Do you dream of building a business empowering and educating youth?

If you dream of making a living from working with children and adolescents then you’re in the right place! is all about inspiring, teaching and supporting Cultivators™ from around the world to create businesses that not only serve their supporters and make the world a better place – but which build income streams for the people behind them (I also give away a TON of advice on how to educate, elevate, and enrich the lives of youth and young adults).

My Journey: From Teacher to Full Time Youth Practitioner

My name is Regina Coley and I founded Leading Ladies of Legacy in 2011 after having seen a need in my local community for more girls needing guidance on how to be ladies and embrace their confidence. I chose the program creation route because I’d witnessed over the years programs use their safe space and time to amplify ideas, advocate, and grow community.

The first few years dragged on because honestly I had no idea how to start and run a program; I taught in the classroom and made an assumption that it’d be the same skill different environment but I was wrong. After figuring out what created the greatest impact for youth and seeing and tracking impact I decided I wanted to commit myself to my organization full time – not knowing that that decision would change the direction of my life in many ways.

My first year full time I grew my program attendees from 22 girls to now having served and spoken to 1000+ girls and counting. Working with these girls gave me confidence to start numerous other niche-focused businesses which in the hope of paying for my life expenses I started to teach myself to make money from. Now I have the flexibility to work from home with my five children and run my youth empowerment business!

This Blog Was Born

I started this blog as a way to share what I was learning about youth, education, parenting, mentoring, and program development and in the hope of meeting others on the same journey. I also love to share stories of being a mom of my own large family of soon to be six, the spiritual gift of teaching, purpose, and the arduous process of leadership.

While a blog about youth development may seem a little strange – it turns out that many others shared my dream of making a living by doing what they love without the constriction of a classroom setting, writing and speaking on topics that they are passionate about and this blog is quickly growing to be a center for learning for more Cultivators™ from around the world.

This is now so much more than a blog.

The blog itself has almost 100 articles, tutorials, and youth resources but on this site you’ll also find my new podcast Called to Cultivate™, a series of helpful ebooks and courses– plus much more.

What Do You Need Help With?
