We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Yolanda “Cookie” Snipes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Yolanda “Cookie”, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is that I pour into the purpose of others. As an educator of 23 years, I have spent my adult life empowering, encouraging, and educating youth to reach their full potential in education. As CEO of LeeSadie Production and Media Group, each project has been to assist individuals in obtaining their dreams through mentoring and by providing a platform in media production on different levels. As the Founder and Publisher of Godlock Magazine and Executive Producer of Leaders to Legacy, we have provided a platform of influence and legacy. All of the endeavors together have provided me the opportunity to be successful because my equation includes other variables -People!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
LeeSadie Productions and Media Group along with Godlock Magazine and Leaders to Legacy are here to provide platforms to assist others in achieving their God-given potential through the utilization of their special gifts and talents. We are faith-based and here to be a purposeful influence over a popular one. I am the proudest of our Leaders to Legacy initiative which was launched in 2019 in which we honored individuals from all walks of life leaving a legacy in our community. Our Lifetime Achievement Award named after Dr. Booker T. Poe honored Judge Alford Dempsey, Dan Moore, Sr, and Alexis Scott. The event is also where I received my Proclamation from the City of Atlanta Government Council presented by Councilman Michael Julian Bond.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend was visiting the area our first stop would be Apex Museum, then Georgia Aquarium with dinner at Mangoes Jamaican Restaurant

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to Attorney Brian Poe of Georgia Injury Attorneys. Attorney Poe has been influential support and a constant source of encouragement for me the last few years as I sharpened my focus with Godlock Magazine and Leaders to Legacy.
