We are O.NE. – JoAnna LeFlore

We Are O.NE. Series. Let’s make this a place where I get to be me and you get to be you. Let’s make this a place where together, we are O.NE. Put your hands in the middle and share your story.

My uniqueness spawns from a mesh of an African-American experience with a creative knack and community activism lens.

In other words, I am proud of my heritage, active in the arts and motivated to empower the people I encounter on a daily basis. I’m a connector of people and resources. I’m a storyteller. I’m sista with some style and a forward-thinking mindset, you better ask somebody!

I grew up with the outlook that it takes a village to raise a child. I believe in every aspect of this motto because it helped shaped who I am today. I am driven by the idea of helping others and using my gifts and talents to do so. I truly believe that we all need each other if we are going to create a legacy worth passing on to the next generation. If you think you can do it by yourself, I will bet you a thousand slices of sweet potato pie that you’re wrong!

My deeds are hard to list because they may not be as tangible as others. I’m the woman who works behind the scenes to make sure my friends, collaborators and others I work with are organized, disciplined and thoughtful about their work. I make sure there is consistency in the way that others promote the good they are doing in the world. Some people call that a publicist or consultant.

In my eyes, I’m the big sister that’s asking you questions and helping you get your life together. I don’t mind it that I may sound bossy while doing so, because I truly care about the growth of others around me.

We all have a greatness to achieve and I’m here to help create efficient processes and strong communications plans to get you there.
