BIZ CREDIT ACADEMY
When it comes to positioning small business owners and startups for limitless growth, few people are more passionate about it than Tareka Coney, the founder of Certified Business Credit Professional and Biz Credit Academy.
As a multi-skilled entrepreneur, prolific author and in-demand speaker, she’s known for putting business owners “up on game” and arming them with the wisdom they need to build (or rebuild) their business and personal credit and, ultimately, secure business capital.
Recognizing that “credit is king,” Tareka has made it her nonstop mission to educate startups and small business owners on how to get their money right by first focusing on building (or restoring) their credit. Over the years, she has collaborated with major banks like BB&T and, in turn, has developed trustworthy reputations with multiple financial institutions. And it is because of her collaborative spirit and unwavering commitment to helping business owners become financially fit that her peers, colleagues, and clients have crowned her as the G.O.A.T. in the world of business credit.
When she is not rocking her crown as the Business Credit Xpert® and running her other businesses, Tareka is working to secure partnerships, such as the one she negotiated with Disney, on behalf of her nonprofit organization. Additionally, she hosts the “Business Informant” podcast, where she reveals rarely talked about secrets on all things business including credit, capital opportunities, company formation and structure, and so much more.
Also, Tareka is the creator of the Certified Business Credit Professional, an online course for business owners who not only want to create an excellent credit profile for themselves but also teach their clients how to do the same. Tareka’s success in mentoring hundreds of small business owners is backed by her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice with a minor in education from Florida A&M University and her master’s degree in education with a concentration in adult learning from the University of Phoenix.
When life happened and nearly knocked the wind out of her, Tareka chose to bet on herself. She invested over $40,000 in one year to gain the expertise she needed to turn her life around and show other ambitious goal getters how to do the same.
