NON-BS BIZ DEVELOPMENT & HUSTLE
PROGRAM PURPOSE &
Business Development Program
Introducing Business Development with Chaymeriyia: My mission is to empower brand founders in any industry to eliminate excuses that hinder personal and business growth. For new or veteran entrepreneur, I understand that starting and scaling a business can be overwhelming and confusing. That's why I'm here to provide quality mentorship through guidance, communication, and non-BS accountability.
My program is designed to help you determine where you are in your business journey and create a game plan to expand and grow. I don't just talk the talk, I get to work alongside you. Having raised over $9M and generated over $14M across my startups, I'm determined to help other entrepreneurs apply the same principles to building and scaling their businesses.
While I have a passion for the e-commerce space, I understand that every business is unique. My expertise also extends to apparel brands, having generated over $700,000 in sales in just one year in this industry. I believe that with the right guidance, support, and accountability, any entrepreneur can achieve success. Let me help you turn your hustle into a thriving business.

Funding + Pitch Deck
Over the last few years, I have raised over $10M for my brands combined. Getting funding is a consistent process and a boost to getting started goes a long way. In this mentorship, eligible mentees will receive my brand's pitch deck and resources and platforms to raise funding for their brand.
Getting press and putting my brand in front of millions has helped boost my brand's credibility thanks to the amazing writers that chose to do pieces on my startups. Features in Afrotech, Black Enterprise, and Yahoo have all done some dope things for my me and brand and I want to share these same resources with you.
ALREADY STARTED? NO WORRIES!
Getting You Forward
Even if you have already started your business, that's ok. Mentorship isn't always about helping you get started, it's also about keeping you moving forward. The meet and greet between us will help me understand where you are and what we need to work on. Your 12-week program is all about working on a game plan to get you where you want to be in your business.
SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR + HUSTLE ENTHUSIAST
You may have seen me or companies in Yahoo, AfroTech, ABC, TravelNore, and many other places. Now even though I have 2 multi-million dollar startups, I don't teach you to make "millions" or make promises of unlimited wealth-- everyone applies the game differently.
I teach steps, strategies, and guide entrepreneurs through processes that I've learned personally that's helped me get my brands where they are today. I believe in keeping it simple and straightforward. In this age of social media and digital, we have the unlimited potential to apply anything and find success with the right guidance and direction.
How it Works
For 12-weeks I will meet with each Mentee once per week for 12-weeks in 1-2 hour sessions. Understanding that everyone has varying schedules, once you have joined, we will spend time determining the best schedule for you to ensure it's effective for us both to get things done!
