Our motto is "Motivating Women To Greatness"

"The Essential Women’s Movement" ( is a new network of African American women mentors who will uplift, empower and share information with other women, girls and boys. We will direct young boys to network with men in ‘ethical’ shadowing/mentoring businesses. 

Our massive mentorship program will be “service-oriented,” not “money-oriented,” where we will become “100% self-sufficient” in our dealings with each other as we grow and build “legitimate” businesses. We will especially focus on matching up “baby boomers” with “Generation X’s” and “Millennials.”

We will come up with action plans for the entire family by forming Masterminds, Brainstorming Sessions, Roundtables, Panel Discussions, Symposiums, Town Hall Meetings, and other serious meetings and conferences, as we provide “on-the-ground” and “virtual” training in the following areas:

• Goal Setting/Dream Mapping Workshops
• Personal Development Workshops (Self-Esteem, Etiquette, Grooming/Personal Hygiene, Financial Literacy, Home Buying, Relationship, Self Taught vs. Formal Education, etc.)
• Parenting Workshops (School Monitors and Tutoring Programs, Home Learning Centers, Neighborhood Bookclubs, Sistahood/Village Neighborhood Watch Programs, etc.)
• Natural and Holistic Health Training (Home, Community and School Gardening Projects, Food Co-ops and Food Coalitions)
• Business Workshops for Youth and Adults
• Article and Non-fiction Book Writing Workshops
• Workplace and Whistleblower Training
• Train the Trainer Workshops 

We will form a “mobile trainer’s network” for trainers who can travel from city to city. This new network will be located in every city. If you would like to be a part of this new network and be listed in our directory and give any of this training in your city, or if you would like to bring this training to your city, reach out to Cathy Harris at and join our mailing list at, or We just ask that you not be involved in any type or Network and Multi-Level Marketing venture (Pyramid Scheme), etc. or any other ‘unethical’ business practice.

This year I will be in these cities: Austin, TX, Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, Brooklyn, NY, and Philadelphia, PA. I am currently living in Dallas-Forth Worth (Irving, TX) but the headquarters for this new movement will be located in Austin, where I actually live. This is a national movement so join today. In April 2017, I will be spending 6 months in Columbus, OH so I will be available to hold events anywhere in the state of Ohio and surrounding areas so reach out to me and help bring me to your city.
