Building A Purpose-Driven Business

It's your time.

Business Launch Prep School (BLPS) is a faith-based 6-month small business start-up development course specifically for women who want to create purpose-driven service-based businesses.

COVID-19 made one thing clear.... that you can't rely on a traditional 9-5 to provide you all that you need in life. 

You can't rely on it to pay you all that you're worth. 

You can't rely on it to fill your spirit and your soul with joy from working in your God-given purpose and gifts. 

You can't rely on it to be steady for you in times of stress and trouble. 

And you know what.

You're not supposed too. 

Now is the time to answer your calling.

As women, we make everyone and everything a priority, often placing our deepest dreams and desires on the back burner. 

We decide to wait until the kids grow up or when everything in our life is perfectly in its place. 

When it's time for us to place ourselves first, we say that we don't have enough time or resources. 

We blame the kids for being too rowdy or our spouses for not being supportive enough. 

We ignore that pull and deep desire to serve a higher purpose. We continuously push it off until tomorrow. 

Well, 2020 proved that tomorrow isn't promised. We need to live our purpose-driven lifes today.

And guess what! That deep desire to serve a greater purpose and have full autonomy over the work you do was planted in you by God.  

It's high time to listen to your intuition and start your purpose-driven business this year. 

Are you still unsure?

Listen to what our clients are saying about BLPS.


What I'm not going to do is promise you instant fame and fortune overnight. 

That's not my job or decision. 

What I will promise you is that if you do the work, 

You will be able to launch your purpose-given business in 6-months. 

Here is the curriculum to prove it.

US Airforce Veteran, Mom, Wife, Entreprenuer, and Athlete

Amanda Beauchamp

Before working with Rolande, I was frustrated with no one to really listen to and provide objective feedback. After my first few sessions, I learned how to think through the noise in my mind; that I truly knew what I wanted to do. She helped me modify my thinking so I would doubt myself less and instead take action. I learned it was okay to make shifts in the plan and not to feel insecure about it. My time with Rolande resulted in a laid-out plan, peace of mind in the process (journey), and confidence in my decision-making.
