More About the Author

Chitoka Webb was born on December 18,1974. Webb is an entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker from Nashville, Tennessee. Her life and business motto ,as taught by her mother, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" has guided her success.

Raised by her single mother, Webb grew up in the Preston Taylor housing projects, landed her first job in a grocery store at only 13 years old. When a senior in High School, she was told by school authorities she couldn't graduate with her class just a week before the ceremony due to being one point short in her chemistry class. Now, in her mid-30s, Webb owns several businesses--that she founded.

Through her impressive business growth, Webb suffered blindness for six months as a result of Behcet's disease. High doses of Steroidal eye injections and medications corrected her failed eye sight. The Behcet's diagnosis led Webb to write her memoir, Something Inside of Me (Greenleaf Book Group, July 1, 2011).

Format: Paperback
Something Inside of Me is a book you can't put down. It is written with lightness and humor as it speaks of heavy burdens and difficult challenges - challenges that many readers can identify with and challenges that would make many quit in despair. Chitoka grew up in poverty, living in the projects in Nashville but she had a dream of owning her own business. Despite the obstacles, she became a successful entrepreneur who owns and operates two barbershops and two health care agencies for the mentally challenged. She seems to personify the saying, "What doesn't kill me only makes me stronger."

While it is not unusual for a woman to become a successful business woman, what IS unusual is the way she meets the obstacles along her journey to success and the spirit that compels her to overcome them and to continue to fight for her dream. Her story is about attitude, determination, humor and "Something" within her that made all the difference...

I highly recommend this book.

I was initially drawn to this book by the title alone. I had seen a review for it, and I thought I would check it out. Lately, my family has been going through a lot of garbage, and I have felt sometimes that I was in the pit of hell. Yes, even as a committed Christian, you can have a very rough road. In fact, probably the more committed you are, the more the enemy attacks!

I began reading this book, and I was instantly drawn to Chitoka's easy-to-read style. In this book, she shared many personal stories that stretched all the way back into her childhood through the present day. She talked about her schooling, her aspirations, her dreams, and her visions. If there ever was a type A personality, I think Chitoka embodies it! And if there ever was a woman who refused to give up, it was Chitoka!

When she shared about her childhood stories of how she never seemed to fit in (she was a black who didn't talk and act like her other black friends), I could relate. Yes, I am a white woman, but when I was growing up, I never fit in. I was often a loner. I think because like Chitoka, I too knew I wanted to do great things. I was amazed at how she overcame her early schooling issues. I never had to overcome that. Instead, I had to overcome the strange feelings I had a couple years ago when I (the straight A student) had to sub for a guy who graduated from high school the same year I did (and he was just an average student). Talk about feeling strange. I think Chitoka proves in her book that grades are not everything.

As I read about the businesses she began, I was absolutely enthralled! I couldn't get over the ambition this young woman had. If someone said she couldn't do it, she did it. (Okay, that describes me pretty well too, but I was never as ambitious as Chitoka.

When it comes to facing challenges and obstacles whether in our personal lives or in business it always feels better to have an example of someone who has been where we are and has survived, moving forward. That is what we find in SOMETHING INSIDE OF ME by author and businesswoman Chitoka Webb.

No matter what your age or your profession I think her example and her path is one that we can all look at, relate to and learn from. Webb is an individual who has been to what some might look at as the lowest of the low points and pulled herself up to a point where she is able to see the payoff of her hard work. What is most amazing about her is how she has been able to accomplish things in her life in spite of the challenges she has faced. During this journey she still finds the opportunity to allow us to benefit from what she has experienced. "I believe we all want to make a difference," she writes. "I've heard it said that 'To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.'" This is something that she got to see demonstrated in her own life as many of us have as well.

Every now and then we just need to be reminded of that "something inside" of us that makes us unique and therefore worthy. As Chitoka's (and my) mentor Oprah Winfrey states: 'I'm easy to look at but so hard to see.' This is something that we have may have felt at sometime, but Chitoka helps us to see that the good that we do causes us to be seen.

This is a book that men and women can rally around and genuinely get something from. We all have a gift to give the world. After all that "something inside" you that you might feel like is insignificant is waiting to be seen.

Format: Paperback
Chitoka Webb's memoir tells the incredible story of how she rose from poverty to become a powerful businesswoman. She grew up in the projects of Nashville and faced hurdles by being African-American and a woman. Early on, Chitoka knew she was different. She learned to have a certain belief in herself - something inside of her -- that has been good for her through the years.

She became a master barber and also opened up two barbershops and three health-care agencies, all before the age of thirty. She was doing exceptionally well when a devastating illness threatened everything - her work, her sight, and even her life.

How did Chitoka Webb, who almost didn't graduate from high school, find the courage to fight poverty, drug addiction, racism, sexism, a somewhat obsessive-compulsive nature, and the agonizingly painful illness that left her blind and threatened her life? She says:

"Choices are a form of power when you are faced with a situation that offers you no options. You don't always have control of your options, but you always have control of your choices."

I think this book and Chitoka are truly inspirational! It is a short book, but very empowering. Chitoka believes in doing everything with "excellence." This book should be required reading for everyone -- especially all young people.
