Some say that success knows no color — but history has shown that for many, if you're Black, you better be prepared to work twice as hard to achieve and progress professionally.

Written by entrepreneurial husband and wife Raphael and Opeyemi Sofoluke, Twice As Hard is an exploration of Black identity in the working world and a blueprint for success. Readers will learn how to be productive, find purpose and ultimately succeed in business despite the racial stereotypes and other obstacles limiting opportunity for Black professional progress.

Twice as Hard features 40+ interviews with Black business leaders, entrepreneurs, and creatives, including Mathew Knowles (Record Producer, Talent Manager, and Businessman), Angelica Nwandu (Founder, The Shade Room), and Dr. Wayne Frederick (President, Howard University, Scholar, and Surgeon). Raphael, Opeyemi, and their network of contributors have experienced first-hand what it is like to be Black in the working world, and the adversities and prejudices that many can be faced with. However, they also know how to take those struggles and turn it into success.

Whether you are a member of the Black community starting out or working in the corporate world, or an ally looking for practical and honest advice, this book will empower, inspire, and educate.
