Former homeless prostitute, drug addict, high school dropout, and teenage mother to college educated author, speaker, fitness expert, life coach, and award winning filmmaker. It wasn't luck or being in the right place at the right time that allowed Jillian Bullock to transform her life from a Victim to a Victor. It was blood, sweat, and a whole lot of tears and putting in the work necessary that has made her the successful businesswoman she is today.
Jillian Bullock is an example of someone who was drowning in emotional and physical pain after hitting rock bottom. She grew up with her African-American mother and white stepfather, who was a member of the Italian Mafia. Jillian saw her first Mob hit when she was nine. At age 10, she was raped by a family friend. After telling no one other than her stepfather, the rapist was found dead the next morning. By age 15, Jillian found herself homeless, addicted to crack cocaine, and selling her body to survive. When she became pregnant, Jillian knew she had to change her life. She held on to what she called her “fighting spirit,” and started the long, hard road to success.
Jillian eventually got off the streets and kicked drugs. Still, she often wondered could she rise beyond a statistic – a black, teenage mother, who was on welfare, and a high school dropout.
With no support, Jillian fought back to overcome homelessness, drug addiction, criminal activity, and prostitution. She was committed to doing what was necessary to provide a better life for herself and the baby she had at age 16.
