Asking for help and leaning on your community can be intimidating, especially when you’re an entrepreneur. So this week in our Black Women in Business Series, we're focusing on what it looks like to make big career changes, bring physical products into the world, and bootstrap a startup.
In this episode, I’m joined by my friend, Anicia Anya. She is the founder, chef, and CEO of Kid’s Table, New York City's only meal delivery service for kids which she launched in 2021. Her mission is to help parents create adventurous and confident eaters in a way that’s accessible and convenient.
Join in as we discuss Anicia’s unique and remarkable journey from the tech industry, to nannying, to private chef, to entrepreneur. Her inclination to lean on her community and ask for help are as inspiring as her passion for her business.
