Leaving a corporate job to pursue entrepreneurship can be difficult, but when you have the mindset like Kaleef Williams, anything is possible.
Born in Rochester, Kaleef Williams, has had the mindset of an entrepreneur from a very young age. Growing up in a single parent household, Kaleef studied hard and focused on taking control of his life and his career. As a child, he saw his mother worked tirelessly to provide for their family. He recalls his mother’s main advice always being:
“I don’t want you to have to work like I do, physically, I want you to make your living using your brain,”. At the time, a young Kaleef did not understand the meaning behind her wise words, but he made sure to listen.
Kaleef obtained his degree in biology from the illustrious Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio, but like most graduates, it never became useful. His shift into entrepreneurship came when he began working for a large rental company. It was during his time working there that he discovered his passion for entrepreneurship. He was intrigued by the possibility of becoming his own boss, so he decided to take control of his life.
After working long, tireless hours, and being separated from his family, Kaleef Williams knew something had to change.
“I always had a burning desire and notion that there was more for me in the world. Two weeks later I resigned, not knowing what was next but with my mother’s saying in the back of my mind“ I don’t want you to have to work like I do physically, I want you to make your living using your brain” letting me know that I would figure it out,” recalls Kaleef.
Kaleef knew that owning your own business was like a vehicle that could provide the type of freedom and wealth that had always been eluding him. With the burning desire for more, he set out to build a business that could reward him in all ways possible. This is what led Kaleef into the credit restoration and consultation business. When looking to solve the problem of the masses, credit is a problem that 60+ million americans share, so he decided to go full steam ahead to help everyone of them.
From a very young age, Kaleef saw how having challenged credit could directly impact one’s life. From being declined a condo, credit cards, and ridiculously high insurance rates, he wanted to give others the information that he lacked and give them the power to control their financial destiny to leverage their credit and in turn build wealth.
Kaleef prides himself on providing 100% customer satisfaction. He goes a step further, making sure all his clients have his personal number. Being a problem solver by nature and education, he strives to give an amazing experience so that clients don’t just enroll, they keep the service long term and bring in more customers.
“You must first ASSUME you are the person you set out to be already, then DO the activity that a person in your capacity would do. You have to first see and believe in yourself as the person you’re yearning to be or it will all be for nothing. Forces of the universe will try to deter you from the end goal, so it’s imperative to continually develop your mindset,” stresses Kaleef.
For Kaleef Williams, anything is possible, and after leaving his corporate job of five years, he hasn’t looked back since. His next projects will be to expand his current businesses and diversify his investment portfolio so he can continue building his legacy for his family. He plans to bring aboard hungry, like minded partners that share the vision of spreading the knowledge of financial literacy. Kaleef wants to continue helping others achieve their financial dreams, which has been the end goal from the start.
