Wish you had a clientele that would actually pay you what you’re worth?

 Are you tired of hearing perspective clients say “But I can’t afford that!”

Throughout history, professionals in the fields of medicine, nursing, counseling, education, coaching and ministry have been overworked and underpaid for their services, even when they transition into entrepreneurship.  Sadly, graduate school prepared us to help and serve others, but they missed the mark in showing us how to help ourselves once we leave an organization and branch out on our own as entrepreneurs.  Well I'm here to show you how to build and grow your service based business, while shattering the poverty mindset you've grown accustomed too; because you can serve, sell, AND get paid !

My Story

I’ve loved every minute of my journey...

January 1996

I started a mental health private practice specializing in working with female survivors of sexual assault. 

A graduate of Tulane University School of Social Work, I started a private practice that provided counseling services to survivors of sexual assault for 20 years. In this capacity, I also provided consulting, contract services and professional trainings to the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office, The Stop Rape Crisis Center, the Department of Children and Family Services, and the National Association of Social Workers.  While serving as a social worker, I also served as an Assistant Professor and Instructor at Bard College, Indiana Wesleyan University and the Southern University A&M College System where I taught research and social entrepreneurship on both an undergraduate and graduate level.   

MARCH 2004

I opened the 3rd African American Book Store in Baton Rouge Rouge, Louisiana.

I co-founded The Roots Bookstore in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  The mission of the store was to provide an atmosphere where African Americans could come together to learn and grow as a community.  Featured authors included Dr. Ivory A. Toldson, former Executive Director for the White House Initiative on HBCU's and bestselling urban fiction writer, Karlyn LeBlanc.  

APRIL 2007

I founded a publishing company and released the first of 8 publications.

After being told NO by several publishing companies, I started Shero Productions and self-published my first book, Sideline Ho, which went on to become a best selling African-American novel.  Under Shero Productions, I also published my first business book, Lipstick, Heels & Hustle: A Woman's Guide To Entrepreneurship.

October 2016

After 20 years, I closed my private practice and transitioned into working with entrepreneurs. 

Burned out, I realizing that I had served my community for over 20 years as a social worker and college professor, and that it was time to move in a different direction.  So I closed the doors to my practice and retired my social work shingle and transitioned into a field that allows me to utilize all of my skills, knowledge and expertise beyond walls, boundaries and politics in a virtual space.  As an online business strategist, in 2018, 87% of the students who participated in my virtual academy started their own business and 83% of my private coaching clients also became successful business owners.  As an entrepreneur, I saw a 50% increase in revenue once I transitioned out of counseling and running a private practice.
