*UPDATE* Creating A Successful Business w/Miko Branch

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 at 9:48 am

Last month was the HerAgenda panel on mastering creative careers. I was inspired to do something a little different, so I baked and cooked for the event. The “Chicken ‘n Waffles” I made were a hit! I was happy to hear such good feedback and I’m hoping for the same with the upcoming HerAgenda panel next week with Miko Branch of Miss Jesse’s!

Next month marks two special events, both involving the brains behind Rhonesha’s birthday is the 17th (go Aries!!) and on the 16th she will be hosting and moderating a panel discussion titled Mastering the Creative Career You Want.


The panel will include designer and illustrator Sophia Chang, Leah McSweeney, CEO of Married to the MOB, and interior designer Danielle Arps. I will be providing the food and sweet treats for the event. Yup, sweets and food! This will be the first HerAgenda event where I’ll be creating for more than just your sweet tooth. I’ll also be selling some special treats for those who want to take a bit of sweetness home!

Real Brown Girls Interview

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014 at 1:00 pm

A few weeks ago I was contacted by, a new blog which will feature and support brown, female entrepreneurs. Turns out, I’m all three of those things! I want to thank the ladies of Real Brown Girls for taking the time to find me and learn a little more about me and what it is that I’m trying to do with AssataBAKES.


Here’s a snippet from my interview:

How did you come to be an entrepreneur? What has the process been like for you?
I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I sold trinkets, cookies, and homemade candy to my classmates in junior high school. I began working for two large corporations when I was 15 and I’ve continued working ever since. Starting my baking business was just next on the list of goals to accomplish. The process has been more than I expected but I’ve appreciated every second of it. I expect that this will be one of many businesses that I’m involved in within the next 20 years. — via

Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me and to all of my new supporters. I’m so appreciative to you all and I thank you for hanging with me through this journey :)
