About

I’m Tonya, a top leading female innovator who works with small businesses to achieve faster results by simplifying their financial management systems, radically changing their business’ survival, creating more time and money to have the business they’ve always dreamed of, without having to be an accountant.

I know that having your financial management systems is imperative for business survival, no matter how scary it is, but more importantly, I know that you don’t have to do it alone. 

In 2020, I created D.E.F.Y. Consulting Group, to help small businesses with financial management and strategic planning for business survival. I created The Survive. Thrive. Scale Up Your Business™ program. I have launched three successful small businesses, am the author of several eBooks, and the new upcoming book, “My Mama said, “Mind Your Business” …, And I Finally Listened!” 

I hold certifications in MBTI, Franklin Covey, DiSC, and the Department of Defense (DoD) Financial Management Level II, and DAWIA Level III. I hold a Bachelor’s in Public Relations from Saint Augustine’s College and have a Masters in Accounting from Strayer University.

Outside of coaching and consulting, I am a believer in “Good JuJu”, Karma, and humanitarianism. A percentage of our proceeds support many non-profit organizations. I’m humorous, relatable, love to travel, laugh, and be “that” mom to my son. I currently reside in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX Metroplex.

Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.

– William Durant
