DÉJA COLEY

Entreprenuer + Nonprofit Leader

BIO

Hi! I’m Déja Coley, an Entreprenuer and Nonprofit Leader with extensive experience in self-esteem development, financial management, and real estate management.

As a young child, I was described as a confident little girl filled with ambition and grit. Though my talkative attribute usually landed me in undesirable predicaments, I was always willing to take the risk to say what I had to say.

It’s that type of drive that landed me in the workforce at only 12 years old! Exposure to the working world so young certainly had it’s advantages and its challenges.

I learned so many vital skills some being time management, money management, communication, and adaptability. Every paycheck, my mom made me save 20% which ultimately enabled me to save enough to purchase my first car at 16 years old.

But, I also faced barriers mentally. As I began exiting my pre-teen years, I began to struggle with my self-esteem. I perceived that people had negative opinions about me so I searched for something that would gain me the approval and acceptance I was seeking. I rooted my worth in achievement and material things until I became numb and tired of people pleasing. In the most rebellious way I knew how, I did things my way or no way.

Immediately following high school, I enrolled at Old Dominion University where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering. As the only Black Woman in my class, this experience was just as rewarding as it was challenging. But, my hard work earned me roles at several Fortune 500 companies such as ADP and S&P Global, as well as Fortune 200 companies to include Dominion Energy and Nordstrom.

During my senior year, it somehow came to me that I struggled with low self-esteem and attaching her worth to achievement and material things. While I was just learning this about myself, I couldn’t bear inaction. Subsequently. I founded a nonprofit organization, Girls Like Me, to address low self-esteem and self-efficacy in teen girls.

A year later, I established a residental property management firm to bridge gaps within the property management industry between residents and homeowners.

Years later, I began to consider my own financial success. I was only 24 years old and has achieved an 800 credit score. I recognized the need to contribute to a financially failing society. Employing years of research and analysis of self-esteem, I learned that the widespread financial failure was due to lack of self-esteem in adults.

Then, I built a monetary beliefs agency to help people change their habits and thoughts so they can be empowered to live in their truth, feel fulfilled, and be happy with their progress.

Today, I operate 2 businesses, 1 nonprofit, and serve on a nonprofit Board of Directors. I’ve been recognized as one of Boss Media’s 100 Women Sitting at the Table which highlights the untold stories of women creating pathways for others, and changing generations to come.

I’m a proud big sister, daughter, granddaughter, niece, and furmom to 2-yr old Frenchi, Kimmie. I spend my free time spending time with family, touring wineries, reading, and volunteering within my community.

I believe we’re all here on purpose and we can’t just take up space. Our place here in this world isn’t free. We all must do our part.
