Our Vision

Earlene Taylor’s vision is that all young women, if given the right tools can become extremely successful at an early age.  She hopes to provide hands on training for young women so that they can see the necessity for them to become business owners and successful entrepreneurs.  Her desire is to teach young women/girls the principles so that they can “Be all that they can be.”
