Meet the Founder

Deanna Balkcom


Hello there, I’m thrilled to connect with you! With 19 years of experience as an HR Consultant & Coach, my journey has been anything but conventional, with roles spanning HR, sales, entrepreneurship, and coaching. As a business owner and co-founder of a few startups, I’ve played a pivotal role in building successful businesses, honing my skills in strategic planning, operations management, and business development.
My passion for empowering individuals led me to delve into the realm of business coaching, where I’ve had the privilege of guiding aspiring solopreneurs on their entrepreneurial journey. Whether it’s building online businesses, generating passive revenue streams, or launching coaching and consulting programs, I thrive on helping others turn their visions into reality.

In my HR consultancy career, I’ve collaborated with clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies, delivering tailored solutions in HR strategy, organizational development, talent management, and more. My expertise lies in driving impactful change, optimizing HR processes, and fostering a culture of growth and innovation within organizations. Plus, I’m an enthusiastic “HR tech geek” who loves HRIS implementations!

Beyond my professional pursuits, I’m deeply committed to continuous learning, holding an MBA, an MS in Management and Leadership, and certifications in SHRM-SCP, SPHR, and DEI. I believe in the power of education and remain dedicated to lifelong learning to stay ahead in an ever-evolving landscape.

When I’m not immersed in business and HR, I enjoy unwinding with a good book and spending quality time with my family. With authenticity and meaningful connections at the forefront, I approach every interaction with a genuine desire to make a positive impact. Whether through consultancy, coaching, or entrepreneurial ventures, I’m dedicated to leaving a lasting legacy of empowerment and transformation.

I’m excited about the prospect of collaborating with you and leveraging my diverse skill set to help you achieve your goals. Let’s embark on this journey together and create something meaningful!
