ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:I’m a business strategist and confidence coach working primarily with women solo-biz owners. I help solo business owners who are unsure about the RIGHT strategy to grow their businesses by creating customized action plans to increase their confidence, clarity, and cash flow.
I use my unique background as a licensed clinical social worker and former therapist and my experience in business to help female entrepreneurs do the heart work (through confidence-building and overcoming negative mindsets) and head work (packaging, marketing, pricing, and sales, etc.) to succeed in business and in life.
I started in business then took a professional "detour" into being a social worker and family therapist, before ending up back in business. Sometimes when people have varied experiences like this they're viewed (or they view themselves) as scatterbrained, random, disjointed, etc. I like to think the opposite. I believe that EVERY part of our journey is needed for such a time as this. That's my story, and that's what I help my audience to do; combine the different legs of their journey to tell their story, find their secret sauce, and contribute to the world with their unique gifts in a way that only they can (and we like to monetize those gifts too!). I'm not practicing as a therapist now, but I use my "clinical" skills as a business coach EVERY DAY helping female entrepreneurs overcome the confidence issues, negative mind-sets, and self-sabotage that's holding them back in their business and in their lives. Combining this confidence piece with solid business strategy is really a recipe for success. Nothing is lost. Every part of the story counts, and I like to inspire folks with this message as they are building their dreams. I've been working with female entrepreneurs in my practice for the last 6 years.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:
I celebrated 6 years in business in January 2018. I've worked with over 100 female entrepreneurs directly in my individual and group coaching programs, and I estimate that I've met over 1000 through my speaking engagements and workshops over the years. I'm also a published author four times over and working on my fifth book. I'm very proud of that!
I love to go on walks in the park. Being surrounded by nature helps me think and vision for my next steps.
I love to travel with my family and friends. I'd rather invest in experiences than things.
I love to eat—LOL. And try new restaurants in the different cities I travel to for business and personal trips.
My parents: Leon Rogers, Sr. and Elizabeth Rogers. They both went through what could have been insurmountable odds in their lives and emerged with grace, love, and optimism. Their resilience inspires me.
My clients are heroes that inspire me every day. They are powerful female entrepreneurs that realize they have a gift to serve the world in their different capacities. They push through adversities, fears, and sometimes a lack of any support system to package their expertise for profit AND to give back to the world.
