Geneva Farrow, August Rising Star

Full Name: Geneva Farrow

Position: Executive Director and Founder

Year Founded: 2007



Tell us about yourself and your business: I was a young mother and because of the struggles I faced I was compelled to start this organization to help young mothers build a network of support that they might not otherwise have.  The ultimate goal being they finish their high school and college education. 

 

What inspired you to start a business? My struggles as a young mother were my inspiration for A Young Mother's D.R.E.A.M.

Share one business goal: My goal is to have A Young Mother's D.R.E.A.M. be an international organization that helps young mothers worldwide

What would you say contributes to your success? I am unwilling to see boundaries or limitations.  My brain will not accept that line of thinking.  Any and Everything is Possible!

How do you feel about partnerships? I think partnerships are great if they are strategic and align with the mission for both organizations. It can’t be lopsided. 

Have you ever formed any partnerships? Explain. Yes, I've worked with other organizations to provide services for the young women we mentor. 

What advice would you give an aspiring entrepreneur? They need to be careful who they let in their circle of influence.  Having the wrong people in your circle can be detrimental to your dream. 

What should we expect new and exciting from you in the next 12 months? A Young Mother's D.R.E.A.M. has a book that will be hitting shelves within the next 6 months, 

Anything else you want to mention about your business? We are always looking for mentors and volunteers.  If you are interested in either mentoring or volunteering please send an email to info@youngmothersdream.org or apply on-line at www.youngmothersdream.org
