We had the good fortune of connecting with LUKESHIA WALKER and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LUKESHIA, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process behind starting my own business was based upon me desiring more for my family/life. After years of thinking that I was in my ideal career role, I realized that as a black woman in a male-dominated workplace, my worth was far greater and not being valued. As a woman in the workplace, I found that I was being paid much less and working ten times harder than my counterparts to prove I belong. It was obvious that someone else was trying to control my value and destiny. It took me years before the lightbulb went off – and when it did, I knew that it was time for me to start a new chapter in my life. This motivated me to start my own business. It came to fruition that my purpose is to help individuals. As a mother and a professional, I have always provided care, counsel and coaching. Low and behold, my experience led me to coaching. Now I coach with a purpose and passion to help others build the life they love.

What should our readers know about your business?
LW Coaching Institute offers coaching services to individuals and businesses. As a coach, I am committed to helping people to develop healthy, everyday habits in life and business.

I have progressed to where I am today by staying true to being well-rounded, determined and a dream chaser.

My journey has not been easy, but everything that I have experienced has made it all worth it.

My faith and dedication to succeed has kept me encouraged to overcome the challenges.

One lesson that I learned over the years is to keep a balance between my personal and work life. I like to suggest this to my clients and colleagues, as it truly does impact your success.

I would like the world to know that I have arrived. It is my passion to encourage and inspire people to grow and glow to their highest potential.
