Show Notes


In this episode of Black Businesses Matter, I  talk with the founder, Cecelia Harrison who was able to leverage her housing choice voucher from the Chicago Housing Authority(CHA)  to build a successful STEM business-, a medical billing company.  Her company helps doctors to get paid expeditiously by providers.    She shares her story of being a Registered Health Information Administrator for 20 years and how she launched her company after helping one doctor’s office receive half a million.

Cecelia also shares how she received a $40K grant from Chicago Trend to expand her business.   She also describes how she purchased a commercial property from the Chicago Land Bank. 

In this season of discussing black wealth,  Cecelia shares her perspective of wealth as a mother who was raised by her dad.   She shares how she watched her dad work a  9 to 5  with side hustles which propelled her to create a STEM business that is her 9 to 5.   She adds how she is building a co-working space for the STEM community in a marginalized community in Chicago.  

Cecelia shouts out valuable resources that have contributed to her success.   Cecelia’s story of resilience is sure to inspire you.
