MY 35 YEARS OF TEACHING AND GOD’s VISION 

After teaching Entrepreneurship /Marketing and serving as a DECA Advisor for 35 years at Richmond Senior High, Irmo High, Dutch Fork and Spring Hill High GOD gave me the Vision to teach African American children in the community how to successfully start and maintain their own business.

BE INSPIRED: YOUNG ENTREPRENEURSHIP CAMPS AND CAMP WANZA

After retiring in 2017 I conducted my first Be Inspired Young Entrepreneurship Summer camp in partnership with YESCarolina .I have now conducted 4 camps, 3 camps in Columbia and 1 camp in Charleston (Camp Wanza) in honor of Tywanza Sanders the young successful entrepreneur killed in the Mother Emanuel shooting. During the 2-week FREE camp the students are taught how to create a business plan. In addition, I also coach students in partnership with the teachers in selected high schools , how to create a business plan and present their plans in a “Shark Tank” presentation.
