew closer to the vessels and spent her free time learning how to maneuver them.
She later attended law school but failed the bar exam and this led her to secure a job on the island of St. Thomas where she decided to practice law.
Per a report by blackenterprise.com, she decided to become a certified travel associate but soon yearned to do more.
She, therefore, started her own yacht company after realizing that she could not find Blacks in the industry. From that point onwards, Soca Caribbean Yacht Charters (SCYC) was born.
