Meet Yasha I empower you to envision your goals, create a plan, and succeed by any means necessary.

  • At the age of 25, she decided that the mediocrity was enough. She packed up her clothes, some family heirlooms, some precious belongings into her car and made the 12-hour trip to Chicago from Mississippi. That was 17 years ago.

Since making that trip, she's never looked back. Throughout her journey in the Windy City, she has stumbled many times: multiple job losses, many failed relationships, multiple bankruptcies, medical issues, and near foreclosure. But God had more in store for her.

Yasha is now the proud owner of 5 businesses and has recently completed a Master of Computer Science degree with a 3.6 GPA from Saint Xavier University. She ranks in the upper 5% of African-American women who hold the MBA/MCS dual degree in the United States and is the 2nd African-American woman to complete the program at the university. She will begin her doctoral studies in January 2020.

She's always been a dreamer...

Where many see technology as a challenge, Yasha views each dilemma she's presented with as an opportunity to ultimately help companies generate revenue. For the last 19 years, she has built a reputation for being able to recognize challenges in marketing and technology and has proven to be skilled in discovering a myriad of ways to solve them with innovative techniques. Throughout her career, she has worked with multiple Fortune 500 companies, helping to establish strategies and processes.

Yasha is a budding author, coach, consultant, and speaker. She also is the proud owner of 5 businesses, Yasha Sterling Marketing Agency, Surely Shaped (a health/wellness company), BrainBomb Tees (an t-shirt company), Sterling Style (an online apparel/shoes/accessories store), and her latest venture, BizMePlease! (a consultancy for entrepreneurs). In 2016, she received a Values in Action award for her work on Anthem's Reimagine website. In 2015, she won two of Panduit's coveted Bravo! awards for Technical Expertise and Quality for her work on the company's Knowledge Center microsite and its Quick Build Harness Board System landing page, respectively. Between 2011 and 2013, she and her respective teams won awards in email marketing and website design from various associations and publications. Moreover, she has single-handedly led the design and development of 35 small business websites, increasing each of their client bases by at least 20%. Her unwavering passion for innovative technology has led to multiple speaking engagements and consulting opportunities.

Yasha holds a bachelor's degree in English from Jackson State University and a M.B.A. in Marketing and E-Commerce and a Master of Arts in Applied Computer Science, both from Saint Xavier University. She also has certifications in Business/Entrepreneurship, Goal Success, and Workshop Facilitation. In January 2020, she will begin her doctoral studies in Business Administration at Northcentral University.

Yasha hopes to bring a voice to women, especially African-American women, who are underrepresented in technology. She hopes to use her education and expertise to bridge known gaps and encourage young women to establish themselves as powerhouses in the industry. If doors have to be kicked down to this, so be it!

Fueled by her passion of motivating and empowering others, she hopes to inspire others and look for the power from within to have their best life.

Here's what email service provider Constant Contact had to say about Yasha's speaking abilities:
