Greetings! My name is Shirley Solomon Founder/Owner of Blessed Hands Home Care. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, but my parents are originally from Haiti. Growing up, both of my grandmothers helped raise me. With my struggles in school, I was taught to never give up. After graduating from high school, I attended Long Island University to pursue nursing; however, that didn't work out, so I dropped out of college and entered into trade school where I ultimately received my diploma as a licensed medical assistant in Brooklyn, NY.
Despite receiving my diploma, I tried for the second time to pursue my Nursing Degree—yet, I still struggled. Meanwhile, I landed a position with American Airlines as a ticket agent, but my heart was still in the healthcare field. Sadly, Sept 11, 2001,tragically struck our U.S. soil. I decided to leave the company on Sept 26, 2001. After that, I found a job in a doctor's office. In Jan. 2004, I was laid off and suffered a miscarriage, but GOD always has a plan! First, I accepted Christ on Easter day, then my fiancé and I got married on June 5, 2004. Then we moved to Hampton, GA, in 2004.
Why did I decide to become an entrepreneur during my time in Georgia? I had been working a string of low-paying jobs during this time. Then in 2010, I wrote down on a piece of paper, my dream of having a homecare business along with a number of Bible verses. But GOD! While I was cleaning my house in Dec. 2016, I stumbled upon the paper. I knew God was telling me to step out on faith. My dreams came true in Jan. 2017 by God’s Grace and I opened my business, Blessed Hands Home Care
I've met lots of great entrepreneurs; I have also had mentors helping me along the way with my business and awesome support from Homecare Facebook groups. So far what I've learned from failure is to never stop, keep moving. Anyone who has experienced struggle, or is still struggling, never give up! Connect with other with people and open your mind to accept constructive criticism. Don’t be afraid to learn and GROW!
