Community Highlights: Meet LeeAndre Ratliff of Boost 360 Marketing and Consulting

Today we’d like to introduce you to LeeAndre Ratliff.

Hi LeeAndre, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
As a little boy, I knew that I could achieve anything! Growing up, my mother instilled in me the importance of honesty, morality, integrity and excellence and I carried her teachings with me throughout my teenage and adult life! My introduction to business ownership began when I was 16 years old. I attended a Career and Vocational High School called Clyde C. Miller Career Academy in the city of St. Louis. I succeeded in my studies, but I knew that I didn’t want to go to college to work for someone else for the rest of my life! So, I had the opportunity for an internship in High School, and I chose to intern at a small, black-owned real estate company. It was that experience that shaped my mind to believe that success in business, especially as a Black Man, was most definitely attainable. From there, I worked in Customer Service, Sales and Marketing and became a leader and high earner in my field, all while operating a small home-based business. Eventually, I decided that I no longer wanted to exchange my time for money, so I walked away from Corporate America and went into business full time for myself. It has been one of the most rewarding decisions.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Of course and as to be expected, the road hasn’t been as smooth. I’ve had some bumps and hurdles to get over; but I WAS ABLE to get over them. One of the biggest struggles in business has been finding and retaining great employees, especially in this climate.
