The LADIES Group NFP began as a Facebook group for women to gain control of their economic station by becoming financially literate, savvy savers and strategic investors. The idea of the group was to help remove monetary burdens through the promotion of economic self-sufficiency. L.A.D.I.E.S. is an acronym for Learning About Debt, Investments, and Economic Sustainability.
The group is the brainchild of Founder Niquenya Collins, or Coach Niquenya as she is best known, who is the President and CEO of Building Bridges Consulting, a small business consulting, executive coaching, and corporate training firm specializing in transforming dreamers into successful entrepreneurs and leaders into effective agents of change. Coach Niquenya is the founder of the Mindset Ministry which helps churches and other faith-based organizations improve their operations and financial outlook. She is also the Master Business Coach on the Success Team of The AC Green Show as well as a member and contributing writer to the Forbes Coaches Council.
The LADIES Group NFP was started out of Coach Niquenya’s own desire to regain control over her finances. A product of a single parent home, Coach Niquenya realized that she was repeating bad financial habits in her own life and was determined to stop the downward spiral of bad credit and poor money management before it could trickle down to her own children. No stranger to personal and professional development, Coach Niquenya realized that the best way to get her finances in order was to begin researching and teaching others.
We strongly believe that women are the catalyst for change in the world. They are the mothers, nurturers, lovers, mediators, planners, and dreamers. Women birth and raise the children and are wise counsel to their significant others.
Our mission is to increase the financial literacy and economic independence of female heads of households and their families worldwide. In these hard economic times, now more than ever, women need a place to develop and learn how to generate sustainable wealth. By focusing on the woman, we aim to transform households into financially savvy contributors to society. Our vision is to create a world in which poverty lines diminish.
