Hey! I’m Bailey, an entrepreneur with over 20-years of “skin in the game.”
Being called “bazooka lips,” “big foot,” and “chicken legs” growing up, I learned early how your image determines how others view and treat you.
– BUT –
After I had my son, I realized being a Black man came with its stigmas. So, I decided to combine my love for my son and my passion for branding to help shine a positive light on minority led businesses. I want to help them define their brand, earn their worth, and show the impact they make in the world.
I Found My Superpower
Like many girls, growing up, I was constantly teased about my appearance. I became insecure about my looks and lacked self-love. But I was determined not to let that stop me. I realized the key to being comfortable in my own skin is believing I had something to offer. I knew God created me with a purpose, and I took others’ negative energy and transformed it into a successful brand.
The same applies when building any brand. Point out the elephant in the room and own what’s unique about you! Then take what you don’t like about your industry and change it by offering something better.
That’s how you define, level-up, and build an impactful personal brand. This is my approach when working with multimillion-dollar CEOs to side-hustle entrepreneurs.
Being authentic is everything. This can only be done by self-exploration, not by having a herd mentality.

ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A FIFTH GRADER?
Maybe, LOL! I did skip the 12th grade, graduated high school at 16, and graduated college with honors at 20.
I may be the brains behind the operation, but my “Chief Kid Officer” sometimes calls the shots.
