Women of the Present: Ming Lee
When you think of Hair, Snobs, Atlanta, Girl Bosses, you GOTTA think of Ming Lee!
If you've been under a social media rock, and you don't have Instagram, Twitter or the internet let me let you know a little about Ming Lee.
She is the epitome of MAKING a way and using what you have now to get where you WANT to go. She in fact can always be heard saying, 'Start where you are right now', to encourage others to get up and get out and get what you deserve.
Who: Ming Lee
How: She started with $500 and a dream. After graduating from Aveda hair school and being rejected by 42 hair salons she finally received her long awaited opportunity and she ran with it. She went from using a side hustle to help her make ends meet to owning a millionaire dollar company that is still growing.
