Success Stories

"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 Sistahbiz. 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."

"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!"
