Helping creators fearlessly shape culture.

hi, i'm makisha.

It all started when…

I realized I could truly change the world with my unique skills and experience. In fact, I could create my own lane and empower others to do the same. In June 2018, I launched my flagship individual coaching program where I coach dope people like you gain clarity on your ideas. So, all those thoughts you have that you're finding it hard to organize, I help bring peace and effective strategy to your life. Want to hear it from people I work with? Scroll on down!

but before you do that…

I’m super geeked about something. Last year I moved to Washington D.C. from Miami. I know, I know, we’ll talk about that craziness later. But, moving has been one of the hardest but best decision I’ve made to date. So, since every other week is a roller coaster, I figured I’d let you join me for the ride. No BS, no fluff. My refined and not so refined thoughts on entrepreneurship, branding, life, relationships, adventure and travel. Find my journey here!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. It is that we are powerful beyond measure.

What My clients are saying...

Makisha has a wealth of knowledge in branding! She takes her time to listen to what I’m saying and provide feedback or clarification. The best part of my sessions is the ability to dive in and actually form the picture I’ve envisioned. I’ve learned how to hone in on my target market/niche. She’s provided great examples of questions to ask my target group and how to utilize the information provided in a meaningful way! Every meeting I leave with wealth of knowledge. Our meetings are detailed and goal oriented to meet my brand goals. The light bulb is finally on! Thank you for taking the time to fully invest in helping me accomplish my business dream!

Have you ever had a business idea but did not know where to start? That was me until I found Brand University. I have one word to describe #BrandU ... exceptional! I have been working with Makisha for three months and am confident in her approach. She is particularly knowledgeable about brand development. Through her guidance, I have been able to take my idea and work toward turning it into what I envision! Her one-hour coaching calls are phenomenal because I am able to receive advice tailored toward my branding goals. I enjoy learning from Makisha and creating my strong business strategy through her unique exercises. If you have an idea and need help making it a reality, I highly recommend Makisha’s Brand University which will walk you step - by - step through the process!

As a small start-up company, our brand development was especially critical to the progression of our business. Makisha was able to see this and helped create a clear vision and guide to help us throughout the entire the process. She anticipated all of our needs and asked questions we hadn’t thought of. She consistently gave us the opportunity to dive deeper into what really made our brand ours.

Throughout the process, she was extremely personal and patient with us, even through the countless times that we changed our minds. She filled in the gap of our vision by always remaining a step ahead of us; doing research into our market and providing options when we got stuck. We started with wood and plaster and Makisha brought the cement to make our vision a reality.Thank you Makisha for everything!
