If you do not know me, let me share a little about myself….
I am the daughter of two loving and hard-working parents who provided a warm nurturing home for me, and are in part the reason I am who I am today. I will be eternally grateful to them, and pray to never disappoint them but only to honor them. I pray for my mother to have every resource available to her to continue her work as a servant leader to those who need her most. I pray that my father is pleased with my progress and how I continue to overcome obstacles and setbacks. Although he is no longer here, in the physical sense, I know that he is watching over me and our family. His spirit is a presence in my life always.
I am proud to be the big sister to a little sister (who is taller than me), who I pray for each day. I pray that God protects each step she takes. She has been blessed to do great things. I pray she sees this and expresses this in her speech, thoughts and deeds, and that she becomes the woman God intends. I also pray that God protects her and my nephew, who my sister was blessed to give birth to on October 31, 2017. I will strive every day to do my best to look out for my sister and my amazing nephew.
I am an entrepreneur and college professor.
I am working at living life to its fullest, sharing life experiences through mentoring, and helping others through genuine care and concern for their well-being. I am passionate about helping others help themselves. Professionally, I am interested in building relationships with prospective clients; and looking forward to connecting with more professionals, philanthropists and change agents throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Spiritually, I have been a believer and follower of Christ since birth. I can admit that I did go through stages in life where my belief was conditional and I would sometimes doubt God and Jesus. During those times I would follow man’s lead and my urges for instant gratification, which has always led to heartache.
I have had many ups and downs in my life, but I know that it is only because of God that I made it through. My successes are due to God’s will and grace. My failures are due to my stubbornness, fear and refusal to follow Jesus. I’m a work in progress. Each day I strive to be more loving, kind, compassionate, graceful, forgiving, and giving to others. Each day I pray that God continues to mold me. Who I am spiritually and personally determines who I am and will be professionally.
Spiritually and through my “walk” I hope to connect with believers, non-believers, and conditional believers to share love, grace, dignity, respect, and mercy for all; not concerned with acceptance or conversion of my beliefs in God and His son Jesus Christ, but rather a concern that all mankind be treated with the care that we would individually hope and pray to receive.
No one is separate from God’s love and protection and by sharing these messages I hope that we all strive to freely give the gift of love to every man, woman, and child regardless of their age, sex, sexual orientation, skin color, race, nationality, religion, political beliefs and agenda, accomplishments or limitations.
Natasha Foreman MBA wears many hats. She is the CEO and Managing Consultant for Foreman & Associates, LLC, a management consulting and business support services firm. Natasha is the Co-Founder and Chief Global Strategist at Storiboard Nation LLC , a tech startup focused on connecting teens and young adults to positive role models around the world. She is also honored to serve as an Adjunct Instructor in the School of Business & Technology at Purdue University Global (formerly Kaplan University) and through the Business Management Department at Atlanta Technical College.
Natasha started her first business at the age of 10, and is extremely passionate about youth entrepreneurship. Natasha has been working with various organizations over the past 20 years to help build, nurture, and support future leaders and entrepreneurs. She also dedicated two years to design, pilot, and build youth entrepreneurship program, HOPE Business In A Box, for global non-profit, Operation HOPE.
For over 25 years Natasha has devoted her life to serving others in under-served and underrepresented communities, and has received numerous awards from schools and organizations around the United States for her work.
Since 1989 Natasha has been a guest speaker at various business, community and educational events for youth and adults. Natasha serves on the board of several organizations, mentors several young women and men ages 14-34, and works to serve as a sponsor for their future endeavors. Throughout the year you can find Natasha in organizations and classrooms speaking about business, entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, self-esteem and self-empowerment, financial literacy and dignity, her life story and the challenges she had and still overcomes.
Natasha freely gives her time and other resources to various organizations, schools, and individuals– providing a hand up not a hand out to those who desire an opportunity toward self-sufficiency, self-empowerment, and a life as a change agent. Natasha is happiest every time she gets the opportunity to speak to and tutor children and young adults…especially when she sees their eyes “light up” when they finally understand something they initially thought they “couldn’t do”.
A Southern California native, Natasha earned her B.A. in Black Studies (Africana Studies) from California State University, Long Beach, and her MBA with a Marketing Specialization from Kaplan University. She holds a Post-Masters Certificate in College Teaching, and is currently completing her dissertation for her PhD in Organization and Management with a specialization in Management Education—with the focus of combining theory with real-world application in both the c-suite and the classroom.
“If small business is the lifeline of our nation, then we must educate generations of current and future business owners and managers so that we can continue to thrive and lead globally.” ~ Natasha
