Decide and Thrive LLC is committed to creating a small business that supports a more racially equitable society and economy. We care deeply about the Black Lives Matter movement and promise to support this movement and our part in this dismantling of systematic racism in the following ways:
We donate to Black Lives Matter every quarter. We typically share how much we donate when we do on our social media page.

We’re currently a very small, family run business. We’re owned and run by a 100% female team. As we grow, we’re committed to hiring through a racially equitable lens.
We’re honored to have had (and will continue to have) brave guests on our podcast that have been willing to share racial equity considerations in entrepreneurship. Below are some examples:
- Interview with the founders of the Sherman Phoenix on racial segregation, police brutality, entrepreneurship in disinvested neighborhoods, and racial equity in small businesses.
- Interview with Bola Sokunbi, founder of Clever Girl Finance, on founding a multiple six-figure business as a woman of color.
- Interview with Kayln Johnson, founder of Effie’s Paper, on building a business founded on Black Girl Magic.
If you’re interested in being a guest on our podcast or know someone that you think would be a fit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
