Jane Michael Ekanem Announces Launch Of New Book On Her Birthday

Fashion stylist and entrepreneur Jane Michael Ekanem turned a year older today To mark her birthday in a very memorable way, the fashionista announced the launch of her new book on her Instagram page.

The tell-all book, which took her two years to write, has her talking about her struggle to gain ground with her business, surviving depression and borderline bankruptcy.

“Today is such a good day to be older, it is a bright beautiful day and I stayed up late watching the clock chime; as excited as a child again to have a birthday.”

“The past year for me has been such a revealing one, it has revealed the shortcomings I took too long to admit, and the strengths I never knew were there. I started my design brand during the recession and despite the pitfalls, it has stood and surpassed expectations, who would have thought? Most business[es] fail in the first year they said, drowning in overhead expenses and struggling to gain ground and a client base; I had all those challenges and more, yet I survived.”

“I survived depression and borderline bankruptcy, found a way to smile and show up every time. I stood tall till I got into this new year. Wow, this is the first day of another new year for me, there is so much to come but I am most excited about my book coming out really soon.”

“My book took two years to write, and I really had a lot to say. A lot more growth happened in those two years and it is for me more than a compilation of experiences and juicy stories to read, it is a testament that anyone can have the life they believe they deserve regardless of what hand life deals them.”

“#Aprilthe29th is a special day and I can’t wait to share what it is about with you all. Happy birthday to me.”
