Charlene with Angie Gray and Amber Berry
Feel Good Finances
One of the biggest stressors in life is money. They say money is the #1 cause of divorce. I live below my means for this very reason. Stressing over money takes the joy out of life. But sometimes life happens and we get into a money mess. Amber is a finance and money coach that will help you feel good about your finances. She’ll help you overcome the shame and guilt that sometimes come with money troubles.

Renee is the coach for you if you’re tired of sitting on your dreams and you need someone to light a fire under you.

The Perception Practice
Can I just say I love Monica? She is gorgeous inside and outside. Monica helps women feel empowered at work. I think the work that she does is amazing as someone who spent nearly a decade in corporate America. There’s a lot of focus on helping new business owners be successful, but there aren’t a lot of resources to help other professionals. I happen to believe that we need empowered, engaged people (including black women) in all industries. Monica also has a great new podcast, The Rush Hour Mentor. Check it out!
Speaking of needing empowered, engaged black women across all industries Rebecca Thompson is the candidacy coach. She helps black women run for office, raise the necessary funds for a successful campaign, and overcome their limiting beliefs as it relates to running for office (you know – the “I’m too young” or “I don’t have enough experience” myths we believe about ourselves). Rebecca also has a fast growing podcast dedicated to black women in politics. Check it out here: Changing the Face of Power
Courtney Sanders is the think and grow chick, a cute play on the book Think and Grow Rich. Women need to be vested in their personal and financial growth just as much as men do. Courtney leads the way in teaching women to think and grow rich.
Lisa Nichols, also known as The Secret lady, is a motivational speaker, coach and best selling author. Her website url is exactly on point. She motivates the masses to take charge of their life and rescue themselves. Her message is so on point considering the emotional tension following the presidential election. When you are committed to rescuing yourself it doesn’t matter who’s president.
Natasha is the Souful Sales coach. Sometimes sales can feel manipulative and self serving. The mental and emotional energy that stirs up for a lot of people when they think of sales keeps them from making sales. Natasha helps business owners reprogram their beliefs around sales so they can enroll new clients authentically.
Dr. Venus Opal Reese
I first became aware of Dr. Venus Opal Reese when I went searching for “black women millionaires”. I was just learning about Napolean Hill and Les Brown and I was starting in real estate investing. I wanted to find other black women committed to building wealth and that led me to Dr. Venus. Interestingly, Dr. Venus led me to Rosetta Thurman who led me to a lot of the other black women coaches on this list. Dr. Venus helps black women heal their generational wounds so they can attact and earn the money they desire. She is super genuine, authentic and full of personality.
Family and Relationship
Blended Family Bliss
Ain’t no baby momma drama over here. Chavonne helps blended families live in peace and harmony. Considering that nearly half of marriages end in divorce blending families is a necessity. I saw a meme that said something to the effect that if you are older than 27 and not married be prepared to be a step parent. Welp, that’s me! But I’m not worried. I know who I’ll be calling.
Dr. Kimberly Dunlap
Dr. Kimberly Dunlap (or should I say Dr. Love) helps successful women find success in love. If you’re tired of achieving success in virtually every area of life except one of the most intimate, special areas of life you can do something about it. Kim can help you do it.
I love Angie! Every time I’m feeling discouraged Angie always has a Word for me. Even when I don’t say anything about what I’m feeling Angie happens to just touch on the very subject. If you want to claim your rightful inheritance as a Blessed Black Woman, First Lady Angie is your coach. (Yes, she really is a First Lady).
Kim Davis For the One
Kim helps women walk in their God given purpose. Kim will guide you to a deeper relationship with God. She will support you as you establish your personal spiritual practice to stay connected to God. Her business and ministry is for the One. Kim is also super adorable with a big heart.
And last but not least!
I’m a personal growth and transformation coach. I believe that we can truly create the life we want if we are willing to grow. I help women grow. I help them overcome the feelings of unworthiness and the self-sabotage. I guide them as they rediscover their true, authentic, and powerful selves so that they can find fulfillment and meaning. It is time for us as black women to finally go after what we want out of life. It is time for us to stop suppressing and denying our hearts desires because we feel undeserving. It is time for us to stop putting our needs last. It is time for us to take a stand and say, “Yes, I want that. Yes, I deserve it. And no, I will not settle for less.”
