Inspirational Feature is a platform founded by KADOKÉLÉ, Creative Designer, Marie-France M Noel @artfullyfrance. She has learned so much from other entrepreneurs and felt compelled to create a bi-monthly feature where she interviews other entrepreneurs to highlight their entrepreneurial journey in hope of forging connections and inspiring others.
Below are empowering features chronicling the first feature to the most recent. We hope that they empower you to start whatever you've been putting off today, because you are capable of achieving great things!
