How do I know if this is for me?

That's simple. If you answer "yes" to any of the following:

  • Are you first-generation college graduate and an aspiring or new entrepreneur who ready to make a difference in the world?

  • Struggling with getting started and/or staying on track with goals and know you can benefit from being challenged and held accountable?

  • Value personal development and believe investing in yourself is of utmost importance because you know nothing in you life changes unless you do?

  • Find yourself feeling like you're on an island of your own, discouraged, doubtful, fearful, frustrated, overwhelmed, or stuck and in need of direction?

  • Seeking to gain resources and tools to be a confident, knowledgable, and impactful as an entrepreneur so you can change lives and leave your legacy?
