Hi! I'm Lee, Founder and Editor-in-Chief.

In 2014 I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I created Leading with Lee®.  But, I did know one thing for sure, and that was to awaken the passion I had inside to help emerging entrepreneurs further their dreams in life. I know what it's like to feel unsupported, to have a lack of resources, and to be turned away because no one cared about who I was or what I represented. Therefore, creating a platform that celebrates black owned businesses and personalities has been a true blessing. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY so I have seen the good and the bad. Not only do we celebrate boss millennials, young adults in underserved communities will be inspired by our success stories from people that look like them and are from neighborhoods the NEWS deem to be unsafe. It's amazing that I have positioned myself to create a platform that highlights and supports aspiring millennials from around the world as well as offer small business coaching.
