Make money, Impact your community, heal yourself
I have created and built Afropreneuses for women like me who use business as a therapy to heal themselves, serve others and become free.
In my journey to liberate myself from the diktats of society, business and serving others has been my therapy. Most of my clients, just like me, have been through hell. Unhealthy relationships, unhealthy education, unhealthy jobs, unhealthy relationships to themselves. Words and patterns they have been nurtured with from a very young age that have prevented them from becoming the woman they really want to be.
I have been through hell.
I was not a desired child and I have had to fight for my life in my mother’s womb. Even before I made my first cry on hearth. This feeling, this sensation of not being desired, of being unloved, unwanted, created patterns I kept repeating over and over again in every aspects of my life. I attracted men, friendships and clients that always placed me in the position of being abandoned or fearing to be so. Unhealed, I created business to free myself but it became a burden. I was building businesses were my presence was more than necessary. Uncapable to put the boundaries necessary for my sanity. Each time I felt in danger, I used the same pattern. Fighting for taking space. Being noticed. Gaining weight. I did not consider my self as being enough. I was not worthy of unconditional love. Therefore, my all carreer was about doing more, giving more, being more present so that no one could abandon me, abort me, humilate me.
I gave so much without receiving enough. Money was coming and leaving the same second. I did not know my value. Things were always crazy, going all over the place. I lost myself. I lost my power. All the fear I had deep down in my bones and in my DNA become true. My husband left me with our 2 kids, my business collapsed. I was broke, in dept and depressed.
When I launched my second business Cleva Consulting, I used the same patterns. Doing a lot, asking very little. Freshly divorced, I did my best to be the perfect mother. Not the one my kids needed me to be. Chased by the Gods of guilt again, with this little voice in my head telling me I was not doing enough. That only my HARD work could get me where I wanted to be, get me what I needed to have. Once again. NOT BEING ENOUGH. Until…. a major event happened to me BURN OUT. Because I could not turn my head again and put it in the sand, I dived deep into those patterns and belief systems who made me the women I had become : uncapable of walking, moving, taking any decision, dancing, being the light I am supposed to be. The light I want to be. For myself, my children, my clients, my family. I wanted to chop what no longer served me. Break those patterns and beliefs 1 by 1 to create the business that I want to create. To express myself in the most authentic way. To be FREE. At Last!
In that journey for liberation, I have attracted women hove trusted me to guide them in their business journey. Women who went through hell, who were beaten up, abandoned, humiliated, diminished as women, discriminated against. Who were prevented from being the light they are supposed to be. Women who want to serve the world and impact their communities. Women who have to deconstruct everything they were taught they have to do or to be in order to be loved, admired, protected. Everything they were told as women. Everything they were told because they are black. Everything the were told because they are black women.
Women who want to gain their freedom. Financial freedom, spiritual freedom, body freedom.
Women who know their business journey is their key to liberation.
Women who want to heal
Afropreneuses is a unique coaching platform that offers inspiration, motivation and effective business strategies to help black women launch and develop their business. With the Summit, my goal is to create a safe space for black women to share their experience in a true and authentic way. I truly believe in the power of stories as transformational tools, both a the listener and as the teller.
With ClevaSchool, my online coaching program, I offer online courses in marketing, communication, selfcare, finances, and team up with the best experts in their domain to help women grow their businesses with the right tools and the right strategy.
With my consulting and 1to1 coaching programs, I help women who need to be guided on the long run and need me to go in depth in the businesses structure, but also in the mental blocs and patterns that prevent them to go where they want to go. I use of course, my experience as a media strategist, as a serial entrepreneur, but also tools such as MBTI and my intuition to guide them effectively on the right path.
My vision, with Afropreneuses, is to create a global crew, the clevacrew, of smart, intuitive, inspirational women who are willing to stop fighting and start receiving. Who are willing to open an easier path for our children when they become adults. Who are willing to create a world where we will no longer need to tell our sons and daughters that they need to be twice as good and be twice as much. A world where being authentically who we are will be enough.
