What Other Entrepreneurs Have Learned Through Genesis

Angela Wright
Wright Design and Deco

The tools given through the OCEAN course—worksheets, charts, forming a mission statement, etc.—helped very much and I have referred to them in my processes. I’ve also continued to further my education and business experiences with mentors.”

Corin Weiss
Hooked Workshop

The community aspect was a big part of my decision to sign up for Genesis. Getting to bounce ideas off my cohort and see that they were struggling with the same things I was struggling with and helping each other through that stuff—that was the best part of it.”

Rokeya Thomas
Royal Consulting

“I was already an established entrepreneur and I just didn’t think it was for me…but there’s always something you can learn. Genesis reinforced practices I was already doing and gave me new ideas. If you are in the beginning stages of your entrepreneurship, I would wholeheartedly say definitely this is the program for you!”

Tulani Soffin
Cocoa Milk & Honey

“What Genesis introduced me to is how to determine if I can make this into a business—at least in terms of unit profitability.”
