"Founders of Color’s Scale + Grow program is a game changer. It’s revealed new opportunities for revenue growth and has directed my attention to strategies that yield the highest outcomes. It’s refined the way I view my business as well as the way my business looks in the marketplace. I give it my highest recommendation."
- Ayanna Buckner, MD - Principal, Community Health Cooperative
"I have been incredibly impressed by the content and presentation of the Scale + Grow course. It is straightforward and instructive. I’ve worked with other consultants and read books on the subjects covered in the course. Scale + Grow is unique in that it breaks down a broad range of important topics into easy, practical steps. It is also very efficient in its delivery - a big plus for those of us who are time conscious. And Kelly is an absolute delight. She makes it fun. Highly recommended."
- Hope Ferdowsian, MD - Principal, Phoenix Zones Initiative
"Kelly and the cohort she pulled together is exactly what I needed. She not only provided the tools and resources I needed to learn how to grow my business, but she also cultivated a fun and dynamic space that pushed me to be accountable to my own goals. With the biweekly cohort calls, the workbook and videos, plus the one-on-one time I've developed a clear roadmap on how to grow my business over the next several years. And because Kelly is a taskmaster I've already taken some critical steps to move my business while still moving through the course."
"Where do I start? Kelly at Founders of Color has been such a supportive coach, leader and friend. She is inspiring and practical. The coaching program has been exactly what this entrepreneur has needed for a long time. I highly recommend her and her organization. There is none better!"
- Leigh Lester-Holmes, Holmes Unlimited
"Scale + Grow was the most AMAZING opportunity for me and my business! The program transformed my mindset regarding what I and my business have the capacity to do. I was comfortable with incremental change, but Kelly challenged me to think beyond my limited experiences. In addition to the challenge and accountability, I received so many resources that have improved our processes. I now have a concrete plan for intentionally working in my business and growing beyond what I thought was possible!"
- Taneisha Lee PhD, Transformative Research and Evaluation
"I knew I needed to do something different, if I wanted different results. I was ready to make an investment in myself and my business and Founders of Color’s Scale & Grow coaching program was just what I needed to put my business development plans into high gear. I consistently churn out great ideas for my consulting practice, but FOC’s Scale & Grow coaching program and the cohort helped me sharpen my ideas and utilize the latest industry tools and resources to maximize my efforts. The bi-weekly accountability calls, the individual coaching, the video modules and written assignments helped me to get clear and focused on developing and executing my plan for scale and growth. I’ve already seen a financial return on my investment, but beyond that I’ve developed a renewed faith in what’s possible for my business and the clients I serve. Thanks FOC!"

By participating in this program, you're making an investment in your business. It's unrealistic to expect your business to deliver a return on investment if you're not investing in your business in the first place.
Either you pay the cost associated with investing in your business, or you pay the price for not. Either way, you're gonna pay.
Why not partner with an organization with proven results supporting entrepreneurs like you?
Your business is your primary source of income.
You’re tired of doing it the hard way.
You are an executer at heart and results oriented.
You're willing to create the space and time in your life to commit to doing the work.
You're ready to make an investment in your business' success.
By the five-year mark, most small businesses fail.
Only 7% reach $250K.
Upwards of 40% of business owners can't afford to pay themselves
and 93% of black and brown businesses have no employees.
You can continue to "go it alone" OR you can choose to connect with other like-minded entrepreneurs of color who are serious about building their best business while achieving true economic freedom.
In the words of Tony Robbins, "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten." White owned businesses generate 10X the revenue of black firms and 8X the revenue of Latino firms.
Time out for business as usual.
