I worked with Chaka on developing a strategic business plan for my new business endeavor. Chaka's guidance was invaluable as she walked me through all the various areas of the business plan to identify a strategy to help me grow my business. After leaving our working session, I had a very clear idea of where I wanted my business to go, why that direction made sense, and how I was planning to get there. As a sole proprietor, having Chaka and Future Focus as part of my team has made me feel much more confident about my business. It is such a benefit to work with someone who understands my business and is cheering my success. I highly recommend Chaka and Future Focus!
Chaka Blackman-Lee recently assisted me in developing a business model with a secure foundation. Her work ethics, mannerisms, and overall business perspective created a healthy environment where I felt comfortable expressing the pros and cons of my vision as well as completing it. Chaka is passionate about helping others create their visions into living models; I recommend her to anyone seeking to put their vision together.
