The Person and Passion Behind My Brand
Hello, I am Kesha Powell, CEO and Founder of LuvenSmilez Professional Business Consulting. I have 15+ years’ experience working in an office setting and 10+ years as a social service case manager. I have acquired experience in the confidential collection of data for entry, case (client) management software, project management and administrative solutions. Throughout my career, I’ve always had an interest for encouraging individuals to overcome obstacles to excel in personal and professional growth. When business owners are armed with a comprehensive list of resources I believe that success is imminent. Through LuvenSmilez, I can fuel and focus my passion for knowledge on budding entrepreneurs.
LuvenSmilez was founded in August 2010 with the primary goal of bringing joy to children all over the world through the postal mailing of letters from Santa Claus. Sometimes I look back on my first business venture and wonder, "What was I thinking?"... *Smile* I was so excited to have a letter-writing business. Just thinking about how excited the kids would be opening their Santa Letters excited me. To date, I have yet to sell a letter, and that's okay. As time passed, my focus shifted as LuvenSmilez operated as a unique resource for Small Business ventures. I assisted small business owners with copywriting, identifying grants, brainstorming creative marketing strategies, creating training videos, and voicing corporate training videos and audiobooks. I focused on providing resources and aiding small business owners I knew personally. I was the resident “go-to” when a friend opened a business. My background is not in business. I do not have a business degree. My degree is in Community Services and Sociology. I am also a certified grant writer and notary. I am a student of learning and love to share what I’ve learned. I realized early on that researching resources came naturally to me; what surprised me was the creative way I applied those resources. In 2015, I realized LuvenSmilez's true potential and decided to open a Virtual Office. Today I am dedicated to helping small business owners grow their online presence.
Although the services LuvenSmilez provides have changed, the goal remains the same; “To change the lives of the people we impact one Smile at a time!”
