Yolanda has coached and consulted entrepreneurs since 2003. She has directly helped over 100 entrepreneurs across the Southeast U.S. by writing and developing business plans, marketing plans, commercial loan packaging, MWBE application packaging and much more. She began blogging in 2005 and freelance business writing in 2010 which has impacted many more entrepreneurs across the country. She earned an MBA from UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, BS in Industrial Engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and professional certifications from Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, U.S. Minority Business Development Agency and National Development Council. As a proud graduate of Leadership North Carolina, she has contributed to her community as a board director for Urban Ministries of Durham and assistant den leader for her son's Cub Scouts den as well as volunteered for Meals on Wheels of Durham, Triangle Urban League Young Professionals, Central Park School for Children and many other organizations.

After starting a family, Yolanda realized how important it was to pursue her own entrepreneurial dream (beyond consulting) to leave a legacy for her children. Now as a single mother to two fast-growing boys, she has created a vision for having multiple streams of income. She works as a freelance writer, sells items on Etsy and other marketplaces, and owns two blogs and an event childcare and children's programming service named Fun Spaces.
