An award-winning mentoring community and membership program for hard-working and talented people of color seeking a personal blueprint for overcoming systemic barriers of oppression to escape an unfulfilling lifestyle and attain a higher quality of life, excelling in all aspects of their lives: personal, professional, in leadership and financially.
We also serve as a service provider for allies, educational institutions and organizations looking to partner with us to promote, recruit or bring our educational and mentor-ship programming to their communities.
Our Values and Philosophies
Curriculum: We saw a need for educational programming that addresses the unique obstacles presented to women of ethnic descent on their journey to taking back control over their lives and attaining stability and wealth. Instead of waiting for someone who take note and become sensitive to these needs, we decided to do it ourselves.
Community: One of the best ways of transforming your life for the better and living a life of fulfillment, stability and wealth building, is a change of environment. We provide a community of supportive, ambitious and resourceful individuals who want you to succeed and hold high importance on collaboration and integrity. To us, you are not just a client or consumer but a valued family member.
Coaching and Mentorship: Just as we believe in the powerful transformational power of communities, we also believe in the power of personal / professional coaching and mentorship. Mentors can be the people you need to expedite your success in life.
Giving Back / Give First: We believe in offering value before asking anything in return.
Fair Trade / Fair Pay: We believe in charging fair and reasonable prices / barter partnerships to offer our services and won't charge an arm and a leg.
Progress Not Perfection / Continual Progress: You can start transforming your life right now. We believe the best time to start was yesterday, and we believe that it is important to appreciate and value the journey over the end result.
Autonomy Over Your Growth Process: We are not here to tell you one way to live your life to the fullest. Rather, we want to introduce you to all we have to offer and allow you to choose which programs and/or services you would like to take in addition to our expert recommendations and suggestions.
Transparency: We publish an annual report of the programs we have created, support and where our donations and 20% of FLP proceeds are going / supporting for you to see and share.
