After growing up on welfare and living in one of Miami’s poorest neighborhoods, entrepreneur Alfred Nickson was determined to become financially free so that he could retire his mom. He started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 19 and became a millionaire by age 25. Now, Nickson spends most of his time coaching and empowering others in the financial literacy space.
“Humble beginnings drove me to do something different,” Nickson shared during an interview with Black Enterprise. “That’s what fueled me to become successful. I had to break the chains of poverty. I always knew I wanted to become successful but just didn’t know what it was going to be.”
