What's your business, and who are your customers?

I own a personal development company that focuses on life and relationship coaching for successful women.

Tell us about yourself

I’m a sexual abuse survivor and advocate for women’s emotional wellness. I’m passionate about teaching women to heal from toxic relationships and release relationship trauma. Overcoming my own traumatic experiences fuels me to share this magical work with other women.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Sustaining a multi-six-figure business that prioritizes people over profit and centers on black women.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The constant need to learn new skills and figure out how to stay profitable with the ever-changing social marketing climate.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Do something you’ll love doing even on days you don’t feel like working.
  2. Don’t follow trends! Stay true to yourself and your reason for starting.
  3. Hire help! Bring in experts who can help you in the areas you are not good at.
