See How Marsha Duke Empowers Collective Business Success With The B.E.S.T. Networking Group

Southeast Queens Based Networking Group Looks To
Expand The Net Worth Of Area Entrepreneurs

By Kamau Austin


Marsha Duke, once a 20 year resident of the Rosedale, section of Southeast Queens, New York, does a deep reflection on her mom a pioneering women entrepreneur. She feels her mom's industrious actions coming from Trinidad & Tobago, and establishing a number of beauty salons imbued her with the entrepreneurial desire she has in her soul.

Her mom started off as a nanny, she worked hard putting herself through cosmetology school and became a talented hair stylist, later on owning her own salon - which grew to a few. Ms. Duke shares “I know that seeing her work hard, manage her own time and building a business subconsciously penetrated my brain as a child, it left an impression on me that I was not aware of until my own desire to do the same manifested itself in me.”

Marsha goes on to embellish her inner reflection “That burning desire to work hard for myself, manage my own time and be my own boss has been within me for years now.” Very similar to her mom, Duke worked herself upward in life. She moved forward as a paralegal who worked on the legal matters for real estate deals, to handling her own home buying process, and to now making a living as a real estate salesperson. Marsha Duke states “she just loves the process” when it comes to acquiring real estate.
