• Have you struggled for years to transform your product idea into a lucrative shopping experience with a devoted customer following, but have no clue how to get started?
  • Do you lie awake at night crippled by fear of failure and uncertainty, absolutely terrified of making huge mistakes and screwing up your store long before you ever get to Grand Opening Day?
  • Do you secretly resent watching other less-talented people winning at what you'd love to be doing but you’re stuck in a trap of fear of failure and the unknown?
  • Are you desperate to reclaim control of your life so you won’t miss out on anymore precious family moments because your job and your boss are calling all the shots?
  • Do you dread dragging yourself into work every morning because you're just there for a paycheck but there's something else more fulfilling and exciting that you’d rather be doing?
  • Are you sick and tired of pouring blood, sweat, and tears into a dead-end job you hate, making somebody else rich while your dreams are dying on the vine?
  • Are you haunted by the fear that by now you’ve squandered so much precious time and money on bad business advice and guesswork that it might already be too late, that you're this close to giving up on opening your boutique altogether?

Women of color launch 89% of the new businesses started in the U.S. daily.

That's 1,625 new businesses started every day. Think about that for a second.


Black and brown women who are hungry for opportunity, ready to lean in to build their own dreams, and sick of making somebody else rich are jumping out there and doing their own thing.

Consulting. Recruiting. Painting. Styling. Catering. Creating. Planning. Training. Inspiring. Manufacturing. Designing. Sewing. Cooking. Building. Communicating. Whatever she wants.

Most of them would love to be 100% self-employed doing what they love, but family, finances, frustration over past failures, and/or fear of the unknown hold them back.

A woman in this situation has watched helplessly as her business aspirations have been reduced to a random side gig or hobby relegated to nights and weekends when she can fit it in.

And that's not enough for her.


She spends a lot of time fantasizing about what it'd be like to stroll into the corner office, shove a resignation letter in her boss's face, and take a leap of faith, betting on herself.

She knows she has what it takes. She's been doing it to make her employer richer for years. And given the chance, she'd prove what she can do for herself.

If only she knew how to get started. If only she believed in herself enough.


I get it. I've been there.

That's why my mission is to liberate an army of phenomenal black women from their cubicle prisons and send them soaring into their dreams as profitable shop & boutique owners, unleashing time and income flexibility that exceed their employee lifestyle!

The secret sauce? I only work with women who have a positive attitude and an entrepreneurial spirit, take ownership for their success, and are coachable, resourceful, committed, and decisive. PERIOD. It's never about the money; once you make the decision to claim your dream, opportunities will open up all around you that you'd never seen before.

Thing is, it takes more than an idea and excitement to build a solid, sustainable retail shop...MUCH more. My clients discover how to clarify their business framework, lay the groundwork the right way, set themselves up for consistent success in the future, and GET STARTED!

So if you're tired of dragging yourself into the office to endure another soul-sucking day building somebody else's dream, WATCH MY BRAND-NEW free WORKSHOP to learn more about how you can escape the 9-to-5 grind and launch your freedom-focused boutique in no time flat...
