"I go hard for everything with my name attached to it. My family. My businesses. My life." 

-Yolanda Keels-Walker

Yolanda doesn't believe in living a life filled with wishes and wants. She believes in going after every dream you ever had and not stopping until you get it. To date, she's started and invested in eight companies that have grossed millions in sales annually.

 WORK-LIFE  B̶A̶L̶A̶N̶C̶E̶  

"Work-life balance doesn't exist when you're a mom and entrepreneur. There is, however, Work-Life Integration There is no harder job than that of a working mom. I've gone through all the phases: Stay at Home and Run the House Mom, Corporate America Chick Trying To Break The Glass Ceiling But Still A Mom, and Mom Self-Funding a Start-up in Need of a Nap & Five Million Dollars...They were all hard, and I came back stressed, exhausted, and resentful.

Over the years, I've since learned to integrate my children into the things that I do as a working mom. Sometimes you have to embrace the space you're in, be transparent with your family, and teach them to adapt."

-Yolanda Keels-Walker
