Hey, I'm Portia!
A Serial Entrepreneur Specializing in
Growing Service-Based Businesses from Scratch
Started from the Bottom
Born and raised in the inner-city projects of New York City's Spanish Harlem, we were no strangers to struggle, but I was blessed to never feel limited by my environment. My mother instilled in me that I could be anything and do anything I wanted to do, and I believed her. So even though there was poverty all around me, I never felt like that was my future...I always knew that there was more out there for me and I dreamed of how I could impact the world in a meaningful way.
Took the Big Leap and Fired My 9-5
Over 15 years ago, I began my full-time entrepreneurship journey when I left my corporate HR job to go full time in my business. I always knew the 'regular job' wasn't for me but it was the lack of qualify/affordable child care for my daughter that really put the fire under me to make my dreams of entrepreneurship a full time reality. It's amazing what you can do when your back is against the wall. I tried many things along the way and failed A LOT! One business led to another, and I hit big when I started a specialized staffing agency landing celebrities as hiring clients. In the process, I saw the serious need for professional development training for my candidates.
Turned My Expertise into Scalable Income
I began training and coaching more and more groups of job-seekers and helping them land quality high-paying jobs. As a result, more people wanted training but I was already spread way too thin and working weekends to keep my business thriving. I came up with the crazy idea to put everything I knew on the subject into an online course. That was a game-changer!
I Stopped Trading Time for Money
My idea was that if I get it all down online, I could have freedom of time, location and an unlimited number of clients that I could help, nationwide! While it was all trial-and-error in the beginning, it was one of the best business decisions I have ever made. With thousands of clients and successful program graduates, I'm able to live a life I love and help others do the same. Now I am dreaming bigger dreams and impact is a big part of it. It is my goal to help more people who have been in my position as a solo entrepreneur, to gain clarity in the proven, legitimate and sustainable strategies to grow a six-figure business and beyond.
