Hi, I’m Shontavia

A lawyer, creator, speaker & entrepreneur committed to helping you create a business based on the vision you have for your life.

If you’re looking for a business blueprint that starts from scratch, you found it. Let’s make it happen.

My work, and this site, is dedicated to inspiring entrepreneurs to create a vision, build a brand, and start the business they’ve been dreaming of.


In this amazing (and free) mini-course, you’ll learn the three steps you need to take to get your ideas out of your head into an actionable plan.

Success Stories

Shontavia was integral in establishing the foundation of my business. Her clear and direct approach helped me assess value and visualize growth capacity. She also made things very relatable.

-Sherrica Sims, Founder of GBG Productions

Shontavia is truly phenomenal in terms of her abilities to creatively cultivate brands of all kinds. Her own brand speaks for itself! Looking forward to seeing LVRG Nation continue to grow.

-Cary Martin Shelby, Founder of the Found Daughter Project

If you have an invention and have no idea where to start, Shontavia can definitely guide you in the right direction. When I reached out, I wasn’t ready to share much detail but that didn’t stop her from helping me. She gave sound advice on how to move forward.

I am forever grateful for Shontavia’s guidance! Because of her, my prototype is finished.

And, my invention will be protected soon!

-Ayesha Lindsey, Founder of Family Reunion Solutions

During our sessions, I get so much knowledge on how to protect my organization that I leave with assurance and confidence to move forward with my long-term goals. We were able to hit the ground running after working with Shontavia.

We also got our 501(c)(3) status, which is a huge milestone for my non-profit! 

Shontavia completely removed the intimidation factor!

-Kim Wayne, Executive Director of Jewels Academy

After I created my Facebook group, another person claimed they owned a trademark in that name and wanted us to shut it down. Shontavia helped me strategize on how to keep the name, and it worked!

-Joycelin Randle, Founder of Natural Girls Rock! Facebook Group

As I transitioned from public servant to public speaker, I worked with Shontavia to create a strategy focused on my strongest assets with growth in mind. As a result I was able to increase my client base and maximize profits by more than 200%. If you are looking to take your business to the next level, I highly recommend her services.

-Jil Littlejohn, Professional Speaker and Leadership Expert

What to do when you’re not ready to start your business

Starting a business was something that started for me slowly. I didn't have the Silicon Valley-esque 2000 mph journey of dropping out of college and toiling in a garage until raising a million dollars in VC funding. I thought about it, and thought about it, and...

Conferences need women speakers like you

Nearly a decade ago, I went to a conference for people wanting to establish themselves as "experts" in their field. I was pretty excited because this particular conference was, and still is, a major event in the industry. There were probably 7,000 or so people...

The importance of going to conferences

I recently came to grips with the fact that I am about 90% an extroverted introvert. I did not know this kind of introvert existed, but once I did a little research, I realized that this is basically my tribe. I won't bore you with all the details, but extroverted...

Getting Everything Done? Nope.

I don't know about you, but there have been many days where I wake up and before I know it the day is completely over. I'm amazed at how quickly the hours can go. Between a full time job, my company (which is another full time job, just on early mornings, nights and...

Have you ever been pitching your company to an investor and overheard yourself and think, "I'm really killin' this shit. Like... I'm really in here right now."? That just happened to me and it's because of ALLL the previous meetings that helped prepare me. Progress is a process.

Love this story about Dr. Lakeysha Hallmon, an Atlanta #entrepreneur creating opportunities for +800 businesses in her community through @market_atl.


I definitely think "being ready" is a myth. Even so, it's nerve-wrecking to talk on huge, bold projects with little more than a wing and a prayer.
