Throughout February we’re highlighting four African American owners that have made history in their markets and are doing incredible things.

In this episode, we explore the journey of William and Vaudrien in the child care industry, delving into the challenges and triumphs that led them to establish Ruby’s Academy. Named after Vaudrien’s grandmother, Ruby, who ran a one-room schoolhouse, with an extraordinary legacy. Listen as we discuss their unique approach to honoring family members by naming classrooms after those with exceptional character. 

William and Vaudrien open up about their successful partnership, sharing valuable insights into the strategies that have fueled their growth. They highlight how CCGU coaching showed them the importance of defining “lanes” and sticking to them. Discover the transformative lessons they brought back from the CCG Leverage conference in Jamaica, gaining a fresh perspective on business and entrepreneurship.
