What it do, I’m JPink


As a Single Mom to the 4 JKids and proud BiBi to one JBaby, I’ve navigated life’s trenches, from the struggles of single motherhood to the harsh realities of being homeless and utterly broke, busted, and disgusted. Through these challenges, I’ve honed a no-nonsense, no-fluff approach to life and business.

My passion and dedication to seeing Black Businesses not only compete in the marketplace- but become successful and THRIVE- led me to create Thumbprint Collective. The Collective was founded on the principles of the Sliver Rights Movement– using economic means to uplift and advance our own ethnicity and culture. With over 13 years of entrepreneurial experience, my journey has been a testament to resilience, resourcefulness, and the unwavering belief in the power of Black businesses. Over the last few years, I realized that it really is Black Business Over Everything.

My ultimate mission extends beyond monetary gains; it’s about ensuring Black Businesses not only compete but thrive in the marketplace. Success, to me, is measured not just in financial prosperity but in the ownership and amplification of their voice, power, and unapologetic Blackness.

Through my roles, both personal and professional, I am committed to changing the narrative, dismantling barriers, and empowering Black businesses to reach new heights. The journey is undoubtedly challenging, but it’s the journey that shapes the narrative—let’s rewrite it together.




A No-Nonsense Speaker

Ms. Pink Speaks

Black Businesses are not only necessary, they are revolutionary and the key to Black Wealth. Because of this, I overstand the importance of bringing high-value content that ain’t filled with a bunch of BS and Googleable tips- especially when it comes to empowering, transforming, and impacting Black Business Owners. This is why I am dedicated to providing Black Business Owners with their authentic BLACKprints to success. My signature talks can add immense value to your events and provide your audience with the knowledge, strategies, and motivation needed to take their businesses to the next level.

My three signature talks that cater to the unique needs and challenges faced by Black Business Owners are:

“Plot Twist: Strategy is the Answer to EVERYTHING!” A raw conversation about how to solve every problem you face in business, from limited funds to pricing.

“Why Did You Forget About Me?” A candid conversation about business basics that far too many businesses are overlooking and failing because of.

“MOMpreneuring is hard enough…stop trying to balance this ish.” A real and honest conversation about walking in purpose, setting priorities and creating a business that works for your life and not the other way around.

If you’re interested in exploring how I can contribute to the success of your events or community, please book a speaking consultation HERE. Let’s work together to empower and elevate Black Business Owners on their entrepreneurial journeys.
