Show Notes

 Keisha Stubbs is a woman who hit her personal rock bottom at an early age. There she found a ladder. She ended a tumultuous high school career with a baby bump and fought her way to the graduation stage with a 4-month-old baby on her hip. Following graduation Keisha and her boyfriend got their own place and raised their son together. Their bliss would prove to be short lived. By the time Keisha was 23 her boyfriend was murdered and she became a single mother with no idea how to manage on her own. The next year she lost the apartment, her car and her job. Admittedly, she spent quite a while in a state of depression doing absolutely nothing to help herself. One day as if a switch was flipped, she got up and decided to become more. More for herself and more for her son. On a whim, she took on a job as a car saleswoman and seemingly found her niche. She climbed the ladder from newbie, to salesperson of the year, to sales manager in an industry that did not regularly promote people of her gender or shade. The lifestyle she came to afford for herself and her son was one she never imagined. However, Keisha knew there were others like her. People who had been dealt a bad hand and could not quite find their way out of a terrible situation. She felt a tug leading her from personal upliftment to uplifting those around her. She started a non-profit geared toward uplifting and providing basic needs for the children in her community, speaks in public forums to inspire adults that their miseries are actually building blocks for their greatness and has authored a book detailing her journey and providing a road map for salespeople and overcomers alike.

 Her book entitled "Close or be Closed"  is an insider look at automotive sales and the personal journey of a teen mother who used the industry to change her and her child’s life. Each chapter begins with sales strategies, while seamlessly incorporating Keisha’s tumultuous journey from poverty stricken to earning more than she ever imagined. She aims to inspire others that their current situation looks nothing like their final destination if they keep pressing forward. She hones in on the fact that every part of your journey is designed for the greater you. The good, the bad, the miserable are all working for your good.
