In this episode, we’re talking to Kharmika Alston, a Former US diplomat who made a major career pivot into Real Estate.
Kharmika is the founder of Live, Love Durham, a real estate brokerage which believes in transforming our community and creating new cycles of generational wealth.
Before she made the Pivot, Kharmika’s job was working as a US diplomat across the world, including Mexico and Amsterdam. Of course, as a Young Black Woman in this field, there were plenty of difficulties dealing with being treated a certain way within the organization, and promoting policies that she didn’t necessarily agree with.
Right before her last appointment, she realized she couldn’t do it anymore. So she packed her bags, moved back to North Carolina, and began to figure out her next step.
She’s always wanted to invest and get serious about wealth generation, and she realized that housing prices in Durham NC were increasing. She wanted something that would give her the entrepreneurial aspect while being able to invest and help build generational wealth within her community.
It wasn’t easy. It was a lot of work, but she made it happen. You’ll hear Kharmika give the details on how to make it happen for yourself.
