Little Black Desk Academy is a small support community for women who desire to help others succeed.
Women who want to become better leaders so they can better serve their clients, industry, and teams.
Women who enjoy creating conversation and sharing their experiences to make the community richer.
Women who want a simpler approach to social media and value meaningful connections.
“The conversations that we have are thoughtful, and push us to have deeper conversations about the heart of what it takes to run a small business.”– Karina Mora-Metts
If you are looking for a membership community with lots of members, a continuous feed, and immediate responses you won’t find it here. The members of Little Black Desk Academy check-in 1-2x/week and the rest of the time they are working in their business.
We are here to be a resource and support system for you. Not something else to manage.
Enrollment is closed for 2019

Most recently I enjoyed the live chat on blogging where I was introduced to the idea of audio blogs and what great yet simple content they can be. I was able to create and upload an audio blog that week. I’ve since recorded coaching calls using Google voice for audio blogs. Far less intimidating than a podcast and had I not attended the live chat that day it would have taken me way too long to find this out!Stephanie Wagner | FoodCoachMe
