This is a time of rapidly increasing turbulence and cynicism in today’s society, partly a result of the controversies rocking every one of our trusted institutions – government, business, family, and religion. But all of the rancor and chaos brings about opportunity! Now is a crucial time for women to recognize our power, and rise to the challenges before us!
No longer are we allowing others to diminish our power or silence our voices. Harnessing our outrage and our compassion, women around the world are mobilizing on issues that affect us and our families – issues that have long been ignored, like sexual harassment and assault; women’s legal, civil, and reproductive rights; and protections for children, just to name a few.
We are entering the political arena more than ever before and winning elected offices in unprecedented numbers. We are also stepping into our power in business, bringing about momentous change. Each and every day nearly 800 new women-owned businesses are added to the economy. That’s over 300,000 new businesses a year and counting!
This is a watershed moment in our history. It’s our moment and if more and more of us embrace and exercise our power, nothing will ever be the same!
As a mother-daughter partnership, we launched Color Your World Personal Development & Coaching, LLC. We took a leap of faith, leaving our positions as an educator/researcher in Academia and a business development officer in Corporate America, to share our knowledge, passion, and expertise with the world.

We knew that starting a business was risky, and although we were disheartened, we were not deterred by the challenges and hardships before us. However, when we learned that approximately 70% of new businesses fail within their first 5 years AND that women-owned businesses fail more often (and sooner) than their male counterparts, we couldn’t help but ask;
Answering these three questions led us on our mission as Small Business Strategists to inspire, motivate, encourage, and teach other small business owners, like you, so that you are able to: put your business on solid footing and set yourself up for success; use tools and proven strategies that accelerate profitability and create a better quality of life; and effectively plan for long-term growth and viability!
You don't have to go through the stress and frustration of figuring all of this out on your own. Let us help you change the status quo!
We know that you, as a small business owner, are aspiring to become the owner of a big business, and fast! You are striving to create VIABILITY, SOLVENCY, and LONGEVITY one day, and one customer, at a time.
Whether you’re a start-up company running purely on sweat equity, or looking to fast-track or scale your more seasoned business for greater profitability, our PRISMA Community can help you leverage your resources and relationships to take your company to the next level!
We've been inspired and encouraged by our PRISMA Community Members and the people we've met through our appearances as we traveled across the country this past year.
We were able to understand their goals, motivations, and challenges as small business owners; to find out what they needed to feel empowered and to be successful; and to share our story of acceptance, our mission of change, and our vision for the future.
Imagine, as we have, the impact on families, communities and society if all women were able to fulfill their complete breadth of human potential? Together we can make a difference!
