What we're about

Black Brilliant and Successful in Phoenix, was created for those that want to commune with like-minded, positive, movers and shakers in the black community.

- For those that find out about events, after they've come and gone.
- For those that want to support our community by showing up.
- For those that want to take their activism off social media and be present and have your voice heard.
- For those that enjoy the company of others that look like them.
- For those that want to be in the know
- those that want to meet new people
- For those that are new to the valley, or have been here a while

But mostly, for those that are either Black, Brilliant or Successful and live in Phoenix and want to be surrounded by others of the same caliber.

Not all events posted will be hosted by us. This group will be used to share information that is happening VALLEY WIDE, so you can stay informed as to what other Black, Brilliant and Successful people are doing. You may see us partner with other groups because that's how we should be supporting each other and getting the word out about what's happening locally.

If you want to host a meetup, let us know.

If you know of an event other members may be interested in, let us know.

If you want to go to an event, but do not want to go alone, let us know.

This group is LIKE NO OTHER GROUP ON MEETUP, because it belongs to the people. To the Black, Brilliant and Successful people, that live in Phoenix!

If you've been looking for a group of professional people, making moves, supporting business, having fun, intellectual conversations, talking business, having lunch, politically conscious, community-oriented, and empowering ...You've found us!

This group is for both men and women that want to see Phoenix, as the 5th largest city in the country, stand up and act like it. We have to come together, work together, and be together. No more of this west side vs. east side, or north vs. south, just people that want to get along and work together to make our community great.

We're open to event suggestions, I'm dying to get some black ladies on the golf course :)

Manifest Your Vision with a Vision Board

1130 the restaurant


If you've ever attended one of my Vision Board Party's you know you're in for a treat. There have been amazing connections made, quick manifestations reported (yeah...like 6 months!), good times, great food, and they're full of inspiration. If you're looking for an event where you're going to just sit around, cut out pretty pics and slap them on a board...let me tell you now. This isn't for you. We're all about action!! What's the point of a pretty picture when there's no action behind it? The Manifest Your Vision Board Workshop is for ACTION-DRIVEN individuals who are ready to do the work to make things happen. I, along with my special guests, will help each person in attendance come up with their plan of action to start living the real life they're creating on their boards. We don't just cut and paste. Every individual will leave equipped with tools to make their goals manifest in 2019! You’ll get clarity when setting your life, business or career, and personal goals. Your customized vision board will be your roadmap to your DESTINY. We’ll give you insight into what has worked for us. We won’t tell you what we've "heard" works...We'll tell you what we KNOW works. This full-day workshop will provide useful techniques that inspire, evoke new thoughts, and transform lives. This workshop is useful to anyone that has a vision and a desire to fulfill it. We believe that the difference between realizing your dreams and not is a decision. During this workshop, we delve into the reasons why you have not reached your full potential and challenge you to develop a plan to remove the roadblocks. This workshop is also for those that are walking in their destiny and want to partake in a fun-filled time networking and making their vision visible on their vision board. It’s all about living the life that you dream about. This will definitely be an afternoon full of self-discovery and I myself will make sure everyone turns their mogul engines on!
