I created The SelfMade Ladies school & platform because as a minority businesswoman for the last 15 years, I was craving a way to grow my empire in a structured, organized way without sacrificing like-minded, meaningful connections. And I knew other women of all colors felt the same! This new home of yours was built to honor the beautiful tapestry of all our backgrounds, stories, and needs. Women like us are usually the backbone of our families, communities, and workplaces...spending so much time supporting others—often at the expense of our own personal development. The SelfMade Ladies blueprint offers a new fresh approach and spiritual foundation for personal, entrepreneurial, and financial freedom. When we heal and free ourselves, our ability to unapologetically own our identity, our purpose, and our expertise will empower others, in turn manifesting the world we've all been waiting for. If you landed here, I know you're ready to answer the call!SEE HOW I CAN SUPPORT YOU!
WE BELIEVE IN A DIFFERENT WAY OF EXISTING IN THE WORLD
Back in 2015, we imagined a world where coming out of the closet
– a closet overflowing with anxiety, insecurities, guilt, shame, and entrepreneurial failures...
would be met with unconditional support, empathy, and fanfare for our jack of all trade ways. A world where you could launch a passion project as confidently and easily as snapping your finger. And not feel like a failure when business project #418 didn’t pan out quite like you hoped.
The SelfMade Ladies is a space for discovering our truest selves so that we can thrive in life or business or both, and to learn strategies for mindset + manifestation empowerment that no one else talks about. All of us in this community are here for you, rooting for your big and small wins, every step of the way.
Everything from our online school to our daily blog is a rehab for mindset reformation + reclamation, created with the intention to help facilitate change for the ideas and perceptions of what can or cannot be done as multi-passionate, multicultural, multifaceted beings.
The right way, according to “experts” is a game of follow the leader, chasing behind what everyone else has always done. But what about following a new path? One where you don't have your entire professional and creative life sorted out at the age of 17, one where your first career is not your last, and the definition of success is not who can hold on to one single idea for the rest of their life. We are rebellious rule breakers. As multi-passionates, we accept and love ourselves just the way we are. We don't follow straight lines, we color outside the lines and gallop freely. We do not chase behind other people's footsteps for approval, we are leaders that stand with pride and embrace the unknown. It isn't about having all the answers upfront, it's about asking creative exciting questions that will bring the world to its knees.
Way back in the day, before The SelfMade Ladies was on the tips of anyone's tongue, swarms of people began to take notice of my many highly publicized companies and started asking how I was able to build out these creative, fun ventures with my sanity intact. Especially being a young woman of color and solo founder without outside capital. I don’t come from a lot of money by any means, nor was I from a family of poverty, but I also never had amazing connections. Women were responding to the fact that I am an ordinary person climbing the ladder step by step with a holistic, joy-filled, adventurous spirited process that I have created for myself. I began consulting, coaching, and then leading local workshops since I was passionate about helping women to bring their projects to life and sharing my knowledge of how to get to the next level. I take at least ten steps a day to reach my goals. Others take ten a month. Some take ten a year. What do you do? It’s all about how you play your game. Are you ready for serious movement in your life? This isn’t for the dreamer—it’s for the doer.

But my mother calls me Titiboo. Yup. Since I was in junior high school. Imagine how that worked out for me in the schoolyard. No shame though, my mother is near and dear to my heart, so in her honor my first email address was...yep you guessed [email protected] Like a boss.
Can be found: Sharing way too much while somehow still having all my clothes on, over at @letitiaelizabeth
Rarely seen without: Premature grey hairs. My vintage, yet highly valuable iPhone 6 model. Ice cream in an overflowing bowl. Jeans that will disguise my muffin top. Lots-o-books. Like really, just way too many. It's a problem.
Best day of my life (to date): Jumping off a cliff on the island of Kauai into the depths of the ocean that had zero visibility #isurvived
Best day of my life (to come): Getting married to the love of my life, Idris Elba Obama, as soon as I invent the technology to make that possible.
Worst ten minutes of my life: That moment the wifi went out. There has never been rage like that in one human body.
Number of stamps in my passport: What number comes after a trillion??
Freakishly talented at: Holding my breath under water while doing a handstand but only in controlled bodies of liquid, of course.
Obsession: I said ice cream already right? Oh! And I love obsessing over ways of how NOT to go to the gym. See what had happened was...
Confession: Truth be told, I'm a worry wart. And not in that noble maternal kind of way. More in that anxiety sweaty kind of way where I'm known to sometimes overanalyze, overcomplicate, and overthink even the simplest of decisions. I see magical opportunities everywhere, which is wonderfully optimistic and resourceful . . . except for when I get paralyzed by possibility!
Sound like you too?
Is it worth it though, you may be wondering? Absofuckinlutely.
Mahalo! I’m Letitia, but you're a new friend so feel free to call me Leti.
I’m here to break YOU free from the status quo chains and show you a glimpse of what your life could look like on the other side of the sea. The one where you're not drowning in self-doubt, anxiety, and a million ideas clouding your ability to laser focus on a plan I like to call the Patriarchy Exit Plan.
Like you, there was a lot that dragged me down into the depths of uncertainty. It wasn't always gelato and rainbows!
I’ve struggled with episodes of debilitating depression, not to mention paralyzing social anxiety for a lot of my early adulting life. As a teenager, I even remember writing a suicide email to a family member, hoping my cry for help would fall upon receptive ears. I had to FIGHT to stay uplifted, confident, and inspired. I had to PUSH through every single obstacle, adversity, and naysayer who told me to my face that a life of gypsy soul freedom was no place for an educated young black lady with so much potential.
Those conforming traditionalist naysayers keep me fiery. And their limited beliefs skepticism keeps me humble.
These days, I am a full-time, globe-trotting, freedom-seeking SELF MAGIC activator. I have come home to myself. And so has my selfmde career path in the process.
Which is all a fancy-schmancy way of saying: I channel my own life experiences, hard-won business knowledge and manifesting superpowers to help women (like YOU!) dream bigger, demand better, and make braver choices so they too can live more freely while doing only the things they love to do.
