On this date last year, I announced to the world my transition into full time entrepreneurship. Over the past 365 days, I have been consistently amazed at the support and trust that the social impact sector has shown toward my firm.
Although I don't have funders or shareholders who require reports, I wanted to set a precedent for support entities like mine serving the mission-driven ecosystem. We have a duty and a privilege to use our platforms and skillsets to serve as thought partners alongside our clients. This impact report, while an intentionally quick-read, is the first "blow of the horn" I'm taking in a year I've charged myself to dismantle, disrupt, and reinvent every oppressive system and social construct inhibiting my people from experiencing the abundance and fullness of life we were destined to receive.
Thank you to my all star team, our growing partner network, our clients and my family & friends for your unwavering dedication. I will make you proud.
Yours in service,
Our team is 78% women, 89% African-American, 56% Detroit-area natives, 78% Michigan-natives, and 10% international. Keep reading to learn more about our consultants.
Call to Action
What we've learned these past 365 days was no surprise. Well-intentioned people and programs are missing the mark when it comes to impact. We urge you to consider this: what if what we do these next 365 days determines the fate for the next 100 years? Would you approach your work the same, or would this information awaken a fire inside you and your organization to stop settling for "moving the needle" and just get the things done?
