Client Testimonials


"We were referred to Jill in 2012.  We had a vision to give back to pregnant teens and young moms since we were both young, single moms at one time.  At the initial meeting Jill explained her approach in turning an idea into an actionable mission.  She taught us how to strategically plan and execute creating our brand, developing a kick-butt board, developing unique programs that are needed in the area we wanted to serve, establishing lucrative partnerships, and securing funding.  Shortly after we formed our nonprofit we applied and received 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, which allowed us to establish a partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools.  Since our launch almost 10 years ago our nonprofit, Lean On Us Unity, has spiraled into a multi-million dollar empire.  In addition to all of the things we are still gleaning from Jill, we are a well-established venture that started with an IDEA.  Jill is the best out there when it comes to developing nonprofits!!"

"A vacation to Jamaica CHANGED MY LIFE.  I thought I was going there to do self-care, but ended up finding MY PURPOSE.  Just a few blocks from my resort I discovered so many people in basic need of FOOD.  I started by giving a couple of dollars, but then returned home to Atlanta with a heavy desire to give in a bigger way.  I started a nonprofit, but wasn't sure what I was doing.  I came across Jill on Instagram.  I followed her for a while and listened to her LIVES, then I signed up for her ecourse.  She helped me structure my nonprofit and connect all of the dots.  Since taking her course I consult with her regularly.  I love her drive and energy, and all of her creative ideas."

"I have a full-time career and I am a full-time owner of a franchise boxing training facility, but I naturally LOVE helping people.  The vision of helping people kept pressing on me, but I didn't really know how I wanted to help.  Then I thought that it would be good to share my financial management experiences on how I started with poor spending habits to now being a successful entrepreneur.  I still didn't know how to start.  I prayed and I came across Jill on Instagram.  I signed up for her LIVE ecourse and within 30 days I had my nonprofit up and running.  Jill has taught me so much.  She knows the nonprofit world.

I am grateful to God for sending her my way."    

-- Taylur Avery, Founder, Financial Literacy for People of Color (FLPOC)

“ I created a nonprofit in memory of my father, Robert K. Jones, who lost his life to gun violence back in 1998.   It wasn't until I visited the woman who took my father's life in prison that I was able to forgive.  I felt liberated and free to honor his life.  I took Jill’s course a couple of months ago & it was absolutely phenomenal!! I learned a lot about strategic planning, fundraising & program development. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to start a nonprofit organization!”."

"I am Shelby Hicks and in my second year at the illustrious Hampton University.  My classmate, Kaitlyn, and I are the co-founders of a nonprofit called Inclusivity Inc.  Inclusivity was birthed as a result of my former basketball coach committing suicide without any signs of unhappiness.  Its our mission to educate the community on social, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health, and to provide a safe space to talk.  We had a vision, but were referred to Ms. Jill in 2020 to help turn our vision into a nonprofit. From Ms. Jill's IG Lives every morning, as well as her Instagram page and success stories we realized we needed to contact her. I reached out to her on DM and as soon as she responded her vibe was amazing! She recommended that we register for her ecourse.  The course provided us with everything we needed to know PLUS MORE. She met with us one-on-one, allowed us to ask questions, and gave us advice. One thing about Ms. Jill is that she's going to tell you what she thinks and she's going to be honest about it. January 11, 2021 Inclusivity became an official nonprofit!!! We are forever grateful for Ms. Jill."
