Testimonial by Dixon Edwards
I met Ms. Tawanna Heyward-Bey more than five years ago, when we were introduced by my payroll company who happened to be one of her business payroll clients. They introduced her to me as a Human Resources and Recruitment expert. All these years later, I can still say, the introduction was a great idea and I value my business relationship with her today as a trusted adviser and consultant.Dixon Edwards, Retired Dallas Cowboys Linebacker 3x Super Bowl Champions (XXVII, XXVIII, XXX)

MODULE 1 – Start-Up to Build Up
If you want to start and grow a thriving business, you must get in “business shape” for the work ahead to make it happen. I call this “start-up to “build-up” because it requires the right foundation to launch and land 6 to 7 figure contracts. Getting in business shape does not require a diet or exercise in the conventional sense of these words, but you need to be sure you have the skills, and knowledge for the business venture you are about to launch. In this module, we will begin to coach you through a pre-opening check-up on your mindset, entrepreneurship traits, and preparing for business.
Bottom line, it is essential that your business game plan is closely aligned with those needed by the business idea you have in mind and we help you get clear on structuring your business. As your coach, in this program, I know you may not have all the expertise you need to do everything, but each module and training lesson (including our weekly coaching and training calls) are designed to introduce you to the knowledge and resources necessary to fill in the gaps in your niche and expertise. Let’s Begin with “Start-Up to Build-Up.”

Coach Tawanna changed everything about my trucking business with her certification services and support. I could not have successfully completed or done this process without her expertise. When I spoke with the agency, they were blown away by my application process because it was done exactly the way they expected! Now I have my MBE and getting calls from major corporations to subcontract and partner! Thank you Coach Tawanna for everything!!

GET CERTIFIED AS WBE & WOSB! I contacted Coach Tawanna during the fall of last year when I decided to start my own business. Coach Tawanna showed me that there is a way as a black woman to “get a piece of the pie” in the male dominated field that I participate in. Coach Tawanna suggested I pursue both the WBE and WOSB certifications through WBENC. It wasn’t easy. Coach Tawanna was available to not only answer my questions during the application process, but also upbuild me to stay focused and stay the course. Coach Tawanna went over and beyond supporting me in obtaining both the WBE & WOSB certifications. It took around six months from starting the application to receiving both certificates. It was hard but I made it with Coach Tawanna’s support. THANK YOU COACH TAWANNA!!!!!

My name is Bobra A. Moore – Williams, owner of Annette’s Daycare Center Too!, LLC in Dallas, TX. This written testimonial is to attest my experiences with the Get Certified Done-For-You and how my experiences with Coach Tawanna has helped impact my daycare business. I contacted Coach Tawanna in December 2020. During this time of our association, Coach Tawanna was able to coach me through the certification process for minorities or women-owned businesses (MWBE). This was very important for me, as this was one of my goals that I wanted to accomplish because of the many opportunities and resources that would be available for my business and to help my community. Going through the certification process with Coach Tawanna allowed me to understand the many aspects of small black businesses in my community and how to leverage other businesses opportunities with this certification. I am looking forward to identifying as a MWBE and know that this will greatly impact my relationships with other identified businesses with this certification in the future. Thank you Coach Tawanna for taking the time to work with me on this goal…you are truly appreciated! Bob Bobra A. Moore CEO/Founder Williams, owner of Annette’s Daycare Center Too! Dallas, Texas

Thank you also for ALWAYS responding to my notes and messages no matter what time of day it was. You are GOD sent and I look forward to takiing your MBE Certification courses and our future relationship ?! May GOD continue to bless you so that you can continue blessing others! Kimberly Wilson, CEO of 40 West Xpress Las Vegas, NV
The MBE application process was intimidating when I started doing this on my own. The amount of paperwork and details the application is asking for is daunting. After trying to put up the paperwork together by myself for about a couple of months, I was nowhere close to what is required, and I gave up. Then, I started looking for someone to help me in the process and came across Tawanna, founder of Heyward-Bey International. Coach Tawanna helped me thoroughly in getting all the paperwork put in place exactly how the MBE people want to see. Finally, we filed the application, and I was expecting the process to take 45-90 days from that point. Just two days later, I got a call from the MBE agency asking for an interview the next day. I said yes, and the interview went well the next day. The interviewer said the paperwork was so meticulously done and everything was simply perfect and was surprised to see all the paperwork done just right in the first go. She had asked several questions about the business and I could answer all the questions with confidence, as Tawanna had coached me and had me involved in the all the paperwork assembly and that helped a lot in answering all the questions. Two days later, my business is MBE certified. Thanks to Tawanna, a long and strenuous process supposed to take 45-90 days processing time was done in under one week. I attribute it mainly to the knowledge and guidance of Tawanna in the whole process. Now I am looking forward to taking advantage of this MBE certification in giving a boost to my business. Thank you so much for taking care of my MBE application. Ravi, Owner MCCARTHY'S PHARMACY New York, New York

