After spending over ten years in corporate America, helping to build multimillion-dollar businesses as the "go-to numbers girl," Octavia decided to ditch the 9 to 5 in 2011 and build her dream business instead. With a laptop, a busted printer, and nominal savings, but full of passion, Octavia embarked on a journey of providing small businesses with advanced financial management support, strategies, and solutions. Her passion led to the birth of Say Yes To Profits.
After leaving her corporate 6-figure career to become a full-time entrepreneur, Octavia experienced a period she titled "Broke, Busted, & Disgusted - Breakthrough.". During this challenging time, Octavia was completely broke and broken. From building her dream home from the ground up to one month away from foreclosure. Octavia wondered, "how could this be happening"?
She returned to corporate America part-time while rebuilding her business from scratch. Within 14 months, she reemerged as a full-time six-figure business owner, scaling to seven figures during COVID-19. She is a walking success story! As of today, Octavia teaches business owners how to get their finances in order so that they cross the seven-figure mark within three years of working with her and her team. She has helped over 90% of her clients grow between 30% and 350% within 12 months.
Octavia has been quoted in Forbes and featured in ENSPIRE Magazine, Voyage ATL, Afro Tech, Inuit, and many more. Selected as a top 50 accountant in North America for two consecutive years and an award-winning best-selling author and professional speaker Octavia combines over 20 years of business, accounting, and financial experience.
