By Friday Girl on September 16, 2011 in Shoe Queen
As President of Dax Enterprises, Inc., a Professional Resources Solutions business handling administrative needs for a variety of companies, and Vice President of Island Piling, Inc., a Specialty Contracting Construction Company in Naples, Florida, Kena Yoke spends her days solving issues and assisting in the management and operation of projects for her partner and clients. Kena’s goal is to assist her clients in maintaining a viable and profitable business in today’s trying market, utilizing the latest in technology, social media and marketing. Kena’s legacy is to launch a business model that will allow the “unemployable” to obtain work and training, while being compensated and developing skills and self value. The first “business” that will launch this model will be a shoe store, where her passion for giving back will be aligned with her passion and belief in the power of shoes. Kena believes a hand up is more valuable than a hand out.
