All About Us

History Background

Throughout my life I was subject to bullying, racism, violence, and fear, among many other challenges. Growing up in an underserved community myself I have seen firsthand the effects that lack of knowledge and resources have on low-income families.  I understand the importance of business services that are necessary for building thriving communities. With a background in education and firsthand experience working with families in low-income areas I learned how much business support, resources and tools were needed and necessary. This is why 1st Steps to Business was founded. 1st Steps 2 Business is committed to empowering underserved individuals with the tools, resources, and support needed to succeed, we are driven by a passion to see people thrive. Join us in creating a better future with 1st Steps 2 Business.
