mr. Bake Kareem Queeman on telling your product story

Opinions of contributing entrepreneurs are their own.

Mr Bake Kareem Queeman has been baking since he was eight years old and has gained fame from the oven to the camera. Now he has become a rising voice advocating for the LGBTQ+ community.

Kareem Queman found his purpose by answering a difficult question: “If I left this earth tomorrow, would I be happy with the life I’ve lived?”

After acknowledging that his answer to the above question was “no,” Queeman took action to change the story and became a strong advocate for the “unseen” LGBTQ+ community.

“I really started to change with that and started speaking out more about that change, about going to therapy. And then I found that passion,” says Kareem Queman Unpleasant Restaurant influencers presenter Shawn Walchef from CaliBBQ Media.

One of the most important qualities an must possess is courage. Kareem Queeman didn’t always have that in abundance.

After meeting a fellow black who made wine, Queeman realized the importance of telling his story through the media, which helped him progress and become the powerful voice he is today.

“He said they’ll get into your story more than your product. And I was on that for a while,” Queeman says of the encounter. “And then it hit me six or seven months later.”

Running a business is no easy task and there will be plenty of obstacles to overcome, and Queeman has endured quite a bit of adversity. But he has done the necessary work internally to persevere and advises other entrepreneurs to do the same.

“When you face another setback or when you face another opportunity or when you want to go for something and you start doubting yourself, I want everyone to remind themselves: How did they get where they are today?” asks Queeman. “Don’t forget your strength.”

Kareem Queeman’s story is inspiring. His journey to find and purposefully pursue his passion to become a voice for the LGBTQ+ community is one that reminds us that we have the power to achieve our dreams and find our own voice as well.
