Before working with Makisha and Sistahpreneurs I had great ideas but no clear plan for messaging or selling to government agencies. In my work with Makisha, I got government certified, got help pitching my business to investors and re-designed packaging and messaging of my services in order to secure more contracts

"I loved the fact that this group is for Black women. Also the aspect of having both one-on-one sessions and group sessions combined. Makisha is a forthright woman who makes it easy to come forward with questions and concerns. She's a real person, easily accessible, like a girlfriend who gives it to you straight, which I really appreciate very much. She/Sistahpreneurs demystifies the process of building a brand." - (Dianne Myles, Dope Mom Life)
