Tell us about your business. Be sure to include why you started your business and what products, solutions, and services you provide for consumers. who your target audience is: I am an Author, Entrepreneur, and Executive Producer of the Podcast Radio Show “bBold Radio” where we are BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS OVER LIVES DAILY. I coach women and entrepreneurs who have been everything to EVERYONE else but are ready to become something for THEMSELVES. I share self- developmental strategies and techniques that empowers them to make their dreams a reality by speaking their dreams in existence. And as a result of working with me, they discover their own personal joy and live healthier and happier lives.
What does entrepreneurship mean to you and why did you step into this arena? Entrepreneurship to me is the self- discovery of owning your future and your time. I’ve always wanted to own my own time and my own future. Every since I was 9 years old, I have always wanted to own my own business.
What or who has been your greatest influence in business and why? My greatest influences are entrepreneurial women like Sara Blakely, Oprah Winfrey, Madam CJ Walker. These are just a few women who have shown what working with what’s in your hand really means. I am a strong believer that God can multiply what’s in your hand, meaning that if we take the steps of faith by using the gifts, talents, and creativity that He’s given us, He will multiply it.
What would you say is your greatest win in business? My greatest win has been me staying true to my brand. I believe that the audience and the customer base that bought into the brand. When you are true and consistent with your brand, customers and clients will automatically buy into any product. Being true to myself has been my biggest win.
What’s the best advice you have received in business that you wish to pass on to our readers? The best advice I’ve received is to never stop learning. No matter how successful we become, we should never stop learning and evolving.
What has been the most effective marketing initiatives or programs you have used to promote your business? Facebook has always been my most effective marketing tool. I have been marketing on Social Media before it became popular. I was criticized and mocked at first, but now it’s the “IN” thing. Because I didn’t’ allow the critics to stop me, I’ve acquired a huge audience on Facebook. I’m extremely grateful for that. If you use it for the right reasons, it can do wonders for your business and brand.
What have you learned as a business owner and entrepreneur that you can pass on to others seeking this position or just started out in business? I would suggest never comparing your business to someone else’s. If you are clear about what you do, what your offer, and what your goals are, you can avoid many comparing yourself to others. FOCUS ON YOUR BUSINESS. I have learned to be patient as well. Success doesn’t happen overnight, you must remain patient through the process.
Are there any resources or tools you’d like to share with other small business owners that have helped you run your business? If yes, please describe (and include links if available). No one walked me through starting any of my businesses. I could have avoided so many delays and setbacks if I had the tools that I have now provided for people. That’s why I opened up an online educational school called bBold University where there is a library of information provided to market, and run your businesses successfully. https://bbolduniversity.teachable.com.
Do you have any new projects coming up (or have you just completed a big project ~ reached a milestone, etc.)? If so, please tell us about it. I am planning to launch a platform for female entrepreneurs, aspiring business owners or first-time freelancer, I want to help them achieve everything they want in life and business. On this platform, I want to share with them the tips, tricks, advice, and spiritual empowerment necessary to become a successful entrepreneur.
Who are you behind the business? Tell us who you are when no is looking. What do you do for fun/relaxation? What’s your favorite vacation spot to unwind? Behind my business, I’m a full-time dance mom. I take quality time with my husband and daughters VERY seriously, they are my first priority. I enjoy spending quality time laughing it up and letting my hair down with my close friends. My favorite vacation spot is Mexico.

The purpose of this book is to change lives and give the world an amazing voice of hope like never before.
