It’s Your Business—Run It!: Eunice Nuekie Cofie
Meet Eunice Nuekie Cofie. She’s the chief scientific officer of her own line of products focused on ethnic skin and hair. Many things inspired Eunice to start her company—a passion for science and a need for makeup and hair products she would want to use but just couldn’t find in stores.
Eunice is many things—an inventor, a molecular biologist, a former Miss Black Florida USA, and now a CEO. “To start your own business—it takes a lot of faith to do that,” she says.
It might take a little bit of faith, but it only takes one inspiration to start a company. “Businesses are set up to meet needs,” Eunice says. “Start looking around you at potential problems—it could be your very own problem that you solve—and you could help others in the same situation.”
