Learn how to take your Instagram from blah to brand. I will teach you my personal strategies to create impactful content, consistently post with purpose, and add value so that you can grow your brand, gain followers, build a community and make money with something you love.

does your Instagram do this?

  • Tell a story?
  • Add value to peoples lives and make them want to take action?
  • Have visual consistency?
  • Make you money and land you partnerships?
  • Give you a reason to spend hours on the ‘gram?

Or are you just liking, “getting inspiration” and passively consuming for hours?


Once I stopped sitting on my skillset and started ‘grammin with purpose,

Here's what happened to me:

  • Got laser focused and started putting out meaningful engaging content
  • Recognized for my value, and paid to do what I love
  • Walked in my purpose, impacting lives & inspiring others to follow their dreams
  • Built and engaged with a loyal community of supporters, inspirational and like-minded people
  • Confidently pitched to brands and charged my worth (triple than others with more followers than me)
  • Worked with dream clients & featured by magazines like OPRAH!
  • Hired to share my knowledge & skills
  • Ownership of my own time and the ability to work from anywhere in the world and create my own career path.
  • Created, sold and scaled valuable products, goods, & services

'GRAM WITH PURPOSE & Coaching Reviews

here’s what the tribe has to say:

Mental health and wellness advocate


At this point in my journey I recognized that there was more to life than what we as humans allow ourselves the space to appreciate. I quit my job, cut my hair and planned to move to Spain. All of this and I still didn't know how to turn my passions into a career to fully live the life I was gifted with. I needed direction. I needed a person of color, a woman doing the damn thing in the position to develop and grow others. So I joined Jakiya's Course. TBH I don't remember how much it cost because not once did I feel I didn't get my money's worth. I was charged to think through my passions, inspired to acknowledge how to turn that into a career with guided steps and examples of that happening to people we often see on our explore page. Her course gave me the tools to identify what she calls as an avatar, the target market and how to conceptualize the parallels between what we offer and how that can service masses. The option to take advantage of 1on1 consultations left me with manageable commitments on a calendar, the support of gold and a handful of resources, each time. I am thankful. The Blue Bike is what it is today due to The Traveling Fro and the curator Jakiya Brown.

I’m so grateful to have met Jakiya earlier this year and I know it’s the universe working it’s magic because people come into your life for a purpose. I’ve joined her collective tribe and have taken part in her course. The advice and content she provides her clients is invaluable! Her strong background in marketing and brand development is really useful because that elements are needed in any industry. If you are seeking to know your audience and leave a lasting impression, Jakiya will help with that. In the time that I’ve worked with her, I can see my mindset start to shift and focus more on how I want to start solidifying my image and portray who I am and what I want my audience to know me for.

Learning how Jakiya was able to take her blog and social media and turn into a business was helpful for me.

I went back and forth deciding whether I should make this investment in myself. I think part of me was nervous to fully commit myself and the fear of failing if I do decide to “go all in.” I have previously invested in another course that unfortunately wasn’t worth my time, as the course was really set up for basic Instagram users, so I was fearful about the same thing occurring. I can honestly say that my investment in Jakiya’s course has been worth every penny, thus far. The videos and worksheets not only teach you how to successfully build a brand, but they make you take a step back and reevaluate your core brand values and the ultimate goals are for you and this brand. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get serious about building a brand and who is willing to invest the time and work into building your brand the right way.
Wins: content consistency, community growth, enhanced treavel story telling on @thevirtualpassport

Jakiya's positive attitude and consistent messaging about how to strengthen your brand and taken purposeful actions has really helped me move forward with my goals. I had a horrible couple of years being disrespected and mentally abused by someone I thought was my friend. Moving from that head-space into the community she has created where collaboration and support are the cornerstones has opened my heart and creative mind back up again. I set a goal to rebrand a few months ago and was completely stuck. After starting the course, I decided on my new business name, have already gained dozens of new Instagram followers, made my new Facebook page, and created & launched my website. I feel ready to find new clients, apply for opportunities, and continue being happy every day in the work I'm doing.
Wins: website launch, solidified business name, gained new followers, and confidence in finding new clients.
