There are many people who, once given the chance, would seek a better life outside of Guyana. But there are those who even after achieving that, eventually come to the realisation that there is really no place like home.
“I would have worked in so many different industries…I’ve worked at BBDO, which is one of the largest advertising companies in the US; I worked as a paralegal, an accountant, a consultant at the Morgan Stanley Investment Bank, and I even worked at the Kings County Hospital in child psychiatry. I gained an array of knowledge within different industries,” Allison shared.
Although her ultimate goal was to eventually return to Guyana and utilise her acquired knowledge and work expertise within her parents’ businesses, Allison recalled that there came a time when her parents simply went out of business.
Despite being still very engaged in corporate America, Allison felt incapable of shaking the desire to be an entrepreneur. She soon after secured yet another niche market, which again embraced her passion to provide consumers with high quality fish products from Guyana. Instead of frozen fish, it was smoked fish this time, and that too took the target market by storm.
