Brief Biography

Dr. Butler is the founder/CEO of Over The Goal Women’s Business Academy for Entrepreneurs and micro business owners. The purpose of the Academy is to enhance the

life of urban women business owners through training, coaching and education that enables them to be a force for social good. In addition to strengthening women through economic development, and advocacy that creates stronger thriving families in a changing world. Female owned enterprises are steadily growing all over the world, contributing to household incomes and growth of national economies The stats for the United States show that Women-led businesses employed 10.1 million workers and accumulated $1.8 trillion in receipts in 2019. However, women still face human, physical, and social constraints that limit their ability to grow their businesses, and therefore OGWBA exist to be a game changer in this narrative.

The Academy will partner and collaborate with other nonprofits that focus on urban female entrepreneurs and business owners. OGWBA is about building a smart community of Entrepreneurs. What does that mean? Building a community that leverages the smart use of technologies to benefit entrepreneurs so that they thrive economically and have a positive impact on family and the society surrounding their lives; because our and the future of others depend on the sustainable work we do today.
