About Black Life Coach Summit defines summit as: any meeting or conference of top-level officials, executives, etc. That's exactly what Black Life Coach Summit is designed to be -- a meeting of like-minded, Black life coaches who own and operate small businesses while balancing other life responsibilities.


This summit will be especially useful for you if you are:

1)  a Black life coach who has been playing it safe in your business due to impostor syndrome or a lack of strategic direction

2) an aspiring life coach who is unaware of the practical and ethical considerations of starting a life coaching business

During the summit, you will hear from:

  • a lawyer who will discuss mitigating risk

  • experienced life coaches who will share lessons and insights

  • a serial entrepreneur who will discuss the importance of collaboration

Registration includes:

  • a catered lunch

  • a professional headshot by Graphic Artistry

  • two strategic work sessions led by Shereka Littlejohn Dunston  


Seating is limited, so register at your earliest convenience.
