The ideal mentor is someone who understands what you’re going through, and can offer advice based on a shared experience.
A little more about me:
I retired from Corporate America in June 2021 to pursue my passion for corporate mentorship. During my twenty-plus years in the corporate arena, specifically Big Law, I experienced many difficult situations and injustices. My experiences opened my eyes to the lack of diversity in executive leadership roles, and the challenging environments in the workplace. During my work life I was considered the "first black woman" and "only woman" in more situations that I can count. Unfortunately, like so many others, I was a victim of workplace discrimination and I often felt so alone and afraid. As a manager, I can remember hiding my disgust with the lack of discrimination prevention in Corporate America. Additionally, I witnessed firsthand the effect of not educating managers on proper workplace management. So many managers fail to understand the power in empowering their employees.
My hope is to not only give those with shared experiences a spark of hope and inspiration, but to educate owners and managers on how to properly handle discrimination, harassment and retaliation. My firm also works to educate both employers and employees on how to handle workplace issues. If both sides work towards a common goal we will see a decline in business failures and employee turnover.
Proper people management is the key to a thriving Corporate America. If you are reading this and need help unleashing your leadership abilities please join my email list. I hope to inspire you to develop leadership skills, ultimately putting you in a position to make the most of your career. If you stick with me, you will learn how to navigate your way to the top, and/or move on to become a successful business owner.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME . . .
I retired from Corporate America in June 2021 at the age of 37, and a single mom of two children. During my work life I was considered the "first black woman" and "only woman" in more situations that I can count. While I believe I was born with a natural ability to lead, I didn't realize that the inherent leadership potential that I possessed could help me grow professionally.
During my twenty-plus years in the corporate arena, specifically Big Law, I have experienced many difficult situations and injustices, but for the most part, there have been more good situations than bad ones, and I have learned from every single experience. The most important lesson I've learned along the way is the difference between "just managing" people and leading them effectively.
My experiences opened my eyes to the lack of diversity in executive leadership roles, and the challenging environments in the workplace. I believe in maintaining a growth mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose, and always striving for significant outcomes. When you work with me, you should expect a collaboration with transparency and consistency.
My ultimate goal is to help you learn how to unleash your leadership abilities by bringing out your self-confidence. I hope to inspire you to develop leadership skills, ultimately putting you in a position to make the most of your work experience. If you stick with me, you will learn how to navigate your way to the top, and/or move on to become a successful business owner. My dream is to create minority owned businesses that will last, by investing in people.

Taking your business to the next level
The most common reasons small businesses fail include a lack of capital or funding, retaining an inadequate management team, a faulty infrastructure or business model, and unsuccessful marketing initiatives.
There are 30.2 million small businesses in the U.S. But only a fraction of them survive. 20% of small businesses fail by the first year, 30% by the second, 50% by the fifth, and by the 10th year, a staggering 70% of businesses have shut off their lights.
For minorities, the numbers can be even more horrific. Eight out of 10 Black-owned businesses fail within the first 18 months. Studies show that during periods of economic turmoil, minority-owned businesses fail at a much higher rate than other businesses. This happens, in part, because of systemic racism at financial institutions that make it difficult for minority-owned businesses to obtain debt financing.
Bad management has also caused minority-owned organizations to permanently close their doors. Poor leadership results in high turnover of employees; the cost of recruitment and training becomes prohibitive, which can impact a business's ability to continue operations.
Managers and/or owners have the most direct influence on employees they manage. They carry the responsibility for aligning the performance of the business and its staff with overarching organizational goals. Management plays a vital role in shaping organizational culture.
“Good” management benefits every aspect of a business, including the executives, the employees and the customers. Good management involves considering every employee as an individual and finding ways to maximize their potential by using their unique skills.
