Sixteen-year old Cesali Murray is a bright light in a tough place to grow up.
As fortune would have it, Pristine met Cireeleda Boswell, the founder of Early Entrepreneur Success System (EESS), at a business networking event, and they became friends. Cireeleda saw a lot of herself in little Cesali – a middle kid in a single parent family, with a strong work ethic and the desire to look after herself and her family. They formed a close mentoring relationship, and over the years Cireeleda introduced Cesali to business principles such as goal setting, fiscal responsibility, and tools to promote a professional image such as business cards, invoices and marketing collateral. Cesali worked hard babysitting her younger brother and sister, doing yard work for neighbors and putting in a lot of long hours with Cireeleda in her catering business. She enjoyed learning entrepreneurial skills from Cireeleda, and eventually Cesali asked when “Miss Ciree” was going to hurry up and make EESS a reality so that any kid could use the system to build their own business.
This was the spark that lit the fire under Cireeleda (Ciree for short) to use her experience as a parent and mentor to finish creating the Early Entrepreneur Success System. EESS is designed to teach the ABC’s of Entrepreneurship and help children understand business and success principals from an early age. The system was created over many nights while her family slept, and Cireeleda hopes to spread this teaching beyond her personal network to inspire, guide and empower as many children as possible. Launched in early 2009, the affordable, easy to use and personalized application is available on line at www.myEESS.com, so any child can become an early entrepreneur.
Cesali and her mom and eager to tell their story in order to help other children and families. Ciree is passionate about Cesali's success with the Early Entrepreneur Success System and would love to speak about how other kids and families can get involved, and her long-term vision for how EESS can instill security and work ethic in America's youth.
