Success Stories

icon_testimonial-quote

Years ago, when I first began my business journey I was excited and felt unstoppable, but as time passed and life happened, I put it on the back burner where it laid dormant until Makisha founded Sistahpreneurs. After working with Makisha, it felt like a weight was lifted because she helped clarify my goals, define my purpose and re-imagine the potential outcomes.

REGINA GROFF

Commision ED

Every year I set goals that I struggle the remainder of the year to accomplish. Largely because I don't have a clear and realistic plan. This year, I registered for Goal Digger and the few hours we spent together was so amazing! I left feeling not just motivated, but PREPARED!

I’m blessed by the blood sweat and tears poured into us by Sistapreneurs founder Makisha Boothe. I can't express my gratitude for our group coaching space and the amazing women I shared it with. I can't wait for 2019, to tackle the goals I set, the strategy I created toward my vision and the systems I am putting in place to support them.

We Sistahpreneurs had an epic weekend at the #goaldigger retreat! So many jewels to apply to our businesses, as well as all the connections we continue creating. Life changing!

This past weekend Joslyn Raquel & I were a part of something amazing. We sat/danced/laughed/cried in a room with 16 phenomenal Black women entrepreneurs based in Colorado and built - brick by brick - the foundation of our soon to be multi-million dollar businesses. We empowered one another, strategized like a motha, and got reaaal comfortable with knowing our WHY and our NUMBERS.

I appreciate this Goal God of a woman, Makisha soooo much. I thank you! I’m still kicking and scream over all the homework LOL (p.s. she does not play about homework either. I messed around and didn’t get some of it done and POW it was doubled)

Let me tell you, there is nothing like having a business coach that is not only a cheerleader but just the right amount of big sister, tell it like it is, don't let you play small, don't play no games, holds you accountable, and does it with all the love! that EVERYONE needs... Thank you for being one of the dopest business coaches EVER!!!
