Empowering Greatness started as an idea in 2005 to become an entrepreneur and add some value and purpose to my life and my community. It took 7 years of research and due diligence before Rasheeda Frazier figured our how she was going to make that a reality. In 2012, she founded her consulting, mentoring practice Empowering Greatness Inc. as an effort to assist minority high school students and young adults with preparatory instruction for the higher education application process and introduction to the world of business and entrepreneurship, for those who decided that college/university was not something they wanted pursue. Rasheeda knew entrepreneurship was a viable option and wanted to give her mentees an alternative to the traditional push to collegiate studies after high school. It was this lack of knowledge around options and resources within her community towards post high school direction that fueled her passion. Empowered Greatness has since expanded as Rasheeda continues to fulfill her vision and mission to educate, mentor, and assist with business development, organization and operational efficiency for budding minority entrepreneurs and existing businesses within their local communities and on a global scale.

To make a difference, add value and create an impact within underserved communities globally.

Many black and brown entrepreneurs and small business owners lack key foundational knowledge to properly organize their projects and businesses. This is mostly due to lack of access to knowledge and capital resources. Even in the age of DIY with Google and YouTube University, the information received is surface at best and often leads to hiring someone else to complete tasks for tens of thousands of dollars because it is presented in a way that is not user friendly and/or all in one place.
