DeAndrea started off doing small Vision Board parties in her salon around 2014.

People were constantly calling and emailing DeAndrea, asking “when is the next vision board event?”But when her business partner passed away suddenly at 33 years young, DeAndrea decided to pause her salon, and take a mental break. After much prayer, training, research, and preparation; DeAndrea founded and launched The Vision Board Tour.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
So, the death of my business partner was definitely not easy. My friends and family thought I was out of my mind for closing my salon in the prime of making a whole lot of money.
The transition into coaching was a huge mindset shift too. I have been giving out so much business strategy and game for free because its what I love to do, that it was hard to put a price on it
I struggled with my prices and being able to decide who was not a good fit for my program.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I help entrepreneurs turn their creativity into cash flow by creating digital products like ebooks, courses, webinars, etc. What makes me different is I am all about the facts and getting straight to the point. No fluff.
What were you like growing up?
East Atlanta made me and Dekalb county raised me. I was born and raised half of my life in the Thomasville Heights community but used my aunt’s address to attend.
