“With less than 5 % of women CEOs of Fortune 1000 companies and less than 20% of women in U.S. Congress, I, like many others, see the inequity in the diverse art of leadership here in the U.S. and internationally. Increasing the number of women leaders broadens our worldly horizons and potentially changes the trajectory of over 50,000 years of human history. I started Imagine Leadership LLC to celebrate the ‘everyday leaders’, to create more visible role models in the world, and to make sure that skills, tools, and resources are available to anyone who dreams of stepping up into their own authentic leadership for oneself, your families, and your communities. Be the leader that you seek… Love a better a world.”

 “Over 56% of businesses fail in the first 4 years.” – U.S. Small Business Administration

Why we created #StartMyBusinessToday? 

As a Former Director of Women’s Business Center funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration, I worked with thousands of clients who desired to start a business, but lacked the training, connections, and funding to start a business. Business owners with great ideas often fail due to inefficient processes, ineffective marketing, and lack of capital. It was disappointing witnessing the majority of these entrepreneurs not given a chance to test out their business idea. Around Philadelphia, the successful entrepreneurs that launched their business had an education, many connections, and opportunities for funding.

But what about people who don’t have 2 years and hundreds of thousands to get their MBA or $29,000 (the average startup expenses) to start a business? 

What happened to equal opportunity? 

I was upset that it seemed impossible for anyone with an idea to open a business…. It was completely unfair. I wanted to level the playing field. After starting numerous departments, organizations, and businesses earning $100,000 in 3 months, I became an expert in the process. With over 15 years research, testing curriculum, and experience working in or with startups (Yes, I started as a little kid!), I created the #StartMyBusinessToday Program to give aspiring entrepreneurs at least a chance to launch their business with online classes, Live Group Conference Call Coaching, and funding opportunities.

It can be simple to start a business, but there’s too much contradictory information out there. 

We’ve tested #StartMyBusinessToday Step by Step process and streamlined it to include vital information in the shortest amount time. We created an online community for you to brainstorm, connect, and help other entrepreneurs. We have refined the #BankabledBusinessPlan process. Then we connect you to funding to open up more doors for you. So that now anyone that has an idea can start my business today.
