Educator and Founder Koereyelle DuBose is the creator of WERK University which is a financial coaching business that teaches women how to get paid and exceed their money making goals. She went from teaching grade school to becoming a serial entrepreneur through personal branding.
The young entrepreneur started her first international brand in 2012 called “The Single Wives Club.” The women empowerment brand connected single women and happy wives in hopes of helping them prepare for marriage. From 2013-2019 she started hosting a women’s empowerment weekend in Atlanta called WERK, Pray, Slay. By 2015 she ran an annual travel-based empowerment brand (Busy at the Beach) that took women from around the country to different beaches around the world until she founded WERK University last winter.
“I realized that women don’t need any more empowerment, they need to know how to get paid.”
Though the company is relatively new, they welcomed 415 plus women during their first 10 day enrollment and currently have over 800 students. In the first 2 months of 2020, the WERK U program assisted their students in making over $120k. This month alone, one of their students earned a $45k contract for 6 weeks of work through one of the company’s resources.
Growing up in the suburbs of college to two marine parents built her work ethic. Her obsessions as a child were serving people and money so it was only right she went the entrepreneurial route. DuBose landed her first job working at McDonald’s at the age of 14 and has been working non-stop ever since.
“My biggest challenge was believing in myself long enough to build something outside the box that I once believed I was stuck in,” she explained. “I had so many people around me to tell me that the classroom was the ‘safe’ place to stay, but I managed to make my own way.” To date, she’s turned her $32k teaching salary into a multi-six figure brand.