First of all, I wish I had this book before I started my certification process. I had a ton of questions and nowhere to turn. I still had a number of questions while waiting to get approved so, I ordered the Get Certified book. The step by step layout of this book addressed many of my issues and remaining questions. It’s an easy read, I felt like I was talking with two friends giving you great business advice. Theresa North Brunswick, New Jersey www.designlab5.com
“IT WAS A MILLION DOLLAR CALL” Ms. Tawanna Heyward-Bey was referred to me by a mutual friend and colleague Attorney Kim Bell-Andrew out of Washington, D.C. As we were chatting and catching up on life in general, Kim asked me how my day was going. I immediately expressed to her about a class that I was attending with the SBA (Small Business Administration) inside of North Park Mall at the Microsoft Center location. This triggered Kim to mention Ms. Heyward-Bey’s name and contact information via Facebook. Kim told me that Ms. Heyward-Bey would be a great person to network with. She’s an awesome woman of God, Entrepreneur, Mentor, and Go-getter!!! You ladies must connect today! I will send her your contact information as soon as we hang up. At that moment, my antennas went OFF!! Not shortly afterward, Ms. Heyward-Bey messaged me on Facebook. I responded with my cell phone number. She then set a time and day for us to converse. Wow!! When we did connect it was like-minds destined to meet. Ms. Heyward-Bey mentored, educated, directed and set a plan in motion. Assisting me in completing all my certifications from unforeseen opportunities. Her insight on “how to do and what to do” is enormously amazing!! The information, guidance, and direction she delivered were golden! It was so powerful, motivating and obtainable. That literally “I couldn’t sleep” the ideas were flowing like a river. With Ms. Heyward-Bey consulting me, I’ll be able to move forward in my certification process more accurately and efficiently. I couldn't help but say: “IT WAS A MILLION DOLLAR CALL” I am honored to have Ms. Tawanna Heyward-Bey! Thank you!!
Nena L. Bradford-Hayden, Nena Finds, CEO/Owner
Tawanna Heyward-Bey is the definition of a true entrepreneur. As a business owner, she has reached new heights and positioned herself as a leader in her industry. She has also continued to be a strong advocate for the DBE/WBE/MBE industry by providing avenues for business owners to educate themselves on how to leverage their business and make their talents profitable. I have had the pleasure of working with Tawanna through the Greater Southwest Black Chamber of Commerce, where she is a Board Director. As a Director she has continued to promote economic development and the inclusion of programs which utilize these minority and women-owned firms. Her efforts are innumerable and her motives genuine.
Small Business Program Coordinator
Before meeting and building a relationship with Tawanna, I had no knowledge or idea that minority business certifications existed. Through her mentorship and coaching, I gained valuable knowledge about certification that has increased my business revenues. Before Tawanna shared the value of certifications with me, I was working hard with little results. I had a few small contracts but the certification has opened the door to a new world of opportunities for larger contracts. With her business resources and coaching through the process, I was able to partner with a major company on a large contract with a school district; which has made a powerful impact on my business. I am thrilled and thankful to say that we are two years in, with a signed contract for another three years to go!
CEO/Owner of Absolute Resource Solutions
As I became more aware of Tawanna’s experience, expertise and contacts, and, recognizing that she had sold her staffing Company and was available to pursue other opportunities, I eagerly introduced her to a staffing and payroll company that was a client for which I served as General Counsel. As soon as Tawanna and my client reached an agreement concerning the terms of their relationship, Tawanna commenced utilizing her expertise and relationships to develop various opportunities for my client. Very quickly after my client and Tawanna formed a relationship, Tawanna expertise in Business Development and bidding on public/private contracts was able to arrange and negotiated a contract between my client and Bexar County, in San Antonio, Texas whereby my client agreed to provide staffing and payroll services for Bexar County to support all national, state and local election activities. The resulting contract provided for my client to receive revenue during the five-year term of the contract in an amount of approximately $10,000,000. But for Tawanna’s exceptional experience, expertise and relationships, the contract would never have been entered into between my client and Bexar County. I cannot think of any manner by which to endorse Tawanna’s consulting and coaching abilities and expertise in generating and maintaining business relationships and I am confident that any relationship with Ms. Tawanna Heyward-Bey will have positive winning results!
Marshal W. Dooley, DOOLEY & ASSOCIATES
I met Tawanna years ago while sourcing Business Development professionals within a North Texas IT placement firm. She was (and continues to be) extremely professional, engaging, motivated, honest, a good listener and conscientiously meticulous. It was evident right away she was going to be successful so I decided to retain her contact information. Since then, things have come full circle. I've had the opportunity to work with and work for Tawanna on very large projects and extremely competitive business proposals. Her public speaking, networking and partnership-building skills seem to be what immediately sets her apart from the crowd. She prepares, thinks through and means exactly what she says and then delivers on it! It is a pleasure to know, work with or work for, Tawanna who is a serious force to reckon with.
Senior IT Corporate Recruiter
I’ve had the pleasure of having Tawanna Heyward-Bey as a mentor/business coach. My search on Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) certifications led me to find a YouTube video posted by Lataina Michelle and Tawanna Heyward-Bey on the subject. I immediately reached out. The first encounter was electrifying! These women are extremely knowledgeable about business, networking, marketing and the MBE/WBE process. They were and still are huge supporters of my personal / business goals, positive mentors, and well versed motivational business coaches. Tawanna is very passionate about empowering others as well as keeping them steadfast in moving forward. Both of these ladies are true gems and inspirational, truly an honor to have worked with them and having them in my corner!

Thank you so much for your book. I bought it online and after reading the first two chapters, I didn't know the power that I have been a service-connected disabled female veteran with my certification. I can't wait to receive it within 90 days. I can't wait for your next book. Knowledge is truly POWER.
