VaShaun Nicole Mosby, CEO and Serial Entrepreneur

VaShaun Mosby shows small business owners and those
pursuing a career how they can achieve prosperity. A native
of Lexington, VaShaun left the corporate sector after 20 years
to become an entrepreneur in August 2015. And she expanded on her
altruistic vision of entrepreneurship when she relocated to Louisville in
September 2020. “I didn’t plan on becoming a serial entrepreneur... all of
my businesses evolved from a need I saw in the community,” she says.
Now, VaShaun runs four businesses under the VaShaun Nicole Group,
whose mission is to help small business owners maximize their company’s
growth. “I want to show small businesses that we don’t have to be small
. I wanted to run my businesses as a corporation,” she says.

VaShaun Nicole Enterprises: VaShaun became interested in writing an
autobiography about overcoming the struggles in her life. But a chat with
Julia Royston, a local publisher, unexpectedly resulted in VaShaun opening
her own publishing house called VaShaun Nicole Enterprises in 2016. She
published two autobiographical books titled Behind Her Eyes (2016) and 365
Days of Attacks but God (2018). In a deal with Barnes and Noble and Joseph-Beth Booksellers, VaShaun did a series of tours and inspirational book
signings with the hope of being an encourager for women.

VaShaun Nicole Consulting: People with criminal records often have more difficulty finding employment, but VaShaun developed an idea
to eliminate the obstacle through VaShaun Nicole Consulting. The
staffing agency, created in 2018, offers clients professional development
training courses focused on helping them find a sustainable career.
Vauntech Solutions: While working with the clients from VaShaun
Nicole Consulting, VaShaun noticed they didn’t have an efficient way
of finding resources that could help them support their families. So, she
started Vauntech Solutions in 2020 and is developing technology to solve
the problem.

The tech project will be completed in December. “Some people don’t have access to the technology needed to access welfare or
find housing. Where is the technology that will help people find housing
and locate food? The goal is to innovate technology used in social
services spaces.” VaShaun says solving this problem became her priority
when one of her clients from the staffing agency had an unfortunate
experience. The client was on his way to work and had a scheduled meeting
with his parole officer when his car broke down. He couldn’t use his phone
because the battery didn’t work. Consequently, law enforcement sent the
client back to jail for what they perceived as a parole violation. VaShaun
says having technology that enabled him to contact his parole
officer quickly could have changed the outcome.

VaShaun Nicole Advisors: Also established in 2020, VaShaun Nicole
Advisors provide over 130 professional development training classes for
entrepreneurs. These courses are designed to enhance a client’s skill set.
The company also offers courses for young professionals in organizational
development.


And she isn’t done yet. Philanthropy has become a significant part of VaShaun’s
future initiatives. She plans to start the VaShaun Nicole Foundation, which will provide financial assistance to Black students who want
to attend college or pursue a trade. Making a monetary investment in
the community is her principal objective. Within the next two years, she
also will open VaShaun Nicole Properties – a company that will assist
entrepreneurs in securing a workspace and provide funding for people
seeking homeownership. “I know my purpose is servicing my community
and ensuring everyone has equal access to resources and equal access to
success ... [it’s about] being more community-focused and driven and
putting my money where my mouth is.”
