Sarai Antoine, also known as Sarai The MC, is one of our youngest members at 20 years old! She is the Radio Host of her own show on The Wire 98.5, Entrepreneur, and a proud “Haitianista”! Sarai is also MC to one of the largest media outlets for the Haitian-American Community, L’Union Suite. We caught up with her to ask her a few questions about her journey as a CEO Chick, here is what she had to say…
Tell us how you got into entrepreneurship?
I first got into entrepreneurship after the passing of my mother. I remember after the funeral everyone asked me “Sarai what are you going to do now”, and quite frankly I didn’t know in that moment, but I knew I had to think of something and fast. I embarked on something that changed my life forever that allowed me to bring in cash flow, a financial market known as Forex. At first, I was hesitant but I then began to see finances I had never seen before. I went from making $400 biweekly to averaging $4500 weekly. I then launched my show “The Sarai Antoine Show” on 98.5 The Wire and in that same year I started my non-profit Girls Talk 101 Inc. and ventured into RealEstate Investing.
What’s one of the greatest accomplishments you have achieved in your business?
The greatest accomplishment I have achieved in my business, is gaining the consistent support of my listeners. Whether it is running advertisements on my show, gaining sponsorship, or even a simple “Sarai you’re doing a good job”, it all goes along way to support me. I remember when I first launched my show, I was very hesitant on whether people would even tune in, but every week I had an increase in listeners. Even just this past month I went from working solo to bringing on a board of advisors and a content manager.
Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years?
In five years, I see my show being a household name in the community, my non-profit being international, and having a mentorship class for young women in middle school and high school. I also see myself as a multi-millionaire with over 60 properties under my belt and a being a pillar in my community.
What advice would you give other young aspiring entrepreneurs looking to start a business?
The advice I would give young entrepreneurs is to never feel like your too young to do something great. Never allow your circumstances to dictate your future. In a world filled of innovators and creatives your idea is just as worthy as anyone else’s idea and your voice is just as powerful. Walk in your purpose and always put God first because with Him anything is possible
