Leadership Development for Black Woman-Led Small Businesses

What topics do you like to discuss?

Even though black women in corporate America may be receiving opportunities for professional leadership development, small business leaders are often not investing the time and money for themselves and for their teams, if they have teams. Providing both inspiration and information that speaks to their specific unique needs as black women who are pursuing lofty goals can make a difference between success and failure for them.

As the founder and host of this podcast show, my lofty goal is to be an ongoing resource for the black woman leader who has survived crisis and trauma. My hope is that she can gain more self-awareness and pursue her dream of making a bigger impact no matter the size of her small business. I would love to stay in touch with you about what’s going on with the show. Please join my newsletter email list below.

[New Book] Small Biz Big Impact, But How? 2nd Edition with Journal

Black Women Leaders who own Small/Micro/Solo businesses:

Do you want to have your business make more impact in the world?

Are you a conscious selfless servant but not sure about how you can make a bigger impact?

Even when it’s not intentional, even the smallest drip of water creates a ripple effect across the whole pond. So, “small business” is a misnomer because, with intentionality, you can make a big positive impact on the world.

If you choose to purchase this book, thank you in advance. Purchasing this book supports the ongoing development of the Plant Your Seeds of Transformation podcast which is hosted by Coach Donna Marie.

Throughout this podcast we have addressed issues that impact the mindsets of black women leaders including perfectionistic tendencies, low self-esteem, and more. I wrote this book because I am well aware that many of us black women leaders have a hard time seeing ourselves as leaders and/or seeing ourselves being able to make big impact when our businesses are underfunded, undervalued, and overlooked. However, there are ways to get around any obstacle, as long as you keep your hope alive.

I hope my book will help you to keep your hope alive.

God bless you.

Podcast Season Over But Coworking Has 6 Weeks


How can black women leaders understand themselves better and make better choices so that they will live more happily and have more joy in all of their relationships?

Getting past perfectionism is one of the keys to this… and it’s much easier to do that within community.

In one of my latest videos, I talked about the importance of community in this process.

Use our weekly co-working community to help you focus and get important stuff done with the support of a non-judgemental community full of like-minded black women leaders.

We started 6 weeks ago on this 12-week journey. You still have plenty of time to join us and get stuff done for 2 hours every night over 6 weeks.
