My name is Yolanda Brown with Yolanda Nichole, LLC. I help business and community leaders create meaningful outcomes while they maintain peace, clarity and joy.
I accomplish this by utilizing natural curiosity, a sense of justice and a warrior mentality to produce the strongest outcomes in support of the overall mission. Any work I do demonstrates love, integrity, knowledge, joy, and faith. Listening, empowerment, organization, and empathy are keys to success in creating positive outcomes with my work. This has helped me accomplish a lot including founding a company, leading several organizations and raising 2 amazing sons as a single parent.
I want to help you create outstanding outcomes to support your mission.
As a long-time business consultant, an entrepreneur and single parent who’s vision is to be a trusted ally in developing flourishing companies and communities across the country.
As an entrepreneur who has spent time in Corporate America and non-profits, and motherhood, I understand the desire for successful business and community leadership, and have experienced the overwhelm of wanting everything to be just right. When I went through the school of hard knocks through job, marriage and home losses while raising two small sons, I continued to have the desire to “not put all my eggs in one basket” and “create multiple streams of income” but wasn’t sure what the best way to start was for me. I have been a business consultant, written business advice in numerous publications and founded or led many programs to support people take the lead in their professional or personal lives.
It took me a while to even understand what to truly put my energy towards for meaningful work… but I finally got it.
Over time, I have grown the confidence to change my overwhelm into productivity with peace and sanity.
If you can relate to wanting any of the above, this is an online sanctuary made just for you.
I am dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs through the start-up and growth of their companies.
