Joi comes from a male dominating financial background where she would soar in her Executive Sales Position.  Her passion for people and helping them to reach their desired goals made it easy to launch her Women’s empowerment organization.  Although she olds her degrees from Rutgers University, her passion for seeing people Happy was easy in her decision making for leaving corporate America.  In January of 2012 she would join her husband and work the family owned and operated business called LOC SOC where she could free up time to do the work she so desperately loved.  Although she founded Progressive Achievers Inc. in 2006 she was now able to invest more of herself into growing the organization.  Joi saw the importance for women to be nurtured regularly and also began to see the same need in young firls, so, in 2010 she would form the inspiring young mentors program and her Leading Ladies.

To date, she is busy in what she has a passion for and add another nugget to the growing empire.  She would term the phrase “Your Morning Dose of Verbal Caffeine to describe the once a week Monday Morning call “Being Your Best”.  There is where she and Gleshia Joyner Givens of ‘The Joyner Pitch” would gather various topics and seek for speakers to host this 7am call.  Knowing the importance of branding, Joi would choose to launch her own persona sight where she could now use this sight as a platform by which she can get other personal messages out.  She is dedicated in her mission and works tirelessly to accomplish the task of helping women and your girls to reach their goals.
