Who we are

I'm Maliquea, an Online Business Manager with a passion for planning and consulting. After successfully starting my own wedding planning business and booking clients immediately, I decided to take my passion for Project and Systems Management and turn it into a way to help Entrepreneurs overcome the frustration of handling the small stuff. I'm a lover of all things wedding, fresh flowers, and hot tea!

I'm D'Andre, a Wake Forest University Graduate that has a passion and drive for numbers. After receiving my B.S. in Finance and M.S. in Accountancy, I knew I wanted to apply my skills in a new way and redefine what it means to be an accountant.  I love seeing entrepreneurs thrive through financial freedom. When I'm not crunching numbers I love watching football, exercising and hangin' out with our Goldendoodle puppy Winston!

We got married on August 15, 2015! We call North Carolina our home, but we love to travel! When we aren't binge watching Netflix together we are probably serving at church or trying a new restaurant with friends!

Amazing Clients
Maliquea is such a breath of fresh air! She planned my entire social media campaign for the launch of my rebranding/website. I didn’t have to worry about the wording, the posting etc. She knew the best times for my business to post to reach the most followers. She is just amazing and made it a fun experience to work with her. I recommend her highly with no reservations.
