My Story


Hello and Welcome! 

I so appreciate you stopping by to see who I and my team are. I love all things branding, marketing, strategy and creating for both personal and business brands since I was 15 years old. You see I “get to” do what I love, which doesn’t feel like work at all. It is a blessing and I am grateful to all those who I have had the pleasure of working with me to build my business. As I don’t take it for granted. 

But there is another side of me, which I also “get to” be a mentor to hundreds of women and young girls locally and abroad on personal mastery, self-love and specifically topics on Mental Health in relation to Abuse, Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Human Trafficking and Trauma. I get to do this through my non-profit, Be. You! Global Foundation. 

Elyshia received her Bachelors of Science from Albany State University (1996) in Albany, Georgia and her MBA from Strayer University in 2005 in Marketing. She has one adult son who plays professional basketball overseas.

My Values & Beliefs

Self-Mastery (Empowering)

Because I beleive in knowing who you are, you are able to control you, your brand and your business. When you intentional about personal brand and who you are at your core, your foundation won’t be faulty. 

Intelligence (Educating)

As a life-long student and learner, I am always excited about learning something new, I want to give it away by educating others. Knowledge is something no one can take it away from you. 

Relationships (Engaging)

We cannot live in this world without relationships, which is imperative in life, and in business. Building and having healthy relationships is key, I am always engaging with individuals I never met.
