Welcome to my site!
This site is all about Progreshion (Progression) and showing ways that entrepreneurs and business owners can improve their business.
I eat, sleep and breath entrepreneurship and business. More than any other time (at least in recent years) entrepreneurs and business owners are needed to help stimulate the economy. I have my Bachelor of Arts in English from Howard University, Washington, D.C., and a Masters in Professional Studies in Sports Industry Management (Business, Management & Operations concentration) from Georgetown University, Washington D.C. As a child, I started a monthly family newsletter, and sold everything from necklaces on the playground to potato chips and candy.
I am the founder and Blogger in Chief for CEO Blog Nation and the founder and digital marketing specialist behind Blue 16 Media. My past ventures include Exemplary Editing, Kidz Sports Drill and co-founding Men of Character of Virginia.
I am a member of Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity, Sigma Tau Delta International Honor Society and the AmeriCorps Heads Up program. I have been on the grant writing team for Men of Character of Virginia ($1,000), Capital Cause ($3,000) and American Humanics ($100,000).
I currently works to help support small businesses and entrepreneurship with Blue 16 Media and CEO Blog Nation. I am an adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College.
Recently, I was featured on WOL 1450 AM and 93.9 WKYS, Business Rockstars and have been published on All Business Experts, Fox Small Business, Patch.com, Prince William Business Magazine, The Atlanta Post and Under 30 CEO.
I recently completed a short book for aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners called Lil’ Bessie Starts a Business: How One Girl Started a Business & You Can Too! .
