Clara Villarosa

In today’s troubled economy, more and more people are finding themselves out of work and not knowing where to turn. Twenty years ago, Clara Villarosa was one of those people. At 52 years old, after years of climbing the corporate ladder, the business maven found herself out a job. Desperate to make a living, Villarosa thought of the one thing she could do to dust herself off—she launched the groundbreaking The Hue-Man Experience, the largest African-American bookstore. In her new book, DOWN TO BUSINESS: The First 10 Steps for Entrepreneurship for Women she teaches others how they can become successful entrepreneurs by providing a 10-step blueprint for starting their own businesses.
