#FreedomFriend, Personal Branding & Networking Strategist is a lover of all things AWESOME. This includes great food, amazing people and travel. As a formally trained Accountant, Certified SCORE Business Counselor and Certified Life & Business Coach, Natisha is also the creator of the #FreedomFriends Network, an online group coaching and entrepreneurship development program that teaches personal branding, networking and friendship based marketing strategies. Through her company, she has created an entrepreneur training program, that promotes creating genuine friendships as a way to build sustainable, community- and referral-based businesses.
The #FreedomFriends Network grew out of frustration with other online marketing programs that seemed to focus more on technology than people, more on getting engrained in the online world than making change in local communities and seemed to show no regard for the cultural nuances that come when working with communities of color. After realizing that most who were interested and committed to bettering their communities went into coach training programs that provided very little culturally sensitive business training, the #FreedomFriends Network was born. The #FreedomFriends motto is “freedom requires friends” and through network of coaches, trainers and consultants, Natisha is connecting local entrepreneurs to one another, as well as teaching them how to acquire the friends necessary to achieve freedom…and beyond. Natisha’s future plans include creating the first online coach certification program specifically for those interested in working in communities of color and sharing her love of connecting and making friends both locally and internationally.[/text_block]
